A complete lead-alloy weight dating from the medieval to Post Medieval periods (1100-1800AD). The object is circular in plan and has been pierced which shows some signs of wear from being suspended. The back of the object is smooth but the upper surface appears to be decorated with randomly placed pellets. Although it is possible that this is just a result of the casting. It is unlikely that this was used as a spindle whorl since the off-set piercing would cause the spindle to spin unevenly. It is more likely to be some form of hanging weight, or net weight. Diameter: 33.5mm; inte…

Small circular cast cu-alloy weight, probably dating 1700 to 1900AD. The weight is circular with a wide raised rim on the top and an indented centre on the back.

A complete lead Pan Weight of Medieval date (AD 1100-1400). The object is sub-circular in plan with a raised design on one side. The design is composed of an equal armed cross with a pellet in each quarter. The object has slightly tapering sides which leaves the base slightly wider than the top. The base is flat and undecorated. Biggs and Withers (2000) illustrate several similar weights, e.g p.24, no.35 and 38. They suggest (p.21) the cross and pellet design relates to contemporary coinage and that such weights were used to measure large bullion payments. They suggest (ibid) an 11th …
