County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An elongate secondary flake of flint produced during the process of lithic reduction. The flint is opaque, mid grey and has a low-gloss patina with areas of heavy, reddish brown ferrous staining, mainly on flake scar ridges. A small area of chalky nodular cortex remains on the proximal end. The dorsal face shows flaking from at least two directions. Broad flake scars are visible across the dorsal face. The ventral face shows a large bulbar scar and 90 degree termination. Date: Neolithic 4000 BC - 2350 BC Dimensions: 91.6 mm x 53.5mm x 22.1 mm Weight: 139 g

An elongate secondary flake of flint produced during the process of lithic reduction. The flint is opaque, mid-brown with darker mottling and has a low-gloss patina with areas of heavy, reddish brown ferrous staining, mainly on flake scar ridges. A small area of chalky nodular cortex remains on the dorsal face distal end. Broad flake scars and more linear blade scars are visible across the dorsal face. The flake does show some post-depositional edge damage however there is no convincing reworking or retouch. The ventral face shows a fairly low bulb of percussion indicating probable use…

A scraper tool made on a large sub-oval secondary flake of flint. Thick, worn nodular cortex remains over approximately 60% of the left side of the dorsal face leaving the right side margin and distal end exposed. The distal end shows one previous flake scar with minor flaking, the right side margin has been modified from the ventral face with semi-abrupt, scaled retouch to produce the crude and slightly denticulate scraping edge. The ventral face shows a low bulb of percussion and bulbar scar indicating probable use of soft hammer. The flint is now covered an opaque, chalky, off-whit…

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 large side scraper tool made on a sub-oval primary flake of chert. The chert is opaque and mottled light to mid-grey and beige with a mid-gloss patina. The dorsal face is almost entirely covered in thick, chalky nodular cortex except for the wide and curved proximal end which has been worked with semi invasive, semi-abrupt, sub-parallel retouch creating a steep sided curvilinear scraper edge. The ventral face shows a low bulb of percussion with hinge fracture in the form of a large bulbous ridge at the distal end indicating probable use of a soft hammer. Date: Late Neolithic 3300 BC

Object type: CORE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…
