Record ID: DOR-CE041D
Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An Acheulian greensand chert handaxe of 'ovate' type. The axe is well thinned and both faces exhibit large, shallow flake scars all over with only minor secondary edge working. The slightly irregular cutting edge extends around the entire axe, including the slightly squared butt, and the piece exhibits a marked S-twist. The chert is mid orange-brown and fine grained, largely reflecting the original colour (seen in areas of minor edge damage); the patina on one face is matt, the other slightly semi-gloss. Flake scar ridges are slightly abraded but there is no evidence for prolonged or …

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An Acheulian greensand chert handaxe of 'ficron' type with an elongated tapering point and larger rounded butt. Both faces are carefully flaked to produce a lenticular cross section, thinning along the axis of the axe to a fine blunt-pointed tip. The margins of the axe are slightly convex and also carefully worked to form even centre line edges. The sub-squared butt is formed from two natural fractures and has been battered to blunt the edge created by axial flaking on the opposite face. The original chert seems to be variable mid brown-grey and particularily fine grained. Surfaces a…

The chert was originally mid to dark orange brown and now has a slight repatination, all surfaces are matt. One area of hard greensand remains, forming part of the waist of the axe. There is slight abrasion of …

County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a cast copper alloy button or possibly cuff link. The front has a design of a heart within a circular field with traces of a densely stippled background. The missing half probably depicted a second heart surmounted by a central crown. This design was used to commemorate the marriage of Charles Stuart and Henrietta Maria of France (AD 1603). Similar designs were used throughout the 17th century, and buttons and cufflinks of comparable form are known in other materials, including silver. The reverse has traces of the corroded attachment loop. NARC-E2E6E7 on this databa…
