A complete lead alloy weight of medieval date. The weight is large and plano-convex in section, the front face formed in the shape of a man's head with mouldings representing eyes, nose and mouth. Two rounded protrusions either side of the head are probably intended to be ears. The top of the head does not appear to have any decoration such as hair or a hat. At the apex of the head, which is conical, is an integrally formed suspension loop. The under chin is flat enabling the weight to stand. The reverse is flat, plain and undecorated. There are several dings and scratches caused post-…

Copper alloy weight. A flat-sided weight from a nesting set with an upstanding lightly bevelled rim. The form was probably apt to finishing on a lathe. Two worn stamped marks in the upper surface may represent official inspection, hinting at use in a regulated commercial setting. The mass suggests this represented two ounces. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1700-1900 Diameter: 35.9mm, Height: 8.8mm, Weight: 54.55gms

Lead weight of probable medieval - post medieval date. Discoidal in form; one face exhibits five pinched circular depressions, the other face has six sub-trapezoidal impressions. The edges exhibit several deep nicks, probably caused after deposition. Weight: 212g/ 7.47oz avoirdupois. Probably originally intended as a 7.5oz weight; the slight discrepancy probably caused by post depositional damage.

Copper alloy possible weight fragment. Cast fragment of a plano-convex discoid object, with a straight cut or broken edge, probably representing about one third of an object with an original diameter estimated as c.30mm. Fiercely abraded. The surface appearance closely resembles that of early Roman low denomination coins, and this feature commends an early date. Suggested date: possibly Roman, 43-410 Diameter (as found): 27.2mm, Thickness: 6.8mm, Weight: 10.68gms

Undated lead alloy weight or possibly spindle whorl? 23 mm in diameter, 6 mm thick and weighing 8.74g. The object is roughly circular in form and a shallow D shape in cross section. It has a central circular hole 4 mm in diameter. The form of the object suggests it could be a poorly made spindle whorl which would match Walton Rogers form A1, but the hole is quite small so perhaps a flat wight is a more probable identification?

Cast lead weight in the shape of a truncated square based pyramid. The sides are upright in the lower part then change direction with a distinct carination to slope inwards to the flat top. There is no cast design on the top; various indents appear to be damage rather than a specific design. The reverse is plain. It measures 41.92mm by 42.61mm at the base, is 13.16mm tall and weighs 203.51 grams, just over 7 ounces. Roman and Medieval sub-pyramidal weights are catalogued in Biggs and Withers (2000:27-29) but all the examples have raised cast designs. Plain lead weights were cast local…

Lead possible weight. A cast ball with a possibly drilled hole of diameter 2.5mm - it is now uncertain whether this was carried right through.
