A lead possible weight of unknown date, Roman to Post Medieval, AD 43 - 1800. It is a cuboid of solid lead. One end is concave, and the edges project slightly. The sides are all flat and smooth. The other end is rough and is probably a break, now patinated. The object has a regular grey patina. There is no visible decoration, though natural imperfections in the metal have left slight marks on the surface. It is 16mm long, 12mm wide and 11mm thick. 21g. This object could have been used as a weight, but it appears to be incomplete. It could also be the casting well and runner from metal…

Object type: STEELYARD WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Rotherham
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A lead and iron probable steelyard weight of probable Roman date, AD 43 - 410. It is a narrow cone of lead, truncated at the top with a flat end from which the stud of an iron attachment loop projects. The other end is rounded, with a central conical depression. The sides are slightly faceted, and there is a deep gouge, probably post depositional damage, but still patinated, on one face. The weight has a light grey patina. It is 39mm long, 23mm in diameter and is 110g. This mass is roughly equal to one third of a Roman pound (libra), though the missing iron loop would also add mass.

A crude lead weight of Medieval to Post Medieval date, about AD 1250 - 1800. It is a solid sub-cuboid but irregular piece of lead. It is trapezoid in cross-section, taller at one side than the other. One long face is marked with two oblique deep grooves probably indicating the mass of two ounces. The other long face and the short ends appear to be cut on a slight angle. The lead is patinated to white. The weight is 27mm long, 23mm wide and 14mm thick. 56g.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead possible apothecary weight of probable Post Medieval date, about AD 1500 - 1800. It is a circular disc with one flat face and one rounded face. There are no visible markings. It has a well developed cream patina. It is 11mm diameter, 4mm thick and 3g. The mass suggests it could be a one drachm weight which has lost a little mass, perhaps an apothecary's weight. It is also possible that it is the remains of an impacted lead shot or pellet or Modern date.

County: Wakefield
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probable lead musket ball, of Post-Medieval date, about AD 1750 - 1900. A casting seam is not visible, suggesting it dates from later than the English Civil Wars, and the weight is consistent with pistol shot used by British Forces from the late 18th century onwards. The ball has impacted against something convex and smooth, leaving the ball as a sub-hemispherical shape, with a concave face and irregular convex surface. The shot is 18.5mm in diameter and weighs 12.7g, suggesting that it was intended for use in a pistol (Harding D F, 2012, Lead Shot of the English Civil War). It has a…

A lead possible domino of probable Post Medieval date, about AD 1700 - 1900. It is a plain flat rectangle of lead, which is the right proportions for a domino, but it has no dots marking value. It could be the double blank tile, though often dominos have a dividing line bteween the two ends of the tile, which this example does not have either. It is totally blank. It may be another object such as a weight. It is 34.4mm long, 18.4mm wide and 4.6mm thick. 23g. The earliest domino sets are thought to date from the 13th century and originate in China. The game reached Europe by the 18th c…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A piece of Late Medieval to early modern lead casting waste, which is 51.6mm long, 11.7mm wide and 5mm thick. 10.8g. The object is a strip of flat lead, rectangular with rounded ends. There is a casting seam along the centre of the reverse, and the stubs of three jets or runners, with a fouth one trimmed off. At some point, the object was bent and straightened in the middle, damaging the patina. The object would have been produced from the late medieval period to the early modern era, about AD 1400-1850. Compare LEIC-BAD4C1.

A rolled strip of lead of unknown date, 200 BC - AD 1900. It is a tightly rolled strip of sheet lead which is about 1.3mm thick and 11.9mm wide, now forming an approximate cylinder of 9.8mm wide and 7.9mm thick. 6.6g. It was initially thought to be a possible Roman 'curse tablet'. However, similar objects such as DENO-21D323 have been compared to examples of verified curse tablets / rolls (http://curses.csad.ox.ac.uk), and are now thought to be of more modern date, and to have functioined as a weight, or simply a convienient lead ingot or offcut.

A lead spindle whorl of Early Medieval to post-Medieval date. It appears to be Walton Rogers Form A1, suggesting a date of about AD 500 - 850 (owing to the fairly small central aperture). However, traces of cast decoration on the curved face may suggest a later date, up to AD 1600. One face is flat and one is convex. There is a central perforation which has a maximum diameter of 8mm. Traces of a design in relief are visible on the convex face. The artefact has a light cream patina. It is 26.1mm diameter, 10.3mm thick and 28.4g.

A lead alloy weight of Medieval or Post Medieval date, about AD 1200 - 1800. The weight is a flat disc of lead with an incuse design in the upper face. This takes the form of a a deep central circle surrounded by six pointed petels forming a rose or flower design. This motif is enclosed within a recessed circle of small inward pointing triangles forming a border. The sides of the disc are slightly rounded and the reverse is plain. It is 66.9mm diameter, 12.8mm thick and 443g. This is a little less than the mass of a 1 pound weight, which is probably what was intended. Compare WILT-56A4…

A lead ingot of uncertain date, probably Post Medieval to Modern, AD 1700 - 1950. It is a flat rectangular ingot with anged sides making it a trapezoidal prism. The corners are slightly rounded and ther are several circular concave marks on the top face, several overlapping. The metal is slate grey in colour, with little to no evidence of patination. The ingot is 76.2mm long, 46.1mm wide and 14.4mm thick. It is a 461g. This just over a Modern pound, and it was probably intended to be a pound of lead. This suggests a Medieval date or later, and the condition of the metal suggests a Post…

A steelyard weight of possible Roman date, about AD 43 - 410. It is a globular piece of lead with iron projecting at one end. The iron forms a broken suspension loop. Roman steelyard weights are usually biconical, but weights of other shapes may also be Roman, though the steelyard was also used in the Medieval and Post Medieval periods. The lead has a white patina and is pitted. It is 47.9mm diameter, 44.3mm tall and 463g. Allowing for corrosion having caused some loss of mass, and the incomplete suspension loop, this could be intended to be 1 and a half Roman libra (c.492g). However, …
