Record ID: HESH-0E915B
Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Gloucestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete snapped flint blade of probable later Mesolithic or early Neolithic date (6000BC - 3500BC). The flint tool, probably best described as a knife, is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and sub-triangular in cross section. The blade has been snapped and the point is lost - the break is unpatinated and is likely to be an artefact of movement in the soil. The bulb of percussion and striking / knapping platform are present on the lower (ventral) face. The upper (dorsal) face of the blade has a number of clear facets and ridges. Both the long edges have been retouched on the dorsal…

Incomplete snapped flint blade of probable later Mesolithic or early Neolithic date (6000BC - 3500BC). The flint tool, probably best described as a knife, is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and sub-triangular in cross section. The blade has been snapped and only the upper part survives; this break is intentional and from the period of use. The bulb of percussion is lost on the lower (ventral) face as is the prepared knapping platform on the upper (proximal) edge. The upper (dorsal) face of the blade has a number of clear facets and ridges. The long edges are both retouched on both the…

A snapped flint piece of tertiary debitage / blade of later Mesolithic date (4000 -3000BC). The blade is rectangular in plan and has a crested cross section. The striking platform and bulb of percussion are present on the ventral face and the blade has been snapped near the mid-point; the break is old and patinated. The dorsal face has a series of parallel distinct flakes scars present and the two long edges show some evidence of reworking - specifically a crescent shaped notch at the mid-point of the blade with distinct short parallel crossed abrupt retouch. The flint is a mid-grey c…

The striking platform and bulb of percussion are present on the ventral face and the blade has been snapped near the mid-point; the break is old and patinated. The two long edges show some evidence of reworking - although this mostly seems to be unorganised direct retouch - there is also some possibility that this retouch could be caused by movement in the soil. The flint is a mid-grey colour with a milky white coloured patina. …

Lithic implement in the form of a blade of later Mesolithic date (4000 -3000BC). The blade is formed on a course grained flint - possibly chert - and is rectangular in plan and has a crested cross section. It is from the third / tertiary phase of knapping. The blade has been struck from a prepared core; the striking platform and bulb of percussion are present on the ventral face. The opposite end is snapped - possibly recently as a result of movement in the soil. There is hard hammer direct retouch along one edge making a crude serrated cutting and scraping surface. The blade is a pal…

A retouched blade formed on secondary debitage (from the second phase of tool making) of later Mesolithic date (6500-3500 BC). The blade is struck from a poor quality flint core that varies in coarseness and colour, most probably being glacial or riverine derived. A larger area of cortex is present along one edge, this is a coarse white colour. The ventral face shows a clear bulb of percussion and conchoidal ripples and the upper edge has a distinct prepared knapping platform. The dorsal face shows a number of long scars formed from blade removals. The long edge has also been rework…

Flint blade like flake of later Mesolithic date (4000 -3000 BC). The flake is broadly rectangular in plan and has a crested (triangular shaped) cross section. The striking platform and bulb of percussion are both present. The external edges have been retouched and an irregular removal is present on one edge- the area around this is retouched possibly suggesting the removal shape had a specific use. The blade is a mid brown grey colour. It measures: 19.4mm in length, 14.4mm width, is 3.9mm thick and weighs 0.72 grams.

Two flint blades of later Mesolithic date (4000 -3000 BC). Both blades are rectangular in plan and have crested (triangular shaped) cross sections. They are also both small but complete showing prepared striking platform and bulb of percussion. The larger blade is a mid black grey colour; the long edges show no signs of retouch (although they are abraded in the plough soil). The base of the dorsal face shows a distinct overhang where the removal of the previous blade had left a small projection caused by a hinge fracture. The smaller blade a mid brown grey colour and has a is distinct…

The larger blade is a mid brownish grey colour with heavily mottling; the striking platform and bulb of percussion have both been removed. The long edges have also been reworked with abrupt retouch. The smaller is a mottled grey white coloured flint which has also been snapped removing the striking platform and bulb of percussion. This has been heavily retouched (with more skill than the other) with …

A small flint blade of later Mesolithic date (4000 -3000 BC). The blade is rectangular in plan and has a crested cross section. The striking platform and bulb of percussion are present on the ventral face although damaged by plough-roll. The long edges have not been reworked although movement in the plough surface suggests abrupt retouch is present. The flint is relatively coarse and a mid grey colour with small areas of translucent milky grey white coloured patina. The blade measures 28.5mm in length, 12.8mm width, is 4.9mm thick and weighs 1.61 grams.

Fragment of tertiary debitage reworked to form an awl or borer of either late Mesolithic or early Neolithic date (c.4000BC - 2900BC). The debitage is flake like being broadly triangular in plan and rectangular in section. The edges have been knapped to form sharply sloping edges and both the dorsal and ventral faces knapped to create serrated edges. The most reworking is present along one corner creating a sharpened point / boring tool. The flint is a mid grey white colour and has been slightly abraded in the ploughsoil. The source of flint is difficult to ascertain; much of the loca…
