Lead possible spindle whorl. Cast whorl with tapered central aperture of diameter 14-16mm, of truncated conical form, possibly with very lightly facetted sides, cf. Walton Rogers form B; patinated overall. The large aperture introduces some doubt as to the identification, though the mass would be consistent with a function plying cord. A number of smaller annular weights have been reported from the vicinity, possibly used as fishing line weights, and this may alternatively have performed a similar function to those; both sides have features which might bear interpretation as tying notc…

Lead weight. Cast discoid weight, encrusted on one side but with only light patina on the other. Surface damage is probably adventitious and post-dates deposition. The mass may suggest this object to represent eight units of 4.43gms, as used for silver bullion transactions in Viking Dublin. Lindsey was controlled by the Viking 'kingdom' of York and Dublin from the later 9th to the early 10th century, and the Dublin system of weights and measures appears to have functioned alongside a contemporary Scandinavian system based on a slightly smaller module. Weights of this and other forms wh…

Lead weight. Cast cylindrical weight with a central moulded aperture of diameter 4.4mm. A deep nick on one flat face may be a tying notch for medieval use or reuse as a fishing weight, though two scratches on the opposite side are clearly recent damage; patinated overall. The mass may permit this object to have first served as a weight of two Scandinavian units of 4.07gms, as used for Viking-Age bullion transactions. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diameter: 14.2mm, Thickness: 5.9mm, Weight: 8.22gms.

Lead weight. Cast rectangular weight, made in an open mould, as evidenced by a lipped edge to one larger side. The lower surface, as cast, bears three longitudinal knife cut lines, crossed by a single similar line at their mid point. A further angled cut crosses one corner of the same face. Lightly patinated overall. The mass may suggest this to represent eight units of 4.07gms, a module for the weighing of silver bullion according to a system of weights thought to have been used in Viking-Age Scandinavia. The division of the inscribed face into eight fields by the straight lines may r…

Copper alloy possible strap end fragment. Cast oval plate, broken at both ends, and with extremely faint traces of decoration on both sides: on one side a pair of ring-and-dot, and, possibly, a strand of running guilloche running down the centre line. The form invites comparison with Thomas Class A strap ends. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-850. Length: 24.4mm, Width: 14.5mm, Thickness: 1.7mm, Weight: 3.20gms.

Fine grained grey stone whetstone. A small bar-shaped hone with a drilled hole of diameter 4.2mm for suspension from a belt or girdle. Thinned by heavy wear, which has contributed a smoothly curved end; the object was probably discarded at the end of a long working life, having too little length left for whetting a blade. This material is sometimes described as purple phylite, though this description may embrace stones of various tints gathered from glacial drift as well as from geological sources in Scotland, Norway and elsewhere. 'Phylite' hones are prominent among whetstones of Angl…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 12.5mm, Walton Rogers form A1. Patinated overall. The aperture size, which is larger than usual, suggests an Anglo-Scandinavian date. The mass indicates this would be used to ply a cord. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diameter: 38.3mm, Thickness: 11.1mm, Weight: 84.13gms.

Copper alloy and iron brooch fragment. Cast small long brooch, square head plate type - an indentation on one side might suggest a cross potent head but this is not matched elsewhere on the remaining fabric. A thin flat rectangular head has a drilled hole of diameter 2.7mm near opposite corners. A step seperates the head from a keeled bow with a rectangular stop at its base. The lower bow continues straight and slightly tapered, with a pair of incised lines immediately adjacent to a probably ancient break. A pair of lugs retaining iron corrosion represents the pin; the stub of the uppe…

Copper alloy and iron brooch. Cast tiny Small Long brooch, comprising a cruciform head of cross potent form with about half of a keeled and curving bow remaining below it. A lug on the back retains the corroded remains of an iron spring or pin, and the back also retains extensive gilding traces. This diminutive version of a common 6th-century form may have served as part of a working pair with NLM-814DFE, reported from the same location. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 500-600. Length: 26.3mm, Width: 21.1mm, Thickness (head plate): 1.4mm, Weight: 4.43gms.

