A complete cast spherical bell probably for hawking of Early Post Medieval probably dating 15th to 16th Centuries AD.

A complete lead trade weight of medieval to post-medieval date 1380-1600AD. The weight is shield shaped with a circular perforation through the pointed edge. A moulded relief design of a lions rampant is present on the upper surface. The reverse is flat and undecorated. The length is 34mm, the width is 25mm and the weight 119g.

Post Medieval copper alloy key probably for a barrel tap.
