Projecting from the top is an iron shank or loop, teminating in an old break and now heavily corroded. Weights can be difficult to date outside of a stratified context due to the fact that they are generally utilitarian objects and forms do not vary significantly over time.

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead spindle whorl of probable medieval date (c. AD 1200 - 1500). Biconical with a central circular perforation. Each face exhibits a mouolded pattern of zig zags and radiating lines. Spindle whorls as an artefact type can be hard to date accurately as they remained in use for a long period of time. However, Alberti (2017) comments that biconical spindle whorls are rare in the Roman period and that those examples which are decorated are more likely to be Medieval. See: Alberti, M. 2017 Spindle Whorls Roman Finds Group Datasheet No. 7.
