A complete lead or lead alloy weight, probably Loom Weight. The date is uncertain though probably of the Roman to Post Medieval period (AD 43 - AD 1900). The object is cylindrical with a sub-oval perforation through the object to facilitate attachment.

Lead alloy weight of 63.6g (2.25oz) with iron suspension loop. The loop, which has been bent, has an internal diameter of 6.5mm and is 5.9mm thick, The weight itself is cast around this loop and comprises an irregular rounded cylinder 23.7mm high, varying in diameter from 21.6 to 27.8mm, likely in part due to post-depositional crushing and distortion. Possibly a Roman steelyard weight, circa 1st - 4th century AD.

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A composite lead/iron object of indeterminate date and use but, it does have the look of 'age'. Consisting of lead crudely moulded around an iron bar it probably dates to the Roman period but could be a lot later too; c. 100 - 1500 AD. The lead is cast into an irregular ball form, around the flat rectangular section of iron, which appears to curve away from the main body of the lead, perhaps to form a large loop, or fixing device. Dating and use is problematic, but it may be Roman, based on other local finds. As to use, it is possibly a lead mounting plug or clamp for an iron attachmen…

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast lead alloy object in the form of a pyramid with the vague impression of having an octagonal base/sides. Of uncertain date and use, this object could be dated from the Roman period, to the post medieval. Found in proximity to an early medieval find, it may fit that period. As to use, it may be a simple weight or perhaps, a gaming piece. There is no visible decoration and the base has a modestly domed form which may give support to the notion of a gaming piece, being easily moved on a gaming surface.. The surface has encrusted oxidation and surface 'crazing'.

A complete cast lead alloy miniature axe head of probable Roman date (AD 43-409). The object is wedge-shaped; the axe head has a solid, square butt, slender blade with one flat edge (the top) while the lower edge of the blade is curved downwards. There appears to be an attempt at piercing the butt from either side after casting, but the holes do not meet nor go all the way through the butt. Axes, mainly from religious shrines and graves, form the largest group of miniature tools found from Roman Britain. For similar examples on the PAS database see SUSS-571122; LEIC-751012; FAKL-B0C080…

A complete lead-alloy steelyard weight of possible Roman date (AD 43-410). The weight is roughly bi-conical in form consisting of an upper-section and larger lower section which each expand and meet at an off-centred circumerential ridge. From the top of the weight extends a suspension loop comprised of an iron bar that is rectangular in section. Above the circumerential ridge is a series of vertical linear markings that extend slightly over the ridge in places. The weight is very worn with several pits and linear gouges across the surface. The weight measures 59mm in height including …

A complete lead-alloy Roman figurine dating to the period c. 43-410, taking the form of the bust of Minerva. Minerva is facing forward wearing a crested helmet, her hair is styled into a bun and is wearing draped robes. At the base of the bust there is a lobed crescent, but it is unclear what it is representing. There is a notch on each edge of the underside of the bust. The bust attaches to a half-spherical base with a very crude underside via a thin shaft, it is possible this terminal/base is a part of the casting process and was intended to be removed at the base of the bust. The f…
