A lead spindle whorl dating from the Post-Medieval period (AD 1500 - 1600). Cast biconvex whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 11.06mm. Each side bears moulded decoration. One side has a slightly wandering circumferential rib at about the middle, and a series of 8 radial lines which pass from the rim of the central hole across the medial lines and joining an outer rim where the two halves meet. The other side has a geometric pattern of rhomboid shapes. The edge is damaged on one side. Forman (2018) suggests a primary use plying cord. Diameter: 30.31mm, Thickness: 9.03mm, …

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead spindle whorl of medieval or post medieval date (c. AD 1066 - 1700). Domed in form with a circular base, slightly faceted sides and off-centre vertical circular perforation. The based exhibits a circumferential groove. Spindle whorls can be difficult to date as, with some exceptions, the general form seems to have changed little over time. Spindle whorls of this form are generally assigned a medieval to post medieval date range.

A lead spindle whorl of Walton Rogers from B dating from the Early Medieval to Post Medieval period, AD 900 - 1600. It is a disc with both faces more-or-less flat and straight sides. One face is decorated with radiating grooves. It is 31.6mm diameter, 7.5mm thick and the central hole is 9.7mm in diameter. 40.5g. It has a well developed white patina. Form B spindle whorls are known from AD 700 in York, but the large size of the central aperture suggests a Late Saxon date onwards.

A cast lead or lead-alloy spindle whorl or possibly weight. It is broadly conical with a flattened top and base with a tapering circular hole running through the centre. It is 29.3mm in diameter at the base, c18mm at the top, it is 11.1mm high and weighs 36.76g; the hole is 10.2mm in diameter at the base, 6.8mm at the top. Plain spindle whorls and weights were cast locally in lead from the Roman period onwards and such plain and rough examples are hard to date precisely although most are late Medieval - post-medieval.

A cast lead decorated bi-conical spindle whorl dating from the Post-medieval period, about AD 1500 - 1600. It is of Walton Rogers form C. It is decorated on both faces with raised lines forming a zig-zag line round the central aperture, and large raised pellets or dots. Walton Rogers cites Ivens et al that whorls decorated with raised dots are Post Medieval. The object has a diameter of 27.04mm, and a thickness of 11.80mm. It weighs 34.25g. The central aperture has a maximum diameter of 10.99mm.

County: Leicestershire

Lead spindle whorl of medieval date. It is round in plan and biconical in section, and both faces appear to have been originally decorated. The whorl has suffered from surface abrasion within the ploughsoil and all that is now visible are faintly impressed pellets and ribs in a random pattern. The central hole is straight sided. The outer diameter is 29.9mm, hole diameter is 9.8mm, the thickness at the centre is 13.7mm and it weighs 56.2g. The object has a light grey patination. The whorl conforms to Walton-Rogers form C, and therefore probably dates to c.1000 - 1500AD.
