A circular, undecorated, conical perforated lead spindle whorl or weight, with a flat base and domed top. The hole which runs through the centre of the weight is circular, 9.2mm in diameter. Cast lead spindle whorls or weights were relatively easy to make at home and had a wide range of uses. They are therefore hard to date and could be from the Roman, Medieval or Post Medieval periods It is 27.4mm in diameter, 15.4mm thick and weighs 59.85gms

A possible sub spherical small spindle whorl. The slightly oval bead has a large central hole with straight sides. It could also have been used as a form of weight; perhaps a net-sinker or line weight. It has a length of 16.36mm, width 16.8mm, thickness 5.80mm and a weight of 22.76g. A similar example is BH-798332. The date and function of this object is not certain.

A crude, lead alloy spindle whorl of uncertain date from the Roman to Medieval periods. The whorl is sub circular in plan and rectangular in section. The hole is off centre and slightly angled. One face is slightly hollowed. It would seem to fit into Coppergate type B1. Spindle whorls are very difficult to date as few are found in dated contexts.

A cast lead spindle whorl or possibly weight. It has a flat top, a larger, slightly concave, base and tapering sides. there is a large tapering circular hole running through the centre (wider at the base). It is 22.6mm in diameter, 13.9mm tall with a hole 10.2mm in diameter at the base and 8.9mm at the top and weighs 29.81 grams. Plain spindle whorls and weights were cast locally in lead from the Roman period onwards and are hard to date precisely although most are late Medieval - Post Medieval.

Cast lead alloy decorated spindle whorl. The whorl is circular with a flat base and domed top, slightly flattened in the centre, and a circular hole running through the centre. The upper side is decorated with raised lines radiating out from the central hole, these are thought to help the spindle work as well as be decorative. It is 32.7 mm in diameter and 11.6 mm thick; weights 52.5 grams. Locally cast lead spindle whorls were in use from the Roman to Post Medieval period and are hard to date precisely.

A lead alloy spindle whorl of uncertain date. The whorl is circular with a central hole that goes all the way through the object, and nearly straight sides. It is white in colour and has brown patches on it. It has a diameter of 20.30mm, thickness 6.04mm and a weight of 23.10g. A similar example is LEIC-8402A3. Whorls of this basic design were in use from the Iron Age onwards (Rogers, 2007, Cloth and Clothing in Early Anglo-Saxon England, p 25), but are usually impossible to date.

A worked stone spindle whorl of uncertain date. It has been formed from a pale white stone, possibly limestone or similar, and is now in two joining halves due to old breaks. The whorl is circular in form, oval in section and with a slightly faceted outer surface that has produced an almost flattened rectangular circumferential rib. At the centre of the object is a circular aperture, which is narrower at one end (top?) than the other, the narrow end slightly countersunk suggesting that when produced the aperture was drilled from both directions. It measures 29.75mm in diameter, 17.26m…

A cast lead spindle whorl of Roman or later date. It is conical in form with flat top and bottom surfaces. At the centre is a large circular aperture measuring 11.85mm in diameter. The entire object measures 35.19mm in diameter at base, 18.87mm in height, and 99.79g in weight. This is a lead spindle whorl that may be of any date from the Roman period onwards although perhaps most likely from the Medieval or Post-Medieval periods.

A cast lead spindle whorl. It is conical in form with flattened top and bottom surfaces, and with a central circular perforation. The upper surfaces have moulded decoration comprising a series of unevenly spaced diagonal ridges, possibly intended to be in pairs, and numbering at least seven in total. It measures 35.53mm in diameter, 12.88mm in height and weighs 82.22g. Simple lead weights such as this were utilised as spindle whorls over a long period of time from the Roman period onwards. The relatively fine manufacture of this object including its decorative elements, and particul…

A cast lead spindle whorl of uncertain date. It is circular in form, conical in section with flattened top and bottom edges. It has an off-centred circular perforation and on the front face are what appear to be the remains of moulded geometric decoration, its precise form uncertain due to the preservation of the object. The entire object measures 30.63mm in diameter, 9.37mm in diameter at perforation, 8.23mm in height/thickness, and 43.65g in weight. This is a relatively simple cast lead spindle whorl that could be of any date from the Roman period onwards, although a later date rang…

A complete cast lead spindle whorl of uncertain date. The spindle whorl is plano-convex with an off-central perforation running through it. Both faces are worn and undecorated. The metal is a mid brownish-white colour and is worn. The spindle whorl is 31.3mm in diameter, 10.9mm thick and weighs 60g. Lead spindle whorls were commonly used from the Iron Age through to the post-medieval period and are difficult to date with any certainty. Decorated examples are thought to date to the medieval to post-medieval periods while undecorated examples cannot be securely dated without supportin…
