A small (diameter c20mm) stone ball formed out of a hard grey sedimentary stone with visible bedding planes. It was found eroding out of an mid to late mesolithic strata. It has had its sphericity augmented by pecking and rubbing. Its purpose is unknown but it looks like a sling stone. It weighs 7.4 grms. Probably dates to between c8300 to c2900 BC. None of the very scarce comparable records has yet had a purpose ascribed to it. Numerous microliths, mesolithic debitage and material up to the Bronze Age, has been found on the site. see LANCUM-0F97C8 for further notes on this site.

Three blades of tertiary debitage (from the third / final phase of tool making) of Mesolithic date (6500-3500 BC). The three blades are all struck on poor quality flint cores which vary in coarseness and colour, all being glacial or riverine derived, some possibly being chert rather than flint. All of the blades are irregular and have not been reworked / retouched. I have described these blade fragments as debitage as I believe that they were knapped to prepare the core for larger blades. The dorsal faces of some of the flakes show ridges and flake scars, the reverse faces show concho…

One very small Mesolithic blade core in pale to mid-grey flint. It is conical with a prepared platform at the top and angled sides showing repeated, parallel bladelet removals. One side is still covered in cortex suggesting it is pebble flint. There is also a patch of cortex in the middle of the other side, either from a flaw in the flint or suggesting a very small pebble was used. It is illustrates the intense utilisation of available material. It is 24.1 by 17.5mm across the top and 26.4mm long, it weighs 9.82 grams.

Twelve snapped flagements of blades. Seven proximal ends (microburin), two centre sections and three distal ends. Only three have any cortex remaining and on those it is less than 15% coverage. The proximal ends show evidence of working off prepared platforms and all show evidence on the dorsal faces of repeated parallel removals frpm a blade core. Some at least of the snaps are deliberate with chipping to one side suggesting the pieces were notched before snapping. The flint varies, one is palest grey, two pale buff while the others are mid grey with paler mottling. They weigh 21.08 …
