Querns and millstones in the South-East and Surrey: Ruth Shaffrey

Tuesday, 5 March, 2019 - 19:30 to 21:00

Ruth Shaffrey is a worked stone specialist currently working at Oxford Archaeology. She has reported on querns from several Surrrey sites and recently had a paper published in Surrey Archaeological Collections, 110, 71-142  Roman Ewell: a review of the querns and millstones and implications for our understanding of the organisation of grain processing.

Ruth will talk about querns and millstones in the South-East and Surrey, including Lodsworth querns from West Sussex. She will discuss their designs and dating, and  how this can all be used to help us understand food supply.
