Lead possible weight. A disc cut from thick [up to 4mm] cast lead sheet, possibly with a toothed wheel which appears to have left billeted marks around the edge. A pair of cuts of length c.20mm hare executed from opposite edges, and one side of the object has subsequently been bent over on itself. Patinated, with slight more recent abrasion revealing grey metal. The slashes may represent the cancellation of a weight, perhaps representing two [underweight] averdepois ounces. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1800. Diameter: 40.6mm, Thickness: 4mm, Weight: 49.35gms

Lead and white metal weight. A small flat-based discoid or cylindrical weight with an embedded object occupying a slightly [0.8mm] sunken hollow on one side. The embedded object is a grey, flat, plain metallic disc with a neatly incised line across its middle; a shallow depression appears on the opposite flat surface. One edge of the weight is either distorted by impact or lightly melted. If of Anglo-Scandinavian date, the mass might suggest this to have represented two [underweight] Viking Age units of 4.07gms, though the correspondence with this putative standard is less precise than…

Lead circular weight of probable post-medieval date (c. 1500 - 1750 AD). The object is circular in plan, with sloping sides. It is of irregular thickness, with one side obviously thicker than the other. Both upper and lower faces are slightly sunken in the middle. The surface of the object is worn and notched. It has a smooth, light-brown patina. The object is 33.48mm in diameter, 14.84mm at maximum thickness and weighs 109.81g. Lead weights are difficult to date without archaeological context; however, weights of this form are typically assigned to the post-medieval period. Similar e…

Post-Medieval lead trade weight dating to c. AD 1603-1688. The weight is circular in shape with a flat top and a slightly concave back. It is stamped on the top face with two marks: an indented area containing a slightly raised capital A with a pointed cross bar, to indicate it is for the Averdepois system, next to an indented area with a slightly raised crowned capital I, for James I or possibly James II. The weight measures 30.5 mm in diameter and 15.3 mm in thickness. It weighs 105.6 g, corresponding to a quarter pound in the averdepois system. Similar examples are SOM-FD8884 and D…

A lead standing weight. The weight is an octagonal pyramid, fluted at the sides resulting in an irregular octagon in section, wider at the base and tapering to the top where there is an integral suspension loop. Its total length is 52.5 mm, diameter 20.5 mm at its base narrowing to 11.5 mm at the top, immediately below the rectangular suspension loop which is 11 mm x 7 mm. The loop has been slightly crushed and bent and is pierced by a hole which is now 3 mm wide and 1.5 mm deep. The weight has a mass of 99.6 g (3.51 ounces avoirdupois). The weight is unstamped and there is a hole near…

A complete cast copper-alloy Post Medieval (c. 1600-1800) cast round (crotal) bell, reused possibly as a bell. Description: The bell comprises two hemispherical domes divided horizontally by a circumferential ridge. The upper hemisphere has two circular sound holes. A relatively large suspension loop projects from the apex of the upper dome, with integrally cast hole. The lower hemisphere has a long, wide sound slit with circular holes at the ends. The bell is worn, and the bottom hemisphere is decorated, with a rough sunburst design. At the sound slot on the bottom of the bell are th…

Lead weight. Cast discoid weight, flattened on part of its edge, whether deliberately is uncertain. The letter W or M, in a rectangular panel and preceded or followed by a thick bar, in apparently recent style made up of crisp overlapping Vs, has been stamped thrice upon one flat side; patinated. Weights of this value do not appear amongst those reported from the London waterfront (Egan 1998, table 15, fig. 229). The apparent modernity of the stamped lettering is also at odds with the simple form and patinated surface of the weight. Suggested date: possibly Post-Medieval, 1500-1800. D…

A lead standing weight of uncertain date, Early Medieval to Post Medieval, about AD 850 - 1700. The weight is roughly conical, but the base is pentagonal and the five sides taper as they extend upwards. The upper end of the weight is curved to the side and is damaged, making it unclear what shape it was originally. It is 35.1mm tall, 19.4mm wide and 18.3mm thick. 50.3g. This mass is only a little short of two ounces. Compare CORN-6BC1A8 and GLO-F61AB4.

A conical lead alloy standing weight of probable Medieval to Post-Medieval date,about AD 1300 - 1700. The weight is conical in form. The sides of the weight flare to the flat sub-circular base.The top is rounded and there is no evidence of an attachment loop. The weight is undecorated. It has a well-developed cream coloured patina across all surfaces. Weights can be hard to date due to being a functional item that has not altered significantly over time. Biggs and Withers (2000) note that standing weights made of lead were still used in comparatively recent times. It is 34.7mm tall…

Lead net weight or sinkers. A large quantity of lead weights together with some fragments. They have been made by rolling a rectangular piece of cast lead sheet of varying thickness and length and subsequent circumference, forming an indeterminate overlapping or butted seam. Patinated, and mostly a creamy white colour. The largest of the weights found is 69.49mm long, 15.55mm wide and 11.36mm thick and weighs 82g. The smallest of the weights found is 16.47mm long, 5.84mm wide 5.55mm thick, and weighs 2.86g. The total weight of all the weights is 1320g. These were probably wrapped or…
