  • Thumbnail image of YORYM-5F09A9

Record ID: YORYM-5F09A9
Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete folded or rolled lead-alloy strip of uncertain date. The strip has a rectangular section and has been folded/rolled four times along its length. No marks or decoration are visible. The metal has a mid-white patina and is worn. The object is 19.1mm long, 14.4mm wide, 8.6mm thick and weighs 17g. Rolled and/or folded lead alloy strips are commonly believed to be Roman curse tablets. However, comparing this object to examples of verified curse tablets/rolls (http://curses.csad.ox.ac.uk), suggests the present example is of a more modern date and a weight, or lead ingot.

Lead weight. Cast sub-circular weight of plano-convex form with a broad flat face and a narrower flat face, and with a central tapered aperture of diameter 12-9mm, widest on the broader flat side; shrinkage lines there may suggest the object was cast in an open mould. It is uncertain whether the aperture was moulded, drilled or pierced. The surface is, overall, unusually uneven. Patinated and abraded. Perhaps used as a line weight. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Post-Medieval, 43-1800 Diameter: 38.3mm, Thickness: 20.01mm, Weight: 136.76gms

Lead weight, in the form of an ellipse with a c.5.5mm diameter central perforation running through the long axis. It measures 38.0mm in diameter at the widest point, and is 49.5mm high. The item weighs 409g which is around 14½ ounces. The weight is creamy grey with three spots of rust staining (although there does not appear to be any iron inclusion), and surfaces are generally worn, with no decoration visible. Possibly intended for use with a steelyard, but there are a number of other possible uses e.g. as a net or loom weight, and suggested age is medieval, although similar weight…

Post medieval hem or curtain weight. It is made of c2mm thick lead sheet, and is round in plan - it measures 44.8mm in diameter and weighs 24.5g. There are two c2.5mm diameter holes which appear to have been pierced rather than cast. These are roughly central, 7.5mm apart, 16.5 & 21mm in from the nearest edge, and were presumably used to attach the item to fabric. The item has light grey patination. Similar weights have been recorded on the database e.g. PUBLIC-06E8BD IOW-A08C02 NLM-143606 & LANCUM-B01E4F

Lead weight. Cast flat discoid weight with a central pit of diameter 4mm on one side and a rounded outer edge, possibly worn from a bevelled form. Patinated. The central pit might hint at finishing of the object on a lathe. This possibly represented two [underweight] averdepois ounces. Weights of around this value are also reported from the medieval waterfront in London. Suggested date: 1500-1700 Diameter: 34.3mm, Thickness: 5.5mm, Weight: 48.07gms

Medieval lead alloy weight, 54mm in length, 43mm wide, 6mm thick with a weight of 149g. The object is shield shaped (sub triangular) and rectangular in cross section. It is very worn/mis-cast and has a raised design of a shield outline with a central inscription of IHS? in each corner, outside the shield motif, are two or three raised semi-spheres. Given the inscription and design the object is likely to be Medieval, but could be later.

An incomplete lead or lead alloy standing / pyramidal weight, of Medieval to Post Medieval dating (AD 1200 to AD 1600). The weight has a concave circular base, which dips in the middle. The sides taper inwards towards the top. It measures 26.3 mm in height, 26.8 mm wide and 23.4 mm thick. It weighs 61.4 g or 2.17 oz. It is a light to mid grey colour, with an uneven surface patina. Abrasion, caused by movement whilst within the plough soil, has resulted in a loss of some of the original surface detail. Several similar pyramidal /suspension weights have been recorded on the PAS data…
