Record ID: HESH-9D7B47
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Three pieces of flint debitage of Neolithic date. The group comprises two unworked tertiary debitage waste flakes and a piece of secondary waste which has been reworked to form a crude scraper. The reworking is limited to a single curved edge and the retouch can be described as short scaled abrupt in nature. All pieces have been abraded in the plough soil. They have a bulk weight of 12.05 grams Retouched secondary debitage measures: 26.6 mm length, 28.8mm width, is 19.7mm thick and weighs 2.45 grams Tertiary debitage: 61.4mm length, 35.0mm width, is 26.9mm thick a…

Object type: POLISHED AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A near complete ground and polished axehead formed of a very fine grained siliceous stone - probably a chert from the Cretaceous upper greensand horizon - of probable later Neolithic date (3000-2000 BC). The axe is knapped from a light grey / cream coloured chert with a milky white coloured surface patina. There is considerable mid orange staining across the reworked surface and this is possibly as a result in the burial environment - possibly indicating deposition within soils that are iron rich or have a predilection towards iron panning / waterlogging. The matrix of the stone is un…

A small flint scraper / side scraper formed on a secondary flake probably dating from the earlier Neolithic (3500-2500 BC). The scraper is formed on a pointed oval shaped flake which is D shaped in cross section. The ventral (lower) face shows conchoidal ripples and the bulb and point of percussion from a prepared distal platform. The dorsal face has a number of irregular and regular flake scars from previous flake removals and a large area of mid grey cream coloured cortex. The two long curved edges have been reworked / retouched with small regular flakes creating a cutting / scrapin…

Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD

County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete leaf-shaped arrowhead of probable Neolithic date (2900 - 2150 BC). The arrowhead is formed on a mid brown grey coloured flint; the dorsal face is extensively retouched whilst the ventral only has slight retouch around the edges. This suggests that the arrowhead is formed on a tertiary debitage flake where the point and bulb of percussion have been removed. The arrowhead is sub-triangular (tear drop shaped) in plan and lentoid in cross section. In profile the tip of the arrowhead is slightly curved. The dorsal face has had significant pressure (ripple) flaked with a series of…

A struck flint 'thumbnail' scraper of Neolithic date (3500-2000 BC). The scraper is broadly oval in shape being formed from on a relatively thick tertiary flake of mid-grey / cream coloured flint; it is irregular in cross section. The upper dorsal face of the scraper exhibits a large number of flake scars suggesting that this piece has been heavily worked / reworked. The ventral face is relatively flat with conchoidal ripples and the remains of the bulb of percussion. The striking platform has been reworked. The edges of the dorsal face have all be retouched with indirect percussion,…

A mid - dark grey coloured flake of tertiary debitage (waste) of Neolithic date c. 4000 - 2000 BC.The flake has not been retouched. The dorsal face has several scars where other flakes have been removed whilst the ventral face shows a clear bulb of percussion and choncoidal ripples. The flint is typical of Neolithic flaking having been worked in several opposing directions.

An incomplete fragment from a knapped, ground and polished axe head of probable Neolithic date (3500-2100 BC). The axe is knapped from a light mid grey coloured volcanic tuff. Within the matrix are medium (less than 2mm) rectangular flecks of grey coloured inclusions ; further there and fine angular (0.5mm) flecks of white and black inclusions as well. This rock type is formed from compressed volcanic ash that is found in Britain and Ireland in a band that runs down the Irish Sea from the Lake District (the Langdale's source Group VI), County Antrim (Ireland), through North Wales (Gra…

A tertiary waste flake reworked to form a knife of probable later Neolithic date (4000-2500BC). The flake is triangular in shape and lentoid in cross section; it has been taken fro the tertiary phase of working and most probably represents a waste flake. This has subsequently been reworked / utilised as a multi functionary tool; most probably a knife or a scraper with one end which could be used as a fabricator / borer / awl. The tip of this point has been broken. The thickest long side has had a series of short, sub-parallel abrupt retouch applied - whilst the opposite end has more …

A thumbnail scraper of later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2300 -1800BC). The scraper is formed on a course yellow grey coloured poor quality, secondary flake of flint. The scraper is poorly preserved and has been shattered into two pieces probably by movement in the soil or possibly bracken flailing / strimming. The dorsal face has several removals / flake facets. These are most dense around the edge where a series of neat regular well applied secondary retouch can be seen. This has been well applied and forms a slightly serrated cutting / scraping edge that extends around thre…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete knapped lithic implement most probably a flint knife or scraper of Neolithic date. The knife is formed on a core which has been bi-facially worked to create a relatively thick oval shaped tool. The working present isn't especially neat or well executed the most reworking is evident on the upper (dorsal ) face. Here the edges of the core have been thinned and a series of short, sub-parallel, semi-abrupt retouch has been applied to form a arc shaped cutting and scraping edge. Further on the ventral face less well organised retouch is present in the same area. The other edg…

A complete pecked, ground, and polished stone axe / axehead of probable Neolithic date (3500-2100 BC). The axe is worked from a mid greenish grey coloured igneous rock, with large (between 0.5 and 3.5mm) black, grey, and white coloured angular inclusions. There are also a series of prominent black coloured veins that meander across the polished surface of the axe. The source of the stone is unknown - but it most resembles an Olavante dolerite. This rock could be knapped and worked in a similar way to flint to form tools. The axe is irregular in plan and broadly oval in cross secti…
