County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint piercer made on a bladelet dating to the Late Upper Palaeolithic to Mesolithic period (c. 20,000-4,000 BC). The piercer has been made on a tertiary flake of a mottled orange-brown flint. The bulb is retained as is the small fragment of the platform. There are two flake scars on the dorsal surface. The lower half of the left hand edge of the dorsal side has been worked with soft hammer precussion, becoming more invasive towards the tip of the piercer, which has detatched, possibly during production but potentially after deposition.

A flint bladelet made of a tertiary flake of mottled orange-brown flint, dating to the Mesolithic period (c. 10,000-4,000 BC). The baldelet is broadly planoconvex with a narrowed distal end. The bulb is retained however the platform at the proximal end is damaged. Numerous thin flake scars (microlith production) are visible over the dorsal surface. There is edge damage to the left hand dorsal side. There is some modern damage to the ventral surface.

A damaged plunging flake of probable Mesolithic date, c. 10,000 - 4,000 BC. The secondary flake has been hard-hammer struck from a mottled orange-brown flint core. There is a seam of quartz visible. Ancient flakes scars are evident on the dorsal surface but there is also modern damage to all surfaces. The flake has a wide central section that tapers towards either end while the dorsal side has a stepped profile.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint Scraper of Mesolithic to Neolithic date (9000-1500 BC). The lithic is sub-rectangular in plan and concavo-convex in section. The dorsal surface is convex and has two predominant negative scars. The right hand edge has short parallel flaking. All edges except the blunted proximal edge have fine semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is slightly concave and has ripples of percussion emanating from the proximal end. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. The flint is dark grey in colour with cream inclusions throughout. Length: 42.30mm, Widt…

A complete flint Core of Mesolithic date (9,000-5,500 BC). The object is a single platform blade core. The object is sub-triangular with one clear striking platform, the other end tapers to a point while the ventral surface is covered with cortex. There are eleven predominant negative scars with corresponding arrises. One of the scars was produced by hinged flake removal toward the distal end. The scars are long and parallel with a sub-rectangular plan. The proximal end or striking platform is narrow and flat. The flint is a dark grey in colour with some cream inclusions. The cortex …

A complete flint core rejuvenation flake from the Mesolithic period, dating from 9000-4300 BC. The flint is a long triangular shape. On the dorsal face there are conchoidal ripple marks running up the flint. These are weak suggesting that a soft hammer was used. On the proximal end is a small striking platform. There is a small bulb of percussion on the ventral face. The retouch is short, scaled and abrupt along one edge of the distal end. The flint is a pale grey and brown colour, with patches of white across the surface. The flint measures 38.1mm in length, 15.9mm in width, 6.5mm in…

A Mesolithic (10,000 - 4000 BC) flint pick with an off-centre lozengiform cross-section, the apex of each face being left of centre with the rounded end positioned uppermost. Broad flake removals run generally from the apex to either long side. On one face there are narrow, long and thin removals from the apex to the rounded, thinner end of the object. To the opposite face at this point the flake removals are multi-directional and less clear. On this same face but at the opposite short end is a flake removal and possible hinge fracture beneath it, creating a horizonatal end extending …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Mesolithic - Neolithic (10,000 - 2100 BC) flint pick, with flake removals from both faces. One face is rather flatter while the other has a (slightly off-centre) central apex, giving the object a triangular cross-section. It has roughly parallel sides. Both ends of the pick narrow to a point, one of which is thin and rounded with wide, short, semi-abrupt flake removals around the edge of the flatter face with a longer, wide flake extending towards the edge from the higher surface above. At the opposite end of this face long flake removals are angled from the middle towards the edges.…

A Mesolithic - Neolithic (10,000 - 2100 BC) flint pick with a triangular cross-section and roughly parallel sides, all of which narrow to either end, one of which is a broad point and the other an apparently natural blunt end one set transversely to the point. This blunt end has a different surface colouring to most of the rest of the object, presumably an 'original' surface of the flint, now a creamy-orange 'light toffee' colour. While all three faces are of similar dimensions, the flat broad point gives one flat face and one with a prominent apex. Two long narrow flake scars are appa…

A complete knapped flint probable tranchet axehead of Late Mesolithic date (6500- 4000 BC) date. It is flatter to one surface than the other (the latter retaining a broad band of cortex longitudinally along the centre) and is parallel-sided. The flint is grey in colour to the flatter face and much darker/ black around the cortex. There are wide, semi-abrupt flake removals at the thicker short end (cortex face), fanning from the top-centre to the edge. To the opposite, flatter face there are transverse flake removals. There is a possible hinge fracture at the opposite short end. The obj…

A flint crested bladelet or crested flake of probable Mesolithic date (c. 10,000-4000 BC). The bladelet has been made on a secondary flake of a grey-brown, semi-translucent flint. Some cresting is visible on the dorsal side. The bulb is retained although incomplete, probably as a result of modern damage.
