Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint fabricator of uncertain date, possibly Mesolithic in age c. 9000BC-3300BC Description: The fabricator is formed from a thick ovoid heavily worked tertiary flake. with narrow sides. In cross-section the fabricator is triangular. Retouch on the ventral face is extensive and clearly defined being invasive scaled semi-abrupt. The bulb of percussion is relatively subtle compared with the retouch and may indicate the use of both soft and hard hammers in its production.The flint is heavily mottled grey-white through to some dark grey on the ventral side. Measurements: 68.16mm long, …

Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint core of probable late Mesolithic date c.8000-4000BC. Description: The core is very roughly conical. The striking has left substantial conchoidal fractures, which indicates use of hard hammer technology. The removals appear to be quite small and vary in size and direction There is a concave side which may relate to an area of lower quality flint with inclusions and faults which may be why the core was abandoned. The flint is heavily mottled grey colour except for the patch of beige cortex. Measurements: 37.9mm high. 36.7mm wide, 34.99mm deep and 31.68g in weight.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete flint end scraper of probable Mesolithic date. Description: The scraper is incomplete and broken across its' body. The scraper remains sub-triangular in shape with a wide sweeping scraping edge. The break appears to be across a significant fault within the flint and may have happen during production. The edge is formed from short scaled semi-abrupt retouch. The rest of the flaking appears to be haphazard and the bulb of percussion is missing due to the break caused by the fault. All retouch and flaking is focused on the dorsal face, other features visible on the ventral …

A flint borer of uncertain date, probably Mesolithic to early Bronze Age. Description: The borer is thin in cross section but irregfular in plan, One end of the borer is flaked into a point, off centre. The borer point is formed from invasive scaled semi-abrupt retouch. Each of the long side of the borer has retouch alogn their edges defined as short scaled semi-abrupt. This may indicate the tool was multi use with a scraper edge in addition to the boring point The flint is very grey to black in colour. The flaking is very pronounced and likely indicates a hard hammer technique was us…

2 pieces of flint waste flakes (debitage) from flint tool production, likely dating from the early Mesolithic through to the bronze age c. 9000 - 1000BC. Description: 2 flakes, the smaller of which is a tertiary flake, irregular with a clear bulb of percussion and conchoidal rippling indicative of hard hammer technology. The 2nd is a secondary flake with some patination remaining, roughly rectangular, with subtle bulb of percussion and conchoidal rippling likely from the production of blades or bladelets.

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 althou…

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 a…

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 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 …

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.
