A cast lead or lead alloy spindle whorl or weight of Roman to Post Medieval date (1 - 1650 AD), most probably Roman (AD50-350). The spindle whorl is broadly ovullar in plan and is D shaped in the cross section; it has been eroded in the soil. The central hole is a circular shape; it has an internal diameter of 5.95mm x 5.85mm. Both faces are plain and undecorated. The spindle whorl has a cream - white coloured surface patina. Spindle whorls are used for a long period of time and as such are very difficult to date precisely without other evidence (such as pottery), though it was found i…

A cast lead or lead alloy spindle whorl or weight of Roman to Post Medieval date (50 - 1650 AD), most probably Roman (AD 50-350). The spindle whorl is broadly oval in plan and rectangular in cross section; it has been heavily eroded in the soil. The central hole is broadly oval in shape and has been cast centrally; it has an internal diameter of 6.2mm by 4.0. Both faces are plain and undecorated. The body of the whorl narrows to form a radial waist along the long axis of the whorl and central hole, with pronounced radial grooves at this point. This may be the result of wear or possibl…
