A complete end and side scraper of Neolithic date (4000-2350BC). This is a D shaped scraper knapped from a secondary flake with previous flake removals on the dorsal surface and remaining cortex along the left lateral edge. The bulb of percussion is very diffuse and there is a distinctive lip on the striking platform, both indicative of the soft hammer percussion technique. This may also tentatively suggest an earlier Neolithic date as soft hammer was used less in the later Neolithic. There is continuous retouch along the left edge, distal end, and halfway up the right edge of the d…

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…

A flint flake. This is a tertiary flake, there is no cortex surviving. It is triangular in cross section with the apex of the triangle at the left edge, the right edge is a flat section. It is possible that this object represents a fragment of a larger flake that has broken lengthways. The proximal end is jagged. The ventral face has a small bulb of percussion but otherwise no evidence of striking. This means it was probably struck with a soft hammer and may therefore date to the Early Neolithic (or earlier). The flake has a hinge termination at the distal end. The dorsal face i…

A flint core which probably dates from the late Neolithic to the Bronze Age. The core is discoidal with flakes having been removed from multiple faces. It appears that knapping has originally taken place from two locations on opposite side of the core, or possibly opposite sides of the same platform. That or those platforms have then been removed by knapping across the width of the core. This means that none of the original striking platforms are visible. A range of flakes of irregular size and shape, a mixture of narrow and broader flakes, appear to have been removed from the c…
