Flint possible edge-polished fragment. A chunk of lentoid section with an apparently curving cutting edge with polishing immediately adjacent to it, but otherwise bearing the scars of covering scalar working entailing hard hammer removal of a small number of large flakes. Though the putative cutting edge is crisp, the object is broken c.40mm behind it. All surfaces, including the putative fracture surface, are identically covered by a dense creamy patina and are iron stained, features suggesting a prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment followed by incorporation in gravels. Thi…

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…

Copper alloy harness mount fragment. A cast semi-circular plate with the stubs of a probably rectangular loop projecting from its curving edge. The opposite edge is broken across a central member flanked by voids in an apparently openwork scheme; one strut remains to one side and its counterpart may be inferred on the other side. The curved edge of the plate bears an incised border to an interlaced anthropomorphic scheme which resembles the eyes and brows of a human mask. Each eye and brow is represented by paired and nested curls. Symetrical triangular arrangements of lines above the…

Copper alloy balance arm fragment, as kindly identified by Kevin Leahy, correcting an initial erroneous identification by this reporter. Cast rectangular plate with a U-shaped tab projecting from either long edge and with a circular loop at one end, in all cases with drilled apertures of diameter 2.4mm. The loop at the end of the plate has four incised lines beside it, in the manner of a collar, while a saltire with a horizontal line below it is incised on the central part of the plate where one of the side loops projects. This motif appears casually drawn, though not as casually as a…

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…

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy strap end. Narrow pointed strap end made from two sheets of thickness 0.5mm joined at the belt end by a rivet of diameter 1.6mm and length 3.3mm. It is uncertain how the pointed ends of the sheets were joined; perhaps by a spot of brazing. Though the form and construction is simple, it does not appear amongst numerous strap ends of medieval date reported from London, where comparable shapes were achieved by folding sheet metal. Kevin Leahy kindly notes similar strap ends to be common finds from 14th-century contexts at York. Suggested date: Medieval, 1300-1400. Length:…

County: Nottinghamshire
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…

Dark Grey Flint knife. Oval knife with abrupt hard hammer working from various directions covering both sides. There is a suggestion of battering along one edge of what may have been the dorsal aspect, to judge from the curved profile of the flake. Dr Kevin Leahy kindly suggests that the low angle retouch should suggest the identification of this object as a knife, rather than a scraper, which was the initial suggestion advanced by this reporter. Suggested date: Bronze Age, 2350-800 BC. Length: 53.1mm, Width: 33.0mm, Thickness: 13.1mm, Weight: 24.14gms.

Mottled grey Flint with cortex at edge Knife. Oval flake with long broad parallel flake removal scars on its dorsal side, and with broader scars on the ventral, the latter probably struck from the other end but in both cases with prominent rippling. Together these conferred a sharp cutting edge. Suggested date: Bronze Age, 2350-801. Length: 51.8mm, Width: 36.5mm, Thickness: 8.2mm, Weight: 17.63gms.

Copper alloy with Gilding Mount fragment. Cast flat backed plate in the form of the head of a bird with curving bill, probably one of a symetrically addorsed pair, as adduced by ragged broken edges behind the body. An eye is defined naturalistically in relief, as is a nostril at the top of the beak, but the neck and upper body afford fields for curvilinear interlaced ornament, each strand of which comprises paired ridges highlighted by deeply incised (or appearing thus) gutters between them. Dr Kevin Leahy kindly identifies this piece as of Salin Style 2, and as such an indication of …

Iron Plough Coulter, as kindly identified by Dr Kevin Leahy, intended to cut the sod which is then lifted by the plough share and, when it was introduced, turned by a mould board. Heavy wrought iron blade of V section of length 290mm, with an angled back towards its point and worn to a convergent point on its cutting edge, and with a thick and [now] rectangular tang of length 83mm; the junction between tang and blade is angled at forty-five degrees. The blade is at its broadest just before the convergence of the upper and lower edges begins. Dr Leahy notes the object resembles Anglo-S…

Copper alloy Unidentified Object. Cast fragment with a flat back. The reddish tint below an abraded surface patina is a feature of many objects of Anglo-Scandinavian date. Dr Kevin Leahy kindly comments that, rather than being a distressed artefact fragment, this may be a fragment of casting spillage.Suggested date: Unknown, 40-1800.

