Lead bun-shaped weight with a copper alloy plate on the flat face. Possibly Early Medieval in date, photograph was taken at a club and so detail is not clearly visible. The copper plate appears to have a head in the centre with writing around, all engraved into the surface.

Rectangular lead weight, Post Medieval in date. It is not quite a rectangle, one end being narrower. It has a grooved pattern on the front, probably meant to represent a scallop. It is possible this was used as a trade weight and that the scallop symbolises a certain weight.

Lead Roman steelyard weight. It is bi-conical in shape with a rounded iron attachment loop set in the top. The weight is not symmetrical and the surface is uneven, possibly through being poorly made, or possibly from damage.

Lead shield shaped Medieval trade weight. It has a raised design on the front face of a fleur-de-lis, which has been slightly blundered. There is a lowered border around the edge. The reverse is flat and plain. This type of weight would have been used by merchants at fairs, markets or shops to weigh goods. Mostly they employed the avoirdupois system, which was used from AD 1390 in England. Lead shield-shaped weights of various qualities of workmanship and numerous designs have been in use over a long period of time. Therefore due to the lack of any further contextual evidence it…

Large shield shaped lead weight, late Medieval- Post-Medieval in date. It is most likely to be a trade weight. It has decoration in relief on the front and is flat on the reverse. The decoration consists of a raised shield shape leaving a lower border. In this there is a central fleur-de-lis with a design above which is slightly unclear but could be a cross with longer horizontal arms than vertical ones. It was too heavy for my scales whcih go up to 200g.

Cast lead weight from the Medieval- Post Medieval periods. It is tear-drop shaped and the extended end has a circular cross section. There are some scratches on the surface, probably plough damage. It weighed more than 200g and so my scales could not weigh it. Generic weights such as this are difficult to date precisely when found as stray finds.

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.

Lead Post Medieval fabric weight. Sub-circular with two circular perforations in the centre. These weights were (and are) used to weigh down the hems of curtains, and perhaps also skirts. They seem to have come into use perhaps in the eighteenth century, and are still available to buy today.

Lead weight, possibly Roman in date. It is conical in shape with a rounded top and slightly irregular. The flat edge is the upper face and this has a central depression- possibly where an attachment loop once was. The surface is irregular all over due either to corrosion or poor casting of the weight. It was too heavy for my scales which go up to 200g. It has a length/height of 43.36mm and a diameter of 41.70mm.
