Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: West Berkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Lower Palaeolithic flint cordate handaxe. It has a trimmed butt, rounded point and a straight edge. Wymer Type J. Evidence from the Lower Thames Valley suggests this type belongs to the later part of the Middle Acheulian Culture (Wymer 1968:56-57). There is a small area of cortex present on one side and the other side has a milky patina. Weight: 400g approx., Length: 161mm

Upper Palaeolithic to probable Mesolithic (40,000BC-6,500BC) flint bladelet struck from a single platform core. The edges have been retouched but modern crushing damage has prevented further observations. The flint is light brown to mid grey in colour. The bladelet measures 45mm in length, is 20mm wide and 3mm in thickness.

The broken tip from a large flint 'long blade' implement. The flint is pale grey-blue in colour. The artefact has been provisionally dated to the final upper palaeolithic period (40,000 - 8,300 BC) although based on the tip of the blade alone this cannot be confirmed. The artefact measures 33.84mm long by 17.62mm wide, is 3.55mm thick and weighs 2.16g.

Undiagnostic struck flint flakes often referred to as debitage. These finds represent waste flakes created during the knapping process and none could be dated with any degree of confidence although the suggestion was made that the white flint flake (top left in the photograph) is typical of the palaeolithic period. The overall weight of this group is 47.20g and comprises of 9 individual pieces.

A Prehistoric worked flint flake (500,000 - 1,500BC). Dark grey/ brown flint with no patina. This is a primary flake with approximately 45% cortex remaining. There is a small area of retouch (length: 15.77mm), on the ventral surface on one side. Also there is some modern damage that has removed the butt and some of the cortex. The appearance of the flake is very 'fresh' with excellent preservation of the retouch. Dimensions: length: 37.26mm; width: 51.35mm; thickness: 6.41mm; weight: 12.49g.

A Prehistoric flint ‘pounder’ (500,000 – 800BC). This is a flint nodule where two flakes were removed to create the platform. From this platform several small flakes have been removed at a steep angle. The flint is not good quality. Around the edges there is damage caused by using the tool to strike something repeatedly. This is human use rather than accidental damage. Approximately 80% of the cortex remaining. Dark grey flint with some opaque patination. Dimensions: length: 118.01mm; width: 73.83mm; thickness: 62.73mm; weight: 533g.
