Pottery. A coarse fabric, externally oxidised and internally reduced, with abundant calcareous and flint inclusions to length 3mm, probably a hand made vessel. This sherd was kindly examined by Sandra Firth of the North Lincolnshire Pottery Research Group.

Copper alloy bracelet. A cast strip of elongated lentoid form, now curled with its pointed ends appearing as if one were slightly overlapped by the other. It may retain tensile strength, though it would be grossly imprudent to test this. An incised design framed by a single line border comprises a pair of undulating lines, the uppermost [as viewed here] with scroll ends and the lower with sub-triangular figures at either end. Their central union defines a central circle like the pupil of an eye flanked by ovals. The object bears a smooth worn or polished surface and a splendid blue-gre…

Copper alloy, probable penannular brooch. Cast penannular brooch with a plain round section band and flattened and coiled terminals at right angles to the plane of the band, Fowler Type C. The upper or outer side of the band retains faint traces of ribbed ornament, though this may merely be chatter marks from finishing. The finder kindly suggests a function as an ear ring. In this case, this suggestion may be credible: first, because the band retains some tensile strength as would be required for such a function; secondly, there is no sign of a pin; and, thirdly, this tiny object would…

Gold coin. Quarter stater of the Corieltauvi, as kindly identified by Dr John Sills at the behest of Liz and Chris Rudd, whose opinion was solicited by the finder. John comments as follows: 'It is one of the earliest Corieltavian scyphates, they look a bit like Gallo-Belgic D but often have these characteristic tiny pellets in the reverse field. It's essentially the same type as ABC 1764, 11 others known to date". Suggested date: Late Iron Age, 80-60 BC, Haselgrove Period 2 Phase 4. Obverse description: A raised oval panel with six haphazardly placed indentations. ABC describes this …

Copper alloy brooch fragment. A cast strip bow with straight and near-parallel sides and a short solid folded catch plate behind its foot, set centrally on the back of the bow rather than being formed by the curling over of its end. A neatly incised linear border follows the sides and foot on the display face; the head of the brooch and its pin gear are lost. Possibly a Colchester brooch, cf. Mackreth type C1, though the short plain and centrally placed catch plate may introduce doubt as to how early a form this may be. Suggested date: Late Iron Age, 20-40. Length: 49.7mm, Width: 7.3m…

Pottery. A dark grey fabric with moderately abundant inclusions of rock or flint to length 2.5mm, though apparently lacking calcareous inclusions; body sherd from a large handmade vessel. The inner surface is smooth, possibly burnished, dark, with sparkling particles; the outer surface is lighter, and oxidised in patches. This sherd was kindly examined by Wallace Collyer and Tina Tabrah of the North Lincolnshire Pottery Research Group, who suggest a broad Iron Age date. The sherd has a fresh break on one side, which may hint at the recent disturbance by agriculture of a hitherto intact…

Pottery. A dark grey-buff fabric with abundant shell temper to length c.4mm, probably wheel finished, with a gently everted rim with rounded top. A rim sherd from the mouth of an open vessel form of estimated rim diameter c.150mm, with an internal step at the meeting of vessel wall and rim. The combination of a shell-tempered fabric and wheel finishing which the regular appearance of the sherd suggests would place it in a later Iron Age tradition. The temper may have improved the chance of the pot surviving thermal shock from heating and cooling. Suggested date: Late Iron Age, 100 BC-A…
