County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
82 pieces / flakes of tertiary flint debitage of Neolithic date. All of the flakes within the group have been burnt in a fire - possibly suggesting this waste has been utilised as pot boilers. All have a white coloured patina which is crazed through heat cracking. None of edges have been reworked. They have a bulk weight of 190 grams The largest flake measures: 27.6mm length, 24.2mm width is 15.1mm thick and weighs 8.99 grams The Smallest flake measures: 10.6mm length, 11.4mm width is 2.4 thick and weighs 0.23 grams

Fifty Eight (58) fragments of secondary flint waste / debitage of Neolithic date (3500-2100 BC). All of the flakes are from secondary phase of working / flaking and are a direct result of preparation of flint tools. Most show clear signs of direct hard hammer knapping and the majority have been removed with minimal loss of flint from the nodule / core. The cortex is all mid grey in colour and the majority is chalk derived. The majority of the flint is a light grey through to black colour, although some pieces have milky white surface patina. This collection is from an assemblage of la…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A near complete axe head formed of a coarse grained igneous rock dating from the later Neolithic date (3000-2000 BC). The axe has been knapped and pecked into shape although the surface is heavily weathered. The rock from which it is made is a mid-brown fine grained igneous - possibly a diorite with significant inclusions of elongated rectangular black crystals - possibly biotite of hornblende. There is considerable mid orange staining across the body of the axe and this maybe as a result of the burial environment - possibly indicating deposition within soils that are iron rich or have…

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…

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 …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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 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 …

A complete leaf shaped flint arrowhead of probable earlier Neolithic date (4000 - 2700 BC) formed on a tertiary flake. The arrowhead is ogival / lentoid (a diamond shaped lozenge) in plan and lentoid in cross section. The arrowhead has been knapped from a mottled light-grey to brown flint which is opaque in places. Both faces of the flint show invasive, scaled, low angled retouch, with one face showing a slight scar, probably caused by a plough or similar machinery.

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…

A secondary flake of debitage that has been burnt; there is no retouch or utilisation present. It is likely to be of post Mesolithic date (3500 - 500 BC). The dorsal face is covered by 100% white grey coloured cortex. The knapped surface of the artefact is a mid grey colour and is slightly crazed through heat damage. It measures 22.6mm length, 29.5mm width, is 8.2mm thick and weighs 6.7 grams.

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…
