Copper alloy Brooch fragment. Cast cruciform brooch fragment, comprising the lowest part of the bow, a collared moulding, a horse head foot with prominent eyebrows and eyes, and a trilobate or shamrock-leaf terminal which springs in two halves from the lower part of the horse head. A thin folded catch plate projects from the back, and there are a pair of deep grooves alongside it. The metal colour is unusual: scratches and abrasion have removed a green patina which appears more akin to a paint layer than a naturally modified surface, and reveal a grey metal below it. There would be no …

Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Copper alloy Mount. Cast plate with curved edges and slightly concave ends; the outer edge describes an arc which would, if continued, achieve an overall diameter of 80mm. The display face bears interlace ornament rendered in low relief within a continuous border. The irregularity of the interlace suggests it may conceal figurative elements or parts of a longer continuous pattern - not unravelled by this reporter - rather than being a simple more regular strap-work pattern. This may suggest a Middle Saxon rather than a later date. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-800. Length: 33.5m…

Copper alloy Unidentified Object. Cast object with a tapered hook at one end, flat at the other. One long edge, that lying on the outer edge, is of angled or V-section form. One flat side is divided into compartments by five or more vertically incised lines with further diagonal and horizontal strokes, with dense and possibly linear arrangements of possibly stamped circles of diameter 1.5mm within the fields afforded by the incised elements of the design - the overall appearance being somewhat like superimposed games of noughts and crosses. The design now shows as tan figures against a…

An incomplete Early-Medieval (Anglo-Saxon) cast copper-alloy Style 1 possible disc mount, possibly from a shield boss (c. 500-c. 600). This zoomorphic object is incomplete, the sides being absent due to damage. There is no means of attachment at the rear which is plain and flat. However, it may have possessed rivet holes further out towards the missing rim or could have been fixed by solder. It is now sub-circular in plan and has a central pellet which appears to have been decorated but is now indeterminate. The pellet is enclosed by an annulet with chip carved animal parts beyond. …

Copper alloy Strap End. Long narrow cast strap end, Thomas Class B Type 1. The plate has a bifurcated end with a pair of stitching holes, a very slightly tapering body which is decorated with a panel of curvilinear interlace, and a long snout with sub-rectangular ears added at the end of the interlace panel as a continuation of that decorative field, and with indented sides to the snout. A fragment of mineral preserved leather remains in the split end. Thomas suggests that this type of strap end was more common in southern England than north of the Wash, and therefore perhaps more ch…

A cast copper-alloy pin from an Early-Medieval single-loop buckle. The pin is of 'shield-on-tongue' type; however, the integrally cast, flat-sectioned plate actually resembles a violin. The back of this plate is semicircular; a narrower, concave-sided projection extends towards the shaft, the inner end having a vertical groove in each of its two outer side faces. The shaft is generally of semicircular section, but there is a flattened area on top. The sides of the shaft converge towards the downward-curving tip, the flat underside of which slopes upwards and inwards. A casting seam ex…

It measures 28.9 mm in length, 13.5 mm wide, 1.1 …
