Record ID: SWYOR-ACD7E4
Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast lead alloy spindle whorl of possible Early Medieval date, about AD 500 - 600. It is conical and has a central, circular hole of 6mm diameter. It is 19.7mm in diameter and 10.4mm high. It weighs 17.6gm. The lead has a creamy white patina. Similar whorls are discussed in Walton Rogers (2007). She suggests that this shape and central holes of a diametre of 6-9mm are more likely to be 6th century in date. However, neither feature is a reliable dating technique, so a later date is also possible.

Object type: SHOT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead alloy impacted pistol ball of post-Medieval date, AD 1600 - 1850. The ball has been fired and has struck a solid object as it is now a in the shape of a flattened disc with a slightly thicker centre. It is characteristic of balls that have struck a hard flat rough surface at high velocity and can be compared to examples in Harding (2012, Lead Short of the English Civil war: a Radical Study, plate 25). The leading face displays a pattern of radiating striations. It has a light grey patina. In its current configuration it is 25mm long, 22.9mm wide and 3.4mm thick. It weighs 9.76gm.

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast, lead alloy artefact, possibly a fragment of a badge of Medieval or post-Medieval date, about AD 1200 - 1800. It is roughly square in shape with rounded corners, but the edges are likely to be broken, though they are worn. Protruding from one corner is a small spur of metal, perhaps once part of another element that has now broken away and is missing. The underside of the artefact is undecorated. It is thicker in the centre. Possibly this is two layers of metal, perhaps a projecting tab which has been bent over and flattened against the main object. A groove on each side if the…

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead alloy toy watch dating from the late 17th or 18th century. it is circular and convex on both faces, though damage has caused a depression in both faces. The edge round the top of the watch face is missing, revealing the two pieces that form the watch and the hollow inside. Both sides have the same design: a beaded edge, a band of ornate foliage decoration in relief, including large C scrolls, and then another row of beading before the clock face in the center. The numerals are Roman and are enclosed within raised bands. The inner face is plain, and the hands are cast in reli…

A cast, lead alloy artefact, possibly a badge of Medieval or early post-Medieval date, about AD 1200 - 1600. It is in the shape of a small anchor. The underside is flat and the upper sides of the stock, shank and arms are bevelled. One of the arms has broken away and is missing (the break is patinated), and the other has been bent sideways up towards the stock or cross bar. There is no evidence of mounting points on the underside, not any other form of attachment, suggesting it was originally sewn in place by wrapping thread round the object. The lack of any perforation makes it unlik…

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A circular, cast lead alloy weight of uncertain date, but probably Medieval or post-Medieval, about AD 1400 - 1800. It is in the shape of a shallow dome with a convex upper side and a flat base. It is possible that there is a design of three lions passant on the upper side, with only the upper of the three lions being discernable, but extensive patinated damage and wear makes this uncertain. There are also three parallel lines scored across the centre of the upper side. These appear to be deliberate but may have been caused by contact with farming machinery. The weight has a mass of 1…
