Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Fragment from the butt end of a knapped, ground and polished axe head of probable later Neolithic date (2900-2100 BC). The axe is knapped from a mid grey volcanic tuff. This rock type is formed from compressed volcanic ash that is found in Britain in a band that runs from the Lake District (the Langdale's source Group VI), through North Wales (Graig Lwyd Group VII), and into Cornwall and Devon (Groups XVI and IV respectively). Volcanic tuff is similar to flint in that it can be flaked, ground and polished. This fragment is irregular in plan and sub-oval in cross section. It measures…

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…

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…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete, but damaged, knapped (?), and ground axe head of probable later Neolithic date (2900-2100 BC). The axe is knapped from a mid brownish green black igneous rock, possibly a Gabbro. This rock could be knapped in a similar way to flint to form tools. However, the composition of the rock which forms the axe head is different to that of the majority of stone axe heads from the period. The axe head also has a thin seam of softer material probably a pyroxene inclusion. Pyroxene is common as an inclusion in many igneous rocks but is not often found in stone axe heads. The presence o…

Small flint waste flake / debitage probably dating from the Neolithic period (3500 - 2100 BC). The flake is irregular in both plan and profile. It has number of regular facets (caused by flaking) on the upper (dorsal) face of the flake. There is a patch of cortex (the rough outer skin of the flint nodule) present on the dorsal edge. This suggests that this flake comes from the secondary phase of tool production. The cortex is white and is similar to that of flint nodules from chalk areas. The underside (ventral face) of the flake shows a small neat bulb of percussion, which is position…

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…

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.

Relatively large flint scraper (side and end) of probable later Neolithic date (2900 - 2100 BC). The scraper is formed from a large chunky flint secondary waste flake, which was probably a bi-product of other tool production. It is broadly oval in plan and cross section. The scraper measures 28.8mm length, 26.9mm width, is 9.6mm thick and weighs 6.94 grams. The scraper has significant retouch applied to the upper (dorsal) face. This secondary working is primarily limited to the cutting edges positioned along one side and the base. Here a series of regular overlapping neat smal…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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 …

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…

County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Heavily abraded tertiary debitage with multiple flaking areas. The debitage is most likely waste from tool making in the Neolithic period (3500 - 2100 BC). The flint is a mid greyish white colour with mottled brown inclusions. There is no obvious reworking to form a known tool type. The debitage measures 34.2mm length, 26.3mm width and is 11.5mm thick; it weighs 14.31 grams

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint scraper of later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2900-1800 BC). The scraper is broadly oval in plan and irregular in cross section being formed from a tertiary debitage flake. The upper / dorsal face of the scraper exhibits a series of irregular flake scars suggesting that this piece has been removed from a larger flake and been subsequently reused. The lower / ventral face is concave with a series of conchoidal ripples; the bulb of percussion and striking platform are complete. The side and front edges of the dorsal face have all be retouched with indirect percuss…
