A flint fabricator. Bifacially flaked and elongate in shape with an oval section. The object tapers from a rounded end to a smaller more pointed end. The larger end retains cortex, this also covers around one third of one face. The flaking is covering, scaled and low angle. The flint is opaque, light beige with a low-gloss patina, now covered in a layer of off-white chalky re-cortification. Dr Kevin Leahy states 'fabricators are difficult to date and a wide range must be suggested.'Date: Early Mesolthic to late Bronze Age 10000 BC to 800 BC. Dimensions: 99.2mm x 11.31mm x 19.2mm. Weig…

A flint fabricator or possible a Neolithic laurel leaf - knife. Made using a long tertiary flake of flint, it is elongate in shape with an oval section. The flint is opaque mottled dark to light grey with a mid-gloss patina. Areas of reddish brown ferrous staining are visible. Both faces show covering scaled, low-angle retouch struck from each edge creating a keeled edge and central ridge. One end has been flaked into a thinned neck. Date: Neolithic to late Bronze Age 4000 BC to 800 BC. Dimensions: 102.6 mm x 36.5 mm x 15.5 mm Weight: 64.9 g Dr Kevin Leahy states 'fabricators are dif…

A fabricator made on a thick, tertiary flake of flint. Elongate in shape with a trapezoidal cross-section. The flint is opaque, mid to light grey with a low-gloss patina, areas of reddish brown ferrous stains are visible, mainly to flake scar ridges. The side faces show covering, scaled, semi-abrupt retouch, the upper face is flat and smooth with one end showing removal of large flakes to create a tapering point, the other end shows removal of one broad flake. The lower face shows scaled flaking along margins. Date: Neolithic - 4000 BC - 2351 BC. Dimensions: 95.5mm x 21mm 15.5mm. We…

A probable fabricator tool made across a tertiary flint flake. The tool is elongate in shape with a lentoid cross section tapering to a point at each end. The flint is semi-opaque and mid grey with a mid gloss patina. The retouch to the dorsal face is covering and scaled and semi-abrupt creating a central ridge, all margins show finer flaking and areas of neat parallel retouch. The ventral face shows ripples and flaking scars emanating from one side. Date: Neolithic 4000 BC to 2350 BC. Dimensions: 65mm x 21.3mm x 13.1mm. Weight: 18g.

Object type: FABRICATOR
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A rectangular flint fabricator. Made on a thick, curved flake of mid-grey flint. There is an area of nodule cortex on the dorsal face. The surface has a mottled blue-white semi-gloss patina. Part of the striking point and bulb of percussion of the flake are retained at the proximal end. The margins have been retouched by steep, irregular percussion flaking and appear deliberately blunted. Both the distal and the proximal ends are heavily worn and smoothed. The fabricator has a plano-convex cross section. Date: Neolithic - c. 4000 to 2350 BC Dimensions: 59.83 mm x 18.34 mm x 14.68 mm

A rectangular flint fabricator. Made on a thick, curved flake of pale grey flint. The surface has a low-gloss patina and areas of iron staining. The striking platformand bulb of percussion of the flake areabsent. The margins have been retouched by steep, irregular percussion flaking and appear deliberately blunted. Both the distal and the proximal ends are heavily worn and smoothed. The fabricator has a triangular lateral cross section and is triangular on longitudinal axis. Date: Neolithic - c. 4000 to 2350 BC Dimensions: 64.12 mm x 21.35 mm x 17.25 mm Weight: 32.35 g

A flint fabricator made using an older heavily patinated flake. A secondary flake of light grey brown flint. It has a thick plano-convex cross section. The earlier surface is patinated off white ant the more recent working has a mid gloss surface. The sides, proximal end and distal ends are all worked and/or abraded. The ventral face is slightly curving and smooth. On the dorsal face are the remnants of several elongate flaking scars, probably from blade production, and a patch of thick nodule cortex. In reuse the long margins have long abrupt, sub- parallel retouch and are slightly …

A complete flint fabricator. Made using a thick primary flake very dark grey to black highly siliceous flint which retains an area of nodule cortex on the dorsal face. The striking platform and bulb of percussion have been partially ground out and there are areas of polish and grinding on all surfaces, often removing the flake scar ridges. The finger-shaped fabricator has a profile which is triangular at the distal end and changes to D-shaped at the proximal end. There a remnants of large scale abrupt retouch along the long edges, worked from the ventral face. Date: Neolithic to Earl…

Knapped flint fabricator made on a large flake of Mesolithic to Early Bronze Age date. The bulb of percussion has been removed but the percussion ripple and visible. It is triangular in section with a central ridge on the dorsal face becoming thicker at the proximal end. There is retouch all around the edge: abrupt, scalar, short to long retouch down the sides and long, parallel, abrupt retouch around both ends. The right side (seen from the dorsal face) is straight while the left has a series of shallow notches. The flint is mid grey with paler mottling. It is 63.2mm long, 21.5mm wid…

A probable fabricator made on a thick flake of light grey brown flint with a mid gloss patina. A long thin piece with a high trapezoidal cross section. The bulb of percussion and platform has been removed.. There is abrupt long scalar retouch down both sides on the dorsal face. The distal end is chipped and abraded, probably through use. Fabricators are a recognisable and distinctive tool type however their function and dating is poorly understood. Date:Mesolithic to Bronze Age- 8300 - 800 BC Dimensions: 61 mm x 21 mm x 13.5 mm Weight: 22 g
