Stone pendant whetstone of probable early medieval date (c. 800 - 1100 AD). The whetstone is a long rectangular cuboid in shape with a surface that has been worn smooth through use. A rectangular flat projection of stone extends from the top; this is perforated with a circular hole so that the object could be worn as a pendant. The whetstone is dark purple in colour. It is 52.55mm in length, 13.93mm in width and 6.87mm in thickness. It weighs 8.79g. Portable whetstones of this form were used in the Bronze Age as well as the early medieval and medieval periods. An early medieval date i…

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…

An incomplete whetstone, dating to the early Medieval to Medieval period (c.AD 700-1400). The object is broadly rectangular in plan, and triangular in cross section. It is dark brown in colour with very fine micaerous inclusions. A number of linear striations are present on all sides which reveal a light coloured stone underneath. It has a worn break at each terminal, and it is likely that it was pierced at one end and the break has exposed the aperture. It is likely that this hone would have been suspended around the neck by means of the hole at one terminal. Stuart Ogilvy (geolog…

An incomplete whetstone of probableEarly-Medieval date. The stone is cylindrical in profile and circular in section constructed from a fine grained sandstone with a high mica component. One end of the object appears to terminate in an old break, all other surfaces are smoothed. While this form of whetstone is fairly ubiquitous throughout history its association with securely dated Early-Medieval material would suggest a comparable date for this example.

A complete whetstone probably dating to the early-medieval period. The whetstone is rectilinear in plan and relatively square in section. One end narrows slightly, each end is angled slightly, parallel to each other. The stone is a fine-grained, micaceous rock, probably schistose in origin. There appears to be no garnet present or clear schistoze texture which has been clearly apparent in nearly all of the other whetstone seen through the Yorkshire FLO office. The surface has badly damaged, most of the marks are relatively new which probably indicates plough damage. This whetstone pro…

A large fragment of whetstone, which is probably early-medieval in date. Numberous whetstones made in this material have been found in the East Ridings of Yorkshire in Viking contexts. The stone from which the whetstone has been carved is a fine-grained stone such as Mica Schist, sourced in Scandinavia. The stone has been chipped and ground into the whetstone shape and has large chamfered edges. The chamfered edges are still very obvious. Weight: 85g.

A stone hone of unknown date. The sub-rectangular hone is slightly waisted in the centre and is probably incomplete. It is made from a brown hard mud or siltstone with fine grains and is smooth to touch. The sides of the hone have silvery inclusions and black markings that are not present on the front or back face. The hone tapers in thickness at one end and has a circular perforation (diameter is 5.5mm) that has been drilled from both faces. One face has much more wear than the other with worn grooves and marks. The surviving length is 90.8mm, the width is 33.3mm, the thickness is 20.…
