Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A bifacially flaked flint handaxe of cleaver form dating to the Lower Palaeolithic c.500,000-250,000 BC. Description: The handaxe has a rounded butt, wider middle and a blunt 'blade' end. It has been bifacially worked, with flaking covering both sides, this has been uneven however leaving one side much thicker than the other leavining plano-convex in cross-section. The edges are defined by invasive, scaled, low angled retouch. One side from the wide middle to the butt has been knapped straight with short scaled abrupt retouch retouch in a crushing manner to blunt edge. Some of the fl…

An incomplete lower to middle Palaeolithic flint handaxe of 500,000 - 180,000 BC date. Description: The axe is irregularly slightly twisted ovoid in section and in plan is roughly cordate. It has been bifacial flaked with invasive, scaled, low angled retouch. The wide rounded butt end remains in good condition although there is some light brown cortex still adhering to one face.the blade end is has large seciton missing predominatly on one face which has smashed through the patination. This damage appears to have taken place in antiquity. The patination is light white where the fresh…

A small incomplete oval handaxe of the Acheulian flint industry dating c. 500,000-180,000 BC Description: The handaxe is bifacial worked with covering flaking. The butt end is very subtly wider than the 'blade' end. The butt end has some haphazard attempts to blunt it. There is large section of damage on the bottom left of one side that distorts the full shape and due to the even patination happened far back in antiquity. The profile is uneven and somewhat twisted akin to those recorded from Rickson's Pit and Person's Pit in Dartford, Northern Kent (illustrated by Roe 1981, 77. nos. 5…

County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A large probable scraper of lower to middle Palaeolithic date, probably lat middle Palaeolithic c.60,000BC-40,000BC, which has been subsequently reworked and modified at a latter date. Description: The tool has a wide curved scraper or crude chopper edge formed from short to invasive stepped semi-abrupt retouch mostly from the dorsal face (upper/front). In plan the side run diagonally inwards to a shorter straight edge giving it an overall shape of a modern axehead in plan. The upper diagonal sides has been reworked form both faces to create a point with invasive scaled semi-abrupt re…

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT

County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lithic tool uncertain date, possibly heat affected and also utilised as a hammer stone. Likely upper Paleolithic (c.40000-11000) or Neolithic-Early Bronze age date (c. 4000 BC - 1000 BC). Description: The tool is roughly ovoid with a heavy cortex area in the centre of one side. The base has had flaking away from the centre leaving an apex point at the centre and the entire flint triangle in cross-section. The bifacial working can be described as invasive to covering, scaled and semi-abrupt. Parts of the flint have been heat affected and then battered likely indicating the object's s…

A possible lithic implement or point possibly dating from the Lower Palaeolithic to Early Middle Palaeolithic c.450,000-180,000 BC. Description: The implement is formed from a triangular tetiary flake With the right edge being formed by invasive scaled semi-abrupt retouch. The left edge has short scaled abrupt retouch. The striking platform at the base of the implement has been battered and finished. The patination is heavy and leaves it a light brown colour. Measurements: 47.41mm long, 43.61mm wide, 12.09mm thick and 23g in weight. Discussion: The degree of wear and patination of t…

A large irregular bifacially worked lithic tool possiblyof middle Palaeolithic date, c.250000 - 40000 BC. Description: The object is discoidal but very thick and very uneven. There is no primary striking platform but a number of strikes from the edge and from the centre of the object. It has no clear edges but would have produced large curved flakes. There is a large central patch of cortex on one side and has frequent inclusions and similar which would have made working with the object difficult. The flaking retouch on this tool can be described as invasive scaled semi-abrupt It is …

An irregular flint scraper of uncertain date, possibly late Middle Palaeolithic (c.60,000-40,000 BC). Description: The scraper is formed from a single flaked piece of lint and irregularly shaped. It is quite thick and has cortex is present on the right edge of the scraper. There is flaking across both sides and there is no clear ventral or dorsal face. The bulb of percussion and conchoidal scarring (rippling) is quite obscured and variable. There is very short retouch along the top right distal edge retouch is short, scaled semi-abrupt to abrupt retouch from one angle and invasive sca…

A D-shaped chopper likely of lower Palaeolithic date c.420,000BC - c. 374,000BC. Description: The denticulate is formed from a roughly D-shaped secondary flint flake. With uneven semi-abrupt retouch along the rounded edge, angled from the dorsal face. Some of the retouch forms two concave dips in the edge which appear to have been intentional, this creates a s-shaped choping edge. The blub of percussion is on the ventral face is very subtle and some attempts appears to have been made to remove much of it. The flat edge is mostly still covered in cortex, with no attempt made to remove …

With mixed low angle-scaled retouch along the top and right hand edges of the dorsal face. Very little other flaking has occured on that facing. Signicant crushing and blunting has occured ont he straightish edge (left edge of the dorsal face) clearly with the intent to blunt the edge.

The left edge of the dorsal face has been heavily battered in antiquty and it is uncertain if this was part of an attempt to blunt the edge or accidental, althoguh a seciton has a clear segment of of short scaled abrupt edge.

A Middle Palaeolithic probable Levalloisian scraper c. 250,000BC - 60, 000BC. Description:A roughly hemispherical flake with substantial flaking across the ventral face including and area of hinge fractures. The flaking appears intentionally to have shaped the flint that while still on the core, typical of levallois flint technology. There is a scraping edge from the top middle edge of the ventral face running down to the right side of the edge. The retouch is very varied but mostly long scaled stepped semi-abrupt retouch, the retouch comes in from both sides and gets finer on the ver…

A lower-Palaeolithic massive D-shaped scraper, c. 800, 000BC - 150, 000BC . Description: The scraper is roughly D-shaped. The bulb of percussion on the ventral face has been removed by later flaking. The flaking, which has generally taken off very large flakes, covers much of the surface and has left significant conchoidal scaring (rippling) likely due to hard hammer manufacture. The striking platform at the proximal end is also very large. There is some limited retouch along the dorsal edge, which is short, scaled and semi-abrupt. There is some flaking and retouch which may have occu…

A lithic implement, likely of the Lower Palaeolithic Acheulian flint industry, dating from the Lower Palaeolithic to Early Middle Palaeolithic c.450,000-180,000 BC. Description: The implement is sub-triangular shape with one rounded edge. The entire surface has large covering flaking with some medium parallel retouch to create the scraper edge. The other end is pointed and, while the object is bifacially flaked it is too small to be classified as a handaxe. The flint is a medium orangey brown with some medium brown iron staining. There appears to be some desert gloss on the scraper wi…

A Late Glacial flint shouldered point, c.10000BC, Later Upper Palaeolithic The point is highly abraded and missing its point due to a diagnonal break from the top right to middle left. The shoulder however is viisble on the left side imediately before the break. The dorsal face has long shallow covering flaking but short scaled abrupt retouch on the edge, where visible. The ventral face has a very subtle bulb of percussion, as well as nearly invisble conchoidal scaring.
