Lead weight. Cast discoid weight with a rectangular figure scored on one face and small (length 1.25mm) wedge shaped punch marks on both its flat surfaces, some arranged in groups, and one group of five forming a rosette pattern. Patinated overall. The mass could suggest this to represent five Anglo-Saxon units of 3.1gms (Smith 1923 and Kruse 1992, cited by Wastling 2009 [Flixborough finds] page 422). The rosette motif resembles motifs in the repertoire of stamps used to decorate cremation urns of the Early Anglo-Saxon period, and its construction here from five stamps might allude to …

A fragment of a probable Early Medieval copper alloy mount of 6th century date. The fragment consists of a raised straight-edged rim and an area of high relief chip-carved zoomorphic decoration. The decoration, which may have originally been gilded, appears to be in Salin's Stlye I, characterised by abstract and disjointed animals, in particular animal legs with projections for toes. The reverse is heavily corroded and appears to be undecorated. The fragment is very thin and no means of attachment are visible, which suggests that it may have been applied to a larger object.
