  • Thumbnail image of HAMP-D57282

Record ID: HAMP-D57282
Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: City of Southampton
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small tertiary flint flake, undiagnostic, and so given a general prehistoric date. It is of a grey brown colour, with some patinisation resulting in a lighter grey patch on both faces, and a darker surround on the dorsal face. There is some edge damage which is estimated to have occured in antiquity, but the flake is in otherwise good condition.

  • Thumbnail image of HAMP-FCA5B3

Record ID: HAMP-FCA5B3
Object type: PICK
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: City of Southampton
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint pick of Mesolithic (or early Neolithic) date, rolled and polished by water action. Both faces are bevelled, but one in a more definite triangular cross-section. There are removals all over the surface of the pick; no cortex is present. The butt is oblique while the cutting end is now rounded due to wear. Both longitudinal edges have been 'battered', a common feature on implements of this type. The light grey flint has become weathered, and in many areas has taken on yellow and orange hues from iron staining.

  • Thumbnail image of HAMP-5C1AE2

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.
