Lead spindle whorl. Cast whorl of plano-convex profile with a central moulded aperture of diameter 11.4mm, Walton Rogers form A1; patinated. The ample sized spindle hole suggests an Anglo-Scandinavian date, while the mass may suggest a primary function plying cord. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diameter: 34.8mm, Thickness: 7.3mm, Weight: 54.96gms

White metal possible ingot. Cast oval fragment of a dense dark grey metal. There are three aligned angled slashes on one side, and multiple annular stamps of diameter 4mm (at least two) and of diameter 2mm (at least three) on the other side. The Viking Age predilection for annular or ring-and-dot decoration - as for example, on racket headed pins of the 9th century (cf D. Haldenby, various dates, re Cottam, East Riding of Yorkshire) - might suggest a broad affinity, or perhaps a function as a casual trial piece. The object might also relate to a class of dark pellet-like ingots intermi…

Pottery. Fine black fabric with rare flint chips to length 4mm and occasional voids; rim sherd from a hand made globular vessel with a very slightly beaded rim a wall slightly thickened below the rim [by 2mm], and with an estimated rim diameter of c.80mm. The outer surface is smooth, probably burnished. Jane Young has kindly identified the fabric as of Early Anglo-Saxon date. Vessels of this size and form accompanied inhumation burials in the Anglo-Saxon cemetery at Castledyke South, Barton upon Humber, dated to between the late 5th and later 7th centuries (Didsbury, in Drinkall and Fo…

Copper alloy brooch fragment. Cast head from a florid cruciform brooch with a lunate or pelta-shaped end to each arm of its head [one lost]. These semi-circular terminals spring from short rectilinear arms with a single step, which in turn project from an almost plain flat rectangular plate. Its decoration comprises a vertical line of small [c.1mm] stamped circles along its outer edges. A narrow rectangular stop of triangular profile below the rectangular part of the head plate separates it from a curved protruding mid bow which bears three holes of diameter 4.5mm-2.5mm, drilled at ang…

Copper alloy pin. Cast pin with a small polyhedral head with four flattened sides which each bear a drilled dot of diameter 0.8mm and a slightly swollen mid-part to its shank, Flixborough type 222. The flat sides to the head have a sharp aris between them, but the top is an unadorned flat rhomboid surface with a triangular facet abutting each of its sides. The pin is bent just below the slightly thicker part of the shank, and its tip is lost. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 800-850. Length (as found): 33.3mm, Diameter (shank): 2.2mm, Width at head: 2.8mm, Thickness at head: 3.0mm, Wei…

Copper alloy possible strap end fragment. Cast zoomorphic terminal, perhaps from a strap end of narrow but otherwise indeterminate form. The putative end is slightly expanded in width. There is a marked step behind what appears as the muzzle of a beast with large round eyes on either side and a flat triangular front to its head. The object is broken at the point where its thickness had diminished to c.2mm. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 900-1000. Length: 12.3mm, Width: 7.3mm, Thickness/Height: 4.4mm, Weight: 1.39gms

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead possible game piece. Cast pyramidal object with a trapezoid base which is markedly hollowed underneath, and ridges ascending where its other four sides meet. Patinated. The mass does not immediately suggest a function as a weight, and an interpretation as a playing piece may be more apt (Biggs and Withers 2000, page 33 nos 80-84). A comparable form is, however, presented amongst weights from Middle Saxon Flixborough (Wastling , L.M. 'Lead and lead alloy mensuration weights', in Evans, D.H. and Loveluck, C., Life and Economy at Early Flixborough, Excavations at Flixborough volume 2…

Copper alloy possible brooch fragment. Cast near straight-sided object of plano-convex section with parallel sides and a flattened central longitudinal keel; the object is slightly thinner towards one end. The other, thicker, end bears a pair of indented stops, with a curvilinear feature - perhaps representing an eye or nostril - discernible to one side. It is suggested this may be part of the lower bow of an Anglo-Saxon cruciform brooch, towards a zoomorphic terminal. Abraded. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 500-600. Length: 31mm, Width: 13.9mm, Thickness: 4.3mm, Weight: 8.19gms

