County: North Yorkshire

A copper alloy unidentified object. The object is sub-rectangular with rounded ends and damaged edges. It is 30.8mm long, 11.7mm wide and 5.9mm thick at the lug. The plate is 1.7mm thick. It may have originally been an elongated lozenge shape, as some of the edge at the narrower end appears to be original and tapering. The original edge is also bevelled. The plate of metal is slightly bent making the front convex. The front is covered with diagonal striations which appear to be original, though may be a side effect of the construction process. These are interrupted by the patches of co…

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead alloy object, probably a weight, of uncertain date. The object is a lop-sided cylinder which stands nicely on one end, though it was not necessarily intended to do so. There are some deep scratches on the sides and a central hole in each end. It is not certain whether the holes link up to perforate the object. It is 16.4mm long and has a diameter of 17mm. It weighs 23.1g or 0.8oz. Little is known about the function and provenance of these lead, weight-like objects. They may be connected to fishing, but there are many other possible uses.

A flat and rectangular piece of lead which may be a weight. The object is 29.1mm long, 22.3mm wide and 3.7mm thick. It has a thick white patina which is chipped at the edges and it does not seem to be decorated or marked at all. It weighs 22.6g. Lead weighs are notoriously difficult to date and are very imperfectly understood currently.

A lead alloy probable weight. The object is conical, and has a hole running vertically through the centre. There are several old dents on the side and base, and a recent scrape. Lead weights are imperfectly understood and cannot normally the attributed to a specific period. It is hoped that increased recording and further study of these objects will allow better understanding in the future. This one weighs 98.2g, which is not far off three ounces. The hole through this example casts some doubt on its function as a standing weight, yet the hole seems too narrow to allow use as a spindle…

A possible lead alloy weight of unknown date. The object is a rounded rectangular shape with a narrowed centre, making it H shaped in section. The two ends are rounded, but the central shaft has straighter edges. The function of this object is not certain. It weighs 229g which is approximately 8 ounces. It is 30.4mm in diameter and is 27.4mm thick. Lead weights are imperfectly understood and cannot normally the attributed to a specific period. It is hoped that increased recording and further study of these objects will allow better understanding in the future. No parallel for this obje…

A lead alloy spindle whorl of unknown date. The whorl is biconvex with a large central hole. The surface is very pitted and rough. It has a diameter of 24.4mm and is 13.4mm thick. Helen Geake writes: "Dating of lead whorls is difficult.

A lead alloy perforated object, a probable weight of uncertain date. The object is 69.4mm long, 27.1mm wide and 20mm thick. It weighs 120.7g which is 4.26oz. The object is a pointed oval in plan with a large round loop at one end. In section, the body of the weight is lozenge shaped; there is a ridge along the centre of each face, and round the edge with four convex panels created between the ridges. At the top, the centre ridges divide to form a ridge round the loop, which in effect is bevelled. The four panels of the body are decorated in relief. Two panels on one face are decorat…

A lead alloy spindle whorl. The whorl is discoid with bevelled edges and pentagon shaped in section. There is a large gash in one side. It has a diameter of 28.9mm and is 7.8mm thick. The whorl has a mid grey patina which is thin and appears to be more recent than many commonly seen. It is also decorated in an unusual way. The bevelled faces are decorated with close set radial lines. There is also a border of similar lines round the top face, but the centre is filled with a complex motif which is mainly obscured by the central perforation. The sides of the central perforation are strai…

A lead alloy spindle whorl. The whorl is bi-convex with a circular hole which is off centre. There are some scratches on the sides and faces. It is worn but the remains of raised decorative lines can be seen. It has a diameter of 29.8mm and is 10.5mm thick. The whorl is in good condition with a creamy yellow patina. Decorated spindle whorls are very rare finds in excavations, but are often found by metal detectorists. They are usually biconical and are decorated on both faces with raised dots and radiating or zig-zag ribs. They have been found in ploughsoil over the site of Roman buil…
