  • Thumbnail image of NARC-5E113B

Record ID: NARC-5E113B
Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Buckinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint Handaxe/knife of Upper Palaeolithic to Neolithic date (150,000-3450 BC). The lithic is sub-triangular plan and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surface has long scaled flaking and retains cortex along the proximal left hand edge. There is evidence of hinged flake removal along the mesal section. The distal, right and left hand edges have rough semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface has covering scaled flaking with a minor amount of retained cortex along the proximal right hand edge. The majority of both the ventral and distal surfaces are covered with recortificat…

Record ID: NARC-6F742E
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete Scraper/Blade of Upper Palaeolithic to Mesolithic date (250,000-5,500 BC). The object is a probable Long Blade of the long blade industries of Southern and eastern England. This industry is attributed to the transition from Pleistocene to Holocene. The object is sub-rectangular in plan and concavo-convex in section. The dorsal surface is convex and contains five predominant negative scars. Both the proximal and distal ends are blunted with the proximal end having one large deep negative scar. The left hand distal edge has a minor amount of fine low angle retouch. The ventra…

Record ID: NARC-6F5758
Object type: CORE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint Core of Upper Palaeolithic to Early-Mesolithic date (250,000-5,500 BC). The object is a probable Long Blade core of the long blade industries of Southern and eastern England. This industry is attributed to the transition from Pleistocene to Holocene. The object is cylindrical with one clear striking platform, the other end is rounded and covered with cortex, as is approximately 25% of the surface. There are eight negative scars with corresponding arrises. One of the scars was produced by hinged flake removal toward the rounded or proximal end. The scars are long and p…

Record ID: NARC-47F073
Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint Handaxe of Upper Palaeolithic date (150,00-10,000 BC). The lithic is sub-triangular plan and concavo-convex in section. The dorsal surface has long scaled flaking to the left and right hand edges. The mesal and proximal edges are covering in retained cortex. The distal, right and left hand edges have abrupt retouch. The ventral surface has covering scaled flaking. The lithic retains a large amount cortex and is therefore a primary flake. The flint is a light orange/brown in colour with grey inclusions throughout, the cortex is a mid-brown in colour.

County: Northamptonshire

A complete flint Scraper of Upper Palaeolithic date (150,00-10,000 BC). The lithic is sub-triangular plan and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surface has covering scaled flaking. The proximal end has been abruptly blunted and all other edges have fine semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface has long scaled flaking. There is some cortex retained along the proximal left and right hand edges. The lithic retains a minor amount of cortex and is therefore a secondary flake. The flint is dark grey in colour with cream inclusions throughout, the cortex is light brown in colour.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint Side Scraper of Upper Palaeolithic date (150,00-10,000 BC). The lithic is sub-rectangular plan and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surface has one shallow negative scar at the proximal end and ripples of percussion emanating from the proximal end. The proximal end has been blunted and all other edges have rough abrupt retouch. Both the left and right hand edges have minor amounts of short scaled flaking. The ventral surface has seven predominant negative scars with corresponding arrises. There is some cortex retained along the distal and right hand edges. The lith…
