Record ID: SF-07586B
Object type: QUERN
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…

Object type: QUERN
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. 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 irregularly shaped piece of greensand, possibly originally a fragment of a quern (which suggests an iron Age or Roman date) or perhaps Roman building material - in Winchester Greensand was used in the Roman period to strengthen the corners of building foundations (Helen Rees, Curator, Winchester Museums, pers. comm. September 2014). The fragment measures 220x170x95mm with several linear grooves on one face c.7mm in depth, suggestive of possible blade-sharpening.

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…

A probably Bronze Age stone shafthole adze dating to the period c.1650 - 1250 BC. The adze is sub-ovular in plan with rounded edges. It is bi-convex in profile, with gently curving sides which taper to form a rounded blade at either end which show signs of polishing. The butt end is slightly narrower. The shape has been formed by pecking and grinding. It features a slightly obliquely orientated hourglass-shaped perforation just off centre, indicating the the perforation was worked from both sides. The adze is similar in plan and profile to Roe, (1979) pp. 38, fig. 13 nos. WA 1/ah &…

A bi-conical stone bead of uncertain date. It has a central circular aperture. This bead measures 16.25mm in diameter, 20.55mm in height, 7.02g in weight. There is a similar example recorded on the PAS database (KENT-3704E3). Dr Kevin Leahy writes: it is likely that this find represent a fossil sponge known as 'porosphaera' which, although used as beads during some periods of the past, are natural in origin.

Object type: MACE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
A late Neolithic or Bronze Age perforated object, often known as a 'battle axe'. This axe was purchased by a collector and subsequently reported to the Lincolnshire FLO. The object is claimed to have been found in the 1970s somewhere along the Lincolnshire coast. The axe formed part of an 'old collection' for many years prior to reporting. The object is made of a green-tinged black fine-grained basalt. The object is lozenge in plan with slightly rounded angles. At the 'cutting edge' the axe has a diamond-shaped, raised ledge that smooths towards the central hole. The central hole a…

Object type: GRAVE MARKER
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
An early medieval limestone 'eared' grave-marker with a conventional 'X patee' form of cross. A number of Lincolnshire examples of this type of monument are listed in Appendix F of the Lincolnshire Corpus volume (P Everson and D Stocker, Corpus of Anglo-Saxon Stone Sculpture V: Lincolnshire, Oxford 1999). They are found quite regularly in Eastern England and are often grouped according to their quarry source. This particular example may well derive from Ancaster. The usually accepted typology suggests that they belong to the first century after the Conquest in date, though they per…

Record ID: CORN-EE5A2B
Object type: PESTLE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Small fine-grained granite pestle, cylindrical in profile and circular in plan and section, with two convex ends. The pestle has been worked by pounding at both ends, probably on a hard surface, resulting in considerable abrasion and the loss of material in the order of a centimetre (Dr Roger Taylor pers comm). The length of the tool still fits perfectly within a hand's grip. There are dark grey patches on the surface of the pestle and fine grains of felspar and mica. The pestle would have been used with a mortar or cupped stone, but this tool was found on its own in the field, in an a…

Object type: HAMMERSTONE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Small igneous rock ball or hammerstone of coarsely foliated greenstone. The ball is circular in plan and ovate in profile and section, with pecking on the upper surface and a flattened weathered base. The shape appears to result predominantly from weathering but one side is smoothed and rounded and appears to have been used for grinding. The hammerstone is conveniently hand sized, like CORN-EE5A2B. Such pieces do turn up on domestic sites but not in any quantity compared to mullers and rubbers. It is quite possible that the wear on these objects has been caused by grinding pieces in th…

Object type: MACE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Fragment of a quartzite ovoid macehead, semi-circular in plan and profile and plano-convex in section, with a mottled grey and 'port wine stain' colouration. Half of the perforation or shafthole remains, which is circular in plan and 20 mm in diameter. The shafthole would have held a wooden handle or haft to complete the mace, and would have been bored by using sand and a drill. The shafthole is an hourglass shape in profile, suggesting that it has been drilled from both sides, and is 38 mm in height. This shape might have improved hafting, especially if the wooden haft or handle was s…

Incomplete greisen cup-marked stone, sub-square in plan and profile and plano-convex in section. The convex face has three dimples that are 25 mm in diameter, in a circular arrangement, which run up to the broken edges on both sides, suggesting that there were more cup-marks on the missing piece. The underside of the stone has been damaged with two deep linear grooves in a cross formation that reveals the quartz beneath the weathered and soiled surface. These cup-marked decorated stones are generally dated from the Late Neolithic to the Early Bronze Age because they are sometimes assoc…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Incomplete coarse greisen saddle quern with a worn concave central reservoir, and one remaining built up edge, through use as a quern or grain mortar. The other edges of the quern have been lost and this may be because the stone was dressed in more recent times in order to re-use it for building material. Similar to other saddle querns found around the county on Bronze Age sites, such as Trethellan, Newquay, where several varied examples were found, the closest in form illustrated in Nowakowski (1991) on pages 144 & 146, Figs.59-60, Nos.92 & 94 from the Middle Bronze Age round …

Object type: MULLER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Fragment of a stone muller or rubber, sub-triangular in plan, and sub-rectangular in profile and section. The stone is derived from a schorl rock which is metasomatically altered granite composed of quartz and black tourmaline schorl. The source is likely from the margin of the Land's End Granite (Dr Roger Taylor pers comm). The upper surface and the base of the stone are both flat and polished through use, suggesting that it was likely used as a rubbing stone or muller, perhaps within a quern to grind grain. The outer edge of the stone is curved and the two other sides are broken, exp…
