Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint core possibly produced with the Levallois technique and dating from the Early Middle Palaeolithic to Late Middle Palaeolithic c.13,000 - 2200 BC. Description: The object is roughly rectangular with a rounded end. The flat end has a single subtantial striking platform and appears ot have substnatial shaping around its edges. The heavy wear and paitnation obscures much for the flaking making its itended use uncertain. Measurements: 85.51mm long, 56.76mm wide, 29.82mm thick and 145.20g in weight.

A bifacially flaked flint handaxe of sub-cordate form dating to the Lower Palaeolithic c.500,000-250,000 BC. Description: The handaxe has a rounded butt, wider middle and a rounded pointed cutting end. It has been bifacially worked, with flaking covering both sides, this has been uneven however leaving one side with a deep uneven hinge fracture. In cross-section the handaxe is a pointed oval. The edges are defined by invasive, scaled, angled retouch. The blade edge narrows but not quite to a point but quite thick so is likely sub-cordate. The flint is unpatinated and a dark grey-brown…

An incomplete probable ovate flint handaxe of Lower Palaeolithic date (500,000 - 180,000 BC), Description: The handaxe is incomplete and has a heavily tumbled surface. It was produced via bifacial working with one face being almost entirely destroyed by damage leaving it rough and pitted. The point is rounded and one edge of the remaining face is incomplete also. The flint is the characteristic light brown-orangey 'toffee' colour with some brown to light brown iron staining typical of Palaeolithic flint finds Measurements:79.65mm long, 57.03mm wide, 20.21mm thick and 84.75g in weight.

Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible Mousterian point of Middle Palaeolithic date. Description: The point is roughly triangular in plan and cross-section, with an apparently facetted but end although this is heavily worn. The point is formed by long flaked removals with retouch heavily obscured by patination and recortication but appears to be long scaled low angle retouch. The conchoidal rippling on the flaking is substantial on the dorsal face while the bulb and conchoidal rippling on the ventral side is very subtle, indicating mixed technique used in its production. The flint is heavily patinated white with…

A flint double ended scraper probably of late Mesolithic to Neolithic date, c.8000BC - 3300BC, an early date as early as the upper later Palaeothic cannot be discounted. Description: The scraper has two rounded ends and two flat perpendicular edges, leaving it irregular in shape. The dorsal face has uneven flaking.

A fragment of uncertain bifacially worked lithic implement of possibly of Lower Paleothic date c.500,000-250,000. Description: The fragment is irregularly shaped, with one rounded end (the butt end?), roughly straight sides and a large jagged break at the opposite butt end. There is invasive, scaled low angle retouch across much of it was some short scaled abrupt retouch around the butt end possibly blunting the edge. The large break across the tools width is relatively old as it has begun to recorticate and patinate again. Where visible the fressh flint is pale grey-brown, the patina…

An uncertain flaked lithic implement probably dating to the early-Middle - early Upper Palaeolithic. Description: The object is formed from a secondary flake and is pointed with a wide rounded butt end. The dorsal face is slightly dished from a previous flake removal. There is invasive flaking along the edges of the dorsal edges. The point is formed from invasive retouch from both the dorsal and ventral faces. This work around the point obliterates evidence of the bulb of percussion, the conchoidal rippling on the ventral side is relatively subtle although still visible. The flint is …

A probable flint denticulate of probable early Palaeolithic date. Description: The denticulate is formed from a curved tear drop shaped (in plan) secondary flake with a wider butt end and serration and denticulate removals on the concave edge. The distal face is slightly dished from a previous large removal and has short scaled abrupt retouch, creating a denticulate saw edge formed by two steeply retouched notches. The flint has smooth white cortex along the convex edge of the flint and is very smooth, allowing ease of use. The flint is white grey and has substantial off-white cortex…

The tip of a bifacially flaked flint handaxe dating from the Lower Palaeolithic c.500,000-250,000 BC. Description: The handaxe survives only as a the pointed tip and is roughly pointed. It has been bifacially worked, with flaking covering both sides, this has been uneven however leaving one side much thicker than the other leaving it plano-convex in cross-section.

A probable flint burin dating from the Upper-Palaeolithic to early Neolithic date, although earlier date seems likely. Description: The burin is formed from a small flake of pointed flake, with one long edge. The triangular point has a long edges with some flaking on, which actually has short scaled semi-abrupt retouch at the proximal end (end where the flake was removed) and short edge with scaled short abrupt retouching flattening this edge. A spall or burin removal from this retouched platform created by this crushing/flattening retouch. This burin retouch creates a small gaugin…

A large possible lower-middle Palaeolithic flint scraper. Description: The object is formed from an irregular flint flake triangular in cross-section. The dorsal face is quite high which helps form this cross section. The bulb of percussion on the reverse is fairly shallow although the discoidal rippling is very pronounced. There is a removal flake across where the bulb of percussion which suggest a level of shaping. The wide outside edge of the tool appears to be the working edge with short scaled abrupt retouch along a small section abutting the striking platform end. The rest of…

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.

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…

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.

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'…
