A complete lead alloy spindle whorl or weight of Early Medieval date (c. AD 950-1150). The object is circular with a flat top and base and rounded edges. A perforation runs through the centre. On one face there are lighter marks on the surface and one worn thin line or groove that runs from the central perforation to the outer edge. This groove is polished smooth and most likely comes from the use of the object demonstrating where it was tied to another object. The metal is a mid-grey, light brown colour.

An incomplete and very worn lead alloy spindle whorl probably dating from the late Early Medieval period or the Medieval period, about AD 850 - AD 1500. It is not possible to assign it to a Walton Rogers type. With its current damage and wear, it is roughly pentagonal with a large circular central hole of 8.3mm diameter. It is fairly flat in cross-section, with rounded edges. There is no decoration on the spindle whorl. The diameter of the spindle whorl is 18.8mm, the thickness is 3.8mm, and the weight is 5.9g.

Early Medieval lead alloy spindle whorl, 23 mm in diameter, 6 mm thick and weighing 8.74g. The object is roughly circular in form and a shallow D shape in cross section. It has a central circular hole 4 mm in diameter. The form of the object suggests it could be a poorly made spindle whorl which would match Walton Rogers form A1, but the hole is quite small so perhaps a flat wight is a more probable identification?
