Copper pendant, East Chisenbury midden
This tiny object was found during September 2016 excavations undertaken by Wessex Archaeology working with the volunteers of Operation Nightingale and Breaking Ground Heritage, supported by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation. It comes from the base of the Late Bronze Age/Early Iron Age midden at East Chisenbury within the MOD Salisbury Plain Training Area.
This object is made of copper alloy and weighs just 3 grams. The loop indicates it was possibly worn as a pendant. Its date is currently unknown making it a unique find.
Due to its size of just being 24 mm high, a 105 mm macro lens fitted on a Canon EOS 5D was used to take the required photographs needed for processing in Photoscan. Photogrammetry by Kenneth Lymer.
