Lead possible vessel fragment. A shard from the wall of a bowl of estimated diameter 140mm with a rounded and slightly thickened rim. A relief motif on the outer surface appears - at least to the eye of faith - to show a bird or beast with wing or flipper and a long curved neck with open jaws or beak to the right. The ends of the fragment are torn, but the internal surface appears as if partly melted, and a dense white patina appears at this point only. The soft and massy material does not seem ideal to form a vessel, though a range of small leaden containers or liners for containers a…

Lead possible spindle whorl. Cast annular or tubular cylindrical object with a central moulded aperture of diameter [now] c.13mm. Shrinkage lines indicate this was cast in an open mould. Patinated, and indented by a distorting impact. If a whorl, this might be an example of Walton Rogers form B. Suggested date: possibly Early Medieval, 950-1100.

Lead weight. Cast conical weight with a central probably drilled aperture of diameter 3.5mm. The object was cast in an open mould, as is suggested by shrinkage lines on its base. Lightly patinated. The hole might indicate provision for suspension as a steelyard weight, a category of object to which a Roman date is conventionally applied. These usually bear traces of a ferrous metal loop, here absent. The mass does not immediately suggest close correspondence with any system of Roman or later date were use as a standing weight envisaged. The good surface condition might also point to a …

Lead and iron flywheel. Cast plano-convex whorl of lead with an iron pin of shaft diameter 8.8mm passing into its flat side, and spread or expanded to a diameter of 13.3mm on the convex side of the whorl. The lead is densely patinated and the iron corroded. The flywheel is mentioned by the author Theophilus in the early 12th century as assisting the operation of various devices and the principle of its use also informs the working of the potter's wheel. This reporter cannot, however, suggest what use this example may have enjoyed. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1800. Diameter (wh…

A complete cast lead pan weight, circular in plan and rectangular in profile with VIII stamped on the front face. It weighs 226g, which is just less than eight Averdupois ounces. The style of the letters suggests cAD 1600 - 1800. It is 47.25mm in diameter, c14.5mm thick, though this varies a little.The lead appears to have been battered a little out of shape, perhaps while in the ground, but there is also evidence that an edge may have been taken off, while there are also one or two small accretions of lead which suggest additions.
