Object type: BLADE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Palaeolithic (Upper) to Neolithic (Later) unretouched blade, 51mm long, 20mm wide, 7mm thick and 8.4g in weight. Made on a flint/chert that has turned a multitude of coulours through patination, including lght browns, blues and greys. The distal end still retains its original cortex as do both lateral edges. The central part of the dorsal face exhibits a flaked area of a number of unidirectional scars. Early stages of the creation of a blade core using a cortical nodule of stone presumably from a river.

Palaeolithic (Upper) to Neolithic (Later) unretouched blade, 59mm long, 23mm wide, 12mm thick and 12.7g in weight. Made on a flint/chert that has turned a multitude of coulours through patination, including lght browns, blues and greys. The distal end still retains its original cortex and the right lateral edge is a large flake scar produced by an orthogonal removal. The centre of the dorsal face possesses two small parallel ridges created by unidiretional flaking.

Palaeolithic (Upper) to Neolithic (Later) unretouched blade, 47mm long, 10mm wide, 6mm thick and 2.5g in weight. Made on a light semi-translucent caramel brown flint that has turned an opaque light bluish grey through patination. The blade has been struck from a unidirectional blade core as evidence by a number of blade-like removals on the dorsal face. The blade has not been modified, although the proximal end has been prepared to a similar style as the en eperon style of the Upper Palaeolithic.

Palaeolithic (Upper) to Neolithic (Later) notch, 34mm long, 16mm wide, 4mm thick and 3.1g in weight. This elongated flake has been struck from a unidirectional core and was hard hammer struck. The original colour of the flint cannot be determined as the piece has turned entirely light blue through patination. The notch is situated at the proximal end along the left lateral edge. The dorsal face also shows preparation of the face.

Palaeolithic (Middle) to Bronze Age (Later) notch, 34mm long, 16mm wide, 5mm thick and 3.4g in weight. This notch has been made on a blade that possesses a few Levallois characteristics. The notch itself is positioned along the left lateral edge on the ventral face. The dorsal face possesses a central parallel ridge that looks to have been created on the left by centripetal flaking and on the right by the removal of a previous blade, suggesting a recurrent technique. The flint is opaque and light grey in patination.

Palaeolithic (Middle) to Bronze Age (Later) flake, 35mm long, 21mm wide, 4mm thick and 4.6g in weight. Made on a light grey brown opaque flint that has probably been struck from a discoidal core. The distal end is missing, the flake has a dihedral butt and the dorsal face possesses a number of unidirectional flake scars that run parallel with the axis of the flake.

Palaeolithic (Middle) to Bronze Age (Later) flake, 44mm long, 36mm wide, 9mm thick and 16.4g in weight. The piece is now opaque light grey in colour however small areas indicate that the flint was originally a light caramel brown. This is a hard hammer struck slab-like flake that possesses a number of unidirectional flake scars on the dorsal face. The butt is facetted and the piece stilln retains a small amount of cortex.

Palaeolithic (Lower) to Bronxe Age (Later) flake, 48mm long, 28mm wide, 13mm thick and 17.3g in weight. Made on flint/chert that has turned white through patination. Post-depositional damage has left an area of light grey opaque patination also. Hard hammer struck flake with large butt and pronounced bulb. The dorsal ridges suggest a number of unidirectional removals and some orthogonal working. A central ridge has created a trianglur cross-section. The flake is also curved, due to a slight plunged and. .

Palaeolithic (Upper) to Neolithic (Later) fabricator on a cresting flake, 57mm long, 12mm wide, 8mm thick and 6.6g in weight. Rod shaped piece made on caramel brown semi-translucent flint that has mostly turned light blue through patination. This piece was orginally removed from the core as a cresting flake but has then been utilised as a fabricator. It has been extensively worked on the ventral face and both ends have been rounded through use.

Palaeolithic (Upper) to Neolithic (Later) double-ended scraper, 36mm long, 14mm wide, 3mm thick and 2.4g in weight. The piece is made on a blade struck from a blade core on a light caramel brown translucent flint that has turned mostly blue with patination. The proximal end has been abruptly retouched which has removed the butt and the thin distal end has been abruptly worked as well. The dorsal face has two centrally placed parallel rides that have been made by unidirectional blade flaking.

Palaeolithic (Upper) to Neolithic (Later) double-ended scraper, 40mm long, 23mm wide, 9mm thick and 7.4g in weight. Made on a flint flake that was light orange caramel brown in colour, however the piece has nearly all turned light blue through patination. The proximal end has been worked away by application of semi-abrupt retouch to create one end of the scraper. The distal end has been rounded through semi-abrupt retouch. The dorsal face exhibits unidirectional flake scars with some bidirectional removals towards the distal end to shape the piece.
