Lead alloy weight probably a spindle whorl Medieval to Post-medieval dating 1200 - 1600AD. The object is circular in plan and slightly conical. In the centre of the object the perforation has an internal diameter of 9mm. It appears to be undecorated. The object has a light grey patina. The diameter is 18mm and the weight 24.63g. Spindle whorls have reportedly been found in contexts dated from the Roman through to the Post-Medieval period although the majority are typically dated broadly to the medieval period c.1100-1500.

Late Early Medieval to early post medieval cast lead alloy, or lead, biconical weight. Probably a spindle whorl or net weight. The abraded decoration consists of crude rays with raised dots between them on one side and on the other side there is no visible decoration. In the "Finds Recording Guide", Geake (2001, p66) points out that: "The function of lead weights would have varied, from spindle-whorls to fishing weights to trade weights." She adds that spindle whorls should ideally be circular and must have a central perforation (ibid.). It is possible, therefore, that this lea…

A circular lead weight, probably of Medieval date, about AD 1200 - 1500. It is circular with a flat base, rounded sides and a deeply concave upper face, the hollow within a plain border. There appears to be the remains of a pointed and square-topped shield moulded in the base of the hollow, but mainly obliterated by a series of short deep scratches and a circular piercing; these could be attemps to cancel the weight. The weight is 35.7mm in diameter and 9.7mm thick. It weighs 80.11gm, perhaps approaching the suggested mass of quarter of a Tower or Troy pound (Egan, 1998, page 302). Th…

A complete lead-alloy weight of uncertain date, probably medieval to Post-Medieval c.AD 1500 - 1800. The object is circular in plan with a central circular perforation and raised rim. The object is undecorated. The metal is a dark brown colour. The object is 35.1mm in diameter, 11.6mm thick and weighs 85g. The perforation is 10.4mm in diameter. The dating of lead objects of this general type is problematic, and their use is invariably uncertain. The term 'weight' is used here in its broadest sense to include uses that do not involve weighing (e.g. holding-down, tensioning, etc.)…
