Lead spindle whorl of uncertain date, possibly Roman or early-medieval (c. AD 43 - 1000). The spindle whorl is broadly circular in plan, with a central, circular perforation. The bottom face of the object is flat, while the upper face is domed. The object has a smooth grey surface with a slight white patina. It is 21.40mm in diameter and 6.74mm in thickness. The diameter of the perforation is 6.87mm. It weighs 13.18g. Lead spindle whorls are difficult to date without archaeological context as a similar form was used from the Roman period into the modern day. Similar spindle whorls are…

Lead conical spindle whorl of medieval date (c. AD 1200 - 1500). The object is circular in plan and triangular in section, with a central circular perforation which is wider at the angled face and narrower at the flat face. The angled face is decorated with dots, probably interspersed with zig-zagged lines, which sit within a recess between the inner and outer edges of the face. The overall decorative design is obscured by surface wear. It is possible the flat face was similarly decorated, although surface wear has entirely obliterated any indication of this, leaving a rough, pitted su…

A lead possibly Spindle whorl of possible Iron Age date, about 800 BC - AD 50. If it is a spindle whorl, it is of Walton Rogers Form C1 which has no flat faces and curved sides. This example is sub-spherical. Alberti notes that globular (in which she includes spherical) whorls are uncommon. The central hole has a diameter of 8mm. This is consistent with Walton Roger's suggests range of 4-8mm for Iron Age and Roman whorls, and she also notes that spherical whorls cease to be used in the Roman period. The object has a well developed brown patina. It is 21.9mm tall, 26.2mm diameter and 65…

Lead spindle whorl. Cast biconical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 9.3mm. Moulded decoration comprises radial lines in triangular and overlapping arrangements on both sides, and with occasional pellets discernible between them. Worn, with some loss of clarity where the decoration is concerned, and patinated. The mass might suggest a primary function plying cord. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1600 Diameter: 28.4mm, Thickness: 16.0mm, Weight: 52.17gms

Lead spindle whorl. Cast biconical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 9.4mm. Both sides bear moulded decoration: comprising slightly curved radial lines and pellets, both somewhat erratically distributed on one side; and somewhat straighter moulded lines and some pellets grouped close to the rim on the other. Patinated, with light damage to the edge of the hole on one side. The mass suggests this could have served to spin a yarn.

A complete lead-alloy spindle whorl of Medieval date, probably c.AD 1100 - 1300 but possibly as late as 1600. The spindle whorl is dome shaped (hemi-spherical) with a convex front and flat back and a central perforation (10.2mm diameter) running through it. . The upper surface is decorated with 11 large pellets. Six of these are spaced around the central hole to mark the points of a hexagon shape. Five further projecting knops are placed c3.7mm from these near the outside edge of the spindle whorl while a sixth appears to have been chipped away in an old scar. The pellets are placed w…

A lead spindle whorl dating to the Post-Medieval period (AD 1500-1600). Cast biconical whorl with a central moulded aperture of diameter 7.63mm. Moulded relief decoration on one side comprises faint lines forming rhomboid compartments. The other side bears similar faint decoration. A flat circumferential rim appears where the two halves meet. Patinated overall. Foreman (2018) has suggested the mass was intended to ply cord. He also suggests that deep nicks on one side, extending from the edge, might be tying notches.
