Copper alloy weight. Cast plano-convex weight with a central dimple flanked by grooves on either side; these may suggest the loss of an embedded object with a deeper central part. The mass may suggest this to represent 24 units of 4.43gms, as used at Viking Dublin for the measurement of silver bullion. Lindsey was under control of the Viking 'kingdom' of York and Dublin c.865-925. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-950. Diameter: 37.1mm, Height: 19.6mm, Weight: 106.17gms.

Lead spindle whorl. Cast sub-cylindrical whorl with a moulded aperture of diameter 9.1mm, Walton Rogers form B. Patinated overall. The aperture size may suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian rather than an earlier date, though this is a borderline case. The atypically light weight would make this object suitable for use spinning a yarn. Suggested date: early Medieval, 850-1000. Diameter: 18.9mm, Thickness: 7.7mm, Weight: 15.19gms.

Silver coin fragment. Penny, possibly of Edgar (957-975, King of all England 959-975); the bust style might also admit Edward the Elder of Wessex (899-924) but the obverse reference to England points to the former suggestion. Obverse description: Debased draped and diademed bust left, with large eye. Initial cross pattee. Obverse inscription: +ED(---)ANGL, N is retrograde. Reverse description: Small cross pattee set centrally. Reverse inscription: (--)[?SV]ERTIN(--) Diameter: 20.2mm, Weight: 0.82gms.

Lead weight. Cast discoid weight. One flat face bears moulded or possibly stamped decoration, comprising a reticulated or net-like border and a circular central figure, whose resemblance to a face with eyes and mouth is perhaps fortuitous. The object is worn, with the loss of some clarity from its decoration, and patinated overall. The mass may suggest this to represent four [slightly underweight] units of 4.07gms, as used for transactions in silver bullion in Viking-Age Scandinavia. The decoration of such weights is occasionally reported, often entailing the embedding of objects of ot…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast whorl with a central slightly tapered moulded aperture of diameter 10-11.5mm, cylindrical with a slightly curved base placing this between Walton Rogers forms A1 and B. Patinated overall. The aperture size may suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian date while the mass indicates a primary use for plying cord. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diameter: 22.5mm, Thickness: 16.8mm, Weight: 49.35gms.

Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fine grained dense grey stone, possible rubber or whetstone. Flat-sided oval ended river-washed pebble; one end chipped. The surface is possibly smoothed by wear overall. The form is probably natural and the stone derived from glacial drift. This might have been used as an improvised polisher for organic materials, including textiles, or alternatively as a whetstone. The use of adventitiously recovered stones for such functions is especially characteristic of the Anglo-Saxon period, sandwiched as it is between eras characterised by more systematic exploitation and marketing of stones a…

Copper alloy possible vessel repair patch. A composite object comprising at least two layers of sheet metal of thickness 0.8-0.9mm thickness and a third thicker (c.1mm) plate or rove which appears to have secured a rivet passing through the rest. The flattened and presumably burred rivet head is of c.5.5mm diameter, and it passes at right angles through the two overlapping tongues of sheet. It appears from the bowing of the metal to have been driven through rather than occupying a drilled hole. The smaller thicker plate serving as a rove for this rivet bears linear features, possibly …

Copper alloy mount. Flat sub-triangular plate with a rounded lug at its apex with a drilled aperture of diameter 7.4mm. A countersunk hole of diameter 2.8mm and aperture diameter c.2mm is set towards each of the lower corners, and one retains a probably iron rivet of diameter c. 2.7mm and length c.3.2mm. Three broad diagonally incised lines pass across one side of the plate, clear of the rivets. The object probably functioned as an escutcheon to permit the suspension of a vessel. The use of iron rivets, if this material identification is sustained, allies this to work of the Early Medi…

Copper alloy sleeve clasp fragment. Cast bar with a possibly denticulated edge and part of either a fixing or fastening hole in the opposite side, Hines Form b.

Copper alloy sleeve clasp. Cast hook element from a pair of sleeve clasps of Hines Form B12. A cast rectangular bar with three rounded lugs forb stitched attachment [two now lost], each with a drilled hole of diameter c.3mm, and the stub of a hook on the opposite long edge. Each attachment lug sprang from a square panel, and the zones between panels are occupied by five or six finely incised parallel lines. Sleeve clasps are associated with burial costume of Anglian style, and their appearance is often indicative of a female burial. Save for the broken lugs and hook, this object is in …

Lead weight. Cast discoid weight. One side has a centrally raised patch of rougher texture than the rest of the surface - which is itself far from smooth. The other side has a cavity measuring c.6mm by 5.5mm by 4mm deep. Patinated overall. The mass may suggest this to represent four [slightly underweight] Scandinavian Viking Age units of 4.07gms, as used for silver bullion transactions. The cavity may be an adventitious casting flaw, or might mark the loss of an embedded object. In the latter case, this might have been a lightweight object such as an amber bead to carry the mass up to …

Copper alloy strap end. Small tongue-shaped strap end with a central longitudinal ridge , a split end, and with two rivets of diameter 1.8mm and length 3.5mm passing through its inner end, Thomas Class E Type 3. There are traces of diagonal or herringbone relief decoration to either side of the central ridge. The distribution of the type centres on the Danelaw and the Irish Sea region, which is of interest given the position of Lindsey under the Viking 'kingdom' of York and Dublin.

Copper alloy strap fitting. Small cast rectangular frame at the end of a narrow pointed plate of plano-convex section. The pointed end bears a pair of shallow pits and two or three diagonal grooves, all very worn but still reminiscent of the zoomorphic decoration of Middle Saxon ends of Thomas Class A. Lacking provision for attachment or for the operation of a pin, this is probably distinct from those medieval buckles cast with an integral plate. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-850. Length: 35mm, Width: 11.5mm, Thickness: 2.7mm, Weight: 2.22gms.
