A Post Medieval copper alloy trade weight. The weight is circular in plan and has a raised rim at the top, forming a cup shape. There are stamp marks visible; at the centre is a circle and arranged around this is a crom with a 'W' underneath, a square topped shield with a cross within, and a third unclear stamp. The 'W' probably stands for William III (AD 1694 - 1702).

Cast lead-alloy weight, probably a spindle whorl dating from the medieval period, that is c. AD1200-1500. The weight is circular, with a large perforation in the centre that held the spindle. The surface is very worn. Unlike many other spindle whorls of the same date range, this example has a very distinct moulded decoration: There are five moulded flat knops on the outside of the whorl with incised (probably also moulded) lines between each two knops. Lead weights like these are common finds, but only rarely from excavated contexts which is why date and origin are difficult to pin…

Lead Weight. Cast discoid weight with bevelled edges, thicker to one side than to the other, grey and unpatinated. The mass does not correspond with recent systems for the measurement of weight, though it does equal 19.7 Viking-Age Scandinavian units of 4.07gms for the weighing of bullion. A discoid form is known for weights of this period, as from Cottam, East Riding of Yorkshire, though the fresh state of the metal must introduce significant doubt as to whether this object saw use at that early date. Suggested date: possibly Early Medieval, 850-950. Diameter: 39.0mm, Thickness: 8.1m…
