Record ID: SWYOR-095CA7
Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A rectangular length of lightweight, dark, fine-grained stone that has probably been used as a whetstone (hone or sharpening stone) as there are a number of shallow grooves on three of the surfaces. It is difficult to date with certainty but it probably dates from the Early-Medieval to Medieval periods. It is pierced at one end and a copper-alloy rivet remains in the piercing. At each end of the rivet is a small section of copper-alloy plate, probably forming a suspension mount, most of which has broken away in antiquity and is missing. The opposite end of the stone to the suspension …

Schist Possible Hone fragment. An irregular fragment from a mullion of possibly Norwegian schist. One broad side may be flattened and grooved, and the opposite side appears dished. This stone was the predominant material used for whetstones in medieval England. Earlier examples were imported as finished or nearly finished items, but later material includes fragments of rock broken along its bedding planes with finishing left to the purchaser; in this form perhaps arriving as a ballast cargo for vessels engaged in the Northern trade. An origin from glacial drift is also possible as t…
