A cast lead spindle whorl, of Walton Rogers form A2, dating from the Early Medieval period, about AD 700 - 850. It has two flat faces of uneven size, and rounded sides. There is a central, circular perforation of internal diameter 7.9mm. The whorl has a smooth light grey patina. It is 20.6mm in diameter and 10mm thick. It weighs 22.04g.
