County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pale buff flint lithic implement. A thin curved flake with long narrow parallel bladelets struck from its dorsal side and with a concave ventral surface. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect trims the narrow end. Very short abrupt retouch also executed from the dorsal aspect follows the longest curved edge. Further apparent retouch may arise from fortuitous edge-on impacts. The finder saw this object as a microlith; however, Dr Kevin Leahy kindly comments: '... I'm not happy with this as a microlith. I agree that the retouch looks OK but this is not a projecti…

Grey-buff flint serrated implement fragment. A small flake with long parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a slightly wavy concave ventral surface. Extremely short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows one straight edge, forming serrations that are more easily felt than observed. Creamy patina with light iron staining covers the object except for at one broken end, suggesting it has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment after its deposition.

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lithic implement of uncertain type dating to the early Mesolithic period, c.9000 - 8000 BC. Description: The tool is roughly rectangular with one pointed end and triangular in cross-section. It is obliquely blunted with short scaled abrupt retouch along one edge. it is a light grey tansluscent colour. Measurements: 30.74mm long, 12.65mm wide, 6.58mm thick and 2.64g in weight. Discussion: Despite clear retouch the exact identity of this tool is uncertain its small size and probable relationship to the microlith industries of the Mesolithic make a Mesolithic date most likely.

An irregular flint end-scraper of uncertain date, possibly of Mesolithic date (c.9000-4000 BC). Description: The scraper is irregular shaped and formed from a utilised secondary flake which has also been utilised as a core producing small mesolithic bladelets. It is very think and rhomboid in cross section. Cortex is heavily present ont he right edge of the scraper. The flaking along both facing edges, the bulb of percussion and conchoidal scarring (rippling) on the ventral face is very pronounced which suggest hard hammer technology. There is very short retouch along the distal edge …

An irregular flint end-scraper of uncertain date, possibly of Mesolithic to Bronze Age date (c.9000-1000 BC). Description: The scraper is irregular shaped, with one rounded end and one pointed shouleder end. It is formed from a secondary flake with some beige cortex remaining at the pointed end. The flaking along both facing edges, the bulb of percussion and conchoidal scarring (rippling) on the ventral face is very pronounced which suggest hard hammer technology. The majority of the edges have short, scaled semi-abrupt retouch struck from the dorsal and ventral faces. the pointed lo…

A Mesolithic to early Bronze-Age button/thumb-nail scraper, Description: The scraper is small and rounded in plan. It is made from a tertiary flake with poor flaking. The scraper edge is formed from invasive scaled semi-abrupt to abrupt retouch around most of the edge save for the striking platform. The dorsal face has varied flaking from previous removals and forming of the scraping edge. The bulb of percussion is quite shallow despite having quite substantial conchoidal rippling. The flint is a very dark grey colour. Measurements: 27.56mm long, 28.11mm wide, 8.85mm thick and 7.19g…

Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete Mesolithic to Early Neolithic chert adze or axehead (c. 10000 BC-c. 3500 BC). This implement is an elongated oval shape in plan. In side view it is pointed at the butt end and oblique at the cutting edge. The dorsal face is characteristically humped. Flake removal scars cover all surfaces and there is no cortex. Particularly large flakes have been removed on the ventral face at its mid point, possibly to facilitate hafting. The ridge on one side is mildly 'S'-shaped and the other ridge is straighter. The cutting edge appears to have old damage at its apex. The implement is…

County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete antler mattock of a style typical in Mesolithic artefacts. These hafted tools, although referred to as mattocks, can also be used as a pick-like or hammer tools. Similar examples have previously found in England including at the site of Star Carr. The example recorded here would have been a hammer variant. It is now incomplete and no haft remains. The remains of this artefact weights 133.64g. It has a length of 135.3mm, maximum width of 44.7mm and thickness of 67.2mm. The base of the antler is present but worn with only approximately one-quarter of the circumference havi…

A incomplete perforated stone object of Mesolithic or Neolithic date, c.9000-c.2200BC. Description: The mace head is oval in plan and has a central perforation from one side to the other. This perforation is the typical hour glass shape. The surface of the mace has been polished and is very smooth to the touch. The object has fractured and left a rough section on side covering roughly a third of that side. Much of the circumference of the mace is worn and abraded and looks to have been caused by use rather than by post-depositional wear. The stone is a dark red-brown colour and is pro…

Later Mesolithic to Neolithic (4000 - 2100BC) debitage in the form of a notched flake: Possible chert tertiary flake which is sub-rectangular with a angled proximal end. One lateral edge has fine low-angled retouch on the dorsal surface forming a notch. The other lateral edge, on the ventral surface has short, stepped semi-abrupt re-touch. The dorsal surface has multiple linear scars. The ventral surface has conchoidal ripples but no bulb of percussion, but it may have been truncated. The chert is a matte, mottled pink colour.

Object type: ADZE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete early mesolithic flint adze head, 10000-8000 BC. The adze has been made from a knapped flint nodule. There is still significant cortex coverage over the surface of the object. Flakes have been removed to create the cutting edge and to create the tapering profile of the adze head. It is possible that the piece is a roughout for an adze. The flake removals are large and in specific areas of the nodule. There is no retouch on the object. It measures 148.8mm long, 57.8mm at its widest point and 33.2mm at its thickest point. It weighs 356 grams.
