A circular, cast lead alloy weight of uncertain date, but probably Medieval or post-Medieval, about AD 1400 - 1800. It is in the shape of a shallow dome with a convex upper side and a flat base. It is possible that there is a design of three lions passant on the upper side, with only the upper of the three lions being discernable, but extensive patinated damage and wear makes this uncertain. There are also three parallel lines scored across the centre of the upper side. These appear to be deliberate but may have been caused by contact with farming machinery. The weight has a mass of 1…

A cast, lead alloy artefact, possibly a badge of Medieval or early post-Medieval date, about AD 1200 - 1600. It is in the shape of a small anchor. The underside is flat and the upper sides of the stock, shank and arms are bevelled. One of the arms has broken away and is missing (the break is patinated), and the other has been bent sideways up towards the stock or cross bar. There is no evidence of mounting points on the underside, not any other form of attachment, suggesting it was originally sewn in place by wrapping thread round the object. The lack of any perforation makes it unlik…

A cast, lead alloy artefact, possibly a fragment of a badge of Medieval or post-Medieval date, about AD 1200 - 1800.

Protruding from one corner is a small spur of metal, perhaps once part of another element that has now broken away and is missing. The underside of the artefact is undecorated. It is thicker in the centre. Possibly this is two layers of metal, perhaps a projecting tab which has been bent over and flattened against the main object. A groove on each side if the…
