A complete lead or lead alloy biconvex spindle whorl, of probable Medieval dating (AD 1100 to AD 1500). The spindle whorl is sub-circular in plan, with a central, circular perforation extending vertically through the object (internal diameter 9.5 mm). The sides of the spindle whorl are slightly convex and have a repeating pattern of vertical grooves and ridges. There are four lozenge-shaped mouldings attached to the corners of the object; there is a pronounced seam around the girth of the object and is suggestive that it was manufactured by casting. The seam indicating a line between …
