A Medieval copper-alloy rotary key (c. 1350-c. 1400). The incomplete openwork bow is flat on both faces. There is no collar between the bow and shank. The oval shank is solid throughout its length.

Object type: BELL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy possible bell fragment. A tiny shard possibly from a cast one-piece spherical bell, with plain upper and lower hemispheres, and a median ridge where they met. The very fragmentary nature of the object may evidence either deliberate destruction, perhaps for recycling, or very intense post-medieval and modern cultivation of the area whence it comes. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1700 Height: 15.5mm, Width: 23.1mm, Thickness (wall): 1.7mm, Weight: 3.82gms

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy brooch fragment. Cast tapered flat or strip bow from a bow brooch of uncertain type: possibly Aucissa, Hod Hill or Durotrigan (Mackreth 2012 pls 88-101); at all events, probably of an Early Roman type. The fragment is broadest at the top, where iron staining may suggest it formerly incorporated an iron spring or axis bar. There is a possible constriction below this point, with the bow continuing as a tapered strip with median ridge, the latter possibly textured. The distribution of the Hod Hill in particular is linked to the presence of the early Roman Army, and a tiny scr…

Object type: SHOT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead shot fragment. Cast ball, neatly cut, reducing the object to one quarter of its original form. This might represent improvisation of a quarter ounce [c.7 grams] weight, guided by the impression that a musket ball weighed one averdepois ounce. During the English Civil War, the musket ball was meant to weigh one twelth of an averdepois pound -described as 12 bore - and therefore well over an ounce, though field evidence may cast doubt on how rigidly this standard was followed. By the Napoleonic Wars, the musket ball for the Brown Bess is reckoned at about an ounce. So, if this modif…

Copper alloy buckle fragment. Cast fragment from the frame of a buckle with rounded corners and the housing for a separate steel spindle. The frame is ribbed with moulded decoration of segmented vermiform appearance on its display face; the curvature in profile may suggest this comes from a shoe buckle.

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead possible weight fragment. Cast flat-sided rectangle of lead, lipped from the mould along two adjacent edges and sheared at one end. Patinated. The present mass could point to an original value in excess of one averdepois ounce for the post-medieval period, though the loss of an uncertain extent vitiates further speculation; the cutting might represent deliberate cancellation rather than fortuitous damage. Alternatively perhaps a small ingot. Suggested date: Unknown, Later Medieval to Post-Medieval, 1350-1800 Length: 30.0mm, Width: 28.2mm, Thickness: 6.0mm, Weight: 39.50gms

Lead bag seal. Cast disc with two opposed pairs of holes in its edge, and bearing stamped European and Cyrillic lettering on both sides, which appear as: NP / F[--] //4 /ACNM/ONOB. This is probably a customs seal for a consignment of goods such as hemp or seed which has passed through a Russian port, possibly St Petersburg.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy nutcrackers fragment. One complete arm and the top of its counterpart as far as the end of the jaws, from a pair of nut-crackers - though Dr Kevin Leahy advises that similar tools were used at table for cracking shellfish claws. The arm is of a bevelled biconvex section with a graceful curve towards the end of the handle. The thickness, at 10mm, might hint at design according to the metric system introduced to Europe under Napoleon c.1800, and latterly adopted by industry elsewhere.

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron nails. Twenty-one fragments of wrought iron nails and nail shanks. Most exhibit a square section which may arise from the flaking of corrosion as much as from their original form. The heads, where they remain, are often formed by a flattening of the broader end of the shank, though one achieves a T-shape, one retains part of a flat rounded head, two have rounded knob ends, and one has a squared end like a bolt. The poor condition will have arisen from repeated disturbance in the plough-soil, though some may also have been subjected to the burning of wood into which they had been d…

Copper alloy vessel fragments. Two tiny scraps from the thin wall of cast vessel/s, identified as such by the sooting from use on a hearth on one side of each fragment. The larger piece is slightly concave on its sooted face, suggesting it comes from a curved part of the wall, perhaps near the rim. Fiercely abraded.

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron hook. A wrought iron hook comprising a U-shaped shank of rounded section with a tightly curled loop at one end and tapered slightly towards an expanded and rounded knob at the other; the knob was presumably intended to prevent a load from slipping off the hook. This might have been used for lifting heavy items, perhaps with a strap passing through the U-shaped part of the object. The mass suggests good survival of the metal core, and hence, in an open field context subject to recurrent disturbance, a relatively recent date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1650-1850 Height: 99.3mm,…
