Ringerike style dragon, bridle cheekpiece, 6 cm, 10th-11th century, Essex

Recorded November 10, 2011. UKDFD Ref. No. 34709.

"Within Scandinavia, the Ringerike style is usually assigned to the late tenth and first half of the eleventh century on account of its inclusion in coin-dated hoards of this date (Wilson 1995, 182-83).
The style was broadly contemporary in England, where it is likely to have been introduced following the accession of the Danish King Cnut in 1016.", from Kershaw (2011).
