Record ID: PUBLIC-0551E4
Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

Record ID: CPAT-4C56E1
Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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. The dorsal surface is covered by negative scars, hackles and ridges. While not officially a blade as its length is not quite twice its width, it could have been used as a blade. It is a mottled grey colour.

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. It is likely that this flake was a by-product (or waste flake / debitage) of tool making; if this is the case then it must have been once all the cortex had been removed (tertiary / third phase of tool making) as there is no evidence for cortex on the flint. This waste flake has then been re-used or utilised to form a scraper like tool. The evidence for this is the secondary flaking or retouch along …

Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…
