Record ID: CAM-18C7C3
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete fragment of polished Neolithic axehead. This axehead has been broken in half along the linial profile so that only one side of the profile survives. The axehead has also been broken transversely to the butt-end and blade-end. This means that the original shape and cross-sectional shape and profile shape of the artefact has been lost. At least one hinge fracture is present. Damage is also present along both edges.

Object type: FLAKED AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Flaked flint axehead, bifacially worked to produce an asymmetric sub-lozenge shaped cross-section. Significant amounts of recortication has occurred on this secondary peiece of flint, cortex remaining over the majority of the butt end. The presence of one small cavity is visible on the surface. This oval cavity measures 3.2mm x 2.4mm. Some battering on edges and on cutting edge. While this object could be a 'preform' which was intended to be polished the less perscriptive term 'Flaked Axe' is prefered. Probably Neolithic. Weight 191.44g, Length 106.6mm, Width 51.8mm, Thickness 29.6mm.

A relatively large chunk of hard chalk veering on clunch which appears to possibly have been slightly shaped by human hand although this may just be fortuitous. This item weighs in excess of 200g, being too heavy for the precise set of weighing scales. Length is 174.0mm, width is 100.7mm and maximum thickness is 28.1mm. The overall appearance is teardrop shaped however the narrower end has a 'U' shaped chunk missing from the terminal and a spall missing from one surface that is greater than a third of that surface but less than half. The wider end has a flattened rather than rounde…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A small partially polished stone axehead of Neolithic date. The cross-section is oval. The weight is 172.06g, length is 99.8mm, maximum width is 41.0mm and maximum thickness is 29.6mm. This axehead is a greenstone, similar to Cornish greenstone although full scientific analysis would need to be conducted to determine this conclusively. The stone would have been pecked into shape before a half-hearted attempt to polish the the stone to the finished product. An attempt to polish the axehead can be seen on the tip and on a bit of the sides. This axehead has suffered post-depositional abra…

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An arrowhead, formed from tertiary flint, that is either barbed and tanged with the barbs having broken off or was originally a leaf shaped arrowhead that has been reworked to have a tang at the middle of the lower edge. The arrowhead is bifacially worked with covering low angle parallel retouch on the ventral side. The other side has long to invasive low angle scaled retouch. The arefact has recorticated although this has been removed at the base of the arrowhead around the tang. It is uncertain whether this is a result of reworking or later depositional damage. Weight is 1.70g, leng…

Record ID: CAM-97F9E7
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A Neolithic polished flint axehead with retouch and post-depositional damage. The axehead has a pointed oval to almost lozenge shaped cross section. A lot of the polished surface has been removed by retouch and small amounts of damage. The polished surface survives predominantly along the centre of both sides which then extends, flaring into a fan shape, to cover all of the blade end. Retouch is present along both edges of both sides of the axehead and around both sides of the butt end giving the appearance of an axe rough-out with only partial polish. Small irregular shaped areas of t…

Workflow stage: Published Find published
An Early to Middle Neolithic polished stone axehead dating c. 4000-3300 BC. This axehead has a pointed-oval cross section. One side edge has a slight flattened lateral facet, the opposing side edge having a subtler flattened lateral facet that could easily be missed during a very quick examination of this artefact thus giving the impression of a lateral rounded-pointed edge. The artefact weighs 290.74g, has a length of 126.5mm, maximum width of 60.5mm and maximum thickness of 31.7mm. The type of stone used to create this axehead has not yet been fully identified however the finder …

Secondary flint flake, possibly scraper. The striking platform has a length of 23.7mm and width of 7.6mm. A point of percussion is present as is a bulb of percussion below, probably the result of soft hammer production. The area of slight conchoidal fracture occupies approximately just over half of the height of this side of the flake, probably terminating in a hinge fracture seen as an abrupt narrow ledge. Other irregular fracturing is present below, possibly including some that terminate in slight hinge fractures, as well as tiny fractures near to the edge possibly accidentally o…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A sherd of ceramic vessel. Probably a sherd of Late Neolithic, possibly Peterborough Ware, or from a Bronze age food vessel. The sherd is to small to determine a more accurate identification as a a greater length of the vessel rim and neck profile would be needed in order to provide a date based on stylistic characteristics. The sherd weighs 13.18g and is 10.42mm thick. The incomplete height of the vessel is 35.49mm. Use of a rim chart suggests that the vessel originally had a diameter of c.100mm and that only c.10% of the rim circumference survives. The outer surface of the sherd is …
