Post Medieval cast lead bifacial token of Powell Type 2, probably dating to c. AD 1500-1850. The token is sub-circular in plan and flat in cross section.

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead metalworking debris. A fragment of lead melt which has congealed in a shallow hollow, with a further deposit of lead poured over it, now with a lightly gouged surface. The lower layer is patinated but the upper is not, which may suggest a relatively recent date for the activity it represents. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1900. Length: 40.3mm, Width: 40.3mm, Thickness: 9mm, Weight: 44.13gms

Lead and iron probable weight. Cast sub-discoid weight with a pair of iron inserts, and with a small moulded ring on the surface adjacent to these on one side; the edge is slightly bevelled . The other side bears several deep gouges. This would have weighted a watertight oiled leather seal. Manually operated pumps were important in the drainage of land in Northern Lincolnshire from the 17th century onwards. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1800-1900.

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead musket ball. Cast ball with a flattened patch of diameter 9mm, either from a ramrod or from its inclusion in a multiple load, with the flat area where this was next to another ball in the gun barrel. Patinated, and with numerous tiny crescentic nicks, the latter possibly from light gnawing by vermin. The mass, at well over an ounce, would suggest this was used with a smoothbore muzzle loading firearm of military specification. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1800. Diameter: 18.3mm, Weight: 34.74gms

Lead metalworking debris. A fragment of cast lead which has run into and solidified within the apertures around the edge of a curved object; the appearance is of the edge of a shoe heel with empty nail holes filled by the fluid metal. A thin scrap of lead sheet adheres to this, on what would correspond to the underside of the lead after it had cooled, and this bears impressions from a coarsely woven textile, perhaps sacking or rough overalls. Patinated. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1900. Length: 36.6mm, Width: 37.2mm, Thickness (overall): 8.4mm, Weight: 42.36gms

Lead figurine. A crudely hollow cast fragment from a three-dimensionally modelled figurine, probably made at a scale of c. 1:15. The torso and one elongated arm with an empty hand palm upwards remain, with scars to show the loss of the second arm. An internal collar and external neck socket suggest the head [also lost] had been separately modelled. A queue of hair or the tail of a periwig or crest appears between the upper shoulders, and there is a suspicion of a skirted or turned back coat to one side and at the back. The body is so plain as to hint at the rendition of a plate metal c…

Lead weight. Cast discoid weight with a rounded rim visible on either side. Some indistinct surface relief might suggest this to have been cast in a mould made using a coin as the master. Chipped on one side, with the loss of perhaps one sixth of the object. The lack of surface patina may hint at a relatively recent date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1700-1800.

Lead possible token. A small cast discoid token with a strongly moulded and possibly cabled border confining a design incorporating a central pellet and six or more smaller pellets around it. This resembles an early post-medieval button front, but there is no trace of a loop, though a thickened part projecting from the plain back might represent an attachment for a small badge. The object is deeply nicked at one point. Suggested date: Late Medieval, 1350-1500. Diameter: 15.8mm, Thickness: 1.8mm, Weight: 2.94gms

Lead bag seal. A pair of linked cast oval discs clamped together, with a bifurcated slot at one edge and a single slot in the opposite edge, to function as a drawstring bag closure. One side bears the notation: R & A / 28 within a pelleted border in modern capital letters. The other side bears an armorial shield charged with a lion rampant left below a Crown Imperial; there are three grooves below this, though not part of the design, and rust streaks might suggest a steel wire tie had been used. The lion may allude to Brabant: i.e. the Belgian Low Countries, where a monarchy was in…

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead pilgrim ampulla or holy water flask with the neck folded over to close the vessel. The ampulla is bag shaped with no evidence for loops at the side of the neck, used to suspend the flask from a cord around the pilgrim's neck. The ampulla is decorated on the front with raised radiating lines that form a scallop shell pattern, typical of ampullae. The scallop shell was originally the emblem of the apostle St. James the Greater, of Compostela, but soon became a generic symbol of pilgrim saints and pilgrims. The back of the ampulla is more corroded but the edge appears to have al…
