Undley bracteate

The Undley bracteate is a 5th century bracteate found in Undley Common, near Lakenheath, Suffolk. It bears the earliest known inscription that can be argued to be in Anglo-Frisian Futhorc (as opposed to Common Germanic Elder Futhark). The image on the bracteate is an adaptation of an Urbs Roma coin type issued by Constantine the Great, conflating the helmeted head of the emperor and the image of Romulus and Remus suckled by the wolf on one face. With a diameter of 2.3 cm, it weighs 2.24 grams.

Located at 52.4, 0.48 (Lat. / Lng.), about 2 miles away.

Lakenheath Fen RSPB reserve

Lakenheath Fen RSPB reserve is located on the Norfolk/Suffolk border between Lakenheath and Hockwold cum Wilton adjacent to Lakenheath railway station.

Located at 52.4458, 0.5088 (Lat. / Lng.), about 2 miles away.
