The widest edge is also the thinnest, the incomplete stone being wedge-shaped and triangular in cross-section. Both faces display shallow grooves. Neolithic to Victorian in date, perhaps Prehistoric or Medieval/ Post-Medieval, given that hones between these dates tend to be long and narrow.

  • Thumbnail image of LANCUM-C26867

Record ID: LANCUM-C26867
Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Heavy, round stone, possibly granite. While the underside is round and has a very rough surface, the top is very smooth and almost indented. It is very likely that the stone has been used as a whetstone for, possibly, arrowheads, smaller spearheads, knives, axe blades, etc. However, the date of Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age has only been given tentatively - it may have been much younger than that. Since it was an unassociated find, it is difficult to attach a clear date to it.
