Object type: BARBED AND TANGED ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Gloucestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A near complete Early Bronze Age barbed and tanged flint arrowhead. This arrowhead has been knapped from a mottled mid grey white coloured piece of flint. It is broadly sub-triangular in plan and lentoid in cross section. The arrowhead has been knapped using a number of different techniques, including direct and indirect percussion, as well as pressure / ripple / invasive flaking. Originally it was broadly symmetrical in shape; however due to movement within the soil one barb and the tip are lost due to recent unpatinated breaks. Both the long sides of the arrowhead have been retouche…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
: Flint with cortex possible backed blade. A thin flake with a broad flake trimmed from its dorsal side and with broad and narrow flakes struck from its dorsal side. The cortex may have been retained to enable pressure to be exerted on the opposite cutting edge, as a backed blade. A creamy patina suggests it has subsequently endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC Length: 30.1mm, Width: 25.9mm, Thickness: 5.6mm, Weight: 3.82gms

An assemblage of lithic artefacts found within an approximate 0.25km2 area. Many of the flints appear to be similar in form, colour and manufacture process and so it is suggested that the majority of them are representative of an assemblage from a single occupation site. This does not suggest that they originate from the same deposition sequence or event, but that they are broadly similar in form to suggest a Mesolithic date across the assemblage. For ease of explanation, the assemblage has been separated into lithics of a specific form or suggested function. Hammerstones …

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary, soft hammer struck blade, of pale grey patinated flint, recent damage to both lateral edges reveal that the flint was originally black, other than that, the edges appear to be without retouch. The distal end (on the dorsal face) has a small flake scar running 180 degrees to the direction of the main blow to remove this blade, an indication that this was struck from an opposed platform core. The platform is abraded to help with the detachment of the blade, so it is likely, although a little short, that this blade is Late (final) Upper Palaeolothic in date, 12,000 to 10,000 BC.

Tertiary struck small blade of white patinated flint, bulb of percussion removed, and the dorsal face has, on one side, flake scars removed at 90 degrees to the direction of the blade, this is due to being struck from a multi-platform core, both lateral edges are irregularly damaged. Although it is small, this is not a direct indication of being Mesolithic, also being struck from a multi-platform core could be an indication of a latter date; most likely Neolithic or Bronze Age, 4,000 to 701 BC.

A knapped flint transverse chisel arrowhead dating to the later Neolithic period, c. 2750-2350BC. The object is formed of a dark grey, almost black flint, which lightens to a brown shade around its perimeter. It was shaped by a series of removals, creating a triangular shape with a slightly curved spine radiating from the bulb of percussion. A further small removal on the bulb of percussion has reduced the height of this point. The dorsal face is domed, while the ventral face is flattened. There are points at both the proximal and distal ends, although the latter is broader and appear…

A narrow finger-shaped rod with covering angled scalar retouch across its dorsal side and with a flat and slightly concave ventral surface; chips from the underside are probably adventitious damage, though as the tint of the flint is identical at these sites it may have been incurred in antiquity. Suggested date: Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age, 2700-1600 BC. Length: 52.7mm, Width: 15.6mm, Thickness: 8.9mm, Weight: 8.34gms

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Brown translucent flint with cortex strip, lithic implement. A thin flake with broad and narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, and with a prominent bulb on its ventral surface. The cortex strip is opposite a curving cutting edge with short scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect following it, suggesting a function as a backed blade. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect also trims the cortex itself, possibly to produce a very finely serrated implement. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC Length: 23.8mm, Width: 27.2mm, Thickness: 4.1mm…
