An incomplete flint Mesolithic tranchet axe or Neolithic flaked adze. It is trapezoidal in shape, expanding slightly towards the damaged end and roughly triangular in cross-section with a raised ridge running longitudinally down the centre of one face. There is a rough break across one end where a section is missing. There is invasive, scaled retouch on both faces, but this is less extensive on the flatter face. The flint is dark brown in colour with some orange staining and very little patination. A very small amount of cortex survives on both faces. Because of damage it cannot be ce…

A small damaged possible polished flint axehead. The object is sub-rectangular in plan and pointed oval in section. The head of the axe flares to the cutting edge, which curves outwards. The cutting edge is damaged with c. 40 % remaining and there is also an abrupt transverse break across the butt end. There are scratches on the surface on both sides of the axehead. Invasive retouch can be seen on the surface on each side, along the edges and across the blade end. This may suggest that the axe was modified at some point and possibly reused. The flint is a mid-grey in colour with patche…

A collection of two Mesolithic to Neolithic (c. 8000 - 2400 BC) flint core fragments. Core 1 is a small, and near exhausted, single platform conical flint core, probably dating to the Neolithic (c. 4000-2400 BC), although it could potentially be earlier. The core is of an orangey brown with with off-white patches. It is approximately conical in shape and a pointed oval in cross section. The striking platform has three flake removals taken horizontally to provide a flat and even striking surface.The flake taken from the outside edge of the core are elongate and parallel indicating blad…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age flint tool fragment possibly originally a knife. The tool is made from a of tertiary flake of flint. The flint is a light brownish grey colour with a medium grey colour closer to its centre which has off-white patches and inclusions. It has a semi-glossy patina. The tool has a convex dorsal surface but mostly flat ventral surface. The tool is approximately trapezoidal in plan with a curved long edge. Its distal end is a short flat edge that has been snapped truncating the tool. The remaining edges have long scaled semi-abrupt turning to low angled…

A Neolithic flint flake dating to the period c. 4000 - 2350 BC. A tertiary medium greying brown flint with occasional off white inclusions. The dorsal surface has three flake scars one of which appears to be in a different direction to the other two. On the right edge as seen from the dorsal surface, close to the distal end is a semi-circular notch and traces off occasional very short, semi-abrupt retotuch marks. This serves to accentuate the distal point of the flint and to soften the notch. The proximal end has been lost to a hinge fracture removing the bulb of percussion and striki…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint scraper, probably of Neolithic date, dating from about 4000 BC - 2200 BC. It is sub-triangular in shape and concavo-convex is cross section, it curves and tapers to a narrow rounded distal end. The ventral surface is concave with a small bulb of percussion situated at the proximal end with slight ripples. The dorsal side has flake scars and either long side have fine, short, abrupt, parallel retouch. The distal end has been knapped into a point with retouch on both the ventral and dorsal sides. The lithic retains a minor amount of cortex and is therefore a secondary flake. It is…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An assemblage of six end scrapers probably dating to the Neolithic period. Scraper 1 is a side and end scraper of possible Neolithic date (c.4000-2400 BC). The scraper is struck off a secondary flake on which is a very small portion of a thin chalky white cortex. The flint is a medium brown-grey colour with one large orange brown patch and smaller off similarly coloured inclusions. It has a glossy patina. The scraper is sub-rectangular. Both left and right mesal edges and the distal edge have sub-parallel, semi abrupt retouch on their dorsal face. These do not run the entire length of…
