Description: Undecorated bodkin fragment with a slightly pointed end, one long eye, and a groove running along its entire length. While the object is plain and looks a lot like a sailorís needle or tapestry needle, the proportions and material indicate that it is probably a bodkin for a lower class individual who could not afford silver or an inscription.
