Lead weight. A sub-rhomboid scrap of thin cast sheet with cut edges, and with a pierced hole of diameter 2mm at its narrower end. Patinated. Possibly to weight a fishing line; the gently bent form here could, if it were original, impart a spinning motion permitting use as a lure. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1500. Length: 29.4mm, Width: 17mm, Thickness: 2mm, Weight: 6.88gms

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 copper alloy quarter ounce pan weight of post-Medieval date, dating from the Georgian period or later, about AD 1714 - 1850 It is circular and lathe turned, with a raised rim on the upper face, and an inner circular groove. In the centre is stamped a mark, probably a crown, above the letter GR. This may stand for George Rex and indicate the monarch when the weight was made, or may indicate a the place of issue: See DUR-85ED28 which cites "Biggs (1993, English Weights, An Illustrated Survey, 54) where it states that the markings refer to the place of issue. The crowned GR mark is sai…

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.)…

A complete lead-alloy weight or spindle whorl of uncertain date. The object is conical with irregular sloping sides, one which comes to a straight edge, and a central perforation running through it. All surfaces appear undecorated and are worn. The metal is a mid-brown colour. The object is 26.7mm long, 22.9mm wide, 8.9mm thick and weighs 26.9g. The perforation is 6.3mm in diameter. Lead spindle whorls and 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.

Lead alloy weight, probably a spindle whorl dating from the 13th-15th century AD. The weight is circular in shape awith a central hole for the spindle. It is roughly rectangular in cross-section, with very worn surfaces. It was decorated with a very untidy moulded line and dot decoration. Lead weights like these are common finds, but only rarely from excavated contexts which is why date and origin are difficult to pinpoint. Decorated lead-alloy weights are very rare finds in excavations, but are often found by metal detectorists. They are usually biconical or cylindrical in shape an…

A complete cast lead weight probably dating to the medieval to post medieval period. The weight is triangular in shape, with rounded edges. The upper surface is slightly convex, with an incised border all the way around. The reverse is flat and undecorated. The metal is a light brownish-white colour and is worn. The weight is 56.8 mm long, 44.2 mm wide and 25.3 mm thick. It weighs 436.0 g. Such objects are difficult to date with any degree of certainty without contextual evidence or any diagnostic features, but it is most likely to be of medieval to post medieval date.

Probably an early Post Medieval cast lead alloy, or lead, biface weight or possibly token. One face is decorated with an impressed fleur de lys & on the other a raised long cross with raised single pellets in each angle and a damaged boss at the centre of the cross. The decoration derives from medieval long cross coins but the impressed fleur is more suggestive of the Post Medieval period, though it may indicate reuse. The heaviness of the object suggests it is a weight rather than a token even though its decoration is token like. The weight is …

Medieval lead or lead alloy bi convex decorated spindle whorl or weight probably dating from c1100 to 1500 AD. The spindle whorl is sub circular in shape, and lentoid in section. Both faces have been decorated with raised decoration of a series of lines. The central perforation has an approximate internal diameter of 9mm. The diameter is 26mm and weight 24.59g. Spindle whorls, as an artefact type, can be hard to date accurately as they remained in use for a long period of time, however lead alloy spindle whorls of this type are normally attributed to the medieval period.
