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-rectangular in profile. The sides are irregular and taper slightly from the base. The weight is undecorated, although there are a number of scratches present on all surfaces. These are most likely to have been caused by movement in the ploughsoil. The weight is a mid grey colour with a relatively even patina that covers all surfaces. It is possible that the weight may have been burnt at one point. A direct parallel for this weight has not been found. …

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 being formed from a clipped sheet of lead. Each of the sides is slightly flattened and tapers. The upper surface of the weight is decorated with four circular stamps. Each stamp is exactly the same as the others being a raised rose with a central pellet set above a border of pellets. It is possible that the weight is further decorated with small pellets or notches around the outer edge; these have been badly a…

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 D shaped in cross section. The front face is undecorated but the remains of a encrusted projection of some sort remains on both faces. The reverse face of the weight is flat and undecorated. The weight measures 40.8mm in diameter and is 11.1mm thick; it weighs 114.1 grams or 4.01ozs. The weight may suggest it was used as a trade or bullion / sterling weight of 4oz’s or ¼ of a pound. The weight is a mid grey colour with an even but abraded patina that covers all surfaces…

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 (probable) undecorated weight of probable medieval or post-medieval date (1300 - 1650). The weight is broadly sub-triangular in plan and cross section. It measures 60.4mm in length, 61.3mm width and is 26.4mm thick. It weighs 249.85 grams or 8.9 ozs. The weight is a mid grey colour with an abraded and corroded patina that covers all surfaces. It has been marked and abraded in the soil; this has caused the weight to become asymmetrical. A large number of inclusions (grit and stone) have been embedded in the surface corrosion of the weight. Similar weights have…

Cast lead or lead alloy ‘bun shaped’ weight of probable later Medieval date (1350 - 1550). The weight is sub-circular in plan and irregular (D shaped) in cross section. The domed front face is decorated with an off-centre design positioned around a circular hole which does not pierce the opposite edge. The design consists of a raised central boss (with hole at centre) from which eight radiating ribs spread. These ribs divide the upper surface of the weight unevenly into triangular wedges. Many of these have singled raised dome like pellets within them. Much of this decorated surfac…

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…
