Record ID: SUSS-C4B9F5
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Neolithic knapped flint axe, consisting of the broken butt-end of the axehead (c. 3500-2100 BC). Type A. The remains are sub-triangular in plan, with a narrowed, almost pointed butt end and a small portion of the axe body. The axehead has been well-knapped over both surfaces and there are extensive covering removals. It has a lentoid cross-section. A break, likely due to use, has fractured the axehead and the latter portion of the tool including the rounded cutting edge is now missing; the remaining portion probably consists of between 1/3-1/2 of the original length, but…

Object type: MICROBURIN
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A group of twenty flint Mesolithic bladelet fragments created through transverse lateral or diagonal snapping, probably microburins - waste from the production of microliths from bladelets. The artefacts measure between c. 11.1 and 24.3mm long. They are generally sub-rectangular, or sub-trapezoidal. Most of the pieces have either two or three longitudinal scars on the dorsal face giving them a triangular or trapezoidal cross-section respectively; on others there is further working. On many the bulb of percussion is visible; others are identifiably distal. The colours range through the…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A group of nineteen flint Mesolithic bladelet fragments created through transverse lateral or diagonal snapping, possibly used as microlithic components of larger objects. The artefacts measure between c. 12.6 and 28.5mm long. They are generally sub-rectangular, by definition. Most of the pieces have either two or three longitudinal scars on the dorsal face giving them a triangular or trapezoidal cross-section respectively; on others there is further working. The colours range through the greys, with one a browner hue in places. Only on one piece (that top left on the image) is there …

County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A group of ten flint Mesolithic bladelets, four of which truncated after snapping. The complete bladelets measure between c. 34mm (+/- c. 1.5mm). Most of the pieces have either two or three longitudinal scars on the dorsal face giving them a triangular or trapezoidal cross-section respectively; on others there is further working. The colours range through the greys, with one a browner hue in places. There is no evidence of retouching. On two cortex remains.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint scraper of sub-circular form of probable Neolithic date. The ventral face has a prominent removal scar at the bulb of percussion. There are five main longitudinal flake scars on the dorsal face. The main area of retouch is on the dorsal face on the right hand edge, fairly central (mesial). This flint is a light grey-brown colour.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible Mesolithic flint scraper of irregular five-sided form. The ventral face has some fairly heavy angled removals, possibly post-depositional damage. There are three longitudinal flake scars on the dorsal face. The main area of retouch is on the dorsal face on the right hand edge, some quite abrupt, with a remnant of cortex above. There are further, less obvious retouch marks on the distal end (left side) of the same face. This flint is largely grey-brown, with a light-grey area.

Record ID: HAMP-2FDCD4
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Forty-nine pieces of tertiary Mesolithic flint waste (debitage) from an assemblage, not diagnostically blade forms or core rejuvenation flakes. They have a wide variety of shapes and sizes, but none exhibit any obvious retouch. They are mostly of light or mid-grey flint, with some bluer and browner hues. Most are between 20 and 30mm long, with some small chippings and some larger flakes (up to 58.6mm). A few pieces show the crazed surface characteristic of fire cracking.

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A pair of Mesolithic tertiary waste flakes with evidence of retouching. One is broadly L-shaped (38.3 by 34.6 by 13.1mm; W.: 11.76g), the shape in part created by the formation of a notch in the crook of the flake through abrupt retouch. It has scarring around a prominent bulb of percussion (image above). The second piece is sub-rectangular in plan with a rounded distal end (47.8 by 26.3 by 13.0mm (max.); W.: 11.58). It has a high triangular cross-section (Th.: 12.85mm), a removal at the distal end on the dorsal face flattening it out at this end. There is evidence of retouching fairl…

Sixteen microliths formed from snapped blades/bladelets (max 2.3 grams, min 0.2 gram); none appear to be retouched suggesting they are have been discarded with the remainder of the knapping waste.
