Object type: SEAL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: York
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A complete lead object, possibly a merchants seal, of medieval to post-medieval date. The object is a squared tube with rounded corners and a narrowed waist to aid in gripping. Both ends of the object are crudely inscribed with the ligated initials "AR" - possibly referring to the maker or owner. The crude and shallow inscribing suggests the impression would not have been successful in a medium other than soft wax. The object is 20.5mm long and 13.4mm x 11.4mm at each terminal. It weighs 24.9g.
