Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pale grey flint with patches of cloudy patina possible Transverse Arrowhead, as kindly identified by the finder. Irregular flake with flakes removed from opposite directions on its dorsal side and with a low bulb on the ventral. A chip at one corner of the putative arrowhead may detract from what was already a fairly irregular form. Suggested date: Late Neolithic, 2700-2350 BC. Length: 22.8mm, Width: 26.5mm, Thickness: 2.4mm, Weight: 1.70gms.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pale buff flint with cortex and cloudy white patina patches Knife. Flake with a single flake removed from its dorsal side and a prominent bulb on the ventral, both from hard hammer strike. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect interrupts the patina and forms a cutting edge along one curving side. Cortex is also removed along from the opposite edge; this and other chips which interrupt cortex or patina could have arisen fortuitously. Both episodes of deliberate working could be accommodated within the Neolithic period. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Le…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pale semi-translucent flint Transverse Arrowhead, as kindly identified by the finder. Small flake with long parallel flakes removed from the dorsal side and with a bulb on the ventral, the working of the two sides being at right angles. Short abrupt retouch, probably a single impact, has trimmed what is here taken as the cutting edge of the arrowhead. The projectile must have received nearly all its effect from the combined power of bow and weight of the arrow shaft behind this lightweight head. Suggested date: Late Neolithic, 2700-2350 BC. Length: 11.4mm, Width: 14.2mm, Thickness:…

Grey flint with cortex and cloudy patina Debitage. A small elongated flake of very slightly curved profile. The accumulation of patina was followed by slight chipping; all could be fortuitous. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 22.2mm, Width: 10.2mm, Thickness: 3.5mm, Weight: 1.00gms.

Opaque pale grey flint with cortex Scraper. A flake of wavy profile with parallel flakes removed from the dorsal side in the course of cortex trimming, and with short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect along its curved edge. The smooth ventral surface, which is reminiscent of a negative hinge fracture, facilitates a grip between finger and thumb. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500 BC. Length: 27.7mm, Width: 23.2mm, Thickness: 6.4mm, Weight: 4.34gms.

Pale grey flint with patches of cloudy patina Scraper. Flake with broad flakes removed from its ventral side and with a bulb on the ventral. Short abrupt pressure flaked retouch removes the thin patina accumulated over a flake struck at some time before this reworking. The lack of patina on retouch may suggest the reworked object was then incorporated into a sealed context. Both episodes could be accommodated by a Neolithic date. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 35.3mm, Width: 17mm, Thickness: 10.6mm, Weight: 5.47gms.

Dark grey flint of good quality, with extensive white patina, Scraper. Oval flake with broad and narrow flakes removed from its dorsal side and rippled on the ventral. Short abrupt retouch of a protruding lobe has removed milky white patina, revealing the darker tint of flint beneath. This must have followed a long period during which the flake was exposed to weathering, and may imply that the struck flake was then recognised as of further value. However, both episodes could be accommodated by a Neolithic date. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 36.5mm, Width: 34.5mm,…

Mottled pale grey flint Knife fragment. Small oval-ended flake with three long parallel flakes removed from the dorsal side, a bulb of percussion on the ventral side, and with very short abrupt and probably pressure flaked retouch along a short [7mm] concave part of one side; the object has broken from a longer flake, though this may have occurred before the retouch facilitating continued use or reuse. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500 BC. Length: 18.1mm, Width: 16.9mm, Thickness: 3.3mm, Weight: 1.36gms.

Grey flint of good quality Knife. Flake with broad flakes removed from its dorsal side and with a striking platform and prominent bulb on the ventral. Very short retouch along one side is executed from the dorsal aspect. The primary working is characteristic of hard hammer strike and the retouch of pressure flaking, while the complete lack of patina and sharp edges suggests incorporation in a sealed context shortly after deposition. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500 BC. Length: 22.8mm, Width: 23.7mm, Thickness: 6.8mm, Weight: 2.66gms.

Grey flint with extensive cloudy patina and a little cortex Knife. Flake with two flakes removed its dorsal side and with a bulb on the ventral. Very short abrupt retouch along one side executed from the dorsal aspect forms a short cutting edge, with the thicker blunt edge with relict cortex on the opposite side opposite affording grip between finger and thumb. The finder kindly cites NLM-257068 as a parallel. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500 BC. Length: 24.6mm, Width: 20.3mm, Thickness: 5.4mm, Weight: 3.10gms.

Grey flint with cortex and overall cloudy patina Debitage. Flake with three long parallel flakes removed from its dorsal side, concave on the ventral with a slightly curved profile. The thick patina indicates this flint was subject to prolonged exposure after deposition. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500 BC. Length: 33.3mm, Width: 26.9mm, Thickness: 12.4mm, Weight: 5.47gms.

Dark brown flint of good quality with cortex spot Knife. Leaf-shaped flake with two broad flakes removed from the dorsal side and with a bulb at one end and a positive hinge fracture at the other end of the ventral side. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect enhances a short cutting edge on one side; other chips probably represent fortuitous damage. The selection of a distinctively dark brown flint is characteristic of a few, usually early, stone tools reported from the region. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500 BC.

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete Neolithic polished greenstone axehead dating to the period c. 4000 - 2500 BC. The axehead is trapezoidal in shape and widens from the butt end to the blade. It tapers in thickness from the butt end to the blade. The axehead has an ovular cross-section at the butt end and a lenticular cross-section at the blade end. The butt end of the axehead was broken off in antiquity and the remaining fragment reused. The butt end appears to have been used as a hammer stone. There is evidence of pecking on this surface and it is slightly rounded. The cutting edge of the blade has been…

Object type: PERFORATED OBJECT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete stone macehead of Mesolithic to early Bronze Age date (c. 8500 - 1601BC). The macehead is made from a smooth waterworn quartzite pebble. The macehead is semi-circular in shape. Approximately 50% remains. There is a break across the centre of the peforation. The hourglass profile of the perforation indicates that it was worked from both sides. There is some evidence of pecking on the rounded edge of the macehead, indicating that it may have been used as a pebble hammer. The quartzite is orange-brown in colour with red-brown inclusion, indicating a high iron content. Th…
