Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Lead Window Came. Fragment of cast H section came in a cross shape indicating it is from the junction of four panes of a glazed window. The gutter to receive the glass quarries is 3.5mm wide, which would suit the thick potash glass of the medieval period. The internal and external faces are, however, smoothly finished. A buff material within the leaves of the came may be putty or fixative. Suggested date: probably Late Medieval, 1400-1500.

Length: 23.2mm, Width: 22.4mm, Thickness: 6.6mm, Weight: 9.10gms.
