Monkwearmouth, Anglo-Saxon architectural fragment
An architectural fragment in coarse-grained yellow sandstone, 11 cm high x 7.5 cm wide x 3.5 cm deep. Probably the corner of a shaft or building stone, with a grooved moulding. The stone appears to have been recut and there are traces of fine mortar with a soft lime-washed surface covering the surface of the primary paint, which is a dense white covering over-painted with red. It was found in 1967 and is thought to date to between the 7th and 8th centuries A.D.
