Lead possible weight, as kindly identified by the finder. A square offcut of cast sheet of thickness 2.9mm with an incised design on one side: parts of three squares nested within each other are discernible. These are not linked or crossed by other lines, so a Merels or Nine Men's Morris board motif can probably be ruled out. Patinated, and lightly crumpled, producing concave sides to both the object and to the linear design marked on it. If indeed a weight, this may have represented one [underweight] averdepois ounce. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1800. Length (as found): 33.4m…

~~Lead weight, in the form of a flat solid disc with slightly sloping sides. There is an off centre iron deposit that is most likely the remains of a iron wire loop Weights such as this were in use from the Roman to the Post-Medieval Period and has thus been assigned an unknown date.

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…
