Record ID: SWYOR-F0EC63
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Oldham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A waste flake of flint. The flake is 60.6mm long, 18.3mm wide and 7.2mm thick. The flake is a tertiary flake which is curved. There is some edge damage on the flake but it does not appear to have been further worked. It is counted as debitage – the waste flakes produced during the production of a tool. The flake has a slight patina and is opaque. It is grey with white inclusions. It probably dates from the Neolithic period. Small chips of white quartz were also found in the area.

Record ID: SWYOR-F16BC8
Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Oldham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint Early Neolithic Leaf arrowhead. The arrowhead is 26.5mm long, 18mm wide and 3.2m thick. It is a leaf shaped ogival arrowhead. It is bifacially worked and invasively retouched with scalar retouch. This would have taken much time and skill. The arrowhead would have been functional but may have been made for ceremony or show (Butler, 2005, Prehistoric Flintwork). The flint is mid brown in colour and is lightly patinated. Small chips of white quartz were also found in the area.
