An incomplete cast lead or lead alloy weight of probable medieval date (1300 - 1550). The weight is broadly oval (sub-rectangular with tapering sides terminating in blunt points) in plan and cross section. On the upper point is an integral cast suspension loop which is circular in plan and oval in cross section and is broken across its upper edge. The perforation / hole through the centre is also oval with the upper edge being worn. The body of the weight has a large central rib which extends from the upper edge to the base. The weight seems to be relatively undecorated. There are two…

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,…

Cast lead or lead alloy weight (possibly apothecaries' weight) of probable later Medieval or Post Medieval date (1350 - 1700). The weight is sub-rectangular in plan and profile; each edge is faceted / bevelled. The upper surface of the weight is decorated with seven cast raised pellets arranged symmetrically with two rows of three and a further pellet positioned centrally between them. The reverse face is relatively flat with a slight depression at the centre - this depression is corroded but it could contain a heart shaped stamp contained within a beaded border. The weight is a mid gr…

Cast lead or lead alloy weight of probable later Medieval or Post Medieval date (1350 - 1650). The weight is broadly circular in plan and rectangular in cross section. The edges around the front face are faceted; one side is damaged due to an old and heavily abraded break. The design on the front consists of a concentric pattern with an irregular star formed from a vertical and saltire cross placed at the centre. This is enclosed by a single raised ring which in turn is enclosed by a further ring with a series of irregular triangles on its inner edge (forming a tooth like pattern). T…

Cast lead or lead alloy weight (or possibly a very thick token) of probable late Medieval or Post Medieval date (1350 - 1650). The weight is circular in plan and D shaped in cross section. The edges around the front face are faceted; the design on the front consists of high relief cast ribs and pellets. These forms the initial I b or possibly 91 depending on direction of orientation. The lines are all pellet terminalled and there are two pellets in the field, one below the 9 (or above the b) and one after the 1 (or before the I). The reverse face is plain and undecorated. The weight i…

Cast lead alloy weight, or possible spindle whorl of unknown date probably later medieval 1300-1600 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 sub-circular hole (diameter: 8.7mm). There is no sign of decoration and the ring 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, probably for use as a net or line weight. The weight measures 24.9mm diameter, is 1…

A cast lead alloy weight of probable Roman or Medieval date 100 -1650 AD. The weight is an irregular conical shape with the base being an irregular circular shape and the apex an irregular dome. The weight is undecorated, although it has a series of possible marks on the outer surface these are distorted by laminating corrosion patina. The weight is pierced at the apex by an irregular slanting hole which has possibly cast rather than drilled: the hole has a diameter of 4.9mm. Without other artefacts from the same context it is difficult to date the artefact; due to the variation in fi…
