Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy unidentified object. A cast Y-shaped object with branched arms narrower than the trapezoid shank or stem whence they protrude, whose other end is probably broken. An identification as the rowel box of a spur was considered, and the gap between the arms may have been enlarged by wear, but there is no visible provision for attachment of the putative rowel. Abraded. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Medieval, 43-1500. Length: 29.8mm, Width: 15.9mm, Thickness: 7.6mm, Weight: 9.60gms

A complete lead-alloy weight of uncertain date. The object is cylindrical with a circular plan and a rectangular cross-section. The circular faces are both concave. All surfaces appear undecorated. The metal is white/brown in colour and is worn. The weight is 22.2mm in diameter, 14.7mm thick and weighs 49.0g.

Copper alloy mount. An E-shaped sheet metal plate with a central U-shaped tab projecting from one long side, flanked by narrower straight-sided and round-ended projections, each with a drilled hole of diameter 1.2mm at its end. These members also have rounded lower ends defined by light nicks. Six short vertical ribs appear along the apex of the larger tab, rising from a horizontal line. These details do not appear on the reverse, so the object is unlikely to have been pressed or stamped.

A copper-alloy Jetton of Medieval or Post-Medieval date. Obverse shows an unclear shield. Obverse legend is mostly illegible but is probably fictitious: [...]E[...]V[...]. A rose with central pellet sits within the legend at the left hand corner of the shield. The reverse shows an unclear tressure, probably containing an imperial orb surmounted by a cross. This would make it an Anonymous Nuremberg stock Jetton dating c.AD 1500-1525 (Mitchiner, M. 1988 pp.355-358, nos.897, 992-997). This would mean that the die axis is 8 o'clock.

Lead conical spindle whorl of uncertain date from the Roman to the modern period (c. 43 - 1800 AD). The object has a flat bottom and sloping sides, with a central, circular perforation. The shape is unevenly executed. The bottom of the object is pitted. The object has a white patina. It is 25.33mm in diameter, 14.37mm in thickness and weighs 32.74g. The diameter of the central perforation is 10.56mm. Lead spindle whorls are often difficult to date without archaeological context. The example is of a form that was used from the Roman period to the modern day and it is thus not possible…

Lead possible ingot. A small oval plano-convex casting with hollows and a square pit in its upper side as cast, probably in an open mould or a small hollow. The pit on the flat side might show where a nail shank has been used to help extract the object. The convex surface bears the impressions of a fine sand, which may hint at production in the course of more extensive works using a sand bed for casting. Patinated. The mass might alternatively permit this object to have served as a weight, representing 10 units of 4.43gms, respecting the favoured system of measurement for silver bullio…

A lead weight, probably a steelyard weight. The weight is an elongated pyramid with a truncated apex. There is pierced hole running from the apex to the base where it emerges slightly off- centre. The base ia sub- angular and slightly dished around a collar encircling the hole. The dishing suggests this was cast in an open mould, point downwards. THe collar indicates that the lead was still fairly soft when the hole was made. The weight is equivalent to approximately 2.5 ounces.

A copper alloy artefact; a loop from a fragmentary larger object, of uncertain date, AD 43 - 1700. It is possibly a fragment of a hook from a sword belt fitting of post-medieval date, about AD 1500 - 1700. It consists of a short length of D-sectioned copper alloy, curved at one end into a loop where it is closed by a projecting transverse ridge on the inside of the loop. The other end curves in the opposite direction to the loop, but most of the remaining portion of the artefact has broken away at this point and is now missing.

Copper alloy possible mount fragment. A cast plano-convex fragment with curvilinear interlaced features on one side, flat on the other.

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Rotherham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead possible weight of unknown date, Roman to Post Medieval, AD 43 - 1800. It is a cuboid of solid lead. One end is concave, and the edges project slightly. The sides are all flat and smooth. The other end is rough and is probably a break, now patinated. The object has a regular grey patina. There is no visible decoration, though natural imperfections in the metal have left slight marks on the surface. It is 16mm long, 12mm wide and 11mm thick. 21g. This object could have been used as a weight, but it appears to be incomplete. It could also be the casting well and runner from metal…

Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Rotherham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy unidentified object of uncertain date. It is a crescent shaped plate of ovoid cross-section, but is rough and possibly unfinished or fire damaged. Projecting from the middle of the concave edge is a stem which is sub-D-shaped in cross-section. It is unclear whether the end is broken or not. The object is 40mm long, 30mm wide and 10mm thick. 26g. It has a pitted grey green patina. The shape is suggestive of Roman crescentic linch pin terminals, but also Post Medieval tap handles. It could also be a foot from a vessel. The damage to this object makes it difficult to date …

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete lead weight of uncertain date. The object is cylindrical and stands upright, though slightly angled. The metal has a mid-yellow/white patina and is worn. The object is 9.3mm tall, 9.9mm in diameter and weighs 6.4g. Weights of a similar form have been identified from Early-Medieval contexts at Cottam, East Riding of Yorkshire. Due to the lack of secure context for the current example dating it and other examples of this general type is problematic, and their use is invariably uncertain. This function is also not certain and the object may have served another purpose.

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete lead-alloy weight of uncertain date. The object is circular with a flat top and base and a central perforation running through it. All surfaces appear undecorated and are worn. The metal has a mid-grey/brown patina. The object is 27.8mm in diameter, 8.6mm thick and weighs 39.9g. The perforation is 9.9mm in diameter. The term 'weight' is used here in its broadest sense to include uses that do not involve weighing (e.g. holding-down, tensioning, etc.). They were commonly used from the Iron Age through to the post-medieval period and are difficult to date with any certainty wi…
