A knapped flint core of probable Bronze Age date, c. 2500-1500 BC. The core is sub-rectangular in plan, demonstrating removals from both faces and sides with little apparent care for flake direction and forethought of detachment. Heavily worked down (probably representing the reason for its discard), it is now patinated a yellowy grey colour with some iron staining visible on its surfaces. Preserved in relatively fresh condition, the core measures 71.43mm in length down its longest axis, c. 56.14mm wide at its widest point and 30.8mm thick at its midpoint. It weighs 159.6g.

Two flint core chunks, both of probable later Bronze Age date, c. 1600-800 BC. The first is a tertiary flake, sub-trapezoidal in plan and triangular in cross section, and probably extensively damaged. It is of an opaque black-brown flint. The dorsal face is faceted, the right featuring no conchoidal ripples and possibly being natural, and with the right edge being damaged through abrasion. The left facet features two obliquely angled, sub-parallel negative removal scars, with the proximal end of the left edge also damaged. The proximal end is battered, resulting in a confused array of…

A chert core of probable Bronze Age date, c. AD 1600-800. A sub-tetrahedron shaped fragment of brown chert, with large and distinct areas of quartz-like inclusions and areas of a smooth, beige cortex remaining on one face. A series of sub-parallel removals have been struck from this face, through the cortex, leaving overhanging promonotories or lips at he interstice of each removal, suggesting a lack of platform preparation. Dimensions: length 58.4mm; width 55.3mm; thickness 55.8mm; weight 130.50g. Although sub-parallel removals may suggest an earlier date, their irregular size and l…

A flint core of probable Bronze Age date, c. AD 1600-800. A sub-conical fragment of chert-like grey flint mottled with regular inclusions, and with a small area of thin, compact, beige-pink cortex below the striking platform. The core has two largely unworked facets, with a series of irregularly sized sub-parallel removals from the the third. A promonotory projects from between each removal, suggesting a lack of platform preparation. Dimensions: length 40.8mm; width 42.6mm; thickness 38.9mm; weight 40.33g. Although sub-parallel removals may suggest an earlier date, their irregular si…

Dark grey flint with cortex; possible core. A long chunk with large flakes removed from three of its four sides by hard hammer strike. The aris between adjacent faces is crisp, and only a small pot lid fracture and a larger conchoidal scar appear to post-date the putative evidence for working. This may argue the recent exposure of this object. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Height: 62.7mm, Width: 36.6mm, Thickness: 20.9mm, Weight: 55.86gms

Two flint cores, one incomplete, of probable Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date, c. 3000-800 BC. DEV-667E4A and DEV-66439A are part of the same scatter. 1. A secondary core of a glassy black flint with little to no visible inclusions. A large amount of cortex remains on one face, c. 30% of the overall surface. The core has a single striking platform from which a number of irregularly sized but broadly sub-parallel flakes have been struck. The core has then been rotated to 7 o'clock and a removal scar used as the platform for a subsequent removal. The core has a broadly sub-rec…

A probable Late Neolithic to Bronze Age pebble flint core, probably dating to c. 3000-800 BC. Sub-rectangular in plan and sub-rectangular in cross section, with cortex covering much of the reverse. The core has a single striking platform, one side of which appears to have been lost to more recent damage. From this platform a number of sub-parallel blade-like flake removals have been struck with further removals struck at a perpendicular angle apparently using removal scars as a platform. Of a grey flint mottled with paler patches and ferrous inclusions. Dimensions: length 44.6mm; w…

A flint core of probable Late Neolithic to Early Bronze age date, c. 4000-1000 BC. The tertiary core of mottled grey/dark grey flint is broadly trapezoidal in plan and broadly triagular in profile. It exhibits flake and blade-like flake removal scars, struck from a variety of directions, suggesting the core was being rotated around and multiple striking platforms used. The unusually squat form of the core suggests that it is itself potentially a fragment of a larger core. Dimensions: length 29.7mm; width 28.0mm; thickness 18.4mm; weight 15.72g. The use of multiple striking platf…

An irregularly shaped flint Bronze Age core fragment (c. 2350-800) All faces are covered with broad, negative flake scars indicative of the removal of large flakes; rather than the narrow parallel flake scars indicative of the production of Mesolithic or early Neolithic blades. There is evidence of multi-platform working, with at least two striking platforms on both the dorsal and ventral faces, both of which have been struck at direction 45 degrees of each other. There are some accidental breaks on the other sides. The negative bulbs of percussion on both the dorsal and ventral face …

An irregularly shaped fragment of a flint core, probably dating to the Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age, c. 2900-1600. On one face of the core are the patinated scars of three longitudinal removals, with a fragment of a fourth also surviving. The removals, which appear to have been relatively crude blade-like flakes, were all struck from the same direction, and with one of the removals terminating in a hinge fracture. A portion of the platform from which these flakes were struck survives and it can be seen to overhang the corresponding removal, suggesting a lack of platform preparat…

A small conical flint core fragment, probably dating to the Late Neolithic or early Bronze Age, c. 2900-1600, although it could potentially be earlier. The core is of a dark brown/black flint, with a long sub-triangular plan and a sub-circular cross section. The base has a regular break with no conchoidal ripple marks, and which appears to be natural. There are quite large areas of cortex remaining on some faces of the core. More recent damage has confused the removal scars making it unclear what direction they were struck from, however the shape of the core would suggest they were st…

A small discoidal flint core fragment, probably dating to the Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age, c. 2900-1600 BC. The core is of an orange flint, sub-circular in plan with a shallow sub-triangular cross section and slightly convex base, giving it a cone-shaped appearance. Only and extremely small amount of cortex remains on the surface, with four larger blade-like nagative removal scars on the lateral surface, as well as some smaller removal scars. These removals were struck from multiple directions, with at least two struck from the scar of another removal. A diffuse bulb of percuss…

~~Early Bronze Age / Beaker Period core that has been made from the cutting end of a Neolithic polished axe. The remaining polished area are on the dorsal where the slop of the cutting edge is visible in profile and on the left6 side where the curved polished edge is partly retained. The top left corner of the axe head is missing, this is a result of frost damage and shows heavy pitting on the distal end and running down the right side. There is a large flaking scar on the ventral side, the is partially obscured but potted frost damage. Finally there are large flaking scares at the …

A small flint Levalloisian core of likely early Bronze Age date c. 2200-1000 BC. Description: The core is irregularly shaped with two striking platforms at right angles. The core has distinctive 'tortoise shell' flaking typical of Levalloisian production technique, however it is far smaller than the tools being produced during the Middle-Palaeolithic and likely relates to the use of the technique during the early Bronze Age. It seems probable due to the size of the core that it may have been produce a thumb nail scraper or other equally small tool. The core is light blue-grey mottl…

Much of the surface is covered with various flaking scars, one side has preparation flaking. There appears to be retouch along parts of the tapering end of the flake, it can be described as short, scaled, semi-abrupt retouch along the square jutting tab at the bottom of the flake possibly indicating its reuse as a scraper or similar. There is a large dish scar on side which may or may be from tool removal or fr…

Flint with cortex core. Flint pebble with broad flakes removed from two sides by unidirectional working from a flat platform. The object is heavily crazed, indicating it has been intensely heated. This would probably be in a hearthside situation, as the stone is explosively unsuitable for use as a pot boiler. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Height: 35.8mm, Width: 29.6mm, Thickness: 20.6mm, Weight: 24.30gms
