ONDERZOEK NAAR DE WUNALDUM-MATRIJS (FR.)
A die for making a cross-hatched pattern on gold foil was found during excavations on a dwelling mound at Wijnaldum, Friesland. The die has been analysed at the Ancient Monuments Labaratory of English Heritage and at the Department of Scientific Research of The British Museum, London. The XRF and SEM analyses show that the die is made of a leaded bronze. SEM photos show the irregularities in the pattern.
