A complete flint leaf shaped lithic of probable Neolithic date (3500-2100 BC), possibly a waste flake with some indication of retouching to the lateral margins. There are four main negative scars on the dorsal surface which create a raised triangular plan toward the proximal end, each of which contain cracking ripples, the distal end terminates in a point.

Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire

An incomplete stone axehead of Neolithic date. The axehead is sub-oval in both plan and section with extensive damage to one side. One face is smooth and polished while the other has lost much of its original surface due to damage resulting in a rough irregular appearance. The cutting edge of the axe is still fairly sharp with two small damaged notches to either side. The axe is comprised of a grey-green fine-grained siliceous tuff - a sedimentary volcanic rock possibly from the Great Langdale quarries in Cumbria. This stone was most probably chosen for its colour and fineness which…

An incomplete stone axehead of Neolithic date. The axehead is triangular in plan and oval in section with extensive damage along one edge. Both faces are largely smooth and polished however both have numerous chipped and broken areas. The cutting edge of the axe remains largely in tact and is still fairly sharp. The axe is comprised of a grey-green fine-grained siliceous tuff - a sedimentary volcanic rock possibly from the Great Langdale quarries in Cumbria. This stone was most probably chosen for its colour and fineness which allowed it to be highly polished. It is likely that axes…
