A late Saxon copper alloy stirrup strap mount of Williams' Class A, Type 10. The mount is pear-shaped or teardrop-shaped and has an integral loop at the top. The front of the mount is worn, but traces of an interlaced animal (possibly seen from above) are visible. The head is probably set so that the snout extends towards the apex, but much of the detail is unclear. The base of the mount extends slightly at both edges; the area between the edges undulates according to two moulded strands, perhaps representing foliage or parts of the animals body. The rearward ledge on the reverse is mo…

An Early Anglo-Saxon iron spear, dating circa 550-650. The spear has a flat tapering blade with an incomplete conical shaft. The shaft is not fully rounded. The blade is of maximum width close to the socket. The spear measures 298mm in length. The blade measures 242mm in length and 38mm in width at the widest point. The socket measures 12mm in diameter at the break. An attempt was made to classify and date this weapon using the system defined in Bayliss and Hines (2013, 163-170) which uses ratios between spearhead's various elements. These allowed the spearhead the spearhead to be te…

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An iron clapper from a bell. The shank is hexagonal in section and terminates with a swollen terminal also of hexagonal section. The suspension loop at the top is formed by a simple loop with the terminal partially coiled back around the shank. The clapper measures 140mm in length. The width of the shank is circa 11mm.

A broken Early Medieval silver cut halfpenny of Aethelstan (924-939), 'Buildings Type', moneyer ETRAM of York. Gareth William's report on the 'York area' hoard (YORYM-BC3AB2) includes the following information on this type of coin: "Athelstan's Building type is normally comparatively rare, and was apparently quite short-lived. It was probably minted in a period of a few months following Athelstan's conquest of Northumbria and the Midlands in 927, and before the introduction of his Circumscription Cross and Bust Crowned issued using the title King of All Britain from late 928 onwards."

An incomplete early Anglo-Saxon iron shield boss. The boss has a relatively low, conical body. The finial of the apex is missing, but the rod of circular section on which it was held survives in part. The surviving height measures 8mm and the diameter measures 8mm (including corrosion). The cone is conical and has slightly convex sides in profile. The cone has an overhanging carination leading to a rather shallowly concave wall below. The flange is mostly damaged, but may have measured circa 21mm in width. A circular outline on one of the surviving portions of the flange suggest that i…

An incomplete early Anglo-Saxon iron shield boss. The finial of the apex is missing, but part of the rod of circular section on which it was held survives.This measures circa 17mm in height, and circa 8mm in diameter (including corrosion). The cone is conical and has straight sides in profile. Only a small section of the perimeter of the cone survives, measuring 61mm from apex to perimeter; none of the wall or flange survive, which makes classification difficult. The overall profile does, however, suggest that is a relatively low boss, probably of Hines and Bayliss's Group SB1-a, which…
