Lead weight. Cast oval weight, of rectangular section with rounded ends. One end is nicked, which may be provision for tied fastening, though weights of this form would more usually have an integrally cast or drilled apical loop. Patinated. The form is broadly comparable with that of line weights and net sinkers of medieval date, though this is smaller than most examples of this form. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1500 Length: 31.4mm, Width: 11.6mm, Thickness: 9.1mm, Weight: 22.75gms

A Post Medieval circular copper alloy pan weight, 44.4mm in diameter, weighing 97.77g (3.5 oz). One side is engraved with at least three sets of paired concentric lines. The edge is slightly bevelled. The patina suggests a high lead content to the alloy. Circa 17th-19th century.

Lead hem (or possibly curtain) weight, in the form of a 4.9mm thick flat disc of 24.3mm diameter with curved sides, and centrally located recessed circles of 9.5mm diameter on both faces, within which are two c.2mm diameter attachment holes. The recess is deeper on one face than the other. Similar examples can be seen on the database, e.g. NLM-B5C516, LANCUM-0C64F1, PUBLIC-12B9F7, although this one is unusual in that it has recesses on both faces. There is a reference to hem weights on page 83 of Bailey's (2004) 'Buttons and fasteners'. Probably of 18th or 19th century date, though t…

A complete Medieval to post-Medieval lead alloy standing weight (c. 1200-c. 1600). This weight is conical in form and the main body is circular in cross-section. It tapers from the base towards the suspension loop at the top. The base is flat and the top has oblique shoulders and a narrowed flat suspension loop.

A complete copper alloy post-medieval trade weight dating from the period AD 1714-1830 (George I - IV). There are four stamped marks on the face; the sword of St Paul (for London) at 12 o'clock, a letter A at 4 o'clock (standing for Avoirdupois - a system of weights using pounds and ounces as the units), an ewer at 6 o'clock for the Founders Company and the royal cipher of a crowned G at 9 o'clock. Both the front and reverse of the weight has concentric grooves and a central dimple or recess showing the object was lathe-turned. The trade weight was probably for an ounce or 3/4 ounce, w…

Post medieval lead four ounce trade weight of James I or II dating to the period c. AD1603 - 1685. Roughly discoidal in form; one face is stamped with the initials I R surmounted by a crown, the arms of the City of Norwich (A castle keep over a lion facing left) and four oval recesses in a line, denoting the weight. Weight: 113g / 3.98oz avoirdupois. The slight discrepancy in weight is probably down to damage caused after deposition.

Lead-alloy rimmed discoidal Medieval weight. The weight is cast, with a deep peripheral border set with an equal armed cross down in the centre of the base, thus forming a deep cup. There is small amount of damage to part of the rim otherwise the object is complete. Allowing for damage and corrosion the weight approximates to an ounce avoirdupois. A similar weight can be seen on this database ref. NMGW-5DED1E. Circa AD1350-1550. Diameter 23.5, Rim height 8mm, weight 23.64g.

A complete post-Medieval copper-alloy trade weight (c. 1850). This weight is circular in plan and the sides flare from the base to a flat rim. The front face is dished and has stamped marks: Crown above C*S; 'O' below C*S; '2' and unclear mark. The outer part of the underside is flat and the centre is concave and uneven. A small hole penetrating the rim may be a casting flaw. The weight is generally reddish overall. Diameter: 36.0mm; thickness: 8.6mm; maximum width of rim: 3.7mm. Weight: 47.57g. (1.6780 ounces). Compare with other trade weights stamped: C*S: HAMP-5EE78D; HAMP-D5E…

A complete lead alloy Weight of Medieval to Post-medieval date (AD 1200-1600). The object is cylindrical with a single circular perforation placed centrally. The metal has a light brown slightly pitted patina. Lead spindle whorls and weights were commonly used from the Iron Age through to the post-medieval period and are difficult to date with any certainty without supporting archaeological context. The function of such objects is also difficult to determine as the forms are common and may have served as spindle whorls or weights used for fishing or goods. Diameter: 19.40mm, Diamete…

Lead weight. Cast near-conical weight with a flat base bearing a small [diameter 2.7mm] centrally drilled hole; in profile the cone is slightly offset relative to its base. Slight shrinkage lines at the flat end may indicate the object was cast in an open mould. The metal retains a grey tint which may point to a relatively recent date, or to unusual circumstances of burial. Weights of pyramidal form are often ascribed to a broad medieval date, and some are reported from the London waterfront (Egan 1998, page 322; Biggs and Withers 2000, 30-33). The conical form superficially resembles…
