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…
