A circular cast lead alloy weight of uncertain date with a trapezoidal cross section. A 'D' is stamped on one face and there is an incised line on the other. It is 23.8mm in diametre, 6.6mm in thicknes and weighs 27.82g. 0.98 ounces. Plain weights were cast locally in lead from the Roman period onwards for a wide variety of uses and are hard to date precisely. This example is about an ounce in the avoirdupois system in use since the Medieval period suggesting a late Medieval - Post Medieval date.

Post Medieval copper alloy trade weight from a stacking set of the reign of Elizabeth I (1558-1603). The weight is circular and flat on both faces with straight sides. The top has a circular indent at the centre and is stamped with a crowned EL at 5 o'clock. It is 15.4mm in diameter and 2.0mm thick; it weighs 2.62 grams ( 0.09 oz probably originally 1/8oz). Biggs (1992:50) illustrates similar weights and states that those with this mark for Elizabeth started being issued around 1590. He suggests it is not unusual for the smallest weights, even those of London, to not show the A f…

A flat circular lead weight of uncertain date, possibly Post Medieval. There is evidence of a fold across the centre and a tear in the edge at one end of the fold. There is a small square hole through the weight, slightly off ceentre. There appears to be a scratched design on both sides of the weight but this is obscured by the large number of indents, probably from damage, on both faces. The scratched designs maybe of a square on one face and lines radiating out from the hole on the other. It is now 30.8mm by 28.3mm, 3.3mm thick and it weighs 15.80grams.

A copper-alloy late medieval or post medieval fragment of vessel repair or handle attachment. The piece is roughly rectangular in shape, though with one edge expanding in a curve, and consists of two metal sheets riveted together. Both sheets have been cut to the same shape. though one has lost about a third compared to the other. The sheets are connected by two rolled copper-alloy sheet rivets; this would have been three when the borken sheet was complete. The rivets have been pushed through from one side and is flattened and smoothed on the other, flush with the sheet. They were pro…

Body sherd from a small cup, bowl or jar with almost vertical sides. The fabric is mid orange with some fine quartz temper. The exterior is decorated with white slip interrupted by four turned parallel lines at the top and indented ovals with dignal scratches across them below. A yellow glaze over all appears brown on the inside and areas where the slip has been removed. This form of decoration is typical of South Somerset ware of the late 17th to 19th centurys altough the scratched ovals are slightly unusual.

An unidentified copper alloy object of possibly Post Medieval in date. The object is formed of a strip of copper alloy which has been bent into a C-shape. The strip has a D-shaped cross section, with the flat face being external. This terminates in a leaf-shaped (pointed oval) terminal, the internal face of which is convex with an integrally moulded shallow boss, whilst on the reverse of this is a circular recess, giving the external face a concave appearance. On the other end of the strip, just after the bend of the C, the convex edge expands to create a thickened section with a r…

A probable lead alloy fragment of a Post Medieval to Modern toy gun. The object is triangular in plan with curving sides and a flattened point. The point end is closed but the opposite end is open and was probably attached to the wooden section of the toy gun.
