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

This is a particularly interesting example of a tertiary lithic tool, or interior flake, lacking as it does any sign of the cortex. The material is opaque mottled pale cream and has a fine microcrystalline structure with apparent mineral inclusions; the surface has the waxy lustre of chalcedony. The ventral surface exhibits a delaminated or, exfoliation area which may be the result of a fault within the structure of the material. It has a longitudinal length of approximately 2.5 times its width and may thus be considered a ‘blade’. Due to the relative 'bluntness' of the back s…

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…

This is a fine example of a lithic tool with a well defined blade in the ‘backed knife’ style. The material is a mottled tan flint, probably Neolithic in origin. It may reasonably be considered a blade/knife due to a cutting edge length, more than three times its width. From the proximal end, there is a clear bulb of percussion with undulating percussion ripples from the bulb, running down the ventral surface to the feather termination at the distal end. The cutting surface has a length of 5.75mm and there is a conchoidal fracture to the back edge. The dorsal surface is marke…

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…

Small 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 lower part of a blade. 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 triangulate worked flint blade of Neolithic origin (3500-2100BC). The ventral surface has a small bulb of percussion with faint trace of the percussion ripples across the surface. The dorsal side has a single lateral edge/dorsal ridge, running the length of the blade with dorsal scarring along much of its length. The cutting edge is formed on the slightly convex side with direct parallel retouch, some of which looks to have been damaged through the passage of time. The material is a multi coloured (pale cream/brown/red) and partly translucent flint with numerous inclusions of ferr…

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…

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.

This is a lithic blade of Neolithic origin. There is a diffuse bulb of percussion at the proximal end with limited undulating ripple. The dorsal surface has a prominent ridge that bisects into two ridges, approximately halfway down the length of the blade and running to the distal edge The edges have original sub-parallel retouch but then have what might be considered as ‘new’ retouch at some later date that cuts through the pale cream surface of the original work. However, it is entirely possible that the ‘new’ retouch is simply damage from its long life in the soil. The …

A small flint blade, possibly a fragment of a larger blade. It is perhaps Neolithic in origin, coming as it does, from the Walton Basin in Wales. The bulb of percussion has been removed and there are signs of re-work to the adjacent edges. The dorsal surface has a single ridge/lateral edge which divides into 2 as it extends to the upper edge in the photograph. The ventral surface has percussion ripples along with edge fissures at one end. The material is a pale cream flint with several minute inclusions with a larger pale inclusion that terminates with a dark edge on the dorsal ridg…

A lithic flake/implement of probable Neolithic origin. This artefact has the look of a blade, with the remnants of a diffuse bulb of percussion and the conventional dorsal/ventral surfaces. The dorsal surface has a number of negative scars from earlier removal with fissures and abundant concoidal scarring to both long edges. The long edges are, however, quite steep and there is also retouch on the ventral surface at the distal end. The material is a dark brown/grey flint with numerous inclusions of both darker and lighter material.

Snapped flint blade, probably dating to the later Mesolithic or early Neolithic periods (6500-2900 BC). The blade is sub-rectangular in plan with a series of four blade facets on the upper dorsal face. The ventral face shows evidence off conchoidal ripples but there is no evidence of the bulb of percussion. The upper and lower edges have both been snapped. There is little evidence of retouch; it is possible that there is direct percussion flaking along one edge, although this can be produced by plough roll. The blade measures: 15.7mm length, 15.5mm width is 2.8mm thick and weighs …

Flint blade, probably dating to the later Mesolithic or early Neolithic periods (6500-2900 BC). The blade is sub-rectangular in plan with a series of multiple blade facets on the upper dorsal face. The ventral face shows evidence off conchoidal ripples and the bulb of percussion. There is little evidence of retouch; it is possible that there is slight reworking on the ventral face where four parallel flakes have been removed to sharpen a small area. The blade measures: 40.8mm length, 19.1mm width is 7.4mm thick and weighs 3.5 grams

Two flint blades, probably dating to the later Mesolithic or early Neolithic periods (6500 BC to 2900 BC). Both blades are sub-rectangular in plan, with a triangular cross section. There are multiple small flint facets down the external edges of each probable blade. One of the flint blade is broken. The ventral (lower) surfaces demonstrate a bulb of percussion and conchoidal ripples. The dorsal (upper) surfaces demonstrate a central ridge. The broken flint blade demonstrates signs of retouching down the external edge. There is a small amount of cortex (outer rind) present on each blad…
