Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probable core formed unfinished flint chisel of late Neolithic or early Bronze Age date c.4000-1000 BC. Description: The chisel sub-rectangular in shape and pointed oval in cross-section. It has been flaked to shape from a larger piece of flint by covering scaled semi-abrupt flaking. The tool has a hinge fracture at one end is pointed and triangular in plan with cortex still adhering across half of it. It is presumed this is the working end as one would expect the butt end would be flatter. the pointed end has less flaking also, so it is uncertain if this was a working end or if it …

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Surrey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A polished Neolithic axehead, 101.9mm in length, which tapers from a maximum of 47.7mm wide near the blade to a narrow butt. The object is knapped from a mottled sandy brown to dark brown flint. There is some chip damage from tumbling to the blade, butt and edges. A concave area of damage to the edge of the blade has been subject to reworking with adrupt to semi-abrupt retouch. This suggests an attempt to re-sharpen after an ancient break and that the axe was used as a functional object.

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two semi-hard hammer struck flakes, the longer of the two is in unpatinated dark grey flint and is shallowly notched to one lateral edge at the midpoint (51 x 17 x 8.5 mm). The other is of mottled brown and grey slightly patinated flint, also semi-hard hammer struck from an opposed, or multi-platform core with previous flake removals in opposition to each other, both ends of the flake retain platforms. Possible fine use-wear as well as recent damage to the lateral edge with the thinnest angle (43.5 x 21 x 7 mm). Both pieces are Late Prehistoric: Neolithic to Bronze Age.

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Almost complete leaf-shaped arrowhead of Green's (1980) type 3A, closely matching the outline of example h. It was of dark brown flint (as seen in the small recently damaged areas of the edges and, more so, to the butt), now patinated mottled light grey and white. Both faces are invasively pressure flaked with the dorsal face being the most successful with over lapping flake scars covering the surface of the arrowhead, the ventral face has a "blank" area at the centre where the flakes have stopped short and hinged, a common knapping error arising from using a struck flake as a starting…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary, hard hammer struck flake, of unpatinated slightly mottled dark grey flint of good quality, struck from a prepared core with semi-centripetal, over-lapping invasive flake scars to the rather flat dorsal face. The bulb of percussion has been removed transversely by very steep retouch struck from the dorsal face, all edges appear to have been damaged recently. Likely to be a unifacial variation of the discoidal knife. Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age.
