An incomplete struck / knapped blade, formed from a tertiary debitage flake, of probable Neolithic dating (c. 4,000 BC to c. 2, 350 BC). The probable blade has a sub trapezoidal cross section, and is sub rectangular in shape. Retouch is present along both long sides (short, subparallel, semi-abrupt). The probable blade has been made from a piece of tertiary debitage. The flake has been made from a light grey flint, with little surface patination. Length: 48.5 mm Width: 24.6 mm Thickness: 7.0 mm Weight: 10.4 g

An incomplete struck / knapped blade, formed from a secondary debitage flake, of probable Neolithic dating (c. 4,000 BC to c. 2, 350 BC). The probable blade has a sub trapezoidal cross section, and is sub rectangular in shape. Retouch is present along the lower short side (short, subparallel, abrupt). The probable blade has been made from a piece of secondary debitage, probably the remains of a core for making blade. The flake has been made from a dark grey flint, with little surface patination.

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 …

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…

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…

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…

A broken flint blade, probably dating to the later Mesolithic or early Neolithic periods (6500 - 2900 BC). The blade is almost triangular in plan, with a series of ridges on the dorsal (upper) face. The ventral (lower) face shows evidence of the bulb of percussion and part of a striking platform. The blade has been deliberately broken. There is evidence of retouch along the dorsal (upper) left edge, with four small parallel flake scars. There are some irregular, uncontrolled flake scars present, suggesting later post depositional damage such as plough roll or movement in the soil. The…
