A secondary flake of light grey coloured debitage or segment implement of probable Mesolithic to Neolithic date (c. 10,000 - 2351 BC). The flake is rectangular and trapezoidal in section, but is perhaps too thick to be a blade. The distal end tapers at one corner and is broken. It measures 27.76mm in length, 11.72mm in width, 5.32mm thick and weighs 1.98grams. Butler (2005) illustrates a similar implement on Figure 46, No. 7.

Mesolithic to Neolithic (-8300 to -2100) debitage: x3 knapped flint flake is probably a rejuvenation flake. They are knapped from a flint which has since developed a grey-white mottled patina, even across breaks. The dorsal surfaces on each flake have vertical two or three flake scars. The ventral surfaces have a small bulb of percussion, and conchoidal ripples. measures 24.81mm long, 12.7mm wide, 2.4mm thick and weighs 0.63g. measures 15.43mm long, 9.33mm wide, 2.43mm thick and weighs 0.39g. measures 14.20mm long, 8.2mm wide, 2.33mm thick and weighs 0.28g.

Probably early Mesolithic to early Neolithic (9000 - 3300BC) denticulate: The flint flake is an elongated oval in plan and sub-trapezoidal in section. The ventral surface has a small bulb of percussion, and conchoidal ripples. The dorsal surface has three main vertical scars three other smaller scars. The distal end of the dorsal surface has a trace of a thick yellow patina suggesting the flake was taken from an older worked flint item. The flint is otherwise a mottled dark to light grey with a light brown colour. Along both lateral edges, on the dorsal surface there is slight re-t…

Mesolithic (10,000 to 4,000BC) core: The core is cylindrical with a sub-oval section. The core appears to be used to short, narrow blades and has two striking platforms, one either end. One side face has a small patch of cortex which has been mainly been removed. There is some recent abrasion and crazing at each terminal edge. The flint is a dark grey colour. The core measures 30.42mm long, 31.56mm wide, is 24.49mm thick and weighs 28.47g. The core dates to the Mesolithic period, based on the small blade scars.

Mesolithic to early Neolithic (-8300 to -2900) probable knife or blade: The implement has been knapped from the flint core. The dorsal surface has a central vertical scar and then the lateral edges have a vertical scar also. The distal end is rounded due to retouch on both faces. At this end, on the dorsal surface there is a patch of cortex. The ventral surface has a bulb of percussion, conchoidal ripples and striking platform. At the proximal end, next to the bulb of percussion there is possibly a notch which has been knapped, or it is recent damage, it is uncertain which. One latera…

Mesolithic to Neolithic (83000 - 2100BC) debitage in the form of a knapped flint tertiary flake: The ventral face has conchoidal ripples, and a small bulb of percussion. The dorsal surface has multiple, a wide, deep scar at the proximal end. The distal end has a straight edge which is rounded which may be due to wear.

Mesolithic to Neolithic (83000 - 6500BC) debitage in the form of a knapped flint tertiary flake or blade: The ventral face has conchoidal ripples, but the bulb of percussion, proximal end, is missing due to a perpendicular scar. The dorsal surface has multiple, a wide, deep scar which is perpendicular (horizontal) to the flake. This forms a concave shape edge. The other lateral edge has a vertical scar and another flake which has been removed from the edge, forming an angular right-angled edge.

Workflow stage: Published Find published
Mesolithic to Neolithic (8,300 to 4,500 BC) perforated object: stone pebble hammer or mace head. The pebble hammer is incomplete, approximately half remains, and this half is semi-cylindrical in plan, with an incomplete perforation along the straight broken edge. The perforation has an hour-glass profile and measures: 25mm diameter at its narrowest and 32mm deep. The stone is possibly hard sandstone. Due to the 'hardness' it resembles a 'Bunter quartzite' pebble. These are river worn pebbles of hard sandstone that are widely distributed throughout the Midlands. The pebble is a mottled…

Mesolithic or possibly Neolithic (-8300 to -2100) probable core: The core is knapped from a mottled light to mid grey knapped flint. The core has multiple negative scars cover its surface. There are areas of fine occasional crazing, but doesn't seem enough to due to burning. The core weighs 17.8g and measures 31.13mm long and 26.88mm wide. This core, probably dates to the Mesolithic period, and possibly to the Neolithic period (-8300 to -2100).

A possible knapped flint denticulate produced from a secondary flake. The dorsal surface has two slender vertical scars with a slightly concave distal end, which is the widest end. The distal end has re-touch which removes some of the flints patination. The ventral surface has a bulb of percussion, bulbar scars, and concentric ripples. One lateral edge has fine denticulates which have been re-touched from the dorsal surface. This re-touch also appears to have removed some of the flints patination. The re-touch is uneven. The flint is a mottled cream colour where it is patinated, and …
