Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Published Find published

This may be a fortuitous result of some form of flaking, but there are no sign of conchoidal rippling so this is unlikely to be the result of artificial flaking. There is a central retained patch of cortex on the dorsal side. Dorsal retouch invasive, sub-parallel, low angled; ventral retouch invasive, parallel, low angled. Dates from c3500 to …

Object type: SERRATED IMPLEMENT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Mid to late Bronze Age serrated implement, and possible knife/scraper, formed on a tertiary flake of pale honey flint with large cream inclusions. Serrated edges have been formed by short, semi-parallel, abrupt retouch to the distal/mesal edges and the oblique distal end edge. The height of the dorsal ridge has been reduced and the proximal end thinned by invasive, scaled, low-angled retouch. Dates from c1600 to c800 BC. The length is 41mm, width 17mm, thickness 8mm, and the weight is 4.60g.
