An incomplete cast copper-alloy object of possible Roman date. It is conial in form with a single circumferential groove close to the bottom edge. From the centre of the base extends an integrally cast cylindrical shaft that has been partially flattened and is possibly missing its tip due to old breaks. The shaft has the remains of a crudely incised transverse groove. The entire object has a worn dark green patina with some patches of active copper-alloy corrosive products. It measures 28.14mm in length, 13.50mm in diameter and 11.45g in weight. The precise function of this object r…

Lead Possible Weight. Cast sub-rectangular object. Patinated overall and lightly gouged on both sides. The mass may suggest this to have represented a (slightly underweight) half Roman libra of six unciae, though Roman measures of weight continued in use through the Anglo-Saxon period. Suggested date: Possibly Roman to Early Medieval, 40-800. Length: 42.1mm, Width: 33.8mm, Thickness: 14mm, Weight: 159.41gms

A large steelyard weight of composite construction, in the form of an acorn. The weight comprises two cases and a lead filling. The cases form the cup and fruit of the acorn. The cup is formed from a copper alloy which would have appeared yellow. The fruit is formed from a copper alloy with a high tin content and would have appeared grey. The cup is decorated with many random semi-circular punches. There are also short curving lines around the rim of the cup. The rectangular loop is almost worn through. Part of the lower case is damaged enough to expose the lead packed filling. The we…

Probable Weight. Cast conical weight with a rounded top and an irregular indentation at the base. A central longitudinal hole, probably cast using a former, tapers from 4.6mm to 3.5mm diameter from base to top. Patinated overall. The mass may suggest this object to represent one half of an (underweight) Roman pound or libra. The hole here could, have accommodated a suspension loop, the weight of which might have brought this object to match the Roman libra. Suggested date: Possibly Roman, 40-400. Diameter: 27.9mm, Height: 33.3mm, Weight: 157.52gms.

Lead Weight. Cast sub-rectangular weight. The upper surface bears a probably moulded lipped edge, and a number of small round punch-marks of diameter 1mm are scattered randomly across it. The border has subsequently been enhanced by a thin inscribed line, which continues as an un-ruled X extending corner to corner. Patinated overall. The mass suggests this may be a Roman weight representing eight drachmae (3.41gm) or one uncia (27.3gm), though the Roman system continued in use into Anglo-Saxon times. A weight such as this would be used with a set of balancing scales. Suggested date…

A lead-alloy weight of probable Roman date. The solid-cast weight is biconical, with a rounded bottom point. Two iron spikes projecting from the top point represent the remains of the loop. The object measures 42mm high and up to 46.7mm wide. The weight of 366.1g is just under 13 unciae; with the loop intact it would probably have been closer to 14 unciae.

Lead Weight. Cast conical or plano-convex weight with facetted or impressed sides which confer an irregular pyramidal aspect. Patinated overall, with brown staining, possibly part melted. A small dimple of diameter 3.6mm appears centrally in the base, with a smaller one of diameter 2.7mm off-centre on the top. This was one of two objects of comparable form to be reported from this location, and both were of similar mass (this example weighs 7.26gms, the other is 7.23gms). It may represent two drachmae, or one quarter of a Roman ounce (27.3gms); the Roman system of measurement was in…

Lead Weight. Cast conical weight with facetted or impressed sides which confer an irregular pyramidal aspect. Patinated overall. A tapering round hole of maximum diameter 4mm is set centrally in the base.

It may represent two drachmae, or one quarter of a Roman ounce (27.3gms); the Roman system of measurement was in turn influential upon measurement in the Early to Middle Anglo-Saxon period and later (Biggs and Withers 2…

A possible cast lead alloy weight of possibly Roman date (AD 43-410). The object is sub triangular in plan, with a trapezoidal projection from the centre of the wide end. It has an elongated tear drop-shaped perforation at the tapered end which is filled with iron corrosion. The object is crudely made and appears to have extra blobs of metal pressed onto both faces. The object has a well developed creamy white patina flecked with a creamy brown.A deep gouge cutting into one edge appears to be post depositional damage. This object is cautiously identified as a possible weight which w…
