A Post-Medieval lead container, probably an inkwell or candlestick holder, probably dating to c. AD 1600-1800. The object is circular in plan, with slightly sloping sides and a central depression, U-shaped in cross section, at the apex. The walls of the container are decorated by a triple-stranded, circumferencial band, in low relief, with the central line being wider and more pronounced. The base, walls and central depression appear to be made of separate pieces of lead. Dimensions: length 75.4mm; width 72.4mm; thickness 39.7mm; weight 286g. A number of lead containers identified a…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead probable spindle whorl. Cast whorl of plano-convex profile with an off-centre moulded aperture of diameter 13.3mm. A rim around the hole is defined on both sides. The convex side bears surface irregularities which might suggest this to have been cast using one side of a biconical decorated whorl to form the mould in which this was made. The mass suggests a primary function plying cord. Another example of a copied whorl was reported along with this one from the same general location. Patinated. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1600. Diameter: 40.6mm, Thickness: 8.7mm, Weight: 70.81gms

Lead spindle whorl. Cast cylindrical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 9.3mm, Walton Rogers form B. Patinated. A deep nick or manufacturing flaw appears across one side of the whorl.

Lead probable spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a moulded central aperture of diameter 11.9mm. The convex face bears blurred relief decoration incorporating lines and pellets, and indicates that this object has been cast in a mould made by impressing one half of a biconical whorl into a medium such as clay. Another similarly crude copy of a biconvex whorl was reported along with this example. The mass tends to point to a primary function plying cord. The metal retains a grey tint, confirming a relatively recent date for this object. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1600. …

Lead spindle whorl. Cast whorl of plano-convex profile with a central moulded aperture of diameter 8mm, Walton Rogers form A1. Patinated.

A fragment of a probably Post Medieval lead cloth seal. The object consists of a fragment (maybe only 20-30 per cent) of disc 1 of a two- or four-disc seal, with an integral rivet projecting from the reverse.

An incomplete Post-Medieval lead alnage cloth seal. The object is a single incomplete disc of an originally two or four-disc seal. It is stamped with a design representing a thistle, composed of raised pellets and surmounted by a crown. The disc is sub-circular in shape retaining much of it's original edge to the left of the design. To the right however, the edge of the disc is missing (about 10-15%) and the breaks are worn and irregular. Above the design is possibly the remnant of a broken connecting strip, by which it was joined to another disc. Alternatively this could be part of th…

The base of the weight is marked by parallel lines suggesting that it has been filed flat in order that it might stand. Other…

A Medieval or Post-Medieval two- or four-disc lead cloth seal with a privy or merchants mark. The object consists of two disc fragments joined back to back.

Lead net-sinker. A tubular weight made by the rolling of a rectangle of cast lead sheet of thickness 1.5mm, either around a former or around the selvedge of a net, secured by a butted join of its edges. The aperture has a diameter of 5mm. Patinated. Weights of this form have long been used to weight fishing tackle. A large collection was discovered in a late medieval boat near Blackfriars Bridge. London. However, the only stratified parallels from North Lincolnshire are earlier, coming from Middle Saxon contexts at Flixborough. These were equipped with either overlapping or butted seam…

An incomplete Post Medieval lead alnage cloth seal. Originally forming part of a four-lobed seal, the surviving fragment consists of just two discs joined together: approximately 70 per cent of disc 3 and 90 per cent of disc 4. The breaks are old and probably caused by the plough. Disc 4 appears to have a tab extending a few millimetres from the edge opposite disc 3. At the other extremity, on disc 3, a remnant of the connecting strip that joined it to disc 2 survives and is slightly crumpled. Disc 3 is stamped with a design which, by comparison with similar seals, might be a thistle …
