UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT

Unique ID: NMS-80C893

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Unidentified object, perhaps a floor tile or wet stone. Sandstone or quartzite, rectangular-sectioned, two long sides forming a right-angle, two short (and perhaps broken) sides, the fifth side deeply concave. The concave edge and one face are very smooth as if worn. Broken relatively recently, now in two conjoining pieces.

Despite the suggestive shape it seems unlikely to be a tile cut to fit around a curved edge as the edge is so well smoothed.

Measuring 95 x 95mm. 18mm thick at maximum.
