Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Wrexham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Stone spindle-whorl of uncertain date, Roman to early Post Medieval, c. 100 - 1700 The spindle-whorl is comparatively regular and circular (of 35.8 - 37.4mm diameter and weighing 27.8g) is made from a fine-grained, micaeous sandstone, now with ground surfaces. The spindle-whorl is of sub-rectangular section (13.9mm thick) with near-flat faces. The perforation is central and is circular (7.4mm diameter) with straight parallel sides. There is no surviving evidence of applied decoration to the surfaces. Margeson (1993, page 184)[1] has suggested that the weight of a spindle whorl is…

Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Conwy
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
The axe is complete (with a length of 142.8mm and a weight of 536.3g) and has a consistent polish which has removed all the shaping, presumably through pecking. The butt is blunt and has an even curve (45mm wide). Both sides are straight and gradually divergent to the blade. The axe has a pointed elliptical body section and reaches a maximum thickness (of 35.3mm) approximately one third of the length from the blade (53mm from the blade). The blade is moderately rounded (and has a width of 80.4mm). The blade retains its edge and has a number of small nicks. Geological examination of th…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Monmouthshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Prehistoric flint scraper, probably of Neolithic date The scraper appears to be incomplete, missing one side and would have broken in antiquity (with a length of 49.1mm, a surviving width of 34.7mm, a thickness of 14.1mm and a weight of 24.1g). The retouch is present on all of the presumed original edge, up to the striking platform. The flint is non-cortical and unpatinated, mid-grey.

Object type: QUERN
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A fragment of grey lava quern stone top of probable Roman or later date, probably imported from the Rhine. It is roughly rectangular in form, terminating on either side in old breaks. The outer edge tapers towards the centre to give a sub-triangular profile. On the top face is the remains of a circumferential groove, approximately 70mm from the outer edge. The bottom face is concave in profile from continous grinding action. This quern measures 125.48mm in length, 136.27mm in width, 50.74mm in thickness at the outer edge, 18.79mm in thickness at the inner edge, 8.55g in weight. Ther…

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
A complete unifacial quartzite handaxe, of Lower and / or Middle Palaeolithic dating (400, 000 BC to 50, 000 BC). The quartzite handaxe has been struck from a pebble core. It has been worked unifacially (one side). Approximately 50% of the pebble has been worked. Two large flakes have been removed, to create the main shape, with a couple of smaller flakes removed from the right hand side to create a slightly serrated edge. It measures 102.1 mm in length, 58.5 mm wide and 33.1 mm thick. It weighs 314 g. The quartzite is a mid brown colour, with a couple of curved red veins.

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
Early Neolithic stone axehead, 72mm long, 43mm wide and 20mm thick. The object is in good condition with a weight of 89.366grams. The axe is complete except for a chip on one side near its butt end. It is produced from a fine grained brown/green stone. It is unfacetted and has a rounded surface which terminates in a very faint ridge down each side, giving it a pointed oval cross-section. It has a gently rounded blade which is intact and still crisp. The axe appears to be Group VI volcanic tuff, probably making it a product of the Langdale axe factory.

The stone is sub-rounded, consistent with water rolling.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
The pointed tip from a broken stone whetstone or hone. The whetstone is made from very fine-grained sandstone with mica flecks and areas with black patches. The material is very similar to coal measures sandstone but this has not been verified as the source for the stone. The stone is a pointed triangle in plan and sub-triangular in section. The sides are highly polished and faceted from the repeated action of sharpening blades.

Object type: MORTAR (VESSEL)
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Carved stone mortar of probable medieval or early post medieval date (1250- 1600 AD). The mortar is near complete and broadly circular in plan and sub-rectangular in profile. The mortar itself has been carved from a single block of stone, probably either a coarse limestone or possibly a gritstone. The outer face of the mortar has a large number of small angular dish shaped peck marks present. These are most evident on the lower part of the outer edge and on the large rib shaped lugs. On the edge of the outer face of the mortar are two large ribs which are set at 180° to one another. T…

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…

Neolithic flaked and polished stone axe, c. 3500 - 2100BC The axe is near-complete (with a length of 164mm and a weight of 381.9g) with a few recent flaking scars and some rounding through water-rolling. The butt is narrow and moderately straight (with a width of 24mm). Both sides are convex, reaching their widest position (of 58.7mm) close the blade edge (46mm from the edge). The widest point is also close to the point of maximum thickness of the axe (at 31.0mm, 54mm from the blade edge). Both faces are convex across both their lengths and widths, with remnants of partially ground fl…
