County: Gateshead
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast lead weight of the late Medieval or Post-Medieval period. The weight is trapezoidal in profile, with 7 facetted faces from base to top. The top has a solid glob of lead that appears to be an incomplete suspension loop. The glob has a narrow rectangular perforation through it, but there is little space for a hook or another form of suspension. The body of the weight also has circular holes drilled into it. The base is rather elaborate, with 7 drop-shaped wedges radiating from the centre.

A complete lead shot ball of Post-Medieval date (AD 1640-1750). The object has a circumferentially running casting seam and a projecting casting spru.
