Lead and iron weight. A cast conical or domed weight, cast in an open mould, with an embedded iron stub projecting from the upper surface as made. Patinated. The mass might point to an association with the Viking Age systems employed for transactions in silver bullion c.850-950, representing one ora/ore or six sub-units of the prevailing contemporary Norse and Danish systems of measurement; it presently corresponds most closely to the latter. The loss of an uncertain weight of iron must qualify this attribution, and the conventional identification applied to weights with an iron loop e…

Object type: GAMING PIECE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead possible game piece. A small oval fragment with two moulded cabled ribs in a cruciform pattern, with a deeply impressed line parallel to one of the ribs and cutting the other as it passes over. The object is patinated on this side, but the plain back is grey and smooth. The ephemeral nature of the object and its simple surface marking might be apt to use as a game piece, a class of object often casually improvised from scrap. Suggested date: Unknown, Medieval to Post-Medieval, 1300-1800. Length: 18.5mm, Width: 14.7mm, Thickness: 2.6mm, Weight: 3.33gms

Object type: KEY (LOCKING)
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy probable key fragment. An object comprising two elements: a narrower solid round-section bar, angled sharply with a knop at its external angle, here taken to be the bow; and a broader rounded element whose narrower end is hollowed to a depth of c.5mm, the stem. The object is probably broken at both its ends. The massy casting might hint at a Roman date, but if what remains is the stub of a rhomboid bow and a hollow stem a medieval date could be as apt. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Medieval, 43-1500. Length: 40.8mm, Height: 30mm, Thickness: 9.6mm, Weight: 12.79gms.

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead spindle whorl. Cast, or rather miscast, spindle whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 11.5mm, possibly intended to be of plano-convex form; patinated. The plano-convex form might point to an early medieval whorl, or perhaps a failed attempt to copy one half of a biconvex early post-medieval whorl. |At all events, shrinkage lines around the hole show the whorl was cast in an open mould, which would be the simplest technique of casting at any date. Suggested date: Unknown, Early Medieval to Post-Medieval, 850-1600 Diameter: 31.6mm, Thickness: 10.6mm, Weight: 29.46gms

Lead possible spindle whorl. A small cast whorl of plano-convex profile with a central moulded aperture of diameter 7mm, possibly miscast, subsequently sheared on one side, and patinated. This object is equally likely to have been used or reused as a line weight, and two light tying notches appear on its flat upper surface. If a whorl, this might fall into Walton Rogers form A [indeterminate], with a small spindle hole permitting an Anglo-Saxon date and of a mass apt to spinning a fine yarn.

Lead weight. Cast discoid weight with rounded edges which may suggest the flattening by hammering of a small lump of lead; patinated and lightly abraded. The mass does not now point to correspondence with any particular scheme of measurement, though round weights of a slightly greater mass come from later medieval contexts in London. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Post-Medieval, 43-1700. Diameter: 22.3mm, Thickness: 4.5mm, Weight: 19.71gms

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. A fragment from a cast object with a facetted point at its thicker end, further irregular facets along its length which confer an undulating appearance, and broken across a constriction at the other end. The pointed end has a sharply defined cut which might be taken as a smiling mouth. A groove, wider near the cut end, passes along the same side of the object, and its line is continued by the constriction across which it has broken. A vaguely zoomorphic appearance may arise from the 'mouth', but this is not a primary feature of the casting. S…

Lead vessel repair or pot mend. Cast plug to mend a hole in a vessel wall of thickness c.5.5mm, of trapezoid form externally, where a roughly shield-shaped depression appears in the lead. The inner side shows traces of the congealing of lead as it was dribbled into the pot to be mended. Patinated, and abraded. A tiny fleck of red oxidised fabric appears on the mend; a pot mend with trapped fabric of similar tint found nearby is suggested to be Roman. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Medieval, 43-1500.

Copper alloy metalworking debris. A large fragment of solidified melt which has set on a smooth flat surface. The upper surface of the metal displays low rounded excrescences, and appears smoothed by adventitious wear. This was reported along with other fragments whose upper surfaces exhibited localised crystalline structures and whose lower surfaces were sanded. The different surfaces could point to two discrete episodes of non-ferrous metalworking in the same vicinity. The amount of metal in this fragment suggests the waste from a major episode of casting, and this reporter feels it…

Copper alloy metalworking debris. A fragment of solifdified casting spillage which has set on a flat and probably sanded surface. A part of the material has a pale purple grey tint, the rest is green. Part of an extensive spread of similar objects which point to a discrete episode of metalworking in the vicinity; the clear evidence for sanded surfaces here may suggest a deliberately formed casting bed was in use.

Lead weight. Cast weight approaching a rhomboid form, of plano-convex section, with a central moulded hole of diameter 4.6mm. The convex surface is rough or textured. Patinated. The mass does not closely correspond to units observing any particular system, while the form is also unusual. There are no marks to indicate the intended function of the hole, which is a little small to admit a spindle. Suggested date: unknown, Roman to Medieval, 43-1500.

Stone possible whetstone. A small dense compact dark grey pebble of triangular section with rounded ends and sharply defined arises between its flat faces, probably initially formed by wind erosion in a dusty or icy environment. One side, however, is lightly hollowed, probably by wear arising from use as a sharpening stone, and handling may have contributed to the smooth finish of other surfaces. The use of improvised whetstones, often recovered from Glacial Drift, was characteristic of a long period from Prehistory, through the Roman period, and up to the Viking Age introduction of s…
