Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Mesolithic flint core, 9000 to 4000 BC. It is a cylindrical in general form, similar in width all the way down but D shaped in section, having been worked mostly on one face. That face has scars from long parallel blades being removed with the remains of a single striking platform at one end. The other face it is mostly unworked with a natural break at one end which has removed most of the striking platform, the rest being natural cortex. Most of the core is white with brown mottling, the dark grey mottled flint showing in a small area only. Length 50.6mm Width 27.6mm Thickness 14.…

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A tertiary flint blade. The presence of a very slight bulb of percussion suggests soft hammer production. A conchoidal fracture can be seen on the dorsal face. Two other angles have also been struck from the strike platform forming a sub-triangular cross-section across the blade. The stike platform is unclear suggesting that it may have been chipped or damaged during deposition. Two parallel blades have been removed from this piece of flint, one half seems to have been removed in two sections, one above the other. There is no evidence of retouch. The blade is thin enough to be translu…

County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped lithic implement of Mesolithic date, circa 7000 - 4000 BC. The implement is a piece of debitage, or waste material, produced during the knapping process. It is sub-rectangular in plan and sub-D-shaped in section. The bulb of percussion and striking platform no longer remain and the ventral surface is smooth though displays faint ripples of percussion. The dorsal surface is irregular with numerous flakes of varying sizes having been removed. A small notch is present on the right mesial edge along which abrupt retouch is present. The flint is a light greyish-brown …

A complete knapped lithic implement of Mesolithic date, circa 7000 - 4000 BC. The implement is a piece of debitage, or waste material, produced during the knapping process. It is sub-rectangular in plan and sub-D-shaped in section. The bulb of percussion and striking platform remain on the ventral surface from which ripples of percussion radiate.

County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped lithic implement of late Mesolithic to early Neolithic date, circa 7000 - 3500 BC. The implement is an awl or piercer formed from a secondary flake which is sub-ovate in plan and section with a small pointed projection extending from one edge. The striking plat from and bulb of percussion are present on the ventral surface along with radiating ripples of percussion. The dorsal surface is irregular with numerous flakes having been removed. Short, abrupt, scaled retouch is present around the edges of the point extending into a notch to the right of the point. This may…

Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped lithic implement of late Mesolithic to early Neolithic date, circa 7000 - 3500BC. The implement is a scraper formed from a primary flake which is ovate in plan and D-shaped in section. The ventral surface is smooth with no bulb of percussion or striking platform remaining though clear ripples of percussion are visible. The dorsal surface has been extensively worked and displays extensive short, semi-abrupt, scaled retouch around the distal end. The flint is a dark brownish-grey colour with lighter chalky inclusions. The implement is 31.1mm long, 24.4mm wide, 13.3…

Object type: FABRICATOR
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped lithic implement of Mesolithic date, circa 7000 - 4000 BC. The implement is a fabricator which is ovate in both plan and section. The ventral surface is fairly smooth with visible ripples of percussion. The dorsal surface has been extensively worked displaying covering semi-abrupt, scaled retouch. The flint is a pale orangey-yellow colour displaying possible repatination from an iron rich environment. The implement is 43.9mm long, 20.7mm wide, 7.9mm thick and weighs 8.1g. Fabricators may have been used in leatherworking though other suggestions include strike-…

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Mesolithic to Neolithic retouched flake, dating 10,000-2,350 BC. The flake is triangular in shape with evidence of retouch on both sides. Faint traces of a bulb of percussion are visible on one side, though few other indicators of knapping are present. One tip of the object also appears to have broken away, probably during knapping. Due to the incompleteness of this object it is difficult to further specify a period of production. Dimensions: length: 35.28 mm; width: 44.46 mm; thickness: 10.74 mm; weight: 20.12g.

Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A recorticated tertiary flint core. This core has a sub-trapezoidal to sub-triangular cross-section and sub oval shape with a single flaking direction. It was used in the production of broad blades suggesting an Early Mesolithic or Early Neolithic date. Possible presence of core dressing. Probably a Clark (1960) Type A2. Weight 11.41g, length 50.3mm, maximum width 17.9mm, maximum thickness 11.6mm. Finder's reference: SP6.

Object type: PERFORATED OBJECT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete stone perforated object, dating to from the Mesolithic to the Bronze Age (c.9,000-1,600 BC). The stone is broadly square in plan, but tapers slightly to a terminal with a worn break. A circular concave area is present on each side just before the break, resulting in the oval cross section narrowing at the centre. This suggests that the stone has been partially perforated. One indent has a dark brown patina on some areas. The other terminal is oval in cross section and also terminates in a worn break. Stuart Ogilvy (geologist) has looked at the stone and belives it is a s…

Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A large flint core of early Mesolithic or early Neolithic date. The core is cylindrical with one platform and parallel striking of narrow blades. One face of the object has narrower scars from blade removal while on the opposite face wider blades have been removed down the length of the core with shorter narrower blades removed from above (towards the striking platform) at a diagonal angle to the lower removals. The removed flints appear to have been blades. There is no visible sign of platform dressing. A strip of light cream cortex remains along the length of one side of the core…

Object type: MICROBURIN
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Highly patinated probable microlith of late Mesolithic date 6500-3500 BC. The microlith is sub-triangular in plan and formed from the very base of a snapped flint blade. There is no evidence for retouch or secondary working Microliths have multiple uses from being set to form harpoons and arrows too small saws and other utilitarian tool types. It is possible gived the pointed nature of the tip of the flint that this may possibly have been a Microburin like tool - the flint is too heavily eroded to be sure - there is no evidence for detailed retouch around the tip which may substant…

Record ID: DENO-1A2E18
Object type: TRANCHET AXEHEAD
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint tranchet axehead from the early Mesolithic period (c.9000 - 8000 BC). The flint is a dark brownish-grey and fairly opaque with elements of the cortex visible. The axe is crudely worked, with a rounded cutting edge, roughly parallel sides and a pointed butt. It has a broadly triangular cross-section. The flint appears to be in the second stage of being worked due to the patches of cortex on its butt and and its ventral and dorsal faces. Also, a soft hammering technique seems to have been used, identifiable by the weak ripple marks and low bulbs of percussion. The broad shape of…
