Two lithic implements of uncertain function. The first is quite large, is of tear-drop shape and has at least one retouched edge. It is approximately 10cm in length although it appears to be broken, potentially reducing its length marginally. The second has one curving edge with the opposite edge tapering to a point. The curved edge shows some signs of retouching. It is approximately 5cm in length. The date is 'later prehistoric', a time-period stretching from the Neolithic through to the Iron Age.

Object type: AXE
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A small body fragment of a cast, copper-alloy Sompting socketed axe of early Iron Age date. Only a small sub-rectangular section of the main body of the axe survives with the breaks indicating its fragmentation in antiquity. The reverse is plain but the obverse displays remains of two parallel ribs terminating one pellet-in-circlet each. There are parallels in Pendleton (1999), no. 125 and 130. The axe is likely to date from the eighth century BC. The length is 20.14mm, the width is 16.79mm, the thickness is 2.67mm and it weighs 4.00g. Dot Boughton notes: 'Complete Early Iron Age s…

Five objects which are possibly part of a Late Bronze Age hoard. 1: A roughly wedge-shaped copper-alloy fragment of metal working waste with irregular but relatively angular faces. At least two of the edges appear snapped though all faces are heavily patinated dark greenish-brown. Dimensions; 37.8mm x 31mm x 12.5mm and 41g in weight. 2: A fragment of a copper-alloy socket with short stub of a loop surviving. A moulding seam is visible above and below the loop stub. The relatively small oval mouth diameter suggests that this is probably from a socketed chisel or mortising tool though i…

A partially patinated flint tortoiseshell core of Mesolithic to Neolithic date. The core is formed from a patinated brown flint that is circular in form and has steep unpatinated edge retouch producing the typical tortoiseshell core form. The unpatinated flint is probably part of an earlier lithic implement or core that has been subject to subsequent re-use, as evidenced by the unpatinated retouch. It measures 53.89mm in length, 51.42mm in width, 20.24mm in thickness and 61.90g in weight. Tortoiseshell cores such as this are typically of Late Neolithic date, c.2,500-2,100 BC. However,…
