Unique ID: PUBLIC-EDCBBF

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Early Medieval lead alloy spindle whorl, 21mm in diameter and 14mm thick and weighs 32.78grams.

The whorl is circular in form and rectangular in cross section. It has one roughly incised cross on its side. Its form, which matches Walton class A2-B1, and its wide aperture of 10-12mm, suggest an early medieval date.
