Cast copper-alloy sword pommel of the hollow cast 'lobed' type. It is an elongated oval in plan (i.e. viewed from below) with two opposing faces that are subtriangular. It is semicircular in cross-section. The slot for the handle is oval. It consists of five curved lobes, all of them hollow, increasing in height towards the centre. The central lobe is very much larger than the four side lobes, and has a oval perforation, ca.5/7mm in Length, to allow it to fit over the tang of the sword. There is some damage around the perforation and some loss of surface. The perforation then flares o…

Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast cu-alloy knotted finger ring dating from early Medieval-Modern times. It was made from one long square-sectioned wire of cu-alloy which was twisted in itself in places. The decoration on and around the bezel consists of two knots tied into each other and around the hoop with another knot tied around the hoop on either side - thus, four knots in all. The wire was only twisted in the loops of the knots, but not the hoop. Knotteds finger rings are very difficult to date. Simple examples made from silver have been found in Early Medieval contexts, but this type of ring has been popula…

This report concerns a hoard of Anglo-Saxon silver pennies found on farmland near Preston, Lancs on March 14th, 2010. The coins were discovered by Alan Reynolds, while metal detecting. The precise find-spot is recorded, but it has been agreed that this will only be identified as 'near Preston' for public purposes. The coins are all of a single type, the CRVX type of Æthelræd II, king of England (978-1016), issued in the 990s. There are three complete coins, substantial fragments of two more, and smaller fragments of a further two. The coins were found in fairly close proximity, w…

This report concerns three items found near Carnforth in Lancashire in 2010. The items were found close to the find-spot of a Viking hoard discovered in 1997 (TAR 1998-1999, no. 84), and it was considered possible that the new finds might be stray finds from that hoard. Two of the finds are undiagnostic. Both appear to be a fairly base silver or lead alloy. One is a slender ingot with a section in the shape of an isosceles triangle with rounded angles, 72 x 8 x 8 mm, weight 39.38g, broken at one end. The form is known in the Viking Age, but it is undiagnostic, as the form is also kn…

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An early-medieval barrel-shaped weight perhaps related to weighing of bullion and Islamic silver coinage (Dirhams) in Viking period exchanges for which these weights are often associated. (cf. SWYOR-E16C55). It is suggested that the weight may be part of a series based on the Viking ora or ortugar weighing systems, used for measuring bullion. This might indicate a date range in the 9th-11th centuries for the current object. It is biconical in form with flattened top and bottom surfaces. The weight has an iron core surrounded by a largely copper alloy casing. There are only 5 other …

Fragment of a possible cast copper alloy strap end of early medieval date, possibly 9th century AD. Possibly Middle or Late Saxon, Thomas Class A. Only the upper part and part of the two misaligned rivet holes survives. It would have probably had a split-end, convex sides and possibly an animal head terminal, but it is too worn and damaged now to discern its original features. It appears that the obverse was decorated with moulded rather than niello or inlaid decoration. There is no trace of a rectangular central plate and the animal/beast was moulded just below the two rivet holes.

A copper alloy sword pommel of Early Medieval date. The object is of late lobed form, probably of 10th or 11th century date.

A cast lead alloy spindle whorl dating from the Early Medieval to the Medieval period, (AD1066-1500). The object is circular in plan and biconical with a large central circular perforation. The internal perforation measures 9.5mm in diameter. One face of the object is decorated with a series of moulded lines which radiate outwards from the perforation. Between each line are two moulded pellets. The opposite face is decorated with runic script. It is possible that the script is pseudo-runic, and merely intended to imitate a script, as not all letters seem to be genuine Anglo-Saxo…

Lead alloy probably early medieval (Viking) weight probably dating circa 800 - 1100AD. The weight is circular in plan and the sides are convex tapering towards the base. The upper surface is flattened with a circular depression at the top probably for an inserted object now missing. The object is a creamy white in colour with an even patina. Abrasion caused by movement whilst within the plough soil may have resulted in the loss of some of the original surface detail. The diameter is 20mm, thickness 20mm and the weight 24.99g. Viking period lead weights were often set with Lunettes ty…
