Lead probable spindle whorl. Cast whorl with an off-centre moulded tapered aperture of diameter 13.7-15mm, and with two flat faces of uneven sizes, Walton Rogers form A2. Shrinkage lines on the upper broader surface suggest the object was cast in an open mould. Patinated. A lightly facetted appearance, like the off-centre position of the hole and the uneven profile, may evidence a failed or inept casting, though there is no indication the whorl was put to another use. The ample spindle hole and the form point to an Anglo-Scandinavian date, while the mass points to a primary intended fu…

Medieval lead spindle whorl, bi-convex with many rather irregular radial ribs and a few pellets on both faces. Similar to examples from Meols (Egan, G. in Griffiths et al. 2007, no. 2188 and nos. 2197-2200) and one from an early 16th-cent. context at the Augustinian Friary, Leicester, complete with its wooden spindle (Mellor and Pierce 1981, 139-40, fig.51 no.71). It is possible that the latter object was residual, but it is unlikely to have been very ancient when deposited in the context, in view of its completeness. Diameter 34.5mm, thickness 9.5mm, hole diameter 10mm. Weight 37.83g.…

Record ID: WREX-F98B66
Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete lead-alloy weight dating from the medieval to Post Medieval periods (1100-1800AD). The object is circular in plan and has been pierced which shows some signs of wear from being suspended. The back of the object is smooth but the upper surface appears to be decorated with randomly placed pellets. Although it is possible that this is just a result of the casting. It is unlikely that this was used as a spindle whorl since the off-set piercing would cause the spindle to spin unevenly. It is more likely to be some form of hanging weight, or net weight. Diameter: 33.5mm; inte…
