A conical flint core with a single striking platform from which run long narrow parallel blade removal scars. One side of the core appears to have been lost in antiquity leaving a flat, unworked face. The colour of the flint is dark brown with a white patina resulting from prolonged deposition in calcareous sediments. Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC.

A conical flint core with a single striking platform from which run long narrow parallel blade removal scars. The colour is dark brown to light brown suggesting the flint may have come from a nodule deposited within iron-rich gravels. There is little in the way of a weathering patina suggesting a limited period of exposure. Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC.

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…

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.

A flint core of Mesolithic to early Neolithic date. The object is conical with one platform at the top of the object and parallel striking down one face. Ripples are visible where one flake has been removed and at least four blades. On the opposite face an area of cortex remains to the side of which the core is a mottled blueish-white and yellow colour due to discolouration from the soil. Where the tools have been removed the flint core is a dark brownish grey colour. Dimensions: 73mm in length, 45mm in width, 22mm thick, 98.6g in weight

A flint multi-platform core. The core has two faces and up to four platforms. One set of flakes may be to set up a platform. Thin, worn cortex remains on a rounded lower area of the core. One face shows well defined small blade flake scars or bladelets. The flint is opaque, dark mottled grey with beige areas of less silacious flint and has a mid gloss patina.

A flint core fragment of probably late Neolithic to early Bronze Age date, about 3300 BC - 1000 BC. It is formed on patinated flint, a tertiary chunk. It is a complex core, broadly oval in plan and cross-section. There are previous removal scars on all faces, with most blade removals struck from two platforms opposite to each other, but other flakes struck from other directions. The products appear to have been a mixture of broad flakes and small blades. The core is 53.5mm long, 29.1mm wide and 28.2mm thick. 37g.

Multiple negative scars from blade removal are present over one curved surface of the core. The flint is a light grey colour. The implement is 28.8mm long, 28.9mm wide, 21.6mm thick and weighs 15g. This is a relatively small core, suggesting it could have been carried around and maintained for continued use to produce small blades as required over time.

A crude blade fashioned from a core. The flint is dark grey, with some blue/grey patination. From a single striking platform two blade scars extend, with a third just to the side; the central scar ends in an abrupt break where the cortex has stopped the removal, possibly the outcome that inspired the removal of the blade; however, the thick scar along one edge makes it very comfortable to hold, with a still-sharp cutting surface opposite. The reverse side shows a clear bulb of percussion and has exposed an area of weakness in the flint at the bottom of the removal. It measures 60mm in…

Small core, of unpatinated dark grey flint with thin, worn cortex to the back or unworked portion. Made from a cylindrical projection from a larger nodule, the platform is formed by a hard hammer transverse blow across the projection (or "pap" or knob cf. Skertchley 1879 fig. 2 page 7), thin blade-like flakes are also hard hammer struck from the platform angles that will allow flake removals until a flaw in the flint and the small size of the core limited the striking of more useful flakes. Late Prehistoric, Neolithic or Bronze Age. 4,000 to 700 BC.

A bipolar core with two striking platforms at opposing ends, made on a crudely flaked flint nodule fragment. The flint is opaque and originally light grey, however most of the object is now covered in a smooth, thin mid-gloss patina with areas of heavy reddish brown ferrous staining, mainly on the flake scar ridges. Two small areas of nodular cortex remain. Broad flake scars and more linear blade flakes scars are visible around all sides, many showing hinge fractures. Date: Neolithic 4000 BC - 2350 BC Dimensions: 57.2 mm x 43.7mm Weight: 122 g

A fragment from a flint core of indeterminate form, probably dating to the Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age, (c. 2700-1600 BC) The core is of a dark mid grey flint with mottled white inclusions and brown striations but is otherwise glossy. It retains its reddish orange cortex on one of its larger surface. No striking platform is now visible on the core. Instead it has fractured around a natural imperfection at the centre of the core containing quartz crystals. This damage makes it hard to identify the form and date of the core. However, several visible removal flakes can be identif…

A single platform flint core, probably dating to the Neolithic to Early Bronze Age, (c. 4000-1600 cal BC), although it could potentially be earlier. The core is of a dark mid brownish grey flint with mottled white inclusions and retains its orange cortex on one surface. It is sub-rectangular in shape and sub-oval in cross section. The striking platform has been knapped horizontally to provide a flat but angled striking surface. The edge of this striking platform also shows evidence of abrasion to provide additional control to the knapping process. Four and possibly five large flint b…
