A chunk or chip of mottled mid grey coloured tertiary debitage of probable Neolithic - Iron Age date. The flake is irregular in plan and section with a number of old regular and modern irregular flake removals. The upper edge seems to be reworked with direct retouch - although this may be a modern artefact of movement in the soil. The flake measures 25.1mm length, 11.8mm width, is 7.4mm thick and weighs 1.6 grams.

Large piece of black coloured flint blade like flake of secondary debitage of probable later Meolithic or Early Neolithic date. The flake has been damaged in the ploughsoil and several new irregular flakes are present. Originally the dorsal face had several flake scars and a large area of white coloured limestone / chalk derived cortex. The ventral face has the remains of the bulb of percussion - although some of it is lost due to the top of the blade being damaged. The base of teh blade has an area of invasive retouch creating a cutting / scraping egde. The colour of the flint sugges…

A complete knapped, ground and polished flint axehead of later Neolithic date (2900-2100 BC). The axe is knapped from a mid grey coloured flint; a substantial mid milky white / pale grey surface patina is present. The grey colour of the flint is only visible through areas of modern damage. The axe head is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and sub-oval (humped) in cross section. In plan the sides of the axe taper from the widest point at the cutting edge to a relatively wide but thin and rounded butt. Both long edges taper evenly and the axe is broadly symmetrical. The sides of the axe h…

A ground and polished stone pendant of uncertain / unknown date c. 3500 BC - 1950 AD). The pendant is formed from a fine grained volcanic tuff (pers comm. Lockett) which is a mid grey - black colour with relatively no inclusions, as such it is well adapted for flaking, grinding and polishing. The pendant is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and section; it tapers win thickness and width toward the upper edge, which is pierced with a relatively circular hole. This hole has been drilled from two sides and the cross section of it is hour-glass shaped. The interior of the hole has marked sc…

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.

The arrowhead is lentoid (sub-rectangular) in plan and lentoid in cross section. Both faces of the arrowhead have been pressure (ripple) flaked with a series of small neat narrow facets. Much of this rippled surface has been flaked with much skill (especially given the poor nature of the flint). Both long edges exhibit areas of secondary flaking or retouch and has been applied to both faces . Beneath the ripple flaking older transverse thinning scars ar…

Flint thumbnail (horseshoe) scraper of later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2300 -1800BC).

The ventral face shows clear evidence of the point and bulb of percussion as well as conchoidal fractures that ripple diagonally across the flake suggesting that this flake was struck transversely from a prepared nodule.

A broken pointed end of a finely worked bifacial tool of translucent brown flint with light and mid grey inclusions. It has been totally invasively worked. The plan is a pointed symmetrical leaf shape, very much like a leaf arrow head but for a somewhat thicker section. Close to the slightly oblique break the sharp margin has been slightly blunted which suggests that the tool was a kind of knife.

Four pieces / flakes of tertiary debitage which have been deliberately burnt and used as 'pot boilers' dating from the later Mesolithic and Neolithic periods (4500-2100 BC). The flakes are not well preserved. All the flakes have irregular 'crazed' surfaces which are slightly translucent. The cause of this is most likely to be direct heat and rapid cooling. The most common evidence for this is flint waste and discarded tools being used as 'pot boilers'. As the term suggests this describes a technique common in prehistory for heating water. The use of this flint as a pot boiler would e…

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 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 …

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 secondary 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 / sc…

Record ID: HESH-B4CA33
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…

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.
