Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probable flint scraper tool manufactured on a secondary sub-oval flake of originally mid-grey flint, now covered in a smooth layer of bluey white re-cortification giving an opaque, low-gloss patina. A small amount of cortex remains on the centre of the dorsal face and many ridges show traces of ferrous iron staining. The dorsal face shows multiple flake scars across the centre and some crude, scaled semi-abrupt along the right side margin. The ventral face shows multiple broad flake removal scars and no apparent bulb of percussion. Date: Late Neolithic to early Bronze Age 3300 BC to …

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A biface leaf arrowhead made from a secondary flake of heavily patinated mottled flint. It is sub-oval with a small amount of cortex at the one end. The original colour of the flint is probably mid to dark grey, but this in now covered in a smooth off-white layer of recortification giving the flint an opaque, low-gloss patina. One face shows fairly crude invasive, sub-parallel, low angle retouch, the other face shows invasive, scalar, low angle retouch to the upper half Date: Neolithic 4000 BC - 2350 BC. Dimensions: 34.1 mm x 18.7 mm x 4.41 mm. Weight: 3.09 g.

County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Broken segment of a larger tool, probably a side and end scraper of Neolithic date, c.4000-2000 BC. It was formed on a large blade of dark grey tanslucent flint. The proximal end and the right edge (seen from the ventral face with proximal end downwards) is entirely missing to a long break. Impact scars on the ventral in the middle of this break may suggest it was deliberate or may be the result of post deposition impact, sone removals from it on the dorsal face may be accidental damage. There is extensive retouch on both faces along the remaining side to give a straigh edge. Semi abru…

A bifacially worked flint flake. Mid grey-mottled flint with a heavy off-white patina and some iron staining. The flake has a small striking platform at the proximal end with a small, well-defined bulb of percussion with a large bulbar scar. There is shallow, broad-flaked retouch around the edges on both the ventral and dorsal faces. This is possible a crude knife or a rough-out for an arrowhead.

Object type: POLISHED AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete polished stone axehead, probably of Langdale Tuff. The handaxe has an assymetrical break at the butt end. The surface of the axe is granular but smooth with a distinct grey-green hue. The object is sub-rectangular and tapers inward toward the butt and has a pointed oval section. The blade end tapers out to the side and in along the blade edge. The cutting edge is assymetical and has a large flake missing, probably post depositional damage as the stone revealed is darker. One face has a large flake missing at the distal end. The butt end is missing due to a crude break. Da…

Flake 1: A secondary flint flake. It is sub-oval in shape. The flint is opaque and now completely covered in a layer of smooth blue-white re-cortification giving a mid-gloss patina, areas of modern damage reveal the light beige natural colour of the flint. An area of reddish brown ferrous staining is visible in the centre of the dorsal face. Minimal areas of cortex remain on some margins. The dorsal face shows broad flake removal scars. The ventral face shows a fairly prominent bulb of percussion with large bulbar scar and rippling indicating probable use of a hard hammer. Date: Late N…

A secondary retouched flint flake. It is sub-triangular in shape. The flint is semi-translucent, dark mottled brown with a mid-gloss patina, some areas show a very thin, blue-white speckled re-cortification. Thick chalky cortex remains on three small areas of the dorsal face.
