Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A beautiful and well preserved example of a flint knife, dating from the Bronze Age. The knife measures 63.4 mm long, 23 mm wide, and is lozengiform in section. The artefact is bi-faced, with fine invasive retouch on both the dorsal and ventral surfaces. The fine workmanship was achieved by pressure flaking, probably using a bone or antler tool. The flint itself is of a mottled grey colour. The quality of craftsmanship implies that this artefact dates to the earlier Bronze Age, as there is evidence that there is a decline in technical competency throughout the Bronze Age (Bond 'Guide t…

A probable flint knife of Neolithic or early Bronze Age date. The flake is incomplete although it is possible that it was snapped deliberately. There is no cortex on what remains. The surviving portion measures 57.6mm by 24.6mm by 5mm and weighs 7.8g. It has broken along its longitudinal axis, leaving what is probably just less than half of the original flake, judging by how much of the striking platform and bulb of percussion are present. The surviving lateral edge has been retouched on both surfaces. The retouch on the dorsal surface is irregular, short to medium and low-angle. There…

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…

Tertiary flint blade with retouch and usewear. The blade is thick with an arched dorsal back. Both ends have been snapped, posibly deliberately, and the bulb of percussion removed, the percussion waves are not visible. On the dorsal face one half of the left edge has blunting retouch which is scaled, invasive and abrupt. The right edge has small chips lost from both faces, consistant with usewear; there is a large chip removed from one end of that right edge, probably deliberately but where as part of the tool shaping or the snapping of the ends it not clear. The use of a thick blade s…

Complete and almost undamaged flint knife dating from the Early or Middle Bronze Age, i.e. c. 2100-1500BC. The object is thick-bodied and was probably produced from a larger secondary flake, which has been invasively flaked on ventral surface (probably later damage). Some waves/ripples and bulb scars still visible on ventral surface. Approximately 20 percent cortex remains on the dorsal surface. The short cutting edge (opposite the butt) has been retouched several times and looks used/worked with several areas of abrasion and very small retouch. There are further retouch marks along t…

Knapped flint knife, probably dating from the later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age, i.e. ca. 2500-2150BC. The knife is almost intact with almost none of the cortext remaining and working marks on all surfaces. It was made from dark brown mainly non-translucent flint and shows a medium-sized retouch around the lower edge. The flint knife has suffered some later damaged, espeically around the edges with some smaller chunks of blade missing. There are also some internal cracks, again espeically around the edges, where they can be easily seen close to the surface through the more upper tran…

A complete Mesolithic to Neolithic knife. The light grey translucent flint is covered with cortex on the left half of the dorsal face. There is a notch on the lower right side of the dorsal face created with scaled semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral face has neat scaled retouch along the upper part of the left side and some occasional retouch on the right edge. The length is 41.9mm, the width is 15.4mm, the thickness is 5.4mm and the weight is 3.73g.

A large flint knife, probably of Neolithic date. The thin tongue shaped flake is of an opaque creamy white flint. The dorsal face has several arises and has retouch on the right edge and the ventral face has a very small bulb of percussion. The knife may be incomplete as one edge is very straight and may have been snapped. The length is 38.6mm, the width is 25.9mm, the maximum thickness is 5.0mm and the weight is 5.25g.
