Bronze Green Man
Andy Elwell from Weymouth recently got in touch with The Company to give us some information about the fantastic Green Man he owns:
It was found in a farmers field about 16 years ago, just on the outskirts of Weymouth, Dorset. It is about the size of a 10p piece and has been dated by the British Museum to the 12th or 13th Centuries. It is made from bronze but at one time was probably partially silver plated. The British Museum thought that the unusual fixing could place it as a horse bridle decoration.

We welcome Andy as the 70th Member of The Company of The Green Man!
