Object type: STRAP END
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy possible strap end. A very thin plano-convex section object with a kinked and pointed narrower end, a ribbed expansion just short of its mid-point, and split at the other end. Fiercely abraded. Possibly a distressed example of Thomas Class C, which are ascribed to the 8th-9th centuries and Middle Saxon contexts. A reddish tint to the metal here is, however, a feature often associated with Anglo-Scandinavian metalwork. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-850. Length: 42.4mm, Width: 4.9mm, Thickness: 1.9mm, Weight: 1.23gms

County: North Lincolnshire

Lead probable weight. Cast disc with apparently excess material at the edge of a flat discoid weight, arising from casting in an open mould. A plain cross appears in low relief on the side which would have formed in the base of the mould. Patinated. The mass might suggest this to represent one ore/ora of c.24gms, the underweight Anglo-Scandinavian version of the ounce. However, its correspondence with the modules used in contemporary bullion transactions [of either 4.07gms or 4.43gms; this weight might imprecisely represent six units in either system] is less exact than would normally…

Copper alloy and iron brooch fragment. Cast plain straight-sided bow of thickness 2.1mm with a stop at its upper end. Above this rises a half-round knob of two graduated stages with a collar and constriction between them. Behind the base of the knob, paired U-shaped lugs retain the iron stub of a pin. The main part of the bow stands proud of lower narrow edges, and has a further rectangular panel, possibly applied, set centrally at the apex of its curve. The bow is broken at the return of its curve and the pointed stub is smoothed by wear. A series of juxtaposed circular stamps runs do…

Copper alloy stirrup terminal, as kindly confirmed by Rob Webley, who comments on an identification of the object as a mount: 'I would be happy for this to go down as a stirrup terminal...'. Cast zoomorphic mount comprising a broad flat-based snout with eyes or nostrils to either side, and with symmetrical features in low relief perhaps representing other details of a beast's muzzle. The object has a rounded knop above these features, furnished with lentoid eyes in low relief on either side. It is hollow behind where this piece fitted onto another object of a different material, probab…

Copper alloy possible hooked tag. Triangular sheet metal plate [thickness 0.7mm] with a collar and knop at its narrower end. Closely juxtaposed stamped conical pits follow the edges as a border. The knop may be the worn stub of a hook, cf. Read Early Medieval Class B Type 1 or the object may resemble a hooked tag but have performed a distinct function.

Lead possible gaming piece. Solid cast plano-convex object with a flat base and a rounded top; patinated. Possibly for a board game such as Tafl. The object was presented along with three similarly shaped and sized lead objects which were hollow, and all could come from a single set. The mass might alternatively suggest this to be a weight: if so, it may have imprecisely represented three [underweight] Viking age units of 4.43gms or three [overweight] units of 4.07gms, or one half ora/ore., the contemporay [underweight] version of the ounce. However, the correspondence with these value…

Copper alloy pendant. Cast slightly concavo-convex disc with a cast suspension loop with aperture at right angles to the display plane, and with a central round hole for a stone [now lost]. A field of curvilinear and probably representational interlace occupies the display face between flat plain inner and outer borders. Gilding appears on both sides and on the loop; the combination of interlace and a gilded finish is associated with the Middle Saxon 8th century. However, the design of a pendant with central stone looks back to the 7th-century 'Final Phase' of furnished burial, albeit …

Copper alloy pin. Cast pin with a facetted head with two large and eleven smaller rhomboid facets, above a collar which separates it from a round section shank [of diameter 2.8mm] which is of unvaried form insofar as it survives, Flixborough type 231. Each smaller facet bears a single ring-and-dot of diameter 2.6mm, each with a prominent dot and small ring; the larger facets bear four ring-and-dot in a symmetrical arrangement. This is a little larger, about three times heavier, and also more decorated, than most pins of this form. This might suggest a different use, albeit still one wh…

Copper alloy strap fitting. Cast oval round section [diameter 3.7mm] loop of length 38.6mm and width 22mm which passes through a round hole of diameter 9mm at the rounded part of a straight-sided plate of thickness 2mm which has been bent back on itself; the other end of the plate as it now appears is straight. The plate was made as a long rectangular strip with a central U-shaped cut-out, and was then bent round the site of the cut-out so its two ends lay almost side by side and in the same plane, thereby forming a round hole. This operation secured the loop, but leaves some play and …

Lead possible weight. Cast flat sub-discoid weight; indented on one side to achieve its current form, probably fortuitously; with a somewhat uneven upper surface, patinated. A tiny [length 2mm] pierced mark appears off-centre. The mass equates to almost exactly three units of 4.43gms, a module employed in Viking Age Dublin for transactions of silver bullion, and perhaps by extension in the Viking 'kingdom' of York and Dublin under which Lindsey fell c.865-925. This was a duodecimal system, and most weights thought to respect it were of even multiples of units: i.e. 2, 4, 6 - also equiv…

Copper alloy probable ear ring. Sheet metal penannular object with an expanded central part and one pointed end and one hooked sharp narrow end. Eighteen circular stamps, each resembling a small [diameter c.1.2mm] ring-and-dot within a larger [diameter 2.3mm] rounded hollow or pit. The use of ring and dot decoration - particularly noted amongst female dress accessories such as hair pins - is seen as part of a suite of features differentiating later 9th-century Viking from Anglo-Saxon styles, a topic explored by David Haldenby in a series of published and on-line papers. The finder conc…
