Cast lead or lead alloy weight of probable medieval date (1200-1500 AD). The weight is broadly circular in plan and domed / D shaped in cross section. The upper and lower faces are relatively flat and are undecorated. The sides are faceted making the front face seem domed. The underside of the weight is recessed with an uneven shallow dome. The weight is a mid-grey colour with an even, but slightly corroded and abraded patina which covers all surfaces. This weight is most likely to date from the later medieval period, although a direct parallel has not been found. The weight measures …

Cast lead alloy weight with integrally cast loop of probable medieval or post medieval date (1250 - 1700). The weight is broken across its upper edge and the top part is now lost. What remains is broadly sub-rectangular in both plan and cross section. The weight is broken across the loop (diameter 2.4mm). There seems to be no decoration present. The weight is a mid grey cream colour with a good relatively unabraded patina. Where abrasion has occurred this has revealed the grey metal beneath. There is no evidence of corrosion products. The weight measures 39.9mm length, 19.7mm wide, is…

Cast lead or lead alloy weight of probable medieval date (1300 - 1550). The weight is sub-cylindrical being oval in plan and cross section; it is D shaped in profile. A single cast hole extends through the middle of the weight and is filled with a white coloured lead alloy corrosion product; it is likely that this was used to suspend the weight and aided safe-keeping and storage. The underside of the weight has an irregular recess within and the surface is uneven. The weight is undecorated although the external surface is covered in knife marks and cuts. It is a mid-grey colour with an…

Cast lead or lead alloy weight of probable medieval or post medieval date (1300 - 1800). The weight is sub-circular in plan and sub-triangular (conical) in cross section. There is no suspension loop. The weight is a mid-grey colour with an even patina that covers all surfaces. It has been marked and abraded in the soil; this has caused the weight to become asymmetrical. Similar standing weights have been dated to the medieval and post medieval periods. It is likely that the weight would have been used as a trade weight weighing four ounces - 1/4 lb. The weight measures 31.0mm wide,…

Possible cast lead or lead alloy weight of probable Medieval date (1300 - 1550). The weight is irregular in plan being a wasted cylindrical shape (dumb bell) with faceted sides. Both terminals are relatively flat and the weight can easily be stood and balanced on either end. The weight is undecorated although it does have a number of deeply incised lines on either terminal. It is a mid grey colour with an even patina that covers all surfaces. The weight has been marked and abraded in the ploughsoil soil which has caused it to become asymmetrical. A direct parallel for this weight has n…

Cast lead or lead alloy weight of probable medieval date (1200 - 1400). The weight is sub-circular in plan and rectangular in cross section. The front and rear faces are undecorated. A small pierced hole is present on one edge of the weight (diameter 2.7mm); the edge at this point is waisted / deliberately thinned. The weight is a mid grey colour with an even but abraded patina that covers all surfaces. It has been marked and abraded in the soil; this has caused the weight to become slightly asymmetrical. Similar weights have been dated to the medieval period and it is suggested that t…

Cast lead or lead alloy weight of probable medieval date (1300 - 1550). The weight is sub-cylindrical being oval in plan and cross section. A single cast hole extends through the middle of the weight and a copper alloy wire (diameter 2.2mm) is fixed into it; it is likely that this was used to suspend the weight and aided safe-keeping and storage. The weight is undecorated although the external surface is covered in knife marks and cuts. It is a mid grey colour with an abraded and corroded patina that covers all surfaces. Similar weights have been dated to both the Roman and the mediev…
