Copper alloy possible scabbard chape fragment. A cast sub-triangular plate with the relict of one of a probable pair of spurs at its wider end, which is bevelled, and possibly broken along its other edges. Plain borders, slightly raised, appear along one side and across the wider end of the object, and these enclose a curvilinear element of moulded decoration. From its form, this might alternatively be part of a stirrup mount; a reddish tint is often characteristic of Anglo-Scandinavian metalwork. Extremely abraded, as are many finds reported from the vicinity. Suggested date: Early Me…

Lead weight. Cast discoid weight, possibly marked on one flat surface by the loss of a thin embedded object. Patinated. The mass, as it now stands, could permit this to have served to represent a slightly overweight six units as used in Viking Age Denmark [of 4.07gms], or six slightly underweight units as used in Viking Age Dublin and its dependencies, including Viking York [of 4.43gms], both equating to one ora/ore, roughly equivalent to an ounce. The correspondence with these systems is less exact than is normally required by this reporter to advance this interpretation, though this …

Copper alloy bar ingot with rounded and flattish ends 'finger' form. The ingot is D shaped in section with a flat base and convex tip and tapers in width and thickness from one end to the other. The length is 59mm and the width is 11mm. The ingot is not diagnostic and is therefore difficult to date; ingots of this form in precious metals have been found associated with late Early Medieval period finds. (Blackburn and Rogerson Medieval Archaeology 1993, 222-4). It has been suggested that copper alloy ingots from Norfolk of bar-like form and with transverse hammering may belong to the Vi…
