8.4.5 Window Lead

A small group of 28 lead cames, which joined and supported the glass pieces in the windows, were found during these excavations. The small number recovered reflects their value as scrap metal. The cames have a distinctively H-shaped profile. A small lead-working pit (AHF), contemporary with the construction of the West Range, may have been used for making or reworking lead, for cames or lead water pipes.
