Lead bale seal
White Springs General Site Finds
This is likely to be half of a lead bale seal. It has a round face and no visible markings; the square extension at the top is broken, but would have connected to another similar-sized face if the object was whole. Bale seals were used by European merchants to mark parcels of fabric and other similar materials. Its presence at White Springs may mean that whole bales of cloth were imported to the site.
