Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead possible weight. Cast sub-rectangular weight with one rounded and thicker end, and with a sunken panel apparently formed by stamping with a die or coin of 26mm diameter which appears to have had a plain perimeter of width 3.5mm - in the manner of the 'cartwheel' coinage of 1797, though that issue did not include coins of this size. Both ends of the object also bear multiple crescentic and triangular stamp or bite marks, perhaps more likely the latter, which are carried over onto the underside at the straight end of the object. Lightly patinated. The mass might suggest this to repr…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead pipe. A short length of a pipe with thick wall and a central channel of diameter 10.2mm; patinated. One end is slightly bevelled and perhaps slightly splayed, perhaps suggesting a particular and localised function for the object; its construction appearing too heavy for it to be an offcut from a water pipe. Patinated overall and dented or lightly gouged at one [the splayed] end. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1900. Length: 34.9mm, Diameter: 22.7mm, Thickness (wall): 8.8mm, Weight: 112.28gms

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead shot. Cast rifle ball with a circumferential belt to engage with the rifling grooves in the gun barrel. Impressed or stamped damage appears in a limited patch; patinated. The distinctive form of the shot is associated the Brunswick rifle, though this is for a sporting gun of lighter bore. The surface markings resemble those associated with a turn-off breech loading mechanism of the 17th and 18th centuries, though this shot is for a later type of gun. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1840-1860. Diameter (at belt): 14.7mm, Weight: 11.92gms

Lead possible spindle whorl. A cast plano-convex weight with a central moulded aperture of diameter 11.2mm on one side, though the aperture is nearly closed by a flow of lead due to miscasting, on the convex side, which is also rough in its surface texture. Shrinkage lines suggest it was cast in an open mould. Patinated. A deep nick resembling a tying notch also appears on the flat face, revealing grey metal, though this may have been emphasised or formed by damage at the time of discovery or shortly thereafter - similar marks appear inside the hole. If a whorl, this may represent a co…

Object type: MUSKET BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead musket ball. Cast ball with a flattened patch at opposed ends, probably from its inclusion in a multiple load, while a flattened circumferential belt may arise from set up, an effect occurring at the instant of firing an unwadded projectile. The mass, at about one ounce, may suggest this to have been fired from a smoothbore muzzle loading firearm of military specification, perhaps a light musket, pistol or carbine. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1800. Diameter: 17.5mm, Weight: 28.04gms

Lead shot. Cast ball with mould line and a stub of sprue; unusually, retaining the grey tint of the metal. The mass may suggest this to be from a charge of buckshot or a shotgun load, or possibly from a light fowling piece, while the surface condition may point to a relatively recent date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1700-1800. Diameter: 9.3mm, Weight: 3.99gms

Object type: GAMING PIECE

County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Complete lead gaming-piece or, possibly, weight of uncertain date within the range c. 43 - 1600 AD. The object is circular in plan and flat on the underside, while the upper face has been moulded with three angled planes leaving three ridges that transect the object into thirds. The object has a matt, grey patina and is uneven in thickness. It is very small, being 14.15mm in diameter. It is 6.10mm at maximum thickness and weighs 6g exactly. Lead objects such as these are difficult to date precisely without archaeological context. While no close parallel has been found, this object be…

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A near complete but worn and abraded flat lead non-heraldic personal seal matrix of Medieval date c.AD 1200-1350. Description: The matrix is flat and circular in plan and with an incomplete triangular lug at the top of the reverse side at the apex of a raised ridge. No evidence of a suspension hole remains in the usual longitudal position. There appears to be drilled hole at the apex of the seal where the lug meats the die face but as it doesn't appear to exit the lug or the matrix it is uncertain what purpose it served. The raised ridge is flanked by two decorative lozenges, quartere…

Lead possible bung or stopper. Cast slightly tapered cylindrical object with flat upper and lower sides and a moulded hole of diameter 6.4mm; patinated. The sides bear a graffito or scratched inscription made with a very thin point. Depending on which way up this is examined, it might read: CANIEA ending on a shield-shaped panel 'charged' with three straight strokes, or perhaps: MARIC[--] if inverted - other readings of these spidery characters are entirely possible, and it is uncertain whether they represent antique script or or childish scrawl.

Lead shot. Cast ball with an indented surface arising from impact against a hard curving surface. The mass may suggest this to have been fired from a smoothbore muzzle loading firearm of military specification, perhaps a pistol or carbine. Unusually for this locally abundant object type, the ball lacks surface patina. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1800. Diameter: 18.2mm, Weight: 21.90

Lead shot. Cast cylindrical slug, with one end flattened by an oblique impact against a hard surface; patinated. This probably served as a supplementary load to increase the 'stopping power' of a round fired from a smoothbore muzzle loading firearm of military specification: probably a pistol to judge from the diameter of the slug. The use of specialised forms of shot was especially characteristic of the 17th century. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1700. Diameter: 15.1mm, Length: 17.4mm, Weight: 30.96gms
