Image of the feature "Loose Sculpture: Pieces thought to be from a lintel." at Kellington.
by Rita Wood.
Two pieces thought to be from a lintel. Found in excavation as threshhold of S doorway.
No obvious fit between the two pieces. Diagonal tooling evident. The pattern is a wavy, scrolling stem with trefoils of leaves in the spaces, sometimes with spiral ends, sometime with rounder, fruit-like blobs. On one stone the pattern ends and an eight-armed chip-carved star terminates the carving. For part of the run of the scrolling stem, there is a wide chamfer alongside.

|l. of partially-carved face||0.71m|
