Object type: STIRRUP
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy and lead object, kindly identified by Alex Bliss as a stirrup side terminal of 11th century date and probable Anglo-Scandinavian attribution. A small concavo-convex cast object of copper alloy, forming half a tube of wall thickness c.1.1mm, with a dense white filling in its concave side. Viewed in profile, the convex side is gently humped at one end, with a pair of angled ridges meeting between the hump and a rounded end. Abraded. The appearance is of a simple zoomorphic scheme, with the ridges representing eyes or brows, which might point to a Viking-Age date. Suggested d…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast biconical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 6.8mm, patinated. The form and small aperture size may suggest a Roman or Early Anglo-Saxon date, while the mass would admit a primary function spinning a fine yarn. Suggested date: Unknown, 43-700. Diameter: 18.0mm, Thickness: 10.6mm, Weight: 12.87gms

Lead possible weight. An oval cut from thin cast sheet or foil; patinated. Suggested date: Unknown, roman to Post-Medieval, 43-1800. The mass is close to one drachma of 3.41gms, one of the lowest values in the Roman system of mensuration. However, Roman material is notably scarce from the vicinity, so this must detract from the likelihood of such a use. Diameter (long axis): 20mm, Thickness: 1mm, Weight: 3.36gms

Copper alloy metalworking debris. A small rounded-section fragment of copper alloy melt, in form resembling the dropping of a small mammal. The appearance of chevrons on the surface appears to represent the cooling of the metal or the impressions of material in contact with it rather than the decorated surface of the object, as the lines appear over the bubbled surface. Suggested date: unknown, Roman to Post-Medieval, 43-1800. Length: 35mm, Weight: 10.47gms

Copper alloy ring. Cast penannular loop of probably drawn wire with rounded ends now c.2.5mm apart. With the rounded ends of the band in mind, a function as an ear ring might be entertained. Other uses entailing the suspension or attachment of other objects might equally apply. Suggested date: Unknown, Medieval to Post-Medieval, 1100-1800.

Copper alloy possible vessel fragment. A small fragment here considered to comprise a plain rim with a rounded top and with part of another element of curving form below it, from a more extensive openwork scheme. Abraded. The slight curvature of the object may suggest this to come from a vessel with an openwork upper wall. Vessels of this form could range from Coptic bowls, rarely reported objects of Mediterranean origin but known from early medieval contexts, through to the more common early post-medieval chafing dishes. Suggested date: Unknown, 410-1600. Height: 15.0mm, Length: 27.1…

Silver coin. A medieval or post-medieval hammered coin, with faint indications of an inner circle on one side, and of a discrete rim on the other. Robustly cleaned and possibly flattened, whether recently or in antiquity is uncertain. The mass might suggest this to have been a worn medieval penny or a post-medieval halfgroat.

Lead weight. Cast conical flat-based standing weight with a flat-sided triangular apical lug drilled with a hole of diameter 3mm. Patinated. A slight hollowing of the base may indicate this was made in an open mould. The mass might permit this to have represented four Roman unciae of 27.3gms or, a little less precisely, four averdepois ounces or one quarter pound. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Medieval, 43-1500. Diameter: 30.7mm, Height: 34.4mm, Weight: 108.91gms

Grey flint with cortex in two out of three cases; possible debitage. Three small thick flakes, all with indications of flakes having been struck from their dorsal surfaces. The largest has a concave ventral surface, the others have bulbar ventral surfaces. The development of a creamy patina over all struck surfaces indicates the objects have endured a period of exposure to a calcareous environment.
