Flint blade or knife flake, lozenge-shaped in plan and section and semi-circular in profile. The proximal end and lateral margins have been bifacially retouched. Towards the distal end of the dorsal face, running along the left edge, are the remains of a strip of cortex, suggesting that this is a secondary flake. The dorsal face preserves an area of smooth conchoidal fractures rippling away from the proximal end. The flint is a mottled light to dark gray colour, probably made from a local beach pebble, and the length to breadth ratio is about 2:1. Bond il…

Incomplete segment of a snapped flint blade of probable late Mesolithic date (6500BC - 3500BC). The flint tool is sub-rectangular in plan and sub-triangular in cross section. It measures 24.7mm length, 16.4mm width, is 6.3mm (max) thick and weighs 2.23 grams. The flint blade probably consists of the upper and central part of the blade and a trimmed bulb of percussion can be seen on the reverse face. The lower part of the blade has been snapped and trimmed or reworked. The two long vertical sides of the blade have received relatively little retouched. The densest area of retouch is at t…

Long worked flint blade dating to the Mesolithic period. The blade is mid-brown in colour and displays a double dorsal ridge. There is some fine retouch along the left dorsal edge. The left ventral edge also has some fine retouch in a localised area which has created a small semi-circular notch about a third of the way up the edge from the proximal end. The piece has been labelled by the finder and has a shiny fixative on the ventral face. The blade measures 60.1mm in length, 14.3mm in width and 6.86mm in thickness.

Blade Mesolithic Length 27mm, width 15mm thickness 3mm There are three arrises on the dorsal, one running down the centre and the other two running down either side. There is no evidence for retouch, some damage to the end of one of the side blades. The bulb of percussion is missing from the ventral although there are ripples emanating out from where the bulb was. Mid grey patina.

Blade Mesolithic Length 16mm, width 11mm thickness 4mm One arrises running down the centre. There are a number of flaks/nicks removed from the sides of the blades on either side, these are the result of perhaps use or later damage rather than retouch there are also two chips taken out from the top of the dorsal and two from the ventral. Bulb of percussion on the ventral very little evidence of radiating ripples. White patina with light grey mottling.

An incomplete struck / knapped blade, formed from a tertiary debitage flake, of probable Neolithic dating (c. 4,000 BC to c. 2, 350 BC). The probable blade has a sub triangular cross section, and is sub rectangular in shape. Retouch is present along one long sides (short, subparallel, semi-abrupt). The probable blade has been made from a piece of tertiary debitage. A bulb of percussion is present on the ventral surface. The flake has been made from a light grey flint, with little surface patination. Length: 28.4 mm Width: 14.7 mm Thickness: 4.3 mm Weight: 1.3 g

There are six triangular sectioned blades. They have been knapped from flint which is a variety of shades of brown. They weigh 4.47g. Their size and shape of the the other flakes and possible core suggest they are of a Mesolithic date.

168 Blades Late Mesolithic Length 38mm, 21mm wide 4mm thick to 15mm long, 10mm wide, 2 mm thick. The majority of theses flints have either one arise running down the middle or two arrises on either side of the blade, some of the blades show signs of retouch and a number of them have been blunted through use. There are a number of broken blades within this group. Most of the flints have a light grey patina and the rest an off white patina. These are part of a large assemblage of 511 flints.

21 notched backed blades Late Mesolithic The sizes range from 30mm long, 12mm wide, 3mm thick to 16mm by 11mm by 3mm. Most of the artefacts have one arise running down the centre, in some cases this divides in to two arrises halfway down the length of the blade. The remaining blades have two arriese running down their length. On all of the blades there is a semicircular recess knapped into the side of the blade (12mm long to 2mm long), half of backed blades are in the top third of the blade and on the other half it is halfway down. The patina of the fl…

9 saws/ serrated edge blades Late Mesolithic-Neolithic The sizes are 40mm long, 33mm wide, 11mm thick, to 25mm by 11mm by 4mm. The largest example (40mm long, 33mm wide, 11mm thick) probably dates to the Neolithic, of which there are multiple flake scars on the dorsal and ventral sides, there is a serrated edge on one side 24 mm long. All of the other artefacts are Late Mesolithic blade types, all have one dorsal running down the centre blade on both sides, one of which has had a series of small flakes removed in order to produce a serrated blade. most have…
