Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead and iron weight of late medieval or post-medieval date (c. AD 1400 - 1600).

The object is 18.61mm in length and 14.88mm in diameter. It weighs 30.32g. See YORYM-413052 for a similar example recorded on the database.
