Carved Stone Ball, Sanday, Orkney 3D Model
This Neolithic carved stone ball was found on the island of Sanday, Orkney, but its precise findspot is not known. Manufactured from sandston, it exhibits c.27 low rounded knobs; the precise number is difficult to determine.
This artefact formed part of James Walls Cursiter’s (1851-1939) extensive collection of prehistoric artefacts from Orkney and Shetland. This collection was donated to the Hunterian Museum c.1914.
The white ‘884/6’ label indicates that it was exhibited by Cursiter at the 1911 Scottish Exhibition, Glasgow.
