Record ID: SUR-DB0B6D
Object type: STATUE
Broad period: MODERN
County: Surrey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment from a stone statue or ornamental sculpture, 144.3mm in length, 80.1mm wide and 1.1kg in weight. The fragment comprises the heal, instep and around 2/3 of a naked right foot of a figure, carved from a dark fine grained igneous rock, possibly basalt. The pose suggests the figure had its leg bent forwards, with the rear of the foot raised off of the ground and the toes bent and connecting to a pedestal base or other object, of which a small portion remains attached to the underside of the foot.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete stone Neolithic axehead (c. 4000 - c. 2200 BC), missing its butt end. Approximately two-thirds of the object survives. The axe is made from greenstone. It has suffered some plough damage but there is little sign of wear on the cutting edge. Overall, the axehead measures c.110 mm long, c. 68 mm wide and 35 mm thick. It weighs 390 g. This record has been produced based on a written record and photographs by Robert Smith of Sherwood Archaeology Society.

~~A Neolithic ground and polished axehead. The implement has been extensively chipped and ground into a long elongated sub-rectangular shape in plan that tapers from the cutting edge to the butt which terminates in a rounded point. The blade on the forward edge has been ground into an asymmetrical crescent, this is also the only section to have been polished. The stone is a dark green with an extensive creamy mottling. The axe dates from between circa 3500 BC to 2100BC

Object type: POLISHER

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Salmon coloured pebble, possibly quartzite [non-specialist identification by MF]; rubber or polisher. A small oval-ended pebble which is neatly broken at one end, and rubbed or polished flat there. The object is smoothed by handling as well as by wear on this working face. The casual use of glacial erratics as smoothers and sharpeners is especially characteristic of later Prehistory into the early medieval period. However, a hammer stone in a superficially similar material was reported along with this object bearing the traces of its use in flintworking, and promotes an extension of th…

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Coarse-grained pink quartzite [non-specialist identification by MF] possible hammer stone, as kindly suggested by the finder. An oval pebble with flat sides, possibly formed and smoothed by rolling in water or by Aeolian 'desert glossing', with one flat and three battered zones around its edge, the latter revealing crystalline structures. The object appears attractive and may well have been selected, perhaps from glacial drift, for its fleshy colour. The localised abrasion could have arisen from relatively light hard hammer working, a technique especially characteristic of the Neolithi…

County: Gwynedd

A broken axe head. The find represents the cutting edge end of a Neolithic polished axe head belonging to the Group VII (Graig Lwyd) classification. It is sub-rectangular in plan; tapering towards a transverse break at the point the axe was likely hafted. It seems likely this break occurred in antiquity. In section it is sub-ovate with flattened sides. The blade, mostly intact, bares evidence of use, and has retained a defined edge. The faces of the axe are defined by marks and fractures which vary in intensity. One face bears deeper scars than the other. The axe belongs to the Grou…

A fragment of quern-stone of probably Roman date. The fragment is sub triangular in shape and it is a segment of a circular millstone, from the central perforation to the outer edge. The upper face is rough and slightly convex. Traces of a central circular hole on the millstone remains on one side of the fragment. This hole measures 14.7 mm in deep before sinking further for 29 mm to the central perforation of millstone.The lower face is flat and has had minimal working. The whole piece measures 136.1 mm in length, 159.7 mm in width, in thickness 44.5 mm at the centre and 57.2 mm alon…

County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete chalk bead of uncertain date. The bead is spherical and formed of a probable natural chalk fossil, perhaps similar to coral. A roughly central drilled hole is present and there is a small break to one edge. The object is 7.4mm tall, 13.5mm in diameter and weighs 1.4g. The perforation is 4.8mm in diameter. The object does not display any clearly diagnostic features and was recovered removed from any context. As such, it is not possible to date this object.

A complete worked chalk object, possibly a pendant, of uncertain date. The object is sub-ovate with a wide lower curved end and narrower upper end. The narrower end has a hole, possible for suspension, which has been drilled from both sides. Faint linear striations can be determined on both sides though are likely too shallow to be purposefully made and may be a result of post-depositional damage. The object is 48.2mm long, 38.2mm wide, 11mm thick and weighs 23.5g. The perforation is 5.8mm in diameter A similar object from a chalk pit in Hessle, East Yorkshire is held in the collecti…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete fragment of polished Neolithic axehead. This axehead has been broken in half along the linial profile so that only one side of the profile survives. The axehead has also been broken transversely to the butt-end and blade-end. This means that the original shape and cross-sectional shape and profile shape of the artefact has been lost. At least one hinge fracture is present. Damage is also present along both edges.

Slightly damaged polished stone axehead of Neolithic date (c. 4000 - 2350 AD). The axehead is formed from grey stone, possibly Langdale tuff. The surface of the object has been weathered and is rough and pitted, to a greater degree on one side than the other. The more weathered side is also darker in colour. There is some brown surface accretion on both sides. The object is broadly rectangular in shape with a lentoid section. It widens slightly at one end and narrows into an unsymmetrically curved cutting edge. The other (butt) end is badly chipped and damaged. The object is 153.5mm in…

This piece has been photographed in the wrong direction giving the impression it is an end scraper, however this end is actuallt the proximal end and no modification has taken place after removal. The butt is plain and quite small and the distal end is large and flat and displays evidence of it being a platform itself. The piece has been struck from a bidirectional blade core.
