Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete Neolithic or Bronze Age flint scraper (c. 4000 BC- c. 801 BC). This scraper is made on a primary flake with a striking platform. The dorsal face is mainly covered in cortex and the removals are short, parallel and semi-abrupt. The ventral face has a bulb of percussion and very low ripples which are barely visible. Removals on the ventral face are short, parallel and semi-abrupt. The distal end has been battered and also retouched where the removals are short, parallel and abrupt. The cortex is light brown. The ventral face and the battered surface at the distal end is blui…

A complete Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age flint scraper (c. 2700 BC-c. 1600 BC). This implement is sub-triangular in plan and cross-section and has been made on a tertiary flake. At the proximal end there is a striking platform. The dorsal face has four major flake removal scars and has been retouched around the distal end. The removals are short, parallel and semi-abrupt. However, a small area is scaled. The ventral face has a low bulb of percussion with a prominent percussion scar and very low ripples. This scraper is reddish brown and shiny overall. The arrises are sharp on b…

A complete possible Neolithic flint implement, possibly knife (c. 4000 BC-c. 2351 BC). This implement is an elongated sub-oval shape, sub-triangular in cross-section. The dorsal face has been flaked but about a third of the surface at the proximal end is mainly covered in cortex. The edges have been retouched with short abrupt, parallel and sub-parallel removals. However, at the left edge (as viewed) adjacent to the cortex, the removals are very crude. The ventral face is undulating and has four major flake removals. The arrises are sharp on both faces This implement is grey with a …

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Gwynedd
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A broken axe head. The find represents the cutting edge end of a Neolithic polished axe head belonging to the Group VII (Graig Lwyd) classification. It is sub-rectangular in plan; tapering towards a transverse break at the point the axe was likely hafted. It seems likely this break occurred in antiquity. In section it is sub-ovate with flattened sides. The blade, mostly intact, bares evidence of use, and has retained a defined edge. The faces of the axe are defined by marks and fractures which vary in intensity. One face bears deeper scars than the other. The axe belongs to the Grou…

Plano convex struck flint flake, 41.9mm in length. One side demonstrates working, the other is flat, with a single bulb of percussion. There is evidence for a striking platform demonstrating removal from a core at the thick end. There is no evidence of subsequent retouch, suggesting use as a simple cutting flake. The tip has broken off.

A flint knife. The knife is sub-oval with a rounded squared proximal end and has a largely plano convex cross section. The dorsal face shows covering, scaled, low angle and semi-abrupt flaking. The scars across the central ridge are broader with smaller scars around the margins. The ventral face is smooth and flat towards the distal end with a sight off centre bulb at the proximal end, several large flakes have been removed at the left side proximal end probably an attempt to remove the bulb of percussion. The original colour of the flint is a semi- translucent mid-brown, however the k…

A small flaked axehead. The axe is cordate in shape, oval in cross section and is bifacially worked. Both faces show invasive covering flaking with some flakes terminating in hinge fractures indicating probable use of a hard hammer. The flint is opaque and with a light beige, chalky patina, with multiple areas of less siliceous honey-coloured flint. Areas of ferrous staining are visible mainly on the flake ridges. A remnant of a the striking platform is evident at one end and it is possible the axe was made on a large, naturally fractured piece. Date: Neolithic - c. 4000 - 2350 BC Dime…
