Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead spindle whorl. Small whorl of plano-convex form with angled sides and a moulded aperture of diameter 8mm; patinated overall and abraded. The small size and mass would permit this to be used to spin a fine yarn, which is unusual for a whorl made of lead; the aperture size could suggest either a Roman or Anglo-Saxon date; in the latter case this might qualify as Walton Rogers form A2 - the accompanying material gives scant indication of Roman activity. Suggested date: possibly Early Medieval, 500-700. Diameter: 19.2mm, Thickness: 9.9mm, Weight: 13.26gms.

Lead spindle whorl. Cast discoid whorl with central moulded aperture of diameter 9mm, probably Walton Rogers form B; patinated overall. The mass may suggest this was used to ply cord. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diameter: 34.5mm, Thickness: 7.9mm, Weight: 53.51gms.

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead Weight. Cast near-cylindrical or drum-shaped weight with a sunken rimmed top; patinated overall. Though weights with inset objects are characteristic of the Early Medieval period, there is no indication that the hollow on this object was ever occupied. The mass indicates this to represent six units of 4.43gms, as have been inferred from finds from Early Medieval Dublin. Lindsey lay within the Viking 'kingdom' of York and Dublin until the reassertion of English control in the early 10th century. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 875-925. Diameter: 18.5mm, Height: 10.8mm, Weight: 26.77gms.

Lead spindle whorl. Cast sub-cylindrical whorl with a moulded central aperture of diameter 11.8mm and two flat faces, one larger than the other, Walton Rogers form A2. Patinated overall. The wide aperture tends to ally this object with Anglo-Scandinavian rather than earlier material. The rings on the upper surface (as cast and used) indicate this was made in an open mould. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diameter: 25.9mm, Thickness: 11.3mm, Weight: 43.70gms.

Lead spindle whorl. Cast whorl of flattened plan-convex profile with a moulded tapered central aperture of diameter 10.6mm, Walton Rogers form A2 or B. Patinated overall.

Lead weight. Half of a flat cast discoid weight, with a knife-cut straight edge. A further scored line may represent preparation for a further subdivision into quarters, though not further implemented. Lightly patinated and speckled with charcoal. The mass may suggest this to represent four Scandinavian units of 4.07gms, as used for the weighing of silver bullion. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000.

Copper alloy possible tweezers fragment. Cast D-section strip with one end curled over, here presumed to be the blade end of a tweezer arm. The other end bears a drilled hole of diameter c.2mm. Moulded decoration comprises horizontal and diagonal grooves towards the blade end and similar mouldings where the piece is drilled at the other end. It is envisaged this would be joined with another separate arm at the drilled hole - a recently reported example of this type retains a rivet in this position. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 500-850. Length: 40.7mm, Width: 4.0mm, Thickness: 1.8mm…

Copper alloy possible stirrup mount fragment. Cast openwork plate with curvilinear elements of indeterminate interlaced creatures or tendrils. The flat back retains rust stains and and a white deposit, the two materials probably being unrelated though the former is often found on stirrup mounts. The reddish tint of the metal is also characteristic of Anglo-Scandinavian material. This may be part of a mount of Williams Class A, type unspecified. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 1000-1100. Length: 38.6mm, Width: 25.5mm, Thickness: 2.8mm, Weight: 11.13gms.

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a moulded aperture of diameter 10.4mm, Walton Rogers form A1. A slight ridge runs part way around the body. This object is scarcely patinated which - unless the finder has robustly cleaned it [which he is of occasion wont to do] - may indicate its incorporation into a sealed context shortly after deposition, or its recent date. The form, however, is common at Viking-Age Coppergate, York, where the similarly shaped femur caput whorls were dated to the 10th century. The aperture size in this case indicates a date after the Middle Anglo-Sax…

Copper alloy and iron tweezers fragment. One arm of a pair of tweezers, with a rounded spatulate end, tapering gently towards the position of an iron rivet of diameter 1.6mm and length 3mm, lightly burred at its end. Another similar arm was presumably attached thereby. Above the rivet there is a horizontal groove and an oval terminal which is turned at its end, possibly to assist the hinged play of the other arm if its end fitted here. The terminal bears indistinct surface relief - though this is possibly merely the effect of decay - which emphasises its resemblance to a beast head te…

Copper alloy bridle fitting or cheek piece. Cast rhomboid loop with knops at three of its angles and a shank, now broken, at the fourth. The slight hollowing on parts of the back of the object may suggest it was made in an open mould. The red tint of metal is especially characteristic of Anglo-Scandinavian material. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Length: 28.8mm, Width: 26.3mm, Thickness: 3.9mm, Weight: 5.43gms.

Silver coin. Penny of Offa of Mercia (757-796), as kindly identified by the finder. The obverse is unusual for the division of the royal name, which more usually appears on a single line (cf. North 1994 plate 4, nos 24-26). Obverse description: Legend over two lines separated by a pelleted line, with initial cross and longer shafted cross on its side below legend. Pellets appear between letters F and F. Possibly pellets at 12 O'clock. Obverse inscription: +.OFF / A REX Reverse description: Four petalled flower with a line flanked by pellets on each petal.

County: Lincolnshire

Lead Weight. Cast discoid weight with lightly bevelled sides and a dimple in one face, the uppermost as cast; patinated overall. The mass indicates this is exactly equivalent to three units of 4.43gms, as used in the Viking Dublin system for the weighing of silver bullion. Weights observing this and contemporary systems of measurement are more usually representative of even multiples - 2, 4, 6 and so on - but correspondence is exact in this case. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 865-925. Diameter: 18.2mm, Thickness: 6.5mm, Weight: 13.29gms.

Copper alloy buckle. Cast single looped or D shaped buckle with beast head terminals at either end of a narrowed strap bar. The frame is ridged or corrugated with a central slot on its outer edge serving as a pin rest, and is bevelled behind. The beast head ornament and the vermiform ridging both suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian affinity. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 900-1050. Length: 22.4mm, Height: 22.1mm, Thickness: 3.8mm, Weight: 4.10gms.
