Lead weight. Cast cylindrical weight or flywheel with one flat and one bevelled face with a countersunk centre. A central aperture of diameter 6mm bears fine machine cut screw thread. The metal retains a grey tint; circumferential lines on the outer edge may suggest the object rotated when in use. Presumably a machinery fitting. Suggested date: Modern, 1900-1950.

Lead weight. Cast conical flat-based standing weight with a flat-sided triangular apical lug drilled with a hole of diameter 3mm. Patinated. A slight hollowing of the base may indicate this was made in an open mould. The mass might permit this to have represented four Roman unciae of 27.3gms or, a little less precisely, four averdepois ounces or one quarter pound. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Medieval, 43-1500. Diameter: 30.7mm, Height: 34.4mm, Weight: 108.91gms

A complete Medieval to post-Medieval copper-alloy cup weight (c. 1485-c. 1547). This cup weight, part of a set, is circular in plan with straight sides that flare out from the base towards the plain rim. The base is convex and the floor of the cup is concave. At the centre of the floor there is a central circular pit which is probably related to lathe-work. Adjacent to the pit are two stamped motifs: a rose and a lower case 'h'. The letter 'h' may indicate that the weight was issued during the reign of Henry VII (1485-1509) or Henry VIII (1509-1547). The weight is dark brown with tra…

Lead weight. A cast globular weight of a significant mass exceeding 500gms [the limit of weighing machines available to this reporter]. Patinated, with numerous straight cuts in its sides. The finder correctly notes the similarity of the object to those steelyard weights ascribed to the Roman period, though it lacks any evidence for means of suspension enabling it to function in that way - unless the cut-marks were deliberately inflicted to furnish tying notches. The object has a slightly flattened base which would at least enable its function as a standing weight. Suggested date: poss…

Lead weight. Cast discoid hem weight with a sunken central panel on one side with a pair of stitching holes of diameter 2.5mm in its base. The edge of the weight is lightly bevelled. The object bears a coating of brown paint or varnish. The mass suggests an intended weight of one half ounce. The object is in unusually good condition, which may suggest that its context has suffered scant disturbance since its deposition. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1850-1900. Diameter: 22.3mm, Thickness: 3.5mm, Weight: 14.43gms

A complete lead weight or spindle whorl of uncertain date. The object is conical shaped with a flat base and circular perforation in the centre. The overall shaping is uneven, sub-circular and quite crudely made, creating a sub-circular perforation. All the surfaces are worn and undecorated. The metal is worn and creamy grey in colour. The object is 28.2 mm in diameter, 8.2 mm thick and weighs 24.1 g. The perforation is 12.7 mm in diameter. Lead spindle whorls and weights were commonly used from the Iron Age through to the post-medieval period and are difficult to date with any cert…
