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…

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.

A lead standing weight of uncertain date, Early Medieval to Post Medieval, about AD 850 - 1700. The weight is roughly conical, but the base is pentagonal and the five sides taper as they extend upwards. The upper end of the weight is curved to the side and is damaged, making it unclear what shape it was originally. It is 35.1mm tall, 19.4mm wide and 18.3mm thick. 50.3g. This mass is only a little short of two ounces. Compare CORN-6BC1A8 and GLO-F61AB4.

A conical lead alloy standing weight of probable Medieval to Post-Medieval date,about AD 1300 - 1700. The weight is conical in form. The sides of the weight flare to the flat sub-circular base.The top is rounded and there is no evidence of an attachment loop. The weight is undecorated. It has a well-developed cream coloured patina across all surfaces. Weights can be hard to date due to being a functional item that has not altered significantly over time. Biggs and Withers (2000) note that standing weights made of lead were still used in comparatively recent times. It is 34.7mm tall…

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. Many examples on the PAS database are …

A cast lead alloy probable trade weight probably dating from the Medieval period, about AD 1300 - 1500. It is sub-triangular with rounded corners, but is probably intended to be shield shaped (flat top with curved sides meeting at a point at the base). The central area is much thicker than the edge. The centre of the top face may once have been decorated but the design is no longer legible. There is a 3.6mm diameter circular perforation in the centre of the shield. The weight has a well developed white patina. It is 33.1mm long, 25.4mm wide and 6.2mm thick. 26.1g. It was probably inte…

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 perforated conical lead weight of uncertain date, from the Roman to post-medieval period, AD 43 - 1900. The weight is sub-conical in shape with a circular base, tapering sides and a tilted domed top. There is a sub0-circular perforation from the apex, slightly curved to the centre of the base. The base of the weight has a ring shaped concavity probably the result of the cooling lead shrinking. The surface of the weight is uneven and it has a well developed white patina. The weight measures 20mm tall, 17.4mm diameter and 75.9g. This mass does not appears to correspond with any known s…

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…

A lead weight, or plumb bob, of unknown date, AD 43 - 1800. The object is ovoid (egg-shaped) and is perforated with a very small hole running from end to end. The hole is 0.6mm diameter, and could only accomodate thin thread or wire. The weight has a smooth, well developed patina with some post-depositional scratches. It is 24.4mm long, 18.6mm diameter and 43.6g. The mass does not appear to correspond closely with any regular system of weighing, perhaps suggesting that the object is a plumb bob or net weight. It does not stand without support.

A perforated lead weight of unknown date. It is cylindrical and stands upright, though slightly angled. There is a small circular hole running longitudinally but off-centre through the weight, with a diameter of 2.4mm. The weight is slightly wider at one end than the other. It has rounded corners and a hollow in the base cuased by the lead shrinking as it cooled. It is 18.1mm tall, 15.4mm diameter and 23.87g. The simple nature of the weight and the narrow, off-centred hole suggests that it is probably a line weight, perhaps used for fishing or weighing down nets or snares, probably in…
