Solid cast lead handle from the butt end of a toy pistol with two circular apertures at the broken end, within an expanded collar, which would have attached to the body of the gun.

The handle has been decorated on both sides with three moulded curved lines, defined by four rec…

Object type: STRAP END
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: East Riding of Yorkshire

Early Medieval, copper alloy strap end, which does not fit into Thomas' classification but is best seen as a varient of his Class D.

On the body is a panel of niello inlay. Trewhiddle style decoration consists of an animal, facing towards the strap end's split but with its head turned back over its shoulder. Some niello survives. Only one rivet was used, set within a plain, rounded area. There are two indents o…

An incomplete stone mortar or type of saddle quern of Unknown date. The object is sub-triangular in plan and sub-rectangular in cross-section. It is composed of fossiliferous Bembridge Limestone (not Quarr Stone) and the steeply carved oval recess is smooth through use. The sides are generally irregular.

A reddened area on the side may indicate burning or heating. The stone is generally a buff colour and the b…

Early Medieval, copper alloy strap end of Thomas' Class A Type 2, with geometric decoration and possible inlay. The strap end is lanceolate with a simplified animal head terminal made up of four facets representing the forehead and nose.

These lines are inlaid with a white substance which appears soft. It is not soil and is notably absent from the surviving slot of the split end, again suggesting that it is a feature of the strap ends dec…
