Copper alloy Pin. Spiral headed Pin, Flixborough Type 4, with a round section unhipped shank of mid point diameter 2.6mm constructed by the union of two D section halves. These are flattened towards the head where they are bent back to diverge and are curled into a pair of closed loops with their ends adjacent. Most of the examples from Flixborough are ascribed to an early 9th-century phase, with one in a probably intrusive earlier location. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-850.
