Cast lead alloy weight of unknown date probably later medieval or modern 1300-1800 AD. The weight is sub-circular in plan and D shaped in profile; in cross section it is an irregular rectangle. Through the centre is a circular hole (8.4mm ) with a distinct wear facet on the internal edge. The underside has a distinct circumferential recess which could be interpreted as decoration. The weight is a mid grey colour with an even, but powdery corrosion. Similar weights have been dated to both the Roman and the medieval periods however it is most likely that this is of medieval date, probabl…

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…

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…
