Record ID: DOR-9A2834
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two flint waste flakes> 1] An incomplete secondary flake of pale grey flint with a matt patina and patched of abraded nodule cortex. The flake is trapeziodal to trangular in cross section and is probably the result of blade production. It has been broken off at the proximal end after it was discarded. The distal end terminates in a hinge fracture. There are several parallel flake removals on the dorsal face. Dimensions: 42.77 mm x 31.24 mm x 12.35 mm Weight: 15.34 g Date: Probably Neolithic - c. 4000 - 2500 BC 2] An incomplete tertiary flake of mid grey-brown flint with a milky-wh…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Mid blue-grey and pale grrey mottled flint with iron staining. The surfaces are semi-matt with incipient patination. There are numerous elongate flake removals from opposed ends. One platform has been truncated by the removal from the second platform, resulting in a wedge shaped end. There may have been an attempt to rejuvenate the second platform prior to discarding it. Date: Probably Neolithic - c. 4000 - 2500 BC Dimensions: 69.11mm x 37.72 mm x 25.08 mm Weight: 78.06 g

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probable flint knife dating from the Neolithic to Early Bronze Age (c. 4000 to 1600 BC). A large piece of orange-brown flint with off- white coretex on one face. The dorsal face shows evidence of possible polish at one end and there has been clear knapping on both faces around the unbroken parts of the margin. At one end is a clear break on one side of it and this suggests that it is part of what was once a larger tool. There is no clear bulb of production or striking platform.

An incomplete ground greenstone axehead. A triangular axehead with flattened sides. The cutting edge is convex and slightly offcentre. The axehead tapers to the broken butt. One face remains convex, the other has been damaged. The cross section is sub-lenticular. The surface has been pecked and ground and is slightly pitted as a result of weathering. The origin is uncertain, but it is possible that it originated on Cornnwall or South Wales. Date: Neolithic - 4000 - 2300 BC Dimensions: 84.03 mm x 36.38 mm x 22.41 mm Weight: 155.76 g

A rounded flint scraper made on a core rejunenation flake. A tertiary flake of light grey flint with a mid-gloss surface. A narrow striking platform at the proximal end with a small, pronounced bulb of percussion on the ventral face. There are several widely spaced waves of percussion ventrall. On the dorsal face are several narrow, parallel flaking scars which converge towards the centre forming a point. This indicates that the flake was struck from the base of a bladelet core to form a new striking platform. It has subsequently been retouched around approximately 75 % of the perimete…
