A complete unifacial quartzite handaxe, of Lower and / or Middle Palaeolithic dating (400, 000 BC to 50, 000 BC). The quartzite handaxe has been struck from a pebble core. It has been worked unifacially (one side). Approximately 50% of the pebble has been worked. Two large flakes have been removed, to create the main shape, with a couple of smaller flakes removed from the right hand side to create a slightly serrated edge. It measures 102.1 mm in length, 58.5 mm wide and 33.1 mm thick. It weighs 314 g. The quartzite is a mid brown colour, with a couple of curved red veins.

An incomplete whetstone or hone, of uncertain dating, but probably Roman to Post Medieval (AD 43 to AD 1800). The whetstone is sub rectangular in plan, and triangular in section. It has been made from a fine grained sedimentary sandstone or siltstone. An old diagonal break along the length is present on the reverse, giving the whetstone fragment the triangular shape. A figure of eight shaped perforation is present at the top, indicating that it had been created by the use of a drill on either side. The top of the whetstone has been bevelled on either side, to create a blunt top. The…

A complete struck / knapped quartzite subcordate biface handaxe of Lower and / or Middle Palaeolithic dating (c. 800, 000 BC to c. 40,000 BC). The handaxe exhibits working on both interior (upper) and exterior (lower) faces, making it a biface handaxe (Graf, A., 2004, 84). Due to rolling, it can not be approximated how much of the biface has been worked. The biface has a pointed oval shape with a curved butt. The butt has been hammered flat and is dark brown. More visible from the exterior face the right hand edge has a slight concave inwards towards the tip before rounding off. …

A complete possible hand axe of possible Lower Palaeolithic dating (c. 480,000 BC -c. 130,000 BC). The hand axe is sub rectangular in plan. and sub oval in plan. Both front and back exhibit a central ridge, with possible diagonal ridges radiating out towards the edge. The hand axe has been severely weathered, with multiple little 'pock' marks present over the surface. This weathering makes it hard to determine whether it has been deliberately worked or whether it is natural. It has been made from a quartzite or similar stone. It measures 96.33 mm in length, 79.62 mm wide and 30.…

Object type: PESTLE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A fragment of a polished stone axe which appears to have been reused as a pestle. The axe had an oval section, 52.6 x 32.6mm, one end of which shows a hackly fracture. The other ends shows the faceted wear typical of a stone pestle or hammer-stone. This has been locally damaged with the loss of a large chip. It has been made from a fine grained rock, grains of quartz being visible in a black matrix. It measures 61.89mm in length, 53.79mm wide and 32.89mm thick. It weighs 171.4 grams. Due to the functional nature of this artefact, it is hard to accurately date it. As it has been fou…

County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A single sub cuboid white stone probable tessera. The find consists of an sub cuboid tessera, probably made out of chalk or similar white stone. The top surface appears to be slightly polished which is the result of being walked over. The other surfaces are rough and irregular in shape. It measures 15.77mm long, 13.09mm wide and 13.23mm deep. It weighs 3.9 grams. The presence of tessera on a site indicates the probability of a mosaic pavement, and therefore a probable villa. If it definitely a tessera, then it is of Roman dating (1st to 4th …
