Object type: FLAKED AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flaked flint axehead. The flint is mottled mid grey and grey brown with a low-gloss patina. A small area of off-white nodule cortex remains on one face. There is some iron staining along the flake ridges. Sub-trapezoidal in shape with a rounded, tapered but and a shallow convex cutting edge. It has been crudely bifacially flaked, producing an asymmetrical cutting edge. One face is more crudely worked than the other, with a large, irregular hinge fracture and several flake removal scars from the side edges.. The other face has numerous, smaller flake removal scars from all directions …

County: Dorset

A small flaked axehead. The axe is cordate in shape, oval in cross section and is bifacially worked. Both faces show invasive covering flaking with some flakes terminating in hinge fractures indicating probable use of a hard hammer. The flint is opaque and with a light beige, chalky patina, with multiple areas of less siliceous honey-coloured flint. Areas of ferrous staining are visible mainly on the flake ridges. A remnant of a the striking platform is evident at one end and it is possible the axe was made on a large, naturally fractured piece. Date: Neolithic - c. 4000 - 2350 BC Dime…

Record ID: DOR-D2B9CE
Object type: FLAKED AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible flaked axehead made on a small, tapering secondary nodule of mottled semi-translucent mid to dark grey flint with high-gloss patina. Crude in shape with an asymmetric oval cross section. Most of the surface retains off-white, chalky cortex, with only the cutting edge and two areas on one face showing exposed flint. There is some unifacial flaking on both margins, one side had a deep hinge fracture and abrupt to semi invasive bifacial flaking of the wider end to form the irregular sub-curvilinear cutting edge. The narrow butt end of the nodule appears to have been lost prior…
