Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead-alloy weight, probably a spindle whorl dating from the medieval period, that is c. AD1200-1500. The weight is circular, with a large perforation in the centre that held the spindle.

Lead weights like these are common finds, but only rarely from excavated contexts which is why date and origin are difficult to pin…
