Record ID: WILT-3AC67D
Object type: PERFORATED OBJECT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
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 &…

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk

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.

Record ID: LIN-3FEEC4
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…

A chert flake of unknown date. The find is recorded because it is from an area where there is no naturally occuring chert. The opaque stone is mottled grey, with light and dark coloured bands. It is sub rectangular in plana nd triangular in section. One end is broken. There is no retouch, and indeed, it is not certain that the flake was deliberately struck. It is 26.5mm long, 15.7mm wide and 7.4mm thick. 2.88g.

Record ID: CORN-AB58F1
Object type: ADZE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Broken blade end of an adze of igneous rock, probably gabbroic greenstone, sub-square in plan, and lozenge-shaped in profile and in section. About half of the original tool survives, as it is missing its longer but tapering butt end that would have been hafted. The adze may have originally been about three times as long, judging from similar ethnographic parallels, in order to balance it with the wooden haft or handle. In profile the blade is plano-convex, with a defined yet scooped edge, suggesting that the tool was used as an adze for carving and smoothing the wood rather than an ax…

Object type: BATTLEAXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
A ground stone battle axe, probably of Scandinavian origin and dating from the Neolithic period. The axe, which survives intact, is of flattened-oval section, tapering to a wedge-shaped, downward-curving blade. The cylindrical socket is located close to the butt of the axe, where there is a rearward, hammer-like projection of circular section. The tool has been made from a medium-textured grey stone with a strand-like structure. Orangey-brown deposits on the surface of the implement are probably the result of the tool having been deposited in a wet environment. Length: 147.8mm; width…

Object type: PERFORATED OBJECT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
Mesolithic to Neolithic (8,300 to 4,500 BC) perforated object: stone pebble hammer or mace head. The pebble hammer is incomplete, approximately half remains, and this half is semi-cylindrical in plan, with an incomplete perforation along the straight broken edge. The perforation has an hour-glass profile and measures: 25mm diameter at its narrowest and 32mm deep. The stone is possibly hard sandstone. Due to the 'hardness' it resembles a 'Bunter quartzite' pebble. These are river worn pebbles of hard sandstone that are widely distributed throughout the Midlands. The pebble is a mottled…

Medieval honestone of Norwegian Ragstone. The cross-section is sub-rectangular with the narrow sides quite flat but the two broad faces irregularly convex. Close to the slightly damaged narrower end an encircling V-sectioned groove with overlapping ends was presumably to take a suspension cord (a drilled perforation is the more normal method). Below the groove the sides are straight and then gently diverge before a rounded lower end. Length 84mm. Width 21.5 - 28mm. Thickness 10.5 - 14.5mm. Weight 55.98g. Norwegian Ragstone was imported in quantity before the Conquest (Moore, D.T. and …
