Record ID: LANCUM-003FFE
Object type: WHISTLE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A dark grey hawking whistle most likely made from tin alloy. Cylindrical in shape with a tapering end and broken extension piece, possibly for an attachment loop. A thin raised ring at the top seperates the body of the whistle from the mouth-piece. Immediately below this upper ring is the semi-circular aperture which allows the sound to escape. The object is mostly intact although here is damage to the end of the mouthpiece, and some distortion of shape from erosion processes. Similar but not exact references found on the database in entries: BH-A0DDB1; IOW-0DC634; IOW-46E963; IOW-…

A lead weight spindle whorl (or possibly net sinker or trap weight) of conical shape. The spindle whorl is 29mm in diameter with a central perforation that is 9mm in diameter. If decorated, the decoration is hard to make out: it probably consisted of random lines in relief on the diagonal surface. It has been noted that the weight of a spindle whorl is demonstrative of the thickness of yarn produced, with lighter spindle whorls (3 - 5 grams) being used for spinning cotton and the heavier ones (30 - 35 grams) for spinning wool (Margeson 1993, page 184). This example weighs 41.47 grams…

Small trade weight of cast copper alloy. Depicts inscription WIV (William 4th) beneath a crown with a possible provincial mark WK beneath. The W may indicate 'Wiltshire' but it is unclear what the K represents. William 4th reigned from 1830-1837 therefore the weight was cast in this period and follows the introduction of the 1826 'Imperial Standards' act (Bailey 2000 page 43).

Small late 8th/early 9th century Viking lead weight into which has been inserted a piece of Irish, Scottish or Pictish metalwork of an 'Insular Art' style. While the weight itself was made from cast lead, the piece of inserted metalwork was made from cast cu-alloy which was subsequently gilded (small fragments of gilding remain in the grooves of the carved decoration). The decoration of the cu-alloy inlaid piece is fragmentary and seems to have been part of an ornamental interlacing, probably floral scrollwork border with a thinner, hatched border underneath.

Small cast lead rectangular Viking weight dating from 800 to 1100 AD. The upper surface has been decorated with a thin openwork copper-alloy plate; gilding survives in the grooves of the decoration. The design is unclear, but may represent two interlacing animals, perhaps birds seen in profile. A long neck ending in a head with round eye and long beak appears to extend from a body with a D-shaped wing decorated with two oblique grooves. A second long neck or body may cross over the first, and also end in a beak. There is a large roundel between the two beaks, apparently a space-fillin…

A fragment of a cast copper-alloy handle from a Roman skillet or patera (saucepan). The fragment comes from the side of the handle where it would have joined the body of the vessel.

The moulded decoration consists of a band and groove which run parallel to the outside edge. There is what looks like a circular perforation or rivet hole (with fused rivet still in place) in the centre of the fragment, A patera with a similar form of…

A fragment of a cast copper-alloy handle from a Roman skillet or patera (saucepan) dating from the 1st century AD. The fragment is the outer side of the handle with part of the circular terminal and perforation still remaining. The surface shows corrosive products but is otherwise in good condition. The decoration on the obverse is clear: it consists of two deep grooves that run parallel to the outside of the handle and two circular moulded bands or ropes around the circular hole in the centre of the terminal and along the outside of the terminal. The handle was stemped on the obver…

Almost complete cast cu-alloy two-part trebuchet or tumbrel-type folding coin balance dating from the medieval period, i.e. c. AD1200-1500. This type of balance for weighing individual coins was formed from two arms, which pivot in the middle allowing the balance to be opened into a cross shape to be used, or folded flat for storage (see attached image). The (when unfolded) horizontal arm included an integral pan and a (probably) acorn-shaped integral weight, now missing. Both this arm and the wider one which contains the hinge are decorated with thick, stepped criss-cross transverse …

An exact parallel was found at Hintlesham, Suffolk and reported to the PAS, Find ID SF10571. An example bearing a male figure was found in Lancashire (E83DD3).

Pewter 'horn book' with letters W, X, Y and Z in relief above a grid pattern. There are fragments of the letters Q, R, S, T and V above, separated by a horizontal line from the letters below. Full-size hornbooks (of wood and horn or mica) were used as teaching aids, but it seems likely that small lead versions were toys; most seem to be 17th-century in date (Lewis 2012, 98-101).
