Copper alloy pin fragment. Cast pin with a globular head with incised slashes on its upper part and a drilled pit of diameter 1.5mm diameter occupying a flattened top of diameter 3.5mm, and so appearing like a ring-and-dot, all above a collar which separates it from a round section shank of diameter 2.2mm which appears to expand very slightly from the collar to the current end; cf. Flixborough types 131 and 132. The lower shank is lost. The slashed decoration is slightly angled but does not actually travel diagonally across the whole head, and so departs from 'wrythen' convention. Prob…

The lower arm is truncated, and serves as the origin point for a convex curved mid bow.

A sherd from the incurved rim of a bowl. The fabric is hard-fired and banded with a pink oxidised inner surface and a grey reduced outer surface. There are profuse, angular inclusions of bivalve shell with grain size ranging from <1mm to >3mm, poorly sorted by size. The sherd appears hand-made rather than wheel-thrown and the surface unfinished. Breaks are fresh and un-abraded but there is some abrasion to other surfaces. The curve of the sherd suggests a bowl with rim of diameter c. 210mm. The sherd is similar to the Lincoln-Kiln type and other local shelly-wares from the 9th-1…
