Record ID: OXON-56D0B2
Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete cast lead alloy spindle whorl of uncertain date (Roman to medieval, c. AD 43-1500). The spindle whorl is sub-conical with eleven moulded ribs down its sides with a central circular aperture with a diameter of 9.8mm. The height of the whorl is uneven which may suggest an earlier date as medieval whorls are frequently biconvex. There is cracking to all surfaces of the whorl. Similar whorls have been recorded on this database: see HESH-4CF861, and HESH-98F1C0.
