This is the first publication by The Yorkshire Querns Study which was established in 1985 to collect data on querns of all periods.

This study covers beehive querns of the later Iron Age and earlier Romano-British Period and promotes the use of quern evidence as an important resource for the study of settlement, technology, innovation, inter-group relations and religious expression.

Chapters cover transition from saddle to beehive querns, manufacturing, use and re-use of querns, the quern industries of North Yorkshire and South Durham, acquisition and deposition, cereal processing and the arable economy.
