  • Thumbnail image of CORN-4EDA88

Record ID: CORN-4EDA88
Object type: HAMMERSTONE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small fine igneous rock ball, probably greenstone but awaiting geological comment by Roger Taylor. The ball is circular in plan and ovate in profile and section, with pecking all over the upper surface and a flattened base, perhaps through grinding or hammering. Such pieces do turn up on domestic sites but not in any quantity compared to mullers and rubbers. On these objects the waterworn cobble surfaces are all fresh and unweathered, appropriate for selection from a beach during the Neolithic. The beach selection would ensure hard enduring pieces. It is quite possible that the wear o…

Record ID: YORYM-530EF3
Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete stone axehead of Neolithic date. The axehead is sub-oval in both plan and section with extensive damage to one side. One face is smooth and polished while the other has lost much of its original surface due to damage resulting in a rough irregular appearance. The cutting edge of the axe is still fairly sharp with two small damaged notches to either side. The axe is comprised of a grey-green fine-grained siliceous tuff - a sedimentary volcanic rock possibly from the Great Langdale quarries in Cumbria. This stone was most probably chosen for its colour and fineness which…

Record ID: YORYM-543D87
Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete stone axehead of Neolithic date. The axehead is triangular in plan and oval in section with extensive damage along one edge. Both faces are largely smooth and polished however both have numerous chipped and broken areas. The cutting edge of the axe remains largely in tact and is still fairly sharp. The axe is comprised of a grey-green fine-grained siliceous tuff - a sedimentary volcanic rock possibly from the Great Langdale quarries in Cumbria. This stone was most probably chosen for its colour and fineness which allowed it to be highly polished. It is likely that axes…
