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…

Small snapped blade of probable later Mesolithic date (6500-3500 BC). The blade is irregular and possibly is a core rejuvenation flake. The blade consists a clear faceted striking platform on one edge, below which a series of flake scars are present on the dorsal face. The upper scar on the dorsal face is irregular, possibly due to a flaw in the flint. The lower two scar facets represent the removal of blades in an opposite direction (probably with the core being worked in a direction of 180 degree to the striking platform present on this flake. The reverse (ventral) face has several a…

Segment of a snapped flint blade of probable late Mesolithic date (6500BC - 3500BC). The flint tool is sub-rectangular in plan and profile and consists of the upper part of a blade. It measures ??? length, ??? width, and is ??? thick. The blade weighs ???. The bulb of percussion is clear on the reverse of the flake; the opposite end has been snapped. The two long vertical sides of the blade have both been reworked / retouched. This is most evident on the middle and upper edges. The left hand edge seems to have been reworked more comprehensively than the right; there is a higher density…

It measures ??? length, ??? width, and is ??? thick. The blade weighs ???. The bulb of percussion has been snapped off, and this end has been roughly trimmed. The opposite end has also been trimmed, but this has been achieved by more careful knapping. The left hand long vertical side has been reworked. There are also a number of scars on the blade presumably caused by damage in the plough soil. …

A pyramidal shaped core dating to the Mesolithic period (6500 - 3500 BC). The core is triangular in profile and irregular in plan. A distinct knapping platform is present on the upper edge of the core with areas of multiple blade removals in a single direction around the edge. The small size of this core suggests that it was discarded as waste. There are areas of hinge fracturing near the base. The flint is a light grey colour. The core measures 25.4mm in length, 22.2mm width, is 20.6mm thick and weighs 14.63 grams.

Small snapped coarse flint or chert blade or bladelet of later Mesolithic date (6000BC - 3500BC). It has been struck from a core and has the generic crested appearance. The blade is snapped and shows no sign of retouch on either tip or long edges. The underside / ventral face shows conchoidal rippling. The blades measure 19.3mm length, 11.5mm width, is 2.5mm thick and weighs 0.53 grams.

Six pieces of struck flint; at least three of which suggest tertiary waste from tool making. The other three exhibit irregular flake scars and hinge fractures which might suggest natural frost damage rather than working. One flake is burnt; all flakes are low grade flint common in tool assemblages from the marches. The worked flakes can be broadly dated to the Late Mesolithic or Neolithic tool making tradition c.4500 – 2500 BC. Bulk Weight: 42.75 grams

Four pieces of struck flint. It is difficult to suggest that these are waste from tool production due to the lack of regular worked edges present. However, they are from the same site which has produced flint of Mesolithic and Neolithic date and may represent tertiary debitage. Bulk Weight: 26.67 grams

Snapped knapped flint blade of probable later Mesolithic or earlier Neolithic date (6500 – 3500 BC). The flint is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and lentoid in cross section. The ventral (reverse) face has a distinct bulb of percussion and conchoidal fractures which have been broken across loosing the striking platform and heel of the flake. The dorsal face show several flake scars. There is a abrupt retouch to the long edges on the dorsal face which is evenly spaced and creates a relatively regular scraping edge. The flint is a black colour with a series of flaws and different colo…

Two tertiary waste flakes / debitage of flint dating to the later Mesolithic – later Neolithic periods (4500 – 2200 BC). Both the flakes are relatively large having irregular uncontrolled broken edges. However, much of the dorsal and ventral surface of both artefacts has regular evenly spaced knapped facets. There is no evidence of reworking or secondary flaking present. These flakes are clear evidence of flint knapping at this site. Both the pieces of flint are patinated. They have combined weight of 11.23 grams 1. Measures 30.6mm length, 27.7mm width is 9.4mm thick and weighs…

Snapped knapped flint blade of probable later Mesolithic (6500 – 4500 BC). The flint is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and lentoid in cross section. The bulb of percussion is lost. The dorsal face show several long flake scars. The long edges and the blunt end have been heavily reworked with relatively neat and regular facets.
