35 pieces of flint working debitage, probably Early Neolithic, c. 4,000-3,300BC, all made from the same, mid-grey, translucent flint. 19 pieces show tertiary flint working (second image) and 16 secondary flint working (first image) retaining some of the original cortex. The nature of this suggests the use of flint cobbles as raw material. The flints can be described as 'blade like flakes' which, with the use of a soft hammer, supports the Early Neolithic dating. Only one piece is recorticated, and possilby intrusive, the rest is clean and the assemblage appears homogeneous.

Object type: POLISHED AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete flint? polished axehead dating to the Neolithic period (c. 4000-2500 BC). The axe is in very good condition and is of high quality. The stone is a mottled light grey and mid brown colour. The axe has side facets and a thin butt. It has been polished all over and the cutting edge has been resharpened and re-polished in antiquity after being damaged. An area of damage on one side was caused by the finder hitting it with a pickaxe when it was discovered some c. 60 years ago. This is a very nice example of a Neolithic polished axe.

A large thin oval flake with covering angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect, and with invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect on one side. The lower or butt end of the arrowhead is lost to a recent break. The broad blade would maximise blood loss from a quarry, weakening it and enabling dogs and hunters to follow its spoor.

Record ID: HAMP-EA2B47
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An undatable Prehistoric (Neolithic to Bronze Age, 4000-800 BC) retouched tertiary flint flake, opaque and heavily patinated. The bulb of percussion is low. There is apparent retouch to the lower right dorsal edge (long, scaled, low-angle), creating a tang of the lower half of the flake. Measures 40.6x14.9x2.7mm and weighs 1.63g. Kevin Leahy, Finds Adviser, comments 'I did wonder if this could be a late Glacial 'shouldered point' but the extent of the retouch is not convincing' (pers. comm. 7.11.17).
