Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint Late-Neolithic ripple flaked arrowhead (c. 3300 BC-c. 2100 BC). Description: This arrowhead is triangular in plan with a slightly concave base. The arrowhead appears to have had a barb on bottom left side although it appears to have beens snapped away. The arrowhead has been formed by a mixture of short scaled low-angle retouch save for half of the dorsal face where the retouch is formed from invasive parrallel low-angle retouch. The arrowhead is dark brown becoming lighter and more transluscent towarsds its edges. Measurements: 27.33mm long, 20.95mm wide, 5.29mm thi…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete stone Neolithic axehead (c. 4000 - c. 2200 BC), missing its butt end. Approximately two-thirds of the object survives. The axe is made from greenstone. It has suffered some plough damage but there is little sign of wear on the cutting edge. Overall, the axehead measures c.110 mm long, c. 68 mm wide and 35 mm thick. It weighs 390 g. This record has been produced based on a written record and photographs by Robert Smith of Sherwood Archaeology Society.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint flake or possible blade, probably dating to the Neolithic period (c. 4000-2200 BC). The object is composed of a light grey flint that is sub-triangular in plan with a pointed tip at one end and a broken square edge at the other. A raised central ridge runs the length of the dorsal surface from tip to base from which the faces slant downwards either side towards the bladed edges. The edges are slightly rounded and may have been retouched. The ventral surface is curved and smooth. The flint measures 41mm in length, a maximum of 18mm in width and a maximum of 6mm in thickness. It …

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Hard hammer struck flake, essentially tertiary, with only a small piece of cortex extant to the distal end of the dorsal face, this face is covered with the overlapping flake scars, semi-centripetally knapped and likely to have been struck from a biface rough-out (re-used debitage from an axe) or from a specially prepared core, i.e. of Levalloisian tradition. One edge is irregularly retouched and damaged, the other has four steeply retouched notches of ascending size: one at c. 2 mm, next c. 5 mm, next c. 8 mm, and the largest c. 8.5 mm but slightly deeper.

~~A Neolithic ground and polished axehead. The implement has been extensively chipped and ground into a long elongated sub-rectangular shape in plan that tapers from the cutting edge to the butt which terminates in a rounded point. The blade on the forward edge has been ground into an asymmetrical crescent, this is also the only section to have been polished. The stone is a dark green with an extensive creamy mottling. The axe dates from between circa 3500 BC to 2100BC

County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Broken segment of a larger tool, probably a side and end scraper of Neolithic date, c.4000-2000 BC. It was formed on a large blade of dark grey tanslucent flint. The proximal end and the right edge (seen from the ventral face with proximal end downwards) is entirely missing to a long break. Impact scars on the ventral in the middle of this break may suggest it was deliberate or may be the result of post deposition impact, sone removals from it on the dorsal face may be accidental damage. There is extensive retouch on both faces along the remaining side to give a straigh edge. Semi abru…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint with cortex spot, lithic implement. An irregular star-shaped flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side, and with an almost flat ventral surface. This initial working was followed by the development of a misty patina suggesting a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. The flake was reused, as evidenced by the trimming of patinated surfaces by short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect following the edges of the object, and by more limited angled scalar retouch of the initially ventral surface executed from the ventral aspect. Light crushing occurs…

Grey flint scraper, as kindly identified by the finder. A flake with irregular and convex flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a flat ventral surface. A pale grey patina extends over all surfaces, arising from a period of exposure to a calcareous environment, removed by short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect along the concave edge on one side, forming a notched scraper.

Neolithic - Esrly Bronze Age flint scraper dating to the period c. 4000 - 2351 BC. Struck off a primary flake, approximately 70% cortex remains on the dorsal face. The ventral face exhibits prominent, widely spaced ripple marks. The bulb of percussion has been removed by abrupt and semi-abrupt, scaled, semi-invasive retouch along one mesal edge and along the proximal and distal ends of the flake. The flint is dark grey with no visible inclusions.
