Broad period: ROMAN
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead steelyard weight. A cast ovoid weight with a central moulded aperture of diameter 7.3mm. Dented and abraded, patinated overall. This would appear to be a Roman weight from which the iron suspension loop was withdrawn leaving no trace of its presence, so before the object was deposited. The mass is uncertain, though considerably exceeding the 500gm limit of scales available to this reporter. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410. Length: 60.3mm, Diameter: 47.7mm

Lead musket ball. Cast ball, with a flattened patch of diameter 8.7mm, possibly from a ramrod or from inclusion in a multiple load, slightly flattened by impact on an adjacent side; patinated.

A complete lead and iron standing weight of uncertain date. It is conical in shape with a small, damaged iron suspension loop protruding from the apex and a round flat base. Simple weights like this one were used from the Roman to post-medieval periods and as such are difficult to date precisely. Diameter at base: 20.17mm, length: 24.11mm, weight: 29.61g

County: North Lincolnshire

Lead weight. A flat-sided weight cut from thick cast sheet, and subsequently pierced with a central hole of diameter c.2mm. Lightly patinated. The mass might suggest this to have been a weight representing one [slightly underweight] half averdepois ounce. The slightly eccentric form may suggest the halving with an obliquely angled cut of a larger rectangular object. The piercing may signal its subsequent conversion to use as a fishing line weight. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1750. Length: 18.4mm, Width: 15.1mm, Thickness: 7.3mm, Weight: 13.88gms

Lead weight. Cast oval flat-sided weight; patinated overall. The mass could suggest this to represent four [slightly overweight] units of 4.43gms, as used in the Viking-Age 'kingdom' of York and Dublin for transactions in silver bullion. However, a small [length 6mm] hollow on the base (as cast) appears to be of heater shield shape. If a fortuitous dimple, the earlier credentials of the object could be upheld. If, however, it is a stamped mark, it may point to official verification of an admittedly uncertain value in post-medieval times. Suggested date: Unknown, Early Medieval to Post-…

Lead weight. A cast conical weight with a slightly sunken flat base which may suggest casting in an open mould. An off-centre conical pit in the base, of depth c.15mm, may arise from the presence of a handle to facilitate lifting the object from the mould. Fiercely abraded and patinated overall. The mass may suggest this to have been a standing weight representing one half of a libra, or Roman pound (327.5gms). Suggested date: Roman, 43-410.
