Record ID: KENT-ACE89D
Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint core of probable late Mesolithic date c.8000-4000BC. Description: The core is very roughly conical. The striking has left substantial conchoidal fractures, which indicates use of hard hammer technology. The removals appear to be quite small and vary in size and direction There is a concave side which may relate to an area of lower quality flint with inclusions and faults which may be why the core was abandoned. The flint is heavily mottled grey colour except for the patch of beige cortex. Measurements: 37.9mm high. 36.7mm wide, 34.99mm deep and 31.68g in weight.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete flint end scraper of probable Mesolithic date. Description: The scraper is incomplete and broken across its' body. The scraper remains sub-triangular in shape with a wide sweeping scraping edge. The break appears to be across a significant fault within the flint and may have happen during production. The edge is formed from short scaled semi-abrupt retouch. The rest of the flaking appears to be haphazard and the bulb of percussion is missing due to the break caused by the fault. All retouch and flaking is focused on the dorsal face, other features visible on the ventral …

Object type: BORER
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint borer of uncertain date, probably Mesolithic to early Bronze Age. Description: The borer is thin in cross section but irregfular in plan, One end of the borer is flaked into a point, off centre. The borer point is formed from invasive scaled semi-abrupt retouch. Each of the long side of the borer has retouch alogn their edges defined as short scaled semi-abrupt. This may indicate the tool was multi use with a scraper edge in addition to the boring point The flint is very grey to black in colour. The flaking is very pronounced and likely indicates a hard hammer technique was us…

Object type: AXEHEAD ROUGHOUT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small, asymmetrical biface, all flake removals are hard hammer struck, of orange patinated flint, with some recent damage to both ends and one side revealing the original mottled grey flint. Possibly a trial piece or reject of an attempt at an axe or adze. No tranchet flake removal to the "cutting" edge noted. With no diagnostic features, a broad date range of Mesolithic to Neolithic is likely.

County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint Microlith of Mesolithic date (9,000-3,450 BC). The object is sub-rectangular in plan and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surface contains three predominant negative scars. The proximal end has been blunted. The distal end tapers to a point. The proximal, left and right hand edges have fine semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is flat with a single negative scar situated at the distal end. The flint is cream in colour. There is no retained cortex and the flake is therefore a tertiary flake. Length: 23.22mm, Width: 12.67mm, Thickness: 5.67mm, Weight: 1.5g.

A complete flint piece of Debitage of Mesolithic to Bronze Age date (9000-800 BC). The object is sub-rectangular in plan and Bi-convex in section. The dorsal surface has three predominant negative scars. Both the proximal and distal ends have been abruptly blunted. There is a projecting spur from the proximal left hand edge. The ventral surface is slightly convex and three negative scars. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. The flint is light grey in colour with dark grey inclusions throughout. Length: 34.63mm, Width: 15.70mm, Thickness: 7.86mm, Weight: 5.5g.

2 pieces of flint waste flakes (debitage) from flint tool production, likely dating from the early Mesolithic through to the bronze age c. 9000 - 1000BC. Description: 2 flakes, the smaller of which is a tertiary flake, irregular with a clear bulb of percussion and conchoidal rippling indicative of hard hammer technology. The 2nd is a secondary flake with some patination remaining, roughly rectangular, with subtle bulb of percussion and conchoidal rippling likely from the production of blades or bladelets. Both flints are mottled light grey-brown, although the smaller is lighter with a…

Pale grey flint serrated implement fragment. A small thin flake with long narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a slightly concave ventral surface.

Grey semi-translucent flint with cortex backed blade fragment. A flake with two parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a slightly concave ventral surface.

Grey flint core. A long narrow core with long parallel flakes struck from a flat platform all around by unidirectional working, leaving markedly concave scars. A dense white patina suggests the object has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment after its deposition. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC.

Pale grey flint debitage fragment. A flake with narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, but with recent damage which has notched the edge and probably detached the original ventral surface. One long edge is lightly battered. The extent of recent damage is indicated by interruption of a light misty patina arising from a period of exposure to a calcareous environment.
