Record ID: SWYOR-F62CD5
Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Doncaster
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

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.

County: Calderdale
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

A flint, retouched flake of Mesolithic or Neolithic date, about 9000 BC - 2200 BC. It is sub-rectangular in plan, and triangular in cross-section. It is formed on a tertiary flake of light grey coloured flint. There is short, sub-parallel, low angle retouch on the ventral face at the distal end. There are also previous removal scars on the dorsal face and left side, so the piece could eb a core rejuvenation flake. The flint is 10.5mm long, 16.3mm wide and 5.6mm thick. 0.79g.

184 flint debitage flakes dating from the Mesolithic or Neolithic period, about 9000 BC - 2200 BC. The debitage includes translucent light grey flint and dark grey opaque chert of poor quality. All are secondary or tertiary pieces, and some have some patination. Some pieces display platform preparation. Many of the flakes are incomplete; this could be post-depositional damage. A few are burnt.

A flint flake; a piece of debitage, dating from the Mesolithic or Neolithic periods, about 9000 BC - 2200BC. It is a tertiary flake of grey, partially patinated, battered flint. The distal end is a battered face, probably from post depositional damage. The sides are also damaged, but there does appear to be a striking platform and a bulb of percussion, suggesting that the flint was intentionally struck. In addition, flint does not naturally occur in this area. The flake is crazed and polished, and shows a lot of damage. It is 28.8mm long, 26.5mm wide and 11.7mm thick. 9.35g.

County: Rotherham

A copper alloy unidentifed object of uncertain date, Iron Age to Post Medieval. It is a thick, curved rod, perhaps part of a loop or hook. It is of circular section at one end (7mm diameter) and tapers to an oval cross-section (6.5mm by 4.5mm) at the other end. It is not clear whether the ends are the original terminals or not. It is 22.4mm long, 7.4mm wide and 11mm thick. 6.6g. The metal has a well developed smooth green patina. The size and chunkiness is similar to that found on late Iron Age to Early Roman miniature terrets such as SF-4ABC26 but this fragment is too small to identif…

A copper alloy unidentified object, possibly of Iron Age or Roman date. It is a curved bar of copper alloy forming a semi-circular loop. The bar is oval to D shaped in cross-section. The inside of the curve is worn. There is a flat facet on the apex of the outer face, and a shallow circular depression in its centre. This appears to contain ferrous material, but when tested with a magnet it gave no response. The terminals of the loop are particularly interesting. There appears to have been a narrow bar of rectangular section projecting from the centre of each terminal. The golden brown …

A lead possible weight or maybe a gaming piece of unknown date (Roman to Post Medieval). The object is a sub-circular disc which is asymmetrically conical with a rounded apex and rounded corners. The cone is not shaped to allow it to be easily picked up. Compare DENO-586058. The object is 9.6mm tall, 14mm diameter and 7.3g. It has a well developed cream patina. Compare CAM-4E757A and SWYOR-0CE8CD and for a probable gaming piece, see NLM-948453.

An unideintified object; a perforated lead disc pf unknown date (Roman to Post Medieval). It has a thickened rim on both faces, and the rim is uneven. The central perforation is oval and is wider on one face than on the other. The most interesting feature is the impression of a twisted cord across one face, across the centre and interreupted by the central aperture. The disc is slightly oval; it is 27.7mm maximum diameter (24.8mm smallest diameter) and 4.9mm thick. 23.1g.Compare ESS-8653E3.

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.

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…

A flint end and side scraper of probable Late Mesolithic to early Neolithic date, about 6500 BC - 3300 BC. It is sub-trapezoid in plan with obliquely angled distal and proximal ends. The cross-sectin is sub-triangular. It is formed on a tertiary flake of translucent grey flint, probably from the East Yorkshire Wolds. There is short, sbrupt, sub-parallel retouch on the distal end, and finer but otherwise similar retouch on the longer left side and the shorter right side. It is 30.4mm long, 14.2mm wide and 4.8mm thick. 1.6g.

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…
