Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A complete cast lead or lead alloy cyclindrial weight or possible gaming piece, of Medieval to Post Medieval dating (15th to 17th Centuries AD).

The weight is circular in plan, and rectangular in cross section. The top and bottom are flat, and the sides are gently concave, tapering to the top.

The weight is a mid white to dark grey colour, with an even surface patina. Abrasion, caused by movement in the plough soil has resulted in the loss of some of the original surface and detail.

The weight measures 13.85mm tall, 13.88mm in diameter at the base, 12.15mm diameter at the top. It weighs 17.7 grams (0.62 oz).
