Record ID: SF-1419E3
Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint blade core of probable Mesolithic to Neolithic date, c. 6000-3000 BC. It is broadly cuboidal in form, demonstrating at least ten negative blade removals on its outer surfaces. Both ends have been rejuvenated and used as platforms, with opposing pairs of removals occuring. One platform is flanked by a patch of cortex which now covers c. 10-15% of the entire object's surface, while the other demonstrates a crushed area abutting several failed blade removals with overhanging step fractures resulting from an inadequate knapping angle. Preserved in fairly fresh condition wit…

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary soft hammer struck blade, possibly from a single platform core, of white/light grey and black patinated mottled grey flint. The distal end is transversely broken in antiquity, Small areas of recent damage to both lateral edges show the flint was originally mid-grey in colour. One edge not recently damaged shows fine use wear, possibly from use as a cutting impliment. Likely to be Mesolithic to Early Neolithic, 10,000 to 3,000 BC.

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint piece of Debitage of Mesolithic to Bronze Age date (9000-1200 BC). The lithic is sub-triangular in plan and plano-convex in plan. The dorsal surface in convex with three predominant negative scars. The proximal edge is blunted while the distal end tapers to a point. All edges have rough abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is predominantly flat with the exception of two negative scars. The flint is light grey in colour with cream and dark grey inclusions/bands. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. Length: 32.04mm, Width: 18.46mm, Thickness: …

Complete flint blade, dating to the Mesolithic period (7000 - 4000 BC). The object is rod-shaped and slightly convex, with the dorsal face curving out. The flint is almost D-shaped in section. One of the long edges is retouched with short, abrupt and parallel flaking. The retouch does not extend all the way to the top or bottom tip and the retouched edge curves in slightly, while the opposite edge is almost straight. There is a white scar of percussion on the ventral face. Otherwise, the object is dark grey in colour with small white spots along the long, unretouched edge. The length o…

County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint bladelet of probable late Meslothic date, c. 7000-4000 BC. The bladelet is a tertiary flake of patinated grey/white flint, sub-rectangular in plan and triangular in cross section. The striking platform survives at the proximal end with a diffuse bulb of percussion, two main parallel removal scars survive on the dorsal face, with no evidence of retouch. Dimensions: length 24.9mm; width 7.7mm; thickness 3.2mm; weight 0.58g. Dating a single undiagnostic flake with any degree of certainty is impossible, however, the small size and blade-like characteristics of the flint may sugge…

An incomplete flint bladelet of probable late Mesolithic date, c. 7000-4000 BC. A tertiary bladelet of brown-grey flint missing both its proximal and distal ends to natural breaks. There is no indication of retouch, although the scars from 3 parallel, longitudinal removals survive on the dorsal face. Dimensions: length 18.0mm; width 9.4mm; thickness 2.5mm; weight 0.54g. Dating a single undiagnostic flake with any degree of certainty is impossible, however, the small size and blade-like characteristics of the flint may suggest a mesolithic date.

Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Gloucestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tranchet axehead or adze that is triangular in cross section. The underside has been achieved by a single flake that has a large bulb of percussion at the top. The sides are large, scaled flake removals that formed the overall shape of the piece, in the lower; running around the edge are dense, scaled and right angled flake removals that cover the lower quarter of the sides. The cutting edge (now damaged in post-loss) is formed by removal of an oblique flake across the end of the axe. Brown flint with creamy patches, there is a patina forming on the blade, the flaking that has damage…

Object type: FABRICATOR
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible Mesolithic to Neolithic fabricator, dating to the period 8000 BC- 1000 BC. It is oblong in shape, measuring 80.18mm in length and 24.39mm at maximum width, though it tapers to a point at either end. The thickness is 15.44mm. It is a secondary flake, as a small portion (no more than 10%) of the cortex survives on the dorsal face at the bottom. From the cortex, a light grey colour, the surrounding area is a dark grey in colour, though this lightens as the fabricator continues. The retouch is covering, and is scaled and low angle. The ventral face is completely smooth, and a li…
