Cast lead-alloy whistle in the shape of a pipe bowl, probably late 19th century in date. The pipe bowl is similar to clay pipe examples and is decorated with moulded decoration consisting of joined semicircles and small raised knops. The base of the bowl ends in a pointed spike. Casting flashes are prominent on both sides. Iron corrosion is evident on the rim, suggesting an iron collar. The beginning of the stem is intact, and it is unclear if the stem was also made of a lead alloy, ceramic or other material. See NARC-6E7E81 for a similar example. Further information on this artefa…

Lead alloy or pewter hawking whistle of Post medieval date, possibly dating from the 18th century. The whistle is cast in the form of a dog’s head with a wide collar decorated with a ring and dot design. The dog is biting on an iron pin, which presumably would have formed a suspension ring.

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…

Lead pan weight of uncertain date The weight is complete (with a length of 18.5mm). Both faces are circular (with a diameter of 14-15mm). The sides are concave, producing a minimum diameter of 12.2mm). One of the faces has the suggestion of an incised design, possibly a star within a circular border. The weight weighs 25.0g, which is equivalent to 0.885oz. The weight is not diagnostic and is difficult to date the weight of 25.0g is broadly consistent with a 1oz weight of Medieval and post medieval systems.
