Record ID: CORN-186CD3
Object type: MULLER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fine-grained muscovite granite double-sided muller or rubbing stone. The muller is oval in plan, with one rounded complete end and one broken end, and flat in section. Both faces of the muller are flat and smooth as they were used for rubbing, but one side may have originally been convex so that it could be held and pushed across a base for grinding. The muller would have been used with a larger saddle quern to grind grain between the stones to make flour. The granite is fine grained and contains muscovite or mica, tourmaline and felspars (see report below). The soft felspars would wor…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A scraper fabricated on a natural flake of mottled, orange-brown flint. The flake is sub-triangular in plan with a large area of off-white cortex on one face, the opposing face being free of cortex. The flake has been worked across one side using invasive, scaled, low-angle retouch to create a concave scraping edge. The flake is also worked at one end to produce a wide point using short, scaled, semi-abrupt retouch. This crude type of tool, utilising a natural flake, is typical of flint working during later Prehistory.

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of copper alloy found in a burnt mound dating at least to the Early to mid Bronze Age 2150 to 1150BC. The copper is not sheet metal and appears to have been cast as one piece as part of a larger object. It is not yet known what this object was. It should be possible to refine the dating once the charcoal samples are dated from the burnt mound which was the subject of an evaluation associated with treasure case 2016 T518 database number LANCUM-A5AF1B. The length is 48mm, the width is 35mm.
