Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead possible Roman weight. It is cylindrical, with a central iron core, which would have become a loop, but has now broken. Roman steelyward weights are usually biconical, not cylindrical but this example does have the iron core like the Roman ones, so it is possible it is Roman rather than Post Medieval.

Cast lead flat Medieval trade weight. It is shield shaped in plan with rounded edges. The front of the weight would have had a fleur-de-lys in relief but this has mostly worn away, leaving only the very tip visible. There are some scratches on both faces, these are most likely plough damage. This is a weight used on scales as there is no sign of an attachment loop.

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…

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…

Early Medieval lead weight, Viking in style; sub-circular in plan, and flat. It has glass set into the top face in a sub-circle. The glass is a light blue colour (although this may be due to deterioration) and has cracked, with a small fragment missing. The edges of the weight are rounded and the sides and bottom are plain and smooth with no marks or decoration. 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.

Lead Post Medieval weight. It is sub-rectangular in plan with the top end narrowing and being rounded and having a small circular perforation, possibly for hanging or attachment. The front face has an X scratched into it above a rectangle split into four uneven sections. The edges of the weight are uneven as are the surfaces. This appears to have been made quite simply and decorated after it has been cast.

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.
