Record ID: SUR-79BD67
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Surrey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two pieces of worked flint with a pale grey-white and heavily weathered appearance and of probable Mesolithic to Bronze Age date. Left: a fragment of 2.3g measuring 30.9mm by 16.0mm by 6.3mm, with flake removal scars to the dorsal side and a clear bulb of percussion to the reverse. No evidence for retouch, so most likely debitage. Right: a small flake fragment of 0.2g measuring 9.9mm by 10.3mm by 2.1mm. Clear flake removal scars to the dorsal side; the curve to the fragment may suggest a waste flake from bladelet preparation rather than a fragment of a finished tool.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete knapped lithic implement of late Neolithic to early Bronze Age date, circa 2700 BC - 1600 BC. The implement is a fragment of the proximal portion of a plano-convex knife formed from a tertiary flake which is D-shaped in plan and ovate in section. The ventral surface is largely flat though displaying some larger removals. The dorsal surface displays short, low angled, sub-parallel removals. The flint is a light blue/grey colour. The implement is 32.5mm long, 31.7mm wide, 10.1mm thick and weighs 5.9g.

Object type: PICK
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: West Berkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete worked flint pick of Neolithic date. The pick has been formed on a nodule of mottled grey/white flint with iron staining evident of the crests of the removals. The flint has been bifacially worked and a removal across the butt does look tranchet-like but on closer inspection this has been ruled out. The tip of the pick is has a large ridge behind it with multi-directional removals on the side of the tip. Suggested date Neolithic 4000-2000 BC.

Flint awl on a secondary flake that has one arise on the dorsal and a large bulb-of-percussion on the ventral. Retouch is present on the left which is short and semi-abrupt creating a concave scraper, flakes have been removed from the right sides but these appear to be edge damage rather than retouch. Further retouch is found on the forward edge consisting of low, inverse flake removal creating a awl point. Very dark grey flint with lighter grey patches, 30% cortex to the rear. The record has been generated from an emailed images supplied by the finder.

Object type: CORE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint core fragment of probably late Neolithic to early Bronze Age date, about 3300 BC - 1000 BC. It is formed on patinated flint, a tertiary chunk. It is a complex core, broadly oval in plan and cross-section. There are previous removal scars on all faces, with most blade removals struck from two platforms opposite to each other, but other flakes struck from other directions. The products appear to have been a mixture of broad flakes and small blades. The core is 53.5mm long, 29.1mm wide and 28.2mm thick. 37g.
