Lead vessel repair or pot mend. A small cast plug to mend a hole in a vessel wall of thickness c.2mm, slightly spread away from the site of the repair ?on the outer side? of the vessel; patinated. The small size and neat finish are features conventionally thought to indicate a Roman date. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410. Length: 22.8mm, Width: 18.5mm, Thickness: 7.3mm, Weight: 12.26gms

Lead vessel repair or pot mend. A small cast plug to mend a hole in a vess4el wall of thickness c.2.5mm, patinated and fiercely abraded. The small size and neat finish are thought to be characteristic of Roman pot mends, and the abraded condition of this example would be consistent with a greater age than most accompanying material. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410. Diameter: 15.8mm, Thickness: 8.1mm, Weight: 10.42gms

Object type: STEELYARD WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A crude, possible steelyard weight of possible Roman date, about AD 43 - 410. It is a bi-conical piece of lead with iron projecting at each end. The iron at one end is sufficiently central that it could have been a suspension loop, but at the other end it is well to the side. Weights of this form are usually considered to be Roman, but the steelyard was also used in the Medieval and Post Medieval periods. The lead has a grey and white patina and is pitted. It is 22.8mm in diameter and 19.8mm thick. It weighs 43.08gm. Allowing for corrosion having caused some loss of mass, this could b…

Lead weight. Cast conical to pear-shaped weight, flattened at its top, with a central drilled aperture of diameter 5mm. A series of angled cuts surround the aperture at the narrower end of the weight, in a rough left hand spiral arrangement, and these are perhaps distinct in their origin from other light and adventitious nicks on the body of the object. Patinated. The hole could indicate the provision of a separate loop, a typical feature of Roman steelyard weights. If so, it was withdrawn before corrosion could mark the object. The mass does not seem to relate closely to contemporary …

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Rotherham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A crudely cast lead spindle whorl of probable Late Iron Age to Roman date, about 300 BC - AD 410. It is of Walton Rogers Form C2 having no flat faces and carinated sides. The whorl is sub-circular and bi-convex. The central aperture is 5mm diameter. Whorls with central holes of less than 6mm dianmeter are more likely to be Iron Age or Roman than those with larger holes, however, this is not conclusive and a later date up until AD 1600 cannot be ruled out. The whorl has a patchy, cream patina. It is 27.8mm in diameter and 12.5mm thick. It weighs 15.77gm.

A lead spindle whorl of probable Late Iron Age to Roman date, about 300 BC - AD 410. It is of Walton Rogers Form B2 with two flat faces and curved sides. The central aperture is only 4mm in diameter. The whorl has a cream patina. It is 24.1mm in diameter and 4.7mm thick. It weighs 17.29gm. Form B spindle whorls are known from the late Iron Age onwards. They are common from AD 900, but also appear in York in the 700's. There is also evidence from Goltho that they were used in the 10th-12th centuries. The small size of the central aperture may suggest that a late Iron Age or Roman date i…

A lead Roman to Post Medieval weight, dating to AD 43-1800. It is a conical weight with a rounded apex in which an iron loop has been inserted and sealed with lead alloy still visible on the base of the weight. The sides of the weight have traces of iron corrosion as well as scratches and dentings. Weights such as this have been used from Roman through to Post Medieval times and numerous weight-related functions are likely, perhaps as a steelyard weight, standing weight, net weight or fishing weight. Close examples are NLM-ADDC7B, NARC-1D2E44, Diameter: 27.28 mm Height: 44.43 mm

A Roman lead ingot, or "pig" probably dating to the period c. AD 150-402. The ingot is rectangular in plan and trapezoidal in cross-section with rounded corners and no inscription visible on the top. The top has a raised rim around a recessed rectangular panel. The rim is also trapezoid in shape with bevelled inner and outer faces. The rim varys between 20.4 and 21mm wide on one long side 23.4 and 23.3 on other. The panel is recessed 1.8mm and 2.5mm at the ends deepening to 6.1mm in the centre. The top of the panel is ridged, the form of the ridges suggesting semi-molton lead was smoot…

A section of lead with the remnants of an iron nail which appears to be Roman through it dating to c AD 43-410 (but may be later). The object comprises a sub-rectangular piece of lead. At one end, the lead has a flat vertical face and curved corners. The other end appears to have been broken off or cut as the horizontal line is not even and the vertical end face is sloping in on the back. There is an iron nail through the lead with the shank broken off. Around the nail on the back of the object are brown marks possibly evidencing a washer of the shape of the object to which the section…

Complete lead spindle whorl of uncertain date within a probable Roman to medieval date range (c. 43 - 1500 AD). The spindle whorl is of uneven shape; it is flat on the underside with a domed upper face and a central circular perforation hole. The object is circular in plan. The central hole is now filled with organic detriment due to deposition in the ground. The surface of the object is rough and pitted. It is white in colour. The spindle whorl is 27.00mm in diameter and 7.00mm in thickness. The diameter of the hole is 7.00mm. The object weighs 19.24g. Lead objects are difficult to d…

Lead possible miniature object with a possibly moulded hole of diameter 3.4mm at its broader end. Patinated, with apparent wear on one side of the hole. The finder kindly suggests this to be a miniature axe head, a familiar category of Roman artefact whose discovery is sometimes linked to shrines or temples. These sometimes took the form of archaic tools or weapons, and in this case, if such a resemblance were envisaged, the model might have been an 'axe hammer' or maul of early Bronze Age date, or perhaps a contemporary carpenter's axe. The hole suggests a shaft of perishable material…
