Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire

Lead weight. Cast discoid plano-convex weight, probably cast in an open mould, patimated overall. The mass may suggest this weight observes the Viking Dublin module of 4.43gms for transactions involving silver bullion, and that it represents four (slightly overweight) such units. The duration of the use of this postulated system of measurement must be uncertain given the contested status of Lindsey through the 10th century, though the region was in the ambit of the Viking 'kingdom' of York and Dublin. A larger weight of similar form and suspected date was reported from the same locatio…

Lead weight. Cast discoid plano-convex weight, probably cast in an open mould, lightly patinated overall. The mass may suggest this weight observes the Viking Dublin module of 4.43gms for transactions involving silver bullion, and that it represents ten (slightly underweight) such units. The duration of the use of this postulated system of measurement must be uncertain given the contested status of Lindsey through the 10th century, though the region was in the ambit of the Viking 'kingdom' of York and Dublin. A smaller weight of similar form and suspected date was reported from the sam…

Copper alloy Coin. Northumbrian Styca possibly in the name of Eanred (808-840), possibly an irregular issue, and, if so, possibly related to the accession of Osbehrt c.850 (Pirie, E. 1991, 'The Northumbrian Coins: single finds and the purse hoard', in Armstrong et al. 1991, Excavations at Lurk Lane Beverley 1979-82, Sheffield Excavation Reports 1, J. Collis, Sheffield, pages 164-167). Obverse description: Off-centre pellet, large initial cross probably with triangular base.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Silver Ingot. Cast and hammered rectangular ingot with slightly indented sides and ends. The mass may suggest this to represent two units of either of the predominant Viking Age systems of measurement for bullion, based on units of 4.07gms (in Scandinavia) or 4.34gms (Viking Dublin, and by extension the contemporary 'kingdom' of York). The ingot would be very slightly overweight in the former case and very slightly underweight in the latter - in both cases by a small fraction of a gram. Bullion finds from northern England are attributed to both the Viking heyday and to the period of En…

Lead Spindle Whorl. Cast whorl of slightly tapered cylindrical form, possibly Walton Rogers form A2 with two flat faces, one larger than the other. A central moulded aperture of length 12mm and width 4.8mm has been distorted along with the whorl, which is squashed. Patinated overall. The mass would have permitted this to be used to spin a yarn. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Length: 22.8mm, Width: 16.7mm, Thickness: 10.3mm, Weight: 19.25gms.

Lead Spindle Whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with central moulded aperture of diameter 10.7mm, Walton Rogers form A1. The surface is rough, but completely unpatinated, arguing either a recent date - perhaps unlikely given the diagnostic form - or recent disturbance from a sealed context. At all events, the textured surface is an original feature rather than one arising from wear or abrasion. It may have contributed a coruscating effect were the whorl to be used in the sunshine. Similar textures have been recorded on whorls of this period from Bigby, Lincolnshire. The mass suggests this …

Lead Spindle Whorl. Cast whorl of tapered cylindrical form with one larger and one smaller flat face, and with a central moulded aperture of diameter 10mm, probably Walton Rogers form A2. The sides are partially smoothed and curved and partially rough, probably the result of miscasting rather than damage. Patinated overall. The mass suggests this would be used to ply cord. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diameter: 32.1mm, Thickness: 11.8mm, Weight: 65.18gms.

Lead Spindle Whorl. Cast whorl of near-cylindrical form with a central moulded aperture of diameter 8.5mm, Walton Rogers form B. Patinated overall. The upper surface has sunk slightly as the metal cooled, suggesting manufacture in an open mould. The cylindrical whorl was a long-lived form, probably becoming popular in the Anglo-Scandinavian period but also a dominant type during the 12th-century floruit of the cloth processing site at Eastgate, Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire where persistent Scandinavian influence was discerned in all manner of material culture (Foreman, M.

Lead Spindle Whorl. Cast whorl of a flattened plano-convex form with a moulded central aperture of diameter 10mm, probably Walton Rogers form A1, though not as reminiscent of the cattle femur head as many whorls of this shape. Another whorl of this distinctive shape was reported along with this one (NLM-86B04E) Diameter: 23mm, Thickness: 6.8mm, Weight: 18.27gms.. Patinated overall. The mass would permit the use of this example to spin a fine yarn. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000.

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.

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
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.
