Record ID: HAMP-5C1AE2
Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: City of Southampton
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A small flint handaxe of stained flint dating to the Middle Palaeolithic. It is sub-triangular in form. The object has a shallow S-shaped profile. It is covered by removals on both faces; the ventral face is far more intensively worked with far smaller removals than the dorsal. The sides are somewhat battered, while the distal end is broadly straight (this is where the axe would have been held). The removals have been smoothed a little by water action. The ventral face is of a largely orange hue, while the dorsal features off-whites and more brown colours.
