Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An almost complete unpolished flaked axe of Neolithic date and of Scandinavian type. The object has a convex cutting edge and straight parallel sides which taper to a squared off butt end. The cutting edge measures 64mm in width and is 3mm thick. A large oval flake has been removed from one face just above the cutting edge in recent times and is likely due to plough damage. Each face of the object has been worked with flaking. The flaked sides taper evenly towards the butt end which is rectangular in cross-section. The butt end measures 25.5mm in width and is 22mm thick. The butt e…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
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…

A flint scraper of probable later Neolithic date (2700 -2350BC). It is broadly sub oval in plan and irregular in cross section. The scraper is formed from a blade like flake of tertiary debitage, on course grained flint. The scraper is mid to dark grey coloured. There is a small area of cortex present on the upper surface edge. The retouch is short, sub-parallel and abrupt. This type of scraper is the most common type of tool found within flint assemblages of later Neolithic or early Bronze Age (Beaker) date, being a multi-function cutting and scraping tool which were infrequently haf…

The dorsal face has scaled diagonal flaking across the entire surface. The ventral face also has scaled flaking which has a greater concentration around the proximal end. The lower edge on one side was possible broken in antiquity and then r…

A square shaped wedge of reworked flint - most probably a scraper of probable Neolithic date. The scraper is formed on a snapped blade like flake which is a faceted D shape in cross section. The dorsal face has a series of neat angular retouch around three sides; this retouch is best described as short, parallel semi-abrupt. The edges of the ventral face have also been retouched with less neat and more irregular flake facets. The flint is a dark black colour with no cortex present. In shape the flint is very similar to gun-flints of the 17th and 18th centuries; however the application…

Prehistoric flint knife, probably of Neolithic date The knife is of sub-triangular form and is incomplete, missing part of the retouched edge (with a length of 47.5mm, a width of 36.4mm, a thickness of 10.7mm and a weight of 16.8g). The retouch was confined to one edge and only survives on the distal end, abutting the cortex. The opposite edge may have been deliberately backed. Cortex is present on the distal side and there is a recessed flaw on the ventral surface. The flint has light patination.

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.

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…

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.

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…

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. The implement is 30.9mm in length, 33.35mm wide, 8.3mm thick and weighs 8.4 grams
