A lead possible weight of uncertain date, Roman to Post Medieval. It is ovoid and solid with a particularly pitted surface. A casting sprue projects from the middle of one long edge and is lozenge shaped in cross-section. The object is very similar in form to steelyard weights, but these usually have an iron suspension loop which is not present on this example. There is also some similarity with Roman shot, though the casting sprue would not usually be present. The object is 31.9mm long, 25.7mm wide and 23.4mm thick. 50.77g. Compare KENT-07EBBD (though this probably has a longitudinal…

A lead alloy shield shaped trade weight dating from the Medieval period, about AD 1250 - 1500. The design in relief on the front is Latin cross, within a raised border, with three large pellets across the top edge. The reverse is plain. With a mass of 55.45g (1.9oz) this was probably intended to be a 2 ounce weight in the mercentile or avoirdupois systems. See page 302 of Egan's The Medieval Household (2010). The weight has a well developed yellow grey patina with many dents and scratches, some recent. Compare YORYM-050D6A, GLO-380875, YORYM-238AE7 and YORYM-9DA396. The weight is 31.4…

A cast lead weight of Early Medieval date, about AD 700 - 1000. It is in the form of a flat disc. On the upper surface and slightly off-centre, is a circular, flattened dome of a secondary metal, thought to be silver, which may be the end of a pin or rivet. This attaches a white metal or silver plate to the top of the disc, of which only a fragment now survives. The surviving part of the plate is decorated with a chevron of double incised lines. The weight has a dark cream patina. It is 12.8mm in diameter and 7.9mm thick. It weighs 7.17gm. This object is interpreted as an Early Med…

A cast lead possible weight of unknown date, AD 43 - 1900. It is in the form of a circular, flat disc with a sub-circular depression in the upper side. The sides are vertical and the base flat. The weight is unmarked and has a dark cream patina. It is 21.9mm in diameter and 7.1mm thick. It weighs 18.1g.

However, this object could also be a plug for fixing a metal railing or gate pin or similar into stone, the lead used to grip t…

A complete lead trade weight of medieval to post-medieval date. The weight is shield shaped with a worn moulded relief design on the upper surface. The design cannot be determined due to wear.

A lead weight, roughly circular and thick with straight sides, very slightly rounded on one face and flat on the other. The central aperture is neatly circular and has a diameter of 3.62mm at one end widening to 4.21mm at the other. The weight is a grey colour. Weight 59g, diameter c. 25mm, thickness 14.22mm. Close parallels on the PAS database include NARC-44E4B0, and the slightly smaller YORYM-3C17D4 and NARC-546555. Such weights are very difficult to date in the absence of an archaeological context, but are probably Roman at earliest and post-medieval at latest.

Lead weight. Cast sub-circular weight with flat sides; patinated overall. The mass may suggest this to represent one half ounce in either the averdepois or mercantile systems of measurement, and round weights of this approximate value appear amongst finds from the London waterfront (Egan 1998, tables 14 and 15). Suggested date: Medieval to Post-Medieval, 1300-1600. Diameter: 19.3mm, Thickness: 5.9mm, Weight: 14.65gms
