A possible Middle Saxon object whetstone. The object is smaller than most whetstones, perhaps indicating it was used for fine working of objects. It is rectangular in section with a facet on all corners. It is broken at the thicker end, but tapers to a point at the terminal. Fine diagonal grooves are visible along both of the side faces but not the upper and lower faces, nor the facets.

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible whetstone. The object is rectangular in plan and also in cross-section with one smooth surface, and all others being slightly irregular. The irregularity of the other sides is more akin to the way in which the stone would probably naturally break, rather than having been intentionally made into a whetstone. The stone is cream-yellow in colour.
