Lead possible weight. Cast disc with a plain cross casually incised on both sides, and with intermediate arms added by lighter cuts between the arms of the cross on one side only, after the fashion of the Union Flag. The other side also bears supplementary lines, but these are parallel to one of the bars of the plain cross. Patinated. The mass of the object could suggest it to represent six [slightly overweight] pennyweight in the English Troy system introduced from the later Middle Ages (Egan 1998, table 14 - in which 12 pennyweight = 18.70gms); arrangements of scratches occasionally …

A complete lead alloy weight or gaming piece of uncertain dating. The weight is disc shaped, with flat faces and rounded sides. The metal is worn and creamy brown in colour. The weight is 28.9 mm in diameter and 5.4 mm thick. It weighs 32.3 g. The dating of lead objects of this general type is problematic, and their use is invariably uncertain. This function is not certain however and the object may have served another purpose.

Lead probable weight. Cast flat-based cylindrical weight with a rounded or domed top; lightly indented, patinated overall. The sides appear lightly facetted or indented. The mass might suggest this to have represented 16 [slightly overweight] units of 4.07gms, as used for silver bullion transactions in Viking period Scandinavia, though the correspondence is less exact than is usually deemed necessary for a firm ascription to the period. The object may alternatively have served as a playing piece for a board game such as Hnafetafl - the same object might of course serve both purposes, e…

A complete lead or lead alloy weight or spindle whorl of unknown date (c. AD 43-1900). The weight is sub-spherical with flattened ends where the large central perforation truncates the ball. The inside walls of the hole are straight. Other weights of this shape have been suggested to be net or line weights from fishing as well as possible spindle whorls. The well developed patina suggests that the weight has some age, but it is not possible to suggest the exact period as such weights were in use from the Roman to the Modern period. Similar examples can be seen on the PAS database: SWY…

A flat, circular, cast lead weight, with moulded design on one side probably dating to around AD 1300 to 1700. The design has a raised rim and a raised design of a rectangular bar reaching across the diameter with a oval thickening at the centre. The weight is 406g, it is 73.25mm in diameter, and 13.9mm thick. There is signs of wear on one side of the weight which may be the reason as to why the weight doesnt fit to any known weight system. There is a possibility it could be a one pound weight using the averdepois weight system which uses 454g as 1 pound (Biggs and Withers, 2000, pg14).
