  • Thumbnail image of OXON-F2AD74

Record ID: OXON-F2AD74
Object type: ADZE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete Mesolithic flint adze or pick, dating from c. 10,000 to c. 3500 BC. This adze has been made on an elongated flint nodule of a mottled dark grey flint, now patinated white / light grey with evidence of recortification. Being broadly triangular in section this object can be described as a pick as well as an adze. The butt is squared in plan, the side taper gently and evenly towards the tip which is rounded. The adze is worn but is in good condition overall, with an area of post-depositonal damage around the butt.

Record ID: OXON-7F3AD7
Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint piercer made on a bladelet dating to the Late Upper Palaeolithic to Mesolithic period (c. 20,000-4,000 BC). The piercer has been made on a tertiary flake of a mottled orange-brown flint. The bulb is retained as is the small fragment of the platform. There are two flake scars on the dorsal surface. The lower half of the left hand edge of the dorsal side has been worked with soft hammer precussion, becoming more invasive towards the tip of the piercer, which has detatched, possibly during production but potentially after deposition.

County: Oxfordshire

A flint bladelet made of a tertiary flake of mottled orange-brown flint, dating to the Mesolithic period (c. 10,000-4,000 BC). The baldelet is broadly planoconvex with a narrowed distal end. The bulb is retained however the platform at the proximal end is damaged. Numerous thin flake scars (microlith production) are visible over the dorsal surface. There is edge damage to the left hand dorsal side. There is some modern damage to the ventral surface.

Record ID: OXON-7D1411
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A damaged plunging flake of probable Mesolithic date, c. 10,000 - 4,000 BC. The secondary flake has been hard-hammer struck from a mottled orange-brown flint core. There is a seam of quartz visible. Ancient flakes scars are evident on the dorsal surface but there is also modern damage to all surfaces. The flake has a wide central section that tapers towards either end while the dorsal side has a stepped profile.

A complete plunging flake of Mesolithic date, c. 10,000 - 4,000 BC. The tertiary flake has been hard-hammer struck from a mottled orange-brown flint. There is some possible soft-hammer percussion on the right of the proximal end. Flakes scars are evident on the dorsal surface. The flake has a wide central section that tapers towards either end.

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint crested bladelet or crested flake of probable Mesolithic date (c. 10,000-4000 BC). The bladelet has been made on a secondary flake of a grey-brown, semi-translucent flint. Some cresting is visible on the dorsal side. The bulb is retained although incomplete, probably as a result of modern damage.

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint crested bladelet of probable Mesolithic date (c. 10,000-4000 BC). The bladelet has been made on a tertiary flake with the flint being a mottled light to dark brown colour. Part of the platform is retained as is the low bulb. Three or four long flake scars are present on the dorsal surface, with a small area of cresting towards the distal end. There is possibly a small area of retouch on one edge close to the proximal end. There are two small areas of modern damage.

Record ID: BERK-3EA9C0
Object type: MICRODENTICULATE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Buckinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete but slightly damaged struck flint, a possible microdenticulate or a multi-tool of probable Mesolithic date (c. 10,000-4000 BC). The tool is formed on a blade-like secondary flake of mottled light and dark grey flint and retains c.5% cortex around the platform on the proximal dorsal end. Flake scars on the dorsal surface show previous removals. The platform and bulb is retained; the distal end of the tool appears broken and there has been some attempt at reworking the broken distal end. The dorsal surface bares abrupt retouch (backing?) along c.70% of the left lateral, fadin…

Object type: TRANCHET AXEHEAD
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: West Berkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint tranchet adze or pick dating to the Mesolithic period (8300-4000 BC), similar to the so-called 'Thames Pick'. The pick has been made from a flint nodule and is broadly sub-rectangular in plan with both the butt end and the bladed cutting edge being slightly rounded; the pick tapers slowly from the butt end towards the blade. In section the pick is a pointed ovoid, with both butt and blade being thin and sharp and pointed in profile. The dorsal side of the pick has a high, off-centre longitudinal ridge, bevelled to each side due to flakes having been removed wit…

Record ID: BERK-CEB825
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: West Berkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A collection of three flint debitage pieces, or flintworking flakes of probable Mesolithic date. The debitage pieces include two unworked bladelets (combined weight of 3.8 grams) and one flake (6.8 grams), which retains its bulb. All three pieces are made on the characteristic mottled blue-grey flint of the area, which has a milky outer coating. Two of the pieces, the larger bladelet and the flake, retain areas of cortex, both being secondary flakes. The smaller bladelet is made on a tertiary flake. Associated with BERK-CDE464 and BERK-CDE464.
