Record ID: HESH-4D6BF8
Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Ground stone spindle whorl of probable later prehistoric to later post medieval date (3000 BC - 1500 AD). The spindle whorl is sub-circular in plan, it measures 25.4mm diameter, and is 9.8mm thick. There is a regular slightly 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 hole measures 4.4mm in diameter. The whorl weighs 9.26 grams. The whorl is undecorated and the edges are worn and slightly abraded. The outer edge is slightly bevelled, although this i…

Two pierced stone water worn pebbles of unknown date or function. The two pebbles are of differing sizes but each have a single pierced hole which is perforated diagonally from one edge to the other. Both holes differ in size and do not seem to be drilled, in that there profile does not conform to the usual (egg-timer) shape. There also seems to be little wear on the holes. It has been suggested by the finder that they may be beads and this is a possibility, the discovery of them together also increases the likelihood of this idea. Pebble 1 measures 22.7mm length, 13.8mm width, is 1…

Cast copper alloy artefact or unknown date and function. It is likely that this artefact dates from the Roman period (and was found in association with a group of coins dating to the late Roman period 250-410 AD). The artefact is cast in one piece and is in the shape of a broad circular disc with two small rounded lug shaped knops which extend from opposite edges. The disc itself is relatively flat and sub-rectangular in cross section. The two knops are lentoid (sub-oval) in cross section and circular in profile. The upper face of the disc has been decorated with a series of cast radia…

Two pieces of copper alloy industrial waste or slag, of probable Medieval dating (11th to 15th Century). 1: measures 53.9mm in length, 29.9mm wide and 10.7mm thick. It weighs 32.2 grams. 2: measures 31.0mm in length, 22.6mm wide and 25.7mm thick. It weighs 13.7 grams. Together both pieces weigh 45.9 grams. Both pieces are consistent with the waste produced as part of the copper smelting process, which did not significantly change from the Bronze Age through the Late Medieval period. However these fragments are more likely to be Medieval in date, as more Medieva…

An incomplete cast lead alloy (or possibley copper alloy with high tin content) artefact, of unknown post Roman date (50 - 1800AD). The object is most probably the sprue / casrting well from the vent of a mould and theerfore attributed to casting waste / casting by-product. The object is shaped like a four sided pyramid with rounded edges. It is undecorated and light grey in colour. It has a smooth well formed patina except on some of the faces where abrasion has occured. At the top of the pyramid is a projecting cylindrical stump, this is where the runner / jet of the casting was …

It is possible due to the nature of the site that these are Roman in date although due to the nature of the artefact type and its longevity it is very difficult to date specifically. A broad date range of 50 AD - 1850 is suggested. The hook is a mid brown orange colour with encrusted and laminating surfaces. The hook measur…

A complete copper alloy rod of uncertain date, possibly Roman or Medieval in date. The artefact has a circular cross section at the end with the perforation and a square cross section at the other end. The perforation is just below the tip.

A cast copper alloy ring of unknown date, most probably later prehistoric – Roman (300 BC- 400AD).

Fragment of a copper alloy disc with a central hole. Underneath the artefact is flat until near the central hole where it tapers in. The top slopes gently up towards the central hole before tapering into it. The disc has a dark green patina with extensive patches of lighter green corrosion. It is likely that this represents casting waste rather than an artefact. A direct parralel has not been found - however it is similar to leaded bronzes used in the Roman and later medieval periods. It is possible this is associated with medieval metalworking - such as casting metal vessels Oute…

The reverse face is plain and undecorated - there is no evidence of attachment lugs of fixing mounts.

A cast copper alloy bifurcated fitting of uncertain date and function. The artefact consists of a thickened shank that expands to form a cast loop. It is irregular in both plan and cross section.

Lead alloy terminal consisting of three rounded rings in a row, increasing in diameter from a rounded point. Between the first two rings is a flat band. On the base is the scar of a shaft. In profile the artifact is slightly oval. Length 26.0mm, Width 12.8mm, Weight 13.4g Peter Reavill FLO: The top of this artefact is possibly an acorn knop and the scar at teh base is wide enough to match a stem of a post medieval lead alloy (pewter) spoon. The artefact is erroded and the surface patina unsound: this identification is very tentative.
