Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Surrey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A large polished stone Neolithic macehead or shafthole adze, 157mm in length and weighing 1.1kg. The object is oval to sub-rectangular in plan, with lenticular or lozenge shaped side profile and oval cross section. The shaft hole is circular in plan with an 'hour-glass' profile, measuring 20 mm in diameter in the centre and expanding to 35.4 mm at each face, suggesting that it may have been drilled from both sides. Both ends have been worked into functional adze-like blades, one is 83mm wide, the other 72mm. This difference may indicate an orientation to the object, with the wider end…

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete Late Neolithic flint oblique arrowhead (2700 BC-2351 BC). This arrowhead has been made on a broken tertiary flake. The dorsal face has been retouched at each side edge and the removals are short and invasive, scaled and low angled. The ventral face has conchoidal ripples and one edge has been retouched. These removals are short parallel and low angled. The break forms one side and it would seem that the flake was chosen in order to take advantage of the break to form a side. A short length of the broken edge has been worked. Consequently, the implement is not a broken lea…

County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Neolithic flint flaked axehead (c. 4000 BC-c. 2351 BC). A transverse break has occurred about half way along its original length. This implement is now sub-square in plan and is pointed-oval ('lenticular') in cross-section. In plan, the sides flare slightly from the break to the curved cutting edge. The arrises are not very sharp. The axehead is mottled grey and pale orange with iron staining. The break is old. Length: 65.0mm; width: 51.5mm; thickness: 26.8mm. Weight: 106.22g.

Object type: HAMMERSTONE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete possible Hammer stone of probable Neolithic to Medieval date (3450 BC- AD 800). The object is a quartzite pebble with a rounded ovate form. The object is slightly flattened at one end and has some curvilinear gouges in its surface. These features indicate possible handling and wear. The casual use of glacial erratics as smoothers and sharpeners is especially characteristic of later Prehistory into the early medieval period. However, hammer stones are similar in appearance to this object. and promotes an extension of the possible date range obtaining for this example. The s…

A complete flint Disk Scraper of Neolithic date (3450-2100 BC). The object is sub-ovate in plan and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surface contains five predominant negative scars. The proximal and distal edges are blunted. The proximal, disal and right hand edges have semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is predominantly flat with the exception of a bulb of percussion situated at the proximal end. There are shallow ripples of percussion emanating from the bulb. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. The flint is cream in colour with light grey and …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Over half of a Neolithic ground and polished axe, of light and dark banded and mottled flint, the coarse inclusions are an off-white colour. The butt has been broken transversely in antiquity, the cutting edge is asymmetrical and highly polished, giving a sheen that fades into the rest of the axe. One large flake has been removed recently to the cutting edge, revealing the flint was indeed brown to begin with.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: North East Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Neolithic flint knife. The knife is made from a tertiary flake of dark brown-black coloured flint. The knife is slender, plano-convex in section, and tapers from the butt to the terminal. The lower third of the flint is smooth and bears a mid-brown patina. There is little or no retouch along the sides of the brown area, which might suggest that this item was once hafted. There is a flat striking platform at the proximal end. Low-angled, scaled retouch is visible along both sides and tip. The retouch covers the surface of the tip, but not the main body below.
