Lead Disc Brooch fragment. Segment, perhaps about one quarter, of a disc brooch with a moulded relief design perhaps including one arm of a Greek cross with pellets at the ends of the lines defining its arm, and with a series of pellets along the edge of an adjacent field. There appears to have been a plain border to the design. An integrally cast tubular catch plate or socket remains on the back, Patinated overall, and probably cut rather than torn. This may bear comparison with brooches of the Borre style, is one of a class of cheap brooches worn by the lesser sort, often sporting Ch…

Lead Spindle Whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with an off-centre tapered moulded aperture of diameter 10.5mm, probably Walton Rogers form A1. The form imitates, and may even be cast from, a cattle femur caput. The generous aperture suggests an Anglo-Scandinavian rather than an earlier date. The mass indicates this could be used to ply a cord. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diameter: 30.6mm, Thickness: 15.6mm, Weight: 69.67gms.

Lead Spindle Whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 9.5mm, Walton Rogers form A1. Patinated overall. The size of aperture may suggest this to date to the Anglo-Scandinavian period. Numerous examples are known from 10th-century Coppergate, where cattle femur head whorls of this form were especially favoured. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diameter: 23.4mm, Thickness: 12.8mm, Weight: 30.78gms.

Lead Spindle Whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with one larger and one smaller flat face and a near-central moulded tapering aperture of diameter 8mm, Walton Rogers form A2. Patinated overall. The surface gives the impression of light fluting, albeit worn. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-850. The mass would permit this to spin a yarn. Diameter: 19.8mm, Thickness: 9.1mm, Weight: 15.21gms.

County: Lincolnshire

Lead possible Buckle. Cast frame for a thick single looped D shaped buckle. As the material is unsuitable for a fastener given its softness under stress, this might be a cheap version for purely decorative use, or a toy. The modelling does not seem fine or detailed enough for this to represent a maker's trial piece. The form recalls that of later Anglo-Scandinavian buckles, a point of some interest given that the period also sees crude brooches and - occasionally - strap ends made in lead as well as of more robust materials. This may alternatively be an annular line weight, though the …

Lead Weight. Cast cylindrical object with a central moulded aperture of diameter 4.5mm, and with five integrally cast round-ended lugs, c.8mm wide and 8-11mm long, which were probably formed as projections from one end of the cylinder, and are now pressed flat against its sides. That end without lugs appears lightly bevelled. The mass may suggest this to represent sixteen sub-units (of 4.07gms) of the Scandinavian system for the measurement of silver bullion. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diameter (clear of lugs): 21.2mm, Thickness: 15.5mm, Weight: 65.24gms.

Lead Spindle Whorl fragment. Cast whorl of cylindrical form with a moulded aperture of diameter c.8mm, Walton Rogers form B. The whorl had accumulated a thick white patina before being cut in half, probably with a knife and certainly forcefully; the cut surfaces bear only light patina. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-850. Diameter: 25.4mm, Thickness: 8mm, Weight: 13.58gms.

Lead Weight. Cut half of a flat cylindrical discoid weight with lightly bevelled sides. Scored on one side, as if its further subdivision had been considered but not executed. Patinated overall. The mass may suggest this to represent eight sub-units of 4.43gms, as used in the Viking Kingdom of York and Dublin for silver bullion transactions. The original weight of which this was half would therefore have amounted to 16 Dublin units, and possible to three ore/ora of c.24gms. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 875-950. Diameter: 33.5mm, Thickness: 7.6mm, Weight: 35.57gms.

Lead alloy Strap End. Cast tongue shaped plate with a split end retaining a single one of a pair of rivets of diameter c.2.5mm, Thomas Class E Type 1. One side of the plate is decorated by moulded 'fleshy' foliage of the Winchester style, possibly inhabited by birds - the best candidate observed by this reporter has a fan-shaped tail and stands facing the centre with its leg pointing to the adjacent belt end of the plate. The other end of the plate is worn and probably lost. Though the style is Anglo-Saxon Thomas observes examples come from Viking York, and the imitation of better jewe…

