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 copper alloy weight of post-medieval date (1500-1850). The weight is part of a larger group of stacking weights, having a wide and relatively thick raised edge on the upper face.

The reverse face has a central recess filled with white lead alloy. The weight is a mid green colour with an abraded surface patina. The weight measures 6.2mm thick, diameter of 32.5mm and weighs 24.83 grams (0.87 ozs).

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,…

A cast lead weight of Roman to Post Medieval date (1 - 1650 AD), most probably Roman (AD50-350). The weight is broadly circular in plan and D shaped in cross section; it has been heavily eroded in the soil. The central hole is a an irregular oval shape and has been cast / set off centre; it has an internal diameter of 8.1mm. Both faces are plain and undecorated. The weight has a cream - white coloured surface patina. Weights are used for a long period of time and as such are very difficult to date precisely without other evidence (such as pottery). The weight measures 19.6mm wide a…

Cast lead or lead alloy line weight of Roman to Post Medieval date (1 - 1650 AD). The weight is sub-circular in plan. The central hole is broadly circular and has been cast / set slightly off centre. The diameter of the hole measures 5.6mm x 4.2mm. The artefact is a mid-light grey cream colour with an even broken patina. It has also been abraded and rolled in the plough soil and the edges have been damaged. These weights are used for a long period of time and have multiple functions including holding down lines and nets (for rabbiting - for example). The weight measures 18.7mm diamete…

A cast lead alloy weight or possibly a stopper of uncertain age; most probably later medieval or post medieval (1200-1800). The weight is broadly square shaped in plan with a faceted and waisted profile. From the lower edge a square sectioned project extends; this projection is not pierced. The upper surface is slightly domed and heavily abraded; a series of geometric marks are present but these could be as a result of movement in the ploughsoil. The weight is a mid grey white colour with a soft powdery surface corrosion. The exact nature of the function of this artefact is uncertain -…

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…

A complete circular lead probable trade weight of possible Post-Medieval date, circa 17th - 18th centuries. The weight has flat surfaces on the upper and lower faces.

The stamp is situated slightly off centre. The reverse does not have a stamp or decoration. The weight is a mid-cream to brown colour with a worn surface. Biggs and Withers (2000) suggest weights with stamped marks date from 15th to 18th centuries, …
