Record ID: DEV-811ACF
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint bladelet of probable late Meslothic date, c. 7000-4000 BC. The bladelet is a tertiary flake of patinated grey/white flint, sub-rectangular in plan and triangular in cross section. The striking platform survives at the proximal end with a diffuse bulb of percussion, two main parallel removal scars survive on the dorsal face, with no evidence of retouch. Dimensions: length 24.9mm; width 7.7mm; thickness 3.2mm; weight 0.58g. Dating a single undiagnostic flake with any degree of certainty is impossible, however, the small size and blade-like characteristics of the flint may sugge…

County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete flint bladelet of probable late Mesolithic date, c. 7000-4000 BC. A tertiary bladelet of brown-grey flint missing both its proximal and distal ends to natural breaks. There is no indication of retouch, although the scars from 3 parallel, longitudinal removals survive on the dorsal face. Dimensions: length 18.0mm; width 9.4mm; thickness 2.5mm; weight 0.54g. Dating a single undiagnostic flake with any degree of certainty is impossible, however, the small size and blade-like characteristics of the flint may suggest a mesolithic date.

Object type: TRANCHET AXEHEAD
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Gloucestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tranchet axehead or adze that is triangular in cross section. The underside has been achieved by a single flake that has a large bulb of percussion at the top. The sides are large, scaled flake removals that formed the overall shape of the piece, in the lower; running around the edge are dense, scaled and right angled flake removals that cover the lower quarter of the sides. The cutting edge (now damaged in post-loss) is formed by removal of an oblique flake across the end of the axe. Brown flint with creamy patches, there is a patina forming on the blade, the flaking that has damage…

Five Mesolithic blades, dating to the period 8300 BC - 4500 BC. 1) A Mesolithic oblong blade, secondary flake with a small, 5-10% of the total blade, cortex. The cortex is on the dorsal face, and is light brown, whilst the rest of the blade is dark brown in colour. It measures 49.37mm length, 14.23mm in width, 6.26mm thick and 7.01g. It has long, parallel, low angle retouch. The ventral face is very smooth. 2) A Mesolithic broadly triangular blade, tertiary flake with no cortex. The blade is dark brown in colour, with spots of light brown on the left hand side. It measures 34.45mm len…

Object type: FABRICATOR
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible Mesolithic to Neolithic fabricator, dating to the period 8000 BC- 1000 BC. It is oblong in shape, measuring 80.18mm in length and 24.39mm at maximum width, though it tapers to a point at either end. The thickness is 15.44mm. It is a secondary flake, as a small portion (no more than 10%) of the cortex survives on the dorsal face at the bottom. From the cortex, a light grey colour, the surrounding area is a dark grey in colour, though this lightens as the fabricator continues. The retouch is covering, and is scaled and low angle. The ventral face is completely smooth, and a li…

A complete flint piece of Debitage of Mesolithic to Bronze Age date (9000-1200 BC). The lithic is sub-triangular in plan and plano-concave in section. The dorsal has two predominant negative scars and corresponding arrises. The proximal end has been blunted and the distal end tapers to a retouched blunted edge. All edges have fine semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is slightly concave with some ripples of percussion emanating from the proximal end. The flint is dark grey in colour. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. Length: 43.28mm, Width: 26.86mm, …

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Mesolithic flint piercer, 30mm long, 10mm wide, 2mm thick and 0.9g in weight. Made on a very thin blade, the proximal end, in this case, has been abruptly retouched to form a point. The blade was struck from a unidirectional blade core as evidenced by the flake scars on the dorsla face. The flint is a translucent caramel brown that is starting to trun light grey with patination. The proximal end was chosen as the desired end to fashion the piercer because the distal end is too fragile due to cortex.
