CANCM:7520 - Spindle whorl of black pottery. (Accessions register states: "n.b. a small ring-shaped piece of badly corroded bronze lay at a distance of 9" away from the whorl, and is quite possibly the end of the spindle, thus it would have been originally 9"(?) long and suspended from the bell" & "found by the right hip"). Found Bekesbourne, Kent N.G. 200555 by Mr. F. Jenkins, in grave 22, Anglo-Saxon cemetery. Production period: Anglo-Saxon. Acquisition source: Wilson, P.G., Mr. (Boundary Cottage, Bekesbourne).
