Record ID: NLM-6D2E8B
Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Ferruginous limestone probable whetstone fragment. Stone shaped like an oversized finger with one markedly smoothed broad surface which is lightly dished by wear and lightly scored by diagonal and transverse grooves suggestive of the sharpening of pointed pins or needles. Limited patches of wear have also partially smoothed the opposite face. Broken raggedly at its wider end. The use of a relatively local stone is likely, which is characteristic of hones of the Later Iron Age to Early Medieval periods. Accompanying material tends to point to the later part of this date-range. Suggested…

Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fine grained compacted sandstone whetstone fragment. A rectangular section fragment probably from the middle of a whetstone, possibly of hog-backed formAll the faces save for the broken ends are smoothed by wear. Two faces meeting at an obtuse angle are likely to mark the top of the whetstone, and a dished face opposite these faces its most heavily used and worn face. The selection of a local [to northern Britain] rather than an imported stone may suggest a pre-Viking date. The hog-backed form in such stones occurs amongst early medieval finds at Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire (For…

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A group of three iron ploughshares reported as having been found together, one being inserted into the recess of another. The objects range in size from length 312mm to length 250mm, one being markedly smaller than the others. All three were found covered with a fine dark brown sandy silt which included fragments of calcined bone, which has been left undisturbed pending further investigation. The circumstances of the discovery, as well as ongoing research into the site, commend this as a find of note. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 872-873. 1: Iron ploughshare. Wrought iron ploughsha…

Copper alloy hooked tag. Sheet metal oval plate of thickness 0.7mm with two drilled attachment holes of diameter 2mm and a short sharp hook with a backward-pointing point, Read early medieval Class A Type 2. A cross formed of a double line of short punch marks is set centrally with its upper member passing between the stitching holes, and enclosed by a border comprising two closely juxtaposed rows of circular stamps. There is the suspicion of a more finely incised border on one side of the reverse of the plate, which is otherwise plain. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-850. Length:…

Copper alloy strap end, as kindly identified by the finder. Thick cast sub-rectangular openwork plate with a pair of rivets of length c.6.5mm [one partly lost] on the back for attachment to the strap; the remaining rivet is bent over towards the outer end of the object. The plate has a weighty terminal of three integrally cast and flat-backed spherical bosses, which bring its maximum thickness here to 7.6mm. There are then three pairs of moulded holes and a smaller drilled hole of diameter 2mm, the latter probably a supplementary fixing point, on the rest of the plate. A trefoil termin…

Copper alloy strap end. Cast U shaped or tongue shaped strap end with a slightly thinned inner end with two drilled attachment holes of diameter 2.3mm, one torn. The display face bears a series of deep longitudinal grooves, though these seem to drift from the medial alignment and they might even represent entirely fortuitous damage. If these surface features are accepted as decorative, the object might bear comparison with Thomas Class E Type 3 strap ends. The distribution of these is biased towards the eastern Danelaw and the Irish Sea littoral Viking rule of the 'Kingdom' of York and…

Lead weight. Cast cylindrical weight with a possibly drilled aperture in its base, which is slightly sunken, probably shrinkage from being uppermost when the object was cast in an open mould; patinated. The mass may suggest this to represent six [slightly overweight] Viking Age units of 4.07gms, or one overweight ora/ore, the contemporary equivalent of the ounce. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diameter: 16.7mm, Height: 15.0mm, Weight: 25.34gms

Lead weight. Cast conical weight wih a flat base bevelled roughly at its edge and with a flattened apex. A slight hollowing of the base may arise from casting in an open mould; patinated. The mass may suggest this to represent six units of 4.43gms, as used in Viking Dublin for transactions of silver bullion. Lindsey lay under the control of the Viking 'kingdom'of York and Dublin c.865-925. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-950. Diameter: 18.3mm, Height: 17.7mm, Weight: 26.53gms

Lead spindle whorl. Cast cylindrical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 9mm, Walton Rogers form B. One side bears an intermittent series of fine and closely spaced radial lines which may be impressed, possibly from a small ribbed fossil such as an ammonite, while the metal cooled in an open mould. These marks confer a faintly vermiform segmented appearance. A fossil may alternatively have been used to form the mould. Patinated. The spindle hole falls at the upper end of the range which might qualify this as of Anglo-Saxon date. Walton Rogers' form B whorls occur in 8th-…

Lead possible weight. Cast conical weight with a central longitudinal aperture of estimated diameter c.7mm; patinated. The object is lightly squashed. The mass does not equate to that of weights recorded from the waterside sites of Medieval London, but could suggest this to represent six [slightly underweight] Scandinavian Viking age units of 4.07gms, as used for silver bullion transactions, an amount also amounting to one ore/ora, the contemporary equivalent to the ounce. An alternative function as a spindle whorl of Walton Rogers form A2, of much the same period, might also be entert…

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pottery. Grey reduced fabric with organic temper which has left long voids in the fabric and with very sparse mica inclusions to a length of 1mm, probably handmade and from the wall of a globular vessel. The appearance of mica may suggest a non-local fabric. The fabric is darker at its thicker part outside and at its thinner part within. The sparkling finish is comparable to that of urns and pots used at the local Anglo-Saxon cemeteries of Fonaby and Cleatham. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 450-700. Thickness: 11.7mm, Weight: 14.15gms.

Copper alloy mount fragment. Flat plate with straight and slightl convergent sides and a straight end between them; broken along two other straight edges. The display face bears an incised curvilinear image of the neck and head of a dragon or beast with upturned snout, open jaws and a long trail behind a large D-shaped eye. The body is perhaps scaled, indicated by a series of comma shaped cuts along its neck. The beast appears against a ground of finely executed cross hatch producing a field of delicate rhomboid daiperwork. There ias also an incised border following the outer edge of t…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a medial moulded aperture of diameter 7.5mm with a larger upper and a smaller lower flat faces, Walton Rogers form A2. The object is unusually thin and well finished. A line of faint punch marks follows the outer edge on the upper surface, possibly produced by teeth and perhaps even signalling the temporary conversion of spinster's whorl to teething ring. The mass may suggest a primary function plying cord. The aperture size would allow an Anglo-Saxon date. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-850. Diameter: 34mm, Thickness: 7.8mm, Weigh…

Bone pin beater. Naturally formed large mammal limb bone, trimmed to a rounded point and smoothed and glossed by wear and handling. The gloss of the shaft towards its tip in particular suggests use as a textile working tool. Single ended simple weaving tools are a class linked to the Anglo-Scandinavian use of the vertical loom.

Silver ingot. An oval lump of dense white metal with longitudinal hammered facets apparent on those parts of its surface undisturbed by heavy and probably adventitious and recent gouges. The mass may equate to seven Scandinavian units of 4.07gms, as used for silver bullion transactions. In other terms, it is also close - slightly overweight - to both the Roman uncia, possibly used by the Anglo-Saxons, and also to the modern averdepois ounce. In view of the suspected material, the object is to be submitted to the Treasure process, reference TBC, with a view to laboratory confirmation of…
