Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A lead alloy and iron weight of probably Post Medieval date, about AD 1500 - 1800. The weight is a circular but faceted shape with at least 14 side faces. The top is doed and the base is flat with a small hole off-centre. A suspension loop projects from the top. It is iron and it extends about a third of the way into the weight. It could therefore have been used as a standing weight or as a suspended weight. Weights of this type are difficult to date closely as they were in use for a long period of time. Though a Post Medieval date is most likely, it could date from the Roman period o…

Object type: MUSKET BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A lead alloy Post Medieval probable musket ball probably dating from about AD 1600 - 1800. It is sub-spherical with two opposing very flat faces, a projecting casting seam, and a tubular projecting hollow sprue. The sprue is 5.4mm long with a hollow tube of 1.9mm diameter in the centre. It is urrounded by a circular groove on the ball. One flat face of ther ball impinges on the groove.
