Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Mesolithic to Neolithic (c. 7000 to 2350 BC) debitage: Two flakes knapped from flint. 1. The flake is a tertiary flake with a trapezoidal section. The dorsal surface has three vertical scars and the dorsal surface one. The dorsal surface has conchoidal ripples, low bulb of percussion and bulbar scars. The flake is knapped from flint which is a light brown colour which is developing a mottled light grey patina. It measures 21.45mm long, 18.48mm wide, 4.54mm thick and weighing 1.83g. 2.The flake is a secondary flake with cortex along one lateral straight edge. The other edge is convex.…

Mesolithic to Neolithic (c. 7000 to 2350 BC) debitage: Two flakes knapped from flint. 1.The flake is knapped from a white/grey coloured flint which has a waxy texture. There is a small patch of white patina suggesting the flake has been knapped from a larger, older flake. It is trapezoidal with two vertical scars on the dorsal surface, and at least five scars on the ventral surface which are perpendicular to those on the dorsal surface. There is a small striking platform. It measures 22.45mm long, 15.58mm wide, 6.88mm thick and weighing 2.18g. 2.The flake is a sedonday flake with co…

County: Warwickshire

Early Mesolithic to early Neolithic (8000 to 3500 BC) flint flake, which is an elongated triangle in plan and in section. The ventral surface has a small bulb of percussion, bulbar scar and conchoidal ripples. The dorsal surface has two vertical scars three other smaller scars. The laterial edges feel as if there are serrated, but this is probably due to damage rather than intention. The flint has a mottled dark to light grey colour. The flake measures 17.63mm in length, 11.26mm width, is 3.75mm thick and weighs 0.49g.

Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Distal section of a tertiary flint blade, probably of Mesolithic date, c. 8300 to 3500 BC. The proximal end and the bulb of percussion are missing. The break is irregular with a hinge fracture and irregular breaks on the back; there are possible evidence of retouch on the front but it may be damage rather than deliberate breaking. There is a second retouched notch however about half the way down where the flint changes from translucent grey to opaque buff-grey. This notch is formed by short semi-parallel shallow to abrupt retouch and suggests the piece was being reworked to from microl…

Grey flint core, as kindly identified by the finder. A pyramidal or columnar core with long narrow parallel flakes removed almost all around by unidirectional working from a flat striking platform. A limited patch of patina may suggest the nodule had previously been exposed for a period to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Height: 31.6mm, Width: 23.4mm, Thickness: 17.3mm, Weight: 13.92gms
