Lead alloy disc brooch. Cast plate with five moulded bosses on its display face, each bordered by a low gutter, and probably forming part of a cruciform arrangement, possibly with the peripheral bosses in the angles of a cross. An outer border appears, possibly billeted. A thick folded lug on the back is probably a catch plate though there is no sign of a distinct pin seat; it at all events related to fastening. Patinated and lightly bent. This appears to be a later Anglo-Scandinavian brooch, with a border possibly recalling Borre style ornamentation, and is an example of the cheaper b…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast cylindrical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 11mm; the lower side as cast is gently rounded, though the overall form resembles Walton Rogers' form B. Shrinkage lines around the hole on the upper side suggest the object was cast in an open mould. The generous aperture size may suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian date. Patinated. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 950-1100. Diameter: 27.2mm, Thickness: 11.6mm, Weight: 47.20gms

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a central moulded aperture of duiameter 5.3mm, of Walton Rogers form A1; patinated. The small aperture size could admit an Anglo-Saxon date while the mass may suggest a primary function spinning a yarn. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-850.

County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead weight. Cast oval lightly plano-convex object of lentoid form with a central longitudinal ridge on its convex side. The object is nicked at one end; the finder kindly suggests the loss of a loop from this site, though the provision would have been slight to enable the secure suspension of the object. Lightly patinated. The mass might suggest this to represent three units of 4.43gms, as used in the Viking 'kingdom' of York and Dublin for silver bullion transactions, or one half of an ore/ora, the contemporary [underweight equivalent of the] ounce. However, when multiples of postula…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast cylindrical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 8mm, with a slight lip on the upper side as cast, suggesting manufacture in an open mould, Walton Rogers form B; patinated. The aperture size suggests a Middle Saxon date. The mass may suggest a primary function plying a cord. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-850. Diameter: 30.8mm, Thickness: 11.2mm, Weight: 67.07gms

Lead spindle whorl. Cast sub-cylindrical or doughnut-shaped whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 9.7-10.7mm diameter, Walton Rogers form B. Patinated. The form and ample aperture size - though perhaps of variable size because of a slight casting error - may together suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian date. The mass would suggest a primary function spinning a fine yarn. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 950-1050. Diameter: 18.9mm, Thickness: 11.3mm, Weight: 16.66gms

Lead net sinker. A weight made by wrapping cast sheet of thickness 1.5mm tightly around a former; patinated. The form is known from Middle Saxon Flixborough, where uses netting both fish and birds were suggested. As this weight has not been unrolled it may have been attached to the net when deposited. This object was kindly recorded by Luke Robinson on 19 September 2011. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-850 Length: 28.3mm, Diameter: 11.5mm, Weight: 18.11gms

Copper alloy mount fragment. Fragment from a cast pentagonal openwork mount, probably from horse harness, as kindly suggested by Dr Kevin Leahy. The fragment has one complete and two partial sides, all bearing closely-spaced diagonal hatching framing for a zoomorphic openwork design of four battling beasts around a central roundel. The straight body and crooked rear leg of one beast with a long three-clawed foot appears as resting on the basal side [as illustrated]. The long thin body is wrapped about by the tail of [possibly] another creature whose body or ?wing appears as an oval e…

Silver ingot. A fragment of hack-silver with casually incised or stamped decoration on one side, with short [c.1.5mm] slashes forming the strands of an interlaced motif, and with about fourteen small [diameter c.1.3mm or less] circular pits along a crooked element set apart from the rest. The ends of the object have been severed by three angled cuts executed from the plain back and its longest straight edge by another, with some uncertainty as to whether a sub-trapezoid aperture cut from the decorated side is original to the object being dismantled or part of the process of its destruc…

Copper alloy pendant. A thick [2.1mm] cast disc with an incised design on one side, comprising two converging lines with two pairs of lines above and to either side, possibly a very schematic Victory through whose head the suspension hole has been cut. The object is pierced or punched by a triangular-section point, probably from the decorated side as metal has spalled way on the plain side. The edges of the disc have subsequently been crimped to reduce a discoid object to sub-triangular form, this executed with considerable force to bend such a thick flan. The appearance is of a crudel…

Copper alloy pin fragment. Cast pin with a globular head with incised slashes on its upper part and a drilled pit of diameter 1.5mm diameter occupying a flattened top of diameter 3.5mm, and so appearing like a ring-and-dot, all above a collar which separates it from a round section shank of diameter 2.2mm which appears to expand very slightly from the collar to the current end; cf. Flixborough types 131 and 132. The lower shank is lost. The slashed decoration is slightly angled but does not actually travel diagonally across the whole head, and so departs from 'wrythen' convention. Prob…

Copper alloy mount. Rhomboid plate of thick [0.6mm] sheet metal with a near-circular expanded lobe at either end, each with a drilled fixing hole of diameter 2.6mm. An incised panel of decoration comprises a single line border which follows the line of the sides of the object but which stops at either end, at first sight framing a simple interlaced pattern of intersecting hand-drawn loops. In fact, each border line turns at an acute angle at its end and it is their continuations which form the pattern. The finder kindly suggests a function as a belt stiffener. The style is indeed compa…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast whorl of plano-convex form with a central moulded aperture of diameter 10mm, Walton Rogers form A1, probably cast in an open mould. The lower convex part of the whorl may have the rim of the hole emphasised in low relief with possibly projecting radial elements, though there are equally indications of poor casting here. Together with the form, the ample spindle hole may suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian date, though unusually, the object lacks surface patina. The mass tends to suggest a primary function plying cord. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diamet…

Copper alloy annular brooch fragment. One half of a lightweight sheet metal broad banded annular brooch, torn at either end. The band is decorated by a series of punched dots set equidistantly from each other in two rows which follow the outer edges. This appears to be a crude contemporary imitation of an annular brooch of Anglian style, with more formal stamped decoration represented by the dots. The light fabric is entirely unsuitable to serve as a dress fastener, and was probably equally unsuited to perform other roles in the costume of the time such as chatelaine rings or bag fitti…

Copper alloy brooch. Cast small long brooch in particularly good condition, suggesting its recent disturbance from a sealed context - for this artefact type, most likely the grave of an adult Anglo-Saxon woman. A cruciform head plate of cross potent form has paired grooves at the ends of its side arms and the same motif repeated with an intervening space on its top arm. The lower arm is truncated, and serves as the origin point for a convex curved mid bow. At its top, this has a pair of triangular cut-outs or stops at its sides and a more emphatic pair of horizontal grooves at its base…

Copper alloy possible finger ring. A small cast band of a flattened lentoid section with continuous wavy line of stamped dots of diameter c.0.7mm and with intermittent zones featuring a trapezoid figure defined by curved indentations, these alternating between one edge of the band and the other. The band is broken, the object now forming an open oval loop. This might alternatively be a binding for a thin rod; the small size could only suggest wear as a finger ring by a child or a very slightly built woman. Suggested date: possibly Early Medieval, 900-1100. Internal diameter (long axi…

Lead possible spindle whorl. Mis-cast plano-convex discoid object of plano-convex section with a central aperture, here varying in its diameter from 12mm to 5mm. Shrinkage lines on the flat surface suggest this was cast in an open mould. Patinated. The shape closely resembles that of whorls of Walton Rogers form A1, though the failure in manufacture leaves the spindle size uncertain and its dating consequently open. The mass would admit a primary function spinning a yarn. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-900. Diameter: 26.6mm, Thickness: 8.3mm, Weight: 26.71gms