Lead Bead. Cast flat-ended biconical or barrel shaped bead with a central moulded aperture of diameter 3.5-6mm. The aperture is too small to admit a spindle, but the form is comparable to that of toggles used as drawstring fasteners for a girdle, and sometimes confused with whorls in the archaeological literature (e.g. Smith 1912, 153 and Lethbridge 1931, 76, cited in Drinkall and Foreman 1998, page 294); and, albeit in different material, of Early Anglo-Saxon sword beads. The surface of the object is crazed, as if from destructive corrosion, and patinated overall. Suggested date: Earl…

Lead Weight. Conical weight, possibly for a fishing net, made by rolling lead sheet of thickness 3-4.3mm with a butted seam, leaving an aperture of diameter 8mm. Patinated overall. This is a shorter version of tubular net sinkers, as recorded from Middle Saxon Flixborough, though the form continued in use for later smaller line weights. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-850. Diameter: 17.5mm, Height/Length: 14.8mm, Thickness: 4.3mm, Weight: 11.77gms.

The detail is moulded, and comprises (as illustrated here) three series of vertically aligned fluted fields with a central area of horizontal ornament. A drilled hole of diameter c.2mm may be for fixing. Suggested date: possibly Early Medieval, 410-850. Length: 27.7mm, Width: 18.5mm, Thickness: 2.3mm, Weight: 2.89gms.

Copper alloy Brooch fragment. Cast concavo-convex hollow backed side or top knob from an Early Anglo-Saxon Cruciform Brooch. A hemispherical or half round terminal with two deep moulded grooves, and with a rib between and after the grooves. Incised decoration comprises a finely incised line at the inner end of the terminal, and similar paired lines on the ribs. A sub-rectangular bevelled tab and a probably drilled fixing hole relate to the attachment of the knob to the head of the brooch; the outer end bears two rust spots and a pinhole within suggesting the loss of an iron fixing pin,…

Copper alloy Buckle frame. Cast single looped D shaped buckle frame with a thickened and rounded outer edge, angular sides, and devolved beast head terminals gripping a markedly narrowed strap bar; the terminals retain pits marking the eyes and the stubs of ears, and the outer edge a central pin slot, though all detail is worn. The reddish tint to the metal is characteristic of Anglo-Scandinavian material. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 900-1050. Length: 13.6mm, Height: 17.5mm, Thickness (outer edge): 4.3mm, Weight: 2.66gms.

Lead possible Spindle Whorl. Cast discoid object with a central moulded aperture of diameter 9.5mm. Patinated overall. The flat sided or short cylindrical form may relate this to whorls of Walton Rogers form B. However, one side is distinguished by seven thin (c.2mm) flaps, which appear to have been integrally cast, and which are now flattened against the surface of one side of the whorl. This fringe was probably made by casting an object with a projecting rim of height c.8mm, and then cutting out rectangular billets to produce a castellated or battlemented form. This form is thought t…

Lead Weight. Cast bun-shaped weight with sunken patches on its flat upper and lower sides. Lightly patinated overall. The recesses may mark the loss of embedded objects, which are considered a diagnostic feature of Early Medieval (probably Middle Saxon to Viking-Age) weights. Their apparent loss tends to vitiate fine calculation based on the mass of the object, though in an Anglo-Saxon context this might have represented 16 drachma (of 3.41gms) - as per the Roman system; or, with allowance for a small missing value, perhaps fourteen Scandinavian units (of 4.07gms).

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. The bow bears four groups of closely-spaced horizontal lines, possibly incised to enhance moulded detail; the lower two groups on moulded ridges stand a little proud of the rest, and the upper groups are separated by nicks or recesses in the sides of the bow. The foot is entirely plain. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 500-600. Length: 35.7mm, Width: 13.7mm, Thickness (cl…

Copper alloy Brooch fragment. Cast cruciform brooch fragment comprising the battered remains of a rectangular head plate, a triple horizontal moulding, and an expanded area below it. The vertical stub of a catch plate remains behind the head plate and moulding. The object is so severely abraded as to leave it uncertain whether it had been damaged by intense heat before deposition. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 500-600. Length: 40.4mm, Width: 25.3mm, Thickness (clear of catch plate): 5.2mm, Weight: 15.11gms.
