Object type: AXEHEAD ROUGHOUT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Neolithic polished flint axehead roughout, probably dating to c. 4000-2400 BC. The axehead is made of a dark grey flint with frequent paler grey/brown patches and areas of cortex on the left edge of the dorsal face and the right edge of the ventral. The axehead is broadly sub-rectangular in shape, tapering from 47.7mm wide behind the blade edge to a squat, rounded sub-triangular butt, 29.1mm wide. It has a pointed oval cross section, at its thickest point around 3/4 of the way down its length at 27.8mm thick. The axehead is missing the edge of the blade itself, with a diagonal line …

A Neolithic flint axehead roughout, probably dating to c. 4000-2400 BC. The object is made of a dark brown/grey flint visible at more recent breaks but is is almost completely covered in a solid white patina, at the distal (butt) end of the dorsal face this surface is still covered in a layer of cortex, discoloured slightly green in patches. The flint has been bifacially worked, with flakes removed in a variety of directions and with a striking platform surviving at the apparently unfinished butt. A number of short removal scars struck from the edge terminate in negative hinge fractur…

A chip from a Mesolithic to Neolithic flint core dating to the period c. 8000 -2350 BC. The remaining piece retains no cortex, and is irregular in shape with a convex ventral surface formed of a very large percussion bulb. The core had two striking platforms roughly at right angles to each other, and at least three negative flake scars from previous flake removals, the size and shape of which suggests that this core was used for the production of blades or bladelets. The flint itself is dark grey with light grey and off-white inclusions. It is 25.00mm in length, with a maximum wid…

A flint end scraper of probable Neolithic date (c. 4000 - 2350 BC). The piece is struck off a tertiary flake / blade as there is no cortex remaining. The genral form is a broad, short, thick blade. The dorsal surface exhibits two negative flake scars from previous removals. There are breaks at the proximal end which appear to have removed the bulb of percussion although part of a strikeing platform remains. There is sub-parallel, semi abrupt retouch running along the distal end, long in the ceetre becoming short at the sides. Indents down both sides appear to be accidental damage rath…

Knapped flint barbed and tanged arrowhead dating from the Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age (c. 2700 BC - c.1600 BC). The arrowhead is bifacially worked and sub-triangular in plan with slightly convex sides and a small chip at the point. There are two round ended notches in the base, flanking the central tang with a barb at either side. The tang is wider and longer than the barbs and has a rounded end. One barb has lost it's tip, the other is complete with angled ends coming to a point at the base (obliquely shaped). The arrowhead has semi-invasive semi-abrupt parallel retouch down b…

Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Knapped flint arrowhead, probably a lead-shaped example dating from the Early Neolithic to Early Bronze Age (4000-1000 BC). The flint is light grey on the upper part, darker towards the lower end. One edge is broken along almost the entire side, from just below the top point. A straight break across the base has removed the end. The remaining edge is unusual as it is concave below the widest point but this may be due to later chips as chipping has created a more adbrupt edge here than on the rest of the arrowhead. Both faces have been worked with shallow, invasive sub-parallel retouch…

A knapped re-touched flint flake possibly later Neolithic to Bronze Age in date. A prominent bulb of percussion with large bulb scar and clear ripples of percussion are on the ventral face. There is original cortex surviving across the distal end. Aris and ripples on the dorsal face suggest multi-directional previous removals. There is an area of semi-abrupt short subparallel retouch at the proximal end of the right edge seen from the ventral face, becoming longer towards the centre of the flake. The flake is dark brown flint with a patch of lighter brown at the proximal end. It is 40…

A tertiary waste flake of probable Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age date. The flake is an irregular quadrilateral shape with a diagonal break at the distal end. The ventral face is curved and smooth with evident ridges down its length due to a heavy strike. There is some bulbar scarring. The dorsal face is broadly flattened as a result of numerous multi-directional removals, some breaking off due to flaws in the flint, especially at the proximal end. There is no obvious retouching. The flake has a stained translucent orange/red colour with light-grey bands with a small area of cortex o…

A tertiary flake of probable Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age date, reworked for use probably as a scraper. The flake is an irregular quadrilateral shape. The ventral face is curved and smooth with evident ridges down its length due to a heavy strike. The striking platform is obscured by scars and losses due to flaws in the flint; the bulb is now unclear. The dorsal face has two major and two minor multi-directional removals giving it a broadly triangular cross section. There is possible retouch to the right hand dorsal edge/lefthand ventral edge for conversion into a basic side scrape…
