Object type: RING
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete copper-alloy ring of uncertain date and function. The object is circular with a hexagonal section. It is undecorated. The metal has a dark green patina and is worn. The object is 27.8mm in diameter, 3.9mm wide, 2.9mm thick and weighs 5.8g. A similar example has been recorded as LANCUM-0B78D2 and is described as a late Bronze to Early Iron Age "horse trapping" though no supporting evidence is cited. LANCUM-06AA41 also states that 'similar rings have been discovered in a number of Bronze Age hoards and have been suggested as horse harness fittings, as being part of the handl…

Two (2) complete lead-alloy weights or gaming pieces of uncertain date. Both are conical with flat bases, on which they stand, with tapering sides to rounded tops. They are undecorated. Dimensions: 11.6mm tall, 10.7mm diameter; weight: 6.3g. 8.8mm tall, 8.6mm diameter; weight: 3.7g. Weights of a similar form have been identified from Early-Medieval contexts at Cottam, East Riding of Yorkshire. Due to the lack of secure context for the current example dating it and other examples of this general type is problematic, and their use is invariably uncertain. This function is also not cer…

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An almost complete ceramic phallic pendant of uncertain date. The pendant comprises an ovate shaft which swells towards a bulbous head. A prominent ridge is present at the junction between the shaft and the head which appears to have been handmade. The head has a deep triangular groove to the upper end of the tip representing the urethra. The opposite end of the shaft tapers to a narrower rounded terminal with narrow perforation to one side. The other side of the loop is broken and a corresponding perforation cannot be determined. Two fairly small rounded knops project to either side …

A complete lead weight of uncertain date. The object is cylindrical and stands upright, though slightly angled. The metal has a mid-yellow/white patina and is worn. The object is 9.3mm tall, 9.9mm in diameter and weighs 6.4g. Weights of a similar form have been identified from Early-Medieval contexts at Cottam, East Riding of Yorkshire. Due to the lack of secure context for the current example dating it and other examples of this general type is problematic, and their use is invariably uncertain. This function is also not certain and the object may have served another purpose.
