Record ID: NMGW-0EE2F4
Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Perforated whetstone of rectangular cross-section, made of a fine-grained siltstone. The stone tapers gently to the flat end. The top of the whetstone has been damaged and is irregular. The perforation is regular and has been drilled; it has been positioned slightly off-centre on one face. All four faces illustrate evidence of whetting, but show no obvious sign of being dished through prolonged use.

Freestanding, discoidal lead alloy weight. One side is decorated with a set of linear cast motifs incorporating a central cross and radiating lines in each quarter. The other side is plain. The edge of the casting is irregularly crimped. The casting is perforated, at a slight angle, from the plain side through the centre of the cross motif on the decorated side. The perforation is less than 1mm in diameter and of unknown purpose (it may be a casting feature to align a two-part mould). Diameter 28-30mm; thickness 10mm.

Freestanding discoidal crudely cast lead, or lead alloy weight decorated with a cross motif. Diameter 23-25mm, thickness 6.5mm, weight 23 grams. Lead weights such as these could have performed a variety of functions such as unofficial weights and measures used by traders and merchants. Dating them is difficult, excavated examples range in date from the medieval period to the nineteenth century.

Perforated lead, or lead alloy, discoidal weight.. One side of the weight is decorated with a concentric circle and a series of radiating lines; the other side has been damaged, probably in antiquity, by two linear incisions. Diameter 33mm, maximum thickness 6mm, diameter of perforation 7mm, weight 43.0grams. Again, lead weights such as these are difficult to date and assign a specific function to. Excavated weights similar to this example date from the medieval period until the nineteenth century and a date at some point in this long range for this example is likely. Conventionally, p…

Octagonal-sectioned tapering lead, or lead-alloy, weight. The weight is pinched and perforated at its narrowest end for suspension. Possibly for use with a steelyard. The close dating of lead weights is difficult; excavated examples range in date from the Roman period until the nineteenth century. Brian Read has published a similar example which he dates to the 12th to 13th century (Read 1995, 99, no.609). Height 20mm, maximum width 15mm

Decorated lead pan weight of uncertain date, probably later Medieval or early Post medieval. The weight is an irregular circular with a raised border. The face is decorated with cast pellets between radiating lines from a central pellet. The weight (abraded around the edges) now weighs 45.7g or 1.61oz. (706 grains). While this weight does not correspond very closely to standardised weights, the decoration has some similarities with a larger lead weight found in London (Egan, 1998, No. 1008, pp314, fig. 235) in a late 14th century context.

Cast lead weight possibly a line fishing weight similar to those used in Viking Dublin (Wallace 1999). The weight resembles a Dublin type 1 or 2 (ibid.), the piece does not have perforations at either end, as would be required for a hand fishing line, although there are suggestions of marks at these points. The weight may be a counter weight from a tool such as a woodworking plane, possibly of 19th century date. The weight has a flat base with domed top at the centre and flat ends.

Copper alloy zoomorphic figurine, probably a weight in the form of a horse, now damaged and incomplete, represented by the front of the animal (with a surviving length of 32.5mm, a maximum surviving height of 22.1mm and a weight of 20.4g). The legs of the horse survive as short stubs and are projecting forward, suggesting the horse may have been depicted running. The figurine has a maximum width across the shoulders of 10.0mm. The mane is evident along the neck of the horse and the recessed eyes are discernible but all other surface detail has been lost. The find can be closely para…
