Object type: GUNFLINT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
This is a flint piece from a post medieval flintlock musket or pistol. The piece has the typical oblong form with a chisel edge. The long sides have been re-touched and shaped with numerous conchoidal scars to form the straight edges. These flints were in use from the early 17th century into the early 19th century. The material is a mid brown flint with sparse dark inclusions.

Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Published Find published
This object is a Mode 2: Acheulian handaxe of the Lower Palaeolithic. Mode 2 tools being worked symmetrically on both sides indicating greater care in the production of the final tool. The axe is a pointed oval shape and bifacially worked. It is made from a grey cream mottled flint, now patinated with orange/ochre. All the edges are clearly worked and there appears to be a small section of cortex (or an inclusion) on the centre of one face. The smooth polished surface of the axe is the result of having been abraded over the millennia. It has the classic gravel staining of having been …

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small flint waste flake / debitage probably dating from the Neolithic period (3500 - 2100 BC). The flake is broadly sub-triangular in both plan and profile. It has number of regular facets (caused by flaking) on the upper (dorsal) face of the flake. There is no evidence of cortex (the rough outer skin of the flint nodule) present on either face. This suggests that this flake comes from the tertiary phase of tool production. On one edge is a smooth rounded bevel. This has been created by wear, rather than flaking, and suggests that this piece of debitage is in fact from the re-working o…

Fragment from the butt of a flint knife of probable Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2500 - 1500 BC). The fragment is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and cross section. It measures 31.3mm length, 30.4mm width, is 4.7mm thick and weighs 3.57 grams. The fragment is relatively thin and broken across its widest edge. It consists of the butt of a relatively fine and well made knife or dagger. Both faces exhibit areas of very fine pressure flaking and the edges also show evidence of retouch. It is possible that the flake has been reworked after breaking and used as a form of blad…

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Large piece of raw flint / chert like material from which a series of blades and flakes have been removed. It is not a traditional core and is likely to represent a piece of raw material rather than waste. From the style of working it would suggest an early Neolithic date (c. 3500-2500 BC), with relatively large blade like flakes being removed. There are several areas of cortex present and this is abraded in nature suggesting a riverine or glacial source. The matrix of the flint is relatively coarse and it is possible that it is chert rather than true flint. It is a mid grey black col…

Flint end scraper of probable Neolithic (2900 - 2100 BC). The scraper has been formed from a tertiary waste flake / debitage and is broadly rectangular in plan and cross section. It measures 27.5mm length, 17.9mm width, is 4.2mm thick and weighs 1.89 grams. Evidence for retouch or secondary working can be seen only on the wide end edge of the flake. This reworking is limited to hard (abrupt) hammering to form a crude serrated edge. This is the only area of retouch present and suggests that the flake was selected to create a tool with a relatively limited lifespan (the length of one…

Flint ‘thumbnail’ scraper of probable Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2500 - 1500 BC). The flint flake is broad and squat being broadly oval in plan and sub-rectangular (D shaped) in cross section. It measures 20.8mm length, 19mm width, is 9mm thick and weighs 3.98 grams. Evidence for retouch or secondary working can be seen on the two sides and the front end / edge of the flake; these facets are small neat and regular. The right hand edge and tip have been worked more intensively than the left. The reverse face (ventral) has not been worked. It is likely that this scr…

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
This is a particularly interesting example of a tertiary lithic tool, or interior flake, lacking as it does any sign of the cortex. The material is opaque mottled pale cream and has a fine microcrystalline structure with apparent mineral inclusions; the surface has the waxy lustre of chalcedony. The ventral surface exhibits a delaminated or, exfoliation area which may be the result of a fault within the structure of the material. It has a longitudinal length of approximately 2.5 times its width and may thus be considered a ‘blade’. Due to the relative 'bluntness' of the back s…

Small irregular piece of flint debitage, probably dating to the Earlier Neolithic period. (3500-2700 BC). The piece of flint is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and profile. There are no areas of cortex present – this suggests that the waste comes from the tertiary (or final phase) of tool making. This is substantiated by the large amount of flaking on dorsal face, when compared to the ventral. The ventral face has a distinct bulb of percussion. The dorsal face has at least eight scars on it, from at least three different directions. This would suggest that this flake was produced tow…

Flint scatter reported anonymously to CPAT. The majority came from this location with single flakes also being recovered from SO19642491 and SO19742491. The assemblage includes a barbed and tanged arrowhead measuring 22mm x 20mm found on 17 August 2002, the rest (some 18 pieces) were found during 2003, all the flints have a brown patina and at least 2 have cortex remaining. From the finder's/reporter's photograph the assemblage appears to contain at least one thumbnail scraper, possibly a second and possible pointed borers and/or utilised flakes

Two fragments of tertiary waste flakes / debitage. Both flakes show evidence of knapping in several directions; neither is a tool or exhibit retouch to any face. The presence of these two flakes suggests tool making on this site – or close by during the Neolithic period 3500-2100 BC. The two flakes have a bulk weight of 1.31 grams

Large flake of tertiary debitage which has been burnt in a fire. The flaking suggest a Neolithic date (c. 3500-2100 BC). The flake is irregular in plan and broadly sub-rectangular in cross section, evidence for flaking is present and it is possible that one small area of the dorsal face has been reworked as small relatively neat facets are present. If this were used as a tool it is likely it was produced ad hoc and discarded once a short lived task had been formed. The reworking has been applied to a crescent and it is possible that the flake was used for scraping, possibly something l…
