Six waste flint flakes. Flake 1: A secondary sub-oval flake of flint now entirely covered in a smooth, off-white repatination giving an opaque, low-gloss patina. Thick nodular cortex remains on the proximal end of the dorsal face, and the distal end of both faces. The dorsal face shows broad flake scars, the ventral face shows a low bulb of percussion with bulbar scar indicating probable use of a soft hammer. Date: Neolithic 4000 BC - 2350 BC Dimensions: 45.9 mm x 41.4 mm x 10.9 mm Weight: 19.9 g Flake 2: A secondary sub-oval flake of flint now entirely covered in a smooth, off-white r…

A large flint blade flake or blade. A tertiary flake of heavily patinated and worn pale grey flint. The patina is matt and yellow-white. An elongate flake with a trapeziodal cross section. A wide striking platform at the proximal end and possibly broken distally. There is a wide bulb of percussion with radiating hackles at on the ventral face of the proximal end and widely space waves of percussion along the length. On the dorsal face are three main parallel flake removals and a smaller flake removal at the top. The patination is not typical of the usual calcareous Dorset soils. The ed…

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…

Sevon incomplete flakes prehistoric flint debitage. The flakes represent a number of flint sources, and are a mix of tertiary and secondary flakes, although where it survives the area still covered by cortex is invariably small. The proximal end survives on three flakes, these all have relatively diffuse bulbs of percussion, only one exhibiting a bulbar scar and with one exhibtiign a slight 'lip' at the platform, suggesting the use of a soft hammer. One flake exhibits platform preparation, and clear evidence of multiple striking platforms. The flakes exhibit a mixture of sub-parallel a…

Flake 1: A large irregular shaped tertiary flake of Portland chert classed as debitage, produced during the process of lithic reduction. The chert is characteristically opaque and mottled mid to dark grey in colour with a low gloss patina, some modern damage has exposed a darker chert which has a more consistant colour indicating the the mottled effect which now covers the flake is a thin layer of re-cortifiction. The dorsal face shows hackly broad flake removal scars and the distal end appears to have been broken off. The ventral face shows a prominent bulb of percussion indicating p…

Two flint waste flakes> 1] An incomplete secondary flake of pale grey flint with a matt patina and patched of abraded nodule cortex. The flake is trapeziodal to trangular in cross section and is probably the result of blade production. It has been broken off at the proximal end after it was discarded. The distal end terminates in a hinge fracture. There are several parallel flake removals on the dorsal face.
