A possible hammerstone made on part of a tapering 'horn' shaped nodule of mottled grey flint. The bulbous asymmetric end of the piece may originally have been utilized as a core. A series of scars from plunging flakes are visible, struck from one face. The exposed end has subsequently been battered, abrading its edges. The most likely cause of this is use as a hammerstone or similar 'pounder'. The tapering end retains weathered chalky cortex. Date: Late Neolithic to early bronze age (probably) Dimensions: 119mm x 61mm 51.2mm Weight: 399g

A large flint hammerstone. A rounded piece of mid grey flint with heavy off-white patina and iron staining.. There are areas of use wear (battering) on much of the surface with a few small unused areas on the sides where the object was held in use. This object is probably prehistoric, but such stones have also been found in later contexts (e.g. Roman) and it is difficult to be certain of the date. Date: Prehistoric (Mesolithic to Bronze Age) - c 8300 - 800 BC Dimensions: 79 mm x 72 mm Weight: 403 g

A large chert hammerstone. A rounded piece of a dark grey Portland limestone chert nodule. There are areas of thick , off-white nodule cortex remaining and an area of loght grey patination, much of which has been removed by flaking as result of use of the hammerstone. There is a girth band of use wear (battering) with unused areas on the sides where the object was held in use. This object is probably prehistoric, but such stones have also been found in later contexts (e.g. Roman) and it is diffucult to be certain of the date.
