Saxon quern stone

I was contacted by the Acle Reenactment Society based in Northumberland who wished to demonstrate a quern stone that was as close a replia as possible to a 7th Century version.  It was necessary to contact local and National museums and archelology institutions to gather reference and details for the design.

  • Material Red Lazonby sandstone
  • Client Acle reenactment Society
  • Location Northumberland
  • Size 41 cm Dia.
