Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead spindle whorl of medieval or post medieval date (c. AD 1066 - 1700). Domed in form with a circular base, slightly faceted sides and off-centre vertical circular perforation. The based exhibits a circumferential groove. Spindle whorls can be difficult to date as, with some exceptions, the general form seems to have changed little over time. Spindle whorls of this form are generally assigned a medieval to post medieval date range.
