An incomplete lead-alloy standing weight of uncertain date. The weight is conical with a flat base and rounded top. No decoration is apparent. The metal has a mid-grey patina and is worn. The weight is 57.5mm tall, 46.7mm - 24.4mm in diameter and weighs 661g. Lead weights were commonly used from the Iron Age through to the post-medieval period and are difficult to date with any certainty without supporting archaeological context. The function of such objects is also difficult to determine. The dating of lead objects of this general type is problematic, and their use is invariably uncertain.

A complete cast lead-alloy weight of medieval to post-medieval date, c.AD 1300 - 1600. The weight is conical with a rounded top and flat base and was likely formed by pouring molten lead into a thimble casing then allowing it to cool. The object is 19.2mm tall, 17.5mm to 13.9mm in diameter and weighs 32.8g. Although this object has been described as a weight, it may also be a gaming piece. Thimbles have been in common use in England from the 14th century onwards and Geoff Egan (2010, p.265) states that no medieval thimble indisputably dating from before the 14th century has been foun…
