Record ID: SWYOR-328703
Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Kirklees
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Neolithic polished flint axe. The axe is 152.2mm long, 62.6mm wide and 28mm thick. It weighs 338g. The axe is a tapering sub-rectangular shape and is ovoid in section with a flat facet at each end of the oval. The curved cutting edge is in good condition but there is some damage to the narrow end and a little of the end is missing. The damage at the haft end appears to be post depositional, but is not very recent, as the break is patinated. The axe patination in general is variable, the variations in colour being difference in patination rather than differences in the stone. The axe…

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Kirklees
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint worked flake of Neolithic date (4300-2100 BC). The dorsal surface is concave with multiple negative scars and two predominant arrises. A small amount of cortex is retained at the distal end making this a secondary flake. All edged contain semi-abrupt retouch and the lithic tapers to a point at the distal end. The ventral surface is smooth and convex due to a large bulb of percussion at the proximal end. The flint is a mid grey with cream inclusions throughout. The cortex is a mid grey in colour.

County: Kirklees
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint awl dating from the Mesolithic or Neolithic period (8300 BC - 2100 BC). The awl is sub-rectangular in plan with a straight profile. It is made on a flake of opaque, mottled, light grey flint. The flake has been heavily worked on the dorsal face at the distal end to form a sharp point which projects upwards at just over a ninety degree angle from the dorsal face. This point is the awl.

County: Kirklees
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint microlith probably dating from the Late Mesolithic period (6500 BC - 3500 BC). The tool is of sub-rectangular plan with a triangular section. There is one high ridge running along the dorsal face. It is made on a blade of patinated white flint. The microlith does not have obvious retouch but seems to have been deliberately shaped. It could be a rod microlith.

A flint lithic implement; a utilised flake which is probably a blank for a scraper dating from the Mesolithic or Neolithic period, about 9000 BC - 2200 BC. The flint is patinated and is a mottled cream colour. It is sub-rectangular with a rounded proximal end and snapped distal end. It is sub-triangular in section. It is tertiary with opaque inclusions on the right side. There are blade removals on the left side of the dorsal face and some removals at the proximal end which are probable platform preparation.

A flint Lithic implement; a multi-function tool combining a borer and a knife, of uncertain date, probably early Mesolithic to late Neolithic date (10000 BC-2200 BC). It is formed on honey coloured flint with cortex on the right proximal dorsal face, and is patinated to naer white. It is an elongated, sub triangular curved shaped in plan with a point at the distal end, and is sub triangular in section. It is a secondary flake with invasive, scaled, low angle retouch on the right hand side of the dorsal face at the distal end. An abrupt removal across the point creates the borer. There…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Kirklees
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An exhausted sub cuboid flint core of Mesolithic or Neolithic date, possible Early Neolithic, dating from about 4000 BC - 3300 BC.

A piece of flint debitage; an unworked flint flake of unknown date. The flint is white and is opaque, being thickly patinated. It is irregular in plan, sub-lozenge shaped and sub-rectangular in section. It is recorded because it is from an area where there is no naturally occuring flint, but it may be a naturally fractured piece rather than true debitage, being the waste material from flint working. It is 28.7mm long, 16.4mm wide, 3.6mm thick and weighs 1.6g.

A probable flint burin, of Mesolithic date, about 9,000 BC - 4000 BC. It is formed from a tertiary flint flake which is not patinated.
