A complete mesolithic flint adze head, 8300-4500BC. The object is a short tapering knapped flint piece, it has a lozenge shaped section that is most visible at the widest end.

Mesolithic flint adze of 'Hassocks adze' type (Butler 2005, 103, Fig. 42.4). The adze was made from a flint nodule, its surfaces are now obscured by white recortication. An area of original cortex survives on one side and the flat face bears a cavity containing quartz crystals. Heavy flaking was carried out from the flat face producing a keeled section. Flaking has produced a narrowing around the mid point of the adze which is a feature of these implements. One end is pointed, the other, damaged in antiquity, was bifacially worked to produce an edge. Length 195mm, Width 59, Thickness …

The central section of the adze is narrowed, presenting a slight waist. No parallels have been found for this object although it could be compared to the …
