Lead offcuts. Two tiny fragments of lead: one is a rectangular billet of cast sheet, of length 17.2mm and thickness 2.6mm, folded and patinated. The other comprises lead sheet or foil, of length 22.7mm, possibly layered, which appears to include finely defined straight edges, overlapping and interleaved in two or more layers, and lightly patinated. The crisp finishing of the latter piece might commend a modern date. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Modern, 43-1950.
