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

Cast lead or lead alloy weight of probable medieval date (1300 - 1550). The weight is sub-circular in plan and sub-triangular (conical) in cross section. The weight is plain and undecorated. Through the centre of the weight is a length of iron wire which has snapped at the top of the weight. It is likely that this wire would have been looped to aid safe-keeping and storage. The weight measures 28.2mm diameter and is 18.9mm thick. It weighs 93.79 grams or 3.3ozs (1447.4 grains). The weight is a mid grey colour with an even patina that covers all surfaces. It has been marked and abra…

From the upper part of the weight a small pierced integrally cast lug extends. The pierced hole has been achieved by cutting from each side it has a diameter of 2.7mm. The weight is plain and decorated with a circumferential incised groove which has been applied to the lower part of the weight. The weight measures 18.8mm diameter and is 24.1mm high.

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. Neither face of the weight is decorated, however one face seems to have a series of irregular punches / stamps impressed in the surface. Due to the corrosion and patina of the weight these marks cannot be accurately read. The weight is a mid grey colour with an even, but slightly corroded and abraded, patina which covers all surfaces. This example is most likely to date from the later medieval or post medieval periods an…

A cast lead or lead alloy weight of unknown date possibly Roman (100-400 AD) although more likely to be of medieval date (1300 - 1550). The weight is irregular being broadly sub-oval in plan and D shaped in cross section, with one flat face and one curved or domed face. Through the upper edge a circular projection has been cut, clear knife marks can be seen within the conical hole suggesting that the weight has either been augmented or was originally crude. The hole is stained with an orange iron corrosion suggesting that an iron wire may have been used to suspend. The flat face has a…

Cast lead or lead alloy weight of probable late Medieval or Post Medieval date (1350 - 1700). The weight is sub-circular in plan and sub-triangular shaped (conical) in cross section. The exterior surface is uneven and abraded; there is no evidence of cast or applied decoration. An irregular cast hole is present piercing the weight from top to bottom, it is filled with the remains of an iron rod, which presumably was looped and aided the safe keeping of the weight. The weight is a mid grey colour with a relatively even, but slightly corroded and abraded, patina that covers all surfaces…

Incomplete fragment of a cast lead or lead alloy weight or possibly steelyard weight of either Roman date (possibly) or late Medieval - Post Medieval date (1350 - 1700). The weight is sub-circular in plan and D shaped (domed) in cross section. The weight is broadly conical with the remains of an iron stud projecting from the base. It is possible that the weight was suspended by this iron stud which is incomplete. The weight is a mid grey colour with a relatively even, but slightly corroded and abraded, patina that covers all surfaces. A direct parallel for this weight has not been fou…

Cast lead alloy weight with integrally cast loop of probable medieval or post medieval date (1250 - 1700). The weight is broadly sub-rectangular in both plan and cross section. The loop is complete and the whole is somewhat elliptical probably through wear (diameter 3.7mm). Along one edge of the weight a clear seam is present; when the base is viewed it is clear that this weight has been formed by rolling thick sheet and then piercing the top. A clear spiral of metal can be seen at the base. There seems to be no decoration present. The weight is a mid grey cream colour with a good rel…

Perforated stone spindle whorl or net weight of unknown date – probably Mesolithic – Modern (6500 BC – 1800 AD). The stone used to make the artefact is a micaceous sandstone which is a mid brown grey colour. The weight is irregular being broadly sub-circular in plan and D shaped in cross section. The central hole is drilled from both ends, is broadly circular in shaped and waisted (egg-timer) in cross section. The maximum diameter of the hole measures 8.4mm. The whorl is not decorated and the surface is rough. Spindle whorls are used for a long period of time and as such are very…
