Yellow clay spindle-whorl, diam. 3.2cm. Again the very fine ungritted clay, though more yellow this example, again apparently unfired (cf. Sibertswold grave 83). Base slightly rounded, top curved with blunt sides. Top decorated by concentric grooves, the spaces between them narrowing towards the base; the bottom likewise has 2 concentric grooves.Apparently this also has an original label. The object marked with the grave number in ink.
