Copper alloy stirrup mount, Williams Class A Type 11. Cast sub-triangular plate with an angled flange along its broad base bearing two drilled holes of diameter 3.2mm and 2.8mm. A further drilled hole, of diameter 3.7mm, passes through the trilobate apex of the object. The plate itself bears the bordered image of a beast walking right with its head thrown back and jaws agape, and with a forepaw raised. The jaws 'bite' a rhomboid protrusion pointing downwards from the apex; the latter is flanked by paired scrolls. The beast has triangular ears and a pointed muzzle, which might suggest a…

Copper alloy and iron brooch fragment.

Lead spindle whorl. Cast sub-cylindrical whorl with a moulded tapered aperture of diameter 8.5-11.5mm, Walton Rogers form B; patinated. Shrinkage around the hole may suggest this was cast in an open mould. The size of the spindle hole may suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian date, with which the form is compatible.

Copper alloy pin head. Cast spherical pin head with a collared shank and with five further prominent and equidistantly distributed knops projecting. The body of the pin head is smooth and bears a black coating possibly arising from treatment with oil in antiquity. The form is noted at Middle Saxon Flixborough (Rogers 2009, page 72, fig. 1.29 no. 679) where it is represented by a gilded silver and glass example, not ascribed to a particular class at that site.

Copper alloy bridle fitting. Cast plano-convex section bar with a central expansion bordered by low horizontal ridges and a pair of short side spurs, and with a flattened square panel. The object is broken at either end, probably at the springing of paired loops. The finder kindly suggests an identification as a cheek piece. Bent, by force exerted at the ends. This would probably have been used in an Anglo-Scandinavian context in Lindsey. Suggested date: Late Medieval, 1000-1100. Length: 51.2mm, Width: 20.5mm, Thickness: 6.1mm, Weight: 15.19gms

Copper alloy strap end. Cast zoomorphic strap end of elongated oval form with a split inner end bearing paired drilled holes for stitched attachment and a zoomorphic terminal, Thomas Class A Type 1. A curvilinear pattern, now indistinct, occupies the central part of the plate, separated from the inner 34end by a probably pelta-shaped field.

Copper alloy strap end. A weighty cast strap end with a split inner end, an expanded mid--part and tapered towards a massy solid terminal, Thomas Class F. A longitudinal panel appears on both sides, the better preserved retaining a possibly reticulated interlaced pattern within a broad plain border. The terminal features a projecting border and a rounded end, with a small triangular projection on one broad face only. The inner end bears six dots of inlay on either side, again suggesting an originally bilateral scheme of decoration. This type of strap end is linked to the Viking distrib…

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy probable nail cleaner. A narrow straight-sided strip with a point at either end, one longer and one shorter. The longer point may imitate the form of an angle-backed knife, an Anglo-Saxon and later form, while the shorter point is a downward angled triangle, p[erhaps a perfunctory tang for the 'knife'. The resemblance to a miniature tool or weapon may not be fortuitous, and is characteristic of both real and symbolic grooming tools accompanying early Anglo-Saxon cremation burials. The object is thickest in the middle, and thinned, perhaps by use, towards its ends. Suggeste…

Copper alloy possible mount fragment. A small fragment from a cast object with curvilinear interlaced elements, possibly openwork, and with an off-centre fixing hole of diameter 2.5mm - if this is not merely a further part of a decorative design. The finder kindly suggests a Saxon date, and the reddish tint of the metal is indeed characteristic of Anglo-Scandinavian metalwork from the region. Its partial survival may tend to increase a vaguely zoomorphic appearance: to this reporter, the object appears like a grazing animal inverted [not a typical choice for the Anglo-Scandinavian craf…
