Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
42 complete and snapped flint blades or bladlets of later Mesolithic date (6000BC - 3500BC). These blades are struck from a core and have the generic crested appearance on their dorsal faces. Many of the blades have been deliberately snapped through the removal of side notches and deliberate breaking. The underside / ventral face of each shows conchoidal rippling and some have evidence of bulb of percussion and / or striking platforms. None of teh blades have been retouched. The colour of the flint varies between light grey - dark black and some have a mily white coloured surface patin…

Fifty Eight (58) fragments of secondary flint waste / debitage of Neolithic date (3500-2100 BC). All of the flakes are from secondary phase of working / flaking and are a direct result of preparation of flint tools. Most show clear signs of direct hard hammer knapping and the majority have been removed with minimal loss of flint from the nodule / core. The cortex is all mid grey in colour and the majority is chalk derived. The majority of the flint is a light grey through to black colour, although some pieces have milky white surface patina. This collection is from an assemblage of la…

A complete leaf-shaped arrowhead of probable Neolithic date (2900 - 2150 BC). The arrowhead is formed on a mid-grey coloured tertiary flint flake; both the dorsal and ventral faces are extensively retouched. The arrowhead is lentoid or pointed oval (an irregular pentagon) in plan and lentoid in cross section. The butt of the arrowhead has been trimmed and extensively reworked removing any trace of striking platform or bulb of percussion In profile the arrowhead is also lentoid. The shape of the arrowhead does not conform with known sub-types - it most closely resembles kite shaped exam…

Two small and irregular flint tertiary debitage flakes (from the third and final phase of tool making) dating from the Neolithic period (3500-2100 BC). Both flakes are formed from mid - light grey coloured flint which has patinated to a white colour. The ventral face of both flakes show conchoidal ripples but the bulb of percussion and the striking platform, point of percussion have been removed through snapping. The dorsal faces have a number of irregular and regular flake scars. The more rectangular flake (2) has some signs of deliberate retouch forming a slightly waisted profile at …

County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A thumbnail scraper of later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2300 -1800BC). The scraper is formed on a fine, mid brown (toffee like) coloured good quality, tertiary oval shaped flake of flint. The ventral face shows the bulb and point of percussion as well as conchoidal ripples and bulbar scar; this shows that the flake was struck from a prepared striking platform. The dorsal face has several broad removals / flake facets most probably caused by other flakes being removed for tool production. Around the edges are areas of dense neat regular well applied secondary retouch . This has…

A near complete Early Bronze Age barbed and tanged flint arrowhead (2200-1800 BC) This arrowhead has been knapped from a mottled mid grey white coloured piece of flint. It is broadly sub-triangular in plan and lentoid in cross section. The arrowhead has been knapped using a number of different techniques, including direct and indirect percussion, as well as pressure / ripple / invasive flaking. It is broadly symmetrical in shape with one barb and the tang being complete. The other barb is broken close to the body of the arrowhead by a clean break or snap. Both the long sides of the arr…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An early to middle Neolithic ovate 'laurel leaf like' knife, dating from the period c. 3500-2900 BC. The tool is formed on a mid-orange yellow mottled coloured pieced coarse 'local flint'. In plan the flake is a pointed oval or cordate shape and in cross section it is broadly sub-oval (D-shaped). The tool is formed on a broad blade like flake; the ventral face shows conchoidal ridges and the blade has been struck from a prepared core. The upper / dorsal face shows two parallel ridges. The long edges have been reworked bifacially using both hard and soft hammer being neat and well orga…

County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped and flaked flint scraper of later Neolithic date (3000-2000BC). The scraper is broken and incomplete it is formed on a flake of tertiary debitage. The scraper / knife is broadly oval in plan and irregular in cross section. The ventral face suggests it was struck in the opposite direction to the dorsal face. The dorsal is broadly a tablet shaped and the long edges have well organised short, sub-parallel and abrupt retouch. The flint is a mid grey brown colour with a well formed surface patina. The scraper measures 27.2mm length, 22.5mm width, is 4.7mm thick and weighs 4.10 grams.

An incomplete knapped lithic implement most probably the tip of a bi-facially knapped flint knife or scraper of Neolithic date (3500-2100BC). The knife is formed on a thing sub-triangular snapped flake with an oval cross section. The fragent represents a much larger tool which has been broken across the tip. Both the long edges on both faces have been reworked with a series of short, sub-parallel, semi-abrupt retouch has been applied to form a arc shaped cutting and scraping edge. Further on the ventral face less well organised retouch is present in the same area. The other edges of th…
