Flint scatter reported anonymously to CPAT. The majority came from this location with single flakes also being recovered from SO19642491 and SO19742491. The assemblage includes a barbed and tanged arrowhead measuring 22mm x 20mm found on 17 August 2002, the rest (some 18 pieces) were found during 2003, all the flints have a brown patina and at least 2 have cortex remaining. From the finder's/reporter's photograph the assemblage appears to contain at least one thumbnail scraper, possibly a second and possible pointed borers and/or utilised flakes

A small fragment of flint that has evidence of having been worked by man, probably during the Neolithic. It may be a fragment of a larger implement. The ventral side has clear ripples running away from the now broken edge. On close inspection, the 'point' (partly missing) has good parallel bifacial re-touch. The dorsal surface is marked by lighter and slightly coarser inclusions to one side running the length of the artefact. The material is a light brown flint.

This is a worked piece of flint, probably Neolithic in date. It seems probable that the bulb of percussion has been worked away by steeply re-touched bulbar scarring that has produced a marked point, perhaps intended as an awl? This work may have been a secondary use of the piece. The cross sectional shape is that of a lozenge and it is bi-facially worked with many conchoidal fractures to both of the long sides. It is also probable that the artefact originally terminated in a sharp point, now broken. As to use, it is possible that it is an awl or piercer that has broken and then …

This flint object has the characteristics of a Neolithic knapped tool, probably an edge scraper. The proximal end has a small percussion platform, a percussion bulb and a single bulbar scar with fine radiating fissures running down the ventral side. In side view, the tool has a distinct conchoidal curve, from where it has been struck from the core. There is no evidence of rippling on the ventral surface. The dorsal side has two distinct lateral edges, evidence of earlier flint removal from the core when this piece was still in situ. There is some dorsal scarring. There appear to…

This flint object is probably a truncated Neolithic blade. When you run a finger tip up the ventral surface, there is a diffuse yet distinct bulbar scar, indicating the distal end. The dorsal surface has a single distinct lateral edge. There is little sign of any re-touch however, there is on close examination, some edge feathering and adjacent conchoidal scarring (nibbling?) present on the edge at the probable break point. Perhaps we have the remains of a once longer blade. That edge which remains has a length of 25.8mm. The material is a pale to mid brown flint with a single p…

This is most probably the remains of a thumbnail scraper from the Neolithic period. There is some remaining evidence of a platform at the proximal end. The dorsal surface carries several ridges and negative scars. The ventral surface shows limited evidence of a diffuse bulbar scar. One edge appears to have been re-touched but due to the poor quality of the flint this is not definite. The material is dark brown with small light grey inclusions throughout. There is one very small piece of surviving cortex.

This is a lithic blade and most probably Neolithic in origin. As the length of this artefact is more than twice the width, with the sides more or less parallel, it may logically be called a blade. Typical of lithic blades, the cross section is triangulate. In side profile the blade has a slightly crescentic form. There is a clear bulb of percussion, at the proximal end of the ventral surface with associated but minimal ripples down the ventral face. The dorsal surface has a pronounced dorsal ridge and scars with a concoidal fracture that has removed a portion of the ridge, at th…

This is a small worked flake forming a double side scraper, probably of Neolithic origin. The ventral surface is marked by a distinct bulb of percussion and the resultant 'ripple' effect running to the distal end. There is a fragment of cortex remaining on the proximal end. The dorsal surface has pronounced divergent dorsal scar with an area of percussion ripple from previous removal. This implement has two distinct retouched sides, one being convex and the other, straight. Both edges have 'normal' retouch at an angle to the ventral surface of about 60 deg. Close examination …

This is a probable Neolithic flint scraper. The ventral side has a very clear bulb of percussion with a pronounced cone emanating from the point of percussion on the striking platform. Ripples then radiate across the whole ventral surface. The ventral side also exhibits direct normal retouch down both left and right edges. The dorsal surface has a number of negative/percussion scars at the proximal end with a single dorsal ridge running diagonally down to the distal edge. The left edge has some conchoidal scarring with evidence of alternate retouch. The distal edge appears fea…

Large irregular much weather nodule of flint, probably used as a raw (although poor quality) flint source for making artefacts in the prehistoric period. The outer edge is covered with cortex (at least 60%) which seems to be derived from chalk. The flake scars present are uncontrolled and this would suggest that this piece comes from one end of a nodule which has been discarded due to its poor state. The noule measures 83.9mm length, 63.3mm width is 4.1mm thick and weighs 184.64 grams.

A long thin lithic implement, probably a proto awl of Mesolithic to Neolithic date (4000 - 3000 BC). It does demonstrate some uncontrolled fractures, probably due to movement in the soil. The flint is a light grey with patches of white running through. It may have suffered some patination due to soil conditions. It is roughly triangular in shape, narrowing to a point. Little evidence of retouch is present along the edges of the tool. It measures 46.33mm length, 18.11mm width, 9.71mm thick and weighs 6.0 grams.

An assemblage of 8 struck or burnt flints collected from the same field. It comprises: the distal ends of two thin blades (incl. i), of triangular cross-section in pale grey and pale grey/brown flint, a flake (ii) with a bulb of percussion on the ventral surface and a single ridge down the dorsal surface, of triangular cross-section but thicker than a blade, in mottled dark grey flint, a scraper (iii) with a bulb of percussion and scarring on the ventral surface with a small section of cortex and retouch at the distal end forming a convex scraping edge…

A knife or scraper made from a flint flake of roughly triangular cross-section. It has a small bulb of percussion beneath the striking platform and the proximal end appears to have been worked to form the curved part of the cutting/scraping edge. It also appears to have been left with a sharp point. The ventral surface is gently undulating. The dorsal surface has a predominant ridge with dorsal scarring to one side. The convex cutting/scraping edge has evenly spaced parallel re-touch. The material appears to be a pale grey and brown banded flint.

A struck flint flake of probable Neolithic date, with characteristics of both a scraper and a blade. This artefact exhibits a good striking platform, beneath which there is a clear bulb of percussion and subsequent ripples on the ventral surface. The dorsal side has a single dorsal ridge with some scarring to the proximal end. Both long edges have possible evidence of slight retouch. The material is of a mid grey/brown flint with coarse inclusions or fossils.

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 complete flint discoidal knife of Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (3500 BC - 1500 BC. Length 109.0mm, width 86.0mm and 17.0mm thick. Weight 188.12g. The implement, a large discoidal knife, is sub-oval in plan and lentoid in transverse cross-section. It is made of flint which is grey patinated and the flaking covers the whole of each face. The edges of each shorter side have been finely polished. The implement is undamaged and was found on the surface. It is in a remarkably good condition. A similar implement, although slightly smaller and having a length of about 92.0mm,…
