Object type: BRIDLE FITTING
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy possible bridle fitting. Cast ring of rounded section with an integrally cast projection of oval section which projects at an angle from the side of the ring, now broken, and possibly leading towards a second loop. The ring is thinned by internal wear approximately opposite the lug. The metal has a reddish tint often associated with metalwork of the Anglo-Scandinavian period. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 1000-1100. Diameter: 27.8mm, Length (as found): 31.3mm, Band Width: 3.3mm, Band Thickness: 3.2mm, Weight: 7.16gms

Copper alloy pendant. Cast slightly concavo-convex disc with a cast suspension loop with aperture at right angles to the display plane, and with a central round hole for a stone [now lost]. A field of curvilinear and probably representational interlace occupies the display face between flat plain inner and outer borders. Gilding appears on both sides and on the loop; the combination of interlace and a gilded finish is associated with the Middle Saxon 8th century. However, the design of a pendant with central stone looks back to the 7th-century 'Final Phase' of furnished burial, albeit …

Copper alloy pin. Cast pin with a facetted head with two large and eleven smaller rhomboid facets, above a collar which separates it from a round section shank [of diameter 2.8mm] which is of unvaried form insofar as it survives, Flixborough type 231. Each smaller facet bears a single ring-and-dot of diameter 2.6mm, each with a prominent dot and small ring; the larger facets bear four ring-and-dot in a symmetrical arrangement. This is a little larger, about three times heavier, and also more decorated, than most pins of this form. This might suggest a different use, albeit still one wh…

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy strap fitting. Cast oval round section [diameter 3.7mm] loop of length 38.6mm and width 22mm which passes through a round hole of diameter 9mm at the rounded part of a straight-sided plate of thickness 2mm which has been bent back on itself; the other end of the plate as it now appears is straight. The plate was made as a long rectangular strip with a central U-shaped cut-out, and was then bent round the site of the cut-out so its two ends lay almost side by side and in the same plane, thereby forming a round hole. This operation secured the loop, but leaves some play and …

County: Lincolnshire

Lead possible weight. Cast flat sub-discoid weight; indented on one side to achieve its current form, probably fortuitously; with a somewhat uneven upper surface, patinated. A tiny [length 2mm] pierced mark appears off-centre. The mass equates to almost exactly three units of 4.43gms, a module employed in Viking Age Dublin for transactions of silver bullion, and perhaps by extension in the Viking 'kingdom' of York and Dublin under which Lindsey fell c.865-925. This was a duodecimal system, and most weights thought to respect it were of even multiples of units: i.e. 2, 4, 6 - also equiv…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy probable ear ring. Sheet metal penannular object with an expanded central part and one pointed end and one hooked sharp narrow end. Eighteen circular stamps, each resembling a small [diameter c.1.2mm] ring-and-dot within a larger [diameter 2.3mm] rounded hollow or pit. The use of ring and dot decoration - particularly noted amongst female dress accessories such as hair pins - is seen as part of a suite of features differentiating later 9th-century Viking from Anglo-Saxon styles, a topic explored by David Haldenby in a series of published and on-line papers. The finder conc…

Copper alloy and iron stirrup mount. Cast trapezoid openwork plate with an in-turned basal edge or flange bearing the rusted stubs of two iron fixing pins passing through drilled holes, with a third at one corner and its counterpart perhaps lost in antiquity, as its lodgement is unstained by rust. This may be a member of Williams Class B Type 1 Group 1. A central element now has a vulpine or fox-like appearance, with a drilled hole through each of two triangular ears above a mask with a rust-stained hole set centrally at its lower edge. Lentoid eyes may be indicated on the mask. It is …

Copper alloy strap fitting. Cast sub-rectangular plate with an integrally cast oval loop at one end. The back of the plate, which is slightly rough as if never intended to be viewed, bears a worn rib along either side, with a small spur or stop at its end on one side. The form is not diagnostic and there is no decoration, but accompanying objects, including a decorated strap fitting of essentially similar form, are ascribed to the Anglo-Scandinavian period. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Length: 26.6mm, Width: 14.6mm, Thickness (plate, clear of loop and ridges): 2.3mm, Weig…

Copper alloy strap fitting. Cast rectangular loop with an attached trapezoidal plate bearing a simple interlaced strap motif which is deeply incised within a border. Dark material appears trapped within the incised lines, while slight traces of white metal plating appear towards the narrower end of the display face and towards the other broader end on its back. These traces may suggest an original silver finish with darkened detail, comparable with strap ends of the Middle Saxon period. The heavier construction might in this case suggest a slightly later, Anglo-Scandinavian, date. A dr…

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Silver hooked tag. Sub-triangular sheet metal tag with a broad plate tapering to a small backward pointing hook with its end curled. A torn upper edge might suggest loss of fastening holes. The display face bears a crudely incised comma shaped motif which may aspire to be a simple interlace, all within an equally crudely incised border. Probably of Read early medieval Class A Type 1. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. In view of its age and material the object is to be submitted to the Treasure process, ref. 2017 T324. Length: 31.7mm, Width: 15.5mm, Thickness: 0.3mm, Weight: 0.95gms

Lead possible weight. Cast object, probably originally discoid, with a sunken oval panel of length 7mm on one side, and subsequently hammered to an irregular sub-rectangular form, probably with further post-depositional damage; patinated. The mass may suggest this to represent four units of 4.07gms, as used in Viking Age Scandinavia for silver bullion transactions. The sunken panel might indicate the loss of an embedded object, a common feature of weights of the period, though it may per se have distinguished this object from others. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000, Length: 2…

Copper alloy stirrup mount. Cast sub-triangular zoomorphic mount, Williams Class A type 8. The object's form is defined by symmetrically interlaced creatures. At the apex of the triangle is a small zoomorphic beast head with rounded flat-ended snout, eyes either side of a nasal ridge, and with ears flattened back suggested by continuation either side of a small [diameter 2.4mm] drilled aperture. The line of these features may be followed as strands bulging from either side of the object with moulded apertures on their inner sides. The larger part of the design is formed by symmetricall…

Copper alloy possible tweezers fragment. A sheet metal strip, straight-sided and slightly increasing in its width towards a gently bent end with a more sharply bent terminal. The narrower end bears an incised groove next to a ridge; the object has apparently broken across a corresponding groove on the other side of the ridge. A very finely incised line serves as a border parallel to either long edge. Suggested date: possibly Early Medieval, 450-850. Length: 26.5mm, Width: 8.5mm, Thickness: 1.1mm, Weight: 1.80gms

Silver and copper alloy unidentified object. A melted object of bubbled silver with brown material adhering, and with a small [diameter 3mm] copper alloy loop embedded and projecting. The object is massier at that end with the embedded object. Though its present form is unhelpful, the proximity of burnt objects suggestive of Early Anglo-Saxon cremation burials might suggest a significant context. The form, however, would not support submission to the Treasure process. Suggested date: possibly Early Medieval, 450-600. Length: 21.8mm, Width: 13.1mm, Thickness: 8.5mm, Weight: 5.30gms

In profile the object now exhibits slight curvature, though whether this is an original feature is uncertain. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 500-700.
