Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Barnsley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A perforated conical lead weight of uncertain date, from the Roman to post-medieval period. The weight is conical in shape with a sub-square central perforation of 4.7mm by 4.3mm at the top and 5.9mm square at the base. The base of the weight is flat apart from some metal displaced by the boring of the perforation. The top of the cone is slanted. The surface of the weight is rough and has a well developed white patina. The weight measures 22mm tall, 21mm diameter at the base and 34.8g. Compare YORYM-86C4A5 and DUR-11F3F6.

County: Barnsley

A lead alloy possible spindle whorl of unknown date, Late Iron Age to Post Medieval. It is of Walton Rogers form B1 with two flat faces and straight sides, though the faces on this example are rather uneven, tending towards biconvex. The central aperture is only 3.4mm diameter, casting some doubt on this object's function as a spindle whorl. It may be another form of perforated weight. The lead has a smooth light grey patina. It is 22.4mm diameter, 7.6mm thick and 18.47g. See Walton Rogers (2007) Cloth and Clothing in Early Anglo-Saxon England, which suggests that whorls of this form a…

Object type: AXE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Bradford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Iron axehead of unknown date, probably Medieval to Post Medieval date, about AD 1200 - 1900. It appears to be handforged. It has a socket which is triangular in plan. In profile, the axe has straight parallel sides at the socket end and then starts to flare at both top and bottom, before the cutting edge is broken off. It is about 215mm long, and 90mm wide at the socket. It has a dark brown surface, but is in good condition. The shape of the socket does not seems to fit with any of Ward Perkins Type for Medieval axes. As functional tools, axes change very little in de…

A lead weight, or plumb bob, of unknown date, AD 43 - 1800. The object is ovoid (egg-shaped) and is perforated with a very small hole running from end to end. The hole is 0.6mm diameter, and could only accomodate thin thread or wire. The weight has a smooth, well developed patina with some post-depositional scratches. It is 24.4mm long, 18.6mm diameter and 43.6g. The mass does not appear to correspond closely with any regular system of weighing, perhaps suggesting that the object is a plumb bob or net weight. It does not stand without support.

A perforated lead weight of unknown date. It is cylindrical and stands upright, though slightly angled. There is a small circular hole running longitudinally but off-centre through the weight, with a diameter of 2.4mm. The weight is slightly wider at one end than the other. It has rounded corners and a hollow in the base cuased by the lead shrinking as it cooled. It is 18.1mm tall, 15.4mm diameter and 23.87g. The simple nature of the weight and the narrow, off-centred hole suggests that it is probably a line weight, perhaps used for fishing or weighing down nets or snares, probably in…

A cast lead weight of uncertain date, probably Medieval to Post Medieval (AD 1200 - 1800). The weight is sub conical with convex sides and a flat circular base. There is a circular hole running from the centre of the base to the apex, tapering from 4.7mm at the base to 3.6mm at the apex. There is a slight circular groove on the base, half way between the hole and the edge. The bottom corner is rounded. The weight has an even light grey patina. It is 17.7mm tall, 24mm diameter and 48.8g. The mass is a little under two ounces. If the perforation contained a suspension loop, this would h…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)

County: Rotherham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint scraper of Mesolithic to Bronze Age date, about 10000 BC - 1000 BC. It is formed on a tertiary flake of grey flint and is patinated, with some damage removing the patination in places. It is oval in plan and curved (crescent shaped) in cross section. The flake is quite rough, or damaged, but has short, sub-parallel, semi-abrupt retouch on the right side and distal end . The proximal end is concave, and is probably the hinged termination of a larger previous flake. The left side is damaged and more thinly patinated. The scraper is 21.2mm long, 17.7mm wide and 8.8mm thick. 3.07g.

An irregular and uneven piece of fired clay of unknown date. It has a hard, pink matrix which is fine grained, with lenses and pellets of yellow fine grained clay. There are also large inclusions of dark red possible grog and rounded black pieces probably of black iron ore. The piece is vesicular and does not appear to be deliberately shaped. There are no smooth or finished faces. The finder reports that there are some other similar pieces in the same part of the field. This typical example is 52.7mm long, 41.2mm wide and 31.1mm thick. 40.57g. It may be ceramic building material, waste…

County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead alloy spindle whorl (probably) dating from the Roman or Early Medieval period probably, about AD 43 - 1000. It is of Walton Rogers Form A1, having a D shaped cross section, and being plano-convex, however, it is oval rather than circular and of uneven thickness, casting doubt on its function as a spindle whorl. The central aperture is 3-4mm diameter. The small diameter of the central hole is thought to indicate an early date. The whorl is 18mm long, 15mm wide and 7.8mm thick. 8.07g. If not a whorl, it could be a perforated weight.

County: Doncaster

Two incomplete fire-cracked cobbles of unknown date; stones which have been subjected to high heat causing them to crack and break. Similar objects from the same farm have been recorded as pot boilers, but it is also possible that these stones were used to form hearths, probably for an industrial process. The stone is probably a fine grained sandstone. The two pieces do not join.

A flint debitage flake of unknown date, probably Mesolithic to Neolithic (9000 BC - 2200 BC).
