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…

Mesolithic to Neolithic (c. 7000 to 2350 BC) debitage: Two flakes knapped from flint. 1.The flake is knapped from a white/grey coloured flint which has a waxy texture. There is a small patch of white patina suggesting the flake has been knapped from a larger, older flake. It is trapezoidal with two vertical scars on the dorsal surface, and at least five scars on the ventral surface which are perpendicular to those on the dorsal surface. There is a small striking platform. It measures 22.45mm long, 15.58mm wide, 6.88mm thick and weighing 2.18g. 2.The flake is a sedonday flake with co…

Early Mesolithic to early Neolithic (8000 to 3500 BC) flint flake, which is an elongated triangle in plan and in section. The ventral surface has a small bulb of percussion, bulbar scar and conchoidal ripples. The dorsal surface has two vertical scars three other smaller scars. The laterial edges feel as if there are serrated, but this is probably due to damage rather than intention. The flint has a mottled dark to light grey colour. The flake measures 17.63mm in length, 11.26mm width, is 3.75mm thick and weighs 0.49g.

A small group of worked flints (14) of indeterminate later prehistoric date, c. 4000 BC-750 BC. The collection consists three very irregular worked-down flake cores, three blade-like flakes (each with a single dorsal arrise), a broken end-scraper on a flake fragment, four tertiary flakes and three shattered/broken flakes. Combined weight: 319g. All are heavily patinated white with iron staining, some heavily eroded.

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 …

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.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
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…

Distal section of a tertiary flint blade, probably of Mesolithic date, c. 8300 to 3500 BC. The proximal end and the bulb of percussion are missing. The break is irregular with a hinge fracture and irregular breaks on the back; there are possible evidence of retouch on the front but it may be damage rather than deliberate breaking. There is a second retouched notch however about half the way down where the flint changes from translucent grey to opaque buff-grey. This notch is formed by short semi-parallel shallow to abrupt retouch and suggests the piece was being reworked to from microl…

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 core, as kindly identified by the finder. A pyramidal or columnar core with long narrow parallel flakes removed almost all around by unidirectional working from a flat striking platform. A limited patch of patina may suggest the nodule had previously been exposed for a period to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC.

Grey flint with cortex patches, scraper. A thick chunk with large broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side by hard hammer, and with its opposite side [not here characterised as ventral as cortex remains on both the sides] stripped by multangular hard hammer working similarly removing large parallel flakes. The appearance of finer retouch probably arises from edge-on impacts and localised crushing of edges may arise from use of the tool. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 51mm, Width: 48.9mm, Thickness: 19.8mm, Weight: 59.72gms

Grey flint scraper, as kindly identified by the finder. A small thumbnail scraper, with a broad convex flake struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb on the ventral surface. Misty white patina has developed over the object, and is removed by very short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect. This may indicate the reuse of a small fragment of debitage.
