Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fine grained dense grey stone, possible rubber or whetstone. Flat-sided oval ended river-washed pebble; one end chipped. The surface is possibly smoothed by wear overall. The form is probably natural and the stone derived from glacial drift. This might have been used as an improvised polisher for organic materials, including textiles, or alternatively as a whetstone. The use of adventitiously recovered stones for such functions is especially characteristic of the Anglo-Saxon period, sandwiched as it is between eras characterised by more systematic exploitation and marketing of stones a…

Copper alloy mount. Flat sub-triangular plate with a rounded lug at its apex with a drilled aperture of diameter 7.4mm. A countersunk hole of diameter 2.8mm and aperture diameter c.2mm is set towards each of the lower corners, and one retains a probably iron rivet of diameter c. 2.7mm and length c.3.2mm. Three broad diagonally incised lines pass across one side of the plate, clear of the rivets. The object probably functioned as an escutcheon to permit the suspension of a vessel. The use of iron rivets, if this material identification is sustained, allies this to work of the Early Medi…

Copper alloy strap fitting. Small cast rectangular frame at the end of a narrow pointed plate of plano-convex section. The pointed end bears a pair of shallow pits and two or three diagonal grooves, all very worn but still reminiscent of the zoomorphic decoration of Middle Saxon ends of Thomas Class A. Lacking provision for attachment or for the operation of a pin, this is probably distinct from those medieval buckles cast with an integral plate. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-850. Length: 35mm, Width: 11.5mm, Thickness: 2.7mm, Weight: 2.22gms.

Possible pottery fragment. Dark grey reduced fabric, apparently with poorly sorted sand inclusions. A pair of deeply scratched lines on one surface may be adventitious damage. The fabric is possibly an Early Anglo-Saxon one, and the vessel, if such it is, would be hand made. However, the mass is extraordinarily light, and this might rather be a fragment of cinder. This sherd was kindly examined by Wallace Collyer of the North Lincolnshire Pottery Research Group. Suggested date: possibly Early Medieval, 410-700. Weight: 4.32gms.
