A struck flint blade of Early Mesolithic dating (8300 to 6500 BC). The blade is sub triangular in plan. The dorsal (upper) surface exhibits three main flake scars down the length of the blade. A small area of cortex is still present at the base of the blade. There is some deliberate retouch down the the right hand side, with some secondary pressure flaking down the left side. The ventral (lower) surface displays conchoidal rippling down the length of the blade, radiating down from the striking platform at the top. The blade is a mid to dark colour, with little surface pati…

Complete flint blade of probable later Mesolithic date (6500BC - 3500BC). The flint tool is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and cross section. It is much thicker than most blades and the two long edges taper to a blunted point. The bulb of percussion is lost. The two long sides and the lower end of the blade have been retouched / reworked. The retouch is extensive on both long edges where both pressure and direct knapping have been used. The tip is sharpened with retouch in two directions and the butt end is also trimmed with small shallow flakes being removed. A slight notch is …

An incomplete knapped / flaked flint blade, of probable Late Mesolithic to Early Neolithic dating (6500 - 2900 BC). The blade is sub rectangular in plan, and triangular in cross section. A central ridge is present on the dorsal (upper) face, with signs of retouch along the edges. The ventral (lower) face demonstrates signs of concoidal ripples. The bulb of percussion and striking platforms are missing. The blade is a light grey / dark beige colour, with little surface patination.

A broken flint blade, consisting of the lower portion, probably dating from the Late Mesolithic to Early Neolithic periods (6500 - 2900 BC). The blade is sub-rectangular in plan, with a series of ridges on the dorsal (upper) face. A hinge fracture is present towards the tip of the blade, and deliberate retouch (several small parallel flake scars) along the edges is noted. The ventral (lower) face demonstrates some conchoidal ripples. The bulb of percussion is not present, being most likely in the upper part of the blade which is now lost. There are some irregular…

Two incomplete knapped flint blades of Late Mesolithic dating (6500 BC - 4500 BC). The first blade is sub-rectangular in plan, and triangular in cross section and is complete. It consists of a secondary debitage flake, as a small amount of cortex (outer rind) is present on the upper (dorsal) surface. A central ridge runs the length of the upper (dorsal) surface. There are two areas of deliberate (controlled) retouch, along the top of the blade and down the exterior edge at the top of the blade. The lower (ventral) surface is smooth, and does not exhibit any evidence of working s…

County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An irregular chunk of flint that has been irregularly kanpped, possibly being used as a crude core in the Later Mesolithic or Neolithic period (4000 - 3000 BC). All of the cortex (outer rind) has been removed. There are two potential striking platforms, with flint facets (long parallel scars). Post depositional damage is present with many small, uncontrolled scars present, probably the result of plough roll. The flint measures 32.09mm length, 36.39mm width, 26.76mm thick and weighs 40.6 grams.

An irregular fragment of a flint core, used for the production of blades of Mesolithic date (6500 - 3500 BC). It is sub square in plan and D shaped in cross section. One striking platform appears to be present but the core fragment has suffered badly from movement in the soil and plough roll, as there are a significant number of uncontrolled flaking scars present. It is dark grey in colour and a small amount of cortex (outer rind) is present on the distal end of the fragment. It measures 25.32mm length, 29.51mm width, 13.79mm thick and weighs 11.1 grams.

A core rejuvenation flake struck from poor quality flint of Late Mesolithic to Early Neolithic date (6500 to 2900 BC). It is subrectangular in plan. The ventral (upper) face demonstrates a series of ridges, with a hinge fracture present. The dorsal (lower) face demonstrates a bulb of percussion and striking platform. It has been taken from a core, for the production of blades, as demonstrated from a series of parallel flint scars at the proximal end of the flake. There is evidence of uncontrolled flaking scars along the edge of the flake, which are probably the result of post depositi…

Three waste flakes / debitage of Mesolithic to Neolithic dating (4000 to 3000 BC). All three are irregular in shape. One consists of primary debitage, with more than 50% of the surface being covered by the cortex (outer rind). The other two are tertiary debitage, with little or no cortex (outer rind) present. Evdience for working consists of a clear bulb of percussion and controlled conchoidal fracturing. There is evidence of uncontrolled fracturing and plough roll, probably from movement in the soil. Together they weigh 13.1 grams. 1. Measures 42.02mm length, 19.26mm width, 10.16mm t…

A complete struck / knapped tertiary debitage flake, of probable Late Mesolithic dating (c. 7,000 BC to c. 4,000 BC). The debitage flake has a triangular cross section, and is rectangular in shape. The length/width ration indicates that it is consistent with a bladelet. No retouch appears to be present along the long edges. The remains of a bulb of percussion is present at one end. The surface of the flint has patinated to an even off white colour. Length: 25.7 mm Width: 5.9 mm Thickness: 4.4 mm Ratio: 4.3:1 Weight: 0.6 g
