A complete cast lead-alloy weight or spindle whorl dating from the late Early Medieval to Medieval periods, c. 1000-1500.

A complete lead Weight of probably Medieval date (AD 1200-1500). The object is plano-convex weight with a central circular aperture with a diameter of 11.34mm. The metal is a dark cream in colour with a slightly pitted patina. Lead weights like these are common finds, but only rarely from excavated contexts which is why date and origin are difficult to pinpoint. Decorated lead-alloy weights are very rare finds in excavations, but are often found by metal detectorists. They are usually biconical or cylindrical in shape and are decorated on both faces with raised dots and radiating line…

Lead weight. Cast pump seal weight, comprising a straight-sided flat plate with one curved end and one straight bevelled end, with a central waisted lug on the same side as the bevel. Patinated. The lug would attach the weight to the oiled leather seal of a water pump, which were operated manually until the 19th century. This is from a fairly small example. These pumps were used for major engineering and drainage works in the Humber region from the early 17th century, and the seal weights are often recorded with remnants of the seal attached, which points to their continued use into t…

Lead weight. Cast shield-shaped flat-sided weight with a prominent rim and Arms modelled in relief: the upper half of the shield bears a saltire with a pellet in each angle; the lower part bears a possibly cruciform figure, though this may be a misreading of a more complex if poorly rendered motif. This probably represents one slightly underweight quarter of an averdepois pound. Suggested date: Late Medieval, 1350-1500. Length: 45.2mm, Width: 33.7mm, Thickness: 10.8mm, Weight: 111.67gms

Lead weight. Cast discoid weight with nine protruding ribs equidistantly paced around a rim which stands slightly proud of an indented surface, the lowermost as the object was cast. A light steel staple is embedded in the upper surface, possibly to help with the extraction of the object from its mould. Patinated. The mass might suggest this to represent an underweight quarter of an averdepois pound. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1800. Diameter: 38.6mm, Thickness: 12mm, Weight: 111.06gms
