Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead spindle whorl. Cast biconical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 11.5mm. There is a prominent circumferential rim where the two conical halves meet, but only scant indications of moulded decoration, possibly including radial lines and, where in better state, rectilinear compartments. These are highlighted by slight traces of blue colorant, but these appear over the densely patinated surface of the object, and may accordingly be recent. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1600 Diameter: 29.0mm, Thickness: 11.8mm, Weight: 39.08gms

Broad period: MEDIEVAL

A lead spindle whorl. The object is bi-conical in plan with a large central hole and no decoration on either surface. There is a large notch on one side. The use of spindle whorls spans from the Iron Age through to the early Post-Medieval period (Margeson 1993, 184). The size of the central perforation can be an indicator of date with larger perforations being indicative of an Early-Medieval to Post-Medieval date (Rogers 2007, 23-24). Lead spindle whorls also became more popular from the 13th century onwards, and it is therefore probable that this find dates from the Medieval period,…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast cylindrical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter c.11mm, Walton Rogers form B. Patinated, and distorted by plough strike, possibly also at the time of discovery. The spindle hole size and form could be compatible with an Anglo-Scandinavian date. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 1000-1100 Diameter: c.27mm, Thickness: 8.7mm, Weight: 31.41gms

Lead spindle whorl. Cast biconical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 10.3mm. Moulded decoration appears on both sides: a series of alternating radial ribs and grooves on one side is well defined. A ring of pellets on the other is either differentially worn or, more likely, a casting using a mould made from a worn master. The spindle hole is blocked by compacted soil. Patinated. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1600. Diameter: 28.2mm, Thickness: 12.5mm, Weight (with trapped soil): 36.44gms

Broad period: ROMAN
County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast lead spindle whorl probably dating from the Roman period, about AD 43 - 410. The whorl is of conical form, which does not fit clearly into Walton Rogers' typology, but is most similar to form A1. The object has a height of 16.1mm, a base diameter of 21.2mm, and weighs 32.5g. The central hole aperture has a consistent diameter of 4.5mm. The small size of the aperture, and the shape of the whorl, suggest a date in the Roman period. Alberti (2017) lists conical whorls as a shape known in the Roman period. See also Walton Rogers (2007, pp. 24-26).
