Description: A beehive-shaped lead weight with a central axial hole and two embedded transverse iron pins..

Description: A flat ring-shaped cast lead weight with moulded decoration on one side only.

The dating of lead objects of this general type is problematic, and their use is invariably uncertain. 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 probably mostly used as net weights, loom weights, etc., but some of those that are ring-shaped might have served as spindle whorls.
