Silver ingot. A fragment of hack-silver with casually incised or stamped decoration on one side, with short [c.1.5mm] slashes forming the strands of an interlaced motif, and with about fourteen small [diameter c.1.3mm or less] circular pits along a crooked element set apart from the rest. The ends of the object have been severed by three angled cuts executed from the plain back and its longest straight edge by another, with some uncertainty as to whether a sub-trapezoid aperture cut from the decorated side is original to the object being dismantled or part of the process of its destruc…

Copper alloy pendant. A thick [2.1mm] cast disc with an incised design on one side, comprising two converging lines with two pairs of lines above and to either side, possibly a very schematic Victory through whose head the suspension hole has been cut. The object is pierced or punched by a triangular-section point, probably from the decorated side as metal has spalled way on the plain side. The edges of the disc have subsequently been crimped to reduce a discoid object to sub-triangular form, this executed with considerable force to bend such a thick flan. The appearance is of a crudel…

Copper alloy pin fragment. Cast pin with a globular head with incised slashes on its upper part and a drilled pit of diameter 1.5mm diameter occupying a flattened top of diameter 3.5mm, and so appearing like a ring-and-dot, all above a collar which separates it from a round section shank of diameter 2.2mm which appears to expand very slightly from the collar to the current end; cf. Flixborough types 131 and 132. The lower shank is lost. The slashed decoration is slightly angled but does not actually travel diagonally across the whole head, and so departs from 'wrythen' convention. Prob…

Copper alloy mount. Rhomboid plate of thick [0.6mm] sheet metal with a near-circular expanded lobe at either end, each with a drilled fixing hole of diameter 2.6mm. An incised panel of decoration comprises a single line border which follows the line of the sides of the object but which stops at either end, at first sight framing a simple interlaced pattern of intersecting hand-drawn loops. In fact, each border line turns at an acute angle at its end and it is their continuations which form the pattern. The finder kindly suggests a function as a belt stiffener. The style is indeed compa…

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead spindle whorl. Cast whorl of plano-convex form with a central moulded aperture of diameter 10mm, Walton Rogers form A1, probably cast in an open mould. The lower convex part of the whorl may have the rim of the hole emphasised in low relief with possibly projecting radial elements, though there are equally indications of poor casting here. Together with the form, the ample spindle hole may suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian date, though unusually, the object lacks surface patina. The mass tends to suggest a primary function plying cord. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diamet…

Object type: ANNULAR BROOCH

County: North East Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy annular brooch fragment. One half of a lightweight sheet metal broad banded annular brooch, torn at either end. The band is decorated by a series of punched dots set equidistantly from each other in two rows which follow the outer edges. This appears to be a crude contemporary imitation of an annular brooch of Anglian style, with more formal stamped decoration represented by the dots. The light fabric is entirely unsuitable to serve as a dress fastener, and was probably equally unsuited to perform other roles in the costume of the time such as chatelaine rings or bag fitti…

Copper alloy brooch. Cast small long brooch in particularly good condition, suggesting its recent disturbance from a sealed context - for this artefact type, most likely the grave of an adult Anglo-Saxon woman. A cruciform head plate of cross potent form has paired grooves at the ends of its side arms and the same motif repeated with an intervening space on its top arm. The lower arm is truncated, and serves as the origin point for a convex curved mid bow. At its top, this has a pair of triangular cut-outs or stops at its sides and a more emphatic pair of horizontal grooves at its base…

Copper alloy possible finger ring. A small cast band of a flattened lentoid section with continuous wavy line of stamped dots of diameter c.0.7mm and with intermittent zones featuring a trapezoid figure defined by curved indentations, these alternating between one edge of the band and the other. The band is broken, the object now forming an open oval loop. This might alternatively be a binding for a thin rod; the small size could only suggest wear as a finger ring by a child or a very slightly built woman. Suggested date: possibly Early Medieval, 900-1100. Internal diameter (long axi…

Lead possible spindle whorl. Mis-cast plano-convex discoid object of plano-convex section with a central aperture, here varying in its diameter from 12mm to 5mm. Shrinkage lines on the flat surface suggest this was cast in an open mould. Patinated. The shape closely resembles that of whorls of Walton Rogers form A1, though the failure in manufacture leaves the spindle size uncertain and its dating consequently open. The mass would admit a primary function spinning a yarn. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-900. Diameter: 26.6mm, Thickness: 8.3mm, Weight: 26.71gms

Lead spindle whorl. Cast cylindrical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 11mm, Walton Rogers form B; patinated. The spindle size tends to indicate an Anglo-Scandinavian date, while the mass could permit a primary function spinning a yarn. Possibly dented or flattened on one side.

