Two complete cast lead weight of probable Roman date. Both weights are plano-convex with a central rod of iron projecting from the base and apex which was most probably used for suspension. 1. Height: 13.4mm; Diameter: 14.6mm; Weight: 15.6g. 2. Height: 9.4mm; Diameter: 16.2mm; Weight: 14.8g. Plain weights were cast locally in lead from the Roman period onwards for a wide variety of uses and are hard to date precisely. However, it is likely that these examples are Roman in date.

Cast lead possible Roman weight. It is cylindrical, with a central iron core, which would have become a loop, but has now broken. Roman steelyward weights are usually biconical, not cylindrical but this example does have the iron core like the Roman ones, so it is possible it is Roman rather than Post Medieval.

Cast lead weight of uncertain date. It is circular in plan and rectangular in cross-section. In the centre of the object is a circular perforation which has been filled with iron. The weight is undecorated. It has a smooth mid-white patina. Lead weights are common from the Roman through to the Post-Medieval period and therefore difficult to date accurately.

Cast lead weight with an iron core. It is cylindrical in shape with a thin iron core protruding out the top which would have become a hook. Although it seems similar to Roman weights due to its iron core the shape is unusual so no specific date has been assigned.
