Incomplete segment of a snapped flint blade of probable late Mesolithic date (6500BC - 3500BC). The flint tool is sub-rectangular in plan and sub-triangular in cross section. It measures 31.4mm length, 18.1mm width, is 9.5mm (max) thick and weighs 5.25 grams. The flint probably consists of the central or lower part of the blade; however, modern damage has obscured the detail which would enable positive confirmation of this. The bulb of percussion is not present however the initial ripples caused by the striking of the blade are clear on the reverse of the flake. The upper end of the bl…

Lower segment of a snapped flint blade of probable late Mesolithic date (6500BC - 3500BC). The flint tool is sub-rectangular in plan and sub-triangular in cross section. The artefact consists of the lower part of a blade. This is known because the bulb of percussion is not present however the initial ripples caused by the striking of the blade are clear on the reverse of the flake. The upper end of the blade has been snapped and has caused a jagged break or hinge fracture. The lower end of the blade has received some trimming and retouch. The two long vertical sides of the blade have b…

Lower segment of snapped flint blade of probable late Mesolithic date (6500BC - 3500BC). The flint tool is sub-rectangular in plan and broadly sub-triangular in cross section. The bulb of percussion is missing. The two long sides and the lower end of the blade have a limited amount of retouch / rework on them. The majority of this has been applied to the under side of the blade. The retouch is most extensive on the right hand edge, where there is a higher density of flake scars. There is no evidence of cortex (rough outer skin of the flint) on any part of the blade; this suggests that …

Flint blade of probable late Mesolithic date (6500BC - 3500BC). The flint tool is sub-rectangular in plan and broadly sub-triangular in cross section. The bulb of percussion is present on the reverse of the blade and has been trimmed by retouch. The two long sides and the lower end of the blade also exhibit areas of secondary working. The majority of this has been applied to the upper edges of the flake where the scars are relatively small, neat and regular. It is possible that this blade was originally meant to be used as a perforator or borer, however, slight damage to the lower edge…

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…

Nine (9) blades of varying lengths and thicknesses of later Mesolithic date (4000 -3000 BC). The sections of the blades vary, some are triangular (crested) whilst others are flatter lentoid shaped. All have multiple linear facets on the dorsal faces and conchoidal fractures on the ventral. Some are snapped, others still possess their bulbs of percussion / striking platforms. The majority of the flakes are plough rolled and have thick white surface patinas. Some of the long edges have had limited retouch applied using direct percussion. A few flakes would be better described as chert -…

Knapped flint blade of late Mesolithic date (6500 - 4000 BC). The lower part of the blade is deliberately snapped, whilst the upper has a considerable amount of cortex. The blade is broadly sub-rectangular in plan (having curved / convex and concave long edges) and oval in cross section. The presence of cortex suggests that the core is relatively new as this is usually removed in the first phases of working. The striking platform for the blade is lost suggesting that this is from the bottom section of a much longer blade. The upper / dorsal face exhibits several long facets / blade sh…

A Mesolithic flint bladelet. It appears to have been broken in prehistory, as there is a break with a patina which matches that visible on the exterior of the rest of the flint. It is possible that this break was deliberate as part of the manufacture of a microlith using the microburin technique, though this is far from certain. The remains of the bladelet measure 26.01 mm long, 10.97 mm wide, 5.43 mm thick and weighs 1.3 grams. It is triangular in section and grey in colour with cream patches.

A Mesolithic notched blade. There are two notches and further retouch along the left lateral edge (when held with dorsal side facing). The opposite lateral edge has also been subject to some retouch. It is uncertain whether both sides would have had a function, or whether one would have been hafted. However, given that both sides have been subject to retouch they may have fulfilled different functions. The flint is pale grey in colour. It measures 27.33 mm long, 11.07 mm wide, 3.89 mm thick and weighs 1.1 grams. It is sub-triangular in section.

A Mesolithic flint blade. The blade is 43.9 mm in length, 18.3 mm wide and 3.6 mm thick. Negative scars on the dorsal face at the proximal end show where the core was abraded to produce a suitable striking platform. A further likely striking platform at the distal end of the blade suggests that it was struck from a two-platform core. Intriguingly, there is evidence for burning at both distal and proximal ends. Given that the blade shows no evidence for having been burnt elsewhere this may represent evidence for heat treating of the core to aid knapping. The blade appears to have …

A Mesolithic flint bladelet. The bladelet is incomplete, missing the proximal end where the bulb of percussion and striking platform would be. This may be a result of damage, or perhaps more likely, that it represents a stage in the working of a microlith. The lack of obvious retouch along either lateral edge or at the distal end of the bladelet perhaps suggests that this is not a microlith itself, but may represent an unutilised part of the bladelet. The flint is a pale grey to white in colour. The bladelet measures 19.05 mm in length, 8 mm wide, 2.8 mm thick and weighs 0.3 grams. …

A broken Mesolithic flint bladelet. The bladelet was possibly broken during creation of a microlith, and may represent a waste artefact of the process. There is possible retouch along the right lateral edge (when held with dorsal side facing), although it is also possible that this is a result of wear. Less certain retouch is also visible on the opposite lateral edge. The flint is cream in colour. The remains of the bladelet measure 14 mm in length, 7.65 mm wide, 2.6 mm thick and weighs 0.2 grams.

A Mesolithic flint broken bladelet. The artefact is mostly not retouched, suggesting that it is not itself a microlith, however retouch to the right lateral edge at the break may suggest it was broken during mircolith manufacture using the microburin technique. It is triangular in section with a ridge running down the dorsal face. It measures 14.49 mm in length, 6.73 mm wide, 2.3 mm thick and weighs 0.2 grams. The flint is a pale cream in colour.
