Three cast tubular cast lead, fishing or net weights probably of Post-Medieval date, AD1700 - 1900. The casting seams along the sides have been trimmed. They were probably used as fishing weights or more likely net weights for catching game. In the "Finds Recording Guide", Geake (2001, p66) points out that: "The function of lead weights would have varied, from spindle-whorls to fishing weights to trade weights." She adds that spindle whorls should ideally be circular and must have a central perforation (ibid.). Probably an early Post Medieval cast lead alloy, or lead, biface weight or possibly token.

They are in the form of hollow cylinders, thicker in the centre and tapering towards the ends (barrel shaped). Compare KENT-ADB2C7 which cites Detector Finds 2, Gordon Bailey, Greenlight Publishing 1993, page 29-34 No. One face is decorated with an impressed fleur de lys & on the other a raised long cross with raised single pellets in each angle and a damaged boss at the centre of the cross.

They are oval in plan, an elongated hexagon in section and has a circular hole running through their length. Late Early Medieval to early post medieval cast lead alloy, or lead, biconical weight. The abraded decoration consists of crude rays with raised dots between them on one side and on the other side there is no visible decoration.

Wastling (2009) in Evans and Loveluck, (Life and Economy at Early Medieval Flixborough, Volume 2), discusses net weights and notes that their form changes very little through time, making them…

The length is 37mm, the width is 19mm and the combined weight 137.78g.

The decoration derives from medieval long cross coins but the impressed fleur is more suggestive of the Post Medieval period, though it may indicate reuse. The face features an inscription in the outer border with possibly a floral or fleur-de-lys design in an inner circular border in the centre.

The heaviness of the object suggests it is a weight rather than a token even though its decoration is token like. There is an inscription around the outer border divided by a cross.

The inscription reads S' RADVLFI BRVH with a space-filler at the end which looks like a sideways S.

BRVH might perhaps be Brough (the Dictionary of English Surnames has a 13th-century spelling of Bruggh). There is a tear in the metal on the reverse which m… The spindle whorl is sub circular in shape, and lentoid in section.Both faces have been decorated with raised decoration of a series of lines. The spindle whorl is sub circular in shape, and lentoid in section.The central perforation has an approximate internal diameter of 9mm. Spindle whorls, as an artefact type, can be hard to date accurately as they remained in use for a long period of time, however lead alloy spindle whorls of this type are normally attributed to the medieval period.
