Record ID: CORN-4BEBD7
Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Shale spindle whorl, circular in plan and ovate in profile and in section, with an off-set circular hole, 6 mm in diameter. Simple undecorated spindle whorls such as this one are more often excavated from sites dating from the Romano-British period in Cornwall, rather than from the Iron Age when they are often richly decorated. Quinnell (2004) illustrates a similar shale example from Trethurgy, St. Austell, on page 143, Fig.68, No.27, which is dated from the 3rd to the 4th century AD.
