This PhD will necessitate the careful examination of Limoges objects for signs of pre-depositional damage. In most cases this will be through an examination of the records of the PAS finds, but the aim is to also apply scientific techniques to better understand the metallic composition and biography of these items. The metal-detected artefacts will be compared to those from excavations and the surviving Limoges enamel objects in England. A sample of the Limoges objects in the British Museum will form the main comparative evidence, comprising 55 artefacts including pyxes, reliquaries, crucifixes, book covers, croziers, shrine figures, gemellions, and medallions.
