Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A conical lead alloy weight, with the broken remains of a hole at the apex, presumably for hanging. The weight is conical and measures 49.9mm in height, has a basal diameter of 38.52mm and weighs 236.6g. The base is slightly concave with a small depression at the centre. There are no marking or designs on the weight, but it is somewhat scarred from damage probably sustained after deposition. It has a mid grey patina with some light brown patches. Such weights are very difficult to date accurately and could be from Roman to Post Medieval periods, 43AD - 1700AD

A lead Roman to Post Medieval weight, dating to AD 43-1800. It is a conical weight with a rounded apex in which an iron loop has been inserted and sealed with lead alloy still visible on the base of the weight. The sides of the weight have traces of iron corrosion as well as scratches and dentings.
