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…

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.

Pottery. Grey reduced fabric with abundant calcareous inclusions to length 1mm and sparse micaceous inclusions to a length of 1.5mm, possibly handmade, from the wall of a globular vessel. The appearance of mica may suggest a non-local fabric. The resultant 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: 10.3mm, Weight: 25.17gms.

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. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Length: 103.6mm, Width: 20.1mm, Thickness: 16.4mm, Weight: 9.59gms

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…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with moulded central aperture of diameter 6.5mm, Walton Rogers form A1. Patinated overall. Rusty material is deposited in the sides of the hole. Slight shrinkage lines in the upper surface may suggest manufacture in an open mould. The mass would permit this to be used to spin a fine yarn. The small aperture is characteristic of an Anglo-Saxon date. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-850. Diameter: 19.7mm, Thickness: 6mm, Weight: 10.37gms.

Lead possible weight. Cast sub-rectangular plano-convex object of flattened pyramidal form; lightly patinated. The mass may equate to one [slightly overweight] unit of 4.43gms, as used in Viking Dublin, and, by extension, recurring in those parts of the Danelaw subject to the Viking 'kingdom' of York and Dublin, c.865-925. Where the use of weights observing this system is suspected, they seem to more usually represent even multiples of this module (i.e. 2,4 or 6 units and so on). The correspondence with the postulated modile is less exact than is usually the case when this dating and i…

: Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 12.3mm, Walton Rogers form A1. A sunken ring on the flat upper surface may indicate shrinkage during manufacture in an open mould. Patinated overall. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000.

Lead spindle whorl. Cast - or possibly miscast - plano-convex whorl with a moulded aperture of diameter10.6mm. Patinated overall. At least where the profile is regular this resembles Walton Rogers form A1. The aperture size may suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian date. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diameter: 24.9mm, Thickness: 11.4mm, Weight: 28.91gms.

Lead possible spindle whorl. Cast conical whorl or weight with one larger and one smaller flat side and moulded tapered aperture of maximum diameter 6.3mm whose rectangular shape on the narrower side may suggest the use of a hand made nail as a former. There are broad vertical flutes around about half the circumference. Patinated overall. The form compares with Walton Rogers form A2, and the aperture size would be apt to a light spindle of Anglo-Saxon type. Its mass would permit use for spinning a fine yarn. An alternative use as a weight might also be entertained. Suggested date: Earl…

Copper alloy mount fragment. Cast plate with rounded protrusions from its edges, apparently representing the head of a beast combining attributes of horse and dragon. Three protruberances mark the jaws or snout, with four more depicting the head from its brow to a crest or ears. Well clear of the border, a closely spaced but crudely executed series of punched dots, each of diameter c.1mm, follows the outline, with spurs of three or more dots linking it to each of the projecting features. The dots appear yellowish, though there is scant other indication of any inlay associated with them…

Copper alloy mount fragment. Cast openwork plate, comprising a Greek crosshead within an arc, a slightly expanding cross shaft with a T-shaped terminal and with curvilinear interlace figures in two sub-trapezoid panels forming a field or ground for the cross, as relicts of a more extensive series; the more complete figure appears developed from a strand intruding from its border. The 'Celtic' style of cross and the accompanying details tend to suggest an association with Northumbrian influence over the style of Anglo-Saxon Christianity. The use of openwork may suggest a surface was to…
