Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint leaf-shaped arrowhead, dating to the Neolithic period c. 4000 - 2500 BC. The implement is lentoid in shape and made from a light grey flint. There is scaled low angled invasive retouch on both faces. The edges show smaller removals or retouch, which produce a sharp edge around the entire tool. Dimensions: weight: 2.30g, length: 34.4mm, width: 19.8mm, thickness: 2.7mm

Record ID: WMID-7943B7
Object type: LAUREL LEAF
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An early to middle Neolithic knife, dating from c. 3500-2900 BC. The object is a light to mid-brown coloured flint formed from a broad blade-like debitage flake. It is bifacially worked; however most of the removals are from the dorsal face. On the dorsal face there are large scars across the centre and at the edges the retouch is long, scaled, and low angled. The dorsal face is convex and the ventral face slightly concave. It measures 82.12 mm long, 41.89 mm wide and 11.79 mm thick. It weighs 48.5 grams.

Two pieces, probably from the same small blue flint nodule. One a small flake waste removed from the lower part of the nodule with some cortex (piece 1), and another small flake with more cortex remaining on the back but with evidence of fine edge damage and smoothing on the flint interior edge probably from use (piece 2). Piece 1: 12mm in length, 12mm in width, 3.5mm thick, 0.55g Piece 2: 18mm in length, 13mm in width, 5mm thick, 1.50g Two pieces of flint which look like very rough waste, (piece 3 & 4) with evidence of small narrow flake scars having previously come from this p…

  • Thumbnail image of LVPL-77D1A1

Record ID: LVPL-77D1A1
Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark grey flint flake with broad striking platform and prominent bulb of percussion and bulbar scar, suggesting removal from a large flint nodule with a hard hammer such as a pebble. The flint is good quality and may most likely be of river gravel origin. The flake has been broken laterally and the irregular damage along the upper left hand side may be natural post-depositional damage rather than through use, although the latter is not impossible particularly if the lateral break to the flake was deliberate, although there is no way of knowing whether this was the case. This is distin…

Record ID: PUBLIC-5EFB75
Object type: BLADE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Late Neolithic or early Bronze age secondary blade of mottled black/brown flint. It is triangular in plan, and the tip and base edges both show abrupt retouch. There is cortex remaining along the central facet of the trapezoid sectioned dorsal face and ripple marks on the slightly curved ventral side. There is a notch halfway along one side which appears to be intentional. Probably intended as a plano-convex knife, but appears to have been reworked, maybe to be used as a scraper, when it broke during manufacture. Length 36.4 mm, width 21.8 mm, thickness 7.1 mm, mass 5.8 g.

Tertiary flake of dark brown flint. In plan it is shield shaped, with a straight platform at the proximal end but with a part missing at the distal end which may be plough damage. There are three broad facets to the dorsal face and a shallow bulb and ripple marks to the ventral. No visible retouch noted. Probably neolithic, but may be earlier or later. Length 23.9mm, width 19.3mm, thickness 3.8mm, mass 2.1g.

A complete flint Scraper of Neolithic date (3450-1500 BC). The lithic is sub-rectangular in plan and concavo-convex in section. The dorsal surface is convex and is covered by retained cortex. The left hand edge has short parallel flaking. All edges except the blunted proximal edge have fine semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is concave and has ripples of percussion emanating from the proximal end. The lithic retains a large amount of cortex and is therefore a primary flake. The flint is dark grey in colour, the cortex is light brown. Length: 41.85mm, Width: 24.90mm, Thickness:…

A complete flint Thumbnail Scraper of Neolithic date (3450-1500 BC). The lithic is sub-ovate in plan and concavo-convex in section. The dorsal surface contains covering scaled flaking. All edges except the blunted proximal edge have fine semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is slightly concave with ripples of percussion emanating from the proximal end. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. The flint is grey in colour with some dark grey inclusions. Length: 25.10mm, Width: 20.89mm, Thickness: 8.02mm, Weight: 5.9g.

A complete flint Scraper of Neolithic date (3450-1500 BC). The lithic is sub-ovate in plan and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surface contains one predominant negative scar and short parallel flaking to the distal and left and right hand edges. There is a small amount of retained cortex on the proximal edge. All edges except the blunted proximal edge have fine semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is convex due to a central bulb of percussion. The lithic retains some cortex and is therefore a secondary flake. The flint is grey in colour with dark grey inclusions throughout. Th…

Dark grey flint core fragment. A chip probably from the side of a core bearing the scars from the removal of broad flakes from one side by probably unidirectional working. All struck surfaces bear a misty patina indicating the subsequent exposure of the object to a calcareous environment. This is locally removed by probably adventitious later impacts.
