A large sub-triangular secondary flake of flint. The flint is opaque and mottled light to mid-grey and beige, now covered in a thin layer of off-white re-patination creating a low-gloss patina. Both faces show areas of reddish brown ferrous staining, mainly to ridges. An area of chalky nodular cortex remains on the left side margin of the dorsal face. The right side margin of the dorsal face shows heavy edge fracturing which is consistent with heavy-duty scraping; and dissimilar to edge damage on the remainder of the flake. Broad flake removal scars are visible across the dorsal face.…

A tertiary flint retouched flake. Sub-triangular in shape. The flint is opaque and mottled mid to light brown with a low-gloss patina. There are areas of possible retouch along the right and left side margins close to the proximal end where a waisted area has been created.

A secondary retouched flint flake. It is sub-triangular in shape. The flint is semi-translucent, dark mottled brown with a mid-gloss patina, some areas show a very thin, blue-white speckled re-cortification. Thick chalky cortex remains on three small areas of the dorsal face. The dorsal face shows broad flake removal scars and short, scaled semi-abrupt retouch along the straight edge of the proximal end, evidence of possible opportunistic use of the chiseled feature as a scraper. The ventral face shows a fairly prominent bulb of percussion with large bulbar scar indicating probable use…

A retouched tertiary flint flake. Sub-oval with one end rounded, one end rectilinear, it has a trapezoidal cross-section. The flint is opaque and dark grey, now covered in a thin speckled layer of off white recortification with a low-gloss patina. The dorsal face shows long blade flake removal scars with some crude retouch at the distal end and possible sub-parallel, semi-abrupt retouch along the lower right side margin. Both areas of retouch reveal the natural darker flint indicating modification at a later date. The ventral face has a fairly prominent bulb of percussion following on …

A sub-oval flake of Portland chert with possible deliberate notches. The chert is opaque, mid-grey in colour with beige mottles and a large oval beige inclusion, the patina is low-gloss. A possible deliberate notch is visible on the right side margin of the dorsal face near the proximal end and another at the distal end. A third sharper notch on the left side margin is probably due to modern post-depositional damage. The dorsal face shows flake removal scars with strong ripples, the ventral face shows no apparent bulb of percussion indicating probable use of a soft hammer, there are h…

A secondary flint flake of dark grey to mid grey mottled flint with a glossy to semi-gloss patina. There is a wide striking platform and diffuse bulb of percussion at the proximal end. There a numerous closely spaced waves of percussion on the vemntral face. There are several flaking scars on the dorsal face and a narrow strip of nodule cortex remains along a flaking ridge.

A retouched tertiary flint blade flake. Produced in the process of blade manufacture this typically long, elongate flake is mid-light mottled brown, semi-translucent in areas and has a mid-gloss patina with some reddish brown ferrous staining mainly on flake ridges. The dorsal face shows three parallel blade flake removal scars giving the piece a trapezoidal cross section, the left margin has been retouched from the distal end, half way down the flake creating a long shallow knotch, the retouch is short, scaled and semi-abrupt.

A small retouched flake. Made using a secondary blade flake of mid grey-brown flint. The surface is glossy and there is are two areas of nodule cortex on one margin at the distal end. The proximal end has been removed. There are some tightly spaced waves of percussion on the ventral face. The dorsal face has several parallel flaking scars. There is a small area of abrupt retouch worked from the ventral face (amounting to approximately 25 % of the margins). Date: Neolithic c.3500 - 2100 BC Dimensions: 28 mm x 18 mm x 3 mm Weight: 2 g
