Record ID: DENO-85BB29
Object type: POINT
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Rotherham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint possible Mousterian point of Middle Palaeolithic date (c. 150,000 - 40,000 BC). The object is made flint with a mottled light grey and cream coloured opaque patina covering the entire surface of the object. There are small patches of re-cortication on the surface. It is a tertiary flake with no sign of the original cortex remaining and is roughly triangular in plan and plano-convex in cross-section, with a pointed distal end. A small striking platform is evident at the proximal end. This is not centrally placed, but offset to one side. A bulb of percussion extends from this pla…

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A patinated flint implement, possibly a reworked natural flake or earlier debitage. Dr Kevin Leahy says: "the utilisation of natural flint was a practice characteristic of the Later Bronze Age and Iron Age". The surface shows a recorticated patina with what may be iron staining. Rough scaled retouching along the edge seems to cut this recortication, suggesting re-use. There is what may be a burin at the tip of the implement. Length 51.9 mm, width 16.7 mm, thickness 8.8 mm. Weight 8.4 g

County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A piece of flint debitage probably of middle/late Bronze Age date (c. 1600 - c. 800 BC). Flint, pale grey, opaque, all surfaces covered with pale orange-yellow patina. Red iron staining on both faces suggesting movement within a river. Broadly triangular in plan with one convex edge and curved corners; trapezoidal in cross-section. Tertiary working, hard hammer: the ventral face has a large bulb of percussion at the proximal end. Possible short, scaled, semi abrupt retouch on small areas of the edge of ventral face, but this may be ancient damage. Overall, the object measures 38.7 mm

A flint primary flake probably of middle/late Bronze Age date (c. 1600 - c. 800 BC). Flint, pale grey, opaque, dorsal face covered by pale brown cortex. Broadly triangular in plan with convex edges and curved corners; rectangular to lozenge-shaped in cross-section. Primary working, hard hammer: the ventral face has a large bulb of percussion at the proximal end with concentric ripples radiating from the bulbar scar. Possible short, scaled, semi abrupt retouch on distal edge of dorsal face, but this is only in the cortex so is probably damage rather than retouch. Length 46.1mm, width 4…

Object type: TRANCHET AXEHEAD
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint tranchet axehead from the early Mesolithic period (c.9000 - 8000 BC). The flint is a dark brownish-grey and fairly opaque with elements of the cortex visible. The axe is crudely worked, with a rounded cutting edge, roughly parallel sides and a pointed butt. It has a broadly triangular cross-section. The flint appears to be in the second stage of being worked due to the patches of cortex on its butt and and its ventral and dorsal faces. Also, a soft hammering technique seems to have been used, identifiable by the weak ripple marks and low bulbs of percussion. The broad shape of…

Debitage blade, dating to Mesolithic Period - Neolithic (c. 9000 - c. 2200 BC). Transluscent brown flint with some white spots. Tertiary blade, ripple marks visible on ventral face but the bulb of percussion is missing, suggesting that the blade has been broken. Possible retouching (short, stepped, low-angle) on the dorsal face, but this is only visible over a short distance (14mm) at the proximal end, and is among several other irregular marks which suggest it may just be damage instead. Retouch (short, stepped, low-angle) visible only at the distal end of the ventral face, but is ab…

A complete small flint scraper of probably the Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age period, dating from c. BC 3000 - c. BC 1500. The scraper is broadly triangular in shape, with a roughly rectangular cross section. There is no cortex remaining on the surface. The dorsal (upper) surface exhibits controlled working, with minimal retouch (short, sub parallel, abrupt to semi abrupt) along the working edge, this appears to have been done to blunt the edge which suggests the flint was used as a scraper. There are two broad rectangular flake scars, one at the proximal end and one at the di…
