Cast lead stud/disc. Irregular in form. Front face demonstrates a central pellet in relief with a surrounding circular form. The reverse is plain. Possibly a miss-cast token. The site of recovery of the object could suggest however that this object is Roman in date and could therefore be a lead pot mend. These were used to hold broken vessels together before glue. A hole would be drilled into a broken vessel along the line of the break and then molten lead poured through which would harden on cooling (Cuddeford 1994 page 51).

Object type: COIN
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Denarius of Marcus Antonius minted in the east 32-31 BC. Augustus convinced the Roman world (wrongly) that Antonius' coins were made of base silver so examples like this remained in circulation until about AD 230. Catalogue number - 544, 21 in M.H.Crawford, 'Roman Republican Coinage', Cambridge 1974. Spink 457. Although this coin was struck in the late 30s BC, coins of its type stayed in circulation until the 3rd century AD when they are still being hoarded.

Cast lead plano-convex spindle whorl. The whorl is decorated with diagonal lines in relief which project from the perforation to the outer edge. Further decoration consists of irregular patterned circular dots. On the other side of the whorl the decoration consists of crosses and dots between the perforation and the outer edge. It has been noted that the weight of a spindle whorl is demonstrative of the thickness of yarn produced, with lighter spindle whorls (3-5 grams) being used for spinning cotton and the heavier ones (30-35 grams) for spinning wool (Margeson 1993, page 184).

Cast lead plano-convex spindle whorl, crude in form. Decoration is the same on both sides and consists of alternating hearts and four leaf clover shapes in relief around the perforation. It has been noted that the weight of a spindle whorl is demonstrative of the thickness of yarn produced, with lighter spindle whorls (3-5 grams) being used for spinning cotton and the heavier ones (30-35 grams) for spinning wool (Margeson 1993, page 184). This example weighs 19.87 grams, so it seems likely that it would have been used to spin a heavy material such as wool. The dating of unstra…
