Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A late Mesolithic flint bladelet dating to the period c. 7000 - 4001 BC. The bladelet is sub-rectangular in plan with a slight curve along the length of the blade and a diagonal flaw across both sides of the blade. The dorsal surface exhibits three negative flake removal scars with two smaller negative flake removal scars which terminate at the diagonal flaw. The ventral surface retains a small bulb of percussion, indicating manufacture by soft-hammer striking. The flint is mottled mid - light grey in colour. There is some evidence of short, abrupt, scaled retouch along both sides.

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint possible side-and-end scraper of Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date (c. 4000 - 1600 BC). The scraper is struck off a tertiary flake and displays no remaining cortex, although there are off-white inclusions. The dorsal surface exhibits one negative flake scar at a right angle to the striking platform, indicating that the flake may have been struck off a multiple platform core. The scraper exhibits short scaled semi-abrupt retouch along the mesal and distal edges. The other mesel edge does not exhibit any retouch and appears to have been broken off. The scraper exhibits a large …

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A late neolithic or early Bronze Age ground flint axe made from a mottled grey flint which has patinated ochre. The axe is complete save for modern flake damage on one edge and possibly also on the butt. The blade of the axe has been ground to a smooth surface although on one side the flake scars are too deep to exhibit much of the ground surface. The axe measures 129.71mm by 60.89mm and is 60.89mm thick. The thinness of the axe suggests that it could be influenced by contemporary metal axes.
