An incomplete possible whetstone or hone of uncertain dating (from the Roman period onwards, c.AD 43 to 1800).

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).

Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete whetstone or hone of probable Scandinavian (Norwegian) origin and made of schist. The whetstone is sub-rectangular in plan and cross-section, with one finished edge and face, both slightly concave in profile, the other edges being smooth but bumpy and unfinished. Both short edges appear broken. Towards one end a 'corner' is cut off. This end has a piercing, central between the cut-off corner and the finished edge, in a wide U-shaped groove. It is countersunk from both faces, measuring c.5.8mm diameter on the outside and c.4mm at the centre. Presumably this was for suspe…

Record ID: HAMP-E48B53
Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A whetstone of Norwegian ragstone, late Saxon or medieval in date. The stone is sub-rectangular in cross-section with rounded corners. It tapers from the plain, flat end to an old break at the other end. Each side is slightly concave from wear. It measures 22.6mm by 20.1mm at the complete end, and 17.5mm by 11.1mm at the break. A very similar example was found in a 15th- to 16th-century pit in Winchester, but it may have been residual (Rees et al., 326-327; ref. 2441).