Copper alloy and iron early-medieval bridle fitting: a cheekpiece. Curving plate with a rectangular loop at the top and a possibly openwork arrangement of ten apertures, mostly sub-circular. Extensive ferrous corrosion suggests this was attached to an iron object. Degraded moulded decoration comprises possibly zoomorphic terminals at the ends of the plate, apparently with long tongues projecting from the gaping jaws of beasts; vertical groups of ribs, and a possibly devolved beast head or mask ornament below the loop. David Williams here kindly identifies a projecting animal head (a l…

Toffee coloured clouded and opaque flint. Knife. Narrow rod shaped blade. Four very long parallel flake removal scars on the dorsal aspect confer an angular plano-convex profile; very faint rippling on the ventral side shows where the flake was detached from a core. Some slight abrasions along the edge have been smoothed. Though the object has a glossy surface overall, possibly a result of curation in antiquity, the context could equally suggest this appealing finish to be the result of wave action. Kevin Leahy kindly comments as follows: 'An interesting object. Without retouch the…

Copper-alloy brooch with enamel and gilding. Circular, with an enamel design resembling a seven pointed star - or a six pointed star with a thick stalk - on its raised pedestal, which is of thickness 2.9mm, and detached from a separate back plate of thickness 1.2mm, which retains gilding, and which may have had a series of projecting lugs. Though the enamel was confined in cells, there is little visible of their walls. A central square cell contains brick red enamel. The star motif is of light blue enamel, and the field between the points of the star is dark blue. The rim of the back …

Copper alloy and Iron. Balance fragment. Central beam and one hinged arm from a tiny balance. The arm has a bulbous end, perhaps to permit tied attachment of a pan. A separate pin of diameter 1.5mm and length 3.8mm joins arm and beam. Ferrous corrosion at the centre of the beam suggests provision for the suspension of the set of scales. Dr Kevin Leahy kindly suggests this may be of Roman date, though no other material of that date was reported with it. Suggested date: Possibly Roman, 40-400. Length: 27.9mm, Width: 6.7mm, Thickness: 4.9mm, Weight: 2.12gms.

Copper alloy Pin. Cast slightly tapering pin of round section with a flat openwork head with engrailed edges and a balanced curvilinear composition, possibly abstracted from the popular motif of a hand grasping a fruit or pearl. On one side - the better preserved - a collar is provided at the base of the head by a horizontal series of tiny and closely spaced punched dots of diameter c.0.5mm; similar dots also form a border motif for the open parts of the head, probably on both sides. The shank is bent through 90 degrees at its mid point, a feature of hair pins sometimes thought to rel…

Lead Pump seal Weights, as kindly identified by Dr Kevin Leahy. Two cast plates (a and b). Each object is a plate with one rounded end and an opposed straight edge, formed like the heel of a boot. The objects have bevelled edges, which for a heel would be angled inward and forward. The 'upper' surfaces bear integrally cast waisted studs with rounded heads of diameter 22-25mm. The larger of these objects retains fragments of thick (circa 4mm) leather in the waist of the stud, which probably passed through a slightly smaller hole cut in the leather. The leather would be oiled to serve…

Copper alloy Mount. Cast rectangular plate with three rivet holes at one end; two occupied by rivets of diameter 1.8mm which are clenched over at the back of the plate; the central hole appears countersunk, of diameter 2mm, and perhaps was never used. The mid point of the plate is ridged, and its other end is also thickened with a gutter adjacent to this on the back. Decoration comprises incised triangles either side of the central ridge, filled with groups of two or three round or oval punchmarks.
