County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Silver possible stylus fragment. A cast rectangular stem broken at one end and with an expanded and slightly rounded collar separating it from a wedge-shaped flattened blade, now mostly lost, with its remainder worn to a single point, at the other. If this identification were to be sustained, its implication could be more important than its presently unprepossessing appearance might suggest. Along with two mounts interpreted as possible book fittings, this could evidence a literate or monastic component to early medieval occupation in the vicinity. The square section is a feature of so…

Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy unidentified object. A sub-rectangular flat-sided billet of abraded copper alloy, probably cast. One side bears three or more small [length 1.4mm] stamps at one end, which was a decorative technique especially favoured for copper alloy objects of the early Anglo-Saxon period. Much material of this period is reported from the same general location. Candidates for the original object whence this comes might include a broad band annular brooch, which excavation shows to be a prolific class of dress accessory from 5th and 6th-century cemeteries. These remain perplexingly rare …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy possible girdle hanger fragment. A cast strip wuith straight sides, slightly expanded at one end where a hole of diameter 3.7mm is drilled as if for suspension of the object. Broken at the other end. The display side bears neatly incised linear borders and a ring of annular stamps of diameter 1.2mm, of which about 27 appear, with only two slightly superimposed. Bent. If the identification offered is sustained, this would imply a 6th-century date, as girdle hangers were part of the 'object kit' deemed suitable for the burial costume of an adult Anglian woman in her 'nationa…

Copper alloy probable strap end. A cast rod which expands in width and diminishes in its thickness [c.1mm] towards a sub-triangular end, the expansion beginning approximately at its midpoint. A drilled hole of diameter c.1.5mm appears centrally on the spatulate end, and was perhaps to attach the object to a narrow strap. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 600-700. Length: 44.4mm, Width: 8mm, Thickness: 2.5mm, Weight: 1.95gms

Copper alloy tweezers fragment. A pair of tweezers with one arm mostly lost. What remains comprises a narrow and thicker handle and a sharply expanded sub-triangular blade with the battered remnant of a crimped edge. The handle bears very closely spaced horizontally incised lines which combine decorative effect with enhanced grip. This appeared on both arms but gives out at the loop formed by the sharp folding of the object, and a little above the remaining blade. The blade is sharply bent out of alignment. Tweezers are a common component of furnished inhumation and cremation burials o…

Copper alloy tweezers fragment. One arm from a pair of tweezers, with a narrow straight-sided shaft, gently expanded and thinned [to thickness 0.7mm] towards a spatulate end, where the blade is neatly crimped. The object is broken across the returning curve of a sharply bent top loop. Closely spaced horizontally incised or moulded lines on the narrower part afford grip in addition to their decorative effect. Tweezers are a common component of furnished inhumation and cremation burials of the early Anglo-Saxon period. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 410-700. Length: 55.6mm, Width: 12.0…

Copper alloy strap end. A straight-sided strip with a rounded point at one end, straight at the other. The latter bears a round drilled hole of diameter 2.7mm, presumably to attach the plate to a strap and possibly to another metal component. Decoration comprises two neatly incised pairs of lines to either side of the fixing hole, and the object is polished by wear. Bent. The study of the sizes of buckles from Anglo-Saxon graves (e.g. Drinkall, in Drinkall and Foreman 1998, page 272) suggests increasing currency of narrow straps to be a feature of the 7th century. Suggested date: Earl…

Copper alloy tweezers. A thick strip which was narrow at its mid-part and expanded towards its ends, where the metal is thinner, folded to form a pair of tweezers. The end of each arm is crimped. The display side of each arm bears stamped ring and dot of diameter 2.4mm, with five on one side and at least three - possibly more - on the other, haphazardly arranged. The object is complete, retaining its tensile strength, though bent, presumably adventitious post-depositional damage. Tweezers are a common component of furnished inhumation and cremation burials of the early Anglo-Saxon peri…

Copper alloy tweezers. A neatly cut straight-sided strip, folded and crimped to form a suspension loop, and with arms of slightly expanded width at their ends. The loop bears six ridges with grooves between them. Each arm bears three groups of neatly incised horizontal paired lines on its upper extent. The object is complete, though now bent due to adventitious damage. Tweezers are a common component of furnished inhumation and cremation burials of the early Anglo-Saxon period, though the form of loop recalls that appearing on pendants dated to the 7th century.

Copper alloy mount. Cast pelta-shaped plate with the stubs of paired prongs now of length c.5mm and diameter c.3mm, with rust staining between them. The front is plain though very uneven in its surface texture. Mounts with this style of fixing are conventionally dated to the post-medieval period, but in this case the object may have contributed to a larger cruciform design, here presumably a cross with equal arms with rounded ends and concave sides. As a composite scheme this would be apt to the decoration of a book, though this itself carries significant implications were an early med…

Copper alloy brooch fragment. Cast foot from a cruciform brooch, comprising an anthropomorphic mask and a trilobite foot plate. The foot is separated from the rest of the bow [lost] by a double moulding. Below this there is a pair of protruding bosses as eyes, and paired chevron mouldings below these whose lower point extends to the middle of the foot plate. The back of the brooch is rough and there is no sign of a catch plate; the massy appearance and lack of fine detail might suggest this to have been cast using another brooch as a master, perhaps to provide a non-functional brooch t…

Copper alloy brooch. Cast small long brooch of cross potent form. A square plate formerly had three arms [two lost] with rounded ends and a rectangular stop at its base dividing it from a concavo-convex curved mid-bow with a slightly hollow back. At the base of this, a pair of triangular hollows mark a further stop separating it from the lower bow, which I straight-sided and slightly tapered towards a thickened moulded foot; there are faint traces of horizontal grooves on the lower bow. The U-shaped lug for a pin [lost] projects from behind the middle of the head and the stub of a catc…

Foot and catch plate from an Anglo-Saxon copper alloy small long brooch. The brooch is broken in front of the catch plate part way within the bow; this bow bears a small area of decoration with a raised dorsal ridge between sunken panels.
