A sub-circular lead weight of 38.6mm diameter and 9.4mm thickness. The object weighs 88.62g (3.13oz). This artefact has a roughly 'D' shaped cross-section being flatter on the reverse and slightly domed on the decorated upper surface. The decorative surface is unclear but seems to consist of a cross, the four quarters between the arms being recessed below the surface of the arms and outer circular border. Close observation reveals that a possible crescent, or possibly a damaged pellet, is present within one of the recessed quarters. A pellet or possibly a line of three pellets is prese…

Lead possible weight. Cast sub-rectangular weight with one rounded and thicker end, and with a sunken panel apparently formed by stamping with a die or coin of 26mm diameter which appears to have had a plain perimeter of width 3.5mm - in the manner of the 'cartwheel' coinage of 1797, though that issue did not include coins of this size. Both ends of the object also bear multiple crescentic and triangular stamp or bite marks, perhaps more likely the latter, which are carried over onto the underside at the straight end of the object. Lightly patinated. The mass might suggest this to repr…

An ovoid lead weight, token or token-like object, unifacial, with five balls arranged in a cruciform pattern inside what may have originally been circular but are now reduced to semicircles. The object is not coin-like, having a high relief on one side and being mostly flat at the base. A similar but heavier example is featured in the catalogue of the David Rogers collection (Biggs & Withers 2000, p. 24).

A cast lead alloy trade weight dating from the Medieval period, about AD 1300 - 1500. It is shield shaped and has a raised shield shaped area on the front face. The central design is of a crown over a fleur in relief. The weight has a mass of 213gm (7 1/2oz) so was probably intended as an 8oz weight. It has, however suffered some damage to the pointed base and the upper corners. The weight is 52.7mm long, 41.5mm wide and 15.0mm thick. It has a patchy cream and grey patina. Similar weights are discussed and illustrated in Biggs and Withers, 2000, Lead Weights: The David Rogers Collecti…

A lead weight probably of post medieval date (c. 1600-1900) The object is lozenge-shaped, with well formed flat surfaces but with no stamp or decoration. Edges are rounded, giving a sub-rectangular section. One end is blunt, the other tapers to a neck and terminates on an old break, revealing what appears to be embedded wire, which would probably have formed a suspension loop. There are dents and scars on all surfaces, possibly from post depositional chewing by grazing animals. Lozenge-shaped weights are often identified as fishing weights on this database. Length iis 44.5 mm, width 2…

Weight 1 - The diameter is 27mm and the weight 30.41g. Weight 2 - The diameter is 15mm and the weight 24.09g.
