A flint core of uncertain age possibly Paleolithic in date. Description: The core is roughly oval in plan with and a roughly semi-circular cross-section. It has substantial shaping removals off one face and two large removals on the other. The largest of these, which was produced with a pressure hinge fracture removal may have produced a rounded scraping flake. The striking platform of this flake had substantial flaking preparation before its removal. The core is a mid-caramel brown colour. Measurements: 65.9mm long, 44.36mm wide, 28.85mm thick and 86.23g in weight. Discussio…

A flint hammerstone of uncertain prehistoric date. Description: Is roughly semi-circular in cross-section. The hammerstone has large amounts of crushing at the rounded end and accidental removals along two faces indicating its use a a hammerstone. The flatter sides may have been prepared for its uses as a hammerstone as the intentional flakes helping flatten these edges. The edges of the flat end have also had intentional crushing to blunt the edges to make it safer to use, this can be described as invasive scaled abrupt retouch. The other sides are rounded and covered in cortex. h…

Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: UNKNOWN
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An irregular copper-alloy probable cast finger-ring, likely Bronze Age/Iron Age or Early-medieval in date. Discussion: The ring is roughly D-shaped in plan with a much thinner flatter edge flatter. The band varies in cross section from circular to D-shaped. The ring is heavily patinated and pitted. Measurements:27.27mm wide, 23.97mm high, 4.18mm thick and 6.77g in weight. Discussion: Plain finger-rings are very difficult to date, the very crude nature of this example would suggested a Bronze Age to Early-Medieval date, although with no decoration and crude production makes an…
