Lead possible weight. A short cast tube of globular form with a large [diameter 16.7mm] central aperture; battered and lightly patinated. One end bears cut-marks; the other is lightly splayed. The form is not dissimilar to that of modern fishing weights used by sea anglers, though the hole could admit the selvedge of a large net. The modest degree of patina may point to a relatively recent date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1700-1900 Length: 29.7mm, Diameter: 25.3mm, Thickness (wall): 5.2mm, Weight: 63.43gms

Lead alloy possible weight. A small trapezoid flat-sided billet, probably cut from cast sheet. Patinated. Kindly suggested to be lead by the finder but probably alloyed, and hence less flexible than it might otherwise be. The mass might hint at this representing two Roman drams of 1.77gms, or perhaps one eighth of an averdepois ounce - in the latter case, underweight. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Post-Medieval, 43-1800 Length: 11.9mm, Width: 10.4mm, Thickness: 2.9mm, Weight: 3.28gms

A possibly Medieval lead weight of an unknown date. The weight would once have been conical in shape, but has been cut down the centre, possibly to check how deep the suspension loop hole had been cast. further attempts at cutting the weight can be seen through a further two incisions made to one side. The weight has a white patina and is heavily pitted. Other examples of this weight can be seen in LANCUM-F02BA8. Height: 38.09 mm Diameter: 46.46 mm Weight 396g

A cast lead weight dating to the medieval to post medieval period AD 1200-1700. The weight has a convex outer face and a concave reverse. It is sub-oval in shape, which suggests it was probably sub-circular in shape originally, and rests flat when rested on a flat surface. The outer face has been decorated with a circular black mark covering most of the surface. While early medieval weights formed of lead with a copper alloy inset do exist (such as YORYM-5F1A6E), the majority of these are solid rather than concave in reverse. The hollow back of this example makes it more likely to be …

Lead weight. Cast cylindrical weight with one flat side and one which bears a partial rim around an irregular indentation; patinated. The indentation might be an incompletely defined rim; or it may show where a small flat object was formerly embedded. The current mass could suggest this object to have represented twelve Viking Age units of 4.07gms, as used for silver bullion transactions, and equating to two ora/ore, the contemporary version of an ounce. However, the possible loss of fabric leaves this open to doubt: it might equally be a complete but underweight two ounce weight of th…

Lead weight. Cast ball with a tapered central hole of diameter 3.6mm-1.5mm diameter; abraded. The metal retains a grey tint, which may suggest a relatively recent date. The small hole could permit a horsehair thread to be threaded through the object, so a function as a line weight would appear possible.

Lead weight. Cast elongated oval weight of lentoid section, with moulded detail at one end comprising a blind hollow and a curving groove defining eye and head of a fish, with the rest of the object serving as its body. A hole of diameter 2.5mm at the other would permit the weight to be threaded onto a line. Patinated. The piscine form invites interpretation as a fishing weight. If so, in its size and mass this more closely resembles weights used by modern sea anglers than it does those later medieval versions with loops at one end (e.g. Jackson, S., 'Objects of lead and lead alloy', …

Lead possible weight. Cast plano-convex object with a central dimple on either side, more prominent - of length 6mm - on the flat side; possibly from an object inserted to remove the fresh-cast object from its open mould. Patinated and abraded. As a weight, the present mass might suggest this to have represented twelve Viking Age units of 4.43gms, also equal to 3 ora/ore, the contemporary version of the ounce. In more recent times it may have represented two [underweight] averdepois ounces. The possible loss of fabric to abrasion, however, could undermine such fine distinctions and mus…

A cast lead weight probably dating from the Medieval or Post Medieval periods, about AD 1100-1800. The object is of rounded sub-triangular form and has a height of 22.19mm, a width of 14.95mm, and a thickness of 9.92mm. It weighs 14.86g. There is an elongated oval perforation for suspension. There are grooves in either side of this perforation (towards the apex of the triangle) where the line from which the weight was suspended has worn into the lead. Although its mass is only a little over half an ounce, the object is probable a line or net weight, not one intended for measurement.

A cast lead weight of uncertain date, probably Roman to Post Medieval (AD 43 - 1800). The weight is a short cylinder with a flat base and an angled top, but straight sides. There is a stub of an iron loop or rivet projecting from the centre of the sloping face. The weight has a smooth white patina. It is 25.5mm diameter, 15.9mm thick and 68.5g. This mass does not obviously match any of the main systems of measurement known. It could be a non-standard weight for a specific purpose, or it could be a weight that was used to add mass to another object rather than for weighing.

