A perforated conical lead weight of uncertain date, from the Roman to post-medieval period, AD 43 - 1900. The weight is sub-conical in shape with a circular base, tapering sides and a tilted domed top. There is a sub0-circular perforation from the apex, slightly curved to the centre of the base. The base of the weight has a ring shaped concavity probably the result of the cooling lead shrinking. The surface of the weight is uneven and it has a well developed white patina. The weight measures 20mm tall, 17.4mm diameter and 75.9g. This mass does not appears to correspond with any known s…

Undated lead alloy, probable weight, 28mm in diameter, 9mm thick with a weight of 52.57grams. The object is circular in form and rectangular in cross section. It has rounded edges and a slight raised lip on both sides. On one side it has also a distinct sub rectangular depression with two linear parallel depressions running along its central area. This may suggest that it had something inlaid into it? or perhaps it is later damage.

A complete lead-alloy weight of probable medieval to Post-Medieval date, 1200 - 1800. The object is tubular with a flat top and base. A central perforation runs through the object and all surfaces appear undecorated. The metal has a mid-grey patina and is worn. The object is 27.9mm long, 21mm in diameter and weighs 55.9g. 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 diffi…

Lead possible weight. Cast plano-convex weight with a central moulded aperture of diameter 4.7mm. Shrinkage on the flat surface may suggest this was cast in an open mould. Patinated. The hole might have been intended for stringing as a line weight, though there is no marking to suggest this - the finder kindly notes this was found near other net sinkers close to the old course of the River Don. For a game piece, a class of early medieval object also of this form, it might accommodate a wooden peg for use with a holed game board such as Hnafetafl. The mass might suggest this to represe…

Lead weight. Cast trapezoid weight with a large oval sunken panel on one side; patinated. The mass may suggest this to have represented one [underweight] averdepois ounce. It was possibly formerly equipped with an insert supplying the deficit, though the form of this object is distinct from that of those early medieval weights with inserted objects, which are typically discoid. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1700. Length: 27mm, Width: 27mm, Thickness: 4.9mm, Weight: 25.17gms

Lead weight. Cast plano-convex weight, with a central dimple on its flat side suggesting shrinkage after casting in an open mould. Patinated, abraded and probably chipped. The mass does not immediately suggest correspondence with any particular system. Though a little over one quarter mark [62.2gms], a measure used for silver and for bread and a possible value noted for a single discoid weight from medieval London (Egan 1998, tables 14-15, fig. 229), the abraded condition and irregular form leave the loss of an uncertain amount of fabric possible. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Post…

Lead weight. Cast trapezoid flat-sided weight with an approximately central pierced hole of diameter 4.9mm; possibly knife trimmed, patinated, and with light adventitious scratches. The mass may suggest this to have represented one [underweight] quarter pound averdepois. The hole may have been to permit suspended storage, or possibly use as a steelyard poise.

A Post Medieval cast copper alloy trade weight from the reign of James I (AD 1603 - 1625) or James II (AD 1685 - 1688). The weight is circular and flat with no rim. The front has a central dimple and the back has file marks across it. It is stamped with a Crowned I (for James I or II) at 6 o'clock and an ewer (for the founders company) at 11 o'clock. There may have been sword stamped at 1 o'clock, this area is now very worn. It is 13.7mm in diameter and 3.2mm thick. It weighs 2.93gm. It was probably originally an eighth (0.125oz) of an ounce (two drams) with some weight lost to corrosion.

A lead artefact, probably a standing weight of post-Medieval date, AD 1500 - 1800. It is in the form of a hexagonal cone with a blunt, rounded apex and a flat base with a small, circular depression in the centre. Two opposing faces are stamped, just above the base, with small figures giving a possible date of 1608. One stamp is the opposite way up to the other. Higher up the dated faces is a further impressed design, of either a heart or a spade symbol or a leaf. This symbol is also marked on two other faces. It too appears both ways up. The remaining two faces are plain. The artefact…

A cast lead weight of Medieval date, about AD 1300 - 1500. It is shield shaped, with rounded corners. The upper surface is slightly convex and the underside concave. The upper surface is decorated with a single, narrow groove mirroring the shape of the weight, forming a narrow border, within which are traces of a fleur-de-lys design in low relief. There is also a deep, U shaped groove in the centre of the upper edge, resulting in the weight becoming heart shaped. Unusually for a weight it has been penetrated,almost in the centre, by a ferrous rivet, or length of thick wire, suggesting …
