Mesolith tranchet adze made from brown flint, 83.3mm in length and 49.7mm wide. The adze has been made from a single large flake with a flat side and a convex side demonstrating further working and removal of characteristic final sharpening flake (Butler, 2005: 100). The edges and tip are damaged. Likely manufactured from a flint nodule obtained from local clay-with-flints outcrops on the chalk Downs.

An incomplete Mesolithic to Neolithic flint adze (c. 9000 BC-c. 3500 BC), The butt is missing due to an old transverse break. This implement is sub-rectangular in plan and sub-triangular in cross-section. It has been bi-facially worked on both faces and has highly invasive removals. In side view it is oblique at the cutting edge. The dorsal surface has a longitudinal median ridge that extends from the butt end to about half way along its length.

A complete flint adze of the Mesolithic to early Neolithic period, dating to 9500 BC-4000 BC. It is oval in plan and tapers towards one end; it has a roughly lozange-shaped cross-section. The tapered end bears the beige cortex surviving (7%). The dorsal surface has a longitudinal median ridge, which forks close to the flaring end. Both the surfaces have multi-directional negative scars. The edges have traces of further retouches and old breaks. The surfaces have a greyish white patina which covers the mottled grey core. Frequent iron stains cover the surfaces. Cf Butler (2005, p. 104,…
