Broad period: ROMAN
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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 broadly D shaped in cross section; it has been heavily eroded in the soil. The central hole is an irregular oval shape, possibly extended as result of wear; and has been cast relatively centrally; it has an internal diameter of 12.6mm x 9.3mm. Both faces are plain and undecorated; there is an indistinct raised rim around the upper surface of the central hole. The spindle whorl has a cream - white coloured surface…

Lead spindle whorl of medieval date (c. AD 1200 - 1550). The spindle whorl is conical with irregular, fragmentary edges and a central, circular perforation. Moulded lines transect the upper face of the object. The spindle whorl is dark grey in colour with a light brown patina. It is 33.44mm in diameter, 9.16mm in thickness and weighs 29.70g. The diameter of the central perforation is 11.74mm. Lead spindle whorls can be difficult to date without archaeological context, although conical examples with moulded decoration are typically assigned to the medieval period on analogy with excava…

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast lead spindle whorl dating from the Early Medieval period, about AD 500-900. The whorl is of conical form. The central aperture follows the shape of the whorl, and is narrower at the top (apex end) at 7.20mm diameter, than the bottom (9.25mm diameter). The object has a height of 17.5mm, a basal diameter of 25.6mm, and weighs 40.13g. The smaller size of the aperture, and the shape of the whorl, which appears to fit into Walton Rogers form A1, suggest a date in the Early to Middle Saxon period. Compare SWYOR-CAC221, and see Walton Rogers (2007, pp. 24-26).

Lead spindle whorl of uncertain date within the period c. AD 43 - 1900. The spindle whorl is circular in shape and rectangular in section, with a large central, circular perforation. It has a patchy white and brown patina. It is 21.51mm in diameter, 9.59mm in thickness and weighs 20.98g. The diameter of the central perforation is 10.91mm. Lead spindle whorls can be difficult to date without archaeological context as a similar form was used from the Roman period to the modern day.

Lead spindle whorl of uncertain date within the period c. AD 43 - 1800. The spindle whorl is broadly oval in shape, with a flat bottom face and a convex upper face of uneven thickness. It has a central, circular perforation. The object has a white patina. It is 41.46mm in diameter, 12.39mm in thickness and weighs 73.68g. The diameter of the central perforation is 11.28mm. Lead spindle whorls can be difficult to date without archaeological context as a similar form was used from the Roman period to the modern day. This is especially the case for crudely-formed examples such as this one.

Lead spindle whorl. Cast cylindrical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 12.4mm, Walton Rogers form B, though some lightly formed facets appear round the sides. Shrinkage lines suggest the object was cast in an open mould. Patinated, and dented or flattened on one side. The mass may suggest a primary function plying cord, while the large hole would admit an Anglo-Scandinavian date. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 1000-1100 Diameter: 32.5mm, Thickness: 12.5mm, Weight: 70.83gms

A complete Roman to post-medieval lead spindle whorl. It has a flat base and convex upper surface. There are transverse scratches on the curved upper surface, although these do not appear to form letters or any distinct pattern. The metal survives in good condition. Undecorated spindle whorls were in use from the Roman to post-medieval period. The small diameter of the hole may indicate a date towards the earlier of this chronology. Diameter: 31.70mm, thickness: 6.37mm, weight: 38.63g

A lead alloy spindle whorl, undecorated and worn. The object has one flat face and one shallow domed faced, with a regular, slightly off-centre perforation. Spindle whorls were in use throughout the Iron Age through to the early post-Medieval period (Margeson 1993, 184-5). The simplicity of the item makes it difficult to accurately date, however, the plano-convex shape and ample perforation sizer implies an early medieval date. (PAS 2011) The whorl is similar to other finds on the database such as NLM-974211 and NLM-40F3C2.

A lead alloy spindle whorl dating to the Medieval period (c. 800-1000). The spindle whorl is trapezoid in cross-section, with two flat faces of different sizes, usually indicative of a ninth-tenth century date (Shopland 2005, p.215). There is no apparent decoration. Spindle whorls were in use throughout the Iron Age through to the early post-Medieval period (Margeson 1993, 184-5).

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead alloy spindle whorl dating to the Medieval period (c. 1200 - 1500). The spindle is bi-conical in cross section and decorated with radial grooves on both faces. The shape of the whorl is mostly regular, with a very regular central perforation. Spindle whorls were in use throughout the Iron Age through to the early post-Medieval period (Margeson 1993, 184-5). The use of lead, which became more prominent after the thirteenth century, coupled with the bi-conical shape implies a Medieval date (Webley, 2017).
