Writing Slate - Stone, circa 1880 (Fragment) Archaeology Reg. No: LL 26991

Summary:
This fragment of writing slate was excavated at Casselden Place in 2003. There are guide lines etched into the surface.

Writing implements, found throughout Little Lon, indicate that writing was a commonplace activity. The pens, pencils and inkwells are a tantalizing reminder of words forgotten long ago.
