Chalk Sculpture. A slab of chalk with smoothing and carving on the flat face produced by its splitting. Some of this carving comprises the smoothing of the surface, and the definition of a half-oval depression with a pointed end, which appears as a finely smoothed area, but other, probably intrusive, parts of the carving appear very recent indeed. The material is very similar to - perhaps even from another fragment of the same slab - as NLM-119D13. The worked face depicts a V-shaped or vulvate figure rendered in strong relief at the end of an oval-ended depression, with further more l…

Chalk Sculpture fragment. A slab of chalk with carving on the flat face produced by its splitting, now in two probably joining fragments, but reported as separate discoveries. The larger fragment bears a relief carving which appears to depict a three-dimensional plan view of a simple bivallate hill fort of Iron Age type with a single entrance passage approached by a V-shaped avenue, and with round or oval huts suggested within. The relief of the ramparts and ditches is emphasised by closely-spaced hachures, which possibly result from the use of a pointed metal tool with a rocking motio…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Doncaster
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
Volcanic Tuff Polished Stone Axe. Large and elongated polished stone axe head, probably Langdale group 6. The axe has a curving cutting edge, more worn on one side, and a lentoid section with flattened edges, and tapers towards a narrow butt. The original shaping appears to have left a slight bulge on one edge uncorrected. One large and one small chip on one side and two large chips on the other have been smoothed, and represent damage incurred and repaired in the working life of the axe, perhaps arising from its hafting; the cutting edge remains sharp. Other chips, particularly at the…

Object type: MORTAR (VESSEL)
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Leeds
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A stone vessel, a mortar of uncertain date, probably Post Medieval, probably about AD 1600 - 1700. The stone vessel is octagonal in plan with a flat base and a rounded top, with a circular concavity in the top, about 60mm deep, which forms the vessel. The top is abraded and irregular. The vessel is about 120mm tall, and about 220mm in diameter. There does not appear to be any decoration. Mortars or "creeing troughs" would have been used with a pestle for removing the husks from grain before cooking. Post Medieval examples often have distinctive shapes such as WILT-84FE96. Other more d…

Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A fragment of possible whetstone or hone of uncertain dating (from the Roman period onwards, c.AD 43 to 1800). It is rectangular in shape and square in cross-section, being broken at both ends (narrowing from 29.29x28.70 to 27.21x27.81). It measures 65.09mm in length and weighs 86g. The stone is porous with micaceous inclusions, probably a coarse-grained sandstone and of the same material as HAMP-6748C7, which was found with it. The object itself is barely worn. Helen Rees, Winchester Museums, comments the stone type would be unusual for a whetsonte or hone (pers.comm. October 2014).

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An incomplete whetstone or hone of probable Scandinavian (Norwegian) origin and made of schist. The whetstone is sub-rectangular in plan and cross-section, with one finished edge and face, both slightly concave in profile, the other edges being smooth but bumpy and unfinished. Both short edges appear broken. Towards one end a 'corner' is cut off. This end has a piercing, central between the cut-off corner and the finished edge, in a wide U-shaped groove. It is countersunk from both faces, measuring c.5.8mm diameter on the outside and c.4mm at the centre. Presumably this was for suspens…

Object type: QUERN
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A fragment of glauconitic or greensand quern, triangular in cross-section with breaks along all edges except that of the curved outer edge. One face is concave while the other, though flatter, has a rougher surface finish and several grooves perhaps from blade-sharpening. The curved outside edge also features a similar mark. Measures 185x133x(max)52mm (narrowing to min.21mm thick) and weighs 1316g. The stone probably originates in Midhurst, West Sussex, and the quern is of Iron Age - Roman date (c.600 BC to AD 410).

Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Neath Port Talbot
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
Neolithic polished stone axe, dating from c. 4000 - 2500BC The axe is complete but may have a reworked butt and may originally have been longer (with a length of 124.5mm and a weight of 667g). The axe has been pecked to shape with selective polishing, principally along the blade. The oval butt (45mm wide and 32mm thick) is flat but is bevelled from one face to the other and is coarser than the faces, appearing less finished. The sides of the axe are straight and gradually divergent to the blade edge (with a blade width of 83.2mm). The axe has an oval body section (with a maximum thick…

Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
An incomplete possible whetstone of uncertain date. The stone is lentoid in profile and circular in section constructed from fine grained sandstone with a high mica component. Each end of the object has broken away. A deep linear groove measuring 5.16mm in width runs transverse across the centre of one face, possibly caused by sharpening tools. This form of whetstone is fairly ubiquitous throughout history. It is difficult to say that this is definitely a whetstone as natural stones could be used for this purpose without much working to make them suitable. Whetstones are known to have…

Piece of fire-cracked stone, so-called 'pot-boiler', The fragment came from a quartzite cobble which was shattered when heated and dropped into water. Part of the original surface survives and bears traces of crazed cracking, the other faces show a hackly fracture and the rock shows some signs of reddening. Length 42.6mm, Width 42.6mm, Thickness 35.0mm, Mass 68.96g Stones like these were used in the heating of large quantities of water in wooden troughs. They are known from Bronze Age contexts but also occure on Early Medieval sites.

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An incomplete upper half from a grey volcanic lava stone quern of probable Medieval date. A fragment from one edge of the quern survives, the remainder now missing due to old breaks. The non-grinding surface has medium sized and crude pecking, the grinding surface worn completely smooth either as a result of usage or later re-use. All surfaces demonstrate evidence for re-use at a later date for something other than a quern, perhaps resulting in the old breaks. It measures 166mm in surviving width, 152mm in surviving length, 51.31mm in thickness and 1.86kg (1860g) in weight. This quern…

An incomplete upper half from a grey volcanic lava stone quern of probable Medieval date. Less than one quarter of the half survives, the remainder now missing due to old breaks. The non-grinding surface has medium sized and crude pecking, with a large circular hole to one side that measures 27.27mm in internal diameter and would have enabled the attachment of a stick or similar to turn/rotate the quern. The grinding surface itself is completely smooth perhaps as a result of usage but also plausibly from later re-use, which is perhaps evident in damage to both sides of the fragment. It…

An incomplete stone mortar or type of saddle quern of Unknown date. The object is sub-triangular in plan and sub-rectangular in cross-section. It is composed of fossiliferous Bembridge Limestone (not Quarr Stone) and the steeply carved oval recess is smooth through use. The sides are generally irregular. One side is partially flat and has been carved as such. The bottom is slightly convex and has a number of scuff marks, probably related to modern agricultural activity. A reddened area on the side may indicate burning or heating. The stone is generally a buff colour and the break is…
