A bipolar core with two striking platforms at opposing ends, made on a crudely flaked flint nodule fragment. The flint is opaque, the original colour is light grey, however most of the object is now covered in a smooth, thin layer of re-patination creating a mid-gloss patina with areas of heavy reddish brown ferrous staining, mainly on the flake scar ridges. Two small areas of nodular cortex remain. Broad flake and more linear blade flakes scars are visible around all sides, many showing hinge fractures, making the core difficult to work, this was possibly the reason why it was discard…

A flint keeled core,made on a broken polished axe. An elongate oval shaped core with platforms at acute angles to one another creating a keeled edge and an upper and lower face. Both faces show broad flake removal scars, many terminate in hinge fractures indicating probable use of a hard hammer. The flint is opaque and mottled dark to light grey with plentiful areas of reddish brown ferrous staining, mainly to flake scar ridges. Ridges and edges are smoothed. There are remnants of polished surface on one face. There is also an area of use waer (battering) along the edge at one end. Dat…

A core rejuvenation flake that has been re-utilized as scraper tool, made from a tertiary sub-triangular flake of Portland chert. The flake would have been removed from the original platform of the core in order to create a new platform. The chert is opaque and characteristically mid to dark grey in colour with a mid-gloss patina and is mostly covered in a thin speckled off-white re-cortification, except for areas of retouch carried out at a later date. The object has a triangular cross section with the dorsal face showing large broad flake removal scars with strong ripples. The dista…

A bifacially worked keeled core with platforms at acute angles to one another, or a worked flake made on a thick flake of Portland chert. The chert is opaque and mid-light grey in colour with a low-gloss patina and is covered in a thin off-white re-cortification, the object has a lenticular shape. Both faces show flaking across the central area with shorter, scaled semi-abrupt retouch around margins. Particularly note the 'thick' edge, which looks like it has been prepared as a platform for another flake removal. Date: Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age - 3300 to 1600 BC. Dimens…

A re-utilised flint core, re-used as a hammerstone. Originally a core comprising of at least six large to medium sized flakes taken from two platforms from a naturally fractured nodule fragment of flint with thick chalky cortex surviving at one end and part of one side. The core has been re-utilised as a hammerstone; evidence of this can be seen in an area of well developed characteristic impact chatter and abrasion running around almost half of the circumference. An area of cortex appears to been utilised for grip and is unaffected. The object has high-gloss surfaces where flint is e…

A large multi-platform core produced in the process of broad flake manufacture. The object is formed from a sub-ovate worn flint nodule retaining small patches of cortex. All faces show removal of large broad flakes struck from different angles. The flint is light to mid grey with matt beige inclusions, a low-gloss patina and areas of red brown ferrous staining, mainly on ridges. Date: Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age - 3300 to 1600 BC. Dimensions: 81mm x 64.7mm x34mm. Weight: 203g.

Both faces show removal of large broad flakes. The flint is light to mid grey in colour with a low-gloss patina and areas of red brown ferrous staining mainly on ridges, one face is more heavily re-cortified than the other and a small area of cortex remains. Hammerstone pits and abrasions are also visible around the central equator, which is strong evidence to suggest its re-use as a hammerstone. Date: Late Neoli…

Mid blue-grey and pale grrey mottled flint with iron staining. The surfaces are semi-matt with incipient patination. There are numerous elongate flake removals from opposed ends. One platform has been truncated by the removal from the second platform, resulting in a wedge shaped end. There may have been an attempt to rejuvenate the second platform prior to discarding it.

A flint core made on a broken fragment of a ground and polished axehead. The object utilises the fore-section (cutting edge) of the axehead, originally with a lenticular cross-section, faceted edges and curved cutting edge. Part of a steeply angled cross-body break remains visible. The fragment has been steeply re-flaked by removal of broad flakes along one edge and part of the other edge to form a keeled core edge. The flint is light grey and mottled and has a mid-gloss patina. A number of red-brown ferrous stains are present, most from agricultural plough scrapes. Date: Late Neol…

A single platform sub-conical bladelet core. The tip of the core tapers to a blunt point and there are several flake scars on the irregular platform surface, but all appear to relate to platform preparation. The bladelet removal scars are broadly parallel, modern edge damage means that the presence and degree of platform dressing abrasion cannot be determined. The flint is mid grey, slightly mottled with faint incipient blue-white patination in places and high-gloss patina with some red-brown ferrous staining along flake scar ridges. Date: Mesolithic - 10000 to 4000BC Dimensions…

A single platform sub-conical blade or bladelet core. The removal scars are sub-parallel, and vary markedly in size; some hinge fracture terminations are present. Modern edge damage means that the presence and degree of platform dressing abrasion cannot be determined. The flint is mid to dark grey mottled with a high-gloss patina and some red-brown ferrous staining along flake scar ridges. Date: Mesolithic to Early Neolithic 10000 to 3300BC.
