Make do and mend!

A very experienced detectorist, was certain they had found a piece of bronze pot sherd. A closer examination revealed 2 holes and a pattern tapering to a point. The artefact was almost bent in half, so a gentle prodding and straightening, meant that the artefact snapped in two.

Being ever so resourceful and not wishing to seperate the 2 pieces, a quick trip to the shops to purchase some superglue and a very careful glueing back together, meant that any embarrassment had been avoided.

Hopefully, the saxon strap end will look as good as new.
