Record ID: DEV-603F42
Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete probable flint knife of probable neolithic date, c.4,000-2,400BC. Worked from a tertiary blade of pale grey, slightly translucent flint,with some iron staining on the ridge scars, missing its distal end to a natural break and with the proximal end worked away. Very diffuse conchoidal ripples present on the ventral face, and with a single blade-like removal on the dorsal face, again with extremely diffuse conchoidal ripples. Either lateral edge of the dorsal face exhibits long, semi-abrupt, scalar retouch. A posible notch has been worked into the right lateral edge at the …

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Polished stone Axehead of Neolithic date (3,350-2,100 BC). The lithic is a polished ingnious rock and is sub-triangular in in plan. The lithic is bi-convex in plan with a minor amount of bevelling to the left and right hand edges. The blade end is missing due to an abraded transverse break, possibly caused post-depositionally. The stone is dark grey in colour with a coarse grain. Length: 73.54mm, Width: 59.00mm, Thickness: 18.07mm, Weight: 85.8g.

A complete flint Thumbnail Scraper of Neolithic date (3450-1500 BC). The lithic is sub-ovate in plan and bi-convex in section. The dorsal surface contains short parallel flaking on all edges with the exception of the proximal edge, which has retained cortex covering it. The remained of the dorsal surface has covering scaled flaking. The distal, left and right hand edges have fine semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is slightly convex due to a small bulb of percussion situated at the proximal end. A single negative scar is situated over the proximal end of the bulb. The lithic reta…

Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Neolithic flint axehead, possibly an unfinished roughout, probably dating to c. 4000-2400 BC. The axe has a convex curved blade which is the widest point, from this it tapers evenly in width to the rounded butt. The axe is pointed oval in cross section across the width and broadly so along the length wih the thickest point slghtly closer to the blade than the butt. The blade is broadly C-shaped with a large notch from damage towards one end and several other chips removed by damage on one face. The axe has no evidence of polishing and there is little fine working at the blade althoug…
