Full description

1925. Stray Find.
Found by [1] at [2]:
1 Roman puddingstone quern fragment.
Information from (S1).
Amended by P. Watkins (HES), 29 August 2014.

In 1999 the Norwich Castle Museum retrospectively accessioned a number of objects that had previously been in the collection of [3]. These finds included a Roman puddingstone quern fragment that is listed as having been found at [4] (NWHCM : 1999.328.5.10). This may be the same object as the quern reportedly found in 1925, particularly as it appears that [3]'s collection included some material that had originally been found by other individuals.
