Fifty Eight (58) fragments of secondary flint waste / debitage of Neolithic date (3500-2100 BC). All of the flakes are from secondary phase of working / flaking and are a direct result of preparation of flint tools. Most show clear signs of direct hard hammer knapping and the majority have been removed with minimal loss of flint from the nodule / core. The cortex is all mid grey in colour and the majority is chalk derived. The majority of the flint is a light grey through to black colour, although some pieces have milky white surface patina. This collection is from an assemblage of la…

The dorsal faces have a number of irregular and regular flake scars. The more rectangular flake (2) has some signs of deliberate retouch forming a slightly waisted profile at …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A near complete axe head formed of a coarse grained igneous rock dating from the later Neolithic date (3000-2000 BC). The axe has been knapped and pecked into shape although the surface is heavily weathered. The rock from which it is made is a mid-brown fine grained igneous - possibly a diorite with significant inclusions of elongated rectangular black crystals - possibly biotite of hornblende. There is considerable mid orange staining across the body of the axe and this maybe as a result of the burial environment - possibly indicating deposition within soils that are iron rich or have…

An early to middle Neolithic ovate 'laurel leaf like' knife, dating from the period c. 3500-2900 BC. The tool is formed on a mid-orange yellow mottled coloured pieced coarse 'local flint'. In plan the flake is a pointed oval or cordate shape and in cross section it is broadly sub-oval (D-shaped). The tool is formed on a broad blade like flake; the ventral face shows conchoidal ridges and the blade has been struck from a prepared core. The upper / dorsal face shows two parallel ridges. The long edges have been reworked bifacially using both hard and soft hammer being neat and well orga…

County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete leaf shaped flint arrowhead of probable earlier Neolithic date (4000 - 2700 BC) formed on a tertiary flake. The arrowhead is ogival / lentoid (a diamond shaped lozenge) in plan and lentoid in cross section. The arrowhead has been knapped from a mottled light-grey to brown flint which is opaque in places. Both faces of the flint show invasive, scaled, low angled retouch, with one face showing a slight scar, probably caused by a plough or similar machinery. The form is similar in shape to Green's Class 3B or 4B The arrowhead measures 26.5mm length, 14.9mm width, is 2.6mm thic…

Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2500 - 1500 BC) thumbnail scraper formed on a mid grey flake of flint. The flake is broad and squat being recently snapped at the mid point - originally it would have been oval in plan but now is D shaped; in cross section it is broadly sub-rectangular. The flint flake is well preserved - evidence for retouch or secondary working can be seen along curved external edge of the flake. This retouch is sort, sub-parallel and abrupt in nature. The retouch is well applied and controlled suggesting skill and competitence.Thumb nail scrapers are seen as …

Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2500 - 1500 BC) thumbnail scraper formed on a mid grey piece of tertiary debitage. The flint flake is broad and squat being oval in plan and sub-rectangular in cross section. The flint flake is not well preserved - evidence for retouch or secondary working can be seen along two edges of the flake. This retouch is sort, sub-parallel and abrupt in nature. Thumb nail scrapers are seen as being a utility domestic scraping tool; they frequently occur in assemblages dating to the beaker period - Late Neolithic and early Bronze Age. Dimensions: 26.9mm…

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Probable Mesolithic to early Bronze Age (8000 - 1000BC) retouched flake: The flint flake is knapped from a brown flint which has a strap of grey patina on the side edge. The ventral surface has a large bulb or percussion and slight conchoidal ripples. The dorsal surface has a negative scar. The distal end has a small curved notch which has been formed by re-touch. The flake measures 18.66mm long, 23.56mm wide, 6.25mm thick and weighs 2.33g. Retouched flakes are difficult to date as they are present throughout prehistory. Thus, a wide date range for this piece is suggested.
