Broad period: UNKNOWN
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete lead-alloy weight dating from the medieval to Post Medieval periods (1100-1800AD). The object is circular in plan and has been pierced which shows some signs of wear from being suspended. The back of the object is smooth but the upper surface appears to be decorated with randomly placed pellets. Although it is possible that this is just a result of the casting. It is unlikely that this was used as a spindle whorl since the off-set piercing would cause the spindle to spin unevenly. It is more likely to be some form of hanging weight, or net weight. Diameter: 33.5mm; inte…

A complete lead-alloy weight dating from the Roman to Post Medieval period (43-1800 AD). In section the weight is broadly trapezoidal and is rectangular in plan.

Lead weight, in the form of a flat solid disc with slightly sloping sides. It measures 32.0mm in diameter and is 6.3mm thick, with a uniform grey/white patination. It appears to be undecorated, apart from a line of four shallow dents on the reverse, although all surfaces are worn with some plough damage, and these dents may be post-depositonal. It weighs 43.1g, which is around 1½ ounces averdepois/avoirdupois. Could be any date from Roman to post-medieval.

A rolled strip of lead of unknown date, 200 BC - AD 1900. It is a tightly rolled strip of sheet lead which is about 1.3mm thick and 11.9mm wide, now forming an approximate cylinder of 9.8mm wide and 7.9mm thick. 6.6g. It was initially thought to be a possible Roman 'curse tablet'. However, similar objects such as DENO-21D323 have been compared to examples of verified curse tablets / rolls (http://curses.csad.ox.ac.uk), and are now thought to be of more modern date, and to have functioined as a weight, or simply a convienient lead ingot or offcut. Many examples on the PAS database are …

A cast lead alloy probable trade weight probably dating from the Medieval period, about AD 1300 - 1500. It is sub-triangular with rounded corners, but is probably intended to be shield shaped (flat top with curved sides meeting at a point at the base). The central area is much thicker than the edge. The centre of the top face may once have been decorated but the design is no longer legible. There is a 3.6mm diameter circular perforation in the centre of the shield. The weight has a well developed white patina. It is 33.1mm long, 25.4mm wide and 6.2mm thick. 26.1g. It was probably inte…

Lead conical weight with a pointed apex and circular base dating from the late medieval to post-medieval period 1400 to 1600AD. The base has a cavity within it that is almost circular in plan. The apex has an integral central circular aperture that is 3 mm in diameter which may have been used with a hook to suspend the weight, but it is more likely to have been used as a standing weight. The base has a cavity within it that is almost circular in plan. Similar weights are illustrated in Egan, G., 1998 The Medieval Household: Daily Living c.1150-c.1450 (Medieval Finds from Excavations in…

Small circular cast cu-alloy weight, probably dating 1700 to 1900AD. The weight is circular with a wide raised rim on the top and an indented centre on the back. There are two pairs of incised concentric circles on the front. The weight was part of a 'nest of weights' and has a small rim around the upper surface in which a small weight would have fitted. The weight itself would have sat in the heavier weight underneath. The upper surface is stamped with two crowns and a castle and no initials. The weight has no parallels on the database although a triple towered castle can be a symbol …

The object has been pierced possibly for a suspension loop. The diameter is 57mm and the weight 105.65g. Bailey, G., 1995 Detector Finds 2 Chelmsford: Greenlight Publishing p.29
