Breamore is a village in Hampshire where a brass “Byzantine bucket” was discovered by a metal detectorist, leading to the excavation of an Anglo-Saxon burial ground. After presenting a live dig from Breamore in 2001, the site was so interesting that Time Team returned for a rare four-day investigation, discovering unusual double burials, more buckets, and a spearhead, all of which shed new light on the Saxon period.

These socks are ribbed and feature a Strong-style heel. Designed to play nicely with self-striping yarn, they knit up surprisingly fast. But the fun part comes in the heel turn, where some fancy stitchwork creates a nice diamond of purl stitches, much like a spearhead.

The Aston Project was named in honour of Prof. Mick Aston, a regular member of Channel Four’s Time Team. As I watched episode after episode of Mick wearing all sorts of stripy jumpers, gloves and hats, the concept for the project came to me: sock patterns made just for self-striping yarn!

Breamore was featured on Time Team in season 9, episode 13: Seven Buckets and a Buckle.
