Whetstone, High Kelton Farm, Camp Hill, Trohoughton

High Kelton Farm, Camp Hill, Trohoughton
Found by a Major General Scott-Elliot in 1960 at Camp Hill, Trohoughton, this whetstone is a typical example of the type. Whetstones, made of stone, were used for the sharpening of knives. Fine grained with a long rectangular shape, with one complete long side lost (exposing a rough fractured surface) this whetstone has softly rounded edges and ends.   This whetstone 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.
