A complete lead-alloy weight of uncertain date. The object is conical with irregular sloping sides, rounded edges, and a central perforation running through it. All surfaces appear undecorated and are worn. The metal has a light grey/white patina. The object is 26.1mm tall, 11.6mm in diameter, and weighs 24.8g. The perforation is 12.9mm 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 da…

Object type: PENDANT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Leeds
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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'. The revers is concave and a perforation passes through the top of the 'T' shape into a raised strip at the centre of the reverse. The metal has a pale yellow/white patina. The object is 21.4mm long, 25.1mm wide, 5.9mm thick and weighs 13.8g. While it is possible this is a crude attempt to recreate a Thor's hammer style pendant such undiagnostic objects are difficult to date without a secure stratified context,…

A folded or rolled lead-alloy strip of uncertain date. The strip has a rectangular section and has been folded/rolled four times along its length. No marks or decoration are visible. The metal has a mid-white patina and is worn. The object is 19.1mm long, 14mm wide, 8.9mm thick and weighs 17.1g. Rolled and/or folded lead alloy strips are commonly believed to be Roman curse tablets. However, comparing this object to examples of verified curse tablets/rolls (http://curses.csad.ox.ac.uk), suggests the present example is of a more modern date and a weight, or lead ingot.
