Record ID: HESH-DDC421
Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete but heavily rolled / abraded ovate-like handaxe of probable Palaeolithic date. In plan the axe is broadly oval in plan (with a relatively wide flat butt and pointed tip); and it is a pointed oval shape in profile. In cross section the axe has a clear humped shape. The axehead is bi-facially worked although some of the flakes on both the dorsal and ventral faces are invasive with hinge fractures suggesting they are a result of uncontrolled 'natural flaking' through movement in the soil. The dorsal (upper) face of the axe has been worked in many differing directions and contr…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A large flint flake, with evidence of secondary working / retouch, probably dating to the later (upper) Palaeolithic period (40,000 -8,300 BC). The flake is irregular in both plan and profile. The ventral (reverse) face of the flake exhibits a small bulb of percussion; however, the wave like ripples from the blow cannot be seen. Above the bulb of percussion is a small striking platform. The dorsal (upper) face has also a number of scars where flakes have been removed. This has left the body of the flint flake with several dish-like scars. The dorsal also has two areas of cortex (the ou…
