  • Thumbnail image of HESH-6881B7

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…

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…

Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Multi faceted core which has been worked in several directions from opposing striking platforms to produce small blades or microliths of late Mesolithic date (6500-3500 BC).. The core is probably derived from a riverine pebble and a small area of outer cortex is present on one face. Two striking platforms are present from which blades have been removed, one of these has a series of hinge fractures associated with it and it is suggested that this may be the older face. It seems that the core has not been rejuvenated and instead blades have been taken in a separate direction. The cor…

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

Flint end scraper of probable Neolithic (2900 - 2100 BC). The scraper has been formed from a tertiary waste flake / debitage and is broadly rectangular in plan and cross section. It measures 27.5mm length, 17.9mm width, is 4.2mm thick and weighs 1.89 grams. Evidence for retouch or secondary working can be seen only on the wide 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 create a tool with a relatively limited lifespan (the length of one…

Flint ‘thumbnail’ scraper of probable Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2500 - 1500 BC). The flint flake is broad and squat being broadly oval in plan and sub-rectangular (D shaped) in cross section. It measures 20.8mm length, 19mm width, is 9mm thick and weighs 3.98 grams. Evidence for retouch or secondary working can be seen on the two sides and the front end / edge of the flake; these facets are small neat and regular. The right hand edge and tip have been worked more intensively than the left. The reverse face (ventral) has not been worked. It is likely that this scr…

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…

County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

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…

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…

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 piece of flint debitage that has some of the characteristics of having been struck by man, perhaps Neolithic in origin. That it has been struck by man is supported by a probable bulb of percussion to one side with dorsal scarring where previous material has been struck off the core. Additionally, there is the characteristic rippling, indicative of its removal from a core, by force. The material is of a dark brown colour.

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 …
