Seven (7) microliths, formed from snapped blades of probable Mesolithic date (6500-3500 BC). A number of the microliths have been formed from a section of blade which has been snapped obliquely to form a point - this creates a 'backed / blunted' microlith . All are broadly sub-rectangular in plan and lentoid in cross section. All have been reworked with regular evenly spaced flakes. The colour of the flint ranges from a light grey to a dark bropwn colour. The largest microlith measures: 21.8mm length, 5.9mm width, is 1.8mm thick and weighs 0.27 grams. The smallest blade measures: 9.4…

24 complete and snapped flint blades or bladlets of later Mesolithic date (6000BC - 3500BC). These blades are struck from a core and have the generic crested appearance on their dorsal faces. Many of the blades have been deliberately snapped through the removal of side notches and deliberate breaking. The underside / ventral face of each shows conchoidal rippling and some have evidence of bulb of percussion and / or striking platforms. All the blades have some form of retouch along their long edges - this is best described as being disorganised short, sub-parallel, semi-abrupt which cr…

A secondary flake of light grey coloured debitage or segment implement of probable Mesolithic to Neolithic date (c. 10,000 - 2351 BC). The flake is rectangular and trapezoidal in section, but is perhaps too thick to be a blade. The distal end tapers at one corner and is broken. It measures 27.76mm in length, 11.72mm in width, 5.32mm thick and weighs 1.98grams. Butler (2005) illustrates a similar implement on Figure 46, No. 7.

An incomplete snapped flint blade of probable later Mesolithic or early Neolithic date (6000BC - 3500BC). The flint tool, probably best described as a knife, is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and sub-triangular (crested) in cross section. The blade has been snapped un the upper and lower edges. The bulb of percussion and striking / knapping platform are lost on the lower (ventral) face. The upper (dorsal) face of the blade has a number of clear facets and ridges. Both the long edges have been retouched on the dorsal faces; the retouch is best described as being disorganised short, sub…

A Mesolithic microlith / blade / bladelet (7,000 to 4,000 BC), grey in colour. This piece is sub-rectilinear in plan and sub-rectilinear in section, tapering to a point at the distal end. The dorsal face comprises 3 main facets, whilst the ventral face is virtually featureless, save a faint bulb of percussion detectable when felt. One edge displays possible irregular hardhammer retouch, however this could also be due to plough damage. Both the proximal and distal ends show signs of being deliberately snapped This piece weighs 0.25 grams, measuring 12mm in length, 6mm in width and 2.2m…

A snapped flint piece of tertiary debitage blade of later Mesolithic date (4000 -3000BC). The blade is rectangular in plan and has a crested cross section. The striking platform and bulb of percussion are present on the ventral face and the blade has been snapped near the mid-point; the break is old and patinated. The two long edges show some evidence of reworking - although this mostly seems to be unorganised direct retouch - there is also some possibility that this retouch could be caused by movement in the soil. The flint is a mid-grey colour with a milky white coloured patina. …

PAS-RC07 Grid A2 A small snapped blade of later Mesolithic date (5500 - 3500 BC). The blade is broadly rectangular in plan and rhomboid in section. The upper dorsal face has a series of linear flake scars present created by the removal of other blades from the core. The reverse (ventral) shows conchoidal fractures, bulb of percussion and striking platform. The blade was originally much longer but the lower part is now lost / detached possibly via flaking in the Mesolithic. The two long edges both exhibit retouch creating serrated edges. The flint is a mid grey brown colour with …

A stone perforated object of probable Mesolithic to Neolithic date. The artefact has been made from a light greyish-brown quartzite pebble and is sub-oval in plan, with a lenticular cross section. The extent to which this form is natural (i.e. river worn), or has been achieved through deliberate grinding, is uncertain. The surfaces bear several shallow scratches, some of which may be contemporary with the production of the piece, others possibly being the result of post-depositional damage. Near the centre point of each of the two convex surfaces there is a circular depression, the…

Flint blade like flake of later Mesolithic date (4000 -3000 BC). The flake is broadly rectangular in plan and has a crested (triangular shaped) cross section. The striking platform and bulb of percussion are both present. The external edges have been retouched and an irregular removal is present on one edge- the area around this is retouched possibly suggesting the removal shape had a specific use. The blade is a mid brown grey colour. It measures: 19.4mm in length, 14.4mm width, is 3.9mm thick and weighs 0.72 grams.

Two flint blades of later Mesolithic date (4000 -3000 BC). Both blades are rectangular in plan and have crested (triangular shaped) cross sections. They are also both small but complete showing prepared striking platform and bulb of percussion. The larger blade is a mid black grey colour; the long edges show no signs of retouch (although they are abraded in the plough soil). The base of the dorsal face shows a distinct overhang where the removal of the previous blade had left a small projection caused by a hinge fracture. The smaller blade a mid brown grey colour and has a is distinctl…
