Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Flake of Prehistoric flint debitage, probably of Neolithic or Bronze Age date, c. 4,000-1,600 BC. A tertiary flake of mottled grey-brown flint exhibiting a diffuse bulb of purcussion, with bulbar scar, and with the striking platform worked away at the proximal end. Both removal scars on the dorsal face were struck from roughly the same direction. The flake exhibits low angle, long, sub-parallel retouch along the distal end of the ventral face, with a more limited amount on the distal. The left edge of the proximal end of the dorsal face exhibits short, semi-abrupt, scalar retouch. D…

Three small blades of flint debitage, probably of Mesolithic or Neolithic date, c. 11,000-4,000BC. All are tertiary blades, with two incomplete, one missing the proximal end, the other the distal. Where they survive, the bulbs of percussion are diffuse, with evidence of abrasion at the proximal end suggesting platform preparation. All three blades exhibit largely parallel negative removals on the dorsal face, struck from the same platform as the over all removals. The blade missing its distal end has a notch worked into either side alog its length, on the left edge at the distal end an…
