A newly discovered piece of Saxon silver will soon be on display at the Norris Museum in St Ives.
The object is a "hooked tag", dating from approximately AD900. It was discovered during an archaeological dig at Stukeley Road, Huntingdon, on land that was about to be used for building homes.
The owner of the site, Nene Housing Society Ltd, has given the artefact to the Norris Museum.
The silver tag will be put on display on Friday - when Adam Broadway, Nene Housing's Development Director hands it over to St Ives Mayor Councillor Kevin Reynolds and the chairman of the Museum Committee, Councillor John Davies.
