Eyes only Groovy Stone

Post by Dave The Slave » Wed Dec 12, 2018 4:26 pm

During Mondays` detecting trip picked up a grooved stone fragment, near one of the signals. Not seen anything like this before. Definitely stone and not bone, 17mm x 8mm has 6 distinct grooves.

Has anyone else seen this type of occurrence before ?
Also picked up to me, an unusual piece of pottery from a field that has not yielded much pottery apart from the odd bit of common red tile pieces.
Very highly glazed dimple effect inside.

Pottery appears to have been made with an inner layer and outer layer.

Any thoughts appreciated, once again will take along to FLO for a hands on opinion to age.
Cheers all ::g
Dave.

Never occurred to me, could be a fossil.
Looks to be, as you suggest.
Thanks ::g
