A cast lead alloy weight, most likely of Post Medieval in date. This weight is circular in shape. The obverse face of the disc is roughly flat and undecorated. The reverse however contains a large casting sprue which was never removed, meaning this weight was never finished; the general surface is also uneven.

A lead weight, likely dating to the post medieval period. The weight is roughly cylindrical in plan. This surface expands from the top downwards, on the top surface is a hole going on to the object. The object has a great deal of abrasion and as a consequence the shape is deformed. The object measures 34.84mm high, has a length of 20.26, a width of 17.16 and weighs 86.6g.

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 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 -…

A lead alloy weight or possible spindle whorl of Roman to Post Medieval date (AD1 - 1650). In plan the object is semi-circular. The object has a central semi-circular perforation which measures 4.10mm in width. It is possible the object was once circular and only half of the object is now remaining. The upper surface is decorated with a series of linear incisions. The reverse surface of the object is un-decorated. The object has a cream coloured patina across all surfaces. Spindle whorls and weights have been used for a long period of time and are therefore very difficult to date prec…

A complete, cast lead alloy, weight of post medieval date. The weight is flat and broadly circular in plan. It has an abraded , irregular rim, which is most prominent on the top side.

The maximum diameter of the weight is 30.5mm, and its maximum thickness, at the rim, is 5.4mm. It weighs 23.95g ( 0.845oz).
