A complete lead or lead alloy bi convex spindle whorl, of probably the Roman to Post Medieval period, probably dating from c. AD 43 - c. AD 1650. The spindle whorl is broadly circular in shape, and broadly D shaped in section. It appears as if the whorl was biconvex however it has since been flattened or worn down on one side of the reverse. The upper and lower faces show little evidence of decoration. There is a circular perforation (hole) which has been set slightly off centre. It has a internal diameter of 7.4 mm. The whorl measures 17.1 mm in diameter, and 7.9 mm thick. It w…

A cast lead or lead alloy spindle whorl of Roman to Post Medieval date (c. AD 1 - 1650). In plan the spindle whorl is sub-circular. There is a sub-circular perforation which is 8.45mm diameter which is located off- centre. One face is concave, the other is flat and both have no visible decoration. The surfaces of the spindle whorl are a light cream colour. Spindle whorls are used for a long period of time and decorated examples are thought to date to the medieval to post-medieval periods. However, this undecorated example is very difficult to date precisely without other evidence (…

A complete ceramic spindle whorl of probable Roman dating (AD 200 to AD 400). The spindle whorl is circular in shape with a flat cross section. The upper and lower surfaces are flat. The central hole has been set roughly centrally, and has an internal diameter of 8.0 mm. The shape of the spindle whorl would suggest that it has been specifically made and not created from a reused sherd of pottery. The spindle whorl has been made from an oxidised ceramic, with frequent fine grit inclusions. As surfaces are weathered, with no fresh break available, it is not possible to identify the s…
