A copper alloy unidentified object, possibly dating to the Medieval period. The object comprises a broadly rectangular body, with a rectangular cross section, with three internally cast projections extending sideways from one edge. The centrally placed projection is triangular in plan, while those situated at each terminal are semi-circular in plan with a circular perforation possibly for attachment. One of these projections and perforations is now incomplete. Above these larger circular perforations situated in the body of the object are two smaller circular perforations. On the o…

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…

A copper alloy and iron Viking strap fitting of Early Medieval date. The object is sub-triangular in plan, expanding at either end and waisted in the centre. The wider expanded end is square in cross-section and has an iron core from which projects the remains of a possible circular rivet for attachment. From the solid square end the object narrows and thins towards the opposite end which is split. The split measures 10mm in length, and is held together by a copper alloy circular rivet at the terminal with a diameter of 3mm. Each face of the object is decorated with six transverse …

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…

An incomplete early early-Medieval (450-700) copper-alloy cheekpiece from a cheek-bar bridle bit, consisting of a central loop and one extending arm (the other arm, diametrically opposed, is missing due to an old break and now consists of a small stump). The central loop is oval in shape (32.0x27.7x7.8mm) and with significant wear to the irregular central perforation (max.18.1x17.2mm), presumably originally circular in shape but now with four distinct areas of wear, most exaggerated to one edge (between the two arm extensions) where it has a curved profile. These wear marks reflect t…

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 almost complete copper alloy brooch of Early Medieval date, late 8th-9th century. The brooch is circular in plan and flat with zoomorphic and openwork decoration. The brooch is decorated with a central 'kite-shaped' cross, the terminals of which are rounded, expanding out over the edge of the circumference of the plate. Each rounded terminal contains a circular groove within which is an undecorated area containing a circular rivet hole. Three of the outer incomplete rivets remain in the holes along with a central rivet while one is missing. It is likely that these rivets when co…

An incomplete, possibly cut, cast copper alloy object of uncertain use and date, but potentially either later Early-medieval or a post-medieval revival piece. The object is flat but is curved like a horn with a squared terminal 16.7mm wide, while the thinner end is 7.4mm wide. This end is broken. There is a sprue of metal bent up and curved from one edge, which does not appear to have any decorative features and seems to be another element of the object. Both faces of the 'horn' are intricately decorated with scolled leaves and vines with a beast at the wider terminal; each beast 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…

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL

Workflow stage: Published Find published
An early medieval cast copper alloy pressblech die, probably dating from the 7th/8th century AD. The die is complete and in fair condition. While both the rim and the reverse are smooth and in very good condition, the obverse surface is rough and very worn. The decoration, however, is still visible. The decoration appears to be random and not wholly geometric, probably Irish in origin: it is composed of a complicated pattern of swirls, triskeles and waves in interlace style. The only symmetrical part of the pattern is the centre which depicts two three-armed pattern set on top of each…

Head of a copper alloy 8th century Anglo-Saxon pin, probably part of a triple, or double, pin set. The head and part of the shank survive in very good condition with hardly any corrosion or bronze disease present on the surface, except in the centre of the obverse where corrosion started in the crevices of the decoration. It was made from cast copper alloy, probably with part-incised decoration on the obverse. The silvery shine on the reverse strongly suggests that the pin had been silvered or tinned. There is a small hole in the side of the head, possibly to link the pin to the centr…

An Early Medieval copper-alloy Cross Brooch. The brooch was original cross-shaped, but two of the arms are now incomplete. Each arm is sub-rectangular in plan, being slightly wider at the terminal than at the centre of the cross. The perimeter is decorated by a single linear groove. One arm contains three irregularly places diagonal grooves or 'dashes'. The other arm only contains two. In the centre of the brooch are four ringed dot motifs. These are roughly arranged one at the beginning of each arm, but they are somewhat crudely done. An integral loop is located behind one of the arm…
