Object type: PENDANT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
TREASURE CASE : 2002 T266 The pendant is cast in the form of a double-headed hammer with an elongated pentagonal head, which is slightly thickened vertically where it joins the tapering, rectangular-sectioned 'shaft'. At the end of the shaft a suspension loop was originally formed by hammering the end into a flat strip and curving it into a loop for hanging from a metal ring, but the tip is now broken off. The pendant is undecorated. Discussion: Scandinavian and English examples of Thor's hammer pendants are discussed in the entry for the find from Essex (no. 44 above, 2002 T168). Lik…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL

TREASURE CASE : 2002 T106 The dress-hook comprises a lozenge-shaped plate cast in relief with outer pierced and shaped border. Within this is a lozenge-shaped cell with raised rope edge containing three rows of four cast bosses. In the ground within the cell, cast filigree ornament. The entire front surface appears to have been gilded. On the reverse is a single transverse attachment bar which has been broken and soldered back into a slightly different position: evidence of an old repair. Damage to the backplate at one of the points of the lozenge on the reverse may indicate that ther…

Object type: COIN HOARD
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
TREASURE CASE : 2005 T382. Coin hoard: One groat of Mary I and two sixpences of Elizabeth I: Mary I (1553-1554); Groat (pomegranate) Elizabeth I; Sixpences: im pheon, 1564; im castle, 1571 Date: 1570s or later Discussion: The groat was found a few feet away from the two sixpences. Two non-coin items were found in the vicinity: a lead musket ball and the rim of a pottery vessel. The pottery fragment seems to belong to an originally sizable vessel and there is no particular reason to link it to the coins. A single musket ball would also make an unlikely companion to a group of c…

TREASURE CASE : 2004 T482. A gold finger-ring set with a conical garnet. The hoop is hollow cast, oval in profile, and expands smoothly to the flattened bezel. There is a small tear on the top of one of the shoulders and a slight circular dent. The hoop is extremely narrow, so must have been made either for a child or a very petite woman. Dimensions: External diameter: 14.0 x 11.5 mm; internal: 8.5 x 6.1 mm; weight: 2.58g. Surface analysis conducted at the British Museum indicated a gold content of approximately 96 per cent.

TREASURE CASE : 2003 T143. Thick, bevelled, re-used cabochon garnet, the upper surface ground flat, set in a simple, well-fitting cell which is edged with a single strand of twisted wire rope. The suspension loop, which is made in one with the thin back plate, survives only as a damaged stub of lightly swaged strip. The back plate is deeply concave. Discussion: The Kirk Deighton pendant belongs to a large family of personal ornaments made in similar style that came into fashion in the 7th century. It would originally have been one of several on a high status necklace. It can be compa…

TREASURE CASE : 2003 T40. Two joining fragments form a parallel sided strip, or ribbon. The whole is heavily disfigured by buckling and denting, including a sharp bend at the break. Both ends are neatly squared suggesting that the complete object is present. One of the terminals is emphasised by a slight external beading. Prior to damage, the back would have been flat, while the front carries twenty-four very finely incised grooves aligned longitudinally. Discussion: This object cannot be identified with total certainty, but similar multi-grooved ribbon ornaments of Bronze Age date a…

TREASURE CASE : 2003 T17. A medieval, silver-gilt signet ring. The bezel of the ring is octagonal with a beaded border. In its centre it is engraved with a heart surrounded by either a scourge or the Crown of Thorns. Within the heart is a cross with rounded, bulbous terminals. Around the hoop of the ring is an inscription in old French which reads: SAUNS DE PART ('without leaving'). The phrase is commonly used in love jewellery to express unending devotion. In this context, its meaning may have religious significance given the images drawn from the Passion of Christ which form the ri…
