Object type: CLOTH SEAL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead cloth seal, 16-17th century in date. It is part of a two disc cloth seal with the two discs being pressed together. They are broken on all edges, originally having been circular in plan. The front disc has a stamped design in the form of a hanging sheep. There is a legend around the outside although most is now missing it reads ...ED ....ROSS* A hanging sheep or the golden fleece is the symbol for Leeds and it seems likely that this is a seal from a company/ person involved in the cloth trade in Leeds. Possibly someone named Ross.

Early Medieval lead weight, Viking in style, sub-circular in plan and domed. It has glass set into the centre of the top face in a sub-rectangular shape.

There is a lead weight set with a glass bangle fragment from Dumbarton Rock, Strathclyde where the glass is the usual blue and white of Irish bangles. The red i…

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Early Medieval, Viking, lead weight. It is circular in plan and flat with a copper alloy plate set on the top face. The copper alloy setting looks like a gilt bronze Irish disc, possibly a stud with the lug removed. In the centre of this is a small circular red stone or perhaps glass. This glass forms the centre of the decoration with three swirls, almost peltate in design coming from the centre. There is then a raised outer rim. In the spaces between are small grooved lines.

Lead cloth seal, 17th century in date. It is a four-piece seal, mostly complete. Only two faces retain the stamps, those on the large circles (the inner discs). The connecting strip is still attached at the end, as it was folded in half. The stamps consist of the arms of Britain on one face, slightly off-struck. On the other side is 'CAR/SAY/166...'. This refers to the fact it was a seal on kersey cloth, this was made in various places in England, Yorkshire being one of those. Unfotunately the last year of this seals date is missing. These types of seal usually date from the 16…

Circular lead weight from the Post Medieval period. It is circular in plan and flat. It has a central circular hole and then four circular holes around it, forming an X-shape if they were joined up. On the front the central hole had a groved circle around it which cuts through the four outer circles. In between each of the outer circles are two short grooved lines, radiating from the centre, forming a cross. On the reverse there are some traces of these lines but not to the same degree as on the front.
