Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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 surviving fragment comprises of a flat disc of lead with an integral rivet projecting from the reverse. 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. The function is revealed by the imprint of a closely woven textile trapped between the parts of the cloth seal when it was attached. Suggested date: post-Medieval, 1500-1700.

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

Lead bag seal. A large cast disc with bifurcated slots in opposed edges, and with Cyrillic legends stamped on both sides; patinated. Probably a customs seal from a consignment of goods - perhaps hemp or hemp-derived - which has travelled through a north-eastern Russian port; it may include a pertinent date of issue. The legends appear as: X / HPOH[--]/2 CO[---]/[THETA]I/ 1850 and (if not inverted) T.H./NODOS/[---]O [Theta]/[---]TOA/[--]DI - this last possibly part of a circumferential legend.

An incomplete Post Medieval lead-alloy button, dating from about AD 1500-1650. The button is sub-conical and solid, with a convex front and a flat back. The front of the button has a central boss or pimple and eight radiating raised ribs within a hatched field. There is a casting seam on the back of the button and the remains of an integral attachment loop. PUBLIC-89D9BC is very similar and cites Read (2005) page 56 no. 207 which shows a similar button with a date of range of the 16th century to early 17th century. SOM-77CF09 is also simlar and cites the same book, number 211. The butt…

A lead alloy probably Post Medieval button dating from about AD 1550 - 1700. The button is a circular object made from two pieces of lead. The upper piece is a perimeter rim with an openwork design of six curved radiating arms from a central dot. Each arm is decorated with many transverse grooves. A smaller circular back piece fits inside the rim. There is a faint casting seam across the reverse and there was probably once a loop projecting from this rib. The button has a dark grey patina. It is 24.7mm diameter, 6.6mm thick and 10.3g. Compare DENO-A4493F which cites Read, B. (2005) Met…

Lead possible weight. Cast plano-convex weight with a central moulded aperture of diameter 4.7mm. Shrinkage on the flat surface may suggest this was cast in an open mould. Patinated. The hole might have been intended for stringing as a line weight, though there is no marking to suggest this - the finder kindly notes this was found near other net sinkers close to the old course of the River Don. For a game piece, a class of early medieval object also of this form, it might accommodate a wooden peg for use with a holed game board such as Hnafetafl. The mass might suggest this to represe…

Lead net sinker. A weight made by rolling a rectangular billet of cast lead sheet of thickness 1.4mm, which would be wrapped around the selvedge of a net, in this case with an overlapping seam; patinated, and lightly squashed. The weight may in this case have been deposited or lost while attached to the net, which might be used for fishing or wildfowling. Examples from the riverside settlement at Flixborough suggest a local Middle Saxon use for weights of this form on the River Trent, though in London similar weights came from a late medieval boat in the Thames at Blackfriars bridge. …

Lead net sinker. A weight made by the rolling of a rectangular billet of cast lead sheet of thickness 2mm, which would be wrapped around the selvedge of a net; patinated, pierced and lightly squashed. In this case, the weight appears to have been unclenched for its removal from the net. A pierced hole might suggest light gnawing by a dog, so an eager interpreter might posit a fisherman - or perhaps a wildfowler - accompanied by his hound. Examples from the riverside settlement at Flixborough suggest a local Middle Saxon use for weights of this form on the River Trent, though in London …

Lead weight. Cast trapezoid weight with a large oval sunken panel on one side; patinated. The mass may suggest this to have represented one [underweight] averdepois ounce. It was possibly formerly equipped with an insert supplying the deficit, though the form of this object is distinct from that of those early medieval weights with inserted objects, which are typically discoid. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1700. Length: 27mm, Width: 27mm, Thickness: 4.9mm, Weight: 25.17gms
