County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete lead steelyard weight with partial iron suspension loop dating to the Roman period (c.AD 43 - AD 410). The weight is biconical with a central perforation through which the square-sectioned suspension loop remains. The upper half is longer than the bottom giving the object a kite shape in cross-section. The weight is patinated a dull grey-white typical of patinated lead. The overall dimensions are as follows: 33.44mm in length, 32.85mm in diameter and 94.7g in weight.

Lead spindle whorl. A cast whorl of plano-convex section with a central moulded aperture of diameter 6.9mm, cf. Walton Rogers form A1; patinated. Traces of equidistantly spaced radial ribs appear on the convex surface, along with a single neatly incised line. The mass may suggest a primary function spinning a yarn, while the small aperture size may point to an Anglo-Saxon date. Against this, the appearance of radial decoration is a feature more usually associated with larger biconical whorls of the early post-medieval period, and those 'one sided' versions cast from them as copies. Sug…

Object type: MUSKET BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead musket ball. Cast ball with a deep cut and a shorter cut across it, and lighter cuts; patinated. The mass, at well over an ounce, indicates this to be for use with a smoothbore muzzle loading firearm of military specification. Objects identified by this reporter as musket balls are those shot weighing in excess of one averdepois ounce, an arbitrary distinction from lighter shot and one encouraged by the circumstances of deposition of a large number [over 730] of such objects recorded in northern Lincolnshire. In this case, the ball approaches one twelth of a 16 ounce pound, a mass…

Lead possible vessel fragment. A shard from the wall of a bowl of estimated diameter 140mm with a rounded and slightly thickened rim. A relief motif on the outer surface appears - at least to the eye of faith - to show a bird or beast with wing or flipper and a long curved neck with open jaws or beak to the right. The ends of the fragment are torn, but the internal surface appears as if partly melted, and a dense white patina appears at this point only. The soft and massy material does not seem ideal to form a vessel, though a range of small leaden containers or liners for containers a…

Lead possible weight. Possibly a cast oval or discoid weight, severely gnawed by a child, vermin or other animal, patinated after this episode. The mass does not indicate close correspondence with any particular system, though this might have served in any. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Post-Medieval, 43-1800.

Lead possible spindle whorl. Cast annular or tubular cylindrical object with a central moulded aperture of diameter [now] c.13mm. Shrinkage lines indicate this was cast in an open mould. Patinated, and indented by a distorting impact. If a whorl, this might be an example of Walton Rogers form B. Suggested date: possibly Early Medieval, 950-1100.

Lead weight. Cast conical weight with a central probably drilled aperture of diameter 3.5mm. The object was cast in an open mould, as is suggested by shrinkage lines on its base. Lightly patinated. The hole might indicate provision for suspension as a steelyard weight, a category of object to which a Roman date is conventionally applied. These usually bear traces of a ferrous metal loop, here absent. The mass does not immediately suggest close correspondence with any system of Roman or later date were use as a standing weight envisaged. The good surface condition might also point to a …

An incomplete early post medieval lead two part cloth seal dating to c AD 1500 - 1700. There are a number of initials moulded into both parts of the seal but there is damage across half of the original diameter and on the face of one the parts so little can be discerned. On one face can be seen B W and on the other P, possibly L B. The tab which joins the two parts is present but broken. The item is 25.30mm in length and 19.93mm in width and weighs 5.90g.

A lead spindle whorl probably dating from the medieval to post medieval period. This artefact weighs 46.75g (1.65oz). The central circular perforation has a diameter of 9.4mm. The artefact is circular in shape with a maximum diameter of 30.0mm. The perforation through the whorl is cylindrical in shape, however the middle is slightly concave. The whorl has a sub-oval cross section with a slightly flattened circumferance. This flattened circumferance accounts for 5.9mm of the total depth. The depth of the artefact measures 9.9mm. The surface appears to be fairly smooth but there is evide…

Lead and iron flywheel. Cast plano-convex whorl of lead with an iron pin of shaft diameter 8.8mm passing into its flat side, and spread or expanded to a diameter of 13.3mm on the convex side of the whorl. The lead is densely patinated and the iron corroded. The flywheel is mentioned by the author Theophilus in the early 12th century as assisting the operation of various devices and the principle of its use also informs the working of the potter's wheel. This reporter cannot, however, suggest what use this example may have enjoyed. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1800. Diameter (wh…
