Record ID: NMGW3111
Object type: PERFORATED OBJECT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Discoidal perforated stone. Diameter 24mm, thickness 14mm, internal diameter 5mm, weight 12.5 grams. Although conventionally identified as spindle whorls, perforated stone weights like this example could have been used for other functions such as fishing or net weights (Manning et al. 1995, 251). Roman spindle whorls are usually made from sherds of pottery; however, examples made from lead, brass coins, jet, bone and stone are also known (cf. Wheeler 1930, 106-107; Manning et al. 1995).

Object type: PERFORATED OBJECT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: the Vale of Glamorgan
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Irregular discoidal perforated stone. Diameter 22.5-24mm, thickness 12mm, internal diameter 5.5mm, weight 8.9 grams. The slightly irregular form of this example suggests that an identification as a spindle whorl may be somewhat problematic and this perforated stone could have been used as a fishing or net weight (cf. Manning et al. 1995, 251).

Workflow stage: Published Find published
Perforated stone identified and recorded from a photograph. Study of the photograph suggests that the perforation is artificial and not the result of natural erosion or weathering. It is possible that the stone was either a loom or netting weight. Length c.15mm.

Stone ball. Diameter 33mm. The function of the ball is uncertain; however, it is possibly a baking ball used to hold down empty pastry cases to stop them rising in the oven. Dating is problematic but if it is a baking ball then it may be relatively recent in date.
