Record ID: NLM-6D2E8B
Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Ferruginous limestone probable whetstone fragment. Stone shaped like an oversized finger with one markedly smoothed broad surface which is lightly dished by wear and lightly scored by diagonal and transverse grooves suggestive of the sharpening of pointed pins or needles. Limited patches of wear have also partially smoothed the opposite face. Broken raggedly at its wider end. The use of a relatively local stone is likely, which is characteristic of hones of the Later Iron Age to Early Medieval periods. Accompanying material tends to point to the later part of this date-range. Suggested…

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fine grained compacted sandstone whetstone fragment. A rectangular section fragment probably from the middle of a whetstone, possibly of hog-backed formAll the faces save for the broken ends are smoothed by wear. Two faces meeting at an obtuse angle are likely to mark the top of the whetstone, and a dished face opposite these faces its most heavily used and worn face. The selection of a local [to northern Britain] rather than an imported stone may suggest a pre-Viking date. The hog-backed form in such stones occurs amongst early medieval finds at Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire (For…

A fragment of a copper-alloy strap-end dating to the mid to late early-medieval period, c. 9th century AD. Only the terminal of the object survives, with the rest of the object lost to old damage. Though only a small part of the original object survives, the strap-end can be classified to Thomas' Class A, though as the main body of the strap-end is absent, it cannot be assigned to any specific sub-type. However, it is likely that this part of the object would have been decorated with Trewhiddle-style motifs. The fragment is sub-triangular and has a slightly curved front at its edges …

Lead spindle whorl. Cast cylindrical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 9mm, Walton Rogers form B. One side bears an intermittent series of fine and closely spaced radial lines which may be impressed, possibly from a small ribbed fossil such as an ammonite, while the metal cooled in an open mould. These marks confer a faintly vermiform segmented appearance. A fossil may alternatively have been used to form the mould. Patinated. The spindle hole falls at the upper end of the range which might qualify this as of Anglo-Saxon date. Walton Rogers' form B whorls occur in 8th-…

An almost complete Early-Medieval (Anglo-Saxon) copper-alloy strap-end (c. 775-c. 995). The strap-end is 'tongue-shaped' in plan and has a split attachment end with two incomplete circular rivet holes. The flat surface of the upper surface has an engraved anthropomorphic design comprising a forward-facing human-like figure, probably male. This figure is unclear due to corrosion but seems to have an elongated face, arms at sides and stylised legs indicating that the figure may be seated. There are no genitals displayed as seen on some other strap-ends of this type. The curving sides …

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pottery. Grey reduced fabric with organic temper which has left long voids in the fabric and with very sparse mica inclusions to a length of 1mm, probably handmade and from the wall of a globular vessel. The appearance of mica may suggest a non-local fabric. The fabric is darker at its thicker part outside and at its thinner part within. The sparkling finish is comparable to that of urns and pots used at the local Anglo-Saxon cemeteries of Fonaby and Cleatham. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 450-700. Thickness: 11.7mm, Weight: 14.15gms.

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a medial moulded aperture of diameter 7.5mm with a larger upper and a smaller lower flat faces, Walton Rogers form A2. The object is unusually thin and well finished. A line of faint punch marks follows the outer edge on the upper surface, possibly produced by teeth and perhaps even signalling the temporary conversion of spinster's whorl to teething ring. The mass may suggest a primary function plying cord. The aperture size would allow an Anglo-Saxon date. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-850. Diameter: 34mm, Thickness: 7.8mm, Weigh…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with moulded central aperture of diameter 6.5mm, Walton Rogers form A1. Patinated overall. Rusty material is deposited in the sides of the hole. Slight shrinkage lines in the upper surface may suggest manufacture in an open mould. The mass would permit this to be used to spin a fine yarn. The small aperture is characteristic of an Anglo-Saxon date. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-850. Diameter: 19.7mm, Thickness: 6mm, Weight: 10.37gms.
