Object type: BORER
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Possible Early Neolithic (-3500 to -2900) knapped flint borer or piercer: The borer is an asymmetrical sub rectangle in plan with an off centre protrusion from the lower edge. This protrusion is possibly a fragment of the piercer of the borer which is purposefully knapped, although the tip may be missing. The ventral surface has a single negative flake scar, and conchoidal rings, bulbar scars and a bulb of percussion. The dorsal surface has three vertical negative flake scars. The flint is a mottled mid grey colour. It measures 38.22mm long and 18.67mm wide. It weighs 4.7g. The borer …

Early Neolithic (c. 4,000 to 2351 BC) microlith knapped from a mottled dark grey flint hich has a waxy texture. The dorsal surface has two vertical scars, and there is a trace of a white patina suggesting the it has been made from an older flake.A lateral edge has retouch along its length which is abrupt and short. The distal end appears to have been purposely truncated. It measures 34.46mm long, 10.67mm wide, 5.98mm thick and weighs 2.58g. This is probably an early Neolithic serrated blade (Butler, 2005;130).

Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date (c.2700 BC to c.1600 BC) plano-convex knife: The knapped flint knife is an elongated oval, with a sub D-shaped cross section and was probably knapped from a secondary flake/debitage. The dorsal surface has stepped retouch covering the surface with low abrupt re-touch along the edges, thereby forming a convex surface. The distal end has a patch of cortex remaining. The ventral surface has stepped low abrupt re-touch on one lateral edge and semi-abrupt retouch on the other. The flint is a dark mottled grey-brown colour which is opaque. …
