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…
