Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead perforated weight of probably Post Medieval to Modern date, about AD 1500 - 1900. It is flat and rectangular in section, and an elongated octagon in plan. There is a keyhole shaped hole through the weight at one end (rounded at one end and narrower and rectangonal at the other); it is not clear whether it was always intended to be this shape, or whether it has been worn by suspension on a loop or rope. The edges and corners of the weight are worn and rounded. This may be from water damage, since the weight was found near a river. This has led to speculation that the weight may h…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a cast lead armorial cloth seal. The fragment consists of a strip, cut or torn across the diameter of a circular seal, 32 mm long, 14.5 mm wide and 1.5 mm thick, weighing 6 g. The fragment is damaged at both ends, so the precise diameter of the seal is uncertain. The front face is decorated with a double-arched St Edward's crown over a Tudor rose, within a ring of pellets. The back face is strengthened by a thicker band of lead, 3 mm wide, across the diameter of the seal. Egan (1994) illustrates a complete circular shaped cloth seal with an apparently identical design on…

A complete lead Token of Post Medieval date (AD 1500-1850). The object is biface token of Powell Type 12. It is decorated with a cross and a central pellet on one face and a diagonal grid on the other. Diameter: 18.44mm, Thickness: 3.53mm, Weight: 6.4g. Lead tokens had a wide variety of potential uses such as tallies, gaming pieces, tickets, weights, etc. and are believed to have been locally produced; they are therefore difficult to date precisely. Those carrying initials are generally deemed to be post-Medieval in date (1500-1850) (Fletcher 2005, 50-66), those which seem to mimic…

A lead musket ball dating to the post-medieval period c.17th-19th centuries. Description: The musket ball is spherecal and appears to have a sprue scar remaining as well as distinct 'flash' visible along the mould line. Likely this was caused by the two mould halves having been poorly seated. Normally lost through bumping in transport or through use, here it is intact, suggesting the bullet was found close to its point of manufacture and was never fired.

Lead possible weight. Cast rectangular weight with lightly bevelled upper edges, smooth regular surfaces and a slight patina. The mass does not immediately suggest correspondence with any particular system of measurement and, indeed, the good surface condition may suggest a more recent date. This might relate to those modern rectangular objects of lead which appear from their condition to have served ancillary functions to the operation of machinery, possibly as buffers, shock absorbers or similar inserted objects. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1700-1900. Length: 24.6mm, Width: 22.1m…
