Collection report: Rotary querns in the Museum of Archaeology, University of Stavanger

The collection of 142 prehistoric rotary querns stones and fragments at the Museum of Archaeology, University of Stavanger (AM) is the largest in the country. More than half of the total (85), from secure chronological contexts, were retained for this detailed study. Due to this large quantity, the assemblage is well suited for the analysis of the typology, chronology, rock types and the methods of manufacture of the earliest types of rotary querns known in Norway.
