Record ID: BERK-6D4C77
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A piece of flint debitage in the form of a blade of probable later Mesolithic to Neolithic date (c. 8000 - 3000 BC). The flake retains the bulb of percussion. The flake has suffered modern damage to its dorsal surface and edges; there may be some limited retouching along part of one lateral edge on the ventral side, however it is partly obscured by modern edge damage. The flint is a mottled grey to grey-brown in colour. Uncertain prehistoric date.

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two unretouched flint blades (production debitage) of later prehistoric date, probably Mesolithic or Neolithic (c. 8000-3000 BC). Both blades retain their bulbs of percussion, platform and show radiating fracture lines. Several previous removals, suggestive of bladelet / microlith production (Mesolithic), are visible as flake scars. One piece of debitage retains 33% cortex, the other is a tertiary piece.

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint leaf-shaped arrowhead dating to the early Neolithic period. The arrowhead is formed from a piece of mottled blue/ grey flint which has a heavily calcified outer surface, suggesting a chalk downland source. The arrowhead has been extensively retouched on both ventral and dorsal face, with some post-depositional damage evident. At the proximal end of the arrowhead there is the impression of notching on either edge, which may indicate the beginnings of the creation of a tang, however the surfaces in this area are not consistent with the rest of the arrowhead and these notches are…

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A transverse or oblique arrowhead dating to the later Neolithic period (c. 4000-2350 BC). Made from a light grey and white flint (tertiary flake), covering scalar retouch leaves distinction between dorsal and ventral faces uncertain. There is also post-depositional damage on both surfaces and all edges. The colour of the flint and the white patina suggests a chalk downland source for the raw material. Suggested date: Late Neolithic, 2700-2350 BC.

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete but slightly damaged struck flint end and side scraper of later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2300 -1800BC). The scraper is broadly D-shaped in pland and section and is formed on a tertiary flake of mottled light and dark grey flint; flake scars on the dorsal surface show previous removals. The platform has suffered post-depositional (weathering) damage and most of the bulb scar has been removed / is missing, however the percussion lines are retained on the ventral side. The dorsal surface bares soft-hammer retouch along c.60% of the left lateral, irregularly around th…

A complete struck flint horseshoe scraper of later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2300 -1800BC). The scraper is broad and sub-rectangular in plan and sub-oval shape in profile with a D-shaped section. The scraper is formed on a tertiary flake of dark grey flint with the nose of the scaper located at the ventral end. The platform has therefore been removed however percussion lines are evident on the ventral surface. There is also a hinge-like fracture at the distal end. The dorsal surface bares invasive, stepped, semi-abrupt retouch around the curved lateral and proximal edges; the…

A flint nose scraper on a plunging blade from a double platformed core, therefore of Mesolithic or Neolithic date (c. 8000-2400 BC). The object is formed on a tertiary flake of a mottled grey flint. There are three, if not more, two-directional removals visible on the dorsal surface; although neither platform survives, this is indicitive of a double platformed core. The thinner distal end has some fine soft hammer retouch on its tip which has lead to its identification as a nose scraper, however this may also have been the result of removal or preperation of the platform. This is prob…

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: West Berkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A secondary flint flake, debris from flint working (debitage). The flake is broadly triangular in plan and retains the platform and bulb of percussion. Previous removals are evident on its dorsal surface. A small area of cortex (c.5%) is retained on the distal end. The flint is mottled grey in colour. Due to being generally undiagnostic dating can only be prehistoric, generally Mesolithic to Early Bronze Age in date although more likely to be of later Mesolithic to Neolithic in date (c. 6000-2300 BC).

Two flint debitage fragments, waste flakes from flint tool production. Both flakes are small and bladelet-like in form. The orange coloured flake retains the platform and bulb of percussion and has evidence of previous removals on its dorsal surface. The second flake, also a tertiary removal, is grey in colour and has evidence of previous removals on its dorsal side, but does not retain the platform or bulb and has suffered post-depositional damage. Although hard to date accurately, these flakes are likely to date from the Mesolithic to Neolithic period, c. 8000-2400 BC.

A broken fragment of a flake from flint working debris (debitage). The flake is broken at either end, so the middle part survives while the distal and proximal ends are missing. The flint is a mottled grey in colour and shows evidence of previous flake removals on its dorsal surface. This flake is later prehistoric in date but cannot be dated closer than Neolithic to Early Bonze Age.

Three small pieces flint working debitage, or 'chips', two of which are c.1cm in length. The larger fragment (no.1) retains under 10% cortex on one edge and has the bulb of percussion evident. It is a dark mottled grey in colour. The second piece (no. 2) retains no cortext or bulb and is broken at its distal end. This flint is grey in colour with a milky white outer surface. The third piece (no. 3) is a small chip with no bulb but lines of percussions on its dorsal surface. It has a point at the proximal end but this is just a result of the fracturing and not intentional. The flint is…

Record ID: BERK-8CD431
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete ground or polished stone axehead of Neolithic date, c. 4000-2500 BC made from an igneous greenstone. The axe is in very good condition; the cutting edge is still relatively sharp and shows only minor use-wear to the naked eye. One side of the cutting edge is more polished than the opposing side, having a much smoother feel. Grinding occurs after 4000 BC, so this axe is likely to have a date range of between 4000-2500 BC. Axes were ground using large stones used for the purpose. Grinding or polishing axes was a manfuacturing technique which produced less facets than knapp…
