Plough coulter(?) from the Stidriggs Hoard

This thick piece of iron has a blade-like shape, but no edge. Grooves cut near the top may be to aid in securing it in position.   It may well be an iron plough coulter - a blade which fitted at the front of a plough to cut through the turf, so that it can be turned by the mouldboard.
