A complete knapped lithic implement of late Neolithic to early Bronze Age date, circa 2700 BC - 1600 BC. The implement is a plano-convex knife formed from a secondary flake which is L-shaped in plan and ovate in section. The ventral surface is largely flat though with a bulb of percussion. The dorsal surface displays short, low angled, sub-parallel removals and retains c.40% cortex to the left side. The flint is a dark blue/grey colour. The implement is 52.5mm long, 36.3mm wide, 10.8mm thick and weighs 18.5g.

A complete flint knife of broad Mesolithic to Early Bronze Age date (10000-1500BC). Knives of this type do not have distinctive period characteristics, with long flakes, unretouched cutting edge, and remaining cortex on the opposite edge present on examples from all periods (see Butler 2005). This example is a concavo-convex knife knapped from a secondary flake with cortex remaining on the right edge and previous long flake removals on the dorsal surface. There is a diffuse bulb of percussion and the small striking platform is still present. The left cutting edge in sharp and unretouc…

A complete knapped lithic implement of Neolithic date (circa 4000-2350BC). The implement is most likely a knife, although could be a small Neolithic hand-axe shaped implement known as an 'Ovate' dating to the Late Neolithic (3000-2350BC). However, the implement is not bifacially worked to the extent expected of an Ovate. The implement appears to have been knapped from a primary flake, from which secondary and tertiary flakes have been removed from the ventral surface. The Dorsal face has been worked to remove cortex on the left medial edge, leaving a substantial amount on the right…

An incomplete flint knife of the late Neolithic to early Bronze Age, c. 2500-1500 BC. The flint consists of the end of a plano-convex knife bifacially knapped from a grey-brown flint.The blade has snapped off, with the break clearly visible in the pointed-oval section, and leaving only the 'butt' of the knife. It has a round end and is broadest at the base, tapering toward the now missing point. All edges have been pressure-flaked. The knife is well made.
