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 near complete secondary debitage flint blade of probable later Mesolithic date (6000BC - 3500BC). The flint is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and sub-triangular in cross section. The upper face has an area of cortex present suggesting it is from the outer area of a flint core which was originally derived from a chalk environment. The bulb of percussion is present on the lower (ventral) face . The proximal end is flat having been deliberately trimmed suggesting the blade was struck from a well prepared core. The upper (dorsal) face of the blade has a number of clear facets and ridges…

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…
