Object type: COIN
Broad period: ROMAN
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy coin from the Roman period of an unknown ruler (AD43-410). The coin is in a very poor condition with very little information showing on either face due to very heavy corrosion; there is an indication of a bust on the obverse. Due to the nature of the coin, the weight and diameter, and what very little remains of the bust, it likely to be a Dupondius.

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Darlington
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete cast lead weight of the Medieval to Post Medieval period (AD1350-1800). The weight is semi-spherical, the upper rounded surface is badly pitted with some scuff marks which seem to be of a modern nature. the opposing flat surface is also pitted, though not to the same extent. The general patina on all surfaces is of a pale grey or green colouring. The artefact weighs just over two imperial pounds, probably indicating it's use as a weight. However, the form is somewhat unusual. Height: 35.02mm Width: 78.48mm Weight: 985g

A complete, cast lead alloy palm guard of the Post Medieval period, AD1600-1900. The object is roughly semi-circular in shape with one convex surface with the other being flat, with a flat edge. The upper convex surface is heavily pitted on one end, with the other end being almost smooth, possibly due to wear. The general appearance of the object suggests it may have been home cast. Palm guards, such as this object, were for use by a leather worker or sail maker to protect the palm whilst stitching.
