County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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-…

Object type: STRAP END
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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 …

Object type: POT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
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.

Pottery. Grey reduced fabric with abundant calcareous inclusions to length 1mm and sparse micaceous inclusions to a length of 1.5mm, possibly handmade, from the wall of a globular vessel.

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.

A copper alloy early-medieval pin dating to the 8th or 9th century AD. The pin has a large biconical head, flattened on top, with a moulded collar below. This biconical head is 9.3mm long with a maximum diameter of 9.2mm. Below the collar, the shank, which is circular in section (1.95mm diameter), extends c.15mm before bending at a 90 degree angle and extending a further 26mm to where it tapers to a point.

Lead possible spindle whorl. Cast conical whorl or weight with one larger and one smaller flat side and moulded tapered aperture of maximum diameter 6.3mm whose rectangular shape on the narrower side may suggest the use of a hand made nail as a former. There are broad vertical flutes around about half the circumference. Patinated overall. The form compares with Walton Rogers form A2, and the aperture size would be apt to a light spindle of Anglo-Saxon type. Its mass would permit use for spinning a fine yarn. An alternative use as a weight might also be entertained. Suggested date: Earl…
