Copper-alloy goad from a prick spur, of late early-medieval date (11th century). The item is sub-cylindrical and hollow, with a flat underside. The entire length of the cylindrical shaft contains iron, suggesting the item had an iron core with an copper-alloy outer surface. One end is broken, with only a small fragment of edge surviving. The rest of the iron spur is missing. The other end has moulded relief decoration in the shape of an Urnes-style animal. Corrosion has made it hard to read, but on clearer examples (notably WILT-E1CDD0) the motif is clearly a beast's head with bulging…
