24 complete and snapped flint blades or bladlets of later Mesolithic date (6000BC - 3500BC). These blades are struck from a core and have the generic crested appearance on their dorsal faces. Many of the blades have been deliberately snapped through the removal of side notches and deliberate breaking. The underside / ventral face of each shows conchoidal rippling and some have evidence of bulb of percussion and / or striking platforms. All the blades have some form of retouch along their long edges - this is best described as being disorganised short, sub-parallel, semi-abrupt which cr…

Mesolithic to Neolithic (c. 7000 to 2350BC) debitage: A blade knapped from flint. The flake is triangular in section. The dorsal surface has two vertical scars and the ventral surface has traces of conchoidal ripples and a small bulb of percussion. The surface has a white patina which has a dark grey flint. It measures 25.74mm long, 9.83mm wide, 3.79mm thick and weighing 0.95g. The blade probably dates to the Mesolithic to Neolithic periods, c. 7000 to 2350BC.

Mesolithic to Neolithic (c. 7000 to 2350BC) debitage: A blade knapped from flint. The blade is trapezoidal in section. The dorsal surface has three vertical scars and the ventral surface has traces of conchoidal ripples. The proximal end is missing, but the patina which covers the surface also covers the break. One on lateral edge there is a small portion of damage rather than re-touch revealing a dark grey flint. It measures 31.88mm long, 14.11mm wide, 3.39mm thick and weighing 2.17g. The blade probably dates to the Mesolithic to Neolithic periods, c. 7000 to 2350BC.

An incomplete snapped flint blade of probable later Mesolithic or early Neolithic date (6000BC - 3500BC). The flint tool, probably best described as a knife, is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and sub-triangular (crested) in cross section. The blade has been snapped un the upper and lower edges. The bulb of percussion and striking / knapping platform are lost on the lower (ventral) face. The upper (dorsal) face of the blade has a number of clear facets and ridges. Both the long edges have been retouched on the dorsal faces; the retouch is best described as being disorganised short, sub…

A small fragment from the upper part of a snapped long sub-rectangular bladelet of later Mesolithic or early Neolithic date (4500 - 2800 BC). The bladelet is heavily rolled and abraded; it has vertical removals on the dorsal face and conchoidal ripples on the ventral. There is no retouch present. The proximal end has the remains of a prepared knapping platform. The flint is very coarse being a light brown grey colour with slightly crystalline (cherty) structure. The bladelet measures 20.0mm length, 23.4mm width, is 8.8mm thick and weighs 4.3 grams.

PAS-RC07 Grid A2 A small snapped blade of later Mesolithic date (5500 - 3500 BC). The blade is broadly rectangular in plan and rhomboid in section. The upper dorsal face has a series of linear flake scars present created by the removal of other blades from the core. The reverse (ventral) shows conchoidal fractures, bulb of percussion and striking platform. The blade was originally much longer but the lower part is now lost / detached possibly via flaking in the Mesolithic. The two long edges both exhibit retouch creating serrated edges. The flint is a mid grey brown colour with …

Flint blade like flake of later Mesolithic date (4000 -3000 BC). The flake is broadly rectangular in plan and has a crested (triangular shaped) cross section. The striking platform and bulb of percussion are both present. The external edges have been retouched and an irregular removal is present on one edge- the area around this is retouched possibly suggesting the removal shape had a specific use. The blade is a mid brown grey colour. It measures: 19.4mm in length, 14.4mm width, is 3.9mm thick and weighs 0.72 grams.

An unusual notched snapped blade formed of mid grey mottled flint of later Mesolithic date. The blade has been deliberately snapped and the base of the slender flake survives. One edge (left hand) has a burin removal which has created a slight step. The opposite edge has a deliberately formed U shaped notch, which is reworked on both faces with neat and well formed scaled and overlapping secondary flaking. This reworking is most apparent on the dorsal face, although on the ventral the tip is thinned by parallel flaking. One long edge has a small section of cortex suggesting this was f…

A snapped flint blade of later Mesolithic date (4000 -3000 BC). The blade is rectangular in plan and has a crested cross section. Both the upper and lower edges of the blade are snapped - both have a grey coloured developed surface patina. The snapping has also removed the striking platform and bulb of percussion. The long edges have not been reworked although movement in the plough soil suggests abrupt retouch is present. The flint is relatively coarse and a mid grey mottled colour with small areas of translucent milky grey white coloured patina. The blade measures 31mm in length,…

A snapped flint blade of later Mesolithic date (4000 -3000 BC). The blade is rectangular in plan and has a crested cross section. The striking platform and bulb of percussion are lost. The dorsal face has a large area of cortex present suggesting that this should be claseed as secondary debitage . One of thelong edges has been reworked with neat and even scaled retouch which creates a good cutting and scraping edge. The lower section of the opposite long edge shows signs of abrupt direct abrupt retouch. The flint is relatively coarse and a blackish grey colour with few areas of mottli…

A complete Mesolithic blade with a little semi-abrupt retouch near the tip to form a possible awl point. The blade shape is irregular and tapers towards both ends. Its cross-section is a shallow triangle, with the apex being the prominent dorsal ridge. The ventral face has very faint percussive ripples, these indicate it was struck from the end which now forms the awl tip. There is no distinguishable bulb of percussion. To the left of the awl tip is a short section of semi-abrupt retouch from the ventral side to form a point. The dorsal face has a prominent, central ridge runnin…

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Mesolithic or early Neolithic flint blade. In plan the blade is an elongated sub-triangle and trapezoidal in section. The dorsal surface has three main linear vertical scars, and the ventral surface has ripples. The proximal end is broken, but this is not a recent break as the patina covers the edge. It measures 30.94mm long, 12.55mm wide, 5.76mm thick and weighs 1.6 grams. The flint is mottled pale brown/cream in colour due to its patination. The blade dates to the Mesolithic to early Neolithic periods (-8300 - -2900).
