Lead possible weight fragment. Cast flat-sided rectangle of lead, lipped from the mould along two adjacent edges and sheared at one end. Patinated. The present mass could point to an original value in excess of one averdepois ounce for the post-medieval period, though the loss of an uncertain extent vitiates further speculation; the cutting might represent deliberate cancellation rather than fortuitous damage. Alternatively perhaps a small ingot. Suggested date: Unknown, Later Medieval to Post-Medieval, 1350-1800 Length: 30.0mm, Width: 28.2mm, Thickness: 6.0mm, Weight: 39.50gms

Lead weight. Small cast plano-convex weight with a central probably moulded aperture of diameter 4.8mm, possibly partly melted; patinated. Possibly a line weight, though markedly lighter than most objects thought to have served that function. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1500 Diameter: 15.8mm, Thickness: 9.5mm, Weight: 5.99gms

Lead weight. Cast plano-convex weight with two adjacent facets, otherwise rounded; shrinkage lines on the flat side suggest this was cast in an open mould. A tapered hole of diameter 5-3.5mm passes through longitudinally off-centre. Probably a line weight. Patinated. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1500 Diameter (long axis): 25.4mm, Thickness: 17.1mm, Weight: 44.15gms

Lead weight. Cast oval weight, of rectangular section with rounded ends. One end is nicked, which may be provision for tied fastening, though weights of this form would more usually have an integrally cast or drilled apical loop. Patinated. The form is broadly comparable with that of line weights and net sinkers of medieval date, though this is smaller than most examples of this form. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1500 Length: 31.4mm, Width: 11.6mm, Thickness: 9.1mm, Weight: 22.75gms

Limestone cobble possible unfinished weight. A slightly irregular water-rolled cobble with possibly part-drilled holes at a thinner part towards one edge; if indeed drilled, then this was from both sides. The sharply indented form might alternatively have arisen from the activity of a boring animal or from the loss of embedded fossils, both being natural processes. An artificial origin might be supported by the rough chipping of stone from either side of the cobble, which, if deliberate, may have lessened the depth to be bored. The enterprise was at all events abandoned. Improvised wei…

Lead weight. Cast shield-shaped weight of plano-convex section, with a channel bordering the upper part of the convex face. Patinated. The mass, albeit imprecisely measured with postal scales, might suggest this to have represented one half of an averdepois pound. Suggested date: Late Medieval, 1350-1500. Length: 55.6mm, Width: 42.4mm, Thickness: 14.7mm, Weight: c.215gms

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

: Lead possible weight, perhaps used as a line weight. Cast hollow conical object with a thinner part of its wall bearing a small hole, probably at the site of a casting flaw, and with a longitudinal moulded aperture of diameter 8.5mm. A possible tying notch appears at the upper end [as illustrated]. Patinated. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1500. Diameter: 16.8mm, Length: 19.0mm, Thickness (wall, maximum): 4.9mm, Weight: 18.80gms

Lead possible weight. A small cast oval billet with rounded ends, probably lightly hammered to a coffee-bean shape, flattening one of its opposed larger sides. Patinated. The mass does not immediately suggest this object to observe any particular system of measurement. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Post-Medieval, 43-1800.

Copper alloy weight. A cast discoid weight with incised lines on its upper surface and the upper surface of its rim, from a nested set. The incised lines on the upper surface and turning marks on the lower indicate the object was finished on a lathe. The mass may suggest this to represent two [underweight] averdepois ounces. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1750-1850. Diameter: 38.4mm, Thickness (at rim): 7.7mm, Weight: 53.0gms

Copper alloy weight. Cast rectangular weight with bevelled edges, and with the numerals 2 1 stamped into its upper side. The mass is a little over one quarter of an averdepois ounce, though the notation might point to thiscoming from a set for specialist, perhaps pharmaceutical, use. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1650-1800 Length: 22.9mm, Width: 15.9mm, Thickness: 3.7mm, Weight: 7.79gms

Lead weight. Cast discoid weight of short cylindrical form with a broad circumferential border enclosing lettering [now illegible] stamped on one side, just possibly with a central bust. The design, most clearly at the rim, may draw on that of the 'cartwheel' coinage of 1797. Lightly patinated. The mass may suggest this was intended to represent one half of an averdepois pound. The stamped legend might suggest this weight was for commercial use or of commercial provenance. From the mid-18th-century, the use of lead weights was curtailed, though contrarily, official inspection stamps ap…

Lead weight. Cast oval weight of an oblique plano-convex profile with a tapered aperture of diameter 4.4-6.2mm; patinated. Shrinkage on the broader flat face suggests it was cast in an open mould. The form may originally have been circular, the current shape arising from adventitious damage, as is probably a deep cut on one side. The hole is rather small to admit a spindle, so the object may have served as a line weight. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1500. Diameter (long axis): 23.0mm, Thickness: 9.1mm, Weight: 15.78gms

Lead possible weight. Cast discoid flat-sided weight with a tiny [diameter c.1.3mm] pierced hole off-centre; patinated. One of two similar objects reported together from the same general location. The hole would admit a fine cord, perhaps of horsehair, and may suggest a use as a fishing line weight, though a flat discoid form is unusual, and perhaps indicates the personal preference of an individual.

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.

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.

Lead alloy weight. A concavo-convex fragment of lead alloy, cut down to trapezoid form with a hole of diameter 3.5mm probably roughly drilled from one side, producing a countersunk aperture on its convex side. The metal is delaminating, a feature most usually observed on cast post-medieval spoons. Here, a large spoon bowl may have been cut or broken to improvise a line weight for fishing. Alternatively, as it is thick for a spoon bowl, this may be a shard from the everted rim of a vessel with improvised provision for suspension. In either case, the addition of the hole was a crudely ex…
