Object type: TWEEZERS
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy and iron tweezers fragment. One arm of a pair of tweezers, with a rounded spatulate end, tapering gently towards the position of an iron rivet of diameter 1.6mm and length 3mm, lightly burred at its end. Another similar arm was presumably attached thereby. Above the rivet there is a horizontal groove and an oval terminal which is turned at its end, possibly to assist the hinged play of the other arm if its end fitted here. The terminal bears indistinct surface relief - though this is possibly merely the effect of decay - which emphasises its resemblance to a beast head te…

Object type: BRIDLE FITTING
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy bridle fitting or cheek piece. Cast rhomboid loop with knops at three of its angles and a shank, now broken, at the fourth. The slight hollowing on parts of the back of the object may suggest it was made in an open mould. The red tint of metal is especially characteristic of Anglo-Scandinavian material. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Length: 28.8mm, Width: 26.3mm, Thickness: 3.9mm, Weight: 5.43gms.

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead Weight. Cast discoid weight with lightly bevelled sides and a dimple in one face, the uppermost as cast; patinated overall. The mass indicates this is exactly equivalent to three units of 4.43gms, as used in the Viking Dublin system for the weighing of silver bullion. Weights observing this and contemporary systems of measurement are more usually representative of even multiples - 2, 4, 6 and so on - but correspondence is exact in this case. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 865-925. Diameter: 18.2mm, Thickness: 6.5mm, Weight: 13.29gms.

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy buckle. Cast single looped or D shaped buckle with beast head terminals at either end of a narrowed strap bar. The frame is ridged or corrugated with a central slot on its outer edge serving as a pin rest, and is bevelled behind. The beast head ornament and the vermiform ridging both suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian affinity. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 900-1050. Length: 22.4mm, Height: 22.1mm, Thickness: 3.8mm, Weight: 4.10gms.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy strap end. Cast strap end of elongated oval form with its broader end split and the other bearing a knop or terminal derived from a beast head, Thomas Class A Type 2. The field afforded by the display face bears a dense complex of incised floral palmate motifs, usually trilobate, with several thin coils of black material, possibly niello, as relicts of a formerly more extensive scheme of inlaid decoration, and with a curl or spiral motif at the broad end. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 800-850. Length: 48.5mm, Width: 13.9mm, Thickness (plate): 1.4mm, Weight: 3.54gms.

Copper alloy pin. Cast pin with a faceted head with rhomboid sides each bearing either a single drilled dot or ring and dot of diameter 1.3mm on the smaller facets and with up to four dots on the larger; the latter possibly crowded ring and dot of overall diameter 3mm. Only the upper facet is unadorned. There is a plain collar below the head and a pointed unhipped gently tapering shank ending in a point; the shank is now bent. The form and decoration resemble Flixborough type 231. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 800-850. Length (as found): 37.5mm, Head Width: 7.5mm, Head Thickness:…

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 locati…

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.

Object type: INGOT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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 E…

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 Weight. Cast conical flat-based standing weight with a central moulded longitudinal tapered aperture of length c.3.5mmand with slightly fluted sides. Patinated overall. The mass may suggest this to represent ten Viking Age Scandinavian units of 4.07gms, as used for bullion transactions. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000.

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 tapered cylindrical form with a broad flat top face and a narrower lower face, and with a central moulded aperture of diameter 10mm, Walton Rogers form A2.

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.
