Object type: ARCHITECTURAL FRAGMENT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A possible stone architectural fragment of possible Medieval date. It is slightly curvilinear in section and asymmetrical in form with rounded outer edges. The front face is decorated with at least nine diagonal grooves, possibly to represent the folds of a skirt. In the centre is a pair of oval apertures. These measure 15.83mm in length and 8.32mm in width on the front face. As they travel diagonally through to the back face they grow in size to 43.90mm in length and 25.93mm in width. The remainder of the back face is undecorated. This object measures 129.80mm in length, 155.41mm in…

Record ID: SWYOR-CE309F
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: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Neath Port Talbot
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
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…

Object type: POT BOILER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
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 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.

Whetstone of uncertain (but far from recent) date, discoidal and sub-circular, in fine grained grey stone.

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…

Object type: STOUP (BASIN)
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Greisen holy water stoup, sub-square in plan with a circular reservoir and rectangular in profile. There is slight damage to one edge of the rim of the stoop, but otherwise it is in good condition considering it was found under the tarmac of a road. These holy water stoups are locally dated from the Later Medieval period and would have stood by the entrance to the church and contained holy water to be used to make the sign of the cross as the faithful entered in. This stoup was found down the road from the church of St Gothians, Gwithian, where it might have been used, before perhaps …

A 1920s/30s Art-Deco urn (garden decoration) made from a conglomerate man-made material best termed as concrete. The object stands 230mm high, with an outer diameter of 185mm. The walls of the top of the piece are 32mm thick.The 'cup' is 80mm deep. The base has a diameter of 132mm. The object has been cast in concrete, probably mass produced in a mould. There are no tool or working marks that would be visible had it been carved or ground from stone, even a soft stone such as sandstone. On the inside edge of the urn is visible a small strip of iron embedded into the surface. This has…

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.
