Record ID: NLM-6E276A
Object type: INGOT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead possible ingot. A lump of cast lead in the form of a thick [6mm] sharply folded sheet or tube at one end, and rounded and flat at the other, with a sharp bend between the ends. Patinated. Perhaps an ingot, though beaten or bent and cut after casting to achieve its present form. Such an unusually massy fragment of lead may suggest its use for a significant, possibly structural, project, rather than for the casual casting of smaller items. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Post-Medieval, 43-1800 Length: 46.3mm, Width: 54.5mm, Thickness (at rounded end): 30.5mm, Weight: c.330gms

Lead metalworking debris. Five small scraps of solidified lead melt. The largest irregular fragment has a flat back suggesting it cooled on a flat surface. Another indicates the dribbling of a fine stream of metal during a minor episode of casting. Patinated. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Post-Medieval, 43-1800 Combined weight: 54.28gms

Lead metalworking debris. Two small fragments of solidified lead melt: one is typically irregular; the other, of length 20mm, has a shark-tooth form, probably fortuitously so. Patinated. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Post-Medieval, 43-1800 Combined Weight: 22.81gms

Copper alloy possible tweezers fragment. A straight sided strip which is slightly expanded at one end and broken at the other, with a probably originally central fold. Black material adheres in spots at the spatulate end. The form is otherwise non-diagnostic of date.

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead possible spindle whorl. Cast whorl of plano-convex section with an off-centre moulded aperture of diameter 6.8mm. Shrinkage lines around the hole suggest the object was cast in an open mould or, given the slightly rough feel of the curved surface, perhaps a hollow in the sand of a casting bed. Patinated. The hole is partly burred over on the convex side. The mass suggests this performed a function distinct from that of most spindle whorls, perhaps as a flywheel, or for the plying of thicker cord. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Post-Medieval, 43-1800 Diameter: 36.3mm, Thickness…

Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy unidentified object. A cast knob of either spherical or hemispherical form - the uncertainty arising from surface damage, separated from a short [6.5mm] tapered shank by a moulding which remains of strongly defined double collared form on its outer side. The shank has a semi-circular section with a ridge along its flat or inner side, a provision which appears intended to secure the object when it was inserted into another. The surface is bubbled, probably by intense heat. These features could be consistent with this being a detached half-round knob from the head of an Earl…

Copper alloy nail cleaner. A thin oval sheet metal plate with a tapered projection which is neatly nicked to V-shape at its end. The object bears an appealing pale green patina. The form is non-diagnostic: a Roman date might be preferred but such a simple construction cannot rule out a later date, and the condition is very good - the form also resembles that of fish-shaped bone gaming pieces of post-medieval date. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Early Post-Medieval, 43-1600 Length: 42.2mm, Width: 11.7mm, Thickness: 0.7mm, Weight: 1.41gms

Lead possible weight fragment. Cast flat-sided rectangle of lead, lipped from the mould along two adjacent edges and sheared at one end. Patinated. The present mass could point to an original value in excess of one averdepois ounce for the post-medieval period, though the loss of an uncertain extent vitiates further speculation; the cutting might represent deliberate cancellation rather than fortuitous damage. Alternatively perhaps a small ingot. Suggested date: Unknown, Later Medieval to Post-Medieval, 1350-1800 Length: 30.0mm, Width: 28.2mm, Thickness: 6.0mm, Weight: 39.50gms

Iron nails. Twenty-one fragments of wrought iron nails and nail shanks. Most exhibit a square section which may arise from the flaking of corrosion as much as from their original form. The heads, where they remain, are often formed by a flattening of the broader end of the shank, though one achieves a T-shape, one retains part of a flat rounded head, two have rounded knob ends, and one has a squared end like a bolt. The poor condition will have arisen from repeated disturbance in the plough-soil, though some may also have been subjected to the burning of wood into which they had been d…

Lead possible ingot. Cast plano-convex discoid miniature ingot, probably cast in an open mould or hollow. The convex side may bear texturing from the sand of the casting bed. Patinated. The plano-convex form was also used from game pieces and counters at various dates, particularly the Roman and Anglo-Saxon periods when the pieces were usually neater and a little smaller than this; pieces for medieval board games were often improvised and ephemeral objects like the boards themselves.

Fine-grained grey sedimentary stone, possible rubber or polisher. A chipped and elongated water-rolled cobble, possibly smoothed on one flat face, chipped, probably more recently. Diagonal lines appearing on the flattened face are the bedding planes of the rock, perhaps here revealed by the use of the stone. This may be an improvised hone or smoother, both categories of object with a broad date range probably extending from the Bronze Age to the Early Medieval period. This was probably noticed and retrieved as a non-local stone, so at all events may have been imported to its find spo…

Lead ingot. Cast plano-convex ingot, made by pouring lead into a bowl-shaped hollow, probably in a sand bed or possibly in the base of a round-bottomed vessel; patinated. An ingot of this form was recorded from a stratified context dated to the 10th century at Beverley Lurk Lane, East Riding of Yorkshire (Foreman, in Armstrong et. al. 1991, page 162, fig. 119 no. 820), though the technique may have been often used when recycling scrap from a larger project.