Lead possible spindle whorl. Cast conical weight of plano-convex section with a tapered moulded central aperure of diameter 6.5-9mm, cf. Walton Rogers form A1; patinated. The form is taller or more elongated than the majority of whorls of this form, and the central hole is slightly angled, which might detract from its usefulness as a whorl. The spindle size would, however, permit a Middle Saxon date while the mass might suggest a primary use spinning a yarn. A whorl of similar date which was probably reused as a fishing line weight was reported from the vicinity, and the collection of …

Lead possible spindle whorl. Cast cylindrical weight with a moulded aperture of original diameter 9.3mm, indented on one side in antiquity. As a whorl this could be considered as of Walton Rogers form B, and, if so, the aperture size would suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian date. The mass would permit this to have been used to spin a yarn. The thinning of the wall to one side and the incision of a tying notch at one end might signal the later conversion of whorl to fishing line weight, a category of object commonly encountered in this riparian location. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 900-1…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with two flat faces, one larger than the other, and with a moulded aperture of diameter 7.7mm, Walton Rogers form A2. Patinated. A light nick on either side of the hole may be a tying notch. This might signal the conversion of whorl to line weight, though it may have been an ad hoc addition to help retain the end of a skein. The small spindle size would admit a Middle Saxon date, while the mass could suggest a primary function of the object was spinning a yarn. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 800-850.

Lead and stone whetstone fragment. The broken end of a fine-grained grey layered stone, possibly a slate but resembling a 'phyllite', with a neatly-cut square section groove around its narrower end, and another at right angles to this on either side. The broken end of the hone has been sheathed in lead, which has held its parts together. The hone may have broken across the site of an original suspension hole. There is a probably drilled transverse hole in the end of the lead sheathing which would replace it. This is an unusual example of the repair of a personal hone so it could be con…

Copper alloy possible strap end. A very thin plano-convex section object with a kinked and pointed narrower end, a ribbed expansion just short of its mid-point, and split at the other end. Fiercely abraded. Possibly a distressed example of Thomas Class C, which are ascribed to the 8th-9th centuries and Middle Saxon contexts. A reddish tint to the metal here is, however, a feature often associated with Anglo-Scandinavian metalwork. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-850.

Lead probable weight. Cast disc with apparently excess material at the edge of a flat discoid weight, arising from casting in an open mould. A plain cross appears in low relief on the side which would have formed in the base of the mould. Patinated. The mass might suggest this to represent one ore/ora of c.24gms, the underweight Anglo-Scandinavian version of the ounce. However, its correspondence with the modules used in contemporary bullion transactions [of either 4.07gms or 4.43gms; this weight might imprecisely represent six units in either system] is less exact than would normally…

Copper alloy and iron brooch fragment. Cast plain straight-sided bow of thickness 2.1mm with a stop at its upper end. Above this rises a half-round knob of two graduated stages with a collar and constriction between them. Behind the base of the knob, paired U-shaped lugs retain the iron stub of a pin. The main part of the bow stands proud of lower narrow edges, and has a further rectangular panel, possibly applied, set centrally at the apex of its curve. The bow is broken at the return of its curve and the pointed stub is smoothed by wear. A series of juxtaposed circular stamps runs do…

Copper alloy stirrup terminal, as kindly confirmed by Rob Webley, who comments on an identification of the object as a mount: 'I would be happy for this to go down as a stirrup terminal...'. Cast zoomorphic mount comprising a broad flat-based snout with eyes or nostrils to either side, and with symmetrical features in low relief perhaps representing other details of a beast's muzzle. The object has a rounded knop above these features, furnished with lentoid eyes in low relief on either side. It is hollow behind where this piece fitted onto another object of a different material, probab…
