County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast lead probable spindle whorl of discoidal shape and possible Iron Age or Roman date, about 100 BC - AD 410. It conforms to Walton Rogers form B1 (Walton Rogers 2007, pp. 24-25): both faces are flat; the sides are vertical, the faces being the same size; and the section is rectangular. It is 30.2mm in diameter and 3.7mm thick, with a central circular perforation 4.5mm in diameter. It weighs 24.01g. The smallness of the aperture suggests that this whorl might date from the Roman era or earlier. There is no decoration, and the object has a patchy grey and creamy white patina.

Broad period: ROMAN
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast lead pan weight of probable Roman date. Description: The weight is a roughly flat-conical shape although irregularly formed. The weight has raised decoration or roman numerals/tally on the top. Measurements: 24.37mm in diameter, 8.95mm thick and 25.7g in weight. Discussion: The weight is relatively simple and dating such simple weight sis difficult in this case the weight is very close to weighing one roman ounce or unica and thus a roman date is tentatively suggested.

Lead possible curse tablet. A small tightly rolled rectangular offcut of cast lead sheet of thickness 1.6mm, with a neatly flattened end; patinated. The small size distinguishes this from rolled sheet net sinkers, while the crisp finish tends to distinguish this from offcuts formed by trimming other objects and subsequently gathered for recycling - though, of course, any profession might include obsessively tidy folk among its practitioners, including the workers of lead. In view of the potential interest of the piece, the finder is to be commended for not attempting to unroll the obje…

Object type: STEELYARD WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Rotherham
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A lead and iron probable steelyard weight of probable Roman date, AD 43 - 410. It is a narrow cone of lead, truncated at the top with a flat end from which the stud of an iron attachment loop projects. The other end is rounded, with a central conical depression. The sides are slightly faceted, and there is a deep gouge, probably post depositional damage, but still patinated, on one face. The weight has a light grey patina. It is 39mm long, 23mm in diameter and is 110g. This mass is roughly equal to one third of a Roman pound (libra), though the missing iron loop would also add mass.
