Rubber (worked stone), Camp Hill

Found by a Major General Scott-Elliot in 1960 at Camp Hill, Trohoughton, this object is known as a rubber, and is a type of worked stone. Rounded with a flattened base, it is composed of angular fine grained (mainly grey) fragments in a red sandstone matrix.                   This rubber was found at Camphill, a hill fort defended by two stone faced ramparts and steep ditches. When it was excavated in 1960 the remains of timber buildings were found inside the ramparts.
