Description: An irregular sub-rectangular fragment of 'hack' gold, cut on its upper and lower edges, curving slightly in plan and demonstrating some faceting to its upper face. Date: c. 1500 BC-1800 AD Dimensions: The fragment measures 10.82mm down its longest axis, 8.61mm wide by 1.27mm thick at its midpoint, and weighs 1.05g. Discussion: A number of similar gold fragments have been recorded on the PAS database via the Treasure Act, including LANCUM-681051 and SWYOR-784244. Though this piece was found in an area of high Early-Medieval (Early/Middle Anglo-Saxon) activity, it canno…

Treasure reference 2017 T1054: a pellet of molten gold. The pellet is an irregular oval sphere. One side is smooth and rounded, while the other is more irregular. This may suggest that the gold had been poured into a pellet mould, such as those known for the production of coins in the late Iron Age. The weight of the globule is 5.4g, which equates to the mass of a typical late Iron Age gold stater. Discussion This gold pellet may be indicative of an industrial process having taken place in the vicinity, such as the melting down of gold coins into pellets ready for the striking …

A gold ingot of uncertain date, probably Bronze Age - Medieval, 2000 BC- AD 1100. The object is a sub-cylindrical bar of unshaped gold, tapering slightly in width. One terminal has a rounded 'break' while the other is simply a rounded off point. The gold has some pitting on the outside surface but otherwise no identifiable markings to indicate its age. Dimensions: Length: 44.39 mm Width: 8.48 mm Thickness: 7.63 mm Weight: 22.15 g Discussion: The dating of gold ingots is difficult. There is a complete example with similar faceting DENO-938F3D, that was put through the Treasure process…

A pellet or ingot of gold weighing 1.27g. The rounded pellet itself is not diagnostic as to date and thus was not submitted as potential Treasure. A similar pellet, found nearby, was recorded as SUR-6020EC . An Iron Age date is possible in view of finds of coins of this date from the general area.

Treasure Case : 2017 T771 Description: A small, possibly complete gold-alloy ingot of uncertain date. The ingot is a flattened irregular semi-oval, sub-rectangular in cross-section. It is possible that the piece was hammered to flatten it out. The surfaces are plain though some scratches are present. No obvious nick marks or cutting can be seen on any surface and the form of the ingot is not diagnostic to any particular period. Dimensions: Length: 15.3mm; Width: 10.9mm; Thickness: 3.3mm; Weight: 5.37g. Conclusion: Due to the undiagnostic nature of the find, it canno…

A fragment of an ingot of light brown/yellow gold. The fragment has a rounded rectangular section and bears many hammering facets, mainly on the slightly convex upper face. There are a number of facetted hollows, particularly on the lower, concave surface, perhaps from its being held in a vice. Both broken ends are left rough. Such objects are difficult to date. And wide date range of Iron Age to early medieval seems reasonable.

Treasure Case 2005 T392 Date: Late 9th-11th century Description: A gold ingot of short, sub-rectangular section, the top and bottom faces hammered flat and there are also hammer marks on the sides. It would have been cast in a simple open mould either roughly cut in stone, or perhaps drawn in the earth with a stick. Discussion: Viking period gold ingots are more unusual than silver. A large number of silver ingots of the Viking period have been found mainly in hoards in England, Ireland and the Netherlands, as well as in Scandinavia. Silver ingots from the region of the Danel…

A fragment of an unidentified gold object from an unknown date. The fragment is a bar or rod, with a rectangular cross section. Both ends flare out slightly, and look to have been cut. One edge of the bar has a triangular notch in it. The fragment is a yellow gold colour. It measures 19.0mm in length, 4.4mm in width, 2.9mm in thickness, and weighs 2.58g. A similar object can be seen in the 2003 Treasure Report, page 145, number 335, which is listed as undiagnostic. There is no evidence to indicate the age or use of the fragment. A similar object on the database is DENO-16AD1C

A fragment of a possible gold ingot weighing 3.56g. The ingot, which is a dull yellow-brown, has an L-shaped section and the surviving original edge of the object is stepped in three ledges. The broken edges are very ragged. Multiple parallel lines on the hollow side may suggest a more recent date.

Treasure reference no. 2016 T980: a gold ingot. The ingot is sub-rectangular in plan, and has been snipped at both ends. The underside is smooth and flat, while the upper side is slightly domed, being made of a series of flat, rectangular panels or hammer marks. This item was found in cultivated land within a concentration of objects dating to the early Anglo-Saxon period. A smaller number of Middle Saxon artefacts and coins were also found within this concentration. A possible date of circa 500-850 is therefore given for this ingot.

Treasure reference 2018 T380: gold ingot. A thin [c.0.8mm] strip of beaten gold, neatly folded four times to produce a small rectangular billet. The beating of precious metal into ingot forms is particularly associated with the Vikings, and in the context of the Torksey area, with an attested encampment and numerous associated finds, an ascription to that period seems credible. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1050. Length: 10.8mm, Width: 7.4mm, Thickness: 3.2mm, Weight: 1.00gms

Dimensions: Length: 7.89mm Thickness: 1.05mm Width: 5.19 mm Weight: 0.33g Discussion: According to specialists at the British Museum this fragment is not diagnostic and not certainly prehistoric. Conclusion: Due to the undiagnostic nature of the find it cannot be securely dated to pre-1718 and as such falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996.

A possible Early Medieval (Viking) gold ingot/hack gold, dated to the mid 9th to mid 11th Centuries, AD850-1050. The ingot is roughly sub-rectangular in shape with one end rounded and the other, flat. There is a flattened facet on the upper and lower edges towards the flat end. Along one side edge there are approximately 7 small, irregular, pointed spurs. The surface is mostly smooth but there are areas that are rough (bubbled appearance) and irregular.

A short section of a flat, rectangular-sectioned gold ingot, trapezoidal in plan. Shows clear evidence of having been chiselled at both of the narrow ends. This object bears some similarity to small flat ingots used in the Viking period, and often broken up for the purposes of trade. However, the form is undiagnostic, and it could also date to an earlier or later period.

A fragment of a gold ingot. One end is rounded and worn, and the other shows signs of a clear break. There are no diagnostic features which might provide an indication of its likely age. It was shown to curators of the Roman and Early Medieval collections at the British Museum, which cover the dates that most ingots reported under the Treasure Act are thought to be from, but both agreed that although the ingot appeared to be fairly old, it was undateable.

A complete, rounded droplet of gold or gold alloy, probably casting waste. The droplet is relatively smooth, with a porous, unworked surface. It measures 8.6mm long, 7.6mm wide and 5.4mm thick, and weighs 3.3g. Conclusion: An Iron Age date is possible for this object, since five Iron Age gold coins, all quarter staters and mostly from the mid-first century BC, have been found in surrounding fields (SUR-4EF070, SUR-95F112, SUR-F84295, SUR-960B33, SUR-BC0D8C). However, the undiagnostic nature of the pellet itself means that it cannot be securely dated as over 300 years old. As such, al…
