Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: York
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead alloy Post Medieval brooch. It is oval in plan and appears plain on the front. It is possible it would have had a design on the front which is now gone. On the reverse is the remains of a rectangular loop which would have been used as an attachment method. It has broken so that only the two uprights remain. In the Post Medieval period, these loops were used instead of pins on some forms of brooch.

County: Cheshire East
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead token from the Post-Medieval period. It is sub-circular with uneven edges. There is decoration/writing on both faces which is not central, possibly due to the irregular shape of the token. One face has 12R above GH (or II) in the centre with a border of pellets. The bottom part of this design is off the token. The other face has a shield with a cross inside, again surrounded by pellets. The design on this face is particularly off-centre, the right hand side part is missing.

Circular lead alloy weight probably from the Medieval period.The front of the weight has a circular depression in the centre, in which is an 'I'. The depression is surrounded by 2 incised circles which look as though they have been cast in at the time of making the weight. The 'I' appears to have been added later, by hand. The back of the weight is flat and has 2 lines scratched into it. It is likely these have been made through wear, or from the plough once the weight was in the ground. There are chips on the weight which are also likely to be plough damage. No typology has been m…

Lead alloy weight, probably from the Medieval or Post-Medieval period. It is circular in plan with an uneven rim around the edges on both faces.

Lead token, possibly with religious links. It is circular and has been pierced close to the edge. One side is decorated with an eight petalled flower in relief. The other side has a central seated figure with a smaller figure on either side- possibly a mother/Jesus and child.
