A fragment of knapped flint knife - or possibly a reworked projectile point of later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2900 BC - 1800 BC). The flint is sub-triangular in plan and an irregular trapezoid in cross section. The flint has been worked from a larger flake and the ventral face shows evidence of conchoidal ripples. The two long edges of the dorsal face show evidence of significant retouch which has been applied through pressure flaking; these have created a neat serrated edge. The lower short edge has several areas of vertical knapping on the butt suggesting it has been del…

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

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.

An early to middle Neolithic ovate 'laurel leaf like' knife, dating from the period c. 3500-2900 BC. The tool is formed on a mid-orange yellow mottled coloured pieced coarse 'local flint'. In plan the flake is a pointed oval or cordate shape and in cross section it is broadly sub-oval (D-shaped). The tool is formed on a broad blade like flake; the ventral face shows conchoidal ridges and the blade has been struck from a prepared core. The upper / dorsal face shows two parallel ridges. The long edges have been reworked bifacially using both hard and soft hammer being neat and well orga…
