Record ID: HESH-6881B7
Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

A lithic artefact with the characteristics of a double sided scraper or knife, probably of Neolithic - Early Bronze Age origin. The ventral surface is concave and has an indistinct bulb of percussion at the pointed (proximal) end with the consequential and characteristic ripple pattern running away to the distal end. The artefact has been shaped using a uni-facial invasive retouch that covers the most of the dorsal surface, the untouched area of this surface retaining cortex. One edge of the scraper is convex and the other straight. Both edges have evidence of normal re-touch, wit…

This is a particularly fine Neolithic-Early Bronze Age scraper or knife. The proximal end has a clear platform and a bulb of percussion that ends abruptly, in a step fracture, co-incident with a banded inclusion. The ventral surface is then marked by the typical ripple effect running away from the scar. The implement is further refined in having both a convex and a straight/slightly concave working edge. The convex edge is marked by parallel and sub-parallel retouch and has a cutting edge of 60mm. The concave/straight side is 26mm in length and has alternating parallel retouch gi…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An Early to Middle Neolithic knife knapped from a mid-brown coloured flint dating to circa 4000 - 3500 BC. The flint object is D shaped in plan and is knapped from a secondary flake. The dorsal face has been re-worked on the straight edge from the proximal to distal end. The retouch is long, stepped and semi-abrupt. The opposing long edge has cortex present covering 50% that would have enabled the flint to be handled and used as a knife. The other 50% of the long edge has a 'backed edge' with abrupt retouch. The distal end on the dorsal face has been knapped to form a point. The ventr…
