Record ID: WREX-F98B66
Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete lead-alloy weight dating from the medieval to Post Medieval periods (1100-1800AD). The object is circular in plan and has been pierced which shows some signs of wear from being suspended. The back of the object is smooth but the upper surface appears to be decorated with randomly placed pellets. Although it is possible that this is just a result of the casting. It is unlikely that this was used as a spindle whorl since the off-set piercing would cause the spindle to spin unevenly. It is more likely to be some form of hanging weight, or net weight. Diameter: 33.5mm; inte…

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Denbighshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete lead-alloy weight dating from the Roman to Post Medieval period (43-1800 AD). In section the weight is broadly trapezoidal and is rectangular in plan. A hole has been punched through the apex to facilitate suspension and this shows signs of wear. Weights of this type are not completely understood and it could have been used for a variety of tasks. The weight is undecorated, but both ends are flat with rounded edges. The object has been well made and has a powdery white patina. Height: 44.4mm; width at base: 23.1mm; width at top: 11.7mm; thickness at base: 12.1mm; thicknes…

A lead zoomorphic figurine of unknown date. The object is in the shape of a dolphin with an arched back, a well-defined lip and tail. The remains of a casting seam is visible on the base.

An unidentified copper-alloy and gilded object of Unknown date and uncertain function. This object is circular and the front is decorated with a 'triskele'-like motif. The motif is in the form of curvilinear lines forming three evenly spaced conjoined 'scrolls'. The front has a patterned border of continuous oblique lines. The reverse is flat and plain with whitish patches of corrosion. On the rear face, just below the protrusion, a small pale circular area is possibly a break. This object is drab green with patches of a dark green patina. Traces of gilding can be seen on both sides.…

An incomplete artefact of unknown date and function; it is most likely to be part from a knife handle (counter weight) of post medieval date. The plate is an irregular octagonal shape (square with the corners removed) and rectangular in cross section. Through the centre is a rectangular slot (7.8mm x 2.6mm). The upper surface is plain and undecorated whilst the lower has a series of scratched marks - most probably through movement in the soil. The piece is a mid-grey colour and is most likely to be a lead alloy. A direct parallel has not been found. The artefact measures 27.4mm long, …

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Worcestershire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Cast copper alloy fitting, hollow, D sectioned with a 2.0mm wide x 0.9mm deep, square sectioned, transverse rib around its wider end. Both ends are now open but the opening on the flatter end may be a result of damage. The date and function of this object are unknown. It section, at 2.1mm at the open end and 1,0mm at the open end is too thin for it to be a Bronze Age gouge and a later date seems likely. Length 46.5mm, Width 27.6mm, Thickness 14.5mm, Mass 35.86g (including earth fill).

Copper alloy unidentified object. Flat cast oval plate with a narrower oval panel of length 26.5mm stamped centrally on one side, to a depth of 0.6mm. The panel bears about 13 transverse grooves which appear to have been stamped or incised in its base. The appearance of the grooves and the ridges left between them is not dissimilar to that of simple lettering, though probably fortuitously so. A function relating to some indeterminate craft might be posited, though the cuts marks are neither so numerous nor so straight as might appear on a palm guard or 'sailmaker's glove'. Accompanying…

A cast copper-alloy and iron object of unknown date and function. Description: The object consists of a very corroded iron shank with a circular, cast copper-alloy collar 10.5mm in height and 17.7mm in diameter approximately one third along the length of the shank. The corrosion of the iron masks any detail but it comes to a blunt point at each side of the collar, the longer section being square-shaped in section, the shorter section rectangular in section. The longer section has a short, projecting, pointed stub just below the lower edge of the collar. The copper-alloy collar is une…

Lead possible weight. A small cast oval billet with rounded ends, probably lightly hammered to a coffee-bean shape, flattening one of its opposed larger sides. Patinated.

Lead unidentified object. A cast cylindrical or drum-shaped object with a circular indentation of diameter c.5.5mm at either end, in both cases stained with rust. One edge of the drum is chipped; as patina extends over this damage it is considered to have been incurred in antiquity. The markings could suggest the object was retained at its ends by a tensile clip or holder, or that an object or objects were embedded. In the latter case, which is sometimes a feature of Viking-Age weights, the damage to the object and the possible or partial loss of the additional element/s tend to vitiat…

County: Staffordshire

An incomplete iron object of uncertain date. The object is roughly oval in plan and flat in profile. The object may have been sharpened at one end so could be the remains of a blade. The possibly sharpened end is slightly flattened, whilst the opposite end tapers and is rounded off. The object could also represent spillage from metalworking. It has mid-green copper alloy staining and shows signs of corrosion on both faces. The overall dimensions are as follows: 79.19mm in length, 31.47mm in width, 6.94mm in thickness and 67.72g in weight.

A sub-circular disc-like lead alloy object, probably a vessel repair ('pot-mend') of Roman to medieval date. The vessel mend is crudely made with the remains of a shank on one side - the opposing side is pitted and uneven. These objects are very hard to date without contextual information. Suggested date: AD 43-1500. For comparison see NLM-61DCBD. The diameter is 20mm and the weight 20.38g. Pot mends of this form are found in both Roman and Medieval periods, as a common way to repair broken pottery vessels. The lack of any vessel material left in the groove means they cannot be dated …
