  • Thumbnail image of WILT-3DA7A1

Record ID: WILT-3DA7A1
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
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: BARBED AND TANGED ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A barbed and tanged flint arrowhead, dating from the Early Bronze Age. The arrowhead has been made from a secondary flake-small patches of cortex remain-and is sub-triangular, the two notches cut into the bottom edge creating a central tang and two inward-curving barbs. The piece is bifacially worked, the retouch being covering, scaled and low angle. The flint is mid grey with a mottled blue surface in places. Length: 28.9mm; width: 24.6mm; thickness: 4.5mm.

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint gunflint dating to the post-medieval period. The gunflint is rectangular in plan and trapezoidal in section with broad flakes removed from the dorsal side and with short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect trimming its edges. Flintlock guns were in use in France by c. AD 1600 and it is likely that this example dates from c. AD 1650 - 1850.

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A frgament from a Neolithic polished flint axehead dating from c.4000-2100 BC. Polished axes are very labour intensive and are thought to have held high value during this period. Polished axes were traded throughout Britain and Western Europe. In this example only the tip survives. The flint is covered in thick white patina suggesting a chalk downland source. It measures 43.79mm long, 42.43mm wide and is 22.84mm thick. It weighs 39.8 gms.

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A collection debitage consisting of 24 bladelets dating to the Mesolithic period (10,000-4001 BC). They are in varying sizes and varying stages of preperation. They are broadly rectangular in plan with a trapezoidal cross section., although the less-fine examples have a triangular cross section. All of the bladelets are on a mottled blue-grey flint many with a white patina forming. Seceral examples are in the early stage of preperation, retaining a small area of cortex. The pieces vary in soze from 33.5mm long x 14.4mm wide down to 16.4mm long x 7.2mm wide.

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A collection of 48 flint debitage pieces (bladelet material) of varying size, shape and colour, dating from the Mesolithic to early Neolithic period (c. 10,000 - 3501 BC). The collection consists of mainly blade or bladelet shaped pieces and flakes with a few broken blades and small chips. Most of the bladelets have a triangular cross section. None are reworked. The flint material is generally a blue-grey with white or grey patina. Cortex survives on about 25% of the pieces. These objects are part of a larger collection from what appears to be a multiphase site.

Two flint scrapers, probably dating from the late Neolithic to the Bronze Age. Both scrapers are made on tertiary flakes and have steep soft hammer retouching at the dorsal distal end and down laterals. Both of these tools have been damaged post-deposition and are missing portions. The colour of the flint varies from a light to mottled grey brown. These objects are part of a larger collection from what appears to be a multiphase site.

Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Four bladelet cores dating to the Mesolithic period (c. 10,000-4,000 BC). Three out of the four cores appear complete; one has suffered post-depositional damage. The three complete examples all have flat platforms and multiple single direction bladelet removals. The cores are worked in such a way as to create a cone-shaped core. The removals are long and thin, producing bladelets that could be fashioned into other tools, such as microliths. Three out of the four cores, including the damaged one, have some element of cortex remaining. These objects are part of a larger collection fr…

An irregularly shaped multiplatform flint core of probable Neolithic date. The core retains a very small area of cortext (c. 10%). The colour of the flint is a mottled light to mid grey. There are definately two platforms visible, however removals seem to have been made from other places too as there are several multi-directional removals over the surfaces. C. 4000-2350 BC). This object is part of a larger collection from what appears to be a multiphase site.

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A fragment of a flint knife of later Neolithic date (c. 2700-2350 BC). The fragment is the tip of the knife, which would have been plano-convex in section. Parallel soft hammer retouch is restricted to the left lateral of the dorsal surface. The knife has been made on a tertiary flake of grey-brown flint. This object is part of a larger collection from what appears to be a multiphase site.
