Lead weight. Cast conical weight with a central probably drilled aperture of diameter 3.5mm. The object was cast in an open mould, as is suggested by shrinkage lines on its base. Lightly patinated. The hole might indicate provision for suspension as a steelyard weight, a category of object to which a Roman date is conventionally applied. These usually bear traces of a ferrous metal loop, here absent. The mass does not immediately suggest close correspondence with any system of Roman or later date were use as a standing weight envisaged. The good surface condition might also point to a …

A complete cast lead pan weight, circular in plan and rectangular in profile with VIII stamped on the front face. It weighs 226g, which is just less than eight Averdupois ounces. The style of the letters suggests cAD 1600 - 1800. It is 47.25mm in diameter, c14.5mm thick, though this varies a little.The lead appears to have been battered a little out of shape, perhaps while in the ground, but there is also evidence that an edge may have been taken off, while there are also one or two small accretions of lead which suggest additions.

Lead possible weight. An oval cut from thin cast sheet or foil; patinated. Suggested date: Unknown, roman to Post-Medieval, 43-1800. The mass is close to one drachma of 3.41gms, one of the lowest values in the Roman system of mensuration. However, Roman material is notably scarce from the vicinity, so this must detract from the likelihood of such a use. Diameter (long axis): 20mm, Thickness: 1mm, Weight: 3.36gms

Lead possible weight. A thin flat-sided oval-ended billet with knife-cut edges; patinated. The mass may suggest this to represent eight units of 4.07gmns, as used in Viking Age Scandinavia for transactions in silver bullion. Numerous plain lead weights thought to respect this or allied systems have been reported, and their Early Medieval date has been advanced by Dave Haldenby and Jane Kershaw with reference to a large assemblage from Cottam, East Riding of Yorkshire. There, such weights were either rectangular or discoid, so this form combines these formal characteristics in an object…
