Copper alloy stirrup mount, Williams Class A Type 11. Cast triangular plate with a flange along its lower wider edge and two drilled holes above it, of diameter 4.4mm. A further drilled hole appears at the apex, in the middle of the uppermost knop of three. A relief moulded motif features a beast with its head thrown back and jaws agape, and with its tail curled above its back, within a bordered field.

Copper alloy buckle plate. Cast plate of trefoil form and of 0.9mm thickness with three dome headed rivets to attach plate to strap, and a slot for the pin [which is lost, as is the frame]. An intact and in situ rivet has a head of diameter 9.2mm and a rivet [including head] c.6mm long. A second rivet is now detached, and has a head of 9.4mm diameter and a shank of length 6.6mm. The third rivet head is broken; what remains of it is now sub-triangular. Traces of gilding appear on the display side. The back of the plate is lost. The use of tripled domed rivets recalls Frankish buckle sty…

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead alloy game piece, as kindly identified by the finder. Cast sub-rectangular concavo-convex object with a central ridged mould line; a small projection from this is perhaps a stub of casting sprue. Patinated overall. The shape now resembles a miniature bread loaf of modern type, perhaps as the result of crushing. One side is also indented, probably again as a result of adventitious damage. This object was found close to a castellated playing piece (NLM-7ABE36) considered to be for the game of Tafl, and the size and form of the two objects is so similar as to suggest they come from t…

Lead alloy game piece, as kindly identified by the finder. Cast concavo-convex conical counter with four knops on its top modelled in bold relief and connected in a cruciform pattern by low ridges. The sides and top of the object bear traces of a dark blue-grey colorant which, if not an adventitious effect of soil conditions, might relate to the distinction of the piece for a two player game. A domed form is typical of pieces for the board game Hnafetafl, which was played in both Anglo-Saxon and Viking contexts. The 'king' was distinguished from the other pieces which defended or pursu…

Copper alloy possible aestel. Composite object of two cast components; the back is flat which may suggest use as a mount, but the juxtaposition of the parts suggests a more specific function. An outer oval frame of minimum thickness c.3mm [at top as viewed] is crudely moulded with thickened ends to its loop and a pair of grooved ribs at 10 and 2 O'clock [as viewed in illustration]. The frame continues as a pair of rectangular section arms which are slightly flared, bringing the overall thickness of the object to 7.6mm at their ends. A solid cross with pellet ends to its arms and a long…

Copper alloy strap end. Cast tongue shaped openwork strap end, Thomas Class E Type 2. A cast plate with two eccentrically positioned attachment holes at a lug at its straight (belt) end, and with two more at its edges.

Lead and copper alloy weight. Cast cylindrical weight with an embedded object; what protrudes appears as part of a spherical object of estimated diameter 10.5mm standing proud of the upper surface. Patinated overall with a chip in one edge. The weight may represent five units of a module of either 4.43gms or 4.07gms, attributed respectively to bullion measurement systems used in Viking Dublin and contemporary Scandinavia. In neither case is the correspondence as close as this reporter would require for a weight of less distinctive form to be attributed to this period, though this is pr…

Copper alloy stirrup mount. Cast plate, probably originally pentagonal in form, with a flange at its broad lower edge bent nearly at right angles to the display face, probably Williams Class A Type 1. Two drilled holes of diameter 3.6mm appear above the flange. The edge of a third may appear on the upper edge. Traces of a border are discernible, though the characteristic decoration of the plate is lost to wear or abrasion. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 1000-1050. Height: 27.7mm, Width: 27.2mm, Thickness: 1.6mm, Weight: 6.34gms.

Lead and copper alloy game piece. Cast waisted conical or onion-shaped game piece. A small hollow tube of external diameter 4.7mm is set centrally in the flat base, and has perhaps been worn or trimmed flush with it. Patinated overall. Onion-shaped playing pieces made of various materials are known from pagan Viking graves at Birka; they are thought to have been used for the game of Hnafetafl, of which versions were also played by the Anglo-Saxons. The inserted object in the base may be a peg for use with a board perforated in the manner of a travelling chess set. It might have been tr…

Silver buckle fragment. Cast buckle fitting fragment, as kindly identified by the finder. A bar of D section with a sharp bend at one end (beyond which it is broken), and with three incised grooves separating the bar from a flat sub-discoid terminal with a rectangular lug projecting from its back.

Lead weight. Cast discoid slightly plano-convex weight with lightly bevelled edges and an off-centre D-shaped stamp with a small shoe-shaped figure standing proud within it. There are also faint traces of a possible circumferential inscription within a linear border, apparently comprising letters of which both straight and curved elements are discernible - angled lighting brings these into view. Lettering may continue as an inner order, though without an inner circle to limit them. The mass may suggest this to represent four units of 4.07gms, as were used in Viking Age Scandinavia for …

Lead spindle whorl. Cast flat-sided cylindrical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 10.6mm, Walton Rogers form B. Patinated overall.

Copper alloy strap end. Cast openwork strap end with near-parallel sides, tapered towards a knop at one end and with three conjoined hemispheres at the other. Six circular and one heater-shield-shaped apertures may have permitted sewn attachment. A low transverse ridge appears between the shield and one of two sets or round holes. Abraded.

Lead spindle whorl. Cast whorl of plano-convex form with a central moulded aperture of diameter 7.3mm, Walton Rogers form A1. Patinated overall. The small size of aperture may admit an Anglo-Saxon date while the mass would permit this object to be used to spin a fine yarn. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-850. Diameter: 21.3mm, Thickness: 6.0mm, Weight: 13.14gms.
