Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead Roman to Post Medieval weight, dating to AD 43-1800. It is a conical weight with a rounded apex in which an iron loop has been inserted and sealed with lead alloy still visible on the base of the weight. The sides of the weight have traces of iron corrosion as well as scratches and dentings. Weights such as this have been used from Roman through to Post Medieval times and numerous weight-related functions are likely, perhaps as a steelyard weight, standing weight, net weight or fishing weight. Close examples are NLM-ADDC7B, NARC-1D2E44, Diameter: 27.28 mm Height: 44.43 mm

An iron core in copper-alloy casing Early Medieval weight, dating to AD 850-1066. It is spherical with two opposite flat faces. One face has a circular sunken line decorated with a series of punched annulets; the opposite flat face might have had the same decoration, but the iron corrosion has burts through the copper-alloy coating and covers large part of the surface. Cf. Rogerson (in EAA 74, 1995, p. 69, fig. 52, no. 136). See a parallel on PAS: NMS-8BB723 Diameter: 24.23 mm Height: 17.83 mm Weight: 40.51 g

A complete cast lead-alloy weight of probable Post-Medieval date, c. 1500-1800. It is circular in plan, with a moulded design on its upper surface consisting a large raised pellet-in-ring motif. Preserved in fair condition with an even whitish patina, it measures 28.46mm in diameter, 5.79mm thick, and weighs 27.06g.

A complete lead Roman to post-medieval weight. It is very small in size and roughly pyramidal in shape. There is a small amount of damage to one side. Weights such as these were in use from the Roman to post-medieval periods changing little in form and as such are difficult to date more precisely without further diagnostic features.

A complete cast lead-alloy hanging weight of probable late Medieval to early Post-Medieval date, c. 1400-1700.

An incomplete cast lead-alloy weight of possible Roman to Medieval date, c. 43-1500 AD. The weight is conical and fairly squat, with a flat base that tapers inwards to a pointed top where there is a narrow slit, presumable originally where an iron loop or similar would have projected from (though this is now missing). Preserved in fair condition with an even whitish patina, it stands 23.98mm high and measures 31.06mm in diameter at its base. It weighs 128.58g. Weights of this broad form underwent a long period of use, occuring in contexts from the Roman to Medieval periods. As such…
