From the ladies of the Medieval Still Room;
Mortar and pestles were an indispensable piece of medieval equipment both in the home and in workshops. Examples have been found made of stone ware, wood, stone, and cast from metal such as brass, copper and lead. This mortar and pestle would be useful for grinding dry spices and herbs in the kitchen or the still room.
