A stone incomplete whetstone of uncertain date, probably late Early Medieval - early Post Medieval. This whetstone is rectangular in shape, flaring towards one end (from 20.00mm to 26.53mm), and wedge-shaped in profile. The other end is broken and missing. One of the sides has been deliberately scored with very regular lozenge-shaped cross-hatching; the other side has the natural striations of the stone.

A Post Medieval – Modern stone whetstone (16th – 19th century). The whetstone has a D-shaped cross-section and there is a circular perforation just off-centre in the upper third of the object. Part of the flat long surface is missing and one end is damaged. There is no evidence of use-wear polishing but this may have been lost with the damage to the surface, or the object was never used.

A Medieval – Post Medieval stone whetstone (AD 1400 – 1750). The stone is an irregular rectangle in plan with both the large surfaces showing heavy polishing through use. There are transverse irregular grooves cutting across the polished surfaces. These may be scars caused by testing the sharpness of the blades, or caused by flaws in the stone, or they may indicate the stone was reused for another function after its use as a whetstone. The edges are very abraded which probably occurred post deposition. Along one side there is a large, shallow, vertical groove; this possible ac…
