Broad period: ROMAN
County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

Lead vessel repair or pot mend. A small neat oval cast plug to mend a hole in a vessel wall of thickness 3.4mm. Patinated. Fragments of a sandy orange oxidised fabric are trapped in the mend, which is flat and tidy on the outer side of the vessel and slightly less tidy within where the lead was poured. The small size and neat finish may point to a roman date which the fabric may tend to conform. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410. Length: 25mm, Width: 20.2mm, Thickness: 11.8mm, Weight: 27.70gms

Complete lead and iron steelyard weight of Roman date (c. 43 - 410 AD).

Lead weight. A cast globular weight of a significant mass exceeding 500gms [the limit of weighing machines available to this reporter]. Patinated, with numerous straight cuts in its sides. The finder correctly notes the similarity of the object to those steelyard weights ascribed to the Roman period, though it lacks any evidence for means of suspension enabling it to function in that way - unless the cut-marks were deliberately inflicted to furnish tying notches. The object has a slightly flattened base which would at least enable its function as a standing weight. Suggested date: pos…

A complete lead vessel repair or pot mend. The object is an irregular oval shape with a groove running around the centre of the outer edge where it would have sat within a break in a vessel originally.
