Flint flake which is irregular in shape. Both the bulb of percussion and ripples are visible. Large chips have been broken from the edges and it has not been retouched. It has been struck irregularly with a very hard blow, and this along with the 'crushed' edges indicates that the flake may have been struck in modern times. It has a smooth mid-grey patina.

Complete flint blade of probable later Mesolithic date (6500BC - 3500BC). The flint tool is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and cross section. It is much thicker than most blades and the two long edges taper to a blunted point. The bulb of percussion is lost. The two long sides and the lower end of the blade have been retouched / reworked. The retouch is extensive on both long edges where both pressure and direct knapping have been used. The tip is sharpened with retouch in two directions and the butt end is also trimmed with small shallow flakes being removed. A slight notch is …

Flint implement dating from the Mesolithic to the Neolithic period, (8300BC-2100BC). The object is sub-oval in plan and D-shaped in cross section. On one face of the object the cortex remains. The opposite face is covered in irregular facets. The pebble has been split in two, the force of which has probably caused the irregular breaks. It is however possible that the object was also utilised as a tool. The object is toffee brown in colour.

Small thumbnail scraper dating to the early Bronze Age, (2150-1500BC). The object is a pointed oval in plan and D-shaped in cross-section. The dorsal side has been worked and contains many facet and ridges. The outer edges have been retouched on each side of the implement. One half of the ventral side is flat and smooth while the other has been worked also. Bi-facial working is unusual for thumbnail scrapers so it was possibly being converted into another object such as an arrowhead also. The object is a clear, light brown in colour with a grey tip.

Object type: ADZE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A polished flint Duggleby Adze of Neolithic date. The object has convex cutting edge and a rounded narrower end. Both ends of the adze have been made into a blade edge.
