Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An undatable (but probably medieval to post-medieval) lead spindle whorl or weight, hemi-spherical in shape with a central piercing. The piercing is narrower on the flat underside (7.87mm) and wider on the convex upper face (8.14mm). The surface is in a bad state of preservation and any decoration is now lost. The underside has a shallow groove encircling it. Measures 21.81mm in diameter, stands 9.17mm in height and weighs 20.29g.

A worn and corroded, broadly circular cast lead object, possibly a spindle whorl or other weight. The whorl is flat on both surfaces with a rectangular cross-section. It is basic and has suffered corrosion and bending and is 'decorated' with crude angular punch marks all over both surface. The artefact has a large central hole with a diameter of c. 8.8mm. The hole has a ridge around it on both surfaces presumably a product of its creation. The object is c. 4.5mm thick and weighs 21.98g. It has been pointed out that the weight of a spindle whorl is suggestive of the thickness of yarn…

A circular cast lead-alloy artefact, probably a spindle whorl of Roman date. The whorl has a flat biconical section, with each cone truncated by the central perforation for attachment. There is a median ridge. The whorl is up to 21.45mm in diameter at its centre, 12.2mm thick, and the circular perforation for attaching to the spindle is up to 7.9mm in diameter, slightly squashed on one face. Part of one of the faces of the whorl is seemingly decorated with incised diagonal incisions which extend to the median ridge, radiating out from the hole. The rest of the artefact appears to be p…
