  • Thumbnail image of DUR-FB7212

Record ID: DUR-FB7212
Object type: WHETSTONE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Stockton-on-Tees
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Possible whetstone of unknown date. It is sub-oval in plan with rounded edges. It is a rounded oval in cross-section also with all edges rounded. It is made from a brown-grey stone. There are linear grooves on all the surfaces, possibly caused by sharpening tools. It is difficult to say that this is definitely a whetstone as natural stones could be used for this purpose without much working to make them suitable, this appears to be in that group.

Record ID: DUR-9DFB21
Object type: LAMP
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: County Durham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Probable stone Medieval cresset lamp, from the 13-15th centuries. It has four rectangular faces with the top and bottom sides being sub-square. The top side has a circular hollow in which goes down about a third of the way. The base is flat with some grooves/scratch marks on, it is possible this is to do with use, rubbing on the base it was placed on. The top side has two bevelled corners at the front, this continues down almost the whole length of the front face. The front face then has two pyramidal protrusions just below the corners. At the base of the front face each corner …

Record ID: DUR-9DC667
Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Knapped, ground and polished axe head of probable later Neolithic date (2900-2100 BC). This axe is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and sub-oval (humped) in cross section. In plan the sides of the axe taper from the widest point at the cutting edge to a relatively narrow rounded butt. Width at widest- 55.04mm, at narrowest- 21.30mm. It is mostly complete with just a few chips missing from the edges. It has a white/cream patina and where the surface has chipped away a dark grey stone can be seen. This difference in the colours may be to do with patination from the time spent…

Record ID: DUR-D8C622
Object type: SHOT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: County Durham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Large stone cannon ball, Post Medieval in date. It is spherical and appears to have been burnt on one side. It appears to be made from a sandstone (but I am not a geologist) and is sandy coloured on one side and black on the other (presumably from burning). Natasha Ferguson who is studying for a PhD in Battlefield Archaeology saw an image of this object and comments 'They could be as early as 15th century, but yet if lead or iron supplies were low during the English Civil War in the 17th century they would use stone occasionally. I would put it as no later than m…
