Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead possible Roman weight. It is cylindrical, with a central iron core, which would have become a loop, but has now broken. Roman steelyward weights are usually biconical, not cylindrical but this example does have the iron core like the Roman ones, so it is possible it is Roman rather than Post Medieval.

Object type: TOY
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Redcar and Cleveland
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead ship/boat, Post Medieval in date, some sort of toy. The ship is flat on the base so that it sits on a surface. It has its sails unfurled and they are curving to indicate wind from behind the ship. It is a little worn but it appears there is a person sat/stood at the rear of the boat, possibly steering it. This is a toy of some sorts, possibly a version of a shy cock, where the aim would be to knock it over, or possibly just a toy by itself. Lead was used to make toys from the late Medieval period onwards and there is a huge variation.

Cast lead flat Medieval trade weight. It is shield shaped in plan with rounded edges. The front of the weight would have had a fleur-de-lys in relief but this has mostly worn away, leaving only the very tip visible. There are some scratches on both faces, these are most likely plough damage. This is a weight used on scales as there is no sign of an attachment loop.
