Record ID: LVPL-A69835
Object type: STUD
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Enamelled copper alloy disc-shaped decorative stud dating from the Roman period. The field contains a small central blue enamel disc, an inner ring of green enamel and an outer ring of blue enamel containing a series of eight dots that may once have contained a different coloured enamel but now missing. The outer rim of the disc is milled around its edge and shows traces of red enamel. There is a short centrally positioned shank on the back that is circular in section and slightly tapering. The style of decoration is familiar on disc brooches of the period. e.g. R. Hattatt 'Brooches o…

A lead weight spindle whorl (or possibly net sinker or trap weight) of conical shape. The spindle whorl is 29mm in diameter with a central perforation that is 9mm in diameter. If decorated, the decoration is hard to make out: it probably consisted of random lines in relief on the diagonal surface. 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 41.47 grams…

A lead plano-convex spindle whorl. The spindle whorl is 26mm in diameter with a central perforation that is 7mm in diameter. While one side of the whorl is decorated with groups of two or three dots set apart by lines in relief, the other is decoration with a criss/cross of lines making up several overlaying star shapes, formed 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 (Mar…

Small, flat lead weight (net sinker or trap weight) or spindle whorl. The surface is very smooth and worn; the decoration, if any, hardly recognisable. 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 10.66 grams, so it seems likely that it would have been used to spin a lighter material such as cotton. The dating of unstratified spindle whorls is very diffic…

A plain cylindrical spindle whorl, cast from lead. The spindle whorl is 32mm in diameter with a central perforation that is 7mm in diameter. 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).

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 17.74 grams, so it seems likely that it would have been used to spin a material of medium weight such as thin wool. The dating of unstratified spindle whorls is very difficult. However, Egan (1998, page 256) has argued that there was an apparent lack of i…

Cast cu-alloy handle, possibly of a Roman chafing dish - however, this identification must remain doubtful. The handle is a perfect circle, 35x36mm outer diameter, 21mm inner diameter and 6-24mm height. It is decorated on the outside with what looks like a crouching animal, e.g. a fish (sturgeon?) or a dragon/snake-like creature. It is quite possible that it is of a 19th century dish. It should be mentioned here that exactly the same artefact was found in the Fylde area.

A lead plano-convex lead weight, probably a spindle whorl. It has a central perforation and it is decorated with what is possibly a moulded five-pointed star in relief. Lead weights like these are common finds and it has been noted that (if it is a spindle whorl), the weight of the spindle whorl is demonstrative of the thickness of yarn produced, with lighter spindle whorls (3-5g) being used for spinning cotton and the heavier ones (30-35g) for spinning wool (Margeson 1993, 184). This example weighs 31.72g, so it seems likely that it would have been used to spin a heavy material such …

Cast copper alloy hollow-backed mount in the form of a human face in refief. Well defined features, slit mouth with possible moustache defined by slanting grooves to either side eminating from beneath the nose. A pair of short protrusions from the chin resembles a forked beard. Drilled 'dimple' on top lip, well defined oval eyes and eyebrows with drilled pupils. The ornate hair comprises a central 'quiff' and sides standing proud of the head and defined by curving incised grooves. The face has been drilled on the left hand side with a 3mm diameter hole. It also appears that the right e…

Wheel-thrown rim sherd of Roman samian fine ware pottery. Imported Central Gaulish ware. There is very worn decoration on this sherd demonstrating an egg-and-dart border below a plain band under the rim lip. Other decoration depicts a possible floral design although not clear. Decoration was facilitated through use of a mould. The fabric is pink-orange and there is a little of the red-orange slip remaining. Possibly part of Dragendorff form 37 bowl.
