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…

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…

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. It measures 26.5mm length, 15.8mm width, is 3.1mm thick and weighs 1.17 grams. Evidence for retouch or secondary working is limited and can be seen only on the pointed 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 cr…

Small irregular piece of flint debitage, probably dating to the Earlier Neolithic period. (3500-2700 BC). The piece of flint is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and profile. There are no areas of cortex present – this suggests that the waste comes from the tertiary (or final phase) of tool making. This is substantiated by the large amount of flaking on dorsal face, when compared to the ventral. The ventral face has a distinct bulb of percussion. The dorsal face has at least eight scars on it, from at least three different directions. This would suggest that this flake was produced tow…

Two fragments of tertiary waste flakes / debitage. Both flakes show evidence of knapping in several directions; neither is a tool or exhibit retouch to any face. The presence of these two flakes suggests tool making on this site – or close by during the Neolithic period 3500-2100 BC. The two flakes have a bulk weight of 1.31 grams

Large flake of tertiary debitage which has been burnt in a fire. The flaking suggest a Neolithic date (c. 3500-2100 BC). The flake is irregular in plan and broadly sub-rectangular in cross section, evidence for flaking is present and it is possible that one small area of the dorsal face has been reworked as small relatively neat facets are present. If this were used as a tool it is likely it was produced ad hoc and discarded once a short lived task had been formed. The reworking has been applied to a crescent and it is possible that the flake was used for scraping, possibly something l…

Seven flakes of tertiary debitage (from the third / final phase of tool making) of Neolithic date (3500-2100 BC). The flakes are all struck on poor quality flint which varies in coarseness and colour, all being glacial or riverine derived, some possibly being chert rather than flint. None of the waste flakes have been reworked / retouched to form other artefacts such as scrapers. The dorsal faces of some of the flakes show ridges and flake scars, the reverse faces show conchoidal ripples. The flakes have a bulk weight of 34.67 grams

This is a small assemblage of three secondary/tertiary pieces of probable Neolithic flint debitage. The total weight of this collection is 18.6g and the largest piece measures 48x29.4x14mm. The material is a hard, dark to light brown flint with lighter, small inclusions. The larger piece has some remaining cortex. All three pieces have conchoidal scars and a number of facets but with no sign of further working. The area of finds is within the well known Neolithic landscape of the Walton Basin and this assemblage is one of five recent assorted debitage and tool finds from this area.

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

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…

This is a small assemblage of five pieces of secondary and tertiary flint debitage, probably of Neolithic origin, from the Walton Basin. This find consists of five pieces of debris - three of flint and two of what would appear to be chert. One piece, Cc, has considerable surface crazing indicative of exposure to fire.The total weight of this assemblage is 12.1g and the largest piece (Ca) in chert, measures 31x14.3x11.7 and has a bi-colour cream/grey surface with numerous small dark brown inclusions.

This is a large assemblage of twenty pieces of secondary/tertiary Neolithic flint debitage from the Walton Basin. This collection has a total weight of 34g and consists of mainly flint debris, chips and a few flakes, with a mix of chert. The colours vary from a pale cream to a dark brown and most have small inclusions and or, colour banding within the material. One small piece (Na) has remnants of the cortex in situ.

This is a collection of eight pieces of secondary/tertiary Neolithic flint debitage from the Walton Basin. The total weight of the collection is 14.5g with the largest piece (Ea) measuring 44.1x21.5x5.9mm. That piece has the look of a blade and there is some evidence, albeit weak, of a bulb of percussion and ‘in ground’ damage or just possibly, reworking of to one edge. This assemblage consists of flint and chert with colours varying from dark brown to a shade of orange each with small inclusions or colour banding.
