Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An incomplete and slightly worn Early-Medieval (Anglo-Saxon) cast copper-alloy zoomorphic strap-end (c. 800-c. 900). This strap-end is a variant on the standard 9th-century strap-end, the Thomas Class A, Type 1. The top side is scalloped and the vertical sides diverge towards the base, where it is evenly rounded. The attachment end is broken and one of the 'leaves' is missing due to a horizontal break. The surviving part contains two circular rivet holes which have a diameter of c. 1.7mm. At the front, decoration is in the form of an incised naturalistic Trewhiddle-style animal in pr…

Copper alloy Brooch fragment. Cast fragment of an unusually small cruciform brooch comprising the lower bow and sub-triangular or shovel-shaped foot plate with the stub of a folded catch plate behind its upper extent.

Copper alloy with gilding traces, unidentified Object fragment. Cast object with one slightly tapered plain end broken at an apparent bifurcation into small spurs, and with the rest of its length of D section, knobbed or grooved into nine segments on the outside of its curve. The last or terminal segment is the largest and apparently unbroken. Gilding traces remain on the outer knobbed side. The object has been bent into an oval loop. Knobbed torcs and bangles are known from Later Iron Age contexts, but these were not usually gilded, a feature more to be expected in the Anglo-Saxon per…

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.
