A Mesolithic (probably) flint flake (8,300-4,500BC). The flake is a secondary flake with approximately 10% cortex remaining on the dorsal surface. Also on the dorsal surface there are two flake removal scars. Fine retouch has been worked unifacially from the dorsal surface 11.19mm along the right edge starting at the tip. The retouch may have extended further but damage has removed a section of the edge. The butt is also damaged and the bulb of percussion is no longer present. Orange brown flint with an opaque white patina beginning to form on the ventral surface. Dimensions: …

Two Mesolithic (c.8300-3500 BC) flint implements. The larger flake, on the right in the photograph, is the retouched tip of a blade implement that has been broken at some point in the past. The flint measures 20.28mm in length, 16.97mm in width, is 3.51mm thick and weighs 1.56g. The smaller flake, on the left in the photograph, is a 'piercer'. There is evidence of retouching along the edges. It has been formed from a flake that was primarily a bladelet blank. The flint measures 15.71mm in length, is 13.66mm wide, has a thickness of 2.8mm and weighs 0.71g.

A Prehistoric flint flake (probably Mesolithic – Neolithic 8,300-2,100BC). The flake is tertiary with no cortex remaining.

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A late Mesolithic / late Neolithic horseshoe-type scraper made on a secondary flake. The retouch is restricted to the dorsal surface and the flint is a blue-grey in colour, suggesting a chalk-downland / clay-with-flints source. Modern plough damage has removed part of the nose of the scraper. This scraper may date more closely to the late Mesolithic / early Neolithic period, and measures 48.05mm long, 26.99mm wide and 9.80mm thick. It weighs 14.4gms.

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A large end and side scraper made on a secondary flake, possibly showing some recortication. The flint is grey in colour with patches of white, suggesting a local (chalk downland) source. The retouch is restricted mostly to the dorsal surface, while a small area at the distal end has suffered recent damage. The size of this tool suggests it may have been hafted and may date from the Mesolithic (8,300BC) to early Neolithic (c.3,500BC) periods. The scraper measures 67.97mm long, 46.90mm wide and is 10.23mm thick. It weighs 42.2gms.

A possible 'thumbnail' type scraper, made from a pebble rather than from a flint nodule core. There is the suggestion of some limited retouch on the tip on both sides. The patina on this object is even all over and a possible Mesolithic date is suggested. The scraper measures 33.19mm long, 27.47mm wide and its thickness ranges from 5.90mm to 13.25mm. It weighs 11.5gms.
