Record ID: IOW-AB5F95
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Neolithic flint axehead (4000 BC- 2351 BC). This axehead is slightly 'humped' on one face, flaked overall on both faces and is asymmetrical lenticular in cross-section. The butt is rounded and the lateral sides flare and then taper slightly inwards to a straight cutting edge. One face is light grey and mottled pale orange with small areas of cortex at the butt end and centre. The other face is light buff/orange with iron staining. The cutting edge appears to have been broken and then re-sharpened on the face with the cortex. The removals on this cutting edge are short, p…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Neolithic polished flint axehead (c. 4000 BC-c. 2351 BC). The butt end is missing due to an oblique break. This axehead is sub-rectangular in plan, roughly 'V'-shaped in side view and pointed oval in cross-section. Towards the truncated oblique butt end it becomes more rounded in cross-section. It has been bi-facially flaked all over and then partially ground and polished. It is possible that the cutting edge broke and was then re-worked and modified for a specific function. The surfaces, including the break at the butt, have a shiny off-white patina with reddish-brown…

Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete Neolithic flint leaf arrowhead (4000 BC-2350 BC). A incomplete broad leaf-shaped arrowhead formed from a thin flake. The tip is lost but what remains suggests that the object was of elongated ogival form when complete. Both sides are invasively worked and retouch around the edges of both sides are short, low angled and parallel. This arrowhead is grey and semi-translucent. It is unclear whether the tip of the arrowhead was lost in antiquity or recently. Length: 33.3mm; width: 19.2mm; thickness: 3.2mm. Weight: 2.09g.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age flint scraper (c. 2700 BC-c. 1600 BC). This scraper, produced on a primary flake, is sub-oval in plan being wider at the distal end than the proximal end where there is a stiking platform. The distal end has been retouched to form a cutting or scraping edge. The removals are long, parallel and semi-abrupt. The edge itself has been battered or is damaged through use. The ventral face has a bulb of percussion with a percussion scar. About 75% of the dorsal face has an off-white/greyish cortex. The ventral face is brown with creamy mott…
