Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A gold early medieval finger ring of the Viking period (c. 1000-1100). The ring is made of a curved rod with a rectangular cross-section and bevelled edges. The rod is wider (c. 4 mm) at the centre and tapers to the back where the ends are drawn into wires (2 mm in diameter) which overlap and are wound once round each other. Overall, the ring has an external diameter of 24 mm and an internal diameter of 17 mm. It weighs 8.56 g. The ring is similar in style to a Viking finger ring from Weston Colville, Cambridgeshire (CAM-A32F23; 2008 T141). The report for that ring says: "The ring may…

A cast copper alloy zoomorphic terminal in the form of a beasts head. It is comprised of a circular-section tapering socket that terminates in a stylised beasts head. The head is elongated and consists of a flat base with cheeks and jowls tapering in a wedge shape towards a slightly upturned snout and down-turned mouth and lower lip. The curved back to the side of the head, lower jaw and snout are delineated on both sides by a smoothly curved raised border.

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead possible weight. Cast plano-convex object with a small dimple on its convex side. Patinated. The mass may suggest this to have represented one half of an ore/ora or three Viking Age units of 4.07gms. A conical ribbed playing piece or weight of similar mass (NLM-C98990) was reported as from the same general location, and indeed this object might qualify as one of the plainer pieces used in the game of Hnafetafl. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-950 Diameter: 16.5mm, Thickness: 8.3mm, Weight: 12.62gms

Object type: GAMING PIECE
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead possible playing piece. Cast conical to pentagonal-section flat-based object with five moulded ribs converging at its apex. The ribs may have distinguished this from plainer pieces used in the board game Hnafetafl, perhaps as a 'king'. Its mass also equates to one half ore/ora, or three Viking -Age units as used for transactions in silver bullion, most closely matching that system employed in Scandinavia based on a module of 4.07gms. The object could have served as both weight and game piece, especially if such games were to be played for silver stakes. A slightly heavier version …

A small lightly concavo-convex plate, of probably originally discoid form, with a moulded design comprising a plain cross whose arms are rendered by quadruple strands, with a large central pellet and with a pellet and ring in each of its angles. Further smaller pellets and curls also appear between these major elements. A small stub on one side of the back may represent pin gear, otherwise lost. Patinated.

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy unidentified object. A cast knob of either spherical or hemispherical form - the uncertainty arising from surface damage, separated from a short [6.5mm] tapered shank by a moulding which remains of strongly defined double collared form on its outer side. The shank has a semi-circular section with a ridge along its flat or inner side, a provision which appears intended to secure the object when it was inserted into another. The surface is bubbled, probably by intense heat. These features could be consistent with this being a detached half-round knob from the head of an Earl…

An Early Medieval copper alloy Stirrup strap mount, of Williams' (1997) Class A type 8, probably dating to c. AD 1000-1100. The mount consists of a sub-triangular plate, cast in low relief, with an elongated zoomorphic terminal at the apex, viewed from above and looking up, with long lentoid ears. This surmounts two further animals, their backs forming the lateral edges of the mount, their hind legs extending backwards, converging behind the zoomorphic terminal. The heads of these latter animals project downwards from either side of the base. A right angled flange projects from the rev…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a moulded central aperture of diameter 9mm; patinated and possibly polished by wear, Walton Rogers form A1.

Lead possible weight. Cast and possibly originally discoid weight, either flattened or trimmed to a hexagonal form. Patinated. The mass may suggest this to have represented three Viking-Age units of 4.07gms as used for silver bullion transactions, or one half of an ora/ore, the contemporary equivalent of an [underweight] ounce. Qualifying this suggestion, it should be acknowledged that examples of values of odd numbers of units are fairly rare in what was effectively a duodecimal system.

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. A small U-shaped billet of sheet metal with two small projecting semi-circular 'ears' at its upper edge which are folded back against the plate. Traces of gilding appear around a triangular hump situated between the folded flaps. A stippled surface also lies between the 'ears' and between the hump and the edge of the object. . This might be finely punched, or even an imprint from textile. The latter could point to a use as a strap end, whereby the 'ears' clenched a fabric strap. The finder kindly suggests an Anglo-Saxon date; if this were sust…
