Record ID: HAMP-CA1563
Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A bifacially knapped fragmentary handaxe of a yellow-brown flint. It is very coarsely knapped, with large and angular removals covering both faces. the flint itself is somewhat freckled and mottled with darker brown spots, in addition to some quite significant iron staining on the ventral face, where cracks and scarring are also clearly visible. It is suggested to be of Lower Palaeolithic date.

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A late Neolithic barbed and tanged arrowhead, of a rather irregular shape, and with the ends of both barbs being broken off. It has not been knapped flat due to the natural shape of the flint, and thus appears somewhat lumpy, without the natural elegance of many examples of this kind of artefact. It is of a grey flint, although there are lines of a darker grey, almost black colour in addition to some patinisation markedly on the tang.

Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Three bifacially knapped blades of late Palaeolithic date which appear to be side scrapers in a light grey flint. Two are of the relatively standard rectangular shape, although they vary in profile with one being almost flat and the other having steeper faces and presenting a higher dorsal line. The third scraper is kite-shaped (deltoid) and is thicker than the first but still appears flatter than the second of its companions with regards to profile (despite the contradicting measurements!). A small amount of cortex is retained on the distal end, although all three flints suffer from w…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An early Neolithic polished axe of white flint, slightly chipped and broken but retaining the classic profile and smooth texture. At the distal end the dark flint below is visible in the flat bottom, and it can be seen at another point further up in the axe where it has been damaged. A large removal is visible on the ventral face, along with a slight amount of iron staining and elements of a darker grey patina.

Object type: END SCRAPER
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An early Neolithic end scraper of a dark, almost black flint. It is beautifully shaped, curving around thickly to reach a short straight side. This side has a triangular cut in it, presenting a small separate platform which is the only asymmetry in the object. All three large removals as well as retouch removals are visible, and the object is in very good condition, though there is some patinisation on the ventral face.

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
One small microlith and one graver, both of a dark grey flint and Mesolithic date. The microlith is of a hollow-based point form, and appears to be an asymmetric hollow flaked-from-above variant. (Bond 2002, 97), a fairly standard later Mesolithic microlith form. It retains some cortex, and there is also some patinisation on both the faces. Dimensions - L.: 23.93mm, W.: 16.19mm, Th.: 3.38mm, Wt: 1.88g The graver is of a sharp triangular shape coming to a point which seems to have broken off or been deliberately snapped. Much of the cortex has not been removed, especially on the…

County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
One scraper and two small microliths from an area where many other Mesolithic flints have been discovered. The scraper is an end scraper, and is almost fan-like in shape, albeit a little more rounded. It is of dark grey flint and a large amount of the white cortex remains on the ventral face. The bulb of percussion and removal marks are clearly visible, and the meeting point with the cortex is very clearly demarcated - the circular sweep of removal is cut in a very deliberate and determinant fashion. The two microliths are also of the dark grey flint, but both are severely patinised…

Four small microliths, all of sandy brown colour flint, and all very small and fine. One is of a hollow flaked form, while three are of trapezoid forms. All four are in very good condition although there appears to be some patina present on one example, although this could be natural colour gradation within the flint.

A late Mesolithic flint scraper, roughly bifacial along a distinct dorsal ridge, off which the faces fall sharply. One area along this ridge, however, has been deliberately flattened out to form a small platform, and the ventral face is completely flat. The scraper is made of a dark grey flint and suffers from both severe patinisation on the ventral side and iron staining on the dorsal. Other than this it is in good condition, and a similar example may be found in Bond (2002, 121; ref. 90).

Five different flint implements all from the same location within an area known to have large numbers of Mesolithic flints on the surface. There are two scrapers and three microliths, all of the same dark grey flint common to the locality. The scraper is quite large and crescent shaped, but only half the cortex has been removed on the dorsal face, exposing only the cutting edge, while all of it has been removed on the ventral face. The cortex runs almost exactly along the halfway line of the object, presenting a possibly deliberately contrasting effect. One of the microliths exhibits a…

A set of nine lithic implements all from the same location, found in an area known to be a Mesolithic flint hotspot. The group comprises six different microliths, one side scraper, one core and one waste flake of early Mesolithic date. The core is a typical Mesolithic bi-polar type, of a greyish colour with some patinisation on the dorsal face. Removals are clearly visible, and the remnants of the core itself form an almost square shape. Further examples may be found in Bond (2002, 103) for comparison. Length: 53.86mm, Width: 40.03mm, Thickness: 31.31mm, Weight: 65.6g The scrape…

Two Mesolithic implements from a prolific area, found in association with each other. One is a small microlith of grey flint, the colour of which becomes darker at the thicker centre of the object. It is of a trapezoidal form, and appears to be almost blade-like were it not for the distinctive angle on the left side. The shape is indicative of the later Mesolithic, and a parallel may be found in Bond (2002, 119; ref.: 5.103:21). The second implement appears to be an end scraper, and is made of the same grey flint, although much of the cortex has been left on the right side of the i…

A group of five late Mesolithic flint implements all found together, comprising four microliths and a single waste flake. Of the microliths, two are small lunate shaped microliths, and one is lunate shaped but much larger than the others, although all three clearly present the typical semi circular shape associated with this type of microlith. The fourth microlith is broken in one corner, but appears to present a triangular geometric form, of scalene type. The waste flake appears as if removals have been made from it, probably of more small microliths, rendering it equivalent almost to…

A set of four lithic implements all found together, of different kinds but all dating to the Mesolithic period. The first object is a microlith of an obliquely blunted point type, demonstrating the typical curved outline with a flat back. It retains some cortex, but only on the distal end. Two pieces are waste flakes, which retain large amounts of the original cortex, but have patinised around stress lines, changing their original dark grey colour to a lighter shade. The final implement is somewhat perplexing, it has clearly been struck and removals have been made, but not enough to re…

Two late Mesolithic lithic implements found in association: a small microblade and an equally small microlith, both are characteristically late Mesolithic in date. As shown in the dimensions below, the blade is incredibly small and all knapping work that has taken place is very precise and detailed. Some parts of the white cortex cling to the dark grey flint; their removal would have badly upset the balance of the object. The microlith is of the same dark grey flint, and some patinisation has taken place, leaving the typical white patterning on the ventral face. The bulb of percussion …
