Lead possible weight. Cast weight of trapezoid form, cast in an open mould, and with a narrow slit in its top perhaps indicating that an object was inserted to help extract it. The metal retains a grey tint which points to its recent date. The mass may suggests this to have represented a [slightly overweight] half averdepois ounce. It was presumably home made for private use. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1800-1900. Height: 13.9mm, Width: 18.4mm, Thickness: 9.6mm, Weight: 15.08gms

A complete lead-alloy weight of uncertain date. The object is cylindrical with a circular plan and a rectangular cross-section. The circular faces are both concave. All surfaces appear undecorated. The metal is white/brown in colour and is worn. The weight is 22.2mm in diameter, 14.7mm thick and weighs 49.0g. The term 'weight' is used here in its broadest sense to include uses that do not involve weighing (e.g. holding-down, tensioning, etc.). They were commonly used from the Iron Age through to the Post-Medieval period and are difficult to date with any certainty without supporting…

A lead weight, probably a steelyard weight. The weight is an elongated pyramid with a truncated apex. There is pierced hole running from the apex to the base where it emerges slightly off- centre. The base ia sub- angular and slightly dished around a collar encircling the hole. The dishing suggests this was cast in an open mould, point downwards. THe collar indicates that the lead was still fairly soft when the hole was made. The weight is equivalent to approximately 2.5 ounces. Date: Uncertain - Medieval to Post- Medieval - c. 1400 - 1800 Dimensions: 28.72 mm x 20.64 mm x 20.74 mm Wei…

Lead possible weight. Cast disc with a plain cross casually incised on both sides, and with intermediate arms added by lighter cuts between the arms of the cross on one side only, after the fashion of the Union Flag. The other side also bears supplementary lines, but these are parallel to one of the bars of the plain cross. Patinated. The mass of the object could suggest it to represent six [slightly overweight] pennyweight in the English Troy system introduced from the later Middle Ages (Egan 1998, table 14 - in which 12 pennyweight = 18.70gms); arrangements of scratches occasionally …

A complete lead alloy weight or gaming piece of uncertain dating. The weight is disc shaped, with flat faces and rounded sides. The metal is worn and creamy brown in colour. The weight is 28.9 mm in diameter and 5.4 mm thick. It weighs 32.3 g. The dating of lead objects of this general type is problematic, and their use is invariably uncertain. This function is not certain however and the object may have served another purpose.

Dimensions: 11.6mm tall, 10.7mm diameter; weight: 6.3g. 8.8mm tall, 8.6mm diameter; weight: 3.7g.

Lead probable weight. Cast flat-based cylindrical weight with a rounded or domed top; lightly indented, patinated overall. The sides appear lightly facetted or indented. The mass might suggest this to have represented 16 [slightly overweight] units of 4.07gms, as used for silver bullion transactions in Viking period Scandinavia, though the correspondence is less exact than is usually deemed necessary for a firm ascription to the period. The object may alternatively have served as a playing piece for a board game such as Hnafetafl - the same object might of course serve both purposes, e…
