Record ID: NLM-0902D3
Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: North East Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead spindle whorl. Cast possibly plano-convex whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 9.8mm, possibly Walton Rogers form A1. The surface is delaminated and flaked, possibly as a result of burning or of the unusually aggressive deterioration of the metal. The spindle size might admit an Anglo-Scandinavian date, while the mass would have permitted this to have spun a yarn. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000 Diameter: 26.1mm, Thickness: 9.9mm, Weight: 19.13gms.

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead possible weight. A short cast tube of globular form with a large [diameter 16.7mm] central aperture; battered and lightly patinated. One end bears cut-marks; the other is lightly splayed. The form is not dissimilar to that of modern fishing weights used by sea anglers, though the hole could admit the selvedge of a large net. The modest degree of patina may point to a relatively recent date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1700-1900 Length: 29.7mm, Diameter: 25.3mm, Thickness (wall): 5.2mm, Weight: 63.43gms
