Lead weight. A concavo-convex sub-rectangular weight made by the folding of cast lead sheet of thickness c.1mm into a lump. It is uncertain whether patterning appearing on the convex surface was added to the object or appeared on the centre of the sheet from which it was made. This comprises leaf-like panels of relief ornament with chevrons either side of central ribs, and is most clearly apparent in two zones at right angles to each other; further elements to make up a cruciform pattern may be lost to wear. A pair of low apical knops or stubs project from the top of the object. Lightl…

Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy mount. Cast D-section looped strip. The strip is flattened to form a flat straight-sided tab at one end, with remnant iron traces suggesting a ferrous metal fixing. This is abutted by a zoomorphic moulding probably representing the schematically rendered snout, eyes and ears of a beast. The other end is plain and appears beaten flat, again with straight edges. The finder kindly suggests this may be an early medieval casket handle, though the lack of fixing at both ends may qualify this interpretation. The form is equally apt to serve as the handle of a small vessel, and ot…

Copper alloy brooch fragment. Cast mid bow and lower bow of a cruciform brooch, as kindly identified by the finder. The convex mid bow has horizontal stops above and below. The lower bow continues straight-sided, with a thickened and possibly horizontally divided moulding towards its [present] end, with only a short broken spur beyond this point, possibly at the very start of a flared terminal. The stub of a catch plate remains behind the lower bow. Although the object is heavily abraded, the softness of all moulded detail might suggest the brooch to have been made in a mould taken fro…

Object type: HOOKED TAG
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy hooked tag. A sheet metal teardrop shaped plate with a short backward pointing hook at its base and two stitching holes close to its upper edge. A swastika formed by tiny closely juxtaposed angled stamps appears on the display face. The finder kindly suggests this to be of Read early medieval class A type 1. The appearance of a motif with overtly pagan connotations on an object of a type more usually attributed to post-Conversion contexts is of interest. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 700-900. Length: 19.1mm, Width: 12.3mm, Thickness: 0.8mm, Weight: 0.71gms.

Lead and iron weight. Cast cylindrical lead weight with an iron object capping one end, and with a mark on the opposite end suggesting iron passes through the object, presumably a pin attached to the iron capping. Finely incised lines on the side of the object are apparently in two converging groups, perhaps in a fan shape, but lacking any cross members to suggest a runic inscription. Patinated and corroded. The mass may suggest this to represent six units of 4.43gms, as used in the Viking 'kingdom' of Dublin and York, under whose control Lindsey fell c.865-925. The combination of mate…

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. A straight-sided object with a moulded horizontal ridge and the edge of an openwork design, and with two shallow blind probably drilled pits on its display face. The reddish tint of the metal may be suggestive of an Anglo-Scandinavian date, while irregularities on the reverse may suggest either casual casting or manufacture using an open mould. This could be from one corner of a strap end. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1100. Length: 22.1mm, Width: 13.1mm, Thickness: 3.0mm, Weight: 2.44gms

Lead possible spindle whorl fragment. Cast flat fragment of a discoid weight with a central moulded aperture of diameter 10.6mm; apparently cut or sheared, patinated and abraded.

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a moulded central aperture of diameter 9mm, Walton Rogers form A1. Patinated. The spindle size is at the upper end of the range associated with Early to Middle Saxon whorls, while the mass would permit this to have been used to spin a fine yarn.

Copper alloy possible pin fragment. A cast fragment of a plate with a probably curved outer edge, from an object of estimated original diameter c.50mm. One side bears interlaced decoration with three concentric sub-triangular figures abutting the edge of a curved panel, possibly representing a repeated series of lentoid features between concave-sided triangles. The estimated size might suggest this to be a fragment from the head of a disc-headed pin. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-800. Length: 16.6mm, Width: 15.0mm, Thickness: 1.7mm, Weight: 1.54gms

Copper alloy strap end. Cast zoomorphic strap end, Thomas Class A Type 2. An elongated oval plate has a bifurcated wider slightly indented end with a pair of attachment holes: both retain copper alloy rivets of diameter 1.7mm and length 4mm. The narrower end forms a pointed beast head terminal, with perfunctory relief, now smoothed by wear, representing gradations between muzzle, eyes and ears, and with a thickened triangular zone representing the head behind them. Stamped decoration is arranged in two crossing curves immediately behind the head, and more has been lost to wear across t…

Lead possible weight. Cast discoid weight; patinated overall, possibly chipped. The present mass equates to exactly three units of 4.43gms, as thought to have been used in Viking Dublin, and by extension in the Viking 'kingdom' of York and Dublin. Uneven units appear less frequently in weights of this type, which appear more usually to have observed a duodecimal scale of values ascending in even numbers of units. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 865-925. Diameter: 24.5mm, Weight: 13.29gms

Copper alloy pin head. Cast biconvex pin head of spherical form with a medial circumferential rib. Of the opposed ends, one is presumably a decorative 'finial' and the other the stub of a round section uncollared shank of diameter 1.1mm. The quality of moulding is finer than appears on numerous globular-headed pins of Flixborough type 1, and the shank is also markedly thinner than those of most Middle Saxon hair pins. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-850. Diameter: 8.9mm, Length: 14.6mm, Weight: 2.48gms

Copper alloy brooch fragment. Cast half-round knob from the top or side of a cruciform brooch. There is a basal or inner end groove and a deeper collar. The 'flat' back is actually concave as a result of casting in an open mould. The inner end is flat with a groove with a pit of diameter 1.5mm set in its base. Extensive traces of rust may derive from an iron pin holding components of a composite head together, probably passing into the small hole, or possibly from a corroded iron pin. The cruciform brooch usually appears in burial contexts as part of the Anglian 'national costume' deem…

Copper alloy possible brooch fragment. Cast conical terminal with a round section basal lug, a bevelled base and a conical end with traces of a circumferentially incised groove. A grey tint may indicate lead or tin in the metal mix. This is tentatively suggested to be from the head of a cruciform brooch, as a detached side or top knob of fully rounded form. This reporter would welcome alternative suggestions as to the identification of this piece. Suggested date: possibly Early Medieval, 475-575. Length: 19.0mm, Diameter: 9.3mm, Weight: 5.44gms

Copper alloy strap end. Cast tapered leaf-shaped plate with a stepped end, and with six broad curls in two rows on its display face, Thomas Class A Type 2; heavily worn. If this ever has a beast head terminal it has presumably been lost to wear, along with the attachment holes at the other end. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-850.
