  • Thumbnail image of NLM-C91CFA

Record ID: NLM-C91CFA
Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead spindle whorl. Cast cylindrical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 9.5mm, cf. Walton Rogers form B. One side has a series of eight wedge-shaped cut-outs removed from one face - whether on the master from which it was cast or as a modification of a plain whorl is uncertain, though the former would obviously be easier. This has produced the appearance of a gear wheel or cog, functions to which a soft metal like lead are unsuited. A cruciform or castellated appearance might have been intended, and the form might have been decorative, especially when the whorl was fresh…

Lead offcuts. Two tiny fragments of lead: one is a rectangular billet of cast sheet, of length 17.2mm and thickness 2.6mm, folded and patinated. The other comprises lead sheet or foil, of length 22.7mm, possibly layered, which appears to include finely defined straight edges, overlapping and interleaved in two or more layers, and lightly patinated. The crisp finishing of the latter piece might commend a modern date. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Modern, 43-1950. Combined Weight: 10.70gms

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy possible surgical implement. A cast blade of elongated sub-triangular form, resembling one side of a pair of tweezers, thinned at its broader end and thickened as it narrows, terminating at a small sharp curved rhomboid point. The pointed end might have served as a scoop or pick, though it is now dangerously sharp for this to be attempted. The broader 'tweezer' blade may have had a counterpart, though again, how attached is now unclear. Traces of white metal plating appear on one side of the object. Now bent or curled and approaching an S shape in profile. Suggested date: …

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. A small irregular fragment from an object with a flat circumferential band at one end: if continued this might have been of c.20mm diameter. Below this, the object tapers, is bent outwards, and where edges appear - most clearly at its broader end with the band around it - they are ragged.

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. A small concavo-convex strip fragment, possibly from a cylindrical object, which is broken raggedly on all its edges and which is also lightly bent, a pattern of damage usually to be associated with exploded munitions. The form of this object does not, however, resemble that of objects identified as shrapnel shards. Similar effects might be expected in the case of the sudden failure of machinery or engine components. The outer surface, however, bears a patina usually associated with objects of greater age. Suggested date: Unknown, Medieval to …

Copper alloy rod. Cast rod with an oblique or slipped point at one end, where the section is rounded, and of D-section for the rest of its length; bent sharply towards the other end. This resembles a needle lacking the perforation at its flattened end and a sharpened point at the other, and hence unfinished. Suggested date: Unknown, Medieval to Post-Medieval, 1350-1650.

Lead metalworking debris. A small thick lump of poured lead melt which has set on a flat and finely sanded surface. Patinated.
