Sub-spherical fired clay bead of uncertain date. The bead is circular in cross section and slightly flattened top and bottom with a circular hole 3.0mm in diameter running through it.

Lead spindle whorl or weight. The object is plano-convex and sub-circular with a flat base, domed top and an irregular oval outline. There is a circular hole through the centre, top to botton 8.1mm in diameter. The entire piece is 25.2mm by 22.4mm and 10.9mm thick and weighs 20.64g. While lead spindle whorls are known from the late Early Medieval onwards, and the central hole is sufficiently large for this use, the irregular outline of this example, which would make the turn uneven, suggest it is more likely to be a weight. Lead weights were often homemade for weighing down a varie…