Copper alloy and iron brooch fragment. Copper alloy head of a simple tiny radiate headed brooch, comprising a semi-circular plate with three equidistant collared knops projecting from its ends and centre. A moulded relief motif on the plate resembles a pair of oval eyes with a brow-line above them, within a pronounced border. The top of a lightly keeled bow remains below the head plate; its lower extent is lost. On the back a U-shaped lug retains the corroded stub of an iron pin or spring, and extensive gilding traces are also preserved here. The form is of Frankish origin, an affinity…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast barrel shaped or sub-cylindrical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 7mm, Walton Rogers form B; lightly patinated. The aperture size may indicate an Anglo-Saxon date although the former characteristic of Anglo-Scandinavian whorls; the mass would admit the use of this object to spin a yarn. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-850. Diameter: 18.2mm, Thickness: 14.2mm, Weight: 22.67gms.

Lead weight. Cast discoid weight with a rectangular figure scored on one face and small (length 1.25mm) wedge shaped punch marks on both its flat surfaces, some arranged in groups, and one group of five forming a rosette pattern. Patinated overall. The mass could suggest this to represent five Anglo-Saxon units of 3.1gms (Smith 1923 and Kruse 1992, cited by Wastling 2009 [Flixborough finds] page 422). The rosette motif resembles motifs in the repertoire of stamps used to decorate cremation urns of the Early Anglo-Saxon period, and its construction here from five stamps might allude to …

Lead weight. Cast plano-convex discoid weight with a central drilled hole of diameter 3.3mm. Hollows and low ridges may form an irregular pattern around the whole, though may well be fortuitous. Patinated overall. The mass may suggest this to represent four units of 4.43gms, as used in Viking Age Dublin and its affiliated territories, including the Viking 'kingdom' of York and Dublin, for silver bullion transactions. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 865-925. Diameter: 22.1mm, Thickness: 5.9mm, Weight: 17.53gms.

Copper alloy strap end. Cast trapezoid plate with a flat wide end and curved at its narrower end where a slightly flattened round knop appears at the end of a narrow oval section lug. Both sides of the plate bear incised curvilinear ornament accompanied by curved and comma shaped indented panels filled with fine cross hatch. A similar subject is depicted on both sides: viewed upright this appears to include a draped figure to the left standing on a zig-zag crenelated surface, and panels of cross hatch to the upper right. The right field in both cases is subdivided by curved lines, and …

Copper alloy strap end. Cast sub-rectangular plate of thickness c.3mm with a rectangular tab at one end of thickness 1.6mm with two drilled attachment holes of diameter 3mm. The thicker part of the plate is surmounted by a pair of confronted beast heads with rounded ears and a deeply incised line across the muzzle (cf. Thomas Class B, Type 4); the mask at the outer end is indented between its ears. Thomas notes the muzzled bear mask as a feature which reappears on Anglo-Scandinavian and Scandinavian metalwork from Borre and elsewhere, which would appear to be an apt date for this piec…

Copper alloy brooch fragment. Cast head plate and top knob of a small cruciform brooch. A sub-rectangular plate is surmounted by an integrally cast tapered knob. The plate has a central trapezoid panel standing in slight relief with a central ring and dot of diameter 4mm, and the top of a curved mid bow lies below it. The stub of a catch plate is set behind the centre of the plate and rust stains adjacent suggest the object was deposited with its iron pin (now lost) attached. The edges of the plate are rounded and abraded. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 500-600. Length: 30.8mm, Width…

Copper alloy possible mount fragment. Cast plate with incised and gilt decoration on one face, possibly derived from Salin Style 2 this comprises parallel curving lines and crescentic elements, possibly a bird in profile: the subject is unclear though parts of a creature may more likely be represented than a vermiform subject. Though the flat back would permit its attachment as a mount, this might equally be part of a more complex object, for example a fragment of the head plate of a large brooch.

Copper alloy mount. Cast openwork plate of oval form with engrailed edges and pointed ends, the former following the strands of textured interlace ornament which is possibly of Borre style. The more markedly pointed end bears two comma shaped figures in low relief on its upper surface and may represent a serpent or beast head. The seven round apertures are so regular as to appear drilled or finished with a drill. Two low bumps on the back, the first set at one end and the other off-centre towards the other end, may relate to fixing. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 900-1000. Length:…
