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…

Object type: HOOK
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,…

A fragment of an iron and copper alloy knife of medieval or post-medieval date. The fragment consists of the copper alloy guard and the stump of the iron blade and hilt. The guard is broadly rectangular in plan and profile but in plan is narrowed towards the centre. It is a stretched hexagon in cross-section. One edge of one end of the guard has a projecting lip; this feature does not appear on the other end off the guard. The stump of the blade is heavily rusted, but it is thick at on one side than the other indicating that this object was a single edged knife. The lip on the guard is…

Iron knife fragment. Wrought iron blade and tang of a whittle tanged knife with a V-section blade and a rectangular section tang. The tip of the blade is lost to an ancient break, while the tang is chipped at both ends [recent damage]. The whittle tang was the predominant form of hafting from the early medieval period and through the high Middle Ages. The mass suggest fairly good survival of the metal core. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1400 Length: 112.7mm, Height: 16.7mm, Thickness: 6.0mm, Weight: 28.50gms

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron strap. A fragment of a wrought iron object with one straight long side, the other long side having a gentle curve. The strap is slightly [by c.5mm] thicker at one end, which bears a drilled hole, possibly a fixing point. The other end is lightly curved. Probably building ironwork from an indeterminate setting. The good survival of the metal, inferred from its mass and good surface condition, could point to a relatively recent date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1650-1900 Length: 138mm, Width: 43.5mm, Thickness: 12.2mm, Weight: c.230gms

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron unidentified object. A triangle of wrought iron, of possibly rounded section, with an apex formed by the union of the two ends of a narrow bar, turned over at right angles to the plane of the triangle; the section here is squared. This resembles the most primitive form of stirrup, though, as it survives, the object lacks provision for attachment of leathers. The good condition and mass of the object, indicating survival of a metal core, should point to a more recent date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1900 Height: 111mm, Width: 111mm, Thickness: 7.8mm, Weight: 98.85gms

Four Roman (c.AD 43 to 409) iron hob nails: All have hemi-sperical heads and a square or rectangular bent shank which forms a 'J' in profile. The shanks taper to a blunt point. They measure between 14.18mm long and 4.48mm. Hobnails were used in Roman footwear, boots and sandals (caligae) were made from three main pieces of leather, the upper sole, lamina and the insole, all three layers were clenched together with hobnails, frequently arranged in patterns, some of which were created to facilitate comfortable walking (Bishop and Coulston: 1993).

A heavily corroded whittle tang iron knife of likely Medieval date, c.1200-1500. Description: The knife has a blade with a diamond cross-section and slightly curved back which becomes more pronounced towards the point. The tang is clearly hammered and rectangular in cross-section. The blade appears to come to an intended point rather than a break so likely extends to its' full length, the tang is les certain and seems a bit short for the length of blade. Much of the detail is obscured either by remaining corrosion or from corrosion damage. The knife remains a dark brown colour where t…

Lead seal matrix. Cast oval or vesica-shaped seal matrix with a moulded fleur de lis , expanded at one end to form a suspension lug. The matrix bears an oval frame with a cross pattée. In the centre of the seal is an incised pointed oval which does not appear to contain a motif, surrounding the pointed oval is an inscription which reads +S'hVGEIL' OH'. The legend is incomplete because the craftsperson seems to have mispelt the inscription. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1300. Length: 37 mm, Width: 22 mm, Thickness: 3 mm, Weight: 22.33g

An incomplete iron horse shoe of later Medieval or Post Medieval date (1250-1550). The elongated shape of the shoe indicates it was for a rear hoove. The web of the shoe is unusally wide with an arched top to the narrow inner gap. Looking at the ground surface the shoe has lost most of its left hand branch and is heavily corroded giving it an uneven surface. On the left hand side there are three nail holes, all with protuding iron nail heads in place, and positioned opposite, on the broken branch, are two broadly rectanganular nail holes, now filled by corrossion. So the shoe had a 3:3…

A wrought iron arrowhead of medieval date, AD.1200-1550. The object is formed of a round socket that makes up the majority of the object's length. The tip of the arrowhead has a diamond shaped cross section. There is a slight waist where the tip meets the socket, however, the maximum width of the tip does not exceed that of the socket. Jessop 1996 type M3 Arrowheads of this type are typically 'military' in nature though they would serve equally in hunting. They were produced rapidly and in their thousands particularly during the 15th and early 16th century. They are often termed 'shor…

Incomplete iron and copper alloy linch pin dating to the peirod c. 100 BC - AD 100. The head is missing. The iron shank is now heavily corroded, the original cross-section indiscernible. The base of the shank fits into a socketed copper alloy foot. Sub-conical in form, traces of a moulded collar are visible at the mouth of the socket under a layer of iron corrosion. Just below, on one side only is a moulded relief ring-and-dot motif. The foot curves along its length and expands into a discoidal terminal. The face of the terminal exhibits a raised circular border expanding in width from…
