A-Z Challenge 2013: Q is for Quernstone

A piece of knowledge for you that is more historical than genealogical: the quern or quernstone was the forerunner of the millstone and was used for grinding corn (millstones were used more often in water-powered or wind-powered mills).

It is most frequently unearthed as part of an archaeological dig centered on Roman or Romano-British sites.
