Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead spindle whorl which could be Roman or later in date as they do not change in form through time. This example is cone-shaped with a central circular hole, it measures 18.7mm in height and 27.4mm in base diameter. The central hole is 5.9mm in diameter at the base and 4.5mm in diameter at the tapering terminal. The outer face of the spindle whorl is rough and there are several small rectangular indentations which form a transverse row, these may be intentional decoration although due to wear it is difficult to be sure.

A lead complete spindle whorl of Roman or later date, the precise date of unstratified spindle whorls is very difficult to ascertain as their form changes very little through time. This example is conical in shape with a central circular hole and measures c31.5mm in base diameter and 11mm in height, the central hole is 9.2mm in diameter. There are several vertical grooves on the outer face, these are randomn and may be due to damage and do not appear to be intentional decoration.

County: Suffolk

Circular lead weight, flat beneath and domed above, with central hole. The outer diameter is 30mm, the central hole 8mm, and the height at centre is 8.5mm. It may be a spindle-whorl, in which case it might be early mediaeval, but it might also be a weight (e.g. fishing or similar) and if so it could be a good deal later.
