Record ID: SUSS-644AA4
Object type: ADZE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint adze or pick, probably of Mesolithic date. The adze is knapped from flint with some cortex remaining at the butt end, covering c.20% of one side. It is sub-triangular in plan with straight tapering sides and a rounded blade and butt. In cross section it is also sub-triangular flattening to a pointed oval at the blade. One face is flat at the butt end where it is covered in cortex it has a convex curve through the remainder. The other has a pronounced central ridge which is particularly acute at the butt end then flattens at the blade. It has been shaped with large, shallow flakes…

Object type: ADZE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete and partially knapped Mesolithic flint object, probably an adze, but possibly a large core (c. 8300-3500 BC). The remains of the object consist of what looks like the butt-end of an adze and possibly a third to a half of the small adze body; it has been knapped on all sides with long blade removals and smaller removals near to the butt. It is missing a portion of its body and potentially its cutting edge; a tranchet or lateral flake cannot be identified to confirm this object as a tranchet adze, as it would appear on the blade end, now missing. Typical to adzes of this…

Object type: ADZE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A heavily worked down possible adze or axe of Late Mesolithic or Early Neolithic date. The piece demonstrates intense flaking on both faces with the use of hard and soft hammers visible. Heavily probably dorsal arrises are visible on both faces, while the cutting edge is slightly asymetrical in profile. A small amount of cortex is visible at the butt end of the axe. The blade has been reworked with direct removals that extend into the main body of the axe, while some trimming and re-shaping is visible down the sides of the piece. Measurements; Maximum length (mm): 65.85 Maximum wi…

Record ID: SUSS-9199B5
Object type: ADZE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete early mesolithic flint adze head, 10000-8000 BC. The adze has been made from a knapped flint nodule. There is still significant cortex coverage over the surface of the object. Flakes have been removed to create the cutting edge and to create the tapering profile of the adze head. It is possible that the piece is a roughout for an adze. The flake removals are large and in specific areas of the nodule. There is no retouch on the object. It measures 148.8mm long, 57.8mm at its widest point and 33.2mm at its thickest point. It weighs 356 grams.

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. This end tapers sharply to a point formed by a tranchet strike that has been further shaped down. There is a longitudinal ridge running the length of both the borsal and ventral sides. The distal end of the object curves slightly giving the piece an asymetrical appearance. The object is made from a pale grey flint. The object appears to be complete but does not seem to be finished. Length: 133.15mm Width: 42.…

Object type: ADZE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A bifacially worked prehistoric flint tool, possibly dating to the later Neolithic period (c. 2700-2351 BC). This tool is similar to 'Acheulian' handaxes of the Lower Palaeolithic, in that it is bifacially worked and roughly piriform in plan; however, its finely worked sub-oval cutting edge and elongated form, coupled with its asymmetrically bi-convex cross-section suggests a Neolithic date. Similar to adzes from the Neolithic period, this tool has one 'humped' or arched face with a flatter, albeit worked, opposite face. The tool's distal end has been modified, possibly for hafting, wh…

Object type: ADZE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Mesolithic flint adze head, dating to the period c.8000-4500BC. The object is sub- triangular in plan, tapering from the cutting edge to the butt. The cutting edge appears tohave been formed by the removal of a single tranchet flake. The adze has a slightly curved profile, with one side being shorter than the other, giving the butt a slight hooked shape.
