Object type: POLISHED AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A polished stone axehead, which is complete and dates to the neolithic period. The axe is oval in section with a rounded tapering butt, which has slight pre-depositional damage. The cutting edge of the axe is flat though it does taper slightly and has rounded edges. From the butt end to the cutting end of the axe it tapers, (64mm to 35mm), with a maximum thickness of 31mm. There is evidence on the cutting edge of flaking and damage which is pre-depositional in appearence. The sides of the axe are squared, with concave faces (both front and back). The axeheads polish is very well preserved.

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Late Neolithic stone axehead of Langdale Type, finished and polished. It has a curved cutting edge and slightly tapering sides to a thin, broad butt which shows some damage (cracks and dents) on the smooth, polished surface, resembling a cracked egg shell. The axe was made from dark/light grey/beige stone, probably a fine-grained volcanic tuff from Great Langdale but lacking the characteristic facets down its sides. Compared to other Langdale axes, at only about 13.5cms it is a fairly short example of that type.

Lithic implement, probably a knife or scraper. It was knapped from light grey speckled flint and is hardly patinated. The dorsal face shows several large facets while the ventral face shows numerous waves/ripples. There are retouch marks forming a very ragged edge all around the edges on both the ventral and dorsal faces, although they are slightly more pronounced on the dorsal face.

Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Very small stone axe, probably dating from the Late Neolithic period, i.e. c. 2500-2100 BC. The axe is knapped from a dark grey buff (probably) volcanic tuff or possibly a softer material, i.e. sandstone. The axe is roughly triangular in shape with a straight and unworked blade (although that is difficult to determine because the surface is very worn) and long, shaped side facets. All surfaces are very worn and it is difficult to ascertain what wear marks are older and which are more recent. The material seems quite soft and (possibly) unusual for making a stone axe since even narrower…

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small piece of worked flint, very probably a small piece of debitage dating from the late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age, i.e. 2500-1500BC, possibly earlier (exact dating of stray finds of flint debitage is very difficult). The piece is small and can be compared to pieces of flint and chert debitage from Anglezarke Moor in Lancashire which was a well-known seasonal flint-working site throughout the Stone and Bronze Age. This flint is of white colour and it is not opaque or translucent. The white colour either suggests that the waste flake either suffered from extreme heat at some point…

County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Complete 'D' shaped scraper knapped from grey black flint and dating from the late Neolithic period 2500-2100BC, possibly a Riley Type 5 (Bond, C. Plate 5.112 and 5.113). The scraper is complete, made from a short, round flake with retouch along the total distal and halfway up the two mesial edges. Both the ventral and dorsal faces are very smooth with even ripple marks. Scrapers could have many uses from scraping the fat off animal skins, to scraping the bark off arrow shafts. The length is 42mm, width 34mm, thickness 6mm and the weight is 14.21g.

Black Pennines chert scraper possibly Late Mesolithic to Early Neolithic 6500-2900 BC. The chert is a dull black in colour with traces of the original white banding at the distal end. The surface reveals traces of weathering but this would be consistent with the original working of the weathered face for extraction. There are sources of black chert in the South Pennines. The chert is worked on 4 faces and 2 edges with 4 blade scars visible. The length is 3.5mm in length and 1mm in width.
