- Object: The Dunaverny Flesh Hook
Fleshhook with bird ornaments: the three bronze ferrules were originally linked by pieces of oak shaft, thus creating a long-handled instrument; a surviving fragment of oak is inset with copper alloy strips in herring-bone design; the bird models seem to represent a pair of corvids, perhaps ravens, and a pair of swans with their cygnets.
