Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint ‘thumbnail’ scraper of probable Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2500 - 1500 BC). The flint flake is broad and squat being oval in plan and sub-rectangular in cross section. It measures 21.2mm length, 24.9mm width, is 7.6mm thick and weighs 4.08 grams. The flint flake is not well preserved and the bulb of percussion on the reverse face cannot be identified. Evidence for retouch or secondary working can be seen on the front end / edge of the flake; these facets are small neat and regular. Other evidence of secondary working cannot be seen. Both faces of the tool have i…

Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete, but damaged, knapped (?), and ground axe head of probable later Neolithic date (2900-2100 BC). The axe is knapped from a mid brownish green black igneous rock, possibly a Gabbro. This rock could be knapped in a similar way to flint to form tools. However, the composition of the rock which forms the axe head is different to that of the majority of stone axe heads from the period. The axe head also has a thin seam of softer material probably a pyroxene inclusion. Pyroxene is common as an inclusion in many igneous rocks but is not often found in stone axe heads. The presence o…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small flint waste flake / debitage probably dating from the Neolithic period (3500 - 2100 BC). The flake is irregular in both plan and profile. It has number of regular facets (caused by flaking) on the upper (dorsal) face of the flake. There is a patch of cortex (the rough outer skin of the flint nodule) present on the dorsal edge. This suggests that this flake comes from the secondary phase of tool production. The cortex is white and is similar to that of flint nodules from chalk areas. The underside (ventral face) of the flake shows a small neat bulb of percussion, which is position…

Leaf shaped flint arrowhead (projectile point) of probable early Neolithic date (3000-2500 BC). The arrowhead is ‘kite-shaped’ in that it is broadly triangular in plan with graduated expanding edges from a pointed tip to a relatively flat – inturned base. In cross section the arrowhead is broadly lentoid. The arrowhead has been formed from a broad relatively thin blade, and the upper (dorsal) face has a series of longitudinal blade scars present suggesting that the blade had been removed from a relatively well worked core. The lower (ventral) face shows clear conchoidal fractures…

Small tertiary flake which has been utilised as a scraper of probable earlier Neolithic date (3500BC - 2500BC). The flint flake is sub-oval in plan and sub-rectangular in profile. The bulb of percussion is missing and is likely to have been trimmed from the artefact during preparation. The area of secondary reworking (retouch) covers all of the edges of the flake. The retouch is uniform in shape being formed from small narrow bladed facets. It seems likely that this flake was a by-product (or waste flake) of tool making, however, there is no evidence of cortex (rough outer skin of the…

The bulb of percussion is complete on the reverse and shows that he flake has been removed with a transverse blow. The flake is likely to have been produced in the secondary phase of working as a small area of cortex (the outer rind like skin of the nodule) is present along one edge. The reason for removing this flake from the original tool is likely to be due to a flaw in the flint which has resulted in an area of hinge fract…

Large irregular oval piece of flint / nodule. There seems to be very little evidence of flaking or retouch present on either of the faces. Any facets present seem to be as a result of plough roll or frost action. This flint is recorded due to the exceptional size of the piece and the presence of other worked flints in the area. It is possible that this piece within the assemblage represents a reserve of flint for tool making; this is especially interesting as flint of this size is rare in the Marches. Measures: 130.2mm length, 77.3mm width, is 57.5mm thick and weighs 740 grams.

A prehistoric stone axe of probable early Neolithic date. The axe has been made from a fine grained igneous rock, dark grey in colour with fine white inclusions. The axe has been manufactured by chipping and grinding. The chipping is predominantly associated with the lateral edges and the butt of the axe. The blade has been formed through grinding of the body of the axe. The axe is fairly crude and not nearly so finely finished as some Neolithic axes. This may perhaps indicate that it was intended to be purely functional and not intended to be used as a status symbol. Damage to the bl…

one piece of secondary debitage probably dating from the Neolithic period (3500-2100 BC). The fragment is poorly knapped and a number of hinge and cleaved fractures are present. There is no sign of secondary falking or detailled reworking. It most likely reporesents rough working prior to knapping. A large piece of white cortex is present suggesting that the flint originates from a limestone / chalk area. The debitage measures 49.7mm length, is 20.0mm wide, 8.4mm thick and weighs 8.04 grams

Heavily abraded tertiary debitage with multiple flaking areas, although many may be uncontrolled and result from movement in the plough soil. The debitage is most likely waste from tool making in the Neolithic period (3500 - 2100 BC). The flint is a mid greyish green colour with mottled brown inclusions. There is no obvious reworking to form a known tool type. The debitage measures 28.8mm length, 17.4mm width and is 8.7mm thick; it weighs 4.69 grams

Two fine waste flakes, tertiary debitage, from the final phase of tool making dated broadly to the late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age periods (3500 - 1800 BC). The flint is a mid cream grey colour. There is no obvious reworking to form a known tool type. The fineness (thinness) of the flakes suggests that these maybe from the final stage of working. One of the flakes maybe burnt as is slightly crystalline in nature The debitage measures 1. 27.9mm length, 20.4mm width and is 2.8mm thick; it weighs 1.59 grams 2. 22.2mm length, 17.8mm width and is 3.3mm thick; it weighs 1.28 grams
