County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead alloy and copper alloy toy animal. The solid cast body and upper legs of a draught horse naturalistically modelled at a scale of c.1:70 or 25mm, with an embedded rod of drawn copper alloy wire. The end of the rod projects from one side of the model, while a straight and angled length of 14mm on the other side is set diagonally across the body, suggesting it linked the horse with a separate cart or vehicle. A breast band appears, but no sign of saddle furniture, so a farm animal may be intended. Patinated; the head and lower legs of the horse are lost. William Britains introduced a…

A lead alloy possible token or gaming piece of later medieval to post-medieval date, circa (AD 1400-1800). The token is sub-circular in plan.

The reverse face is flat and un-decorated. The token has a cream coloured patina across all surfaces. Lead tokens had a wide variety of potential uses such as use as tallies, gaming pieces, tickets, weights, etc. and are believed to have been locally produced; they are therefore diffi…

County: Lincolnshire

Lead alloy possible weight. A small trapezoid flat-sided billet, probably cut from cast sheet. Patinated. Kindly suggested to be lead by the finder but probably alloyed, and hence less flexible than it might otherwise be. The mass might hint at this representing two Roman drams of 1.77gms, or perhaps one eighth of an averdepois ounce - in the latter case, underweight. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Post-Medieval, 43-1800 Length: 11.9mm, Width: 10.4mm, Thickness: 2.9mm, Weight: 3.28gms

An assemblage of 54 lead musket balls of post medieval date, c. AD 1600-1700. The balls are all largely spherical in shape, although some have clear casting marks or slightly flattened areas. None appear to have been fired. They are formed of lead and are now pale grey and powdery. The balls average approximately 39g each, and are on average approximately 2.5mm in diameter. They are all approximately 12 bore shot, and were found across an area of 6 x 3m. The size and shape of the balls strongly suggests a military usage, as opposed to recreational hunting.
