A complete lead-alloy weight of uncertain date. The object is circular with a flat top and base and a central perforation running through it. All surfaces appear undecorated and are worn. The metal has a mid-grey/brown patina. The object is 27.8mm in diameter, 8.6mm thick and weighs 39.9g. The perforation is 9.9mm in diameter. The term 'weight' is used here in its broadest sense to include uses that do not involve weighing (e.g. holding-down, tensioning, etc.). They were commonly used from the Iron Age through to the post-medieval period and are difficult to date with any certainty wi…

A cast lead artefact,probably a weight, of Medieval to Modern date, AD 1200 - 1900. It is in the form of a short squat bell, having a circular base and curved concave sides rising to a flat top. On the top is an integrally cast, rectangular suspension loop, pierced with a small, circular perforation. The weight has a patchy white patina. It is 19.1mm high, the diameter of the base is 28.1mm and it weighs 50.63g (1.78oz), so was probably intended as a two ounce weight. Similar weights are recorded on the database: compare for example records BERK-85F15B.

A fragment of a post medieval copper-alloy circular pan weight, 40.4mm in diameter and 6.5mm thick. The front is flat and divided into quarters by a thin moulded cross; each quarter has a number 1 in the centre, in line with the radius. The reverse is undecorated but has rounded edges. When complete it would have weighed around 90g / 3oz.

Lead possible weight, as kindly identified by the finder. A square offcut of cast sheet of thickness 2.9mm with an incised design on one side: parts of three squares nested within each other are discernible. These are not linked or crossed by other lines, so a Merels or Nine Men's Morris board motif can probably be ruled out. Patinated, and lightly crumpled, producing concave sides to both the object and to the linear design marked on it. If indeed a weight, this may have represented one [underweight] averdepois ounce. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1800. Length (as found): 33.4m…

~~Lead weight, in the form of a flat solid disc with slightly sloping sides. There is an off centre iron deposit that is most likely the remains of a iron wire loop Weights such as this were in use from the Roman to the Post-Medieval Period and has thus been assigned an unknown date.

Lead weight of Medieval or Post Medieval date, roughly disc shaped with angled sides, both the top and bottom of the disc are smooth, the sides rougher. The top is smooth and bears a cross, incised after casting. The crude and simple form of this object makes it impossible to suggest a date and stylistic grounds and It has not been possible to match the mass of this object with any recorded system of weights. A similar weight found in the same area as this object weighs 46.76g which bears no relationship to the module of this find. Length 31.6mm, Width 29.0mm, Thickness 12.4mm reducing…

A crudely cast lead weight of Medieval to Post Medieval date, about AD 1250 - 1800. It is, probably a two ounce weight in the mercantile system (see Egan, 1998, The Medieval Househole, page 302). It is in the form of a sub - circular, flat disc with an almost vertical edge. The upper surface is marked with a star of six, shallowly incised arms. There is also a semi-circular depression cutting across the design, which may be a casting flaw. The underside has a small, off-centre, conical depression, and two small straight grooves. The weight has a dark cream patina. It is 35.1mm in diame…

A possible small lead weight of probable Post Medieval to Modern date. The object is a short cylinder of lead with slightly angled sides. The top is uneven and the base has two deep circular holes in, perhaps where a wire loop or two pieces of wire were anchored. The object has a grey colour and little patina. It is 14.7mm in diameter, 8.3mm thick and weighs 11.05g. This is likely to have been a weight with a function other than as a standard unit of mass. It could also be a more modern seal or electrical terminal anchor point etc.

A late Medieval to Post Medieval undecorated lead alloy vessel or container, dating from c. AD 1400 - 1600. The vessel is D-shaped in section; being rounded at the front and flat at the back. The vessel is open at the top, and the sides taper towards the closed end. There are no attachment holes or rivets visible, suggesting that the vessel stood on its own rather than being attached to a wall. Similar examples of this object have often been referred to as bird feeders or holy water holders. See IOW-9AEDE6 for a similar example; and for 'alternative suggestions including: dice shakers,…
