A cast lead spindle whorl or possibly weight. It is disc shaped, with a flat base and top and slightly rounded sides. It has a circular hole running through the centre, with a ridge around the hole. It is 27.0mm in diameter, 7.3 thick with a hole 9.9mm and weighs 26.37 grams. Plain spindle whorls and weights were cast locally in lead from the Roman period onwards and are hard to date precisely although most are late Medieval - Post Medieval.

Cast lead alloy decorated spindle whorl. The whorl is circular with a flat base and domed top, slightly flattened in the centre, and a circular hole running through the centre. The upper side is decorated with raised lines radiating out from the central hole, these are thought to help the spindle work as well as be decorative. It is 32.7 mm in diameter and 11.6 mm thick; weights 52.5 grams. Locally cast lead spindle whorls were in use from the Roman to Post Medieval period and are hard to date precisely.

Object type: CASTING WASTE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete lead-alloy piece of uncertain date: probably a piece of casting waste. It is a strip, triangular in section with very concave sides. One end is rounded the other has an old, almost square break. The lower side is slightly irregular. Emerging from the spine on the upper surface are six pellets spaced equally along its length. These extend down the sides and have all been truncated, with old breaks. They could be sprues from the casting process. It is 40.1mm long, 13.2mm wide, 4.8mm thick and weighs 8.40 grams.

County: West Sussex

Cast copper alloy stud attached to a broadly rectangular copper alloy sheet rove. The stud has a flattened sub-circular head and a blunted, twisted shaft of square cross-section. The rove is closely fitted to the head of the stud and the centre is convex. The metal is dark red-brown in colour with patches of off-white and light-green corrosion product. The date is uncertain although it is probably Roman or Post Medieval in date; this is supported by finds made in the vicinity. The rove is 13.5mm long, 11.0mm wide and 1.1mm thick excluding the stud shaft, 11.7mm including. It weighs 2…

Cast lead piece, probably a plain weight.. It is conical with a circular base, tapering sides and an irregular, broken top. There are numerous cuts and indents in the side. It is 49.8mm tall, 23.3mm in diameter at the base; it weighs 96 grams. Plain lead weights were made locally for a wide range of uses. They are therefore hard to date accurately and can be Roman - Post Medieval in date although most are from the latter part of this range.

A complete copper alloy decorated stud, possibly Roman. The head of the stud is broadly circular, with a mostly flat top. In the centre of the top is a slightly raised circle upon which is an incised circular line border 10.31mm in diameter. Within the border is an inscribed eagle, with outspread wings, the tips of which meet the circular line border but do not ingress upon it. The back of the head is slightly convex towards the integral shaft which is complete. The shaft itself is rectangular in section, thinning along its length to a flattened and slightly expanded rounded point. …

Object type: RING
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy ring with hexagonal cross section and slightly uneven thickness and width of unknown date. The object is undecorated but has long striations around its outer face, probably from filing or wear, and with two areas of wear where the ring is thinner. Diameter: 27.4mm, width: 4.0mm, Thickness of loop from: 4.6mm, to: 3.3mm, Weight: 7.13g. Such rings are largely undatable and can be as early as Iron Age, but it is most likely a Medieval to Post-Medieval horse harness ring, possibly to link two straps given how it is worn in two places.

A bent and corroded part of a cast copper-alloy sheet plate from a buckle of uncertain date. The object is sub-trapezoidal in shape. It tapers gradually from a width of 10.8mm at the attachment end to 7.0mm towards the terminal, beyond which the sides curve to a (now abraded) rounded terminal. At the opposite end there is an off-centre tab; the tab on the other side has been lost. This is a pair of rivet holes at the frame end with a third hole central at the terminal. The object has corroded to an orange-brown colour, with large patches of light-green and off-white corrosion produc…

A worn and corroded small cast lead weight in the shape of a frustum, or truncated cone. It is broadly trapezoidal in cross-section, with a flat base. It has a hole running right through its centre; the hole tapers slightly towards the top which has been flattened slightly at an angle: Dia.: 8.3 - 7.0mm. The artefact now has an off-white surface with denting all over, especially to the base. Such objects are undiagnostic and a wide date range is here given.

Two fragments of ceramic building material, both roughly quadrilateral in form. They both have oxidised surfaces, one light orange, the other mid orange. They both feature yellowy inclusions and seams from where the clay has not been mixed fully. Respectively, they measure 55.9 by 48.7 by 12.0mm and 74.55 by 36.6 by 12.4mm; a combined weight is given below. They are plausibly medieval in date given their thickness, although a Roman date ought not to be ruled out.

County: Hampshire

A fragmentary stud with copper-alloy globular head and beginnings of an iron shank, possibly Roman in date. The head is broadly spherical. The iron shank seems to be circular in cross-section; the exact way these two elements are joined is obscured by corrosion. From the weight the head appears solid and is 12.5mm in diameter with a flattened top. Below, the corroded remains of an iron shank, c. 2.7mm diameter, are vestigial and corroded. Similar large spherical headed studs or nails are recorded in Crummy (1983, 115; fig. 116) from Roman contexts, although those had copper alloy sh…

County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An artefact of uncertain function consisting of a lead core capped with a sheet copper-alloy dome at one end. The main leaden element is corroded and abraded, but broadly cylindrical and is able to sit on its flat, sub-circular base. The other end is shallowly domed and covered with copper-alloy sheeting, abraded at its circumference. At its summit it appears to be perforated, although this is unclear, as is its purpose. The object may have acted as a weighted terminal to something rather than a weight in its own right. The copper alloy cap has a variable mid-green colour.

A solid cast copper-alloy button with a thick tin coating, uncertain in date, either medieval or modern. It is circular in plan and domed front and back with a definite carination between the sides. There is a scar at the centre of one face, with two depressions, for a seperate narrow copper-alloy wire loop. The button is similar to an example illustrated in Egan and Prichard (1991, 274; fig 178, no.1388) which is from a context dated c. AD 1270-1350. Use of large numbers of such buttons was fashionable in the mid 14th century, however similar small buttons were also popular in the…

A corroded lead weight, or possible spindle whorl, of uncertain date. The object is roughly spherical, with flattened top and bottom and with a slight carination around the centre. It has a circular hole running through the centre. It is 21.7mm in diameter, 15.8mm tall with a hole 5.0mm in diameter at the base and slightly splaying open at the top; it weighs 27.72 grams. Plain spindle whorls and weights were cast locally in lead from the Roman period onwards and are hard to date precisely although most are late medieval/post medieval.

A complete circular cast lead object, possibly a spindle whorl or other weight. The whorl is biconvex, with one surface having received steeper bevelling than the other. The top is flattened and the base is slightly concave. It is basic and has suffered corrosion. It is seemingly undecorated. The artefact has a spindle hole with a diameter of 6.4mm. The spindle whorl is 7.9mm thick and weighs 16.01g. It has been pointed out that the weight of a spindle whorl is suggestive of the thickness of yarn produced, with lighter spindle whorls (3-5 grams) being used for spinning cotton …
