Finglesham village sign
Finglesham village sign
The sign design is a copy of a Saxon belt buckle found here.
Two graves from a well-preserved sixth and seventh-century Anglo-Saxon cemetery at Finglesham have yielded a bronze pendant and a gilt buckle with designs that are related to each other and which are clearly symbolic of the cult of the god Woden. Commentary, and images of both objects, can be found in S. Chadwick Hawkes, "Finglesham. A Cemetery in East Kent" and "The Archaeology of Conversion: Cemeteries", both in Campbell, The Anglo-Saxons, pp. 2425 and 4849. Ref:- Wikipedia
