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…

An incomplete lead or lead alloy weight, of probable Medieval to Post medieval dating (AD 1300 to AD 1700). The weight is an thick circular disc in shape. It is sub rectangular in cross section. Both sides are flat. The front has three letters BII. The back is undecorated. It has a diameter of 35.1 mm and is 6.4 mm thick. It weighs 55.7 g (1.97 oz). The weight is light to mid grey colour, with an even surface patina. Abrasion, caused by movement whilst within the plough soil, has resulted in a loss of some of the original surface detail. Weights of this style are frequently encount…
