Object type: ADZE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Neolithic flint adze. The adze has one convex worked side with the other side being flatter (but also worked). The tool is oval shaped in plan (and semi-circular in section) with the working end widening slightly. The other narrower end of the adze would have been hafted into a wooden handle and it would have functioned as a heavy-duty tool for cutting trees and woodworking. The adze weighs 159.95g and measures 118.5mm in length, 46mm in width and 27mm in thickness.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Neolithic thumb scraper, with evidence of retouch. The striking platform has been removed, but the bulb of percussion and ripples survives. Numerous blade flakes have been removed from both surfaces. The tool has had multiple flakes removed from the surface, forming medium arrises. The flint has a number of flaws within its structure and so may have been discarded for this reason.
