Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
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

Lead Medieval personal seal matrix, probably dating to the first half of 14th century. The matrix is of pointed oval shape. The rear of the matrix has a perforated lug at the apex (now bent against the back), and a raised rib running along the length of the matrix.

There is the suggestion of letters probably beginning: S ’ Thomas … Seal of Thomas The surface of the die is cracked and suggests the matrix may have been burnt.
