  • Thumbnail image of LEIC-7F3634

Record ID: LEIC-7F3634
Object type: BLADE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Neolithic (Early) to Bronze Age (Later) retouched blade, 29mm long, 12mm wide, 3mm thick and 1.2g in weight. Made on a flake struck from a small pebble that is a translucent caramel brown flint. The dorsal face possesses an area of bluish patina that suggests that the piece had already started this process before being struck by human hand. The proximal end possesses a small area of flake scars which relate to core working. Some cortex also remains on the dorsal face.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Mesolithic (Early) to Neolithic (Later) point, 32mm long, 13mm wide, 4mm thick and 1.6g in weight. Made on a blade that has a light blue patina all over it. The proximal end possesses a diliberate step fracture and further notched working to thin the piece for hafting. The distal end forms the point and has broken at the tip, probably due to impact damage. On the dorsal face near the tip both lateral edges have been abruptly retouched.

Neolithic (Early) to Bronze Age (Later) notched piece, 31mm long, 12mm wide, 5mm thick and 1.8g in weight. Made on a small broken blade on mid brown translucent flint that has started to darken through patination. Notched area is on the right lateral edge near the proximal end. The dorsal face retains some cortex and the butt was prepared, although it looks as though this piece was soft hammer struck. .

Neolithic (Early) to Bronze Age (Later) side-scraper, 42mm long, 18mm wide, 12mm thick and 10.1g in weight. Made on a flake struck from a river pebble, the flint was once semi-translucent caramel brown but the mid grey patina that is covering much of the flake has turned it opaque. Small area of retouch along the left lateral edge on the ventral face. Retouch is quite abrupt and almost serated.

Mesolithic (Early) to Neolithic (Later) retouched blade, 38mm long, 13mm wide, 4mm thick and 2.5g in weight. The dorsal face of this piece is mostly cortical. A small area on the right lateral edge has been semi-abruptly retouched on the dorsal face wheareas there is a notch on the ventral face of the left lateral edge. The proximal end displays some evidence for small unidirectional removals that presumably were for the purpose of preparation. The flint is translucent light caramel brown that has turned mostly grey through patination.
