  • Thumbnail image of YORYM-A11D90

Record ID: YORYM-A11D90
Object type: STUD
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete iron stud of uncertain date, possibly medieval c.AD 1000 - 1500. The head of the stud is sub-square with rounded corners and a D-shaped section. A square sectioned shank projects centrally from the base of the head, tapering to a curved blunted end. The curve of the terminal results in a roughly J-shaped object. The metal has a mid-brown/orange patina and is heavily corroded. The head of the stud is 56.4mm x 51.7mm and 18.1mm thick. The shank is 17.8mm x 16.2mm tapering to 8.5mm x 5.4mm. The object weighs 201g. Dr Kevin Leahy comments that such studs are commonly described…

Record ID: LIN-600BED
Object type: BARREL PADLOCK
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete medieval iron barrel padlock. The fragment includes the circular 'cap' end and part of the internal mechanism. The cylindrical outer casing and locking arm are now missing. The remaining internal spring mechanism comprises three rectangular slots or arms; two are set parallel to one another, while the third appears to be set at a right angle to the other two. The three arms extend beyond the circular cap and curve to form a loop of three arms. Examples illustrated in Egan (1998:92-93) dates these to the 13th to 15th centuries AD. For a similar example see PAS reference …

  • Thumbnail image of NLM-47D992

Record ID: NLM-47D992
Object type: SCYTHE
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron possible scythe fragment. The curved tip from a broad straight wrought iron blade of V section. The size and form are both similar to that of an Anglo-Saxon or Anglo-Scandinavian scythe blade reported by David Haldenby from Cottam, East Riding of Yorkshire. The early scythe had a short wide straight blade rather than the long curved version familiar from medieval and later pictorial sources. The mass of this fragment suggests the good survival of metal, perhaps - if the suggested identification is accepted - arising from its high quality to begin with. Suggested date: Early Mediev…

  • Thumbnail image of PUBLIC-460BBF

Record ID: PUBLIC-460BBF
Object type: HARNESS FITTING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A wrought iron swivel loop with part of its circumference flattened and broadened to form an oval expansion with a central, circular aperture of diameter 8mm. The inner part of the hole is bevelled, and it has a rim on its outer edge. The upper part of the loop is much thinner through wear where a strap or chain was attached during its working life. The object would function as a swivel and use with harness, agricultural equipment, or as part of a hooked swivel for a cooking pot (see PUBLIC-C87BB1) seems likely given the context of the find spot. Suggested date medieval to post-medieva…

Object type: DRAWKNIFE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron probable drawknife fragment. A wrought iron fragment from a heavy scale tanged tool, very similar to NLM-50FDF2, found nearby, and to which it may join, except in that it lacks the V-section blade noted on that object. A round- ended and slightly expanded tang gives way at a constriction to a bar-like 'blade', though this lacks the V-section of a knife. The forms are very similar and the condition of each is identical. A double-handled form would suggest a tool such as a drawknife or spokeshave. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1800. Length: 113mm, Width: 26.7mm, Thickness: 6.…

Record ID: NLM-50FDF2
Object type: DRAWKNIFE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron drawknife fragment. A fragment of a heavy V-section blade which narrows to form what is here interpreted as a scale tang with a rounded and slightly expanded end. About 56mm of the blade and all the tang survive, with a bend perhaps caused by post-depositional damage at the proximal end of the tang. The scale tanged form, expanded handle and the good preservation of the iron, albeit encrusted externally, both suggest a relatively recent date. Another object of similar form was reported from nearby, NLM-512614, though lacking the V-section of the blade noted here. Both are probably…

An Early Anglo-Saxon iron spear, dating circa 550-650. The spear has a lozenge shaped tapering blade with an incomplete conical shaft. The shaft is not fully rounded. The blade expands diagonally outwards from the socket to form the widest point of the blade. The blade then appears to taper inwards again, giving the blade an overal diamond shape. The top half of the blade is missing. The spear measures 160mm in length. The blade measures 28mm in width at the widest point. The socket measures 13mm in diameter at the break. An attempt was made to classify and date this weapon using the…

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An Early Anglo-Saxon iron spear, dating circa 550-650. The spear has a flat tapering blade with an incomplete conical shaft. The shaft is not fully rounded. The blade is of maximum width close to the socket. The spear measures 298mm in length. The blade measures 242mm in length and 38mm in width at the widest point. The socket measures 12mm in diameter at the break. An attempt was made to classify and date this weapon using the system defined in Bayliss and Hines (2013, 163-170) which uses ratios between spearhead's various elements. These allowed the spearhead the spearhead to be te…

County: Lincolnshire

Iron pin, possibly with a head of another material. A probably drawn wire shank with a globular head, no collar, and an expanded [?by corrosion] part of the shank near the broken tip. The unusually good condition of the head might suggest this is some non-ferrous material, though the shank is in good condition. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-850.
