Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey-green [appearing toffee coloured under transmitted light] flint, possibly collected from the East Coast, plano-convex knife. A thick crescentic flake of plano-convex section with invasive angled scalar retouch along the dorsal side following its curving edge. The ventral surface is effectively flat with a bulb at one end. A crisply defined flat back to the blade is probably an original feature enabling pressure to be brought to bear on its cutting edge, as is a matching flat terminal at one end of the blade. Suggested date: Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age, 2700-1600 BC. Length…

Flint possible debitage. Four small irregular flakes, all with flakes struck from their dorsal sides; three retains elements of a bulbar ventral surface while the fourth and longest has a tiny bulb at one end of a concave ventral surface. A dense creamy patina suggests all have endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment after their deposition. The finder kindly notes the absence of naturally occurring flint in the vicinity, which has encouraged the consideration of these pieces.

Flint with reformed cortex possible scraper. A long irregular flake with a broad flake struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb at one end of a gently undulating ventral surface. Cortex has reformed over a rounded end, where possible scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect also appears. The opposite end is lightly battered. A dense creamy patina overall suggests the object has endured long exposure to a calcareous environment; orange spots might suggest its incorporation in gravel.

Flint with cortex spot probable scraper. An irregular flake with broad and narrow flakes trimmed from its dorsal side and with a bulb on its undulating ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect forms a hollow on one long edge - the smaller of two on the same side; both hollows might have been used to trim shafts.

Grey flint with cortex debitage. A triangular chunk with broad and narrow flakes struck from its dorsal side and with an unevenly broken ventral surface. The marks of battering appear along two arises and at its narrower end. The flint was [?]subsequently lightly burnt, resulting in crazing which appears only on the struck surfaces. The flint retains a grey tint, in contrast to most of the heavily patinated assemblage it was reported with, which may hint at its subsequent inclusion in a sealed and non-calcareous context.

Flint with cortex core. A rounded nodule fragment with broad and narrow parallel flakes struck from it by probably unidirectional working, though with cortex retained on a remaining curved surface. The aris between the struck surfaces and the angled striking platform is battered, suggesting the core was put to some other use as a pounding tool before it was discarded. The struck surfaces bear dense creamy patina, suggesting the object has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment after its final deposition. Iron spots may also suggest its incorporation in gravel. Suggested…

Pale grey flint debitage. A flake with long parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a concave ventral surface. A light misty patina has formed over all surfaces, though this is significantly less dense than that observed on most of the similar material recovered and reported from the same location at the same time, arising from exposure to a calcareous environment. The post-depositional experience of this object differs from that of much of the rest; the removal of patina from this example has arisen from adventitious damage.

Flint with cortex strip probable core fragment. A large chunk with long parallel flakes removed by initially unidirectional working from a flat striking platform. Though the form may have initially have been, or intended to be, pyramidal; either casual working or damage has left the larger part of the surface unevenly shattered. A dense creamy patina over all struck surfaces suggests the object has subsequently endured long exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC.

Burnt flint scraper fragment. A fragment with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by hard hammer and with a bulbar ventral surface. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect appears to have followed a curved edge. Heavy battering has also left multiply layered spalls on the opposite end. The putative working surface is broken at either end, and fine crazing is carried throughout the object, which is now a pale grey tint overall. This discarded tool has obviously fetched up in an intense fire. Suggested date: Early Bronze age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 37.8mm, Wid…

Grey flint with cortex debitage fragment.

Brown translucent flint with cortex strip, lithic implement. A thin flake with broad and narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, and with a prominent bulb on its ventral surface. The cortex strip is opposite a curving cutting edge with short scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect following it, suggesting a function as a backed blade. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect also trims the cortex itself, possibly to produce a very finely serrated implement.

Flint possible backed blade. An oval flake with broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, a near-flat ventral surface, and a narrow long flake struck from along one edge of the ventral surface which may have permitted pressure to be exerted on the putative cutting edge opposite. The scalloped or serrated appearance of the cutting edge is perhaps a result of fortuitous edge-on impacts, albeit occuring in antiquity. A dense creamy patina overall suggests the object has subsequently endured a prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC

Flint adze fragment. A sub-triangular chunk of broad lentoid section with, initially, two broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by hard hammer strike, and with an uneven ventral surface. Covering angled scalar retouch was carried across the dorsal surface, and a few comparable drafts appear on the ventral side. Broken at its broader end, probably recently. Patches of iron staining appear on the worked surfaces. The surface overall is a dull buff tint, possibly a deep patina arising from prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment.

Pale grey flint possible borer. Triangular flake with invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect, and with a bulb on its undulating ventral surface. The appearance of serrated edges may arise from fortuitous edge-on impacts, but the form appears to be deliberately tapered towards a point [now lost] Creamy patina suggests a period of exposure to a calcareous environment, while orange spots - more frequent than on the accompanying material - may suggest it subsequently became incorporated in gravel.
