Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano convex whorl with a larger and a smaller flat side and a moulded central aperture of diameter 7mm, Walton Rogers form A2. Patinated.

Copper alloy strap end. Cast zoomorphic strap end with a beast head terminal and a split inner end [one leaf of which is lost, probably recently] with paired stitching holes, Thomas Class A Type 1. A central bordered panel bears an interlaced design depicting a ?hound with long hare-like ears with its forepaw resting in front of the erect head. The body is spotted with stamped pits. The further extent of the body turns behind the head with a lower limb uppermost to the left of the panel [i.e. towards the terminal]. The creature is at all events mammalian rather than reptilian. A possib…

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. Cast D-section curving bar with moulded segmented relief on its display side and a plain rounded end. If the curve were continued to enable the object's ends to meet, it might suggest an internal diameter of c.100mm. The object is broken across two immediately juxtaposed drilled holes, which pass from front to back [diameter 2.8mm] and side to side [diameter 2.3mm]. The segments, of which there are six on the part of the object which remains, are separated by narrow billeted cordons. The vermiform appearance of the object recalls an equal-arme…

Copper alloy possible mount fragment. Cast fragment from the end of an object with a zoomorphic dragonesque terminal. The head is an indented rectangle with two shallow notches above and below and one at the muzzle. A rounded ear projects at the back of the head, which is at the end of a probably segmented curving neck. Abraded. A reddish tint may hint at an Anglo-Scandinavian date. The form of the head was compared with those on Roman dragonesque brooches, but did not closely resemble these. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1050.

Lead weight. Cast tapered flat-sided weight. Sand imprints on one larger flat side and the adjoining narrower sides indicate this was cast in a sand bed, which marks an episode of 'professional' casting. Patinated. The mass suggests this may have represented three units of 4.07gms, as used in Viking-Age Scandinavia for transactions in silver bullion. Simple forms of weights respecting this and allied systems of measurement were probably common, though their recognition is less common. Weights of this type representing uneven numbers of units are rarer than those representing even numbe…

Copper alloy hooked tag. A cast triangular plate with traces of a possibly bordered panel of curvilinear interlace ornament. A very short hook or its stub projects from the narrow end. The upper edge is torn, presumably adjacent to stitching holes [lost]. The finder kindly suggests the decoration to be of Ringerike style, though it might equally be devolved Trewhiddle style ornament. Read early medieval Class A Type 1. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 800-1000. Length: 25.5mm, Width: 13mm, Thickness (hook): 1.6mm, Weight: 1.32gms

Lead weight. One half of a cast discoid flat-sided weight with a lightly bevelled edge apparently arising from five cuts conferring a facetted appearance. Patinated, with very fine straight scratches in various directions on its upper side and with wider but probably adventitious marks on the lower. The mass may suggest this to now represent one ora/ore, a Viking Age equivalent of an underweight ounce, comprising six [here slightly underweight] sub units of 4.07gms. These units were used for transactions in silver bullion, which displaced the use of coinage in Danelaw areas c.850-950.…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a larger and a smaller flat face, a gently curved rim around the former, and with a moulded central aperture of diameter 7.6mm, Walton Rogers form A2. Patinated. Deep nicks and odd casting flaws give the misleading impression of decoration; patinated overall. The spindle size would admit a Middle Saxon date while the mass may indicate a primary function spinning a yarn. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-850.

Lead spindle whorl. A cast whorl of plano-convex section with a central moulded aperture of diameter 6.9mm, cf. Walton Rogers form A1; patinated. Traces of equidistantly spaced radial ribs appear on the convex surface, along with a single neatly incised line. The mass may suggest a primary function spinning a yarn, while the small aperture size may point to an Anglo-Saxon date. Against this, the appearance of radial decoration is a feature more usually associated with larger biconical whorls of the early post-medieval period, and those 'one sided' versions cast from them as copies.

Lead possible spindle whorl. Cast annular or tubular cylindrical object with a central moulded aperture of diameter [now] c.13mm. Shrinkage lines indicate this was cast in an open mould. Patinated, and indented by a distorting impact. If a whorl, this might be an example of Walton Rogers form B. Suggested date: possibly Early Medieval, 950-1100.

Copper alloy and lead object, kindly identified by Alex Bliss as a stirrup side terminal of 11th century date and probable Anglo-Scandinavian attribution. A small concavo-convex cast object of copper alloy, forming half a tube of wall thickness c.1.1mm, with a dense white filling in its concave side. Viewed in profile, the convex side is gently humped at one end, with a pair of angled ridges meeting between the hump and a rounded end. Abraded. The appearance is of a simple zoomorphic scheme, with the ridges representing eyes or brows, which might point to a Viking-Age date. Suggested …

Lead possible weight. A thin flat-sided oval-ended billet with knife-cut edges; patinated. The mass may suggest this to represent eight units of 4.07gmns, as used in Viking Age Scandinavia for transactions in silver bullion. Numerous plain lead weights thought to respect this or allied systems have been reported, and their Early Medieval date has been advanced by Dave Haldenby and Jane Kershaw with reference to a large assemblage from Cottam, East Riding of Yorkshire. There, such weights were either rectangular or discoid, so this form combines these formal characteristics in an objec…

Lead possible weight. Cast rectangular block with cut ends, and with tiny pits over its largest opposed flat surfaces. Lightly patinated. Marks of this character are sometimes ascribed to chewing by vermin or children, but in this case they do not appear anywhere except on opposed sides, and so may be formed deliberately, perhaps with the point of a knife. The mass equates to one ora/ore, the slightly underweight Viking-Age equivalent to the ounce, and in this case may comprise six (slightly underweight) units of 4.07gms, which were used for bullion transactions in the Viking 'kingdom…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast whorl of plano-convex form with a central moulded aperture of diameter 10.2mm, Walton Rogers form A1. Shrinkage lines in the upper surface as cast suggest the object was made in an open mould. Patinated, and distorted by subsequent impact. The ample hole may point to an Anglo-Scandinavian date while the mass suggests a primary function plying cord. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000.

Copper alloy possible strap end. Cast elongated plate of plano-concavo section, broken at one or possibly both ends. Either closely-spaced transverse grooves or chatter marks appear along the ridge of the display face towards one end. This might be the remnant of a simple strap end of Thomas Class A, or a similar object of later date, as might be expected to bear either simpler or devolved decoration, albeit almost entirely lost to wear. This interpretation presupposes the loss of the means of attachment as well as, possibly, a decorated terminal. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-1…
