Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead spindle whorl. Cast conical whorl with a larger and a smaller flat face and a central moulded aperture of diameter 7.7mm, Walton Rogers form A2. Patinated. The spindle size would admit an Anglo-Saxon date, while the mass may suggest this was used to sp-in a yarn. Opposed cuts next to the hole on the smaller flat face might represent a tying notch, and perhaps a change in function for the object. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-850 Diameter: 19.3mm, Thickness: 15.6mm, Weight: 28.08gms

A gold early medieval finger ring of the Viking period (c. 1000-1100). The ring is made of a curved rod with a rectangular cross-section and bevelled edges.

Lead possible weight. Cast plano-convex object with a small dimple on its convex side. Patinated. The mass may suggest this to have represented one half of an ore/ora or three Viking Age units of 4.07gms. A conical ribbed playing piece or weight of similar mass (NLM-C98990) was reported as from the same general location, and indeed this object might qualify as one of the plainer pieces used in the game of Hnafetafl.

Lead possible playing piece. Cast conical to pentagonal-section flat-based object with five moulded ribs converging at its apex. The ribs may have distinguished this from plainer pieces used in the board game Hnafetafl, perhaps as a 'king'. Its mass also equates to one half ore/ora, or three Viking -Age units as used for transactions in silver bullion, most closely matching that system employed in Scandinavia based on a module of 4.07gms. The object could have served as both weight and game piece, especially if such games were to be played for silver stakes. A slightly heavier version …
