Leaf shaped flint arrowhead of probable Middle Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date (2900 - 2150 BC). The arrowhead has been knapped from a light-mid brown translucent flint and is 42.8mm long, 18.1mm wide, and is 3.5mm thick. It weighs 2.72 grams. Both faces have been pressure (ripple) flaked with small neat narrow facets. The upper two thirds of both edges exhibit areas of secondary flaking or retouch. There are three areas of damage; the first is to the point of the arrowhead, the second is to one of the sides, and the third is to the base. None of these areas se…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small fragment of debitage either a chunk or chip of flint probably dating from the Neolithic or Bronze Age (3500 - 1500 BC). The chip is sub-rectangular in plan and lentoid in cross section. It measures 12.8mm length, 13.5mm width and is 4.7mm thick. It weighs 0.91 grams. Approximately 40% of the chip is covered in cortex (the outer rind or skin of a nodule) suggesting that this flake was produced early in the tool making process, probably after the artefact was 'roughed out'. The lower edge of the chunk has a small area of secondary working. This is in the form of retouch to produce …

Small flint flake of probable Neolithic date (3500 - 2100 BC). The flake is irregular in plan and sub-triangular in cross section. The bulb of percussion on the reverse of the flake is complete and there is evidence of a number of hinge fractures on the opposite (front) surface. It is likely that this flake was a by-product (or waste flake / debitage) of tool making as there is a small amount of cortex (rough outer skin of the flint nodule) on the artefact. This area cortex covers less than 15% of the total surface area suggesting that this flake was produced during the second phase of…

Fragment from the butt end of a knapped, ground and polished axe head of probable later Neolithic date (2900-2100 BC). The axe is knapped from a mid grey volcanic tuff. This rock type is formed from compressed volcanic ash that is found in Britain in a band that runs from the Lake District (the Langdale's source Group VI), through North Wales (Graig Lwyd Group VII), and into Cornwall and Devon (Groups XVI and IV respectively). Volcanic tuff is similar to flint in that it can be flaked, ground and polished. This fragment is irregular in plan and sub-oval in cross section. It measures…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC

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…

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…

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 a very large number of regular facets (caused by flaking) on the upper face of the flake. These flake scars are small neat and very regular - being similar to the ripple flaking present on arrowheads and other artefacts of the later part of this period. There are no areas of cortex (the rough outer skin of the flint nodule) present anywhere on the piece of debitage. This suggests that this flake comes from the final or tertiary phase of…

Reworked flint flake / debitage probably dating from the Neolithic period (3500 – 2100 BC). The flake is irregular in both plan (broadly T shaped) and profile. 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…

Leaf shaped flint arrowhead (projectile point) of probable early Neolithic date (3000-2500 BC).

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…

A flint flake with no evidence of ‘re-touch’ along any edge. There is a clear bulb of percussion with corresponding ripples down the length of the piece on the ventral side.

It is a mottled grey colour.

Flint thumbnail (side and end) scraper of later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2300 -1800BC). The scraper is formed from a grey colour piece of flint with a relatively uniform matrix.

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…

A complete Late Neolithic flake rewoked as a side scraper. The flake has an irregular, sub-oval, shape. Its cross-section is triangular, with the apex being the prominent dorsal ridge. The ventral face has two concentric ripples. The dorsal face has a prominent, central ridge running its full length. On the left hand side of the dorsal face there is a continuous length of retouch to provide a sharp edge. There is a section of chalk cortex indicating this is a flint imported into the area. The flint is a non-opaque, dark grey colour. It is 19…

Object type: THUMB NAIL SCRAPER
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint thumbnail scraper of later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2300 -1800BC). The scraper is formed on a tertiary piece of debitage / waste flake which is a mottled grey black colour. The ventral face shows some conchoidal ripples and the base of the bulb of percussion. The dorsal face has multiple and layered series of flake facets. These are most dense around the edge where a series of neat regular well applied secondary retouch can be seen. This has been well applied and forms a slightly serrated cutting / scraping edge. Little or no retouch is applied to the edges on the ven…

A grey / black coloured secondary debitage flake that has been reworked in one area to form a knife or scraper. The flake is broadly oval with a deliberately snapped edge. The dorsal face shows a number of multi-direction flake removals presuambly created prior to removal from the core. The ventral face has a clear bulb of percussion - this has been thinned and then the outer edge has been reworked with neat invasive retouch creating a small cutting / scraping edge. The cortex is white chalk limestone derived suggesting that this flint is of a better quality to much sourced locally. T…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Mid mottled grey coloured very thin / fine flake of tertiary debitage of probable Neolithic or possible early Bronze Age date. The flake has a series of scar flake removals on the dorsal face and choncoidal ripples on the ventral. The edges are not retouched. The thinness of the flake suggests this was a thinning flake from a core tool. The flake measures 20.2mm length, 25.2mm width is 2.8mm thick and weighs 1.4 grams.
