A tertiary flint blade, of Early Mesolithic or Early Neolithic date (9000-6500BC/4000-3300BC) which has completely recorticated and is now white in colour with the exception for a small recent chip which shows the dark grey to black flint below. Bulb and point of percussion visible as are conchoidal ripple marks. The dorsal face shows removal of parallel blades. Possible short parallel to sub-parallel abrupt to semi-abrupt retouch on the proximal dorsal and proximal dorsal mesal edge.

Record ID: CAM-7DCAEE
Object type: MATTOCK
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete antler mattock of a style typical in Mesolithic artefacts. These hafted tools, although referred to as mattocks, can also be used as a pick-like or hammer tools. Similar examples have previously found in England including at the site of Star Carr. The example recorded here would have been a hammer variant. It is now incomplete and no haft remains. The remains of this artefact weights 133.64g. It has a length of 135.3mm, maximum width of 44.7mm and thickness of 67.2mm. The base of the antler is present but worn with only approximately one-quarter of the circumference h…

Record ID: CAM-CF34F6
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A tertiary flint blade. The presence of a very slight bulb of percussion suggests soft hammer production. A conchoidal fracture can be seen on the dorsal face. Two other angles have also been struck from the strike platform forming a sub-triangular cross-section across the blade. The stike platform is unclear suggesting that it may have been chipped or damaged during deposition. Two parallel blades have been removed from this piece of flint, one half seems to have been removed in two sections, one above the other. There is no evidence of retouch. The blade is thin enough to be translu…
