Lead alloy weight of probable medieval to post-medieval date, c.AD 1200 - 1600. The weight is broadly barrel shaped and is comprised of a rolled sheet of metal which results in an aperture throughout its interior. There is a brown-grey patina on the surface. It is likely that this was a net or line weight. Rolled lead can also be curse tablets but this cannot currently be verified for this object. The length is 40mm, the width is 10mm and the weight 26.37g.

A complete cast lead-alloy weight of medieval to post-medieval date, c.AD 1300 - 1600. The weight is conical with a flat top and base and was likely formed by pouring molten lead into a thimble casing then allowing it to cool. Although this object has been described as a weight, it may also be a gaming piece. The length is 27mm, the width is 12mm. Thimbles have been in common use in England from the 14th century onwards and Geoff Egan (2010, p.265) states that no medieval thimble indisputably dating from before the 14th century has been found in England.

She adds that spindle whorls should ideally be circular and must have a central perforation (ibid.). It is possibl…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy ring probably dating to the medieval period 1200 to 1600AD. The object is circular in plan and hexagonal in cross-section. The ring varies in thickness where the object has worn probably due to wearing against another connection. It has a mid-green patina. Plain rings of such proportions have often been suggested to be Medieval or Post-Medieval harness rings (Geake 2001, 74), though they are typically un-diagnostic.
