Undated lead alloy, probable weight, 28mm in diameter, 9mm thick with a weight of 52.57grams. The object is circular in form and rectangular in cross section. It has rounded edges and a slight raised lip on both sides. On one side it has also a distinct sub rectangular depression with two linear parallel depressions running along its central area. This may suggest that it had something inlaid into it? or perhaps it is later damage.

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 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

Lead weight. Cast plano-convex weight, with a central dimple on its flat side suggesting shrinkage after casting in an open mould. Patinated, abraded and probably chipped. The mass does not immediately suggest correspondence with any particular system. Though a little over one quarter mark [62.2gms], a measure used for silver and for bread and a possible value noted for a single discoid weight from medieval London (Egan 1998, tables 14-15, fig. 229), the abraded condition and irregular form leave the loss of an uncertain amount of fabric possible. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Post…

Lead and copper alloy weight. Cast annular biconvex fishing weight, with a sharp circumferential aris between its halves, a bevelled central aperture, and with eight moulded hemispherical bosses equidistantly spaced around either side. A drawn wire copper alloy loop projects from the edge. Lightly patinated. This is a modern weight for a fishing line, of a massy type more usually associated with coastal or inshore fishing. Suggested date: Modern, 1950-2000. Diameter: 45.2mm, Thickness: 17.5mm, Weight: 162.60gms

Lead weight. Cast trapezoid flat-sided weight with an approximately central pierced hole of diameter 4.9mm; possibly knife trimmed, patinated, and with light adventitious scratches. The mass may suggest this to have represented one [underweight] quarter pound averdepois. The hole may have been to permit suspended storage, or possibly use as a steelyard poise.

A cast lead alloy trade weight dating from the Medieval period, about AD 1300 - 1500. It is shield shaped and has a raised shield shaped area n the front, but any design is now illegible. There is an unusually shaped depression in the centre of the reverse, which may be the remains of a authentication mark. There is also a patch or iron corrosion near the lower point on the reverse, and a magnet suggests there is an iron plug here, possible to fine tune the weight. The weight has a mass of 219gm (7 3/4oz) so was probably intended as an 8oz weight. It has, however suffered some damage; …

Lead weight. Approximately one half of a cast discoid weight of plano-convex section, neatly cut, presumably across its middle. The mass now suggests the object to weigh one [overweight] quarter of an averdepois pound, and this may suggest the object to have begun life as a half pound weight.

Copied from SWYOR-E1D252 An undatable (but likely to be Medieval to Post-Medieval, about AD 1100 - 1800) conical lead alloy standing weight, with a hole sideways through the apex. It stands at 29.9mm in height with a base diameter of (max) 24.6mm and weighs 61.2g, so was probably intended to be a 2oz weight. The base is slightly concave and there is a small depression at the centre. There are no marking or designs on the weight, but it is somewhat pockmarked and is damaged at the base. It has a well-developed cream coloured patina. This weight is similar to SWYOR-E1D252 and to HAMP-F…

A cast lead artefact, possibly a weight, probably of Medieval to Post Medieval date, about AD 1350 - 1800. It consists of a quarter segment of a sphere. Both flat sides and the outer hemispherical side are smooth, undecorated and evenly patinated with a light cream patina. The weight is 15.4mm long, 8.5mm wide and 7.7mm thick. It weighs 6.23gm. This is equal to 4 pennyweights in the English Troy system, but is also close to quarter of an ounce, or 100 grains. The shape being a quarter sphere could argue for it being a 0.25 ounce weight.

Copper-alloy post-medieval circular trade weight, dating to the period c. 1558 - 1603 AD. The weight is circular in plan and rectangular in section, with a raised rim on the upper face. The upper face is stamped with the sword of St Paul and an ewer, denoting that the weight was made by the Founders Company in London. Also stamped are the crowned letters EL, attesting that the weight was approved during the reign of Elizabeth I. These motifs are arranged around a central sub-circular depression with central dot. The back of the weight is flat and betrays linear score marks where the ob…

A lead perforated weight of probably Post Medieval to Modern date, about AD 1500 - 1900. It is flat and rectangular in section, and an elongated octagon in plan. There is a keyhole shaped hole through the weight at one end (rounded at one end and narrower and rectangonal at the other); it is not clear whether it was always intended to be this shape, or whether it has been worn by suspension on a loop or rope. The edges and corners of the weight are worn and rounded. This may be from water damage, since the weight was found near a river. This has led to speculation that the weight may h…
