Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: North Lincolnshire

Lead and Iron Weight. Cast discoid weight with the ends of an embedded ferrous object visible in opposite sides. Patinated overall. The mass may suggest this to represent a [slightly overweight] Viking Age ora/ore of c.24gms.

Weights with embedded objects are a long-accepted class of Early Medieval object, t…
