Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Published Find published
This object is a Mode 2: Acheulian handaxe of the Lower Palaeolithic. Mode 2 tools being worked symmetrically on both sides indicating greater care in the production of the final tool. The axe is a pointed oval shape and bifacially worked. It is made from a grey cream mottled flint, now patinated with orange/ochre. All the edges are clearly worked and there appears to be a small section of cortex (or an inclusion) on the centre of one face. The smooth polished surface of the axe is the result of having been abraded over the millennia. It has the classic gravel staining of having been …

Object type: BARBED AND TANGED ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete Early Bronze Age barbed and tanged flint arrowhead. This arrowhead has been knapped from a uniform grey coloured piece of flint. The arrowhead is broadly sub-triangular in plan and lentoid in cross section. It has been knapped using a number of different techniques, including direct and indirect percussion, as well as pressure / ripple / invasive flaking. It is unsymmetrical in shape with one barb being lost. The break is old and patinated suggesting damaged in antiquity. Both the long sides of the arrowhead have been retouched to create sharp edges - this retouch is best…

Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete leaf shaped arrowhead dating to the early Neolithic period, (circa 3500-2500 BC). The arrowhead is lozenge (pointed oval) in shape and lentoid in cross section. The dorsal and ventral faces of the arrowhead have been extensively and delicately worked with neat well-formed pressure / ripple flakes. There are no visible signs of use. The flint is a poor quality mottled pale grey colour with fine orange veins passing through it. The selection of the flint with this distinctive vein could represent a deliberate aesthetic choice. This example fits well with leaf shaped arrowheads…

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small flint waste flake / debitage probably dating from the Neolithic period (3500 - 2100 BC). The flake is broadly sub-triangular in both plan and profile. It has number of regular facets (caused by flaking) on the upper (dorsal) face of the flake. There is no evidence of cortex (the rough outer skin of the flint nodule) present on either face. This suggests that this flake comes from the tertiary phase of tool production. On one edge is a smooth rounded bevel. This has been created by wear, rather than flaking, and suggests that this piece of debitage is in fact from the re-working o…

Fragment from the butt of a flint knife of probable Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2500 - 1500 BC). The fragment is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and cross section. It measures 31.3mm length, 30.4mm width, is 4.7mm thick and weighs 3.57 grams. The fragment is relatively thin and broken across its widest edge. It consists of the butt of a relatively fine and well made knife or dagger. Both faces exhibit areas of very fine pressure flaking and the edges also show evidence of retouch. It is possible that the flake has been reworked after breaking and used as a form of blad…

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Four struck or knapped snapped blades of later Mesolithic date (6500-3500 BC). All four blades vary in size and shape. However, all are sub-rectangular in plan and sub-triangular in cross section. Most of the blades consist of a bulb of percussion and all show conchoidal fractures. One piece (the light pink coloured blade) is formed from chert and is much coarser in matrix than the others. One blade (the smallest of the group) has blunt retouch along one side, creating a serrated edge. Another (with the point) has been retouched from the point to half way along the edge, creating a cur…

Small waste blade, core trimming flake, of late Mesolithic date (6500-3500 BC). The blade has a small area of cortex on the outer edge and shows several distinct facets where previous blades have been removed. There is no retouch present. It is a mid- grey colour with a slightly milky whit coloured patina. It measures 21.4mm length, 10mm width is 4.4mm thick and weighs 0.99 grams

Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Multi faceted core which has been worked in several directions from opposing striking platforms to produce small blades or microliths of late Mesolithic date (6500-3500 BC).. The core is probably derived from a riverine pebble and a small area of outer cortex is present on one face. Two striking platforms are present from which blades have been removed, one of these has a series of hinge fractures associated with it and it is suggested that this may be the older face. It seems that the core has not been rejuvenated and instead blades have been taken in a separate direction. The cor…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Large piece of raw flint / chert like material from which a series of blades and flakes have been removed. It is not a traditional core and is likely to represent a piece of raw material rather than waste. From the style of working it would suggest an early Neolithic date (c. 3500-2500 BC), with relatively large blade like flakes being removed. There are several areas of cortex present and this is abraded in nature suggesting a riverine or glacial source. The matrix of the flint is relatively coarse and it is possible that it is chert rather than true flint. It is a mid grey black col…

Four tertiary waste flakes / debitage of Neolithic or early Bronze Age date (2900 – 1800 BC). All the flakes are irregular in plan and profile with a series of varying sized flake facets present on the outer (dorsal) faces. All have clear bulbs of percussion and conchoidal fractures. There is no evidence of reworking or secondary flaking present making this material relatively rare in not being reworked. All the flints are patinated and slightly white / milky surface colour. They have combined weight of 12.57 grams 1. Measures 26.4mm length, 22.4mm width is 6.9mm thick and weighs…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint end scraper of probable Neolithic (2900 - 2100 BC). The scraper has been formed from a tertiary waste flake / debitage and is broadly rectangular in plan and cross section. It measures 27.5mm length, 17.9mm width, is 4.2mm thick and weighs 1.89 grams. Evidence for retouch or secondary working can be seen only on the wide end edge of the flake. This reworking is limited to hard (abrupt) hammering to form a crude serrated edge. This is the only area of retouch present and suggests that the flake was selected to create a tool with a relatively limited lifespan (the length of one…

Possible reworked flint projectile point (arrowhead) of later Neolithic date (2900 - 2100 BC). The projectile point has been formed from a tertiary waste flake / debitage and is broadly triangular in plan and cross section.

Flint ‘thumbnail’ scraper of probable Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2500 - 1500 BC). The flint flake is broad and squat being broadly oval in plan and sub-rectangular (D shaped) in cross section. It measures 20.8mm length, 19mm width, is 9mm thick and weighs 3.98 grams. Evidence for retouch or secondary working can be seen on the two sides and the front end / edge of the flake; these facets are small neat and regular. The right hand edge and tip have been worked more intensively than the left. The reverse face (ventral) has not been worked. It is likely that this scr…
