Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead spindle whorl. A cast whorl of plano-convex section with a central moulded aperture of diameter 6.9mm, cf. Walton Rogers form A1; patinated. Traces of equidistantly spaced radial ribs appear on the convex surface, along with a single neatly incised line. The mass may suggest a primary function spinning a yarn, while the small aperture size may point to an Anglo-Saxon date. Against this, the appearance of radial decoration is a feature more usually associated with larger biconical whorls of the early post-medieval period, and those 'one sided' versions cast from them as copies. Sug…

Lead possible spindle whorl. Cast annular or tubular cylindrical object with a central moulded aperture of diameter [now] c.13mm. Shrinkage lines indicate this was cast in an open mould. Patinated, and indented by a distorting impact. If a whorl, this might be an example of Walton Rogers form B. Suggested date: possibly Early Medieval, 950-1100. Diameter (as found): 22.2mm, Height: 18.6mm, Weight: 37.23gms

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy and lead object, kindly identified by Alex Bliss as a stirrup side terminal of 11th century date and probable Anglo-Scandinavian attribution. A small concavo-convex cast object of copper alloy, forming half a tube of wall thickness c.1.1mm, with a dense white filling in its concave side. Viewed in profile, the convex side is gently humped at one end, with a pair of angled ridges meeting between the hump and a rounded end. Abraded. The appearance is of a simple zoomorphic scheme, with the ridges representing eyes or brows, which might point to a Viking-Age date. Suggested d…

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead possible weight. A thin flat-sided oval-ended billet with knife-cut edges; patinated. The mass may suggest this to represent eight units of 4.07gmns, as used in Viking Age Scandinavia for transactions in silver bullion. Numerous plain lead weights thought to respect this or allied systems have been reported, and their Early Medieval date has been advanced by Dave Haldenby and Jane Kershaw with reference to a large assemblage from Cottam, East Riding of Yorkshire. There, such weights were either rectangular or discoid, so this form combines these formal characteristics in an object…

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead possible weight. Cast rectangular block with cut ends, and with tiny pits over its largest opposed flat surfaces. Lightly patinated. Marks of this character are sometimes ascribed to chewing by vermin or children, but in this case they do not appear anywhere except on opposed sides, and so may be formed deliberately, perhaps with the point of a knife. The mass equates to one ora/ore, the slightly underweight Viking-Age equivalent to the ounce, and in this case may comprise six (slightly underweight) units of 4.07gms, which were used for bullion transactions in the Viking 'kingdom'…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast whorl of plano-convex form with a central moulded aperture of diameter 10.2mm, Walton Rogers form A1. Shrinkage lines in the upper surface as cast suggest the object was made in an open mould. Patinated, and distorted by subsequent impact. The ample hole may point to an Anglo-Scandinavian date while the mass suggests a primary function plying cord. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diameter: 29.3mm, Thickness: 12.9mm, Weight: 68.52gms

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy possible strap end. Cast elongated plate of plano-concavo section, broken at one or possibly both ends. Either closely-spaced transverse grooves or chatter marks appear along the ridge of the display face towards one end. This might be the remnant of a simple strap end of Thomas Class A, or a similar object of later date, as might be expected to bear either simpler or devolved decoration, albeit almost entirely lost to wear. This interpretation presupposes the loss of the means of attachment as well as, possibly, a decorated terminal. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-11…

Copper alloy and iron brooch. Cast small long brooch of cross potent form retaining the corroded remnant of an iron pin at a lug behind its head. The three arms of a cruciform head are all indented with a curved hollow in their sides. A curved concavo-convex bow with central aris and a flat triangular zone at the top of its projection is lightly hollowed behind. The bow tapers gently towards a narrower foot with a slightly raised rectangular panel above its [present] straight end. The stub of a catch plate appears behind the foot. Worn, perhaps polished by use. The good condition and r…

County: Lincolnshire

Copper alloy probable strap end. A small cast plate with a spilt end, and with slightly flared sides; the other end is lost. Indistinct traces of moulded ornament on one side may suggest this to be a small zoomorphic strap end which has lost its beast head terminal; if so, of Thomas Class A. There is, however, no evidence for the attachment of the strap. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-850. Length: 28.2mm, Width: 6.6mm, Thickness (at midpoint): 1.4mm, Weight: 1.53gms

Copper alloy buckle. Cast D-shaped buckle with a thickened rounded and expanded outer edge, bevelled behind, and with devolved beast head terminals gripping the ends of a narrowed strap bar. A pair of broad shallow grooves appear centrally on the outer edge, probably serving as a pin rest. Abraded. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 1000-1100.

Copper alloy probable brooch fragment. Cast fragment from the head of a cruciform brooch comprising a half-round knob with deep basal collar springing from the centre of a flat plate with a lug on the back. Fiercely abraded.

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy possible ingot. A cast teardrop-shaped object of plano-convex section with five or more longitudinal flattened facets. The mass is close to one ora/ore, a Scandinavian equivalent to an underweight ounce, or six of its sub-units of 4.07gms. The latter are from one of two Viking Age systems apparently used in parallel for the weighing of silver bullion. Ingots of precious metal resembling this object in their form are frequently ascribed to this period. However, small ingot moulds sometimes retain the traces of use with other non-ferrous metals (e.g. Foreman, M. no. 87, page…

Lead net-sinker. A tubular weight made by the rolling of a rectangle of cast lead sheet of thickness 1.5mm, either around a former or around the selvedge of a net, secured by a butted join of its edges. The aperture has a diameter of 5mm. Patinated. Weights of this form have long been used to weight fishing tackle. A large collection was discovered in a late medieval boat near Blackfriars Bridge. London. However, the only stratified parallels from North Lincolnshire are earlier, coming from Middle Saxon contexts at Flixborough. These were equipped with either overlapping or butted seam…

Lead possible spindle whorl. A small cast conical whorl with off-centre moulded aperture of diameter 7.7mm, cf. Walton Rogers form A2. Patinated, and lightly squashed.

Bone possible skate fragment. A large mammal long bone, probably cannon bone of horse, with a hole of diameter 11.7mm drilled from the posterior aspect immediately below the facets of the articular surface so as to meet the natural longitudinal cavity in the middle of the bone, and breaking out at the other side. Butchery marks appear as angled cuts close to the end of the bone. The facets of the articular surface are abraded, and some bone has been lost around the drilled hole. Angled chopping has trimmed the posterior surface with at least two hefty blows, resulting in or contributin…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast cylindrical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 13mm, Walton Rogers form B. Shrinkage lines around the hole on one side suggest manufacture in an open mould. A pair of nicks at the edge of the hole on one side, and a single corresponding nick on the other, may signal the conversion of whorl to a line weight equipped with tying grooves.
