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…

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 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 broken, and what remains of the hole is elliptical probably through wear. Along one edge of the weight a clear seam is present, this does not seem to be part of the casting residue from a mould; instead it seems to have been deliberately cut into the surface of the metal having a distinct U shaped profile. One face seems to be both decorated and have an applied surface. The surface seems to be a co…

Cast lead or lead alloy weight of probable Medieval - Post Medieval date (1350 - 1650). The weight is broadly circular in plan and regular in cross section. The upper face is domed with a central pellet. Surrounding the pellet are a number of patinated file marks and pits, presumably caused by air pockets in the mould. The reverse face is plain and undecorated. 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, although a direct paral…

Cast lead or lead alloy weight of probable medieval date (1200 - 1400). The weight is sub-circular in plan and sub-rectangular in cross section. Both faces of the weight are undecorated. The weight measures 31.2mm in diameter and is 6.3mm thick; it weighs 43.9 grams or 1.55ozs. The weight may suggest it was used as a trade or bullion / sterling weight of 1 1/2oz’s. The weight is a mid grey cream colour with an even but abraded patina that covers all surfaces. It has been marked and abraded in the soil; this has caused the weight to become slightly asymmetrical. Similar weights ha…

Cast lead or lead alloy weight of probable Medieval - Post Medieval date (1350 - 1650). The weight is broadly circular in plan and regular in cross section. The upper face has been decorated with a series of marks which form a vertical / horizontal hatched area at the centre of the weight. It is possible within these lines to discern a square shaped shield, however the design is indistinct. It is also possible that there is a small axe shaped punched mark below this shield. The axe is in the form of the medieval knights axe hammer with a central spike, punch and hammer / axe. Again thi…
