Record ID: SUR-D373BB
Object type: POLISHED AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete polished hardstone axehead of Neolithic date. The axehead is 123.6mm in length and 61.3mm wide, with a lenticular side profile and an oval cross section 37mm thick. The butt is rounded and the sides flare slightly towards the blade end before narrowing into the curved cutting edge. One face demonstrates damage from weathering, whilst the other side remains smooth with visible striations from polishing. This suggests that the axehead has spent considerable time partially buried in riverbed sediment with only one face exposed to the moving water. The axehead is made from…

Object type: QUERN
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Buckinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of puddingstone probably representing a fragment of an Iron Age or early Roman puddingstone quern. Only a small chunk, bearing breaks on all faces, survives. Puddingstone is distinctive conglomerate containing rounded red flint pebbles within a siliceous matrix, the main sources of which lie in Hertfordshire. Research carried out by Major in Essex suggests that puddingstone rotary querns were produced here from at least 10 AD until around 160 AD and a similar chronology seems likely in Cambridgeshire (2004, 2-4). The fragment is 63.8mm long, 40.3mm wide, 33.9mm thick …

A fragment of rotary hand mill or quern, probably of Late Iron Age to Early Roman date. The fragment is just under half of the upper stone. It is sub-D shape in cross-section with uneven surfaces, rounded edges and corners, and is very worn. The underside is flat with a pitted surface and widespread scratching. The breaks each side are uneven and have the same wear as the other surfaces. The object measures 223mm in external diameter, 60mm maximum thickness and weighs 1882 grams. Ruth Shaffrey kindly states that: “The wide hopper is suggestive of LIA/early Roman but i…
