A cast lead alloy spindle whorl, of Walton Rogers type C2, dating from AD 1100 - 1600. It is biconvex and has a wide median band. There are faint traces of decoration, probably raised dots. The whorl has a light grey patina. It is 27.3mm in diameter and 12.5mm thick, with a central, circular perforation of internal diameter 10.4mm. It weighs 43.66gm. Walton Rogers (in the Flixborough volume and York Fasicules) suggests that biconical whorls date from AD 1100 onwards and cites Ivens et al (1995) that those with dots are Post Medieval.
