Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Seven sherds representing 84% of the base from a cremation urn / burial vessel - most probably of Early - Middle Bronze Age date (2200-1800 BC). The seven sherds vary in size, thickness and weight but all have been broken due to disturbance in the ground through ploughing having crisp fresh unweathered or abraded edges. The fragments were gathered together by the farmer who noticed a white powdery spread in a recently improved / ploughed field suggesting that they were recovered shortly after disturbing the below ground archaeological context. It is probable that the ceramics represen…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A near complete axe head formed of a coarse grained igneous rock dating from the later Neolithic date (3000-2000 BC). The axe has been knapped and pecked into shape although the surface is heavily weathered. The rock from which it is made has a buff brown coloured patina. A small removal on the cutting edge reveals a much darker charcoal grey coloured fine grained igneous stone beneath. There is considerable mid pink brown staining across the body of the axe and this maybe as a result of the burial environment which is commensurate with the red colour of Herefordshire soil which are i…

A possible Levalloisian core flake / blade of most probable Neolithic date. The blade is rectangular in plan with a lenticular cross-section. The lower edge is broken - most probably in antiquity as the whole flint has the same mid-grey coloured milky surface patina. The flaking appears intentionally to have shaped the flint while still on the original core, creating a distinctive 'tortoise shell' flaking, typical of Levallois flint technology. The ventral face shows a prominent bulb of percussion indicating probable use of a hard hammer, likewise the striking platform is well prepare…

A single reused tertiary waste flake struck from a prepared core of later Mesolithic or more probably earlier Neolithic date (4000-2000 BC). The flake has been struck and retouched in multiple directions. Two distinct points / awls have been formed on two of the four corners. Both corners share similar pointed triangular shaped wedges most probably partially formed / created with burin like removal flakes. The majority of the retouch to form the boring point is neat and well formed being best described as short, sub-parallel or scaled and either abrupt or semi-abrupt. Importantly one …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An abraded tertiary debitage waste flake of probable later Neolithic date (4500-2500 BC) which has been utilised to form a very crude scraper. The flake is broadly rectangular shape in plan with a wedge shaped cross section. The retouch has been applied to the curved original lower edge on the dorsal face only and is best described as short, sub-parallel and semi-abrupt. The flint is a highly mottled mid-grey colour. It is likely that this retouch is applied to utilise a waste flake and discarded shortly after creation. The Object measures: Length: 33.96mm, Width: 28.61m…

Fifteen irregularly shaped pieces of tertiary debitage / waste flakes dating from the Neolithic period. All the waste flakes are relatively thin in section - many showing evidence of multi-directional working and are probably from the finishing process. The upper / dorsal face on several of the flakes have numerous flake scar removals. The ventral faces are unworked. The flint is a mottled mid grey colour.

Five abraded tertiary debitage waste flakes struck from prepared cores of Neolithic date (4000-2000 BC). All the flakes are broadly a rectangular shape in plan have various opposing removals on the upper dorsal faces. Likewise all flakes have retouch applied to the one surviving original long edge on the dorsal face only; here it creates a serrated cutting edge: this retouch in all cases is best described as short, sub-parallel and semi-abrupt. The extent and competency of this retouch varies. The flint colour varies from a white through to a mid-grey or black The flakes measure:…

Eight (8) flakes of secondary flint waste / debitage of Neolithic date (3500-2100 BC). All of the flakes are from secondary phase of working / flaking and are a direct result of preparation of flint tools. Most show clear signs of direct hard hammer knapping and the majority have been removed with minimal loss of flint from the nodule / core. The cortex is all mid grey in colour and the majority is chalk derived. The majority of the flint is a light grey through to black colour, although some pieces have milky white surface patina. This collection is from an assemblage of later M…

Four (4) scrapers of later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2300 -1800BC). The scrapers vary in colour from mid grey to pale brown. All are formed on oval or round tertiary flakes, some of which might be reused tertiary debitage.

A fabricator of uncertain date but most probably from the late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date. The fabricator is formed on a triangular sectioned rod of knapped flint - which is a mid-reddish browne in colour with two very small areas of off white chalk derived cortex. The ventral face shows clear conchoidal ripples however the striking platform and bulb of concussion are lost. Both long edges of the dorsal face have been retouched and both exhibit significant ground pressure damage on the cutting edge from use.

A fabricator of uncertain date but most probably from the late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date. The fabricator is formed on a triangular sectioned rod of knapped flint - which is a mid-grey colour with an area of off white chalk derived cortex on one area - this cortex could also act as a textured holding point which would aid grip during use. The ventral face shows clear conchoidal ripples and a small striking platform is present on the distal terminal of the ventral face. Both long edges of the dorsal face have been retouched and both exhibit significant ground pressure damage on…

Five complete and snapped flint blades or bladlets of later Mesolithic date (6000BC - 3500BC). These blades are struck from a core and have the generic crested appearance on their dorsal faces. Many of the blades have been deliberately snapped through the removal of side notches and deliberate breaking. The underside / ventral face of each shows conchoidal rippling and some have evidence of bulb of percussion and / or striking platforms. All the blades have some form of retouch along their long edges - this is best described as being disorganised short, sub-parallel, semi-abrupt which…

Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A mottled mid grey coloured core rejuvination flake of later Mesolithic date. In form the flint is blade like with a crested shaped profile. The ventral face has a bulb of percussion and chonchoidal ripples - a clear knapping platform is present. The dorsal face has a series of parallel sided blade scars extending in multiple directions. This suggests that the core from which this blade was struck had been previously worked in at least two opposing directions - with it being turned twice through 45 degrees to allow for additional blade removals. There is no retouch present and this bl…

Six (6) irregular flint cores used for the production of blades of later Mesolithic date (6500BC - 3500BC). All of the cores are irregular in plan and profile. Four (4) of the six are true (classic) cores being broadly sub-rectangular or sub-triangular in plan with a series of neat compact scars / blade removals in one or more directions. Many of the cores have multiple striking platforms which are neatly trimmed and dressed. All cores are relatively small and the other two examples are probably core fragments removed by either redressing the core to work in an opposing direction; or,…

A brass mechanised and orignally sprung powder measure. This machined composite brass element fixed via a screw thread (now lost) to the mouth of a leather powder horn / flask. By depressing the sprung lever a series of shaped slides move allowing a single measure of black powder to be dispensed into the muzzle of a either a musket or rifle. The form of this measure is unusual and is likely to date from the period 1780-1860, being used as an alternative to paper cartridges. The form of powder flask is likely to have been used for sport rather than military service. The measure is…
