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.

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.

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. …

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…

A flint blade of later Mesolithic date (4000 -3000 BC). The is rectangular in plan and has a crested cross section. The striking platform and bulb of percussion are present on the ventral face. The opposite end has been reworked to form a scraper and the long edge has also received some reworking but this is not as regular as that seen at the tip. The retouch on the tip is applied in neat regular rows on the dorsal face, whereas the retouch on the side is all applied from the ventral face. It is likely that this is a scraping and cutting tool. Two parallel vertical removals have been…

A pyramidal shaped core dating to the Mesolithic period (6500 - 3500 BC). The core is triangular in profile and irregular in plan. A number of distinct knapping platforms are present and there are several areas of multiple blade removals in a number of different directions .The flint is a light grey colour with a milky white patina and substantial area of cortex.

Nine (9) blades of varying lengths and thicknesses of later Mesolithic date (4000 -3000 BC). The sections of the blades vary, some are triangular (crested) whilst others are flatter lentoid shaped. All have multiple linear facets on the dorsal faces and conchoidal fractures on the ventral. Some are snapped, others still possess their bulbs of percussion / striking platforms. The majority of the flakes are plough rolled and have thick white surface patinas. Some of the long edges have had limited retouch applied using direct percussion. A few flakes would be better described as chert -…

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete 'snapped' flint blade of probable Mesolithic date (6500BC - 3500BC). The flint blade is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and triangular (crested) in cross section. The bulb of percussion and lower half of the blade have both been removed through snapping. The dorsal face shows three ridges (crests) where previous blades have been removed fro a core. The long edges have been rolled in the soil but there is no evidence of retouch. The flint is a mid grey mottled colour with large areas of mid cream grey coloured mottling. The flint is also very course suggesting a chert like s…

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of secondary debitage possibly from Mesolithic or earlier Neolithic tool making, all the flaking is in one direction. In plan the fragment is rectangular - in cross section triangular. Several long flake scars are present on the dorsal face. These cut through the small area of cortex present. The ventral face shows evidence of conchoidal ripples but the bulb of percussion is lost. Small areas of potential retouch are present along one edge; however this is direct retouch produced with a hard hammer, and could alternatively be created by abrasion / movement in the soil. Th…
