A lead alloy weight, probably dating from the medieval to post-medieval periods. The weight is circular in plan with a roughly D-shaped cross section. There are no markings, stamps or decorations on either the upper or lower face of the weight. There is a small depression on the underside of the weight, and this may be a result of manufacturing by turning. The weight weighs 41gms or 1.45oz.

A Medieval to Post Medieval cast lead alloy uniface circular token. The token has a raised design of an intial or intials, probably intended to be a single letter W (designed as two overlapping letter Vs).

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete lead alloy spindle whorl probably dating from the earlier Medieval period. The spindle whorl is sub-circular in plan and has a large slightly off-centre perforation. It has a raised rim that runs around the outer circumference. The spindle whorl is decorated with a series of raised pellets on both sides; there is possibly a cross on one side although it is hard to make out. Spindle whorls decorated in this fashion are usually attributed to the earlier medieval period, c. AD 110-1400. Some examples may predate this and belong to the end of the early-medieval period.
