Record ID: NLM-68CE90
Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy possible mount fragment, as kindly suggested by the finder. A cast plate with a rhomboid centre and two opposed arms with rounded ends; a further two arms are lost and a cruciform shape might be inferred. The end of each remaining arm bears a stamped impression resembling a ring and dot of diameter 4.4mm, with a larger but similar feature of diameter 6mm on the central rhomboid. Though a pit appears at the end of one arm in the ring and dot, it is not carried through the plate and so cannot be a fixing point. Suggested date: Unknown, Early Medieval to Medieval, 410-1500. …

Lead possible weight. Cast sub-rectangular weight with one rounded and thicker end, and with a sunken panel apparently formed by stamping with a die or coin of 26mm diameter which appears to have had a plain perimeter of width 3.5mm - in the manner of the 'cartwheel' coinage of 1797, though that issue did not include coins of this size. Both ends of the object also bear multiple crescentic and triangular stamp or bite marks, perhaps more likely the latter, which are carried over onto the underside at the straight end of the object. Lightly patinated. The mass might suggest this to repr…

Copper alloy possible ingot. A small solid cast wedge-shaped object with an indented pit at one end. Abraded. Though surface wear might have removed broken surfaces, the object appears complete. An alternative identification, perhaps as a distressed miniature tool or weapon, might be considered. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Medieval, 43-1500.

Copper alloy probable metalworking debris. Probably a tiny droplet of copper alloy melt which has congealed on a flat surface. The slight possibility remains this could be an extremely small late Roman coin or 'minim', though this reporter has not encountered examples this small. Suggested date: Unknown, 43-1800. Diameter: 5.5mm, Thickness: 1mm, Weight: 0.14gms

Lead weight. Cast conical weight with a flattened apex and a depression in its base suggesting it was cast in an open mould. Abraded. The mass does not immediately suggest correspondence with any particular system of weights and measures. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Post-Medieval, 43-1700.

Lead metalworking debris. Eight small fragments: six are scraps of congealed lead melt, one is a partly melted scrap with traces of an H-section form which may point at its having been a scrap of window came, and a small [length 20mm] split offcut.

Copper alloy unidentified object. An encrusted fragment of copper alloy with a shallow trough along one side and an irregular but essentially convex surface on the other. This might be a fragment from a cylindrical object, though if so, it has been dismantled with explosive force - a characteristic of exploded munition fragments or machine parts of the modern period, but rare before that time. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Modern, 43-1950. Length: 32.6mm, Width: 11.2mm, Thickness: 4.8mm, Weight: 8.18gms

Lead metalworking debris. A small elongated and thickened fragment of cast lead of length 38.3mm; it is uncertain whether an irregular surface arises from the congealing of dribbled molten metal, or gnawing by vermin - leaving small triangular scars, or both. Another fragment of solidified lead melt [Weight: 4.60gms] which has set on a flat surface was also reported. Patinated.

Copper alloy possible metalworking waste. A small scrap of copper alloy melt with a rounded edge, thickest in the middle. It is uncertain whether this is merely solidified melt, or a partly melted object. If the latter, this still might indicate purposeful activity, as the material would not normally reach its melting point accidentally. Suggested date: Unknown, Medieval to Post-Medieval, 1200-1800.

Lead unidentified object fragment. One end of a cast rectangular box with a hole of diameter 4.3mm drilled through its base; it appears that a diminutive gutter runs towards this hole, so its provision may have been an original feature of the object. Fine casually executed cuts appear across the upstanding edges of the box, and there is a small dimple in its upper surface at its surviving end. The object is distorted towards the cut or broken end, probably by the episode which truncated it. Patinated. The casual finishing might suggest this to be a toy or miniature object, though if a…

Grey-green stone possible muller. A rounded possibly water-rolled pebble with a dull and speckled surface appearance, possibly with worn and in one case slightly concave faces, well-adapted to hold in the hand. This object was recovered as distinctively different from the local stones, and as such is probably a manuport [i.e. brought to the site by human agency]. Such stones might be retrieved as glacial erratics, and lent themselves to uses as rubbers, grinders and burnishers. They are noted particularly from contexts between the Iron Age and the Early Medieval period, though as a fie…

Fire-cracked flint. A small fragment of patinated flint with the characteristically jagged and hackled surface and deep cracking associated ith intense heat - though it is noted that such effects were wont to occur in recent times, when the burning of stubble was a common agricultural practice. However, this object is accompanied by prehistoric flints, whose date range is advanced for it here, with a later extension offered in precautionary vein.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead possible weight. Cast plano-convex weight with a central moulded aperture of diameter 4.7mm. Shrinkage on the flat surface may suggest this was cast in an open mould. Patinated. The hole might have been intended for stringing as a line weight, though there is no marking to suggest this - the finder kindly notes this was found near other net sinkers close to the old course of the River Don. For a game piece, a class of early medieval object also of this form, it might accommodate a wooden peg for use with a holed game board such as Hnafetafl. The mass might suggest this to represe…

Lead net sinker. A weight made by rolling a rectangular billet of cast lead sheet of thickness 1.4mm, which would be wrapped around the selvedge of a net, in this case with an overlapping seam; patinated, and lightly squashed. The weight may in this case have been deposited or lost while attached to the net, which might be used for fishing or wildfowling. Examples from the riverside settlement at Flixborough suggest a local Middle Saxon use for weights of this form on the River Trent, though in London similar weights came from a late medieval boat in the Thames at Blackfriars bridge. …

Lead net sinker. A weight made by the rolling of a rectangular billet of cast lead sheet of thickness 2mm, which would be wrapped around the selvedge of a net; patinated, pierced and lightly squashed. In this case, the weight appears to have been unclenched for its removal from the net. A pierced hole might suggest light gnawing by a dog, so an eager interpreter might posit a fisherman - or perhaps a wildfowler - accompanied by his hound. Examples from the riverside settlement at Flixborough suggest a local Middle Saxon use for weights of this form on the River Trent, though in London …
