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
Five pieces of small flint debitage of probably Neolithic date. All the flakes show primary and secondary working. Four flakes are burnt and the largest piece appears to be polished which may indicate a discarded flake from a larger reworked tool, such as an axe or knife. A Neolithic date 2900 - 1800 BC may be suggested as similar dated debitage and tools have been found in the immidiate vicinity. The pieces measure 1. 11.7mm length, 11mm width, is 2.32mm thick and weighs 0.23 grams. 2. 17mm length, 12mm width, is 6.75mm thick and weighs 1.43 grams. 3. 19.43mm length,…

Object type: CORE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Large flint core / primary flaked nodule of probable Neolithic date, The core is formed on a poor quality nodule of flint which has a large amount of cortex and dark grey coloured inclusions. The surface also has significant areas of multiple holes/depressions. The core has 2 primary bulbs of percussion and may have been discarded as being of too low grade for further working. A Neolithic date 2900 - 1800 BC may be suggested as similar dated debitage and tools have been found in the immidiate vicinity. The discovery of such large pieces of unworked / unprocessed flint is highly …

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small piece of tertiary flint debitage of either later Mesolithic or Neolithic date (6500-1800BC). The flake is very pale grey and has not been retouched to form a separate tool. It is possible that the flake is a small bladelet taken from a Mesolithic core - as all the working is in the same direction; although the piece is too small to be diagnostic. A Neolithic date 2900 - 1800 BC may be suggested as similar dated debitage and tools have been found in the immidiate vicinity. The flake measures 13.61mm length, 9.81mm width, is 2.04mm thick and weighs 0.26 grams.

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Powys

Two small flint Blades, The smaller flake is pale brown and shows primary working and small amount of indentines to the tip. The larger blade is pale grey and shows both primary and secondary retouching and may have been longer as there is a break width ways across the wider end. A Neolithic date 2900 - 1800 BC may be suggested as similar dated debitage and tools have been found in the immidiate vicinity. The small blade measures 12 x 9.76 x 1.75mm and weighs 0.22 gm. The large blade measures 24.48 x 12.1 x 3mm and weighs 0.75 gm

Flint flake of probable Neolithic date (3500 - 2500 BC), a waste flake - secondary debitage - of mid grey colour with small amount of white cortex on one face. There is no secondary retouching on any of the surfaces suggesting that this is a discarded flake - produced during knapping. The flake measures 33mm length, 14.1mm width, is 5.9 mm thick and weighs 3.4 grams.

Object type: THUMB NAIL SCRAPER
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Relatively small flint thumbnail scraper (side and end) of probable later Neolithic - Early Bronze Age (3000-1800 BC), The flint is a pale brown pink colour with small a amount of white cortex on the upper / dorsal surface. There are signs of retouching on the edges of three sides - this retouch is best described as short sub-parallel, and abrupt. The scraper appears to be highly polished that suggests that it is a reworked flake from a larger implement, possibly an axe head. The scraper measures 20mm length, 14.2mm width and 6.5mm thick; it weighs 2.10 grams

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A blade, possibly a burin / boring tool, formed on a mid grey coloured flint. The point of percussion is on the narrow pointed end. The ventral face shows signs of minor retouching on both the longer sides, the dorsal face has 1 central ridge and shallow angled sides with cortex remaining with retouching on the same faces as the ventral side plus tertiary retouching to the tip. This suggests it may be a combination blade / boring tool. The shape suggests that it may be the distal end of a larger blade but the patination on the sheared steep faced end would age the break to occuring in…

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A large scraper formed from a broad / wide blade knapped from a pale grey coloured flint . The ventral face shows a bulb of percussion and series of choncoidal ripples. The dorsal face has multiple flake facets / scars. Three of the sides have short abrupt retouching whilst the other has a shallower angled retouch. This suggests it may be a combination tool used for cutting and scraping. The large size of the tool may suggest a late Neolithic or early Bronze age date, this is also reflected in flints of these periods found in the nearby vicinity. The flake measures 51.39mm length, …

A small blade, possibley a burin / boring tool, formed on a pale grey coloured flint. The point of percussion is on the narrow pointed end. The dorsal face shows signs of retouching on one short side only, and has a small crested central ridge with shallow angled sides. This suggests it may be a combination blade / boring tool. Their is a good patination to the flint. The size and form of the tool suggests a later Mesolithic date - however it was found amongst a scatter of flints dating to the mid to late Neolithic date. The flint measures 35.5mm length, 22.71mm width, is 4.38mm…
