Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Neolithic flint lithic implement dating to the period c. 4000-2100 BC. This is a secondary flake as it retains <20% cortex on its total surface area. The dorsal face has negative flake scars from previous flake removal, and a number of mis-strikes at the proximal end next to the striking platform. It is therefore possible that this is a core rejuvination flake. There is also a small amount of retouch at the distal end, probably to make the flake into a borer or piercer. The ventral face has a bulb of percussion at the proximal end and conchoidal ripples radiating towards the dista…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A late Neolithic flint axehead, dating to the period c.2750-2350 BC. The axhead is lenticular in cross section and in plan is sub-ovoid. It expands in width from the butt end towards the blade. There are negative flake removal scars on most of the surface on both sides. Both faces exhibit a polished area at the blade end which narrows into the centre. A chip is present on the blade edge. The patination of the chip indicates that it occured during use, rather than during deposition. One edge has a later chip, probably from post depositional damage. The axehead is very light grey in colo…
