82 pieces / flakes of tertiary flint debitage of Neolithic date. All of the flakes within the group have been burnt in a fire - possibly suggesting this waste has been utilised as pot boilers. All have a white coloured patina which is crazed through heat cracking. None of edges have been reworked. They have a bulk weight of 190 grams The largest flake measures: 27.6mm length, 24.2mm width is 15.1mm thick and weighs 8.99 grams The Smallest flake measures: 10.6mm length, 11.4mm width is 2.4 thick and weighs 0.23 grams

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…

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…

There is no evidence of any reworking . The dorsal face has several flake removal scars in multiple directions.The flint is a mid white colour and the flake has been burnt in a fire. It has a crazed surface through heat damage; this form of burnt flint is often called a 'pot-boiler'. The debitage measures 36.47mm in length, 38.88mm width, is 12.04mm thick and weighs 21.28 grams.

A complete pecked, ground, and polished stone axe / axehead of probable Neolithic date (3500-2100 BC). The axe is worked from a mid greenish grey coloured igneous rock, with large (between 0.5 and 3.5mm) black, grey, and white coloured angular inclusions. There are also a series of prominent black coloured veins that meander across the polished surface of the axe. The source of the stone is unknown - but it most resembles an Olavante dolerite. This rock could be knapped and worked in a similar way to flint to form tools. The axe is irregular in plan and broadly oval in cross secti…

Four irregularly shaped pieces of tertiary debitage / waste flakes dating from the Neolithic period. All the waste flakes are relatively thin in section - showing evidence of multi-directional working and are probably from the finishing process. The upper / dorsal face on several of the flakes have numerous flake scar removals. The ventral faces are unworked. One waste flake has a small area of neat and regular retouch around one corner. The flint is a mottled mid grey colour. The four flakes have a combined weight of 3.49 grams.

Although the long edges look reworked to form a scraper - this is more likely a direct result of movement in the ploughsoil.

Record ID: HESH-BA2FE5
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small piece of tertiary debitage dating from the Neolithic period. The artefact is waste flake and not a tool instead it is best described as a by-product of knapping. The two face show evidence of working in two opposing directions - a diagnostic feature of Neolithic flint working. In plan the flake is oval an section lentoid. The flint is relatively coarse mottled cream / light grey colour with small areas of translucent milky grey white coloured patina. The flake measures 13.3mm in length, 14.3mm width, is 4.0mm thick and weighs 0.67 grams.

Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A worn and abraded knapped, ground and polished axe / axehead of probable later Neolithic date (2900-2100 BC). The axe is knapped from a dark grey / black fine grained igneous rock most probably volcanic tuff. This rock type is formed from compressed volcanic ash and has a fine grained composition. The weight of this suggests a low level of iron / heavy metals within the matrix. Tuff is found in Britain and Ireland in a band that runs down the Irish Sea from the Lake District (the Langdale's source Group VI), County Antrim (Ireland), through North Wales (Graig Lwyd Group VII), and int…

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 from a mottled brown coloured piece of flint most probably selected from the waste / debitage from the tertiary phase of tool making. The ventral face shows some conchoidal ripples but striking platform etc. has been removed by snapping. 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 / scra…

Object type: CHISEL
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A tranchet chisel struck on a tertiary flake of mid brownish grey coloured flint. The artefact is very regular and well made it is likely to be of prehistoric date: Neolithic - Bronze Age (3500-1800 BC). A direct parallel for such a specialist tool has not been found. The chisel is a triangular (wedge) shape in plan and rectangular in cross section. On the ventral face conchoidal ripples can be seen - from this the direction of the initial rough out blow can be identified; this is at right angles to the work on the dorsal face. The two long edges are near vertical and cleaved , on one …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A tertiary debitage / waste flake from the third / final phase of tool making Neolithic date (3500-2100 BC). The flake is struck on poor quality flint which varies in coarseness and colour, being glacial or riverine derived. The dorsal face of the flake shows multiple removals of flakes in multiple directions. There is no retouch. The flake measures 20.3mm length, 16.7mm wide, 5.2mm thick and weighs 1.44 grams

Record ID: HESH-150CC4
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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.
