Lead Medieval papal bulla, of Calixtus II (1119-24). Obverse; CAL/XTVS/[PP II] Reverse; [S]PA/ SP[E]; Worn heads of SS Peter and Paul facing each other Tim Pestell kindly added this information on the bulla 'Calixtus II, elected 2nd February 1119, consecrated 9th Feb and who died on 14th December 1124 (the lettering on Calixtus III's bulla is slightly different). As such this is an important bulla because it is one of the earliest found in Britain.

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. The glass appears to be a fragment cut from a bracelet or bead. It is light blue with strands of red and white running through. The rest of the weight is plain and undecorated. On the sides and base are some small grooves, probably caused by the plough whilst in the ground. 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…

Susan Youngs has seen an image of this item and kindly commented with some background information on this object type; 'It was usual for weights like this to have offcuts of some pretty but not valuable metalwork set in t…

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.

Flat circular lead weight. It has two central circular perforations and is slightly bent out of shape. Despite looking like a button, these weights were and are used to weigh down the hems of curtains, and perhaps also skirts. They seem to come into use perhaps in the eighteenth century, and are still available to buy today.
