Object type: BORER
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A large crude flint probable borer with scraping edges possibly dating from the Mesolithic to the Early Bronze Age c.9000-1000 BC. Description: The borer is roughly sub-triangular in plan, kinking to the right with a concave right side. The borer is also tirangular in cross-section with a pointed dorsal face. The bulb of percussion on the ventrla side is very subtle and the conchoidal rippling is very subtle. There is long scaled abrupt retouch on the right edge which changes to semi-abrupt as it curves round to the borer point. Similar retouch is present on the left side although it …

A flint scraper likely of mesolithic to early Neolithic date (c.9000 - 3300 BC), utilising an earlier flake. Description: The scraper is sub-triangular in shape with a wider outter slighlty concave edge, an inner convex edge and a wide body. It is formed from a tertiary flake. There is retouch along the convex edge bifacially worked formed by short very regular scaled semi-abrupt removals. The short edge has some less regular short retouch creating a bit of a longer boring point. There is some more invasive retouch along the outer edge.The bulb of percussion is fairly subtle although …

irregular flint thumb-nail scraper possibly of Mesolithic date (c.9000-4000 BC). Description: The scraper is irregular shaped, with one rounded end and one slightly pointed shouldered end. It is formed from a heavily retouched primary flake. The flaking along both facing edges, the bulb of percussion and conchoidal scarring (rippling) on the ventral face is very pronounced which suggest hard hammer technology. The majority of the edges have invasive, scaled semi-abrupt retouch struck from the dorsal faces. The shouldered edge starting from where it goes inwards has rough retouch alon…

County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lithic implement of uncertain type dating to the early Mesolithic period, c.9000 - 8000 BC. Description: The tool is roughly rectangular with one pointed end and triangular in cross-section. It is obliquely blunted with short scaled abrupt retouch along one edge. it is a light grey tansluscent colour. Measurements: 30.74mm long, 12.65mm wide, 6.58mm thick and 2.64g in weight. Discussion: Despite clear retouch the exact identity of this tool is uncertain its small size and probable relationship to the microlith industries of the Mesolithic make a Mesolithic date most likely.

A Mesolithic to early Bronze-Age button/thumb-nail scraper, Description: The scraper is small and rounded in plan. It is made from a tertiary flake with poor flaking. The scraper edge is formed from invasive scaled semi-abrupt to abrupt retouch around most of the edge save for the striking platform. The dorsal face has varied flaking from previous removals and forming of the scraping edge. The bulb of percussion is quite shallow despite having quite substantial conchoidal rippling.

A incomplete perforated stone object of Mesolithic or Neolithic date, c.9000-c.2200BC. Description: The mace head is oval in plan and has a central perforation from one side to the other. This perforation is the typical hour glass shape. The surface of the mace has been polished and is very smooth to the touch. The object has fractured and left a rough section on side covering roughly a third of that side. Much of the circumference of the mace is worn and abraded and looks to have been caused by use rather than by post-depositional wear. The stone is a dark red-brown colour and is pro…

A long flint flake likely utilised as a blade of Mesolithic to early Neolithic date, c.9000BC - BC3300 Description: The flake is formed from a long tertiary flake, which has snapped off at the distal end and is roughly rectangular in plan and slightly curved. The bulb of percussion is very subtle and little conchoidal rippling can be seen. This would suggest soft hammer technology and a Mesolithic to early-Neolithic date. Measurements :53.89mm long, 19.32mm wide, 6.27mm thick and 6.23g in weight.

flint borer of uncertain date, likely Mesolithic to early Bronze Age date c.9000BC - 1000BC. Description:The tool is formed from a pentagonal (in plan) shaped flake with a flat base and long sides with the point being formed by low very short sub parallel angled retouch forming the point of the tool.

A knapped flint end scraper likely dating from the Mesolithic or Neolithic (c.9000 - 2200BC). Description:The scraper is formed from an irregular rectangular shaped secondary flake, slightly wider at the distal end. There is retouch along parts of the side edges which appears to be blunting the tool or creating a small simple scraping edge and this retouch has been flaked from the dorsal face and can be described as short scaled semi-abrupt. At the distal end there careful short scaled semi-abrupt retouch which creates a scraping edge, this retouch has crated two knops, one at each en…

An uncertain incomplete lithic tool made from a secondary waste flake, of Mesolithic to Neolithic Date c. 9000 - 2200 BC. Description: The flake is irregularly shaped with very short scaled abrupt crushing retouch on the right diagonal edge of the ventral face. This retouch was intended to blunt the edge. There is a probable break at the top of the tool which makes the full tool type uncertain. The crushing may indicate the object is in fact a fragment of a backed blade. The flint is mottled light grey through to dark grey-blue with some light beige cortex on the proximal edge. Measu…

A small waste flake (debitage) from flint tool production, likely dating from the production of flint from early Mesolithic through to the bronze age c. 9000 - 1000BC. Description: The flake is roughly rectangle with a slight concave left side and a triangular profile. The conchoidal rippling on the ventral face is subtle suggesting soft hammer technology. The flake has had the vast majority of its bulb of percussion snapped away with a tiny section of it remaining at the very bottom left creating a slight but present lip (not clearly visible in the image).

A small debitage flake of likely Mesolithic date, c.9000-4000 BC Description: The debtitage is a long flake with rounded end. The debitage is a secondary or teritay flake, from a core where long thin flakes were removed, likely in the production of mesolithic microliths. There is a small patch of dark cortex on one edge.
