Record ID: SF9245
Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Pointed-oval lead seal matrix, seen at Ipswich metal-detecting club. A scan of the matrix was subsequently made available. The seal matrix has a curvilinear central motif which is hard to identify. The inscription has no initial mark, and appears to read S'AMICIE SAILE, although the last part of the surname is uncertain; the IL could alternatively be an N and the E could be a C. The inscription can be translated as Seal of Amice Saile; Amice is a woman's name. 13th century.

Object type: DIE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Asymmetric lead die. None of the faces is quite square, and each has a number of dots from one to six, marked by the use of small dots close to the edges of the faces. The dots are arranged on the faces as on modern dice, except that the 2 face has the dots parallel to one edge instead of being set diagonally. The faces are as follows (dimensions are maximums): 6, 7.3 x 6.5 mm; 5, 7.5 x 6.4 mm; 4, 6.5 x 6.5 mm; 3, 6.5 x 6.2 mm; 2, 6 x 5.5 mm; 1, 6 x 6 mm. The opposite faces do not add up to seven as on Roman, some medieval and post-medieval, and modern dice (Winchester die type A); …

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Octagonally facetted conical lead weight, 13.5 mm in diameter at the base and 19 mm tall. Very carefully made, with a small hole running up from a depression in the base to emerge at the top. It weighs 14.36g (0.50 oz), and must have lost some weight through oxidation, so that if it was made as a half-ounce avoirdupois trade weight it would originally have been slightly over-weight (to the disadvantage of the trader). Probably medieval.

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Lead spindle whorl, 28-29 mm in diameter and 12.5 mm tall, with a central circular perforation which tapers from 12 mm in diameter at the base to 10 mm in diameter at the top. The flattish base originally had a wide groove hollowed out around the perforation, but part of this has been scraped away recently, probably by agricultural machinery. The sides are fairly straight and the top is rounded, with two older scrapes across it.

Record ID: SF9095
Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Lead 'spindle whorl', plano-convex in shape. The maximum diameter is 35 mm close to the base, which has a hollowed-out centre with a perforation in the centre. The perforation is circular and tapers from 13 mm in diameter at the base to 9 mm diameter at the top. The upper part of the object is domed and undecorated, and it is 19 mm tall. Although these objects are known as spindle whorls, this one seems far too large and heavy for this; it may be a general-purpose weight. Undatable.

Record ID: SF9097
Object type: WEIGHT
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Tall lead weight, now a little damaged. The base is rectangular, measuring perhaps 12 x 17 mm, and has a damaged downwards projection forming a foot at each corner. In between, the base is slightly hollowed and has a dot at the centre. There are two large flat rectangular sides and two narrower triangular sides, rising to a ridge at the top; there is no suspension loop. It weighs 34.30g (1.21 oz), which is obviously not a round figure in the medieval and post-medieval avoirdupois system, so its date and function should remain tentative.

Record ID: SF9068
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unidentified object. Made from lead, it is roughly circular but all its edges may be broken. It is slightly dished, and on the convex face is a raised circle 13 mm in diameter in which is a relief mark, perhaps a W with a horizontal line through it, or perhaps a pair of Xs. On the concave face, opposite the mark, is a sunken square measuring 3 x 5 mm. It has been suggested that this might be the base of a pewter vessel, and Roman, but no parallel has been found.

Workflow stage: Published Find published
Conical lead weight. The diameter at the base is 28 mm, and there is a hole in the centre which runs 23 mm up into the interior of the weight. The total height of the weight is 46 mm. At the top it flattens as if it may have originally been pierced to provide a suspension loop; there is some dark orange-stained soil in a crevice on the very top which may possibly be from iron corrosion. It weighs 130.4g (4.6 oz) and is very hard to date.

Large biconical lead steelyard weight. Its maximum diameter is 40 mm and the lead part is 47 mm long, with a flattened area at either end. One of the cones is marginally shorter than the other (24.5 mm and 22.5 mm). The addition of a well-preserved U-shaped iron loop at one end brings the total length up to 54 mm. It weighs 288g.

Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Circular lead seal matrix, 31 mm in diameter. At the top is a suspension loop turned at right angles to the plane of the matrix, and looking very much like the loop of a horse-harness pendant. The central motif is a horse-shoe, formed from a U-shaped groove with four deeper blobs on each half. The blobs may all represent nails, or may represent three nails and a calkin on each half. The inscription is well engraved, evenly spaced and easy to read: + SIGILL GERARDI HORSSO. Richard Coates of the University of Sussex has commented that this is probably a surname alluding to a trade, r…

Record ID: SF8997
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An unidentified object made from lead. The base is rectangular (20 x 13 mm) with a rectangular projection at each corner bringing the maximum dimensions up to 23 x 17 mm; it is 10-11 mm thick. The rectangular projections continue up the base on the long edges but not on the short edges, giving a tapering effect. The underside of the base has a series of scratched lines forming a rough ziz-zag of perhaps five points, with a line beneath them; the lines are patinated and look as if they might be original. On the top of the base are two tall cones which bend slightly towards each ot…

Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Lead seal matrix. Pointed oval in shape, and measuring 40 x 26 mm, it has a slightly squashed pierced lug on the reverse. It is very well engraved, although the central motif is hard to identify; perhaps a seed-pod with symmetrical trailing leaves and tendrils, and if so it is likely to represent a pea pod. The inscription around the outside reads + S' CLARICIE. LE NEVMAN (Seal of Clarice the Newman or newcomer). This is a woman's seal; although it seems odd for her to be surnamed the new man rather than the new woman, this must indicate that her surname was hereditary. 13th century.

Record ID: SF8890
Object type: WEIGHT
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Circular lead object, possibly a weight. It is 6 mm thick, with slightly tapering sides; the upper face is 21 mm in diameter and the lower 22-23 mm in diameter. The upper face is decorated with a raised border around two concentric grooves. As it weighs 23.86g, which at 0.84 oz is not a round avoirdupois figure, it is perhaps more likely to be something like a gaming piece rather than a weight. The alternative is that it is a pre-avoirdupois weight.

Square lead plaque, perhaps a weight. It measures 17 x 16.5 mm and is 5 mm thick. One face is decorated with a lattice of unevenly spaced lines. It weighs 13.19g (0.46 oz) so could perhaps have been intended as a half-ounce weight; if so, the decoration could be a portcullis stamp.

Object type: POWDER MEASURE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Lead cap from a powder-charger, now slightly squashed. It is nearly cylindrical, perhaps originally oval in cross-section, with slightly flaring sides. There is a casting seam down the centre of each long side and a small loop at the top in the centre of each short side. These loops served to attach the cap separately to the bandolier (belt) so that they could be removed without danger of loss. The cap would have been part of a powder-charger or powder-holder, a small wooden container holding enough powder for a complete charge for a musket. A series of these holders was hung from…

Shield-shaped lead weight, with a relief fleur-de-lis on one face. The usual lowered border around the motif is absent, and the edges are steeply bevelled. It weighs 216g (7.6 oz) and was probably intended as a half-pound weight.

Two roughly circular discs of lead. One is about 36 mm in diameter and 5 mm thick; it weighs 56.52g (1.99 oz) and may well be a 2 oz weight. The other is about 31 mm in diameter and about 7 mm thick, with a crudely raised border on each face. It weighs 44.16g (1.55 oz) and is less likely to be a weight.
