Flint ‘thumbnail’ scraper of probable Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2500 - 1500 BC). The flint flake is broad and squat being oval in plan and sub-rectangular in cross section. It measures 21.2mm length, 24.9mm width, is 7.6mm thick and weighs 4.08 grams. The flint flake is not well preserved and the bulb of percussion on the reverse face cannot be identified. Evidence for retouch or secondary working can be seen on the front end / edge of the flake; these facets are small neat and regular. Other evidence of secondary working cannot be seen. Both faces of the tool have i…

Flint thumbnail (horseshoe) scraper of later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2300 -1800BC). The scraper is formed from a mottled grey brown coloured 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 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. The bulb has been trimmed by flaking and an area of modern damage …

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…

Small flint waste flake / debitage probably dating from the Neolithic period (2900 - 2100 BC). The flake is broadly oval in both plan and D shaped in profile. It has number of regular facets caused by flaking and also plough-damage on the upper (dorsal) face of the flake. The lower (ventral) face has very little evidence of flaking. It does however show evidence of conchoidal fractures suggesting that the bulb of percussion has been removed by later flaking. There is a small area of cortex (the rough outer skin of the flint nodule) present on the dorsal face. This suggests that this fl…

Small tertiary flake which has been utilised as a scraper of probable earlier Neolithic date (3500BC - 2500BC). The flint flake is sub-oval in plan and sub-rectangular in profile. The bulb of percussion is missing and is likely to have been trimmed from the artefact during preparation. The area of secondary reworking (retouch) covers all of the edges of the flake. The retouch is uniform in shape being formed from small narrow bladed facets. It seems likely that this flake was a by-product (or waste flake) of tool making, however, there is no evidence of cortex (rough outer skin of the…

Flint waste flake (debitage) from tool production 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, but a section has been partially removed by subsequent working. 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 …

A scraper formed on a large and irregular waste flake / secondary debitage dating from the Neolithic Period (3500 -2100BC). The flake is large and irregular being formed from relatively good flint, in plan it is sub-triangular whilst in section it is rectangular. Along one edges is an area of coarse external cortex; this would suggest that the flake has been formed from secondary waste / debitage. There is no evidence of a bulb of percussion on the lower (ventral) face; this has probably been removed when the flake was snapped. The dorsal (upper) face shows a series of flake facets or …

The flake measures 18.66mm long, 23.56mm wide, 6.25mm thick and weighs 2.33g. Retouched flakes are difficult to date as they are present throughout prehistory. Thus, a wide date range for this piece is suggested.

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 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…

Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A leaf-shaped arrowhead formed on a mottled grey coloured coarse flint or possibly chert of probable Neolithic date (2900 - 2150 BC). 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…

Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete leaf shaped flint arrowhead of probable earlier Neolithic date (4000 - 2700 BC). The arrowhead is ogival / lentoid (a diamond shaped lozenge) in plan and lentoid in cross section. The arrowhead has been knapped from a light-cream to brown flint which is opaque in places. Both faces of the flint show invasive, scaled, low angled retouch. 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…
