County: Barnsley

A lead standing weight of uncertain date, Early Medieval to Post Medieval, about AD 850 - 1700. The weight is roughly conical, but the base is pentagonal and the five sides taper as they extend upwards. The upper end of the weight is curved to the side and is damaged, making it unclear what shape it was originally. It is 35.1mm tall, 19.4mm wide and 18.3mm thick. 50.3g. This mass is only a little short of two ounces. Compare CORN-6BC1A8 and GLO-F61AB4.

A rolled strip of lead of unknown date, 200 BC - AD 1900. It is a tightly rolled strip of sheet lead which is about 1.3mm thick and 11.9mm wide, now forming an approximate cylinder of 9.8mm wide and 7.9mm thick. 6.6g. It was initially thought to be a possible Roman 'curse tablet'. However, similar objects such as DENO-21D323 have been compared to examples of verified curse tablets / rolls (http://curses.csad.ox.ac.uk), and are now thought to be of more modern date, and to have functioined as a weight, or simply a convienient lead ingot or offcut. Many examples on the PAS database are …

Object type: STEELYARD WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Leeds
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible steelyard weight of Roman to Post Medieval date, about AD 43 - 1800. It is a globular piece of lead with iron projecting at one end. The iron is bent into a closed suspension loop, though this is in two pieces now. The lead is oval when viewed from the end with the iron, and sub-circular when viewed from the larger sides. Roman steelyard weights are usually biconical, but weights of other shapes may also be Roman, though the steelyard was also used in the Medieval and Post Medieval periods. The lead has a light grey patina and is dented. It is 34mm long, 21.4mm wide and 17.…

A fragment of ceramic curved tile, possibly a roof tile of uncertain date, Roman to Modern, AD 43 - 1900. It is bright orange and curved in cross-section. It has a hard fabric with a rough surfce, especially on the inner face which could be sanded. There are sparse, poorly sorted inclusions, mainly of grog and grit. It is not obviously made of extruded clay, but a Post Medieval or Modern date cannot be ruled out. It is 60.4mm long, 38.7mm wide and 11.8mm thick. 33.3g.

A copper alloy unideintified object of uncertain date, Roman to Post Medieval, AD 43 - 1700. It is a flat plate with almost all the edges broken. It is roughly D shaped in plan. The straight edge is complete in the middle, but broken at the ends,so this edge was either recessed or perhaps a hinge fitting or a slot perhaps for use as a catch. The curved edge has the broken remains of three large sub circular perforations in three projecting lobes with V shaped notches between them. The holes have diameters of about 5mm. They could have been used for attahment, but are too big to be rive…

An iron unidentified object of uncertain date, AD 43 - 1950. It is probably made of wrought iron as it has the appearance of grain, like wood does. It is a bar which is circular in section at one end, but which quickly flattens out to a thinner rectangular cross-section. At the other end, one side curves inwards producing a knife like shape with a flat back and a pointed tip. This object is not identified as a knife however, because the curved edge is as uniformally thick (about 3.5mm) as the straight back, so there is no cutting edge, though the whole object does taper towards the cur…

A fragment of a ceramic vessel of uncertain date, Roman to Modern, AD 43 - 1900. The shard is an unusual shape and damaged, but appears to be part of the rim and shoulder from a narrow necked vessel with a rounded body. The fabric is orange and hard, with a irregular texture and sparse inclusions of quartz and grit. At first glance the fragment looks like the edge of a tegula or tile, but there are sufficient curves to rule this out. The fragment is 39.7mm tall, 61.7mm wide and 20mm thick. 76.2g.

A fragment of ceramic tile, possibly Roman tegulae, of uncertain date, Roman to Modern, AD 43 - 1900. The fabric is orange and hard, with a irregular texture and poorly sorted sparse inclusions of orange grog and grey grit. The fragment is from an edge of the tile. The main body is narly flat, with a raised wide lip at the edge. The outer surface is sanded. On the inner face of the lip are a pair of fingerprints. A Post Medieval or Modern date cannot be ruled out. It is 63.7mm long, 45.1mm wide and 18.9mm thick. 58g.

Seven fragments of ceramic tile, possibly Roman tegulae, of uncertain date, Roman to Modern, AD 43 - 1900. Each fragment is orange and flat or almost flat, but all are incomplete, so the shape of the edge is not known. They could be roof tile or floor tile. None are obviously made of extruded clay, but a Post Medieval or Modern date cannot be ruled out. The largest fragment is 80.9mm long, 78.1mm wide and 17.1mm thick. 131g.

Twelve fragments of ceramic curved roof tile, possibly Roman imbrices, of uncertain date, Roman to Modern, AD 43 - 1900. Each fragment is bright orange and U shaped in cross-section. Some are very smooth and have a more modern appearance. Some have fingerprints or thumb impressions showing that they are handmade. None are obviously made of extruded clay, but a Post Medieval or Modern date cannot be ruled out. The largest fragment is 113.4mm long, 95.9mm wide and 12.6mm thick. 246g.

A stone which has had a partial hole drilled in it, from both faces, of uncertain age, from Mesolithic to Modern. The unfinished perforated stone could have been intended to be a weight. The stone appears to be very finely grained and is roughly rectangular, with one long edge that bulges at one end. Both the upper and lower faces are flat - probably a natually fractured cobble which has then been water worn. The hole through the stone is incomplete. It has been drilled from both sides, one side being drilled deeper than the other. The sides of the hole appears to be straight, with a s…

A perforated conical lead weight of uncertain date, from the Roman to post-medieval period, AD 43 - 1900. The weight is sub-conical in shape with a circular base, tapering sides and a tilted domed top. There is a sub0-circular perforation from the apex, slightly curved to the centre of the base. The base of the weight has a ring shaped concavity probably the result of the cooling lead shrinking. The surface of the weight is uneven and it has a well developed white patina. The weight measures 20mm tall, 17.4mm diameter and 75.9g. This mass does not appears to correspond with any known s…

A complete, globular ceramic bead of uncertain date, Roman to Post Medieval, about AD 43 - 1900. The bead is sub-spherical with a possibly drilled circular central hole which has a diameter of 2.7mm. The surface is smooth and is a pale terracotta colour. The ends are slightly flatter than the rest of the bead. It is 9.6mm tall, 11.4mm diameter and 1.2g. The globular shape of this bead does not help with dating as the shape was used from Roman periods onwards. For other similar examples see SWYOR-1C9795 and GLO-86DA3B.

Eight flint debitage flakes of Mesolithic or Neolithic date, about 9000 BC - 2200 BC. They are formed on a tertiary or secondary flakes of light grey flint, some with partial patination. One is crazed and whitened, perhaps from heat, and half the ventral face has a battered rough texture.

A flint retouched chunk of Mesolithic or Neolithic date, about 9000 BC - 2200 BC. The chunk does not have an obvious striking platform or bulb of percussion, but does appear to have previous removal scars and since flint is not naturally occuring in the Pennines, it does appear to be a worked flint. It is formed on yellow grey flint. There is a patch of cortex at one end. On the other side of the same end is a stretch of either edge damage or fine retouch which is short, sub-parallel and low angle. This could also be interpreted as abrasion, backing or platform dressing. The retouched…
