Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A stone spindle whorl probably dating to the later prehistoric to later post medieval date (3000 BC - AD 1700) made of a course sandstone. It is circular in plan and sub-rectangular in cross-section. The object has a regular hour glass shaped pierced hole through the whorl and this is set slightly off centre. The shape of this hole would suggest that it has been achieved by drilling from each side. The object has an even mid-brown patina. Egan (1998) states that spindle whorls were used from the Roman through to the Post-Medieval period and that the cheaper, possibly home-made ceramic…
