A lead alloy weight of uncertain date. The weight is crudely conical in shape with a small lipped suspension hole slightly off centre at the wide end of the cone, which is concave. It is an off-white colour, mottled with patches of brown and has an irregular surface being extensively gouged and pitted. There is a gash evident partway across the wide end, which maybe the result of plough damage. It weighs 183.9gms, with a diameter of 34mm at the wide end, is 30mm in height and the suspension hole has a diameter of 5mm Weights can be hard to date; due to being a functional artefact, for…

Copper alloy weight. Cast discoid weight with an upstanding rim, from a nested set. Central pits on both sides, and circumferentially inscribed lines on the inner side and rim, show the object was finished on a lathe. A stamp formed as a crown, and an adjacent mark now less distinct, suggest official inspection. The mass indicates a value of a [markedly underweight half] ounce. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1800. Diameter: 23.3mm, Height: 5.2mm, Weight: 13.35gms

Copper alloy probable weight. Cast basin-shaped weight from a nesting set, with circumferentially incised lines within and without and a deeper groove around the base of its wall which may arise from working on a lathe. The mass does not immediately suggest which system of measurement this object observes, which may itself hint at a specialist usage. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1550-1700. Diameter: 25.8mm, Height: 18.6mm, Thickness (wall): 1.2mm, Weight: 12.65gms

A probably late medieval (1400-1500) lead alloy 'shield' shaped weight, with flat top and convex sides, reaching a point opposite to the flat side. The reverse and sides of the object are flat and undecorated, while the remaining 'front' face has grooved decoration, all within a grooved line flanking the shape of the object. The decoration takes the form of a ring 10mm in diameter inside the pointed base of the shield. An inverted V above this creates a lozenge-shape with the edge-flanking grooved line. Above this is an unsymmetrical V with a central vertical line which reaches to the …

A complete lead trade weight of medieval to post-medieval date. The weight is shield shaped with a circular perforation through the pointed edge. A moulded relief design of three lions rampant left is present on the upper surface. The reverse is flat and undecorated. The metal has a light white patina and is worn.

Lead alloy weight. Cast flat discoid weight with crudely stamped markings of four parallel bars on one side: grey metal, with a bright patch revealed by recent abrasion. The mass may suggest this to represent one [very slightly overweight] dram (of 1.77gms) under the averdepois system, while the condition may suggest a fairly recent date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1800-1900. Diameter: 14mm, Thickness: 1.5mm, Weight: 1.82gms

Copper alloy weight. Cast discoid weight with a depressed upper face with lathe-turned lines as a border and bearing inspection counter-stamps of a cinquefoil and an open crown. The crown may have been the mark of the Grocer's Company from the 15th century. Despite having been checked twice, the mass indicates this to be an underweight quarter of an averdepois ounce - a value kindly suggested by the finder, though it is closer to two [overweight] drachms of 3.41gms. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1600. Diameter: 18.5mm, Thickness: 3.7mm, Weight: 6.15gms

Lead weight. Cast weight, probably initially of a bar shape, but with an additional sleeve or jacket of thick [c.3mm] lead sheet wrapped around it to increase its weight. A hole of diameter 3mm is drilled at the narrower end of the completed composite, carried through both sleeve and core. Lightly patinated. The form resembles that of 14th-century weights from Hull and elsewhere, though a composite construction is very unusual. As with the drilled aperture, it suggests necessity or improvisation, possibly on the part of an angler seeking to extend his cast. Suggested date: Medieval, 13…

Late Early Medieval to early Post Medieval, cast lead alloy or lead, biconical weight, probably a spindle whorl or net weight. There is worn decoration on both faces. The decoration consists of six pointed stars with pellets inside the points, arranged around the central perforation. In the "Finds Recording Guide", Geake (2001, p66) points out that: "The function of lead weights would have varied, from spindle-whorls to fishing weights to trade weights." She adds that spindle whorls should ideally be circular and must have a central perforation (ibid.). It is possible, therefore, tha…

Lead weight. Cast conical standing weight, with a slightly sunken base which may suggest manufacture in an open mould. Lightly patinated, and deeply gouged by ploughstrike. The mass may suggest this to represent a slightly overweight Tower Pound (350gms), a measure used for checking silver coin in bulk - perhaps unlikely in this case - but also for bread. Suggested date: Medieval, 1150-1250. Diameter: 49.5mm, Height: 38.1mm, Weight: c.375gms
