An assemblage of three side scrapers probably dating from the the Neolithic to Early Bronze Age. Scraper 1 has been struck off a secondary flake and retains some thin mottled brown pebble cortex on its dorsal surface. The flint is a variable mottled grey/brown colour colour with a dark grey band, off white inclusions and lighter patches. It has a semi-glossy patina. The scraper is sub-rectangular in plan with the left and right edges being curved and the proximal and distal edges being on angles. The right edge, as seen when looking at the dorsal face has very short parallel, semi abr…

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.

Broken segment of a larger tool, probably a side and end scraper of Neolithic date, c.4000-2000 BC. It was formed on a large blade of dark grey tanslucent flint. The proximal end and the right edge (seen from the ventral face with proximal end downwards) is entirely missing to a long break. Impact scars on the ventral in the middle of this break may suggest it was deliberate or may be the result of post deposition impact, sone removals from it on the dorsal face may be accidental damage. There is extensive retouch on both faces along the remaining side to give a straigh edge. Semi abru…

Record ID: DOR-5471D2
Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A tertiary flint waste flake produced during the process of lithic reduction. The flake is sub-triangular with a triangular cross section. The flint is mid-brown and is covered almost entirely with a thin blue/white speckled re-cortification. The dorsal face shows broad flake removal scars with strong rippling. The ventral face shows a prominent bulb of percussion with rippling and terminates at the distal end in a hinge fracture indicating probable use of a hard hammer. Date: Neolithic to early Bronze Age - c. 4000 BC to 1600 BC. Dimensions: 49.4mm x 38.2mm x 9.9mm. Weight: 22.79g.

Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint knife. The knife is sub-oval with a rounded squared proximal end and has a largely plano convex cross section. The dorsal face shows covering, scaled, low angle and semi-abrupt flaking. The scars across the central ridge are broader with smaller scars around the margins. The ventral face is smooth and flat towards the distal end with a sight off centre bulb at the proximal end, several large flakes have been removed at the left side proximal end probably an attempt to remove the bulb of percussion. The original colour of the flint is a semi- translucent mid-brown, however the k…

Record ID: DOR-544DCE
Object type: FLAKED AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small flaked axehead. The axe is cordate in shape, oval in cross section and is bifacially worked. Both faces show invasive covering flaking with some flakes terminating in hinge fractures indicating probable use of a hard hammer. The flint is opaque and with a light beige, chalky patina, with multiple areas of less siliceous honey-coloured flint. Areas of ferrous staining are visible mainly on the flake ridges. A remnant of a the striking platform is evident at one end and it is possible the axe was made on a large, naturally fractured piece. Date: Neolithic - c. 4000 - 2350 BC Dime…

Flake 1: Sub-square secondary flake. Cortex remains on the distal end, the flint is semi-translucent and light brown with a mid-gloss patina. The dorsal face shows flaking scars, the ventral face shows no apparent bulb of percussion but diffuse rippling indicating probable use of a soft hammer. Dimensions: 22.31mm x 30.37mm x 4.26mm. Weight: 1.94g. Flake 2: Sub-oval secondary flake. Cortex remains on an area of the right side margin of the dorsal face, the flint is semi-translucent and light brown with a mid-gloss patina. The dorsal face shows flaking scars, the ventral face shows a…

Record ID: DOR-C67EF4
Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A tertiary flint waste flake. Sub-oval, the flint is opaque and mid-grey, now covered in a thin layer of smooth off-white re-cortification with a mid-gloss patina. The dorsal face shows broad flake removal scars. The ventral face shows a small fairly prominent bulb of percussion with strong rippling and hinge fractures emanating towards the distal end indicating probable use of a hard hammer. Date: Late Neolithic to early Bronze Age 3300 BC to 1600 BC. Dimensions: 30.8mm x 24mm x 2.3mm. Weight: 2.92g.

Record ID: DOR-C66553
Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small triangular retouched tertiary flint flake utilising a small waste flake. The flint is semi-translucent and mottled dark brown with a mid-gloss patina. The dorsal face shows a small area of sub-parallel, semi-abrupt retouch along the centre of the left side margin. The ventral face shows no apparent bulb of percussion indicating probable use of a soft hammer. The sharp point at the distal end was possibly utilised along with the left side of the flake. Date: Late Neolithic to early Bronze Age 3300 BC to 1600 BC. Dimensions: 29.9mm x 17.34mm x 4.49mm. Weight: 1.46g.
