A copper alloy post-medieval hair, dress or hat pin, probably dating to the period AD 1500-1800. The shank is made from drawn wire and the head is globular shaped apparently moulded around the shank. There is no decoration. The colour of the metal suggests a 17th century date, if not later.

Object type: VESSEL
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A sub-circular disc-like lead alloy object, probably a vessel repair ('pot-mend') of Roman to medieval date. The vessel mend is crudely made with the remains of a shank on one side - the opposing side is pitted and uneven. These objects are very hard to date without contextual information. Suggested date: AD 43-1500. For comparison see NLM-61DCBD

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint piercer made on a bladelet dating to the Late Upper Palaeolithic to Mesolithic period (c. 20,000-4,000 BC). The piercer has been made on a tertiary flake of a mottled orange-brown flint. The bulb is retained as is the small fragment of the platform. There are two flake scars on the dorsal surface. The lower half of the left hand edge of the dorsal side has been worked with soft hammer precussion, becoming more invasive towards the tip of the piercer, which has detatched, possibly during production but potentially after deposition.

A flint bladelet made of a tertiary flake of mottled orange-brown flint, dating to the Mesolithic period (c. 10,000-4,000 BC). The baldelet is broadly planoconvex with a narrowed distal end.

Object type: SIDE SCRAPER
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint side scraper on a thick flake of uncertain date - potentially the flake could be Palaeolithic but equally it could be later prehistoric. The secondary flake has been hard-hammer struck from a mottled orange-brown flint. There are additional ancient removals / edge damage on the right hand edge of the ventral surface, but there is also modern damage on the same edge.

A damaged plunging flake of probable Mesolithic date, c. 10,000 - 4,000 BC. The secondary flake has been hard-hammer struck from a mottled orange-brown flint core. There is a seam of quartz visible. Ancient flakes scars are evident on the dorsal surface but there is also modern damage to all surfaces. The flake has a wide central section that tapers towards either end while the dorsal side has a stepped profile.

A complete flint bladelet with a rubbed end dating to the Late Upper Palaeolithic or early Mesolithic period, c. 40,000 - 7,000 BC. The bladelet has been made from a tertiary flake of a mottled dark brown flint. Part of the platform has been retained and this also appears to have been rubbed, as has the distal end. There are thin flake scars over the dorsal surface. There is possible ancient reutilisation damage on the left hand edge.

Object type: END SCRAPER
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint end-scraper made on a thick flake of a brown-orange flint. The scraper is sub-square in plan and broadly rectangular in profile, although the large bulb is retained on the reverse. There has been some recortication of the scraper, with this extending over the hard hammer retouching on the right side of the distal end. There are more modern removals (cutting through the patina of the recortication) to the left hand edge. This piece is hard to date as its execution is generally undiagnostic, however it is potentially Palaeolithic (c. 450,000-10,000 BC).

A flint crested bladelet or crested flake of probable Mesolithic date (c. 10,000-4000 BC). The bladelet has been made on a secondary flake of a grey-brown, semi-translucent flint. Some cresting is visible on the dorsal side. The bulb is retained although incomplete, probably as a result of modern damage.
