Decorated bone panels

These three fragments with simple decoration, and piercings which would allow them to be fixed to an underlying frame, belong to a class of object which has been found on various Norman sites in Britain.

The long narrow strip and flat rectangular sheet are likely to come from a box or possibly a gaming board. The triangular plaque is rather more unusual and might perhaps come from a box with sloping sides.
