Lead possible weight. Cast discoid flat-sided weight with a tiny [diameter c.1.3mm] pierced hole off-centre; patinated. One of two similar objects reported together from the same general location. The hole would admit a fine cord, perhaps of horsehair, and may suggest a use as a fishing line weight, though a flat discoid form is unusual, and perhaps indicates the personal preference of an individual. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1500. Diameter: 20.6mm, Thickness: 2.8mm, Weight: 7.71gms

Lead spindle whorl. Cast sub-cylindrical whorl with a moulded tapered aperture of diameter 8.5-11.5mm, Walton Rogers form B; patinated. Shrinkage around the hole may suggest this was cast in an open mould. The size of the spindle hole may suggest an Anglo-Scandinavian date, with which the form is compatible. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 1000-1100. Diameter: 28.2mm, Thickness: 10.5mm, Weight: 45.57gms

A heavily worn, abraded and cancelled flat lead non-heraldic personal seal matrix of Medieval date c.AD 1200-1350. Description: The matrix would have been a flat and circular in plan before it had been cancelled and folded over itself. There would likely have been a suspension loop at some point on the rear, but it is not visible due to the folding. On the front is an engraved central design of an eight-pointed star with the arms alternating long and short arms. This is surrounded by a legend which is heavily worn and runs retrograde (anti-clockwise) around the matrix so it would appe…

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead unidentified object fragment. One end of a cast rectangular box with a hole of diameter 4.3mm drilled through its base; it appears that a diminutive gutter runs towards this hole, so its provision may have been an original feature of the object. Fine casually executed cuts appear across the upstanding edges of the box, and there is a small dimple in its upper surface at its surviving end. The object is distorted towards the cut or broken end, probably by the episode which truncated it. Patinated. The casual finishing might suggest this to be a toy or miniature object, though if a…

A Post-medieval to Modern lead object of indeterminate function, probably post-dating AD 1632. The object consists of a rectangular tablet of lead, plain on the reverse but with an impression from a round coin weight on the obverse. The coin weight featured a crowned XX surmounting an s (in retrograde on the impression), within a beaded border. Length 19.4mm; width 22.6mm; thickness 2.2mm; weight 5.74g. Similar designs feature on a range of British coin weights, Withers & Withers (2011: 16), however, suggest that round weights with the design post-date 1632. The lead object is fa…

An incomplete Medieval or Post Medieval lead cloth seal, probably dating to c. AD 1400-1714. Disc 1 of a 2- or 4-part seal.

The front of the disc is stamped with a crowned F flanked by fleur-de-lis, all in low relief. Dimensions: diameter 17.3mm; thickness 7.2mm; weight 2.48g. With so little of the design surviving any specific identification must be slightly tentative, however very similar seals for faulty cloths are published by Egan (1987: nos. 110-111), suggested to date to…

~~An incomplete post-medieval lead-alloy button that is missing its integral shank on the reverse. On the face of the button are five oval flower petals, with a pellet in between, all arranged around a central domed boss. The button shares similarities with those in Read (2005) pp.75-6 and 84-6, for which he suggests a late 16th century - 18th century date.

Lead cloth seal fragment. A thin wide cast ring, with the stub of a lug formerly connecting this to a counterpart with a male member which would pass through the central hole; patinated.

Lead palm guard or 'sailmaker's glove'. A small thick [4mm] oval fragment of cast lead sheet of structural gauge, with deep straight but very short cuts on either side. Patinated. This is an extremely small example of a craftsman's palm guard, which enables fine work with a bladed instrument on an object held in the hand. The mass might point to reuse of an old quarter ounce weight. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1800. Length: 18.7mm, Width: 15mm, Thickness: 4mm, Weight: 6.93gms
