  • Thumbnail image of HAMP-672531

Record ID: HAMP-672531
Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of possible whetstone or hone of uncertain dating (from the Roman period onwards, c.AD 43 to 1800). It is rectangular in shape and square in cross-section, being broken at both ends (narrowing from 29.29x28.70 to 27.21x27.81). It measures 65.09mm in length and weighs 86g. The stone is porous with micaceous inclusions, probably a coarse-grained sandstone and of the same material as HAMP-6748C7, which was found with it. The object itself is barely worn. Helen Rees, Winchester Museums, comments the stone type would be unusual for a whetsonte or hone (pers.comm. October 2014).
