Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

Prehistoric, knapped or flaked, medium size, flint, waste flake or debitage. Sub-rectangular/oval irregular oval shaped, slightly plano-concave mottled pale grey/brown flint with a few white patches on the ventral surface. Bulb of percussion with small bulbar scar, there is a medium sized striking platform with feint ripples. There is one flake bed and a section of cortex on the distal end and one side of the dorsal surface. The flint appears to show some wear or abrasion from being in the agricultural or plough top soil and has a patinated surface. This lithic is likely to date to the…

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A very crude flint end scraper of probably Late Bronze Age to Early Iron Age date (c.1050-600 BC). One face is almost entirely covered with cortex and it has a plano-convex cross-section (the flat face without cortex). One short end of the convex face is worked with four long, parallel, semi-abrupt removals. The flint beneath the cortex is brown in colour and translucent at the edges. It measures 149.9x55.3x34.8mm and weighs 292g (to the nearest 2g).

Undatable Prehistoric (probably Bronze Age or early Iron Age, c.2100-600 BC) flint retouched secondary debitage with a concave dorsal face retaining 75% cortex. A projection at the proximal end has short, scaled semi-abrupt retouch to its dorsal outside edge and above this to the ventral face possible short scaled abrupt retouch to create a notch. The flint is grey-brown in colour with few patination spots and translucent at the thinner edges. The object measures 52.9mm in length, 40.1mm in width, 13.2mm in thickness and weighs 22.58g.

County: Warwickshire

Lithic implement, probably Early Neolithic, c 4,000-3,300 BC. A small piece of flint, mid-grey, opaque, with some surviving cortex, perhaps a core, with signs for flaking on both faces Two of the edges bear traces of heavy battering leaving a hackly surface. The flint may have been used as a strike-a-light but this is uncertain. An Early Neolithic date seems likely, supported by associated material. Length 32.9mm, Width 23.6mm, Thickness, 13.5mm, Mass 13.46g

Lithic implement, likely a scraper, of light grey flint. The item is roughly square shaped and trapezoidal in section. The ventral face features a prominent bulb of percussion, whilst the dorsal face shows flake removals across much of the surface. A removal along the distal edge (viewed dorsally) allow it to slop downward, ending in a sharp edge. There also appears to be a similar removal on the right edge, whilst the left side also slopes to a sharp edge. There appears to be some iron staining along parts of the arrises of the dorsal face. Dimensions: weight: 4.30g, length: 24.6mm,…

Triangular shaped flake point implement, made from a light grey flint. The flake tool has a distinct bulb of percussion on the ventral face. There is also small-scale semi-abrupt retouch along the proximal left edge (viewed ventrally). The flake curves slightly, so that the ventral face is concave. The dorsal face features three prominent flake scars. Two of which are found along either edge, and the third and more recent removal is triangular in shape and ends in a point which joins the central arris. Removals of this type are typically associated with levallois, or 'prepared core' r…

A Neolithic flint flake dating to the period c. 4000 - 2350 BC. A tertiary flake of dark grey flint frequent dark brown and light grey mottles. The dorsal surface has two flake scars. The distal end has been snapped off leaving a rough break. Between the distal and proximal end along one edge is a small area of short, scaled semi-abrupt retouch creating a small notch. The proximal end has a small striking platform and bulb of percussion. The flake measures 18.7mm in length, 13.4mm in width, is 3.6mm thick and weighs 0.83 grams.
