Silver coin. Sceat of Series E, issue of 700-765, a Frisian issue. Of a group of 7 coins presented together, this is exceptionally bright and the obverse detail blurred.

Silver coin. Sceat, probably of Series L, a London derived issue of 730-765, cf. Abramson (page 78) L700 or K/N, issue of 720-740 - a broad range of 720-765 is suggested in advance of better qualified comment.. Obverse description: Beast with long pellet-ended jaws and large eye, curved neck, claw left and spiral right, quills behind beast neck, bar across curve of beast neck, straight line limits quills. This seems to combine a well-drawn beast motif with characteristics of a diademed bust. Reverse description: Figure with head of three rounded blobs and vertically striped tabard fa…

Copper alloy stirrup mount. Cast flat sub-trapezoid plate with a basal flange at right angles to it [flange A], Williams Class A, with engrailed sides and with three pairs of knops projecting. Unlike the majority of classified stirrup mounts, this lacks any decoration of the plate, though its incised addition would have translated this object to Williams' Type 1. Three drilled fixing holes of diameter 4m are set at the apex and at the base; one of the latter retains a copper alloy rivet of diameter 2.8mm and length 5.6mm. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 1000-1100. Height: 44.7mm, Widt…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast cylindrical whorl with flat sides and a central moulded aperture of diameter 10.5mm, Walton Rogers form B. Shrinkage lines in the upper surface suggest the object was cast in an open mould. Patinated. The form and the large spindle hole are compatible with an AAnglo-Scandinavian date.

Copper alloy brooch fragment. Cast half-round knob from the head of an Anglo-Saxon cruciform brooch, with a pit at the apex of its curve, and a deep moulded collar separating the rounded part from a grooved base. Immediately below the groove is a round hole of diameter 3mm which continues as a trough in the flat back of the knob. These features are associated with the attachment of the knob to the head of a brooch, probably by iron pins or wires, now lost to corrosion. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 450-600. Length: 15.6mm, Width: 11.5mm, Thickness: 7.8mm, Weight: 5.26gms

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter c.12mm, Walton Rogers form A1; patinated. The whorl has been subjected to a distorting impact. The spindle hole, though distorted, is probably of a size [i.e. over 9mm] to indicate an Anglo-Scandinavian date. Notches at either end of the now-oval hole might be tying notches, and might signal the conversion of whorl to line weight. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-950. Diameter (long axis as found): 32.1mm, Thickness: 8.5mm, Weight: 44.46gms

Lead and white metal weight. A small flat-based discoid or cylindrical weight with an embedded object occupying a slightly [0.8mm] sunken hollow on one side. The embedded object is a grey, flat, plain metallic disc with a neatly incised line across its middle; a shallow depression appears on the opposite flat surface. One edge of the weight is either distorted by impact or lightly melted. If of Anglo-Scandinavian date, the mass might suggest this to have represented two [underweight] Viking Age units of 4.07gms, though the correspondence with this putative standard is less precise than…

Copper alloy brooch. Cast small long brooch with a cross-potent head with rounded ends to its three arms, defined by small U-shaped cut-outs near the springing of each arm, and each end being separated from the rest of the head plate by stamped features which appear as untidy doubled or superimposed chevrons within separate border lines. The effect achieved by this two-dimensional elaboration recalls the rounded knobs of some cruciform brooches. The bow continues with slightly divergent straight sides to a straight-ended foot. At least five ridges are scored across the upper part of t…

Lead spindle whorl.

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a central moulded tapered aperture of diameter 10-9.5mm, Walton Rogers form A1. A light nick next to the hole on the convex side may be a tying notch, possibly signalling conversion of whorl to line weight. The ample size of spindle hole could point to an Anglo-Scandinavian date and the mass may hint at a primary function plying cord, though the metal retains a grey tint except in its hole, perhaps arising from some unusual feature of its deposition - perhaps a period of water-rolling and submersion. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-9…

Copper alloy mount. Cast U-profile concavo-convex anthropomorphic mount, perhaps from the edge of an object such as a shield board or scabbard. The display face bears the image of a face or mask with prominently arched brows, hollows to either side of a central nasal ridge as eyes, and with a luxuriant horizontal moustache; the forehead and chin, the latter perhaps bearded, are formed by the upper and lower edges of the object. White material adhering to the hollow back is presumably a fixative. The early medieval use of human portraits was limited, and is thought to have often alluded…

Lead probable spindle whorl. Cast whorl with an off-centre moulded tapered aperture of diameter 13.7-15mm, and with two flat faces of uneven sizes, Walton Rogers form A2. Shrinkage lines on the upper broader surface suggest the object was cast in an open mould. Patinated. A lightly facetted appearance, like the off-centre position of the hole and the uneven profile, may evidence a failed or inept casting, though there is no indication the whorl was put to another use. The ample spindle hole and the form point to an Anglo-Scandinavian date, while the mass points to a primary intended fu…
