Object type: STRAP END
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy strap end. Cast rectangular plate with a weighted outer edge bearing a line of three spheres, and engrailed at the other end where a low rounded and thickened bar appears on one side only, cf. Thomas Class E. A pair of stout rivets [of diameter 2.2mm and length 6.7mm] pass through the centre of the plate, both ends of each rivet are lightly burred. A drilled hole of diameter 2.8mm, lightly countersunk, lies a little closer to the inner end. The construction indicates that the strap was split at its end, secured by the rivets and probably also by a fixing passing through th…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 7.7mm, Walton Rogers form A1.

Object type: RING
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy ring. A cast suspension loop, comprising a slightly tapered D-section bar which is bent back on itself near its midpoint, with its ends touching to close the loop. The broader end is slightly flattened with short side lugs which confer an irregular cruciform appearance. Class parallels occur at Middle Saxon Flixborough (Evans and Loveluck 2009, fig.1:10), though construction styles to achieve the same result probably varied. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-800. Length: 20.4mm, Width: 13.9mm, Thickness: 2.8mm, Weight: 2.51gms

Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy probable strap fitting fragment. Cast sub-rectangular plate with a straight-sided lug at one end. A neatly incised border around the straight edges of the plate has a series of thirteen annular stamps interrupting its course as a subsequent stage of its decoration, somewhat haphazardly spaced on the upper and lower edges and more symmetrically for the ends. A drilled hole of diameter 3.8mm may be for the setting of a domed rivet. The display face retains gilding traces. The general appearance resembles that of a buckle plate, though there is no slot for the pin where it mi…

Object type: DIE STAMP
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy die stamp. Cast rectangular plate with rounded edges and with deeply incised detail on one flat side. A doubled groove forms the frame for angular interlaced figures of Salin Style 1. The central components of the motif bear transverse grooves suggesting a vermiform or possibly billeted texture, while some straight members ancillary to these and outside them, but confined within the frame, have a feathered surface texture. The finder suggests this to be a Pressblacht die for the manufacture of impressed sheets of gold foil. This object would imply a nearby workshop or craf…

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
: Lead weight. Cast discoid weight, made in an open mould as evidenced by shrinkage lines on its upper surface, as cast. Patinated. A small blob of metal is attached to the upper edge; this may be a deliberate addition to compensate for flawed casting of the base. The mass may suggest this to represent precisely 14 units of 4.07gms, as were used for Viking Age transactions in silver bullion. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diameter: 25.5mm, Thickness: 12.6mm, Weight: 57.35gms.

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 9.5mm, Walton Rogers form A1. Patinated. The mass may suggest a primary function spinning a fine yarn; the ample spindle size may suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian date. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000.

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 10mm, Walton Rogers form A1. The whorl is slightly distorted, apparently by a knife blade passed through the hole, which has deeply nicked the side of the aperture it on one side, and lightly on the other. Patinated. The spindle size may suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian date. The damage might signal the conversion of whorl to line weight by furnishing a tying notch, though it might equally be merely random damage capriciously inflicted. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diameter: 26.8mm, Thick…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast whorl of plano-convex profile with a moulded aperture of diameter 9.8mm, Walton Rogers form A1. Possibly miscast as the lower part is notably unevenly formed; patinated. The large spindle hole may suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian date; the mass would permit this to be used to spin a fine yarn. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000.

Lead spindle whorl. Cast whorl with one larger flat side and one narrower, and with a moulded central aperture of diameter 11.1mm, Walton Rogers form A2. The object may be miscast, as its lower side is of uneven thickness; shrinkage lines in the upper surface indicate it was made in an open mould. Patinated. The spindle size may suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian date. The mass would permit this to be used to spin a fine yarn. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 950-1050.

Copper alloy pin. Cast pin with a globular head with thin wrythen or spiral grooves and a flattened head on which a cross is neatly incised, Flixborough Type 131. A collar separates the head from a round section shank which tapers to a point, of mid-shank diameter 2.2mm. The bend in the shank is a common feature of such pins, which were probably used as hairpins; polished by wear. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 800-850. Length (as found): 43mm, Diameter (head): 8.2mm, Weight: 3.71gms.

Copper alloy harness mount fragment. A cast semi-circular plate with the stubs of a probably rectangular loop projecting from its curving edge. The opposite edge is broken across a central member flanked by voids in an apparently openwork scheme; one strut remains to one side and its counterpart may be inferred on the other side. The curved edge of the plate bears an incised border to an interlaced anthropomorphic scheme which resembles the eyes and brows of a human mask. Each eye and brow is represented by paired and nested curls. Symetrical triangular arrangements of lines above the …

Copper alloy sleeve clasp. Cast rectangular plate with the stubs of a rectangular eye on one long side and the stubs of three attachment loops on the opposite edge, Hines Form B12. The loops were drilled through U-shaped tabs which project from plain zones of the main plate; there is crudely scored horizontal grooves occupy two intervening panels. This type of clasp has been found at locations widely scattered across eastern England. Though derived from Scandinavian prototypes they are of exclusively English distribution, implying an insular continuation of a costume which entailed tig…

Gold pendant. A discoid plate of beaten gold sheet with a separate wire rim, and with the upstanding sheet metal wall of a central circular cell, now empty, of internal diameter 11.5mm. A stone - perhaps a garnet - has been lost from the central cell, whose wall was slightly inclined inwards to clench its base. The sheet metal cell wall is c.0.5mm thick. The outer wire rim [of diameter 0.9mm] has parted from the sheet plate at one point, where its under-surface appears indented or billeted, and a similar appearance is also visible elsewhere when the two elements are distinguishable by …

Lead net sinker. A weight made by neatly rolling a rectangular fragment of cast lead sheet around a former of diameter c.4mm, possibly the selvedge of a net, with its edges closed by a tightly butted joint. Patinated. This form of sinker was reported from Middle Saxon Flixborough, North Lincolnshire, where varieties with butted and overlapping seams were distinguished. This is a neat and smaller version of the type. It has been suggested that such weights might have been used for nets used in wildfowling as well as for fishing. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-1050. Length: 23.5mm,…

Copper alloy cruciform brooch fragment. Cast lunate or pelta-shaped foot of a small cruciform brooch. The foot is plain, and there is a stop or collar above it with a horizontal groove across it, above which the lower bow narrows slightly; the rest of the brooch is lost. The display face is fiercely abraded and corroded, but the flat back is smooth with a greyish tint suggesting tin in the metal mix. This differential damage is the reverse of what might be expected if the brooch had formed part of a burial costume, as the back would then have been closer to the decaying body and the co…
