County: North Yorkshire

Neolithic flint adze. The adze has one convex worked side with the other side being flatter (but also worked). The tool is oval shaped in plan (and semi-circular in section) with the working end widening slightly. The other narrower end of the adze would have been hafted into a wooden handle and it would have functioned as a heavy-duty tool for cutting trees and woodworking. The adze weighs 159.95g and measures 118.5mm in length, 46mm in width and 27mm in thickness.

Lithic impliment: Mesolithic tranchet adze, dating 9000 to 6000 BC. There have been suggestions that tranchet adze continued in use into the Neolithic, however there is no direct evidence for this. The adze is an elongated oval in plan with a lenticular cross section with pointed edges. In profile the adze is sub-rectangular with elongated pointed blade end. The blade end shows no evidence of wear, however the blade end of adze could be restruck to form a new cutting edge. The rough shape of the adze was created using a hard hammer to remove the outer cortex of a flint nodule (however …

Part of an Early Neolithic greenstone adze blade, of sub-oval profile and lenticular section. The tool is polished on all surfaces, but has a number of damaged areas close to its edges, and is incomplete (the butt has broken away). Neither the blade edge nor the broken edge is still sharp. This adze fragment weighs 560g and measures 170mm in length, 101mm in width and 23.7mm in thickness. The complete tool would have been of considerable size. The stone is a blue-green colour and is likely to be a particular form of tuff known as 'greenstone', which has its source in Great Lang…

Mesolithic flint adze dating 9000 to 6000 BC. The rough shape of the adze was created using a hard hammer to remove the outer cortex of a flint nodule, however large amount of natural cortex survives on one edge of the adze. This roughout was then further shaped using covering removals. The edge without cortex, and the blade end have semi-abrupt removals to further shape the adze. The surface of the adze is covered in removals with scars and some impact ripples present where flakes were removed from the surface. The adze is sub-rectangular in plan with a lenticular cross section with p…

Mesolithic (9000-6000BC) knapped flint adze. The adze is an elongated oval in plan with a lenticular cross section with pointed edges. In profile the adze is sub-trapezoid with an elongated pointed blade end, and the upper surface is concave. The blade is slightly damaged and worn. The rough shape of the adze was created using a hard hammer to remove the outer cortex of a flint nodule, however a small amount of natural cortex survives on the upper surface. This roughout was then further shaped using covering removals. The surface of the adze is covered in removals with scars and some i…

Fragment of an early Neolithic polished stone tool – either an adze or axehead. The tool has been ground so that the areas of surface still surviving are smooth. There are quite large areas of damage on the tool; the blade edge is completely missing making the original size of the tool difficult to interpret. The tool weighs 146.77g and measures 83.95mm in length, 43.71mm in width and 26.87mm in thickness.

A complete flint Mesolithic adze. The axe is small (98mm long and 44mm wide). It is 21mm thick and weights 97.4g. It has parallel sides, a rounded distal end and flat proximal end. There is bifacial working. The dorsal surface retains some cortex. The two medial edges and the distal end have been retouched to form a cutting edge. It has a slightly curved, sub-triangular cross. The flint is dark grey with an orange/brown patination.

A Neolithic adze or chisel. This tool has roughly parallel sides with a narrowed butt end. The cutting edge is flatter and more narrow than the rest of the body. A core tool, this artefact shows roughed-out reduction along the bifacial plane and some finishing retouch along the bilateral edges. The adze or chisel is lenticular in section and retains a small percentage of cortex on the dorsal surfaces. Some recortication may be developing. This adze or chisel measures 152.43mm in length, 35.57mm in width and is 29.83mm thick. It weighs 201.7gms.

Incomplete greenstone (epidiorite) cushion macehead or shafthole adze, sub-oval in plan, tapering slightly towards the surviving end, and lozenge-shaped in profile and section. About half of the adze remains, including the blade end, and half of the shaft hole. Both ends would have been worked to form an edge which could have been used for chopping as well as hammering. The implement has been worked from a beach cobble and would have been collected from the coast. It would have then been pecked and ground into shape and the central hole bored by using sand and a drill.…

Probably an unfinished Mesolithic adze. It is rectangular in plan with a sub-triangular cross section. Two of the sides are almost completely covered in natural brown cortex, which cointains some fossilised remains in the form of short, curved lines which are possibly from a sponge. The third side has had flakes removed from the surface in several different directions, many of which have left hinged or overshot terminations. The flint is dark grey-black in colour, with small patches of light grey. It is 113.97mm long, 40.85mm wide, 33.02mm thick and it weighs 228.77 grams.

Incomplete metagabbroic greenstone adze, which has been petrologically analysed by Dr. Roger Taylor as part of the Clodgy Moor Project. More than half of the adze remains, including the blade end, and the recorder cannot be sure from the broken butt end how long the adze originally was, but it is tapering towards the butt end. The adze is tear-shaped in plan and plano-convex in profile and in section. The distinct curvature of one side of the blade, while the other side is flat, suggests that the implement was used as an adze. There are several fresh breaks to the adze which have pr…

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…
