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…

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

A possible worked flint possible blade (length: 53.7mm; width: 17.5mm; thickness: 8.1mm; weight: 7.43g). General working is recognisable on the dorsal and ventral. The bulb of percussion is no longer visible on the ventral, but some ripples or 'lunettes' are still visible running down the flint's length. There are smaller worked areas along the left side of the ventral. Part of the core is still visible at one end.

The blade has been knapped from a opaque mid brown coloured flint, which has developed a light grey/blue coloured patina. The blade is not quite complete, the proximal end is missing, therefore the unpatinated flint is visible. The blade is sub-trapezoidal shape in section. There are negative flake scars on the dorsal surface. The length of the blade is 53.9mm long, 16.9mm wide and 4.7mm wide. It weighs 4.14g. The blade probably dates to the Neolithic period.

Two faces on the obverse one of which is narrow (6mm wide) and very steep, both side have a large amount of detailed pressure flaked retouch. One face on the reverse. There is a considerable amount of damage to the lower section with two large flakes removed, mainly due to frost damage. This has resulted in the artefact looking like a Bronze Age bared and tanged arrowhead, however the true nature of the artefact may be a knife or a retouched flake.

Probably Neolithic possible blade, measuring 40.7x17.3x5.4mm and weighing 3.91g. The distal edge is the widest part and has been worked thin with a little retouch. The right and left edges extend outwards to meet either end of this edge and have been abruptly worked on both dorsal and ventral faces. There is no retouch. The flint is c.90% patinated with a small patch of iron staining. Retouch shows a dark grey flint beneath.

A flint serrated blade or denticulate of probable early Neolithic date. The blade measures 36.8mm by 12.6mm by 3.2mm and weighs 1.9g. It is a secondary flake (c. 5% nodule cortex remaining on the dorsal surface) of slightly transparent mid-brown flint. It is fresh and (probably) complete. The diffuse bulb of percussion suggests the use of a soft hammer. Along almost the entire length of one lateral side there are tiny continuous notches or denticulations.

Part of a worked flint blade. The blade has been snapped at both ends but some percussion waves are visible on the ventral face. The snap at the distal end is even with two straight facets, at the proximal end it is jagged and probably not deliberte. The proximal half of the left edge (looking from the ventral side) is also snapped, removing the cutting edge. The blade has been extensively retouched, invasive, shallow semi-parallel retouch covers the entire dorsal face and c.50% of the ventral face, concentrated at the proximal end.

This is a particularly interesting example of a tertiary lithic tool, or interior flake, lacking as it does any sign of the cortex. The material is opaque mottled pale cream and has a fine microcrystalline structure with apparent mineral inclusions; the surface has the waxy lustre of chalcedony. The ventral surface exhibits a delaminated or, exfoliation area which may be the result of a fault within the structure of the material. It has a longitudinal length of approximately 2.5 times its width and may thus be considered a ‘blade’. Due to the relative 'bluntness' of the back s…

Orange-brown-coloured flint blade, with a minimum of three earlier blade removals visible on the dorsal face. The bulb of percussion is clearly visible on the ventral face, as are ripples running conversely across the length of this face. It has been truncated at the point of percussion: this is known to have taken place since it was found, roughly 20 years ago. Similarly, there may be some retouch along the edges of the blade, although this may have also been caused by damage since its discovery.

The blade is of roughly triangular cross-section but a very narrow flake has been taken from the apex of the triangle to give a slightly trapezoidal shape. There is a large notch taken from one side of the blade. Length 44.5mm, width 14.1mm, thickness 4.7mm, weight 3.50g

There is some small retouch at the distal end of the ventral face, that on the right hand side is invasive and semi abrupt while that on the left hand side is short and semi abrupt. On the dorsal face their has been extensive retouch to remove material on the right hand side, this has created a blunt, almost flat edge for hafting. The retouch is abru…

Neolithic flint blade. The blade was made on a tertiary blank with no cortex remaining and has extensive retouch. It is 39.8mm long, 17.5mm wide, 5.5mm thick and weighs 3.7g. It may have been used as a small knife or transeverse arrowhead and probably dates to the Mid-Late Neolithic. The bulb of percussion appears to have been removed by shattering of the flint during retouching. There is a small amount of scale retouch half way along the left hand edge of the ventral face and towards the proximal end of the right hand edge; the ventral face is otherwise unworked.

There is steep working on the left dorsal edge near the distal end, and lighter working further down. The right edge has little working. The working of the flake is retouch as it exposes the grey colour of the flint below the patination.

The object is a knapped blade, possibly a notched blade from the Neolithic period. The blade is knapped from a mottled mid grey coloured flint. In plan the blade is a sub-rectangle. The section is trapezoidal in shape. The upper edge is broken and has therefore lost its bulb of percussion. The lower edge is obliquely angled with cortex remaining. One of the long sides has a possible notch, forming a sub semi-circular indentation. The blade measures 49.1mm long, 22.98mm wide and 4.46mm thick. It weighs 6.62g.

No cortex survives on the dorsal face, which suggests that the implement has been made from a tertiary flake.
