Record ID: HESH-A4D218
Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete whetstone of probable Early Medieval or Medieval date (c.800 – 1400). The whetstone is formed from a very fine sedimentary mica rich sandstone or siltstone and bedding planes are clearly visible in the profile. The whetstone is broadly sub-rectangular in plane with slightly tapering sides, and is also sub-rectangular in cross section. The edges are slightly bevelled. A relatively small suspension hole has been drilled in the upper part of the whetstone; this has been achieved by drilling (probably using a bow saw / drill) from both edges which has created an egg-timer shap…

Two body sherds from pottery vessels, probably ‘tubby’ cooking pots of late Iron Age or Early Roman Date (100 BC – 100 AD). One sherd is broken into two pieces. The fabric of the sherds is a relatively hard earthenware containing moderate Malvernian rock fragments, commonly up to 2.0mm in size and fine quartz sand. Fabric number 3. The fabric colour is a mottled orange grey. The diameter of the vessel / vessels cannot be estimated due to the size of the sherds. There is also not enough of the body of the pot surviving to give an estimation of the depth or overall form/shape of th…

Through the centre of the quatrefoil is an irregular sub-rectangular hole, it is positioned at the junction between the four circles. The hole measures 5.4mm x 3.6mm. Each of the four circles differs in size, although they seem to be ordered with the largest example (diame…

Fragment of a piece of later prehistoric metalwork, most probably a later Iron Age terret ring. The fragment is irregular in plan and cross section; it curves and tapers slightly from a rectangular sectioned bar to an oval section at an angle of less than 30%. If it were from a terret ring this would fit with the transition from base to loop. The patina is a mid brown colour and has substantially laminated revealing the metal beneath which has corroded. The fragment measures 31.2mm length, 8.7mm width and is 6.9mm thick; it weighs 7.31 grams

Silver toggle or fitting with globular knop on each side. Narrow body expanding at each end into a globule, creating an overall dumb-bell shape. Globules are of un-uniform size. Copper-alloy and bone examples of similar objects have been dated to the Iron Age, a similar shaped toggle can be found in Read (2005). An Iron Age object of this type is extremely rare. Analysis results of the toggle show that it is 97% silver the rest being copper, with traces of lead and gold; the amount of gold indicates that this toggle is not of Iron Age date, the manufacturing technique correspond…
