Record ID: SUR-438658
Object type: MICROLITH
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Surrey
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A group of three Mesolithic flints comprising the third group from this site. The worked flint comprises: 1. Scraper, mottled grey flint 53.67x34.53mm 2. Truncated Mesolithic blade, light grey flint 38.20 x 10.62mm 3. Microlith with obliquely backed point possibly early Mesolithic as it is long and narrow 31.31 x 7.03mm Dr Kevin Leahy observes: The latter two objects appear to be obliquely blunted flint points of Early Mesolithic date.

Record ID: BH-9B5F56
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint pickaxe, probably dating from the Mesolithic period (c. 10,000 BC to c. 4,001 BC). This would appear to be a double-ended implement, with a pick at one end and an axe-like blade at the other. Most of the surface of the original nodule has been removed, but one side in particular retains a significant portion of its cortex. The narrowest point is at the pick end, where the surfaces have been deliberately sloped to point, which exhibits signs of wear. The sides gradually diverge from this point, the implement reaching a maximum width approximately one third of the way…

Record ID: BH-4C0382
Object type: MICROLITH
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Central Bedfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A Mesolithic flint microlith. The piece is sub-triangular, with a horizontal break (possibly deliberate) at the wider end. A longitudinal ridge extends down the centre of the dorsal surface, creating a triangular profile. Blunting appears to be confined to the longer side, where it has occurred along the entire length. The point has been cut off, removing the bulb-of-percussion, the original position of which is indicated by the direction of the ripples on the ventral surface. The flint is patinated and bluish-grey. Length: 25.4mm; width: 12.8mm; thickness: 2.1mm; weight: 0.62g.

Record ID: IOW-83889C
Object type: ADZE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An almost complete Mesolithic to Early Neolithic flint adze or axehead (c. 10000 BC-c. 3500 BC). This implement is sub-rectangular in plan and sub-triangular in cross-section. One face has been entirely knapped and the other face has about 70% cortex. The flaking at the cutting edge end is long and short, scaled and semi-abrupt. The cortex is grey and buff and the flaked areas have a grey patina with creamy mottling and some iron staining. A modern chip near the butt end on the cortex reveals that the flint is dark grey. Length: 157.0mm; width: 60.9mm; thickness: 37.5mm. Weig…

Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Mesolithic knapped flint core, roughly cylindrical in shape with one prepared striking platform at one end. Although the platform is roughly oval, there are multipile facets around the edge, mostly anguler and broken. The surface has a white craze cracking which is the result of being burnt and this burning has also resulted in several sections cracking away including the distal end, leaving characteristic jagged, hackly, often concave, surfaces. The remaining surface shows evidence of a number of parallel blades having been removed from all around the sides. It is 35.4mm long, 30.…
