Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A leaf-shaped arrowhead formed on a mottled grey coloured coarse flint or possibly chert of probable Neolithic date (2900 - 2150 BC). The arrowhead is lentoid (sub-rectangular) in plan and lentoid in cross section. Both faces of the arrowhead have been pressure (ripple) flaked with a series of small neat narrow facets. Much of this rippled surface has been flaked with much skill (especially given the poor nature of the flint). Both long edges exhibit areas of secondary flaking or retouch and has been applied to both faces . Beneath the ripple flaking older transverse thinning scars ar…

A leaf arrowhead, dark grey and brown in colour, which has been bi-facially retouched and is a formalised tool Both lateral margins of the dorsal face exhibit continuous retouch of low angle which borders on invasive and possesses a scaled morphology. This retouch is repeated on the ventral face. The tool appears to have been snapped at the left margin and proximal end intersect on the dorsal face. Butler (2005) illustrates a similar example on p133, Fig 5.119, F36 which dates to the Early Neolithic.

Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A thin lenticular section bifacially worked piece of cream flecked grey brown flint. Pressure flaking has covered both sides with flake scars. The plan has bilateral symmetry with a transverse snap.The edge is nearly straight and the arrowhead may have snapped in use or at very close to completion whilist trying to remove a long flake. The pointed end is missing leaving the base of what would have been a pair shaped leaf arrowhead. Other leafs and transverse types are found nearby.

Early Neolithic Leaf shaped Arrowhead. Invasive retouch dorsal ansd ventral sides. Semi-abrupt retouch ventral side. Bulb of percussion visible. Dark Grey flint. Notch on right mesial, possibly from later damage. Dr Kevin Leahy feels some concern over the section of this object and believes that it might be better seen as a knife.

A thin lenticular section bifacially worked leaf-shaped arrowhead of cream flecked grey-brown flint. Pressure flaking has partly covered both sides with flake scars. However a lot of the ventral side of the flake blank remains as do some of a pair of original dorsal scars.The edge is finished and nearly straight but the side view is almost banana shaped in profile as the knapper has had to fight the natural shape of a struck flake and not done enough to totally remove its form. The arrowhead is complete and of a pleasing symmetrical leaf shape. It appears that it was surplus and not s…

A thin lenticular section bifacially worked leaf-shaped arrowhead of cream and very light grey-brown flint. Pressure flaking has partly covered both sides with flake scars. However a lot of the ventral side of the flake blank remains as does the dorsal surface which interestingly is the completely ground finish of an axe .The edge is straight with several simple bold notches towards the butt, perhaps to aid hafting. The leaf tip is completed with a flourish and is convex on one side and concave on the other in plan; much like a real leaf. Less than 30 metres away another flake fom a l…

A bifacially worked flint leaf shaped arrowhead. One face shows covering, scaled and parallel low angle retouch, the opposing face shows invasive, scaled, low angle retouch extending around all margins. The base of the object is flat with a hinge fracture indicating a possible break post manufacture, the tip appears to be missing but has not snapped off as retouch is visible over the area. The flint is opaque, light brown and has an all over low-gloss patina. Date: Early Neolithic to Early Bronze Age 4000 BC to 1600 BC. Dimensions : 28mm x 15.5mm x 3mm. Weight : 1.7g.

An incomplete flint leaf shaped arrowhead of Neolithic date (C. 4500-2500 BC). The arrowhead is kite shaped, type 1C.

Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete leaf shaped arrowhead dating to the early Neolithic period, (circa 3500-2500 BC). The arrowhead is lozenge (pointed oval) in shape and lentoid in cross section. The dorsal and ventral faces of the arrowhead have been extensively and delicately worked with neat well-formed pressure / ripple flakes. There are no visible signs of use. The flint is a poor quality mottled pale grey colour with fine orange veins passing through it. The selection of the flint with this distinctive vein could represent a deliberate aesthetic choice. This example fits well with leaf shaped arrowheads…

A complete leaf shaped flint arrowhead of probable earlier Neolithic date (4000 - 2700 BC) formed on a tertiary flake. The arrowhead is ogival / lentoid (a diamond shaped lozenge) in plan and lentoid in cross section. The arrowhead has been knapped from a mottled light-grey to brown flint which is opaque in places. Both faces of the flint show invasive, scaled, low angled retouch, with one face showing a slight scar, probably caused by a plough or similar machinery. The form is similar in shape to Green's Class 3B or 4B The arrowhead measures 26.5mm length, 14.9mm width, is 2.6mm thic…
