Treasure Trove objects from Pitgrudy - Weight or crude bead

Treasure Trove objects from Pitgrudy Field 4 found by metal detection and acquired by the Inverness Museum & Art Gallery. A lead object with a domed upper face and a flat lower face. The perforation is very small at 3.5mm suggesting that it is too small to have held a spindle. Its function is unclear and it may have been a weight or even a crude bead. Undateable. Dim: dia: 20mm, wt: 7.6g .© Inverness Museum Inverness Museum Catalogue 2008.036.015
