An incomplete cast lead powder flask cap, of Post Medieval dating (17th Century AD). Approximately 75% of the cap is present, with part of one side missing. It has been mishaped, probably due to movement in the ploughsoil. It is sub circular in plan, and sub rectangular in cross section. Originally it would have been circular or oval in plan (as viewed from above). The comparatively thin sides (or walls) would have flared outwards towards the oval or circular mouth. The closed end or 'base' is circular in plan. Remnants of a D shaped loop on the edge of the base are present. No cas…

A complete cast lead or lead alloy weight, of probable Medieval dating (1300 to 1550 AD). The weight is an irregular cylinder in plan, and sub rectangular in profile / cross section. The base exhibits a minor concavity, with a ridge present running around the edge. A length of thick iron wire has been inserted into the weight, probably as a method of suspension. Iron corrosion products present have obscured the original shape of the probable suspension loop. No decoration is present on the weight. It is a light to mid grey colour, with an even surface patina. It measures 17.85mm…

A complete cast lead or lead alloy weight, of probable Late Medieval to Post Medieval dating (1300 to 1800 AD). The weight is sub oval in plan, and sub rectangular in profile / cross section. A hole has been created at the top of the weight, probably for suspension purposes. It is a light to mid grey colour, with an even surface patina. Abrasion, probably caused by movement in the plough soil, has resulted in the loss of a significant proportion of the original surface. It measures 26.98mm tall, is 12.87mm wide and 7.16mm thick. It weighs 13.0 grams (0.46 oz). The shape and s…
