Record ID: WILT-1E72AF
Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Medieval lead circular uniface token of Powell type 3, probably dating to c. AD 1200-1850. Raised lines divide the decorated face into 8 equally sized segments. Dimensions: diameter: 17.2mm; weight 2.80g. Lead tokens had a wide variety of uses and were made locally; they are therefore hard to date precisely and could be Medieval or Post Medieval in date.

Record ID: PUBLIC-F3EA85
Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast solid circular lead weight with sloping sides and flat upper and lower surfaces, white patinated overall. It is 26.0 mm in diameter at the top, and 29.1mm at the base, and is 10.1mm thick, and weighs 55.4gms. The mass suggests that this may represent two ounces in either the averdepois or mercantile systems of measurement, and round weights of this approximate value appear amongst finds from the London waterfront (Egan 1998, tables 14 and 15). Suggested date for this object would be medieval to post-medieval, c.1300-1600.

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead possible spindle whorl. Cast whorl of plano-convex section with an off-centre moulded aperture of diameter 6.8mm. Shrinkage lines around the hole suggest the object was cast in an open mould or, given the slightly rough feel of the curved surface, perhaps a hollow in the sand of a casting bed. Patinated. The hole is partly burred over on the convex side. The mass suggests this performed a function distinct from that of most spindle whorls, perhaps as a flywheel, or for the plying of thicker cord. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Post-Medieval, 43-1800 Diameter: 36.3mm, Thickness…

Lead possible weight. Cast plano-convex object with a small dimple on its convex side. Patinated. The mass may suggest this to have represented one half of an ore/ora or three Viking Age units of 4.07gms. A conical ribbed playing piece or weight of similar mass (NLM-C98990) was reported as from the same general location, and indeed this object might qualify as one of the plainer pieces used in the game of Hnafetafl. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-950 Diameter: 16.5mm, Thickness: 8.3mm, Weight: 12.62gms

A cast post-medieval lead-alloy circular biface token (c. 1500-1850). Description: The token is circular, both sides of which have an incised uneven cross quadrant design (Powell type 12).

Post medieval lead cloth seal of continental issuer, possible Hanseatic. Discoidal with a broken D-shaped loop projecting from one edge, now folded over.

Lead possible playing piece. Cast conical to pentagonal-section flat-based object with five moulded ribs converging at its apex. The ribs may have distinguished this from plainer pieces used in the board game Hnafetafl, perhaps as a 'king'. Its mass also equates to one half ore/ora, or three Viking -Age units as used for transactions in silver bullion, most closely matching that system employed in Scandinavia based on a module of 4.07gms. The object could have served as both weight and game piece, especially if such games were to be played for silver stakes. A slightly heavier version …
