County: North Lincolnshire

Iron metalworking debris. A large oval-ended furnace bottom or bloom [the finder's identification] with a flat top and near-vertical if irregular sides, formed either in the base of an iron ore burning furnace or in a channel cut to receive molten metal from such furnace. The object was retrieved from a reported depth of c.0.9m, and involved the cooperative labours of two people working at arms' length to extract it from the hole. Dr Kevin Leahy kindly comments that the object has the superficial appearance of cast iron, and that this would carry with it an implication of a date af…

There appear to be the letters AG on one face and LA on the reverse face, which is similar to the pendants below, but not a copy of either of them. 'AGLA' is …

Copper alloy and iron ring. Cast annular biconvex object with a wide aperture of diameter 8mm, gilded on its outer surface. A drilled hole set centrally on its side, of diameter 1.6mm, is surrounded by an annular mark of diameter 3mm suggesting something more has been lost from the site; opposite this, there is an iron [tested with magnet]] feature of diameter 3mm, probably its pair. A vertical line on the outer surface, approximately midway between the aperture/s, suggests a break in the gilt surface. A raised circumferential band matches the position of the apertures, though now muc…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy unidentified object. Cast object, flat on one flat side and with a prominent convex drum-shaped feature on the other, which is elsewhere flat with a median thickness of c.2.8mm. Kevin Leahy kindly suggests this may be a post-medieval hinge, as the lack of pin gear and drum shaped feature disqualify it from being an Early Anglo-Saxon brooch. The form resembles that of a small and mutilated long brooch, though there is no trace of pin gear and the drum in position of 'bow' is at right angles to what would be expected, and is solid. Traces of gilding remain on one side of…

A lead alloy possible weight of Post Medieval date. The object is circular in plan and has convex sides. One face is dished and is marked with scratches radiating from the centre. The opposite face has similar scratches, but more of them, and has three concavities with a raised rim and a higher point in the centre. The scratches may be caused by rodent gnawing, but they are probably not random enough for this. The object has a well developed white patina with patches of dark brown. At almost half an ounce in mass (14.04g.), it may have been intended as a 1/2oz weight. It could also ha…

Cast lead alloy lead weight, possibly dating from the later post medieval period, that is c. AD1500-1800. The weight is flat-rectangular in shape and has a flat rectangular cross-section. There is a small copper-alloy piece of metalwork integrated into one of the larger surfaces but it is unclear what it was primary to insertation into the weight. Kevin Leahy (pers. comm.) adds that it does not fit into the Danish module as it does resemble some of the weights on which Dave Haldenby and Jane Kershaw are working.

A complete small blue glass bead of Victorian date. A spherical blue glass bead flattened on two opposing sides. A perforation passes through the centre of the bead from one flattened side to the other. Dimentions: maximum diameter 4.5mm, height 3.0mm and weight 0.1g. The circular vertical perforation has a diameter of 1.0mm. Discussion: Beads of this type can be difficult to date but it is most likely to be of late Post-Medieval date. See NCL-A6B1E7.

A possible cast copper-alloy pestle probably Post Medieval in date (c. AD 1600-1800 AD), now bent, with one half turned through about forty-five degrees. The object is a bar of broadly circular cross section, though with some faceting to its sides. There is a bulge at a point just off centre which acts as a collar. This is echoed by an expanded flat terminal at one end (Dia.: c. 11.3mm). At the other end is a shallowly biconvex terminal knob; the bar expands gradually towards it. This end has a wider diameter (c. 15.7mm) and was presumably the end that was utilised primarily. It bears…

This panel is formed of a large central circle flanked by two smaller circluar knops forming upwardly pointing spirals. A third base spira…

Incomplete cast lead spherical vessel with a protruding cylindrical spout, about 8 mm in diameter, that might have also been used as a handle. This might be a miniature lead vessel, representing a larger copper alloy cauldron or round-bottomed vessel, and was probably used as a toy. A variety of miniature lead-alloy kitchen items are known from the 16th to the 18th century (Egan, 1988, 2). The upper edge of the vessel is torn and uneven, so it is difficult to say whether there was another handle or whether this might be a jug with a spout. It may just be the product of melting lead on…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy object, probably the shaft from a pin, a spoon handle, cosmetic implement or similar object of Roman date. It is formed from a flat sheet of copper-alloy that has been rolled to create a tube that tapers towards one end. A seam is visible along one side, which has been reworked in order to hide or disguise the seam. The object terminates at both ends in old breaks making identification of its original form or function impossible. It has a dark green patina with some pitting in places and measures 50.33mm in length, 3.56mm in diameter, and 1.69g in weigh…

He holds the reins in his left hand and reaches out with his right, likely with a sword in his hand, but this is missing. The rider is sitting on a sad…
