Object type: NAIL CLEANER
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy probable nail cleaner. A narrow straight-sided strip with a point at either end, one longer and one shorter. The longer point may imitate the form of an angle-backed knife, an Anglo-Saxon and later form, while the shorter point is a downward angled triangle, p[erhaps a perfunctory tang for the 'knife'. The resemblance to a miniature tool or weapon may not be fortuitous, and is characteristic of both real and symbolic grooming tools accompanying early Anglo-Saxon cremation burials. The object is thickest in the middle, and thinned, perhaps by use, towards its ends. Suggeste…

Copper alloy possible mount fragment. A small fragment from a cast object with curvilinear interlaced elements, possibly openwork, and with an off-centre fixing hole of diameter 2.5mm - if this is not merely a further part of a decorative design. The finder kindly suggests a Saxon date, and the reddish tint of the metal is indeed characteristic of Anglo-Scandinavian metalwork from the region. Its partial survival may tend to increase a vaguely zoomorphic appearance: to this reporter, the object appears like a grazing animal inverted [not a typical choice for the Anglo-Scandinavian craf…

Lead possible weight. Cast cylindrical weight, with numerous crescentic impressions on its underside [as cast], which was probably uneven with an intermittently upstanding rim. Patinated. The mass might suggest this to have represented ten Viking-Age units, as used for silver bullion transactions, though the correspondence with the contemporary Danish and Norse systems is less exact than is normally acceptable to this reporter. The castellated edge might alternatively point to this being a playing piece for a game such as Hnafetafl, in which a King was distinguished from plainer pieces…
