Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A bifacially worked flint flake. Mid grey-mottled flint with a heavy off-white patina and some iron staining. The flake has a small striking platform at the proximal end with a small, well-defined bulb of percussion with a large bulbar scar. There is shallow, broad-flaked retouch around the edges on both the ventral and dorsal faces. This is possible a crude knife or a rough-out for an arrowhead. Date: Neolithic to Bronze Age - c. 4000 - 1600 BC Dmensions: 35.5 mm x 29 mm x 10 mm Weight: 10 g

A bifacially flaked laurel leaf-shaped knife. The flint is dark and mid-grey in colour with a low gloss patina. There are areas of thick, off-white nodule cortex reatined on the dorsal face towards the tip and at the butt. The ventral face has several large transverse thinning flake removals from the side edges. The dorsal face is more crudely worked with fewer flakes, also from the side edges. The tip of the knife has also been bifacially worked. The knife has an asymmetrical lentoid profile, deeper on the dorsal face. Date: Neolithic - c. 4000 - 250 BC Dimensions: 81 mm x 42.6 mm x 2…

A large lithic implement, possibly a fabricator or axe roughout. It is elongate in shape with a rounded distal end and rectilinear proximal end and plano convex section. Patches of thick nodular cortex remain along the right side margin and distal end of the dorsal face with a thinner orangey sub-layer of cortification in between patches and covering the whole of the ventral face. Flaking to the upper face is crude with many scars terminating in hinge fractures. The ventral face is flat. Date: Late Neolithic to early Bronze Age BC 3300 - BC 1600.

A bifacially worked flint implement. Probably a flaked axe or axe roughtout. The piece is made on a naturally fractured nodule fragment and apperas to have been broken in manufacture; a single perpendicular cross-body break with marked lip on one side suggests end-shock during knapping. The (presumed) rearward part of the object is absent. Shallow to semi-shallow irregular flaking scars are evident on three facets; the fourth retains original fractured surface, providing an assymetric trapezoidal cross-section. The margins are broadly mid-line, but one is rather irregular, both have b…

A bifacially worked flint implement made on a naturally fractured nodule fragment. The object is elongate but irregularly shaped and has a thick plano-convex cross section, made thinner at one end by a short, deep flake removal with pronounced bulb and hinge scars. Flaking on the convex surface is shallow and irregular, and there is a small patch of abraded chalky cortex near the thicker end. The opposed face retains a small area of naturally fractured surface but has been extensively modified with broad, flattish flaking, some with incipient and terminal hinges. There are two steep f…

A thin flaked flint implement, possibly an axe rough-out. One end rounded, one end rectilinear. The object is bifacially flaked and broken at one end. The flaking is well executed using a soft hammer to form a slightly plano-convex cross section. The margins taper slightly inward from the break to an irregular sub-rounded butt. The break is cross-body and is typical of end-shock during manufacture. The original flint appears to be light grey and mottled, now with an all over pale grey glossy patina, with some reddish brown ferrous staining. Date: Neolithic 4000 to 2351 BC. Dimensions…

A bifacially worked tool, possibly a flaked dagger rough-out, broken at one end. One end rounded, one end rectilinear, the object is broad, but relatively well thinned (c 4.5/1 width/thickness ratio) with well executed invasive soft hammer flaking forming a lenticular cross-section. The margins are slightly convex with well developed centre lines and taper inwards slightly from the break to a sub-rounded tip. The break is flat and runs straight across the body of the piece; it probably represents a flex-break or end shock originating at a coarse inclusion within the stone. The flint is…

A crude denticulate scraper or single platform core on a worn secondary nodule fragment of flint. The object is sub-oval in shape with lenticular cross section, an area of cortex remains, covering 50% of the central face. The flint is mid-grey and is now covered in a thin speckled blue-white recortification, except for areas of modern damage which show the natural colour of the flint, areas of reddish brown ferrous staining are also visible. Multiple broad flake removal scars to the steep sides surround the whole of the object. Date: Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age - 3300 to 160…

A probable flint knife dating from the Neolithic to Early Bronze Age (c. 4000 to 1600 BC). A large piece of orange-brown flint with off- white coretex on one face. The dorsal face shows evidence of possible polish at one end and there has been clear knapping on both faces around the unbroken parts of the margin. At one end is a clear break on one side of it and this suggests that it is part of what was once a larger tool. There is no clear bulb of production or striking platform.

A probable hammerstone or grinding tool. A large, tapering, flint core of light grey-brown flint with heavy off-white mottled patination and frequent iron staining. A multi-platform core which has subsequently been re-used at its widest, rounded end, probably to crush or grind another material. This has resulted in an area of use chatter like that seen on round hammerstones. Date: Neolithic to Early Bronze Age - 4000 to 1600 BC Dimensions: 95.2 mm x 47.9 mm x 44.1 mm Weight: 223 g

A bifacially worked lithic implement made on a bi-convex, sub-oval, tertiary flake of dark grey flint (visible on areas of flaking due to modern damage). This could be described as a probable discoidal knife.The flint is opaque and covered in a blue-white re-cortification with a low-gloss patina and areas of common reddish brown ferrous stains. Multiple broad flake and narrow blade removal scars are visible across both faces and the margins show crossed abrupt retouch to create a keeled edge around the whole object.

A large crudely worked flint pick. The pick is roughly rectangular in shape, tapering slightly at one end. There are several longitudinal flake removals, struck from opposing ends (this has resulted in a thickened area around the middle of the pick). At the narrow end a small amount of striking platform remains and the opposing, wider end has been removed by transverse flaking. The flint has a heavy white patina.This was found on a beach and shows some signs of abrasion.

A lithic impliment of uncertain function but probably from the Neolithic to Bronze age period. Circa 4000-1600 BC. The flint is sub-conical in shape, triangular in profile and has numerous flake removals from different angles. The distal end has a series of parallel scars (retouch). The proximinal end has no clear evidence of bulb of percussion and flake removal extends into and probably beyond the butt. This seems to have broken at this point in antiquity. The flint is two tone, with a angled grey brown to a light grey separated by a thin white band. Length of flint: 42.01 mm. Width: …

A knapped/worked flint probably dating to the Neolithic period.Circa 4000 BC-2700BC. The flint has a large bulb of percussion eminating from a broad platform.

A probable small flint blade of late Mesolithic to early Neolithic date, Circa 6500 BC to 2900 BC. The blade has a bowed profile and is paralled sided.

An incomplete flint axehead of Neolithic date. The piece probably represents approximately half of the original tool, the patination of the break suggesting the upper portion was lost in antiquity. The axehead is pointed-oval in section, its straight sides flaring towards a convex cutting edge. On both surfaces there are smooth areas where the tool has been ground and polished; sharpening flakes, which angle down towards the sides, appear to have been struck through this surface, indicating that this is a finished piece that has subsequently been reworked. The exposed flint is light…

A flint blade of probable Early Neolithic date. The tool is roughly eliptical in plan, being irregular at the proximal end and tapering to a point at the distal. The dorsal surface exhibits two longitudinal arises, while the ventral surface has a bulb of percussion, located beneath a portion of the core platform, and clear rippling. The edges are mostly irregular, probably as a result of wear through use of the tool. The flint is a slightly patinated dark grey. Dimensions: 68mm long, 25.1mm wide, 3.9mm thick. Weight: 8g.
