Record ID: YORYM-437F4C
Object type: SHOT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: York
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete lead-alloy musket ball or pistol shot of Post-Medieval date, c.1600 - 1900. The object is spherical with a faint casting line around the circumference. A flat spot is present to one side of the object which may indicate impact or be the result of ramming into a weapon. Diameter: 13.1mm; Weight: 12.1g. It is difficult to precisely assign projectiles to specific calibres of gun because most excavated shot will have lost weight, there was a huge variety of firearms and balls imperfectly manufactured, and because lead varies in weight. The weight of the shot suggests they may …

County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper-alloy buckle of Post-Medieval date, c.AD 1660 - 1720. The buckle is a double looped sub-oval with concave bifid sides with moulded triple knops to either side of the spindle holes. Moulded lozenge shaped pin rests are present on the outer edge of each loop. The spindle remains with a worn and corroded chape looped around. The terminal of the chape and the pin have been lost to old breaks. Iron corrosion covers much of the surface of the buckle, particularly around the spindle, suggesting it is constructed of iron. The metal has a shiny grey/green patina and is wor…

Record ID: YORYM-4154E9
Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete lead-alloy standing weight of uncertain date. The weight is conical with a flat base and rounded top. No decoration is apparent. The metal has a mid-grey patina and is worn. The weight is 57.5mm tall, 46.7mm - 24.4mm in diameter and weighs 661g. Lead weights were commonly used from the Iron Age through to the post-medieval period and are difficult to date with any certainty without supporting archaeological context. The function of such objects is also difficult to determine. The dating of lead objects of this general type is problematic, and their use is invariably uncertain.

A complete cast lead-alloy weight of medieval to post-medieval date, c.AD 1300 - 1600. The weight is conical with a rounded top and flat base and was likely formed by pouring molten lead into a thimble casing then allowing it to cool. The object is 19.2mm tall, 17.5mm to 13.9mm in diameter and weighs 32.8g. Although this object has been described as a weight, it may also be a gaming piece. Thimbles have been in common use in England from the 14th century onwards and Geoff Egan (2010, p.265) states that no medieval thimble indisputably dating from before the 14th century has been foun…
