Record ID: YORYM-55CCD4
Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete knapped lithic implement of late Neolithic to early Bronze Age date, circa 2700 BC - 1600 BC. The implement is a fragment of the proximal portion of a plano-convex knife formed from a tertiary flake which is D-shaped in plan and ovate in section. The ventral surface is largely flat though displaying some larger removals. The dorsal surface displays short, low angled, sub-parallel removals. The flint is a light blue/grey colour. The implement is 32.5mm long, 31.7mm wide, 10.1mm thick and weighs 5.9g.

Record ID: OXON-536F7E
Object type: PICK
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: West Berkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete worked flint pick of Neolithic date. The pick has been formed on a nodule of mottled grey/white flint with iron staining evident of the crests of the removals. The flint has been bifacially worked and a removal across the butt does look tranchet-like but on closer inspection this has been ruled out. The tip of the pick is has a large ridge behind it with multi-directional removals on the side of the tip. Suggested date Neolithic 4000-2000 BC.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete flint leaf shaped arrowhead. It is slightly ogival with a slightly rounded proximal end. It has some modern edge damage to one lower corner. One face shows invasive scaled, low-angle pressure flaking, with some of the original dorsal surface remaining. The other face shows covering scaled, low angle pressure flaking. The area of modern damage reveals the flint is opaque, mid-orangey brown, but is now almost completely covered in a smooth layer of blue-white mottled re-cortification giving a low-gloss patina. One face shows a patch of ferrous iron staining. Date: Early Neo…

County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete polished flint axehead. The butt is missing due to a flat break perpendicular to its long axis. The axe is rectangular, and has a rounded lozenge shaped section. The cutting edge is the same width as the mid section. The surface is finely polished and smooth. One flake from the surface has been removed along this axis, possibly to facilitate short term re-use.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A scraper of probable Neolithic date, 4000 - 2350 BC. The scraper is formed from a secondary flake, sub-ovate in plan and roughly concave in section. The flake is mottled grey in colour. There is a large amount of cortex remaining on the dorsal face with a few small flakes removed. There is extensive semi-abrupt, sub-parallel, invasive retouch to the right mesal. On the ventral face there is a low bulb of percussion made from a soft hammer blow. At the distil end the flake is pierced by a small hole, approximately 4mm by 3mm. This piercing is probably natural resulting from a small fos…

Grey flint, appearing brownish under transmitted light, discoidal knife. A thin oval flake of lentoid section bearing covering angled scalar retouch across both its sides.

Object type: SERRATED IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Neolithic knapped and retouched flint tertiary blade dating to c. 4000 - 2100 BC. The blade has a small platform and bulb of percussion at the proximal end and comes to a point at the distal end. There are very clear, almost v shaped, ripples of percussion across the lower half of the ventral face. Three are three earlier flake removals on the dorsal face indicate that similar blades were removed from the same core. On the ventral face there is significant short, sub-parallel and semi-abrupt retouch on the right side mesal edge creating notches with plain areas between. This deliberate…

Part of a probably Mesolithic flint blade, probably dating to the period c.9000-4000BC. It is a secondary piece with one small patch of pebble cortex surviving near its proximal end. The artefact is rectangular with a triangular cross section. The dorsal face has two negative blade scars from previous removal. One of the mesal edges have areas of chipping. There is a snap at the proximal end, thus removing the striking platform and bulb of percussion. The flint is a medium grey with areas of mottled white. The pebble cortex is a medium brown and orange colour. The lithic is 21.8mm lon…

A single flake of knapped flint of possible Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date. The object is a tertiary flake of medium grey flint with frequent mottled white and light brown inclusions.

County: North Somerset

Flint awl on a secondary flake that has one arise on the dorsal and a large bulb-of-percussion on the ventral. Retouch is present on the left which is short and semi-abrupt creating a concave scraper, flakes have been removed from the right sides but these appear to be edge damage rather than retouch. Further retouch is found on the forward edge consisting of low, inverse flake removal creating a awl point. Very dark grey flint with lighter grey patches, 30% cortex to the rear. The record has been generated from an emailed images supplied by the finder.

A flint scraper of probable Bronze Age date, circa 2700-1600 BC. The flint is a secondary flint with a very small amount of cortex remaining at the distil end. The flake is sub-ovate in plan and plano-concave in section. There is scale flaking and semi-abrupt, sub-parallel retouch to the left mesal. The flake is pale grey in colour with pale inclusions. A flake has been removed from the ventral face, which makes the flint easy to handle by the thumb. There is a large striking platform at the proximal end. Length: 22.3mm, Width: 28.4mm, Thickness:10.2mm. Weight: 6.8g.
