A cast solid circular lead weight with sloping sides and flat upper and lower surfaces, white patinated overall. It is 26.0 mm in diameter at the top, and 29.1mm at the base, and is 10.1mm thick, and weighs 55.4gms. The mass suggests that this may represent two ounces in either the averdepois or mercantile systems of measurement, and round weights of this approximate value appear amongst finds from the London waterfront (Egan 1998, tables 14 and 15). Suggested date for this object would be medieval to post-medieval, c.1300-1600.

Lead possible weight. Cast plano-convex object with a small dimple on its convex side. Patinated. The mass may suggest this to have represented one half of an ore/ora or three Viking Age units of 4.07gms. A conical ribbed playing piece or weight of similar mass (NLM-C98990) was reported as from the same general location, and indeed this object might qualify as one of the plainer pieces used in the game of Hnafetafl. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-950 Diameter: 16.5mm, Thickness: 8.3mm, Weight: 12.62gms

A cast copper-alloy trade weight of post-medieval date. The front face of the weight is circular in plan with a raised rim. It has a stamped circle in the center which may indicate it was turned on a lathe. Surrounding the circle are three motifs; a dagger, the shield of St George, and a third motif which is indiscernible but may represent an ewer. The reverse is flat and plain with original file marks. The dagger symbol indicates that the weight was stamped in London. The ewer denotes the weight was approved by the Founder's Company in London. It is not possible to discern a preci…

An almost complete post-Medieval copper-alloy trade weight (1590-1862). This trade weight is circular in plan with flaring sides and bevelled at the base. At the top the diameter is 23.4mm and the diameter at the base is 20.2mm. The flat rim has a width of 2.7mm. The upper face is slightly dished and has a circumferential groove at the centre. A stamped ewer/coffee pot at 6 0' clock is the approved mark of the London Founders Company and the stamp was used between 1590 and 1826 (Biggs 1992: 50). The rear face is flat and has a central lathe centring point in the form of a circular pit…

A lead weight of uncertain date, Roman to Post Medieval, AD 43 - 1800. The weight is ovoid and has a depression at each end. These were originally assumed to be perforations for attachment loops, but the hollows are only 1mm deep and there are no traces of iron corrosion. This weight is therefore unlikey to be a Roman steelyard weight. It does, however, work as a standing weight. It is 26.2mm long, 20.9mm wide and 18.1mm thick, with a mass of 53.1g. This mass is equal to two Roman ounces (1 uncia is 27.3g) or 1/6 of a Roman libra. However, it is also very close to 1/8 of a pound in the…

Copper alloy possible weight. A cast disc with bevelled edge, and with both sides now occupied by a dense and loosely concentric mass of scratched or incised lines. A pit of diameter w.7mm lies off-centre on one side, and the edges are, or rather were, given the abraded condition, formerly bevelled. The mass might suggest this to have been a weight, possibly representing one quarter of an averdepois ounce, though some fabric must have been lost. The damage seems too severe to have arisen by casual abrasion in the soil, and might rather evidence the handiwork of a naughty and destructiv…

Lead possible weight. Cast cylindrical or barrel-shaped object with a large round central aperture of diameter 6mm; patinated. If used as a weight, this would presumably be on either a line or the selvedge of a net - the size of hole would admit the latter. The oblate form is similar to that of larger and later weights used by fishermen, while the mass is close to one quarter of an averdepois ounce. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1700 Length: 13.6mm, Diameter: 11.7mm, Weight: 7.60gms

Lead possible weight. Cast and possibly originally discoid weight, either flattened or trimmed to a hexagonal form. Patinated. The mass may suggest this to have represented three Viking-Age units of 4.07gms as used for silver bullion transactions, or one half of an ora/ore, the contemporary equivalent of an [underweight] ounce. Qualifying this suggestion, it should be acknowledged that examples of values of odd numbers of units are fairly rare in what was effectively a duodecimal system. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-950 Diameter: 16.5mm, Thickness: 8.1mm, Weight: 12.42gms

Lead possible weight. Cast plano-convex weight with a central moulded and tapered aperture of diameter 5-4mm, appearing square on the convex side, which might imply the tip of a nail shank has been used as a former. Shrinkage lines on the flat side suggest the object was cast in an open mould. Patinated. The finder kindly suggests this to be an early medieval weight, but the hole would be an unusual feature and the mass does not respect contemporary units of measurement. The hole is also a little small to have accommodated a spindle, ruling out a function as a whorl. The mass does, tho…