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire

Silver unidentified object. Fragment of a cast round section rod with two or more circumferentially incised bands of width 0.5mm which may retain inlay traces. Both ends are indented by up to 0.7mm, and there is a deep gouge in one side. The black surface and density may suggest this to be a fragment from a bead-like object made of silver, though the object lacks a stringing hole. The decorative inlay of silver objects is characteristic of the Middle Saxon period, though the condition of this fragment vitiates further comment. Suggested date: possibly Early Medieval, 700-850. In view o…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast sub-cylindrical whorl with a central moulded aperture ofdiameter 13.5mm, cf. Walton Rogers form B. The whorl bulges slightly, if evenly, around its circumference though its flat sides are of equal size; patinated. The mass may suggest a primary use plying cord. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 950-1100. Diameter: 30.8mm, Thickness: 10mm, Weight: 53.50gms.

Lead spindle whorl. Cast sub-cylindrical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 12.5mm, probably Walton Rogers form B. Shrinkage lines on the upper surface indicate the whorl was cast in an open mould; patinated. The mass may suggest a primary use plying cord; this object is larger than most of the similar examples seen by this reporter. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 950-1100.

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a moulded aperture of diameter c.11mm, Walton Rogers form A1. Patinated, with the hole subsequently distorted by the forceful insertion of a straight-sided object. This object is perhaps a cast copy of a cattle femur caput whorl, a principally early medieval type. Though of a form lending itself to casting in an open mould, this example has an off-centre aperture and might have been discarded before use after an inept attempt to produce a heavier version of the bone whorl. The aperture size may suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian rather than a…

Copper alloy bell. Conical bell made by rolling and folding a sheet of metal, with an overlapping seam and four overlapping leaves at its wider end and an oval loop with a drilled aperture of diameter 2.5mm for suspension at the other end. The form relates to a pyramidal form of animal bells ascribed to Viking influence, though in the Danelaw mundane objects which nod to Scandinavian influence may characterise a persistent Anglo-Scandinavian cast to material culture. The finder discerns a separate clapper within; this reporter does not. Suggested date: Early Medieval to Medieval, 1000…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast cylindrical whorl with a moulded aperture of diameter 6mm, Walton Rogers form B; patinated. The small spindle size would make an Anglo-Saxon date possible, though the cylindrical form is more usually associated with Anglo-Scandinavian contexts. The mass would permit this to be used to spin a yarn. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-1000. Diameter: 20.0mm, Thickness: 7.1mm, Weight: 19.58gms.

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with tall sides and an off-centre moulded aperture of diameter 9.7-10.3mm, Walton Rogers form A1; patinated overall. Shrinkage of the upper, flat, surface has arisen from casting in an open mould. Small nicks on the side appear to represent damage incurred in antiquity; some might relate to conversion of the whorl to a line weight with a tying notch. The ample spindle hole may suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian date. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diameter: 24.0mm, Thickness: 12.7mm, Weight: 37.10gms

Lead weight. A flat disc probably cut from cast sheet, with adjacent angular facets intruding on a circular form and perhaps arising from fine adjustment of size and mass; patinated overall. The mass may suggest this to represent eight [slightly overweight] units of 4.07gms, as used in Scandinavia for silver bullion transactions. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000.

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a tapered moulded aperture of diameter 14.3-11.1mm, Walton Rogers form A1. A pair of deep cuts on the lower (convex) side may signal conversion of a whorl to a line weight with tying notches, which has lightly distorted it. Patinated overall. The provision for a thick spindle probably indicates an Anglo-Scandinavian date. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diameter: 30.4mm, Thickness: 9.6mm, Weight: 42.12gms
