: 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. Length: 12.9mm, Width: 7.2mm, Thickness: 7.0mm, Weight: 5.25gms

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. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1500. Diameter: 20.6mm, Thickness: 2.8mm, Weight: 7.71gms

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. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1700. Length: 27mm, Width: 27mm, Thickness: 4.9mm, Weight: 25.17gms

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. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1700. Length: 38.4mm, Width: 28.8mm, Thickness: 15.7mm, Weight: 104.27gms

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…

Lead probable weight. Cast trapezoid billet neatly cut from cast lead sheet. Patinated. The mass may suggest this to have represented an underweight quarter of an ounce. It was presumably for private rather than commercial use, as lead weights slipped from official favour from the 17th century onwards. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1650-1850.

Copper alloy possible weight. Cast globular to plano-convex rounded lump, with a flat side probably produced by a robust hammer strike. The convex face is deeply gouged, though this is thought to have distorted rather than removed its fabric. The mass exactly equates to three units of 4.07gms, as used in Viking Age Denmark for transactions of silver bullion. Both the Danish and Norse systems were duodecimal, and so uneven numbers of units appear less frequently than the even, though as one half of an ora/ore [a contemporary and underweight ounce] a value of three units should not be un…

Lead possible weight. Small cylindrical weight, probably cast in an open mould, with a ridged or uneven base [as cast; this was probably the top when in use]. Patinated. The surface condition argues some age for this object. Discoid weights from London include a cluster of round weights of just over 20gms mass, though these are not ascribed to any particular system of measurement (Egan 1998, table 15 and fig. 229). An object of this form might also be used as a playing piece for an early medieval board game. Suggested date: Unknown, Early Medieval to Medieval, 850-1500. Diameter: 18.6…

Lead possible weight. Cast oval plate, now folded; lightly patinated. The mass could suggest this to be an overweight quarter ounce weight under the averdepois system; the good surface condition may point to a relatively recent date.

Iron and copper alloy possible weight. A possibly cast iron object of a solid flat-based bowl-shaped form with relicts of thin [0.3mm] copper alloy sheathing on its flat base. This appears to have formerly extended further up the sides of the 'bowl', though both its original extent and the overall completeness of the object remain uncertain.

Lead weight. Cast conical to pear-shaped weight, flattened at its top, with a central drilled aperture of diameter 5mm. A series of angled cuts surround the aperture at the narrower end of the weight, in a rough left hand spiral arrangement, and these are perhaps distinct in their origin from other light and adventitious nicks on the body of the object. Patinated. The hole could indicate the provision of a separate loop, a typical feature of Roman steelyard weights. If so, it was withdrawn before corrosion could mark the object. The mass does not seem to relate closely to contemporary …
