An incomplete grey bifacially reworked tertiary flint polished axehead. Low gloss patina is visible on the original polished surface and mid gloss patina can be seen on the reworked areas. There are several areas of iron staining on both faces. The axhead has a faceted cross section with slightly flattened sides and arched upper and lower surfaces with a gradual narrowing to taper from the cutting edge to the narrower butt end where the axe would have been hafted. The cutting edge and butt end show large broad flake removal scars leaving a very irregular edge. This is probably later wo…

A complete lead alloy token or tally of post-medieval date. The token has been cast and the moulding spur can still be seen clearly. It is also evident that the mould was not correctly aligned at the two faces of the token do not align. The token has moulded decoration on both faces, one with the initials 'L C' while the other side has a long cross dividing the token into quarter; the top two quarters each has a letter, again a repeat of the initials ( L C ) but the wear to the bottom two quarters makes any marks / initials / date hard to decipher. These tokens generally date to the 17…

A fragment of a Neolithic polished axehead dating c. 4000-2500 BC. The fragment comprises around 30% of the total axehead, and represents the butt end, although the tip of this is missing. Extensive post-depositional damage is visible on the surfaces in the form of numerous flake removals, probably caused in the most part by abrasion and rough treatment while in a ploughsoil environment. These later removals clearly cut through the surface patination of the axe, showing a bright reddish colour underneath the greyish colour of the surface. The axe fragment is of thick-butted type, with …

An incomplete Neolithic polished axehead, possibly of greenstone, dating 4000-2350 BC. The object is sub triangular in shape with an oval profile, though it appears that only the butt of the original axehead remains with a hackly fracture at one end. It is a fine grained stone with a mid-light grey green colour with dark reddish grey in places, possibly iron inclusion or staining. Axeheads such as this tend to date to the Neolithic period, with the closest parallels on the database being ESS-3CD931 and WILT-CC0D46. The stone is not particular common to the area but known to originat…

Incomplete sandstone macehead or pebble hammer, semi-circular in plan and profile and ovate in section, showing the partial perforations from both surfaces. About half of the macehead remains, fracturing through the centre of the implement and exposing half of the shaft hole on either side. The shaft hole is semi-circular in plan and an 'hour-glass' shape in profile and has been drilled from both sides. This shape would have improved hafting, especially if the wooden haft was swollen once it was held in the centre. The shaft hole has not quite met in the middle which suggests that perh…

Dark grey igneous stone polished axe fragment. The chipped butt end of a polished stone axe or mace head of a broad lentoid section with nearly parallel sides.

An incomplete Neolithic polished flint axehead (4000 BC-2351 BC) This axehead is sub-rectangular in plan and pointed-oval (lenticular) in cross-section. Both long edges taper to a point rather than having side facets. The butt end and the cutting edge are missing due to old breaks. One face exhibits two large negative flake scars, the upper of which has a hinge fracture. These scars probably post-date the polishing. The opposite face has three major negative flake scars and the upper and lower scars appear to post date the polishing. The axehead, including the breaks and negative fla…

Sandstone whetstone fragment. Very slightly tapered cylindrical stone object, flat at its broader end and broken at the other. The sides are lightly dished and facetted by wear. The use of various stones for sharpening, either commercially imported or, more usually in this region, collected from local drift deposits, was especially characteristic of the Romano-British and Anglo-Saxon periods. Contact with Scandinavia introduced phyllite and schist hones which would dominate the market for hone stones until the later Middle Ages. Suggested date: Unknown, Roman to Early Medieval, 43-850.…
