Toffee coloured flint with cortex debitage. A thick flake with a tiny striking platform and a large bulb of percussion at one end of its ventral surface. A possible run of short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect occurs on one part of one side, where the cortex has been trimmed. The finder kindly suggests this may be of Mesolithic or even Palaeolithic date, but the tint of the flint does not appear altered by the passage of the significant period this would require so this reporter would favour a more recent date. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 43.…

Grey-brown flint with cortex, debitage. A thick flake with a broad flake struck from its dorsal side and with broad parallel flakes struck from its convex ventral surface. Two or three draughts of angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect appear at one end of the object, and the same edge is lightly battered. The form of the flint recalls that of a naturally formed pot lid fracture, though this may have been adapted; improvised or casual use may be represented. Suggested date: Bronze Age, 2350-800 BC. Length: 53.1mm, Width: 37.8mm, Thickness: 14.4mm, Weight: 28.87gms

A crude elongate plano-convex knife. Made on a large secondary flake of pale grey flint with off-white mottles. It retains a small area of abraded nodule cortex and there is iron staining along the flake ridges. There is a small bulb of percussion at the proximal end and numerous irregularly spaced waves of percussion on the ventral face. There are several large parallel flaking scars on the dorsal face. There is scalar retouch along both of the long edges and at the distal end. Along one side the retouch is semi abrupt and along the opposite edge the retouch is more invasive and proba…

Sevon incomplete flakes prehistoric flint debitage. The flakes represent a number of flint sources, and are a mix of tertiary and secondary flakes, although where it survives the area still covered by cortex is invariably small. The proximal end survives on three flakes, these all have relatively diffuse bulbs of percussion, only one exhibiting a bulbar scar and with one exhibtiign a slight 'lip' at the platform, suggesting the use of a soft hammer. One flake exhibits platform preparation, and clear evidence of multiple striking platforms. The flakes exhibit a mixture of sub-parallel a…

A complete flint flake of later prehistoric (Neolithic to Bronze Age) date, c. 3000-1500 BC. The flake has been hard hammer struck from a tertiary striking of a motlled white flint with a grey core. The platform is retained as is the bulb. There is no retouch evident.

A Flake of Prehistoric flint debitage, probably of later prehistoric date, c. 3,300-800 BC. A tertiary flake of mottled beige-brown flint exhibiting a pronounced, hinged bulb on percussion with bubar scar. The dorsal face exhibits a number of negative removal scars, struck from multiple platforms and with a number being hinged. The flake likewise has a hinged terminal at the distal end. There is extensive damage to the right edge of the dorsal face. The flake exhibits no retouch, although chattering along the dorsal edge of the striking platform may suggest the use of platform preparat…

Two flakes of flint debitage, probably dating to the Neolithic to Early Bronze age, c. 4000-1,600BC, by association with other material found as part of the same assemblage. Both flakes are tertiary, representing two separate types of flint. The striking platform and bulb of percussion are retained on a single flake, where it is relatively pronounced and scarred. On the same flake, the negative removal scars on the dorsal face are irrgular in size and struck from a platform at roughly 45 degrees to the surviving platform. The second flake terminates in a hinge fracture, with only a sin…

A single flake of flint debitage, of probable prehistoric date. A tertiary flake of translucent brown flint with bands of grey-beige inclusions. A relatively large bulb of percussion survives at the proximal end, with bulbar scar. Abrasion to the dorsal edge of the striking platform would suggest the use of platform preparation. The sub-parallel, negative removal scars on the dorsal face appear to have been struck from th same platform as the overall removal. There is a small patch of white patination at the distal point, suggesting possible reuse of older material. There is no retouch…

A piece of flint debitage probably of middle/late Bronze Age date (c. 1600 - c. 800 BC). Flint, pale grey, opaque, all surfaces covered with pale orange-yellow patina. Red iron staining on both faces suggesting movement within a river. Broadly triangular in plan with one convex edge and curved corners; trapezoidal in cross-section. Tertiary working, hard hammer: the ventral face has a large bulb of percussion at the proximal end. Possible short, scaled, semi abrupt retouch on small areas of the edge of ventral face, but this may be ancient damage. Overall, the object measures 38.7 mm

33 pieces of flint debitage and 1 flake of chert debitage of probable later Bronze Age date, c. 1600-800 BC. The group appears to represent a variety of flint sources, including some pebble flint fragments and comprises of 1 chert (7.43g) and 1 flint (31.25g) primary flake, 19 secondary flakes (350.49g) and 13 tertiary flakes (89.72g). In general the knapping is very crude, producing large, crude flakes with removals struck from several directions and exhibiting characteristics suggestive of hard-hammer percussion, suggesting a date range in the later Prehistoric period. Part of a larg…

Four pieces of flint debitage, probably dating to the Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age. The assemblage can be divided into two groups: the first group contains a single secondary flake of translucent dark brown-grey flint, with sandy cortex covering c. 20% of the dorsal face, at the distal end. The striking platform survives at the proximal end, with a relatively diffuse bulb of percussion, although exhibiting a bulbar scar. Two sub-parallel removal scars are present on the dorsal face, struck from opposing directions. The second group consists of three tertiary flakes: two of a simi…

Three flakes of Chert debitage, of probable Later Neolithic or Bronze Age date. All three flakes are of a gritty, brown chert, with two being secondary, and the third tertiary. This latter flake has a single much more heavily patinated removal scar, suggesting the reuse of earlier material. All of the flakes exhibit relatively irregular flake-like removals, on one flake (tertiary) clearly struck from multiple directions. Although the nature of the chert ensures that the bulbs of percussion are relatively diffuse, where they survive there is no small 'lip' below the striking platform th…

Two flakes of flint debitage, probably of Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date, c. 3000-1000 BC. 1. Secondary flake, opaque grey/brown flint. Incomplete, missing its proximal end, lost to a natural break. Two sub-parallel negative removal scars present on dorsal face, one of which hinged. Short, semi-abrupt, sub-parallel retouch on dorsal face at distal end, with potential use related wear along right edge. Further retouch to ventral face, with short, semi-abrupt, scalar retouch in two places along right edge. Length 28.6mm; width 24.6mm; thickness 6.6mm; weight 4.77g. 2. Sec…

A flint primary flake probably of middle/late Bronze Age date (c. 1600 - c. 800 BC). Flint, pale grey, opaque, dorsal face covered by pale brown cortex. Broadly triangular in plan with convex edges and curved corners; rectangular to lozenge-shaped in cross-section. Primary working, hard hammer: the ventral face has a large bulb of percussion at the proximal end with concentric ripples radiating from the bulbar scar. Possible short, scaled, semi abrupt retouch on distal edge of dorsal face, but this is only in the cortex so is probably damage rather than retouch. Length 46.1mm, width 4…

A struck flint flake of probable Prehistoric date, potentially utilised as an expediency tool. An irregularly shaped tertiary flake of opaque black/grey flint. A striking platform survives at the proximal end with a diffuse bulb of percussion, but no 'lip' below the point of percussion. The distal end is lost to a natural break, but with probable use related wear on this edge. A number of irregular hinged removals on both the dorsal and ventral face appear more likely to be associated with later damage. Dimensions: length 35.7mm; width 34.7mm; thickness 7.5mm; weight 11.50g. Dat…
