Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Stockton-on-Tees

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.

Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead Medieval seal matrix, c.1200- 1400. It was originally vesica shaped but has broken almost in half. It is also bent so that the edges now curve slightly downwards. The central motif appears to be either a corn ear or another plant. The inscription reads 'S'INCH....' So it is a person seal, unfortunately not enough of the legend can be made out to work out who owned it. On the reverse, near to the top is a small rounded loop, now filled with mud.
