Scale pan set in copper alloy based on fragments of an arm from Cromwell, Nottinghamshire (DENO 0619F7), a pivot from Northope, Lincolnshire (NLM 6A2893), and a suspension arm and pans based on originals from York and St Peter’s Street, Northampton.
Scales were a common commercial tool and would have been an important part of any exchange whether using a monetary system or a bullion system such as the one that existed in Viking-occupied areas of England.
