The responses to our last 'button feature' are now on-line.
To follow the buttons we have a real 'brain teaser' which has us all completely baffled! Excavated from a 19th century context, with the corrosion removed and the metal cleaned up, the object is in relatively good condition and appears to be made of steel and weighs exactly 1 kg. It has a named stamped on the side with individual letter stamps and reads M_ _ LAN underneath which is LONDON.
Is it possible to have a two ended chisel blade? We think not! But what could it have been produced for?
