Record ID: OXON-47D706
Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint retouched flake of Palaeolithic date. The flake has been made from a yellowy-beige flint using hard hammer percussion. The bulb and platform are visible along with some soft-hammer retouching along the left lateral edge. This piece is hard to date as its execution is generally undiagnostic, however it is potentially Palaeolithic (c. 450,000-10,000 BC).

A complete flint thumbnail scraper of late Neolithic to early Bronze Age date, c. 2400 BC - 2200 BC. The scraper has been made on a tertiary flake of a mottled dark brown flint, lighter at the edges where the flint is thinner. The scraper retains the platform and bulb of percussion. There is invasive retouching around both lateral edges and the distal surface, all of which is restricted to the dorsal side.

Object type: BARBED AND TANGED ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint barbed and tanged arrowhead of Sutton Type, 30.5mm in length and dating to the early to middle Bronze Age (2400 - 1000 BC). The arrowhead is bifacial worked from pale brown flint, with covering scaled low-angle retouch. The patina is pale grey suggesting prolonged deposition in a calcareous environment. One barb has broken away and there is recent damage to both long edges.

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Complete barbed and tanged arrow head of early Bronze Age date c.2200-1800 BC. The arrow head is of a light grey opaic flint of unpatinated dark grey flint with paler inclusions. It is ogival in plan and the face is covered by hammer struck retouch marks. The left-hand tang (when viewed from the dorsal face, point up) has been broken and reworked resulting in a minor discrepancy between barb lengths, or it is just difficulty with working a rather thick part of the initial flake blank. The point also appears to have been broken with no reworking. Length: 16.41mm, Width: 16.8mm, Thickn…

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A near-complete early Bronze Age barbed and tanged flint arrowhead, dating to the period c. 2200 - 1500 BC. The arrowhead has been made from a tertiary flake of light grey-blue flint now patinated to a cream colour with orange/brown iron staining. The tang and both barbs survive and retouch is evident of both the distal and dorsal surfaces. There is an area of damage to one side of the arrowhead, possibly caused through contact with another stone/ rock in the watery environment in which it was found.

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A barbed and tanged flint arrowhead of Early Bronze Age date. The arrowhead has been made from a tertiary flake and is sub-triangular in plan, having a central tang but retaining just one of its original two barbs.The tip also appears to have been broken and there is an area of damage one third of the way up one side. The piece is bifacially worked, the retouch being covering, scaled and low angle. The flint is a recorticated light grey to white, with a mottled blue surface in places. Measurements: 25.4mm long,16.7mm wide, 3.6mm thick, 1.15g.

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete flint axehead, possibly part of an unfinished roughout dating to the Neolithic period (c. 4000-2400 BC). The surviving piece is probably part of a broken blade end that is roughly oval in shape with a squared-off edge at the break. Most of the butt end appears to be missing. The surviving blade end is roughly lentoidal in cross-section with a convex curved blade that tapers roughly evenly in width to the blade edge. Neither the blade, edges nor surfaces have any evidence of polishing though there are several patches of cortex, especially towards the broken edge. The flint…

A complete flint knife of Neolithic date. The knife has been made on a secondary flake of a mottled brown flint, retaining cortex over maybe a quarter of the dorsal surface. It is broadly triangular in plan with a low trapezoidal section. The knife retains the prominent bulb and part of the platform. The flake on which the knife is made is slightly curved. Invasive, overlapping soft-hammer retouch extends the entire length of the left dorsal edge while the opposing right edge has a small area of retouch around the tip but is otherwise un-retouched. Some use and / or post-depositional d…
