Prehistoric, knapped or flaked, fair size flint waste flake or debitage. Irregular pentagonal shape, convex dorsal and concave ventral surfaces. Mottled pale grey/ white with speckled light brown coloured patches and ridges on the dorsal surface. Bulb of percussion with small scar, fair size striking platform with feint ripples. There is one main flake bed and three smaller ones on the dorsal surface and a small patch of cortex on the distal end. The flint appears to show signs of wear/ abrasion from being in the agricultural plough soil and there are a few small edge chips. This lithi…

A core rejuvenation flake from a core originally producing small blades, uncertain date, likely Mesolithic to early Bronze Age. 9000BC-1000BC. Description: The flake is sub-triangular in plan and cross section with a high pointed dorsal side. There is clear conchoidal rippling, bulbar scare and bulb of percussion indicating its production via hard hammer technology. The dorsal side has long thin removal possibly indicating production of Mesolithic blade microliths. Measurements: 55.54mm long, 35.59mm wide, 14.8mm thick and 26.63g in weight.

A hard hammered retouched lithic flake of uncertain date, likely Neoltihic to early Bronze Age Description: The flake is sub-rectangular in plan with significant conchoidal rippling from flake removals on both sides. There is short scaled abrupt retouch along the upper left side of the flint whcih continues along the left side of distal end (. This doesn't create a working edge and may have been shaping/ preparation retouch prior to the flakes removal. The ventral side has a significant bulb of percussion.

An unusually shaped lithic implement of late Neolithic ot Early Bronze Age date, c.3300-2200BC. Description: Object is formed from an irregularly secondary flake of dark dense flint. One side has been carefully worked into an arm with retouch described as invasive scaled semi-abrupt retouch. This retouch is all from one angle. Measurements: 82.74mm long, 61.05mm wide, 17.59mm thick and 53.99g in weight. Discussion: The exact use and age of this object is uncertain. The surface is quite for a flint and may instead be high density and high silica chert.

A flint hammerstone of uncertain prehistoric date. Description: It is roughly spherical and has extensive crushing across much of its surface with accidental removals along one face both indicating its use a hammerstone. Measurements: 77.38mm high, 73.6mm wide, 70.36mm thick and 625g in weight. Discussion: A hammerstone is a hard cobble or other stone used to strike off lithic flakes from a lump of tool stone during the process of lithic reduction. Dating of such object is difficult as they do not vary substantially over time. This example was found in an area with both extensive Pa…

An incomplete worn bifacially flaked flint handaxe probably of cordate form dating to the Lower Palaeolithic c.500,000-250,000 BC. Description: The handaxe is missing roughly half of its width. It is of ovate form, ovoid in plan. It has been bifacially worked, with flaking covering the entirety of the remaining side. Almost half of the the handaxe has come away leaving that side dished, this is evenly patinated which suggests the damaged happened in antiquity.

A probable core formed unfinished flint chisel of late Neolithic or early Bronze Age date c.4000-1000 BC. Description: The chisel sub-rectangular in shape and pointed oval in cross-section. It has been flaked to shape from a larger piece of flint by covering scaled semi-abrupt flaking. The tool has a hinge fracture at one end is pointed and triangular in plan with cortex still adhering across half of it.

A flint fabricator of uncertain date, possibly Mesolithic in age c. 9000BC-3300BC Description: The fabricator is formed from a thick ovoid heavily worked tertiary flake. with narrow sides. In cross-section the fabricator is triangular. Retouch on the ventral face is extensive and clearly defined being invasive scaled semi-abrupt. The bulb of percussion is relatively subtle compared with the retouch and may indicate the use of both soft and hard hammers in its production.The flint is heavily mottled grey-white through to some dark grey on the ventral side. Measurements: 68.16mm long, …

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A coarse flint scraper likely dating to the late Bronze Age or Iron age c.1000BC - 0BC . Description: The scraper was produced from a secondary flake, irregularly shaped, although with four sides. The flaking has left substle conchoidal ripples on both sides of the flint and a substantial bulb of percussion on the ventral face. The retouch is formed from short scaled semi-abrupt retouch from the ventral face through the cortex on one edge and scaled long semi-abrupt on the wide edge perpedicular to the cortex edge. This latter retouch may be intended to creat a boring point on the cor…

A coarse flint scraper likely dating to the late Bronze Age or Iron age c.1000BC - 0BC . Description: The scraper was produced from an ovoid secondary flake (indicated by the substantial light brown cortex remaining on the dorsal face). The flaking has left substle conchoidal ripples on both sides of the flint and a substantial bulb of percussion on the ventral face. The retouch is formed from short scaled semi-abrupt retouch from the ventral face through the cortex on the more evenly rounded edge. The flint is a dark blue-grey with some lighter mottling. Measurements: 35.93mm long, …

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete rounded flint scraper likely of Neolithic date (c.4000-2200 BC). Description: The scraper survives in an a irregular shape with a long rounded end and pointed recent break opposite. The flaking on the dorsal and the and conchoidal scarring (rippling) on the ventral face are very pronounced which suggest hard hammer technology. The majority of the edge has short, scaled semi-abrupt retouch struck from the dorsal face, save the long broken edge which is formed by a transverse hinge fracture. The flint is an opaque dark brown with mottled areas of lighter patches. Measur…

An incomplete rounded flint scraper likely of Neolithic date (c.4000-2200 BC). Description: The scraper survives in an irregular shape with a long rounded end and pointed recent break opposite. The dorsal face mostly covered in a light beige cortex, indicating the utilisation of a primary flake The flaking on the dorsal and the and conchoidal scarring (rippling) on the ventral face are very pronounced which suggest hard hammer technology. The majority of the edge has short, scaled semi-abrupt retouch struck from the dorsal face, where not broken and abraded which accounts for about 40…
