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 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 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. …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A pyramidal shaped core dating to the Mesolithic period (6500 - 3500 BC). The core is triangular in profile and irregular in plan. A distinct knapping platform is present on the upper edge of the core with areas of multiple blade removals in a single direction around the edge. The small size of this core suggests that it was discarded as waste. There are areas of hinge fracturing near the base. The flint is a light grey colour. The core measures 25.4mm in length, 22.2mm width, is 20.6mm thick and weighs 14.63 grams.

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 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 possibly a Neolithic flint core. One side is 'ventral like' being flat and smooth but with no evidence of ripple, the other is 'dorsal' in form with some ripple and dorsal scarring. One side of the dorsal ridge is smooth, whilst the other has multiple fractures with no distinctive sign of retouch removal or the typical conchoidal scarring so often found with worked pieces. The 'dorsal' side also has cortex in situ to both ends and what might be seen as the proximal end, has a platform. There are two distinct miss-strike scars to the larger of the cortex faces. Directly b…

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…

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 …

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…
