Record ID: CORN-EE5A2B
Object type: PESTLE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small fine-grained granite pestle, cylindrical in profile and circular in plan and section, with two convex ends. The pestle has been worked by pounding at both ends, probably on a hard surface, resulting in considerable abrasion and the loss of material in the order of a centimetre (Dr Roger Taylor pers comm). The length of the tool still fits perfectly within a hand's grip. There are dark grey patches on the surface of the pestle and fine grains of felspar and mica. The pestle would have been used with a mortar or cupped stone, but this tool was found on its own in the field, in an …

Object type: HAMMERSTONE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small igneous rock ball or hammerstone of coarsely foliated greenstone. The ball is circular in plan and ovate in profile and section, with pecking on the upper surface and a flattened weathered base. The shape appears to result predominantly from weathering but one side is smoothed and rounded and appears to have been used for grinding. The hammerstone is conveniently hand sized, like CORN-EE5A2B. Such pieces do turn up on domestic sites but not in any quantity compared to mullers and rubbers. It is quite possible that the wear on these objects has been caused by grinding pieces in t…

Object type: MACE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a quartzite ovoid macehead, semi-circular in plan and profile and plano-convex in section, with a mottled grey and 'port wine stain' colouration. Half of the perforation or shafthole remains, which is circular in plan and 20 mm in diameter. The shafthole would have held a wooden handle or haft to complete the mace, and would have been bored by using sand and a drill. The shafthole is an hourglass shape in profile, suggesting that it has been drilled from both sides, and is 38 mm in height. This shape might have improved hafting, especially if the wooden haft or handle was …

County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Medieval to Post Medieval cast copper alloy pot leg, dating to between AD 1200 and AD 1700. The object's size and shape suggests it may be a leg of a cauldron, or possibly an ewer.

The surface is very worn and abraded, and has a light green patina. Length: 22.64mm. Width: 24.08mm. Weight: 29.34g.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete and badly distorted copper alloy sheet either from a medieval buckle with a composite rigid plate or from a composite strap end with a forked spacer. There are two rivet holes and a grooved aperture at the concave inside or attachment edge. The other end is missing. The width, 23mm, suggests a buckle, but the fact that it tapers towards the break favours a strap end. Extant length 36mm. c.1300 - c.1450.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete greisen cup-marked stone, sub-square in plan and profile and plano-convex in section. The convex face has three dimples that are 25 mm in diameter, in a circular arrangement, which run up to the broken edges on both sides, suggesting that there were more cup-marks on the missing piece. The underside of the stone has been damaged with two deep linear grooves in a cross formation that reveals the quartz beneath the weathered and soiled surface. These cup-marked decorated stones are generally dated from the Late Neolithic to the Early Bronze Age because they are sometimes asso…
