Copper alloy whistle probably for hawking Post-medieval 1500 to 1800 AD. The whistle is circular in cross section. The mouth of the whistle is slight tapered and there is an oval half moon shaped opening just beneath the mouth. The base of the whistle is closed by a suspension loop. The body is decorated with a series of engraved lines in the form of creating a zig zag pattern. A number of whistles have been recorded by the PAS, however a direct parallel has not been found. It is likely that the dating of this whistle falls within the period 1500-1800. The whistle is associated with a…

A dark grey hawking whistle most likely made from tin alloy. Cylindrical in shape with a tapering end and broken extension piece, possibly for an attachment loop. A thin raised ring at the top seperates the body of the whistle from the mouth-piece. Immediately below this upper ring is the semi-circular aperture which allows the sound to escape. The object is mostly intact although here is damage to the end of the mouthpiece, and some distortion of shape from erosion processes.

A copper alloy tapered tube whistle of the 19th century. This style of whistle is also known as a Beaufort whistle. The main body of the whistle consists of a tapered copper alloy tube with sound holes on opposite sides towards the narrow end. The cap has some moulded decoration around the top of a raised rim and a (damaged) suspension loop attached directly to the centre of the cap, without a knop. Dating from around 1800 onwards, many of these whistles - particularly those used by police forces - were replaced by the 'Metropolitan' style whistle by around 1880. It has a greenish pat…

Small stone fragment, possibly the remains of a whetstone. Date uncertain. The surfaces are too worn and damaged to be abolutely certain that this was, indeed, an artefact. It may be natural. It is was a whetstone, the date range would be 2000BC-AD1900, as single stray finds of simple whetstones are notoriously difficult to date.
