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.

A Late Neolithic flint oblique arrowhead manufactured on a tertiary flake (3300 BC-2200 BC). This arrowhead is sub-triangular in plan, and asymmetrical. On one face, the longer side with the barb there is limited short scaled low angle. The shorter side has been retouched over its whole length, one face has long scaled low angle retouch while the other is short scaled semi-abrupt retouch. This retouch extends along the barb edge. The flint is a semi-translucent dark brown faded to light brown. Measurements: 37.80mm long, 17.24mm wide, 5.06mm thick, 2.84g in weight.

An oblique arrowhead - almost certainly unfinished, made on a thin sub-triangular and assymetrical tertiary flake of semi-opaque mid grey flint with a mid-gloss patina. There is semi-invasive, scaled, low angle retouch on one face of the butt, and an attempt has been made to form a characteristic 'tail' on one side of the butt. There is also unifacial retouch at the 'point' end, although the small bulb of percussion has not been removed, and no point has been formed. One margin retains a sharp cutting edge; the other is slightly tagged and irregular. Date: Late Neolithic - 3300 to …

An almost-complete copper alloy Bronze Age (1275-1140 BC) flat arrowhead.Cast in a two piece mould, this arrowhead is barbed and tanged in form, with the two sides forming an angle of approximately 25-30 degrees. It is 26.85mm long, 19.2mm wide from barb to barb, 2.00mm thick and weighs 2.54g. The tang is incomplete and measures c.4.55mm long, 5.45mm wide and 1.55mm thick. The arrowhead has a very low mid ridge, giving the object a lozengiform cross-section. There is only one bronze arrowhead from a secure Bronze Age context in Britain and that was in the Penard hoard, first report…

A flint leaf shaped arrow head probably late Neolithic to early Bronze Age. This has been made from a very pale brown flint flake, which has a low bulb of percussion and obvious concoidal ripples on the ventral side, while several flakes have been removed from the dorsal side, leaving a low dorsal ridge and ripples in various directions from where the flakes have been removed. There is the hint of a tang at the proximal end, showing evidence of re-working by micro flaking. The edges of the blade have also been reworked around almost the entire perimeter, with micro flaking mostly on th…

An incomplete flint arrowhead. Mid grey flint with a heavy white patina. The arrowhead has been thinned and shaped with regular invasive retouch around the edges on both sides. The tip and trailing end have both been broken off. The breaks are also patinated suggesting they are not recent. Date: Neolithic - 3500 - 2100 BC Dimensions: 20 mm x 20 mm x 4 mm Weight: 1.5 g

A small barbed and tanged flint arrowhead of early Bronze Age date. The arrowhead measures 24.40mm by 20.30mm by 4.60mm and weighs 1.48g. The arrowhead has been made from a flake, which was invasively retouched on both sides by pressure flaking. Its small size, light weight and small length to breath ratio place it as a Sutton type (Butler 2005, pp. 162-3). The light brownish-cream flint has a low-gloss patina
