A Post Medieval ceramic weight, possible a seine net sinker dating from AD 1600-1800. The net sinker is axe shaped, it is triangle in plan and it has a tapering cross-section. There is a perforation at the peak and a knife cut V shaped groove running through from back to front along the top edge. The fabric of the weight is oxidised and orange in colour. The weight has a strong resemblance to Roman loom weights and it is possible it may be identified as such, though the knife cut groove on the top edge differentiate the two artefacts. Mike Webber suggests these are post medieval se…
