SPINDLE WHORL

Unique ID: SUR-A07D0D

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

An undecorated lead spindle whorl with a hole of 7.3mm diameter and an irregular conical profile with a hemispherical upper and a flat lower side. The profile compares favourably to Walton Rogers form A1-A2, dating to AD 700-1100.

Notes:

Simple lead spindle whorls and weights were cast locally from the Roman period to the Post Medieval Period, therefore making them hard to date precisely.
