Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small blade like flake of tertiary debitage of probable earlier Neolithic date (3500 - 2500 BC). The flake is an irregular rectangular shape and is formed on a mottled grey coloured flint. The upper edge is snapped and a number of vertical flake scars are present on the dorsal face. The ventral face is unworked. The long edges are feathered with abrupt retouch - although this is most likely to be as a result of movement in the ploughsoil - ratherthann deliberate reworking. The flake measures 26.4mm long, 18.4mm wide, 4.1mm thick, and weighs 1.3 grams.

Flint ‘thumbnail’ scraper of probable Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2500 - 1500 BC). The flint flake is relatively broad and squat being oval in plan and sub-rectangular (D shaped) in cross section. It has been formed from a secondary piece of debitage (or waste flint). The flake measures 26.3mm length, 23.5mm width, is 5mm thick and weighs 3.41 grams. The bulb of percussion has been removed from the reverse face but clear conchoidal fractures can be seen expanding from a point. It seems likely that this flake was removed originally as there is a large flaw and hinge…

A complete but damaged knapped, ground and polished axe-head of probable later Neolithic date (2900-2100 BC). The axe is knapped from a mid grey buff volcanic tuff. This rock type is formed from compressed volcanic ash and has a fine grained composition with infrequent crystalline inclusions. 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 into Cornwall and Devon (Groups XVI and IV respectively). Volcanic tuff is similar to flint…

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. It is created from a tertiary flake (due to the size of the scraper this may originally be debitage). The ventral face shows clear evidence of the bulb of percussion and conchoidal fractures. The bulb has been trimmed by flaking and an area of modern damage can be seen on one of the worked edges. The dorsal face has a series of flake facets, where flakes have been removed to thin the thickness of the…

A late Neolithic arrowhead probably of oblique or hollow-based type. There is bifacial invasive retouch down the left lateral edge (when held with dorsal side facing). The base appears to have been slightly hollowed with retouch to form very slight barbs. Some cortex remains on the dorsal surface. The flint is pale to dark grey with the cortex a sandy colour. The arrowhead measures 28.14 mm in length and tapers in width from 20.5 mm at the base to 2.4 mm at the point. It is lozengiform in section and is 5.1 mm thick. It resembles an example of an oblique arrowhead illustrated i…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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 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.

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

Clear traces of flake scaring can be seen on the dorsal face and there is no evidence of retouch / reuse on the edges. The dorsal face also has approximately 60% cortex present The flake measures 25.9mm length, is 11.5mm wide, and is 5.2mm thick; it weighs 1.63 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. One of the flakes maybe burnt as is slightly crystalline in nature The debitage measures 1. 27.9mm length, 20.4mm width and is 2.8mm thick; it weighs 1.59 grams 2. 22.2mm length, 17.8mm width and is 3.3mm thick; it weighs 1.28 grams

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.

PAS-RC07 Grid D19 An irregular chunk or chip of tertiary debitage / waste flake of probable Neolithic date ( 4000 - 2500BC). In plan and profile the flake is irregular. 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.
