Lead weight of Medieval or Post Medieval date, roughly disc shaped with angled sides, both the top and bottom of the disc are smooth, the sides rougher. The top is smooth and bears a cross, incised after casting. The crude and simple form of this object makes it impossible to suggest a date and stylistic grounds and It has not been possible to match the mass of this object with any recorded system of weights. A similar weight found in the same area as this object weighs 46.76g which bears no relationship to the module of this find. Length 31.6mm, Width 29.0mm, Thickness 12.4mm reducing…

A conical lead alloy standing weight of probable Medieval to Post-Medieval date,about AD 1300 - 1700. The weight is conical in form. The sides of the weight flare to the flat sub-circular base.The top is rounded and there is no evidence of an attachment loop. The weight is undecorated. It has a well-developed cream coloured patina across all surfaces. Weights can be hard to date due to being a functional item that has not altered significantly over time. Biggs and Withers (2000) note that standing weights made of lead were still used in comparatively recent times. It is 34.7mm tall…
