Copper alloy possible weight. Cast globular to plano-convex rounded lump, with a flat side probably produced by a robust hammer strike. The convex face is deeply gouged, though this is thought to have distorted rather than removed its fabric. The mass exactly equates to three units of 4.07gms, as used in Viking Age Denmark for transactions of silver bullion. Both the Danish and Norse systems were duodecimal, and so uneven numbers of units appear less frequently than the even, though as one half of an ora/ore [a contemporary and underweight ounce] a value of three units should not be un…

Lead possible weight. Small cylindrical weight, probably cast in an open mould, with a ridged or uneven base [as cast; this was probably the top when in use]. Patinated. The surface condition argues some age for this object. Discoid weights from London include a cluster of round weights of just over 20gms mass, though these are not ascribed to any particular system of measurement (Egan 1998, table 15 and fig. 229). An object of this form might also be used as a playing piece for an early medieval board game. Suggested date: Unknown, Early Medieval to Medieval, 850-1500. Diameter: 18.6…

A circular copper-alloy trade weight dating to the late 18th century to the early 19th century. Possibly could be an apothecaries weight. The top of the weight has a raised border which is stepped on the inner circumference. Within this border is a circular roped design that frames an emblem which is now illegible, although there appears to be a head of a raven at the top of the emblem. The underside of the weight is flat and also has a border around the edge. Within this border is a circular roped design that has a knot at the bottom. Within this design is a stylized "M". The weigh…

A crudely cast lead artefact, possibly a weight of possibly Medieval to post-Medieval date, about AD 1150 - AD 1600. It is broadly octangonal in plan, with a uneven base, a projecting lump preventing it sitting flat. The sides are angled, so the upper face is smaller than the base. The upper face has a deep angular depression in the top making it concave. The object has rough sides and a thin grey patina. It is 22.9mm in diameter and 16.6mm high. It weighs 45.69gm. Compare KENT-DC651B.

A cast lead pendant weight, perhaps a net weight of probable Medieval date, about AD 1200 - 1500. It is rectangular in section and tapers to a point at one end. At the other end is a crude integral suspension loop with an oval perforation, the the weight tapers in thickness to a wide point. A similar object, but with more design features than this crude example, is illustrated on page 311 of Medieval Households where it is suggested to be a net weight, plumb bob or ship's sounding weight. There are also numerous examples on the database, usually suggested to be net weights for fishing …

Iron and copper alloy possible weight. A possibly cast iron object of a solid flat-based bowl-shaped form with relicts of thin [0.3mm] copper alloy sheathing on its flat base.
