Object type: BARBED AND TANGED ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An Early Bronze Age barbed and tanged flint arrowhead (c. 2500 BC- c. 1500 BC). This arrowhead has been made on a tertiary flake. It is broadly sub-triangular in plan and lentoid in cross-section. The arrowhead has been knapped using both direct and indirect percussion techniques. Both faces have received about the same amount of knapping. The tang has a square end and is a sub-square in plan, roughly pointed-oval in cross-section. Each barb now has a square end but they seem to have been truncated. The ends of the barbs are now flat and smooth. The arrowhead has a dull white patina …

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete Late Neolithic flint oblique arrowhead (2700 BC-2351 BC). This arrowhead has been made on a broken tertiary flake. The dorsal face has been retouched at each side edge and the removals are short and invasive, scaled and low angled. The ventral face has conchoidal ripples and one edge has been retouched. These removals are short parallel and low angled. The break forms one side and it would seem that the flake was chosen in order to take advantage of the break to form a side. A short length of the broken edge has been worked. Consequently, the implement is not a broken lea…

Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete Mesolithic flint 'Thames pick' tranchet axehead or adze (c. 9000 BC-c. 4000 BC). This implement has been made on an elongated flint nodule which has been flaked overall, except for a small area at the butt end where the cortex remains. This implement is sub-rectangular in plan and side view, sub-square in cross-section. Mid-way along its length, two of the four faces are 'waisted'. The sharp cutting edge is formed by oblique removal of two 'tranchet' flakes. A small portion at the butt end has been battered indicating that the implement may also have been used as a hammer. …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Mesolithic (probably) flint blade (c. 10000 BC-c. 4001 BC). The proximal end of this tertiary blade has been lost due to a transverse break.

A Mesolithic or Neolithic flint adze or pick (c. 10000 -c. 3500 BC) . This object has been made on an elongated flint nodule. It is sub-oval in cross-section except at the butt end where it is sub triangular in cross-section. The dorsal face has about 80% off-white cortex and the ventral face has been crudely flaked all over. A large indentation on the ventral face appears to have been made deliberately. The implement seems not to have a cutting edge but may have been damaged while in use. However, the patina is the same as elsewhere. The butt end is worked overall and is relatively f…
