Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Large hone stone. Roughly rectangular in section, with evidence of heavy or long-term use. Material is a fine-grained micaceous garnet schist (almost certainly from the same imported source as other local Honestones in the Yorkshire Museum collection) suggesting a late Anglo-Scandinavian date. The heavy wear may suggest prolonged use into the medieval period.

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
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 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: 94g.

A whetstone or hone which is 117.3mm long, 52.7mm wide and 34.6mm thick. The stone is sub-rectangular in plan with rounded corners. It appears to be a water worn pebble which has not been deliberately shaped. One face has been used as a whetstone though. This face is very smooth and worn, but the other have not been used and are rougher. There is a semi-spherical hole in one side face of the stone, closer to one end. This appears to be natural as there are no striations within the hole to suggest deliberate working. It may be the result of an air bubble or pocket less durable material…
