Lead possible spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 9.5mm, Walton Rogers form A1. The grey tint of the metal may point to its recent date, or to unusual sealed burial conditions. The ample spindle hole may hint at an Anglo-Scandinavian date, while the mass would permit this to have been used to spin a fine yarn. . The convex side bears multiple triangular indentations, possibly showing the object has been gnawed by an animal or vermin, or by a small child, perhaps showing reuse as an improvised teething ring. Suggested date: Early Medieval,…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast plano-convex whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 11.3mm, Walton Rogers form A1. The grey tint of the metal may point to either a relatively recent date or to an unusual, possibly sealed, burial context. Material adheres to the outer surface of the whorl. The spindle size would be compatible with an Anglo-Scandinavian date. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-1000. Diameter: 30.8mm, Thickness: 12.4mm, Weight: 41.60gms
