Record ID: LVPL-77BC1B
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lithic implement of prehistoric date. The object is triangular in plan and is a light creamy brown colour. Ron Cowell, Curator of Prehistoric Archaeology, Museum of Liverpool notes: Triangular piece of miscellaneous-type flint I haven't seen much of in the region. There is some possible working around the thinner butt end, with a vertical break on the reverse side removing where the bulb of percussion may have been. There are some longitudinal fine scars along the right hand side, although difficult to tell whether these were put on before the piece was removed from the nodule or…

A grey flint, possibly a naturally created blank but with signs of surface working at one edge, perhaps to aid holding or even hafting, and retouch and damage along the longer continuous edge. The object is sub-oval in plan and sub-triangular in cross section. The retouch along the long edge is short, sub-parallel and semi-abrupt. Dimensions: 30mm in length, 11mm in width, 11mm thick, 4.60g Ron Cowell, Curator of Prehistoric Archaeology, Museum of Liverpool notes: This suggests a cutting type tool which would fit most easily into the following technology. The flint belongs to…

Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A large flint core of early Mesolithic or early Neolithic date. The core is cylindrical with one platform and parallel striking of narrow blades. One face of the object has narrower scars from blade removal while on the opposite face wider blades have been removed down the length of the core with shorter narrower blades removed from above (towards the striking platform) at a diagonal angle to the lower removals. The removed flints appear to have been blades. There is no visible sign of platform dressing. A strip of light cream cortex remains along the length of one side of the core…

County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small flint flake, possibly a borer, with abrupt retouch along the mesial portion of the right edge with relatively long scars. The flint increases in thickness on this side toward the proximal end, where there is evidence of a fracture/breakage. There is also semi-abrupt short retouch along the opposite edge on both faces, perpendicular to that of the other side and meeting in a point. From the ventral face, the point at the distal end is broken, with the top missing, and retouch on the left side is more abrupt with some extremely fine retouch present near to the promixal end. Cort…

County: Gwynedd

A small lithic implement of uncertain date. The flint is sub-rectangular in plan and cross-section with an inverted triangular shaped profile. The ventral (lower) face is smooth with a few ripples and a low bulb of percussion. The dorsal (upper) face is faceted due to the removal of several possible blades. Short, parallel, low angled retouch can be seen along the shortest edge of the object. The flint is toffee-coloured. Dimensions: 12mm in length, 15mm in width, 4mm thick, 1.2g

A flint core dating to the Prehistoric period, (8300-800BC). The object is sub-rectangular in plan and sub-triangular in cross-section. On the dorsal face three parallel blades have been removed. A large bulb of percussion on the ventral face indicates that the object was struck with a hard hammer. At the proximal end the striking platform measures 18.22mm in width and is 6.33mm thick. The distal end is smooth and rounded. On the right hand side of the flint (looking at the dorsal face) is a short length of short semi-abrupt retouch. Towards the distal end and along the left hand e…

Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Wirral
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A Prehistoric stone tool dating from the Mesolithic through to the Bronze Age, (10,000-700BC) although a later date is possible. The object is oval in plan and sub-oval cross-section. Due to uneven thickness it is trapezoidal in profile. One face has been deliberately smoothed to form a straight and even face which terminates with a rounded end. The opposite end is stepped with the tip unsmoothed. The opposite face has been worn down at the rounded end and slopes down sharply to where it terminates. The surface of the thickest part of the object on this face is undulating before the o…

A lithic waste flake dating from the Mesolithic to the early Bronze Age, (8300-800BC). The object is a pointed oval in plan and triangular in cross-section. The object is made from a toffee brown flint. Flint waste such as this is difficult to date more precisely when found alone.

Flint implement dating from the Neolithic to early Bronze Age, (2500-1500BC). The object is sub-oval in plan and sub triangular in cross-section. A light brown cortex remains on one face of the object. A few chips are missing from the long edge with no cortex however it is uncertain whether these are deliberate due to their coarseness. The implement has been made from toffee brown coloured flint and is probably a waste flake.

Flint blade dating to the early Prehistoric period, c5000-3000BC. The object is sub-rectangular in plan and triangular in cross-section. The lower (ventral) face of the object is smooth. Two long flakes have been removed to create the upper (dorsal) face of the object on which small ripples can be seen. Each long edge of the object has been lightly retouched with fine serrations and it was therefore probably used as an implement. The implement has been made from mid-grey flint.

Lithic Implement: A single chunky blade fragment or possibly part of a multi-platform core. The object is sub-triangular in cross-section.
