Object type: WEIGHT
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.
