Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment polished flint polished flint axehead of Neolithic date, c.4000-2200BC. Description: The fragment represents a middle section of the axehead. possibly forwards the wider blade end, but it is difficult to be certain. All original sides and faces are heavily polished though a number of original (pre-polishing?) or subsequent reworking flake scars are present along both edges. These flake scars may indicate a period of re-edging or similar reworking and further polishing after its initial production. Longitudinal striations caused by the polishing of the surfaces are visible o…

An incomplete rounded flint scraper likely of Neolithic date (c.4000-2200 BC). Description: The scraper survives in an a irregular shape with a long rounded end and pointed recent break opposite. The flaking on the dorsal and the and conchoidal scarring (rippling) on the ventral face are very pronounced which suggest hard hammer technology. The majority of the edge has short, scaled semi-abrupt retouch struck from the dorsal face, save the long broken edge which is formed by a transverse hinge fracture. The flint is an opaque dark brown with mottled areas of lighter patches. Measur…

An incomplete rounded flint scraper likely of Neolithic date (c.4000-2200 BC). Description: The scraper survives in an irregular shape with a long rounded end and pointed recent break opposite. The dorsal face mostly covered in a light beige cortex, indicating the utilisation of a primary flake The flaking on the dorsal and the and conchoidal scarring (rippling) on the ventral face are very pronounced which suggest hard hammer technology. The majority of the edge has short, scaled semi-abrupt retouch struck from the dorsal face, where not broken and abraded which accounts for about 40…

A flint borer likely of Neolithic to Bronze Age date. Description: The borer is sub-triangular in plan with three large and dressed striking platform. There is extensive short scaled low angle retouch along the mesal (sides) of the two dorsal faces, with striking coming in from multiple angles, primarily from the dorsal faces on the right side and from the ventral face on the left. The point appears to remain intact although may have been reworked.. The bulb of percussion and the conchoidal fractures are very pronounced which suggests hard hammer striking. The flint is heavily mottled…

A probable Neolithic flint knife, (c.4000 - c. 2200 BC) Description: The knife is formed from a tertiary flake sub-rectangular in shape with a roughly triangular cross section, the flat face is the ventral side of the flake. The edge is created with short invasive scaled low angle retouch it doesn't extend to each end of the edge and has been worked from both faces. The opposite edge has some crushing at the top corner around a fault in the flint, possibly to blunt a sharp section the knapper didn't deem necessary. The ventral face has a prominent bulb of percussion and clear conchoid…

An irregularly shaped probable flint blade of Neolithic to Bronze Age date. Description: The object is irregularly shaped wiht a long thin blade and a wider square butt. It is formed from a secondary flake with some cortex still remaing at the butt end. The blade is formed from short abrupt retouch which produces shoulders with the butt. the back of the blade is formed by similar crushed short scaled abrupt retouch. All the object's rippling is produced from the hard hammer technique shwo by prominant conchoidal rippling and the ventral face's bulb of percussion. Measurements: 3…

A flint scraper likely of Bronze age date (c. 2200 - 800 BC), utilising an earlier flake. Description: The scraper is sub-triangular (almost teardrop) in shape with a wider outer slightly convex edge, an inner concave edge and a wide body. It is formed from a secondary flake with some cortex remaining on the outer edge. There is retouch along the convex edge formed of short very regular scaled semi-abrupt removals. This retouch goes through flint that has begun to recorticate indicating this retouch occured a substantial amount of time after the production of the flake. The short e…

A near complete flint scraper likely Neolithic-Early Bronze age date (c. 4000 BC - 1000 BC). Description: The scraper is sub triangular in shape and formed from a tertiary flake. There is extensive short scaled semi-abrupt to abrupt retouch along the mesal (sides), which comes in from both the ventral and dorsal facings to create a very slightly curved point. The striking platform and bulb of percussion are very irregular and has been extensively, heavily struck and reshaped removing much of the bulb etc. The bulb of percussion and the conchoidal fractures are very pronounced which…

An irregular 'rounded' flint scraper of uncertain date, likely Late Neolithic to early Bronze Age (c.3300BC - 1000BC). Description: The scraper is rounded with a flatt butt end where the striking plaform is located and a flat right edge. It has heavily worked edges on the dorsal face. The bulb of percussion, flaking and retouch are very pronounced which suggests the use of a hard hammer in their production. Majority of the edge barring the small straight edge on the butt end and can be described as short, scaled semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral edge has substantial reworking that h…

A probable flint hollow scraper of the Neolithic or Bronze Age date c 4000-1000BC. Description: The scraper is made from an irregularly shaped tertiary flake. It is uncertain if it is complete or not due to a break abutting the scraping edge. The sraping edge is short and concave creating a hollow scraping edge formed from invasive scaled semi-abrupt retouch. The flint is mottled mid to light grey with no cortex remaining.

An irregular flint scraper of uncertain date likely late Neolithic (c.3300-2200 BC). Description: The scraper is shaped from a long tertiary flake of flint, sub-rectangular in plan and tirangular in cross-section. it has a scraping edge formed from short, scaled, semi-abrupt retouch along the middle of its right edge of the ventral face covering roughly three quaters of the long edge. The flint is a dark grey mottling to light grey in areas with some off white speckling indicating the start of recortication. Measurements: 54.46mm long. 23mm wide, 9.6mm thick and 13.81g in weight.
