Object type: SCABBARD
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy possible scabbard chape fragment. A cast sub-triangular plate with the relict of one of a probable pair of spurs at its wider end, which is bevelled, and possibly broken along its other edges. Plain borders, slightly raised, appear along one side and across the wider end of the object, and these enclose a curvilinear element of moulded decoration. From its form, this might alternatively be part of a stirrup mount; a reddish tint is often characteristic of Anglo-Scandinavian metalwork. Extremely abraded, as are many finds reported from the vicinity. Suggested date: Early Me…

Lead weight. Cast discoid weight, possibly marked on one flat surface by the loss of a thin embedded object. Patinated. The mass, as it now stands, could permit this to have served to represent a slightly overweight six units as used in Viking Age Denmark [of 4.07gms], or six slightly underweight units as used in Viking Age Dublin and its dependencies, including Viking York [of 4.43gms], both equating to one ora/ore, roughly equivalent to an ounce. The correspondence with these systems is less exact than is normally required by this reporter to advance this interpretation, though this …

County: North East Lincolnshire

Lead possible spindle whorl. Cast cylindrical flat-sided whorl with a central moulded and tapered aperture of diameter 12.2-11.3mm, Walton Rogers form B. Patinated. There may be a tying groove on one side, which might signal the conversion of whorl to weight. The mass points to a primary function plying cord, while the aperture size may suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian date. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 950-1050 Diameter: 37.3mm, Thickness: 10.7mm, Weight: 89.53gms

County: North Lincolnshire

Copper alloy stirrup mount fragment. A cast concavo-convex object, approaching conical form, of which the hollow side is thought to engage with a stirrup. On one side, the object bears a moulded chevron oriented towards a horizontal rib with two low rounded horns projecting from its ends, the overall effect being vaguely anthropomorphic. The metal has a reddish cast often associated with Anglo-Scandinavian metalwork. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 1000-1100. Length: 15.6mm, Width: 13.0mm, Thickness: 12.0mm, Weight: 6.39gms

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with straight sides, and probably one larger and one smaller flat face, a moulded central aperture of diameter 9.5mm, probably Walton Rogers form A2.

Copper alloy strap end. Cast zoomorphic strap end with a beast head terminal and a split inner end [one leaf of which is lost, probably recently] with paired stitching holes, Thomas Class A Type 1. A central bordered panel bears an interlaced design depicting a ?hound with long hare-like ears with its forepaw resting in front of the erect head. The body is spotted with stamped pits. The further extent of the body turns behind the head with a lower limb uppermost to the left of the panel [i.e. towards the terminal]. The creature is at all events mammalian rather than reptilian.

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. Cast D-section curving bar with moulded segmented relief on its display side and a plain rounded end. If the curve were continued to enable the object's ends to meet, it might suggest an internal diameter of c.100mm. The object is broken across two immediately juxtaposed drilled holes, which pass from front to back [diameter 2.8mm] and side to side [diameter 2.3mm]. The segments, of which there are six on the part of the object which remains, are separated by narrow billeted cordons. The vermiform appearance of the object recalls an equal-arme…

Copper alloy possible mount fragment. Cast fragment from the end of an object with a zoomorphic dragonesque terminal. The head is an indented rectangle with two shallow notches above and below and one at the muzzle. A rounded ear projects at the back of the head, which is at the end of a probably segmented curving neck. Abraded. A reddish tint may hint at an Anglo-Scandinavian date.

Lead weight. Cast rectangular weight; patinated. The mass may show this to represent four units of 4.07gms, as used in Viking Age Denmark for silver bullion transactions. Similarly simple forms of weight respecting this system have been identified as of early medieval date at Cottam, East Riding of Yorkshire. Numerous examples are found elsewhere in Danelaw contexts, though their recognition is erratic. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-950.

Lead weight. Cast tapered flat-sided weight. Sand imprints on one larger flat side and the adjoining narrower sides indicate this was cast in a sand bed, which marks an episode of 'professional' casting. Patinated. The mass suggests this may have represented three units of 4.07gms, as used in Viking-Age Scandinavia for transactions in silver bullion. Simple forms of weights respecting this and allied systems of measurement were probably common, though their recognition is less common. Weights of this type representing uneven numbers of units are rarer than those representing even numbe…
