  • Thumbnail image of SUSS-389061

Record ID: SUSS-389061
Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A multiplatform, mesolithic, flint, bladelet core, 8500-4300 BC. The core is a dark brown/black with multiple striking platforms. It is predominantly conical in shape with most blade flakes removed in this fashion. There are also flakes removed across the striking platform of the core from one end. The core retains some cortex over about 15% of the conical surface. Length: 37.33mmWidth: 45.48mmThickness: 30.67mmWeight: 63.77g

A complete, mesolithic, conical, flint core for producing bladelets, 8500-4300BC. This is an asymetrical, conical flint core, with cortex remaining on a third of the surface. Long bladelet flakes have been removed over the rest of the surface. Length: 27.47mmWidth: 29.34mmThickness: 23.91mmWeight: 24.47g

Record ID: SUSS-073FDD
Object type: CHOPPER
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: The City of Brighton and Hove
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete flint tool possibly a chopper, mesolithic-Neolithic in date. The tool is a lozenge shaped flake the ventral side has some small removals that may be later as they break the patinated surface of the object. The dorsal side has three longitudinal flake scars from previous removals with only a small bit of cortex remaining at the distal end. The whole surface has become patinated to a pale grey-white colour except where some later flakes have broken the surface, possibly from natural damage. At the distal end there is some evidence of retouch around the broadest point. Leng…

Record ID: SUSS-05E663
Object type: ADZE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete mesolithic flint adze head, 8300-4500BC. The object is a short tapering knapped flint piece, it has a lozenge shaped section that is most visible at the widest end. This end tapers sharply to a point formed by a tranchet strike that has been further shaped down. There is a longitudinal ridge running the length of both the borsal and ventral sides. The distal end of the object curves slightly giving the piece an asymetrical appearance. The object is made from a pale grey flint. The object appears to be complete but does not seem to be finished. Length: 133.15mmWidth: 42.32mm…

Record ID: SUSS-37A3F7
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of flint bladelet, possibly a piece of debitage or an unfinished microlith blank, Mesolithic, 8000-4500BC. The tertiary flake has been truncated at the proximal end, removing the bulb of percussion though, the rippling remains visible on the ventral side. The dorsal side is marked by a longitudinal ridge created by previous flake removals to either side. There is no retouch present on the object, though there is some damage to the edges of the flake.

  • Thumbnail image of SUSS-BCBC8F

Record ID: SUSS-BCBC8F
Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete flint blade flake, possibly a knife blade Mesolithic - Neolithic in date 8500-1500 BC. Light grey flint with signs of having been water rolled. Both edges appear to be retouched but the rounding off by water rolling makes it difficult to tell its age. Mesolithic knives tend to be either unmodified or abruptly retouched to produce a backed knife, whereas early Neolithic knives tend to be broad with a distinctive D shape in cross section. The age is therefore in doubt.
