Found yesterday by Catherine Hawkins just above the 17th century layer was this Tallio cufflink. Created in England in the 18th century, you can see the depiction of a fox running across a landscape. Tallio was a word used by the traditional huntsman as a shout out during a fox hunt. These sleeve links were quite popular during the late 1700s and into the 1800s and would have been worn as two oval buttons attached together with a link.tallio
