A complete Neolithic to early Bronze Age flint borer. It is formed on a secondary flake with cortex still covering part of the dorsal face.

Flint awl and/or scraper, probably of Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. Secondary flake, with cortex remaining along the left edge of the dorsal face. The object tapers to a point at the distal end, but the very tip is now missing. Both sides taper inwards very slightly at the proximal end. There are several long, thin removals on the dorsal face. There is very fine low-angle, short, parallel retouch along the left edge of the dorsal face. The flint is mid to light grey in colour with a speckled, milky, matt patina. It has a very small butt and prominent bulb and ripple lines on the …

Flint borer, probably of Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. Secondary flake. There are a few large removals on the dorsal face. Long, stepped, semi-abrupt to abrupt retouch along the left edge of the dorsal face has caused this edge to curve inwards. Further stepped, abrupt retouch towards the distal end, also curving inwards, has created a protruding borer between these two sections. There is further very fine, short, low angle, parallel retouch along the right edge of the doral face, becoming much longer and more uneven towards the proximal end. The butt is wide and there is no visi…

Flint borer, probably of Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. Secondary flake. The object is sub-triangular in shape, tapering to a rounded point at the distal end. Most edges of the object show scaled, abrupt to semi-abrupt, short retouch and the bulb has been completely removed. The left edge, when viewed from the ventral face has larger removals, with a single removal at the distal end creating a sharp edge to the pointed section. The flint is light grey in colour with lighter patches in places and a matt patina. Length: 43.09mm, Width: 21.16mm, Thickness: 3.96mm, Weight: 3.2g

Flint piercer or borer. The borer has been created on a long-thin, tertiary flake. The dorsal face is convex and covered with four long flaking scars. At the proximal end a small spur has been created by removing a concave section to the left. The flint has a milky patina, but this is missing where removals have created the spur, suggesting that an earlier flake may have been reused. The implement is probably of Neolithic to early Bronze Age date, though the flake may be earlier.

A probable flint spurred piece of Neolithic or early Bronze Age date. The object is roughly leaf shaped. The ventral face is concave and the dorsal convex. The dorsal face has six long flaking scars on its surface, with a further two smaller ones shaping the distal end into a point. The very tip of the distal end appears to be missing.
