c.1800-1500 B.C. A rare fragment from an Early-Mid Bronze Age Schist "Whetstone" found many years ago on North Dale Farm, Yorkshire and from an old Canadian private collection. This segment is approximately half of the original whetstone, drilled through for suspension and probably carried, suspended from the waist on a cord; the whetstone being made from a mildly abrasive hard stone would have been used for honing, polishing and re-sharpening of the blade edges on early bronze age axes and weapons, in good overall condition and a rare and seldom offered Bronze Age artefact, 84mm long x 31mm wide x 19mm thick.
