A complete lead-alloy weight or pendant of uncertain date. The object is triangular with a moulded raised design to the upper surface in the form of the capitalised letter 'T'. The revers is concave and a perforation passes through the top of the 'T' shape into a raised strip at the centre of the reverse. The metal has a pale yellow/white patina. The object is 21.4mm long, 25.1mm wide, 5.9mm thick and weighs 13.8g. While it is possible this is a crude attempt to recreate a Thor's hammer style pendant such undiagnostic objects are difficult to date without a secure stratified context,…

Lead weight. Cast oval flat-sided weight; patinated overall. The mass could suggest this to represent four [slightly overweight] units of 4.43gms, as used in the Viking-Age 'kingdom' of York and Dublin for transactions in silver bullion. However, a small [length 6mm] hollow on the base (as cast) appears to be of heater shield shape. If a fortuitous dimple, the earlier credentials of the object could be upheld. If, however, it is a stamped mark, it may point to official verification of an admittedly uncertain value in post-medieval times. Suggested date: Unknown, Early Medieval to Post-…
