Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An early-medieval copper-alloy strap-end, tentatively classified as Thomas's (2003, 4) Class A, Type 4 (with enamel). This would date the artefact to around the 9th century. The strap-end is of unusual form and construction, and therefore of note. It has curvilinear sides with their widest point around the centre of the main plate. It terminates in a devolved animal head decorated simply with a transverse ridge at the plate end. The plate is formed of conjoined cells of elongated scrolled C shape. There are two larger such cells that abut back-to-back at the terminal, above which two …

A fragment of an Early medieval, probably 8th century, copper alloy circular pinhead or brooch with traces of gilding. Part of the circumference survives along with panels of single-strand, non-zoomorphic, interlace and part of a volute-shaped element. This object is truncated but the curvature of the surviving edge suggests an original diameter of c. 30.0mm. It is likely that the plain, but gilded, circular area with a central hole was one of four such elements, a feature appears on the Witham pins (Wilson, 1964, pl.XVIII, No. 19).The style is similar to SUR-BD3980 and NLM-028751.

From Chris Marshall Buckles through the Ages TYPE IVA - loop with internal points. Date range 1250-1400AD. This type is common on Medieval sites and dated examples seem to be from the mid-13thc onwards. No examples have been found with a tongue and so their exact function and purpose is uncertain. Possibilities are use as a type of clasp or indeed as a strap-slide.

A copper alloy possible pin of Early Medieval date. The object is anthropomorphic, being moulded in the form of a human male head, and inverted piriform in plan. The pointed end at the chin of the face is a patinated break. The object has a flat back and a moulded, three-dimensional front. It appears to be solid. The moulded head is smaller than the integral flat back of the object, so there is a flat narrow projecting rim round the edge of the object. The edge of this is chipped in places. Kevin Leahy interprets this (from images) as un untrimmed casting flash, and suggests that the …

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead spindle whorl. Small whorl of plano-convex form with angled sides and a moulded aperture of diameter 8mm; patinated overall and abraded. The small size and mass would permit this to be used to spin a fine yarn, which is unusual for a whorl made of lead; the aperture size could suggest either a Roman or Anglo-Saxon date; in the latter case this might qualify as Walton Rogers form A2 - the accompanying material gives scant indication of Roman activity. Suggested date: possibly Early Medieval, 500-700. Diameter: 19.2mm, Thickness: 9.9mm, Weight: 13.26gms.
