Lead weight, probably a spindle-whorl, irregularly circular and plano-convex, with a central circular perforation which tapers from 8-9 mm at the convex face to 9-10 mm at the flat face. Diameter varies from 29-32 mm, thickness 11 mm max, weighs 59g exactly.

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Irregular perforated weight or spindle-whorl made from chalk. Sub-rectangular with rounded corners when viewed either from the top or the side, it measures 27 x 34 mm and is 15 mm thick. It is either not particularly well made or has suffered some damage, as it has a rather lumpy outline. The circular perforation is a little off-centre and is symmetrically waisted, narrowing slightly to c. 10 mm minimum diameter. Weights like this one are usually interpreted as spindle-whorls, but a rectangular weight would perhaps not make a very good whorl as it would not turn evenly. They canno…

A perforated lead weight or spindle whorl. It is circular with a slightly irregular circumference measuring 25.3mm in diameter. It is plano-convex in shape and the the central perforation is approximately circular and 8.5mm in diameter. The spindle whorl is 5.15mm in height and weighs 16.87g. It is not possible to put a date on this object, but if this is a spindle whorl rather than a weight it could date to any time within the medieval period.

A lead spindle whorl of uncertain Roman or later date. It is conical in form with crudely flattened top and bottom surfaces, undecorated and with a central circular perforation. It measures 21.86mm in diameter, 7.80mm in height and weighs 15.73g. Simple lead weights such as this were utilised as spindle whorls over a long period of time and the current example may date to any point from the Roman period onwards.

A worked stone spindle whorl of uncertain date. It has been formed from a pale white stone, possibly limestone or similar, and is now in two joining halves due to old breaks. The whorl is circular in form, oval in section and with a slightly faceted outer surface that has produced an almost flattened rectangular circumferential rib. At the centre of the object is a circular aperture, which is narrower at one end (top?) than the other, the narrow end slightly countersunk suggesting that when produced the aperture was drilled from both directions. It measures 29.75mm in diameter, 17.26m…

A cast lead spindle whorl of Roman or later date. It is conical in form with flat top and bottom surfaces. At the centre is a large circular aperture measuring 11.85mm in diameter. The entire object measures 35.19mm in diameter at base, 18.87mm in height, and 99.79g in weight. This is a lead spindle whorl that may be of any date from the Roman period onwards although perhaps most likely from the Medieval or Post-Medieval periods.

A cast lead spindle whorl. It is conical in form with flattened top and bottom surfaces, and with a central circular perforation. The upper surfaces have moulded decoration comprising a series of unevenly spaced diagonal ridges, possibly intended to be in pairs, and numbering at least seven in total. It measures 35.53mm in diameter, 12.88mm in height and weighs 82.22g. Simple lead weights such as this were utilised as spindle whorls over a long period of time from the Roman period onwards. The relatively fine manufacture of this object including its decorative elements, and particul…

A cast lead spindle whorl of uncertain date. It is circular in form, conical in section with flattened top and bottom edges. It has an off-centred circular perforation and on the front face are what appear to be the remains of moulded geometric decoration, its precise form uncertain due to the preservation of the object. The entire object measures 30.63mm in diameter, 9.37mm in diameter at perforation, 8.23mm in height/thickness, and 43.65g in weight. This is a relatively simple cast lead spindle whorl that could be of any date from the Roman period onwards, although a later date rang…

Likely to be a complete cast lead spindle whorl of uncertain date. It is conical in from and sub-circular in plan. There is a significant circular hole at its centre. The base is smooth but the upper surface is pocked. The precise function is uncertain as it could conceivably be a weight or line sinker. Similarly, there is little diagnostic with which to date it meaning that it could date from the Roman period onwards. It measures 24.17mm in diameter, 8.10mm in height and weighs 17.53g.

A cast lead weight or spindle whorl of probable Medieval or later date. It is oval in form, D-shaped in section with central circular aperture. There is no decoration on any of the surfaces and the entire object measures 28.60mm in diameter, 8.44mm in thickness and 34.54g in weight. This is a simple cast lead weight, possibly for use as a spindle whorl. Its precise date range is uncertain and it may belong in any period from the Roman onwards, although a later Medieval to Post-Medieval date seems most plausible.
