Lead vessel repair or pot mend. Cast plug to mend a hole in a vessel wall of thickness; 3.5mm; crumbs of oxidised fabric remain trapped in the mend. Patinated. A neat external finish may hint at a Roman date. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410. Diameter: 29.9mm, Thickness: 18.1mm, Weight: 63.48gms

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead spindle whorl. Cast whorl of conical form with one flat face larger than the other, and with a central moulded aperture of diameter 7.5mm, Walton Rogers form A2. Patinated. A nick which might otherwise be taken to signal the conversion of whorl to line weight is the result of adventitious damage which has removed patina, probably at the time of discovery. The small spindle size would admit an Anglo-Saxon date while the mass might suggest this was intended to spin a fine yarn. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 750-850. Diameter: 17.0mm, Height: 10.2mm, Weight: 15.97gms

County: Lincolnshire

Lead shot. Cast ball with a bright grey metal surface. The good condition may argue a relatively recent date, unless cleaned to this state by the finder; this object was possibly finished in an abrasive drum. The mass may suggest this was for use with a smoothbore muzzle loading pistol or carbine, possibly of military specification. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1700-1850. Diameter: 14.7mm, Weight: 19.62gms

Lead vessel repair or pot mend. Cast plug to mend a hole in a vessel wall of thickness 2.8mm; a crumb of oxidised red fabric is trapped in the mend. Patinated. The small size may suggest a Roman date: the finish is neat on the outer side of the vessel, less so within. Suggested date: Roman, 43-410. Width: 23.5mm, Thickness: 12.1mm, Weight: 17.09gms

Lead possible weight. A small possibly discoid object with a centrally drilled pit of diameter c.4mm, partly melted in the basal angle of a flat-based vessel with a vertical side. Lightly patinated, with a smoother surface where melted. The mass might suggest this to have been a discoid weight representing four units of one of the contemporary Viking-Age systems for the measurement of silver bullion - based on modules of 4.07gms and 4.43gms. The correspondence with both systems is, however, inexact, and the weight had perhaps been tampered with - by drilling - before what appears as it…

Lead ingot. A small sub-ovoid fragment of lead which has congealed in a shallow scrape. The localised off-white surface deposit allied to scant patination may suggest a relatively recent date, a feature shared by another cast lead object found at the same reported location and related by its form to lead working. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1800-1900. Length: 90.9mm, Width: 62.1mm, Thickness: 11mm, Weight: c.225gms

Lead metalworking debris. A fragment of lead which has solidified in the base of a flat or lightly convex-bottomed vessel with internally fluted sides, of estimated basal diameter c.100mm. The vessel was at a slight angle when the lead congealed. There is some localised off-white surface deposit but scant patination which points to a relatively recent date. A small ingot was found together with this object. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1800-1900. Thickness: 12.1mm, Weight: 99.28gms

Lead stylus fragment. Cast rod of round section but with a longitudinal mould line or rib, and with a probably moulded conical point at one end.

Lead and steel bag seal fragment. Cast disc, probably one half of a small bag seal, with a looped steel tie, lightly corroded, embedded with one end protruding. The seal bears a mould line in what would have been a concealed location when in use. The outer side of the seal bears the legend: L.P. & CO. Patinated. The lettering style suggests a recent date. Suggested date: Modern, 1920-1960. Diameter: 14.1mm, Thickness (clear of steel); 1.7mm, Weight: 3.47gms

Object type: CROSS
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Worcestershire

Medieval to Post Medieval (13th to 17th centuries): The cross is incomplete; the vertical bar is incomplete with both terminals being broken and one stem has convex sides. The horizontal bar is formed by two sub-ovals therefore the terminals are rounded and the edges convex. Both faces are undecorated and a mottled with a light-grey to dark grey surface. The cross measures 41.36mm long, 28.55mm wide, 2.1mm thick and weighs 9.29g. There are similar cross in the collections of the Science Museum (A629447) and the British Museum (1906,0514.3).

Object type: CLOTH SEAL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Post Medieval lead alloy cloth seal, probably dating to c. AD 1600-1800. Two lead alloy discs pressed together with one connecting strip surviving, the vestigial remains of a second set of connecting strips as well as the lack of a rivet on either disc suggesting that it was originally a 4-disc seal. One face is stamped in low relief with a depiction of an eagle or other bird of prey standing left with wings outstretched, stood on a trasverse line of pellets. This is within a low largely illegible inscription: [...(IN?)...]WA[...]ON (pellet). On the reverse, again in low relief is th…

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete lead weight dated to the Early Medeival period (c. AD 865-1000). The weight is rectangular in shape with four bevelled edges. It is patinated overall. According to Foreman (2016), who has recorded a number of these weights on the PAS databse (see records NLM-BB567B; NLM-F23368 and NLM-941282), the mass may suggest this to represent 20 Viking Dublin units of 4.43gms for the weighing of bullion. The overall dimensions are as follows: 29.3mm in length, 41.18mm in width, 9.02mm in thickness and 89.49g in weight. References: Foreman, M (2016) NLM-BB567B: A EARLY MEDIEVAL WEIG…

Lead metalworking debris. Cast plano-convex object of oval form, with flat upper and lower sides. There is a small [diameter 6mm] depression in the centre of the larger flat face. Patinated and encrusted, probably with sand. The latter feature may associate this with a formal episode of lead working, as a sand bed was the standard facility for casting lead for a significant project. Suggested date: Unknown, 43-1800. Length: 24.4mm, Width: 20.8mm, Thickness: 10.9mm, Weight: 25.80gms

Object type: TOY
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead possible toy. A spinner cut to circular form from cast lead sheet of structural gauge with a pair of holes of diameter 6.8mm drilled close to its centre. A cord would pass through these holes, leaving a groove it has cut in the side of one of them. The cord would be twisted and, when pulled smartly from either end, would cause the disc to rotate rapidly and hum. The effect would be much improved by a serrated edge, whose lack sets this apart from better erxamples. An analogous use has been suggested for medieval 'toggles' made from pig metapodial bones which are now thought to hav…
