A complete lead-alloy weight of uncertain date. The object is circular with a flat top and base and a central perforation running through it. All surfaces appear undecorated and are extremely pitted and worn. The metal has a light reddish/brown patina. The object is 23.2mm in diameter, 9.8mm thick and weighs 26.8g. The perforation is 4.3mm in diameter. The term 'weight' is used here in its broadest sense to include uses that do not involve weighing (e.g. holding-down, tensioning, etc.). They were commonly used from the Iron Age through to the post-medieval period and are difficult to…

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete lead-alloy standing weight of uncertain date. The weight is conical with a flat base and rounded top. No decoration is apparent. The metal has a mid-grey patina and is worn. The weight is 57.5mm tall, 46.7mm - 24.4mm in diameter and weighs 661g. Lead weights were commonly used from the Iron Age through to the post-medieval period and are difficult to date with any certainty without supporting archaeological context. The function of such objects is also difficult to determine. The dating of lead objects of this general type is problematic, and their use is invariably uncertain.

A complete lead-alloy weight of possible Roman to Post-Medieval date, c.AD 43 - 1700. The weight is cylindrical in form, and narrows towards each terminal. An irregular longitudinal overlap of metal has been crudely smoothed suggesting the object was constructed from a single sheet rolled over onto itself. The metal has a light white/grey patina and is worn. The weight is 34.5mm long, 15.5mm in widest diameter and weighs 42.2g. According to Helen Geake, 'Perforated weights of other shapes (e.g. long hollow cylinders, or thin rods with a perforation at one end) are very imperfectly un…

A complete lead-alloy possible token or gaming piece of uncertain date. The object is sub-circular with a D-shaped section. No decorative markings can be determined. The metal has a mid-brown patina and is worn. The object is 13.9mm in diameter, 2.5mm thick and weighs 1.9g. Due to a lack of contextual evidence and any diagnostic features it is not possible to date this object any more closely and may date from the Roman to Post-Medieval periods.

A complete glass bead of uncertain date. The bead is circular in plan with a slightly off-central circular perforation. The glass is a semi-translucent dark blue colour. The bead is 12.9mm in diameter, 5.9mm thick and weighs 1.2g. The perforation is 5.7mm in diameter. Glass beads are very difficult to date with any certainty. They are often thought to be Roman in date though blue glass beads were commonly for use in spangles on lace making bobbins in the 19th century. Due to a lack of contextual evidence and any diagnostic features it is not possible to date this object any more…

A complete lead-alloy weight or pendant of uncertain date. The object is triangular with a moulded raised design to the upper surface in the form of the capitalised letter 'T'.
