Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Bradford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flake from a polished stone axehead of Neolithic date, about 4000 BC - 2200 BC. It is an oval, tertiary flake of stone, probably Langdale tuff, which is a light grey colour with a yellow hint. Most of the dorsal face is a polished surface, with the conchoidal fracture visiable on the reverse, and some flaking round the proximal edge. Langdale axes which have been reworked, or blade chips from them are not uncommon (Leahy, 2014, Recording flint and stone; a guide and protocol). The flake is 29.1mm long, 40.1mm wide and 9.9mm thick. 11.6g.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A piece of black jet, or jet-like material, recovered and recorded because it is not naturally occuring in the area and may be an exotic material curated by human activity. As such, it dates from the Neolithic Period onwards. Worked flints have also been recovered from the location. The jet is not obviously worked or shaped, but has natural flat facets and what appears to be a conchoidal fracture. It is roughly a pointed oval shape and triangular in cross section. It leaves a dark brown mark on paper and is not cold to the touch. It is 56.6mm long, 29mm wide and 22.7mm thick. 13.9g. Co…
