Complete early medieval decorated lead-alloy sword pommel of the 'cocked hat' type (c. 500 - 700 AD). The pommel has a shallow depression to the base which is partly filled with organic detriment due to the context of its deposition. The pommel is broadly triangular in shape with a rounded tip and two square faces at either end. The front, back and top faces are decorated with a pattern of a pair of twisting bands in relief. The pommel is in bad repair; one side has been bent out of place and a lower section of the pommel has been shorn off. A dark grey shiny patch at the top of the p…

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper-alloy Medieval annular brooch dating to the period c.AD 1200-1300. The brooch is broadly ovular in plan, with a rectangular cross-section. A zoomorphic head projects from the middle point of each long edge, and curves around to point inwards. It is likely that these represent snakes. The reverse is undecorated, although has a constriction at each apex to acommodate the pin, which is now missing. A green-brown patina is on the surface, as well as traces of gilding. The brooch measures 32.28mm in length, 23.07mm in width, 4.01mm in thickness and weighs 5.77g. Cf. Salisbur…

Object type: PERFORATED OBJECT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete stone perforated object, dating to from the Mesolithic to the Bronze Age (c.9,000-1,600 BC). The stone is broadly square in plan, but tapers slightly to a terminal with a worn break. A circular concave area is present on each side just before the break, resulting in the oval cross section narrowing at the centre. This suggests that the stone has been partially perforated. One indent has a dark brown patina on some areas. The other terminal is oval in cross section and also terminates in a worn break. Stuart Ogilvy (geologist) has looked at the stone and belives it is a s…

Object type: BADGE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete medieval badge in the form of an axehead, dating to the period c.AD 1300-1600. The axehead is an irregular triangle in plan, which narrows to a neck, and bifurcates to form a loop which would have accomodated the haft. This loop is now broken at its apex with a worn break. Decoration comprises a grid pattern on both the front and reverse of the blade. The wings of the axehead are now missing. A light grey patina is on the surface. Lead axeheads were a common form of secular badge in the late 13th to 16th centuries. They were perhaps worn by spectators at tournaments and …

An incomplete copper-alloy Early Medieval strap slide, dating to the period c.AD 850-1000. The strap slide is oval in plan, with wear to the edges where pieces are missing. A central raised ridge runs from the apex to lower edge. This is flanked by ring and dot decoration arranged in an irregular pattern. A incised groove can just be discerned circumnavigating the perimeter. The reverse has a broken projection at the lower and upper apex, and these two projections would have joined to form an integral loop. The reverse is undecorated. A brown patina with patches of light green is on t…

An incomplete probable silver-gilt Thealby brooch of Roman date. The head of the brooch is comprised of rectangular wings the reverse of which act as a double lug hinge mechanism for the pin. The pin no longer remains and patches of copper corrosion mark the remains of the axis bar within the lugs. An integral circular attachment loop projects from a rectangular bar set centrally on the upper edge of the head. The bar is decorated with parallel though unevenly spaced vertical grooves and the loop has moulded decoration to the front face. The front to the wings have concaved central se…

Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete knapped lithic implement of Neolithic date (circa 4000-2350BC). The implement is most likely a knife, although could be a small Neolithic hand-axe shaped implement known as an 'Ovate' dating to the Late Neolithic (3000-2350BC). However, the implement is not bifacially worked to the extent expected of an Ovate. The implement appears to have been knapped from a primary flake, from which secondary and tertiary flakes have been removed from the ventral surface. The Dorsal face has been worked to remove cortex on the left medial edge, leaving a substantial amount on the right…

A complete copper alloy mount of Early-Medieval date. The mount is triquetra in form with a flat, rectangular profile. The upper surface is decorated with an intricate carved interlace design which retains gilding. The exact nature of the decoration is difficult to determine due to wear though an intertwining rope work-style border appears to be present around each loop and into the centre panel. The reverse is flat and undecorated. The metal has a mid-greenish patina and is worn. The object is 21.8mm long, 20mm wide, 1.8mm thick and weighs 2.5g. Dr Kevin Leahy, National Finds A…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete knapped lithic axehead of Neolithic date (c.4000 BC - 2200 BC). The axehead is broken and may have been reused as a scraper. When complete the object would have been ovate in both plan and section though around half of the axehead is now missing due to a transverse break. The axehead has been bifacially flaked using covering scaled low angle flaking. Short scaled semi-abrupt retouch is visible along the distal edge suggesting the object may have been repurposed as a scraper after breaking. The flint is an off-white patchy colour. The implement is 56.6mm long, 53mm wid…
