Record ID: NLM-7E98C3
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
Green Volcanic Tuff from the Langdale Pikes. Polished Stone axehead of Group 6 (from visual examination). Axehead of elongated teardrop form with a sharp crescentic cutting edge whence it tapers along its length to a narrow rounded butt. A lentoid section at the cutting edge gives way to a flat-sided form behind it, with flattened and polished areas along the edges where the sides of the axe meet. This was presumably intended to prevent an originally sharp aris from cutting through a tied hafting. A D-shaped chip towards the cutting edge on one side has possibly been smoothed but not …

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
Pale Grey Stone, probably Volcanic Tuff and possibly from Pembrokeshire (possibly Group 23) to judge from its similarity to a provenanced axehead displayed at North Lincolnshire Museum. Axehead. Large elongated oval axehead of lentoid section with a crescentic cutting edge, tapering to a pointed - the end appears to have been recently chipped - butt. The upper and lower edges of the axehead bear a flattened zone extending from the back of the cutting edge almost to the butt. This is presumably to enable a tied hafting without risking sharp arises cutting through lashings. The object i…

Object type: POT BOILER
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Doncaster
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
Seven fire-cracked cobbles; stones which have been subject to high heat causing them to crack, break and discolour to a pink hue. Similar objects from the same farm have been recorded as pot boilers, but it is also possible that these stones were used to form hearths, probably for an industrial process.

Record ID: NLM-2B6FA8
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
Greenstone polished axe, reworked into waisted form. Polished Group 6 axehead fragment comprising a crescentic cutting edge and c.30mm of the original sides of the axe meeting its ends. Beyond this point, pecking has transformed a probable originally oval form of lentoid section by forming a marked waist or in-swing. This might have facilitated a tied fastening, though its security was perhaps compromised by loss or damage to the butt end, which is probably truncated and certainly fractured. The waisted form recurs on a polished axe dated to between the Later Neolithic and Early Bronz…

Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A printing face from a post-Medieval to Modern seal matrix. The matrix comprises an oval cameo within a copper-alloy frame. The stone, translucent and deep orange in colour, is probably a banded agate. A Classical bust has been deeply cut into the surface of this stone. This image, which shows a young male facing left (when printed), wearing a lion skin on his head, is almost certainly a depiction of Hercules/Herakles. A deep groove extends around the vertical face of the rim, broken only by the two holes (one at either end) by which the rest of the matrix would have been attached,…

Object type: MACE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Mesolithic or Neolithic mace head or pebble hammer fashioned from a naturally water worn pebble of mid-brown Quartzite with an hour glass perforation pecked and drilled from both sides. The hole measure 32mm diameter on one face and 26mm on the other, and narrows to 12mm at the centre. There are some areas of wear to the edges though this may be due to natural forces. A rather large example from Norfolk found at Bawdeswell is recorded on the PAS database (NMS-F78EB4). The function of these 'mace heads' is enigmatic with interpretations ranging from symbols of power or status to dig…

Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Three hone stone fragments, all with both ends missing and perhaps all medieval. Two are very short (35 and 39mm), of trapezoidal cross-section and affected by fire. The larger piece (length 184mm), of irregular ovoid cross-section and probably of Norwegian Ragstone. This stone was imported in quantity before the Conquest (Moore, D.T. and Ellis, S.E. in Rogerson and Dallas 1984, 107-11) and in Norfolk remained "the preferred material for hones during the late medieval period" (Mills, J.M. with Moore, D. in Shepherd Popescu 2009, 709). Combined weight 348g.

Object type: POLISHED AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Derbyshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Incomplete and damaged ground and polished stone axehead of Neolithic date. The axe is a tapered sub-rectangle in plan, flaring outwards towards the rounded cutting edge, tapering towards the butt, and is a pointed oval in cross-section, bith lengthways and side to side. Both faces of the axe have chips which are more invasive along the edges, the weathering of these chips suggests various dates of occurence with some being relatively recent. The stone is of fine-grained type and a pale beige-green colour, possibly of Lake District (Langdale, Cumbria) origin. Axes of this type are dat…

Object type: SPINDLE WHORL
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Silty sedimentary stone spindle whorl, ranging from pink to brown in colour, with small flecks of mica, so it may be a micaceous argillaceous shale. The whorl is circular in plan and sub-rectangular in profile, with parallel faces apart from a thinner edge on both sides where a layers of the shale have broken away through wear or damage. The central aperture is circular in plan and cylindrical in profile and measures 9 mm in diameter and 10 mm deep. The central position of the aperture would enable the whorl to be balanced while used in the spinning process. The aperture has concentri…

Object type: AXEHEAD ROUGHOUT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A stone axehead roughout made from Langdale epidotized tuff stone and dating from the Neolithic Period, 4000 BC - 2350 BC. The roughout is ovoid in plan and S-shaped in profile, with a sub-rectangular section. The roughout has knapped edges and it is roughly axe-shaped, but it was not completed. The faces are still bulbous and the surface is rough: is has not been polished. Work was discontinued and the roughout was discarded for unknown reasons. The roughout can be compared to LANCUM-5856A2 and LANCUM-799F15 which note that tuff is formed from compressed volcanic ash and has a …

Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An incomplete and worn stone object, probably a whetstone or hone, of uncertain date. It is missing parts of both ends due to old breaks and demonstrates evidence of use-wear and post-depositional corrosion. The object is rectangular in form and section, formed from a fine grained and micaceous stone, probably a schist or similar. At the top is a central circular perforation that is countersunk on both faces suggesting it was drilled from both directions. One side of the top is missing due to old breaks.

Object type: QUERN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An incomplete upper half from a volcanic lava stone quern of Post-Medieval date. Approximately 45% of the quern survives, preserving part of the incomplete central circular(?) aperture. The grinding surface has incised radial grooves with some uneven wear. To one side, at the central aperture, is a sub-rectangular depression with flaring sub-circular outer edge that may have enabled attachment of the quern to a central iron spindle. Vertical grooves are visible on parts of the edges, but these are mostly worn or missing due to use- or post-depositional wear. The non-grinding surface i…
