Cast cu-alloy furniture mount or fitting dating to the Early Roman period depicting the bust of the Roman goddess Diana.

Several lead-alloy weights of different sizes and shapes (see attached picture). They were all found in the same corner of a field, but did not form part of a hoard. They almost certainly date from different periods from Late Roman to the Medieval Ages, were home-made and may have been used as spindle whorls, net sinkers, gaming pieces weights for traps or as part of weighing equipment. It is difficult to attribute an exact date to the individual weights. Many thanks to the finders for supplying the attached picture.

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 small plain lead cylindrical weight or spindle whorl. 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…

A lead plano-convex spindle whorl. The spindle whorl is 33mm in diameter with a central perforation that is 9mm in diameter. The whorl is decorated on both sides with raised dots and lines radiating from the centre.

A lead plano-convex spindle whorl. The surface is very smooth and worn; the decoration hardly recognisable.

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 …
