Record ID: DEV-6E49A1
Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete whetstone of uncertain date and of a fine, greywacke sandstone. Rectangular in plan and sub-rectangualr in profile, the fragment terminates in worn breaks at either end. Due to abrasion to either face of the stone, in profile the whetstone tapers from 19.3mm wide at one end to 13.7mm at the other, with the narrowing being pronouncedly concave at one end and becoming more gradual below. This is more prominent on one face than the other. Dimensions: length 50.5mm; width 21.8mm; thickness 19.3mm; weight 29.03g. Whetstones were in use from the Bronze Age onwards, and w…

Object type: HAMMERSTONE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An unmodiefied beach cobble of metabasic igneous cornish "greenstone" utilised as a hammerstone, probably of prehistoric date, c. 8,000 BC - AD 43. The cobble is broady sub-trapezoidal in plan, oval in cross-section and piriform in profile, with the cobble being truncated by extensive, fairly localised battering damage on one end, now worn. Dimensions: length 85.4mm; width 67.5mm; thickness 51.8mm; weight: >300g. A similar hammerstone recorded on this database, CORN-2E4F62, references an unmodified "greenstone" hammerstone excavated within a Middle Bronze Age round house at Scar…

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A group of 33 peices of Prehistoric flint debitage; although the group is not uniform, it appears to have been sourced almost exlusively from beach or river pebbles. No flakes discussed here exhibit evidence of retouch. Part of larger assemblage of 43 peices; see also DEV-E95533, DEV-E88F5F. The assemblage includes a single primary flake (w: 15.01g), this is incomplete, missing its distal end. Struck from a pebble, with a surviving striking platform and diffuse bulb of percussion with no scars, of a pale grey flint with frequent inclusions. 15 secondary flakes (w: 74.98g, avg. w…

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A group of 4 Prehistoric worked flint flakes , part of a larger assemblage of 43 peices of debitage, see also DEV-E95533, DEV-E7AD5A. Those flakes discussed here all exhibit some evidence of retouch. Flakes 1-3 are all from beach pebbles, similar to the rest of the assemblage. 1. A large secondary flake of pale grey flint with very frequent paler inclusions, dark flecks and a very large ferrous inclusion. Retaining cortex on c. 45% of its dorsal face, covering the majority of the right half of the face. The strking platform survives with a relatively diffuse, unscarred bulb of perc…

Object type: CORE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Six Prehistoric flint core or core fragments, part of a larger assemblage of 43 peices of debitage, see also (DEV-E7AD5A, DEV-E88F5F). All are of pebble flint. 1. Secondary core, with cortex covering c. 55% of the surface. Of a pale grey/white flint with some ferrous inclusions. The core has a single striking platform, with a number of neat, parallel removals struck from it, some of the later being very small and potential bladelets if intentional. Weight: 39.06g. 2. Secondary core fragment, of a very similar flint and with natural breaks at its rear and bottom. One surviving st…

Object type: RING
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy ring with hexagonal cross section and slightly uneven thickness and width of unknown date. The exterior edge of the object has a slightly hexagonal plan, with two straightened parallel edges, one of which corresponding with internal wear. The object is undecorated but has prominent striations from filing in some places. Dimensions: length 30.4mm; width 28.9mm; thickness 3.1mm; weight 5.37g. Such rings are largely undatable and can be as early as Iron Age, but it is most likely a Medieval to Post-Medieval horse harness ring, possibly to link two straps given its …

Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An unidentified Lead alloy object, probably of fairly recent date, but potentially older, c. AD 1400-1900. The object is incomplete, comprising of a lead alloy disc with a single surviving attachment loop. The disc is decorated, all deeply incised, with a robed figure on horseback within a circular border. The border appears to have been used as a guide to cut away much of the original circumference, with, by the orientation of the decoration, between 2 and 9 o'clock missing. The weight of the object in combination with the positioning of the loop (which is not alligned with the decor…

A piece of Prehistoric flint debitage, probably dating to the Late Neolithic or Bronze Age, although a single flake cannot be dated with confidence. Tertiary flake; dark-grey/brown flint mottled with biege inclusions, the larger having a sandy texture. A striking platform partially survives at the proximal end with a diffuse bulb of percussion, there is an obliquely angled hinge approximately three quarters of the way down the length of the flake, in line with a large inclusion on the ventral face. Two sub-parallel blade-like flake removal scars survive on the dorsal face, one was …
