Lead weight. Cast pyramidal four-sided flat-based weight. The mass may suggest this was intended to represent one quarter of an averdepois ounce. The finder kindly suggests this might be a game piece, but these are usually of a different, onion-shaped, form. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1700. Height: 15.7mm, Width: 10.8mm, Thickness: 9.6mm, Weight: 7.44gms

Complete lead weight of medieval to post-medieval date (c. 1200 - 1800 AD). The weight is circular in form and irregular in thickness. The back of the weight is flat, while the upper face carries the faint raised design of some sort of motif within an inner circle. Unfortunately, the object is too worn for the motif to be identified. The object appears to have been coated in some substance and now has a light brown patina. It is 20.10mm in diameter and 3.82mm in thickness. It weighs 9.8g. Lead objects are difficult to date without archaeological context. That this object should be ide…

Complete copper-alloy circular trade weight of post-medieval date (c. 1500 - 1800 AD). The weight is circular in plan and rectangular in section. The outer edge on both sides is slightly stepped, resulting in the appearance of two concentric circles. There is a design stamped in the centre of one side, probably a crown; this is a common design on weights of this sort (see for instance, LVPL-3B9722). The surface of the object is worn and slightly corroded and the stamp is not easily visible. The object is 19.90mm in diameter, 3.95mm in thickness and weighs 8.4g. Further parallels recor…

The face with two projections have short punched linear marks at right angle to each face of the central iron shaft.

Roman bi-conical cast lead steelyard weight with rusted iron at the top and bottom ends indicating the original existence of suspension loops. One end is flattened at a slight angle, possibly indicating the loss of a small amount of lead. At the other end a pyramidal piece of iron protrudes c3mm from the lead. It is possible that an iron rod runs through the weight from end to end but this cannot be verified.The central ridge where the two conical ends meet is slightly rounded. There are no signs of decoration though there are several diagonal incisions on one of the cones; these are d…

Large bi-facial lead disc of uncertain function, possibly a weight, probably of post-medieval date (c. 1500 - 1800 AD). On one side of the disc is the hollowed image of a left-facing male bust, possibly with a beaded crown in the style of Roman coins. The design is less clear on the other side of the disc but appears to depict a winged lion, also depressed in the surface. The object has a light grey patina. It is 39.18mm in diameter, 5.59mm in thickness and weighs 47.66g. The function of this object is not clear. Post-medieval lead trade weights of similar size are known (eg, SF-5300E…

Lead weight formed from folded sheet of uncertain date within the period c. 43 - 1700 AD. The object is broadly rectangular in plan but of irregular shape. It has been made by folding the two ends of a long rectangular lead sheet in until they overlap on one side and meet on the other side. The object has a cream-coloured patina. The fold is now filled with organic detriment. The object is 16.75mm in length, 14.47mm in width and 10.35mm at maximum thickness. It weighs 10g. There are a number of similar examples of objects made from folded lead sheets on the database. These have been i…

Cast lead alloy or lead, perforated circular probable weight or spindle whorl of medieval to post-medieval date 1400 - 1800AD. The weight has a circular perforation. The weight has a series of raised lines along the circumference of both faces which differ. These may indicate that the weight was something akin to the modern LANCUM-F199F4, and used in a similar way. The metal's appearance suggests it is Post Medieval. However it could well date back to the medieval period. The diameter is 30mm and the weight 2.85g. In the "Finds Recording Guide", Geake (2001, p66) points out that: "The…

Lead possible weight. Cast discoid flat-sided weight with a tiny [diameter c.1.3mm] pierced hole off-centre; patinated. One of two similar objects reported together from the same general location. The hole would admit a fine cord, perhaps of horsehair, and may suggest a use as a fishing line weight, though a flat discoid form is unusual, and perhaps indicates the personal preference of an individual. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1500. Diameter: 20.6mm, Thickness: 2.8mm, Weight: 7.71gms
