Worked object probably for use as a whetstone. The object is rectangular in plan and sub-rectangular in cross-section. Each end of the object is slightly rounded.

A possible whetstone of uncertain date. The object is rectangular in plan and in cross-section. The sides and edges of the object have been smoothed down. Striations can be seen on one face of the object. Whetstones or hones are hard to date due to the fact that as it is a function artefact, shapes or styles do not tend to change much over time. It is possible that this artefact was made between the later Iron Age and the Modern period (200 BC to 1800 AD).

An incomplete possible whetstone of uncertain date. The stone is lentoid in profile and circular in section constructed from fine grained sandstone with a high mica component. Each end of the object has broken away. A deep linear groove measuring 5.16mm in width runs transverse across the centre of one face, possibly caused by sharpening tools. This form of whetstone is fairly ubiquitous throughout history. It is difficult to say that this is definitely a whetstone as natural stones could be used for this purpose without much working to make them suitable. Whetstones are known to h…

An incomplete whetstone, dating to the early Medieval to Medieval period (c.AD 700-1400). The object is broadly triangular in plan tapering in width from the sub-oval pierced end to a rounded point. The wider end or top of the object is pierced with a circular perforation measuring 5mm in diameter. This appears to have been drilled from each face. It is likely that this hone would have been suspended around the neck by means of the hole at one terminal. A fragment of the stone has broken away in recent times at the holed terminal end. Thin horizontal striations or scratches are vis…
