Copper alloy strap end. A weighty cast strap end with a split inner end, an expanded mid--part and tapered towards a massy solid terminal, Thomas Class F. A longitudinal panel appears on both sides, the better preserved retaining a possibly reticulated interlaced pattern within a broad plain border. The terminal features a projecting border and a rounded end, with a small triangular projection on one broad face only. The inner end bears six dots of inlay on either side, again suggesting an originally bilateral scheme of decoration. This type of strap end is linked to the Viking distrib…

Object type: NAIL CLEANER
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy probable nail cleaner. A narrow straight-sided strip with a point at either end, one longer and one shorter. The longer point may imitate the form of an angle-backed knife, an Anglo-Saxon and later form, while the shorter point is a downward angled triangle, p[erhaps a perfunctory tang for the 'knife'. The resemblance to a miniature tool or weapon may not be fortuitous, and is characteristic of both real and symbolic grooming tools accompanying early Anglo-Saxon cremation burials. The object is thickest in the middle, and thinned, perhaps by use, towards its ends. Suggeste…

Copper alloy possible mount fragment. A small fragment from a cast object with curvilinear interlaced elements, possibly openwork, and with an off-centre fixing hole of diameter 2.5mm - if this is not merely a further part of a decorative design. The finder kindly suggests a Saxon date, and the reddish tint of the metal is indeed characteristic of Anglo-Scandinavian metalwork from the region. Its partial survival may tend to increase a vaguely zoomorphic appearance: to this reporter, the object appears like a grazing animal inverted [not a typical choice for the Anglo-Scandinavian craf…

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead possible weight. Cast cylindrical weight, with numerous crescentic impressions on its underside [as cast], which was probably uneven with an intermittently upstanding rim. Patinated. The mass might suggest this to have represented ten Viking-Age units, as used for silver bullion transactions, though the correspondence with the contemporary Danish and Norse systems is less exact than is normally acceptable to this reporter. The castellated edge might alternatively point to this being a playing piece for a game such as Hnafetafl, in which a King was distinguished from plainer pieces…

Iron and copper alloy possible stirrup mount. An iron plate or frame, possibly of trapezoid hexagonal form (cf. Williams' Class A Type 5) or circular with a flattened base, and with a central zone occupied by a sub-rectangular component, whether made in one piece with the outer frame or inserted is uncertain. From the front it might appear as a sub-circular frame with a rectangular plate superimposed. Three flat-headed copper alloy studs [with heads of diameter c.11mm] are set approximately centrally to the putative central plate, and presumably mark its display side. When the object i…

Copper alloy possible weight. Cast globular to plano-convex rounded lump, with a flat side probably produced by a robust hammer strike. The convex face is deeply gouged, though this is thought to have distorted rather than removed its fabric. The mass exactly equates to three units of 4.07gms, as used in Viking Age Denmark for transactions of silver bullion. Both the Danish and Norse systems were duodecimal, and so uneven numbers of units appear less frequently than the even, though as one half of an ora/ore [a contemporary and underweight ounce] a value of three units should not be un…

: Copper alloy hooked tag. A circular sheet metal tag with a short backward pointing hook and two drilled holes near its upper edge, Read early medieval Class A Type 2. A rouletted border passes around the plate and the same tool was used to draw a plain cross on the display face of the plate; the upright bar passes between the attachment holes. The good condition of this object may hint at some particularly localised conditions, as most finds reported along with it, mostly more recent, are in much worse condition.

Lead probable weight. Cast hemispherical object, possibly with a finely incised foot ring, patinated. The mass may suggest this to represent six units of 4.07gms, as employed by the Danish Viking-Age system of weights governing transactions in silver bullion. This also equates to one ore/ora, the equivalent to the ounce in that system. The hemispherical form is also known from playing pieces made in various materials, and used for board games popular at much the same period such as Hnafetafl. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-950. Diameter: 20mm, Thickness: 11.2mm, Weight: 23.96gms

Copper alloy stirrup mount fragment. Cast plate with a lipped or flanged lower edge which retains ferrous corrosion and possibly two iron fixing pins. Above this, the sides diverge very slightly, the object being broken jaggedly at the point where an element of decoration protrudes. The plate that remains bears crudely incised double line borders which run well within its edges. Williams Class A Type 1. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 1000-1100.

Iron and silver knife fragment. Wrought iron mid-part of a whittle tanged knife blade, with broken stubs protruding from the ends of a silver sleeve or bolster set between the blade and the handle into which the tang passed. The blade is identified by its thick V section while the tang was of rectangular or square section. The silver sleeve is cylindrical and bears incised decoration overall. This is confined by billeted borders: at the blade end, where the end of the cylinder appears as an unadorned flat surface, this is plain, though limited by a double line border; at the other end,…

Copper alloy possible scabbard chape fragment. A cast sub-triangular plate with the relict of one of a probable pair of spurs at its wider end, which is bevelled, and possibly broken along its other edges. Plain borders, slightly raised, appear along one side and across the wider end of the object, and these enclose a curvilinear element of moulded decoration. From its form, this might alternatively be part of a stirrup mount; a reddish tint is often characteristic of Anglo-Scandinavian metalwork. Extremely abraded, as are many finds reported from the vicinity. Suggested date: Early Me…

Lead weight. Cast discoid weight, possibly marked on one flat surface by the loss of a thin embedded object. Patinated. The mass, as it now stands, could permit this to have served to represent a slightly overweight six units as used in Viking Age Denmark [of 4.07gms], or six slightly underweight units as used in Viking Age Dublin and its dependencies, including Viking York [of 4.43gms], both equating to one ora/ore, roughly equivalent to an ounce. The correspondence with these systems is less exact than is normally required by this reporter to advance this interpretation, though this …

Lead possible spindle whorl. Cast cylindrical flat-sided whorl with a central moulded and tapered aperture of diameter 12.2-11.3mm, Walton Rogers form B. Patinated. There may be a tying groove on one side, which might signal the conversion of whorl to weight. The mass points to a primary function plying cord, while the aperture size may suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian date.

Copper alloy stirrup mount fragment. A cast concavo-convex object, approaching conical form, of which the hollow side is thought to engage with a stirrup. On one side, the object bears a moulded chevron oriented towards a horizontal rib with two low rounded horns projecting from its ends, the overall effect being vaguely anthropomorphic. The metal has a reddish cast often associated with Anglo-Scandinavian metalwork. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 1000-1100. Length: 15.6mm, Width: 13.0mm, Thickness: 12.0mm, Weight: 6.39gms
