Lead cylinder, probably a weight of medieval to post-medieval date (c. 1200 - 1750 AD). The object is long and cylindrical with widened, ridged ends. The object has a matt cream-coloured patina. It is 48.94mm in length, 14.09mm at maximum width and 12.94mm at maximum thickness. It weighs 41.22g. Although it is not hollow, this object bears reminiscence to fishing or line weights of post-medieval date and may have fulfilled a similar function. It certainly would have been easy to secure a line around it like a bobbin. A similar example recorded on the database is: SWYOR-ABB5F4. See als…

A complete copper-alloy stacking trade weight of Post-Medieval date, c.AD 1500 - 1800. The weight is circular in plan with sides which taper from the top to the base giving a sub-trapezoidal profile. The object is worn rendering any detail illegible though a circular recess at the centre of the inside base can be seen. The metal has a mid-brown patina and is worn. The weight is 24.4mm in diameter, 9.8mm tall, 2.4mm thick and weighs 12.9g. This is likely to be a single example from a nested set of differing sizes and weights which were used to weigh gold and silver in the form of coin…

Lead alloy weight of 63.6g (2.25oz) with iron suspension loop. The loop, which has been bent, has an internal diameter of 6.5mm and is 5.9mm thick, The weight itself is cast around this loop and comprises an irregular rounded cylinder 23.7mm high, varying in diameter from 21.6 to 27.8mm, likely in part due to post-depositional crushing and distortion. Possibly a Roman steelyard weight, circa 1st - 4th century AD.

A complete lead-alloy weight of uncertain date. The object is conical with a flat base and top and an off centre perforation to one end. All surfaces appear undecorated. The metal has a mid-grey patina and is worn. The object is 13.3mm tall, 12mm in diameter, and weighs 12.7g. The perforation is 2.6mm 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 without suppor…

A complete lead-alloy weight of uncertain date. The weight is cylindrical in form, and narrows towards each terminal. An irregular longitudinal overlap of metal has been crudely smoothed suggesting the object was constructed from a single sheet rolled over onto itself with a circular gap in the centre. The metal has a mid-brown patina and is worn. The weight is 30.4mm long, 16.3mm in widest diameter and weighs 28.4g. According to Helen Geake, 'Perforated weights of other shapes (e.g. long hollow cylinders, or thin rods with a perforation at one end) are very imperfectly understood at…

Lead weight. Cast oval weight of an oblique plano-convex profile with a tapered aperture of diameter 4.4-6.2mm; patinated. Shrinkage on the broader flat face suggests it was cast in an open mould. The form may originally have been circular, the current shape arising from adventitious damage, as is probably a deep cut on one side. The hole is rather small to admit a spindle, so the object may have served as a line weight. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1500. Diameter (long axis): 23.0mm, Thickness: 9.1mm, Weight: 15.78gms

Post medieval lead weight dating to the period c. AD 1603 - 1625. Discoidal; the upper face stamped with four symbols: The arms of the City of Norwich (A castle keep over a lion facing left) Crowned initials IR The letter A A circle - probably indicating a 1oz weight. Weight: 25.5g / 393.5251 grains / 0.89g avoirdupois, so slightly under 1oz, but it exhibits some edge damage and is somewhat worn, hence the possible reduction in weight.

A cast lead alloy weight of conical form and of medieval date c. 1000- 1600 AD. The cone has an integral suspension loop and minor vertical ridges and a slanted base. The surface has oxidised to a pale cream/white coating. See a similar weight at - WILT-BF0671 and BERK-85E62E. This form of weight was in use throughout the medieval and into the early post-medieval period. It could either be hung from a balance or used as a standing weight.

A shield shaped lead weight, similar to examples (p. 41-45) in Biggs and Withers' catalogue of the David Rogers collection (2000). The object is of an overall rounded oval shape, with a divide about 2/3rds along the object. The smaller third is pierced and appears to have two distinct pellets. The larger third has a shield shaped area that is curved and raised, so that it is sunken at the border and bulging in the centre. Any design that was originally in place has since been destroyed by wear or weathering.

A sub-circular lead weight of 38.6mm diameter and 9.4mm thickness. The object weighs 88.62g (3.13oz). This artefact has a roughly 'D' shaped cross-section being flatter on the reverse and slightly domed on the decorated upper surface. The decorative surface is unclear but seems to consist of a cross, the four quarters between the arms being recessed below the surface of the arms and outer circular border. Close observation reveals that a possible crescent, or possibly a damaged pellet, is present within one of the recessed quarters. A pellet or possibly a line of three pellets is prese…

Lead possible weight. Cast sub-rectangular weight with one rounded and thicker end, and with a sunken panel apparently formed by stamping with a die or coin of 26mm diameter which appears to have had a plain perimeter of width 3.5mm - in the manner of the 'cartwheel' coinage of 1797, though that issue did not include coins of this size. Both ends of the object also bear multiple crescentic and triangular stamp or bite marks, perhaps more likely the latter, which are carried over onto the underside at the straight end of the object. Lightly patinated. The mass might suggest this to repr…
