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.

Fragment of a cast lead alloy (pewter) pot leg from a vessel such as a skillet, ewer or cauldron. The lower part of the leg and a central ridge survive. Pot legs of this type were used during the medieval and post-medieval periods; however, a close parallel, albeit cast in copper alloy, is provided by pot legs recovered from early sixteenth century deposits in Norwich (Margeson 1993, 93, no.565, fig.58). Length (minimum) 33mm, width 22mm, weight 23.0 grams.

Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Gloucestershire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Medieval lead alloy personal seal matrix, probably of 14th century date. The matrix is circular and had a pierced lug on the reverse, now broken. Beneath the lug is a central raised rib, flanked by two U-shaped tendrils, forming a fleur-de-lis motif. The seal die has some damage, and much of the edge has been lost. The central device on the die depicts an eight petalled flower with rounded ends. The surrounding inscription is difficult to discern, but may read: * S’ WALT’ FIL ...PEITH (?) (Seal of Walter, son of ...peith)

Late Medieval lead alloy purse bar, c. 15th or 16th century The purse bar is complete with a length of 53.6mm and a weight of 7.1g. The terminals were pointed with a flange before a recess to secure the missing frame. The bars are of sub-rectangular section with attachment plates beneath. The bar widens (to 10.1mm) and thins (to 3.6mm) at the centre to accommodate a perforation (3.0mm diameter), through which the loop would have passed. No decoration is evident on the purse bar. The surface is poorly preserved and has a mid-grey colour.
