Record ID: SF8879
Object type: AXE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Small flint axe/chisel, with bifacial shallow flake scars and a tranchet cutting edge on one face. Black flint is visible where there is recent damage on the edges and at the butt, but otherwise it is patinated medium grey. Probably Mesolithic, as suggested by the tranchet edge, although the shallow cross-section could possibly suggest a Neolithic date.

Butt end of a chert axe or possibly adze of later Mesolithic to early Neolithic date, 6500-2900 BC. It is oval ion section and has part of an S-shaped curve in profile. The butt is rounded. The tool has been shaped by removal or large scalar flakes around the edge on both sides. Down the centre of one side is a large area of creamy cortex covering c.40% of the face. On the other some flakes have been removed in the centre, adjacent to the break. One at least appears to have been removed after the break or possibly as part of the break, it is not clear if damage to this area could be f…
