A group of seven stones, believed to be votive offerings found in a garden in Leytonstone, London. There are three flints resembling animals' teeth: a light brown one, a slightly darker brown one with a sharp curve, and a grey-brown one with a broad base. The four bigger stones, one is black in colour and pyramid shaped, one is dark red in colour, one is a caramel-coloured flint which may have been a working tool, and the last is a grey, bulbous stone, with possible tool marks on the base.
