Lead weight. Cast discoid weight with rounded edges which may suggest the flattening by hammering of a small lump of lead; patinated and lightly abraded. The mass does not now point to correspondence with any particular scheme of measurement, though round weights of a slightly greater mass come from later medieval contexts in London. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Post-Medieval, 43-1700. Diameter: 22.3mm, Thickness: 4.5mm, Weight: 19.71gms

A complete Medieval to post-Medieval lead alloy standing weight (c. 1200-c. 1600). This weight is sub-square in cross-section and tapers from the base towards the suspension loop at the top. The base is rounded and the top is narrowed and pierced with a circular hole, 3.0mm in diameter. The two faces on the same plane as the hole have indentations. The weight is greyish buff. Height: 37.0mm; width: 15.4mm; thickness: 13.6mm. Weight: 39.28g. Biggs and Withers (2000) suggest that this type of weight first appeared around c. 1200. However, the ease with which lead can be cast and thei…

A modern copper-alloy trade weight dating c.1825 - 1835. The weight is circular with a raised rim on the top. The bottom surface is flat. The top surface of the weight has been stamped with two concentric circles, the words 'IMPERIAL' (at 12 o'clock) and 'STANDARD' (at 6 o'clock), a crowned WR positioned centrally and a stamp attributing to Somerset districts (at 8 o'clock). Biggs (1992:54-56) suggests that the 'WR crowned' stamp continues from the use of the 'crowned GR' stamp, which was used widely on weights that were made outside major centres in the late eighteenth and early nin…

A complete lead-alloy weight of uncertain date. The weight is square in plan and profile, forming a cube, with a central perforation running through it. All surfaces display damage in the form of dents and scratches. The metal has a creamy white patina and is worn. The weight is 23.7mm long, 25.2mm wide, 22.7mm thick and weighs 94g. The dating of lead objects of this general type is problematic, and their use is invariably uncertain. The term 'weight' is used here in its broadest sense to include uses that do not involve weighing (e.g. holding-down, tensioning, etc.). Lead weights we…