A cast lead weight of uncertain date, probably Medieval to Post Medieval (AD 1200 - 1800). The weight is sub conical with convex sides and a flat circular base. There is a circular hole running from the centre of the base to the apex, tapering from 14.5mm at the base to 11.1mm at the apex. There is a slight circular groove on the base, half way between the hole and the edge, probably a result of the lead contracting as it cooled. The weight has a smooth grey patina. It is 49.5mm tall, 54.5mm diameter and 709g. The mass does not obviously correspond to any system of measurement, though…

A Medieval or post medieval cast lead alloy cup weight from a set of nested weights, dating from about AD 1300-1600. The weight is a shallow bowl or cup. It has a circular base with the sides flaring up to a wider rim. Unlike other examples on the PAS database, there is no decoration and the cup is completely plain. It has a smooth yellow patina. It is 40.4mm diameter, 10.9mm high and the walls are 3.4mm thick. 56.2g. This mass is 1.98oz, so the weight was probably intended as a two ounce weight. Egan 1998:309-10 discusses a set of six lead cup weights in the British Museum for which…

Lead weight of uncertain date (c. AD 43 - 1800). The object is oval with a circular perforation that does not extend all the way through. A hollowed circular section on the other side of the object may represent an abandoned attempt to extend this perforation. The object is dark grey in colour. It is 24.11mm in length, 21.44mm in width and 17.34mm in thickness. The perforation is 2.43mm in diameter. The object weighs 45.32g. It can be difficult to date lead weights without archaeological context. This example has no diagnostic features that would allow it to be more precisely dated.

Lead conical and perforated weight of post-medieval date (c. AD 1600 - 1800). The weight has a slightly expanded circular base. It is perforated centrally by a circular hole. The object has a white patina with a rough and pitted surface. It is 21.65mm in length, 22.77mm in diameter and weighs 42.09g. There are a number of similar examples recorded on the database, including: LEIC-75FABE and LANCUM-F064D0. There is a great deal of uncertainty over the date of this type of lead weight, although the string retained in the latter example suggests a post-medieval to modern date is most fitting.

A probably post medieval lead weight. A cast solid circular lead weight with sloping sides and a flat upper and irregular lower surface, suggesting that it was cast in a defective mould, white/light grey patinated overall. It is 27.5mm in diameter at the base, and 29.5mm at the top, and is up to 8.5mm thick, and weighs 44.4g. Suggested date range for this object would be medieval to post-medieval, c.1300-1700, but it could be any date from Roman to post medieval, and the degree of patination could probably suggest a later date.

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.

Pale Limestone possible weight fragment, as kindly suggested by the finder. A small pebble with a deep [3mm] groove at one end, and a flattened area aligned with this. The groove may initially have served as a tying notch. Its continuation is truncated by another flat and smoothed surface. The stone is probably too soft to have served as a plough pebble, but some form of reuse as a rubber or polisher may have produced the flat surface as it now appears. The exploitation of erratic pebbles as sharpeners or rubbers is particularly common between later Prehistory and the end of the Early …

Lead weight. Cast plano-convex or conical weight, with slight shrinkage in its flat base suggesting it was cast in an open mould. The convex side features a central boss with strongly moulded ribs, some broader and some narrower, ascending the sides, and with some compartments between them occupied by moulded saltires. All these details appear in strongly moulded relief. A grey tint may point to a relatively recent date. The mass does not appear among medieval weights from the London waterfront, though an example of different value does bear comparably strongly moulded decoration. A …

The mass may suggest this to have represented four Viking age units of 4.07gms, as used for silver bullion transactions. The form is also well adapted to use on a flat games board, so a dual purpose as weight and gaming piece cannot be ruled out.

Lead and iron weight of late medieval or post-medieval date (c. AD 1400 - 1600). The weight was probably formed from pouring molten lead into a thimble; consequently, it is cylindrical in form, with a rounded, hachured end. Two iron stubs protrude from the top: these are the remains of a suspension loop. The object has a white patina with red patches from iron corrosion. 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.

A patch of iron staining appears on one side; patinated. The sides may be lightly flattened, possibly approaching an octagonal section. The longitudinal hole might relate this to Roman steelyard weights with their separate loops, though a facetted form might equally be expected in the medieval period.

Lead circular uniface weight with raised design showing a six petaled flower or star. Post-Medieval in date. Lead tokens and weights had a wide variety of uses and were made locally; therefore they are difficult to date precisely and are generally dated to c. 1250-1800. Tokens with initials are generally thought to date to the post-Medieval period, c. 1550-1800. If this object was used as a weight, its suggested date range could be extended more generally to include Roman to Modern periods of activity.
