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…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 6.7mm, Walton Rogers form A1. Patinated. Shrinkage lines on the upper flat surface as made indicates the object was cast in an open mould. The small spindle size may admit a Middle Saxon date while the mass would permit a primary use spinning a fine yarn. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-850. Diameter: 21.0mm, Thickness: 9.1mm, Weight: 16.91gms

Lead probable spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a moulded central aperture of diameter 7mm, Walton Rogers form A1. Patinated. The small spindle size could admit a Middle Saxon date while the mass would suggest a primary use spinning a fine yarn. The glossing of the surface is especially characteristic of an object which has been in contact with textiles, though it is a characteristic more usually remarked on textile-working tools of bone or antler. If not a whorl - the object is unusually small - possibly a fishing line weight. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-850. Diamet…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast flat-sided discoid whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter c.10mm, Walton Rogers form B. The lower side as cast is particularly rough in its texture. Patinated. The ample spindle hole may suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian date. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 950-1100. Diameter: 30.6mm, Thickness: 6.2mm, Weight: 31.20gms

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead weight. Cast flat-sided discoid weight with a probably moulded bevelled edge; patinated. This may represent eight (slightly overweight) units of 4.43 gms or nine units of 4.07gms, as used by contemporary Viking-Age systems for the weighing of silver bullion. The match is less precise in the former case, though multiple values were probably more usually reckoned in even numbers of units, though the latter could also equate to one and a half ora/ore, a similarly contemporary version of an underweight ounce. The Early Medieval status of such plain weights was advanced in the light of…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast thin cylindrical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 11mm, Walton Rogers form B. Patinated. The ample spindle size may suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian date while the mass would commend a primary function plying cord. Shrinkage on one face suggests the object was cast in an open mould.

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy bridle fitting, as kindly identified by the finder. Cast D-section bar with a rhomboid loop at one end, a rounded oval loop at the other, and a bulbous collar immediately adjacent to the latter. The rhomboid loop has flattened D-shaped knops at its angles, while the oval loop is markedly thinned by internal wear. The back of the casting is lightly hollowed behind the bulbous collar, possibly indicating that this object was cast in an open mould. Suggested date: Late Medieval, 1000-1100. Length: 59.8mm, Width: 23.5mm, Thickness: 9.1mm, Weight: 23.41gms

Silver possible stylus fragment. A cast rectangular stem broken at one end and with an expanded and slightly rounded collar separating it from a wedge-shaped flattened blade, now mostly lost, with its remainder worn to a single point, at the other. If this identification were to be sustained, its implication could be more important than its presently unprepossessing appearance might suggest. Along with two mounts interpreted as possible book fittings, this could evidence a literate or monastic component to early medieval occupation in the vicinity. The square section is a feature of so…

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy unidentified object. A sub-rectangular flat-sided billet of abraded copper alloy, probably cast. One side bears three or more small [length 1.4mm] stamps at one end, which was a decorative technique especially favoured for copper alloy objects of the early Anglo-Saxon period. Much material of this period is reported from the same general location. Candidates for the original object whence this comes might include a broad band annular brooch, which excavation shows to be a prolific class of dress accessory from 5th and 6th-century cemeteries. These remain perplexingly rare …

Copper alloy possible girdle hanger fragment. A cast strip wuith straight sides, slightly expanded at one end where a hole of diameter 3.7mm is drilled as if for suspension of the object. Broken at the other end. The display side bears neatly incised linear borders and a ring of annular stamps of diameter 1.2mm, of which about 27 appear, with only two slightly superimposed. Bent. If the identification offered is sustained, this would imply a 6th-century date, as girdle hangers were part of the 'object kit' deemed suitable for the burial costume of an adult Anglian woman in her 'nationa…

Copper alloy probable strap end. A cast rod which expands in width and diminishes in its thickness [c.1mm] towards a sub-triangular end, the expansion beginning approximately at its midpoint. A drilled hole of diameter c.1.5mm appears centrally on the spatulate end, and was perhaps to attach the object to a narrow strap. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 600-700.

Copper alloy tweezers fragment. A pair of tweezers with one arm mostly lost. What remains comprises a narrow and thicker handle and a sharply expanded sub-triangular blade with the battered remnant of a crimped edge. The handle bears very closely spaced horizontally incised lines which combine decorative effect with enhanced grip. This appeared on both arms but gives out at the loop formed by the sharp folding of the object, and a little above the remaining blade. The blade is sharply bent out of alignment. Tweezers are a common component of furnished inhumation and cremation burials o…

Copper alloy tweezers fragment. One arm from a pair of tweezers, with a narrow straight-sided shaft, gently expanded and thinned [to thickness 0.7mm] towards a spatulate end, where the blade is neatly crimped. The object is broken across the returning curve of a sharply bent top loop. Closely spaced horizontally incised or moulded lines on the narrower part afford grip in addition to their decorative effect.

Copper alloy strap end. A straight-sided strip with a rounded point at one end, straight at the other. The latter bears a round drilled hole of diameter 2.7mm, presumably to attach the plate to a strap and possibly to another metal component. Decoration comprises two neatly incised pairs of lines to either side of the fixing hole, and the object is polished by wear. Bent. The study of the sizes of buckles from Anglo-Saxon graves (e.g. Drinkall, in Drinkall and Foreman 1998, page 272) suggests increasing currency of narrow straps to be a feature of the 7th century. Suggested date: Earl…

Copper alloy tweezers. A thick strip which was narrow at its mid-part and expanded towards its ends, where the metal is thinner, folded to form a pair of tweezers. The end of each arm is crimped. The display side of each arm bears stamped ring and dot of diameter 2.4mm, with five on one side and at least three - possibly more - on the other, haphazardly arranged. The object is complete, retaining its tensile strength, though bent, presumably adventitious post-depositional damage. Tweezers are a common component of furnished inhumation and cremation burials of the early Anglo-Saxon peri…

Copper alloy tweezers. A neatly cut straight-sided strip, folded and crimped to form a suspension loop, and with arms of slightly expanded width at their ends. The loop bears six ridges with grooves between them. Each arm bears three groups of neatly incised horizontal paired lines on its upper extent. The object is complete, though now bent due to adventitious damage. Tweezers are a common component of furnished inhumation and cremation burials of the early Anglo-Saxon period, though the form of loop recalls that appearing on pendants dated to the 7th century.
