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. …

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…

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 Post Medieval or early modern date (1550 - 1800). The weight is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and profile being formed in the shape of the royal crown. The front face of the weight has an intricate designed crown which has been achieved through casting. It consists of a double jeweled band from which a double looped frame expands. 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…

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…

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…

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…

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 cylindrial weight of probable Medieval dating (11th to 15th Centuries AD). The weight is circular in plan and rectangular in cross section. It consists of a small cylindrial weight, with a concavity in the upper most surface. The base is flat. It has a diameter of 14.2mm and is 9.9mm tall. It weighs 13.1 grams / 0.46 oz. It probably was originally 0.5 oz in weight, but has lost some weight due to abrasion suffered by being in the plough soil. Weights of this type are hard to accurately date, as they are a functional artefact, and change li…

Cast lead or lead alloy weight of probable Medieval date (1200-1500 AD). The weight is broadly circular in plan and regular in cross section. The upper face is relatively flat and has a single irregular pierced hole through the centre. The corroded remnants of an iron wire are present; this wire would have aided the use and also secured it for safekeeping / storage. The weight is a mid grey colour with an even, but slightly corroded and abraded, patina which covers all surfaces. The weight has been marked by movement in the ploughsoil. This weight is most likely to date from the later…

Complete lead alloy weight of uncertain date. This crude weight is circular and flat. It is made of lead and has no decoration or marks. Its shape suggests it was used as a measure, and its pre-decimal weight of 1.02oz makes this likely. It has an off white patina. One side is smoother and flatter than the other. Its diameter is 26.7mm, its thickness is 6.2mm and it weighs 28.9g. A similar weight, PUBLIC-7E00A6 Weight, was found nearby.
