35 pieces of flint working debitage, probably Early Neolithic, c. 4,000-3,300BC, all made from the same, mid-grey, translucent flint. 19 pieces show tertiary flint working (second image) and 16 secondary flint working (first image) retaining some of the original cortex. The nature of this suggests the use of flint cobbles as raw material. The flints can be described as 'blade like flakes' which, with the use of a soft hammer, supports the Early Neolithic dating. Only one piece is recorticated, and possilby intrusive, the rest is clean and the assemblage appears homogeneous.

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…

A complete flint? polished axehead dating to the Neolithic period (c. 4000-2500 BC). The axe is in very good condition and is of high quality. The stone is a mottled light grey and mid brown colour. The axe has side facets and a thin butt. It has been polished all over and the cutting edge has been resharpened and re-polished in antiquity after being damaged. An area of damage on one side was caused by the finder hitting it with a pickaxe when it was discovered some c. 60 years ago. This is a very nice example of a Neolithic polished axe.
