Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: County of Herefordshire

Irregular folded lead weight of unknown date (probably Roman – Post Medieval 50-1700 AD). The weight is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and profile. The upper edge has been pierced by a regular pierced hole (diameter: 6.2mm). The lower edge of the weight has been folded back upon itself which has created a much thicker lower edge; this presumably makes the weight hang evenly. There is no evidence of cast or incised decoration on the weight. The weight is a mid cream yellow colour with a relatively even patina. There are small areas of light grey active laminating corrosion; this is m…

An incomplete cast lead weight or steel yard weight. The weight is sub-circular in plan. The top half is conical with the remains of an iron stud projecting from its apex, the bottom half is a shallow dome and there is a prononced lip where the two halves join. It is possible that the weight was suspended by this iron stud which is incomplete. The weight is a white to cream colour with a relatively even, but slightly corroded and abraded, patina that covers all surfaces. The small size and the conical nature suggest it was to be used with a steelyard and therefore be Roman in dat…

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…

Detailed floriated side fleurs are present as a fluer-de-lys shaped ornaments. At the centre of the crown is a cross formed with wedge shaped axis, above this is a much degraded plume of feathers (presumably the em…

Incomplete cast lead or lead alloy weight of probable Medieval - Post Medieval date (1350 - 1700). The weight is broadly circular in plan and regular in cross section. Both faces seems to have some form of decoration although this is indistinct. There is also evidence for an outer raised ridge to the weight. On the upper face there is also a single irregular punch / stamp impressed in the surface. Due to the corrosion and patina of the weight this mark cannot be accurately read. The weight is a mid grey colour with an even, but slightly corroded and abraded, patina which covers all sur…

A complete cast and possibly lathe-turned copper alloy trade weight issued in the reign of James I or II. The weight is circular in plan and the edge, on the upper surface forms a wide lip. Within the lip there is two concentric low-relief rings. In the field outside the rings and between the lip there are 4 stamped symbols. Firstly the sword of St Paul (representing the City) at 11 o’ clock, the Founder Company’s mark (an ewer) at 6 o’ clock and the royal cipher (a crown above the monarch’s initial: I) at 10 o’ clock and an ‘A’ at 1 o’clock representing the Averdepois …

Cast copper alloy trade weight of probable post medieval date (1600-1750). The weight is circular in plan with a raised rim and sunken, slightly convex, interior. The rim and interior are the same on each face. The weight has been abraded in the plough soil and corrosion and wear has obscured the stamped marks. These marks are only present on the upper face and are positioned in a broadly symmetrical pattern. The stamps consist of well struck, but slightly distorted letters: F, W, L (possibly F), and V. The reverse is plain, apart from the slight distortion caused by the use of the pun…

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 irregular nature of the rim is probably due to movement in the plough soil. On both sides of the weight is a central indentation. The only markings are four irregularly spaced, incised ringlets on one half of the top side. The weight has a yellow grey patina all over. 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).
