The item is a crude sub-conical shape with a sub-circular vertical hole in the centre. The surface is very poor and cracked, therefore it is difficult to determine whether there may have been a pattern on the surface. The base is relatively flat.

The item is made from a stone which is either limestone or very similar. The stone has a grainy, easily worn texture. The colour of the stone is a dark brown/orange colour. The item is a flat circular disc with a central hole which has vertical sides and is 7.55mm diam.

A biconical lead spindle whorl (overall diameter: 34mm) with central perforation (diameter: 10mm) that does not narrow more at one end. Both faces are decorated. On one side, there is what appears to be a raised branch-like design with one line splitting into three towards the outer edge of the artefact with occasional dots in between. The other side also has raised linear decoration, but of an elongated cross design which reaches to the far edge of the whorl. It is difficult to date these spindle whorls precisely, but the highly decorated ones like this example usually date to th…

The spindle whorl is circular in plan with a central hole. The central hole is 9.22mm diameter. The faces of the whorl are flat and undecorated. The corners are slightly rounded.

The artefact is decorated on both sides. On one side, there are seven evenly spaced and worn pellets circling the central hole. On the other side, there are seven large letters that make up an inscription: ‘C, I,L,R,T,I,H’, which do not appea…

A complete cast lead spindle whorl, dating from the Medieval - Post Medieval period, between AD 1400 - 1600 (diameter: 25.5mm; thickness: 8mm; weight: 26.4g). This spindle whorl is circular in plan and bi-conical in section with a central circular drilled hole (diameter of hole: 8.5mm) for the probable wooden spindle to run through. The artefact appears to be faintly decorated on both sides with possible linear and pellet decoration, although the artefact is too worn to identify this clearly. The spindle whorl is in a worn and poor condition.
