1 piece of flint waste flake (debitage) from flint tool production, likely Neolithic to the Bronze Age c. 4000 - 1000BC. Description: The flake is a secondary flake afrom blade production, it has a pronounced bulb of percussion and substantial rippling likely due to hard hammer production. No retouch or evidence of use of the flake as a tool. The flin is mottled Light grey with some patches of inclusions and a light brown semi-transparent light grey brown edges.

The flaking retouch is covering, scaled (although small area of sub-parralel retouch), low-angle to semi-abrupt. The butt is rounded and has a slightly twisted ovoid cross-seciton. The patination is light white and there is substantial light grey patches, likely chert inclusions.

The reworked tip of bifacially worked probable lower or middle Palaeolithic flint handaxe of 500,000 - 40,000 BC date. Description: The handaxe fragments has been bifacially worked but unclear if this was from a blank or a flank due to small size and extent of later reworking. It has a thin rounded triangular shape in plan, with a slightly convex butt end, rounded point and two slightly convex lateral edges.(mesal). It has been bifacial flaked with covering, scaled, low angled retouch. The butt end has broken and been heavily reworked as a useable tool in antiquity as noted by the fac…

A possible flint hollow or coarse scraper of likely of Neolithic to late prehistoric date c 3300-1 BC. Description: The scraper is made from a highly patinated secondary flake significantly older than the retouch creating the two hollow scraping edges. The flake is irregularly shaped with pronounced flaking, bulb of percussion and conchoidal rippling, it is also quite curved in profile. The two hollow scraping edges start from distal end of the flint and extend roughly half way down the length of tool. The flint has been heavily battered, the scraping edges are formed by irregularly s…

A flint core possibly produced with the Levallois technique and dating from the Early Middle Palaeolithic to Late Middle Palaeolithic c.13,000 - 2200 BC. Description: The object is roughly rectangular with a rounded end. The flat end has a single subtantial striking platform and appears ot have substnatial shaping around its edges. The heavy wear and paitnation obscures much for the flaking making its itended use uncertain. Measurements: 85.51mm long, 56.76mm wide, 29.82mm thick and 145.20g in weight.

A heavily patinated and battered lithic waste 'chunk' (debitage) of uncertain prehistoric date. Description: The flake is large and uneven in plan, triangular in cross section. Every edge is heavily battered. The conchoidal rippling and bulb of percussion appear to be quite prominent despite much of it being obscured by very dense blue white patination. The flint here visible through the patination is mid grey in colour. There is substantial iron staining across much of its surface. Measurements: 81.34mm long, 41.36mm wide, 23.1mm thick and 83.26g in weight.

A fragment polished flint polished flint axehead of Neolithic date, c.4000-2200BC. Description: The fragment represents a middle section of the axehead. possibly forwards the wider blade end, but it is difficult to be certain. All original sides and faces are heavily polished though a number of original (pre-polishing?) or subsequent reworking flake scars are present along both edges. These flake scars may indicate a period of re-edging or similar reworking and further polishing after its initial production. Longitudinal striations caused by the polishing of the surfaces are visible o…

A prehistoric, struck or knapped, medium size, worked flint- probable side and end scrapper. Sub-rectangular/oval shape, slightly plano-concave made from a mottled pale grey and white flint. Bulb of percussion has two bulbar scars one either side. There is a medium sized striking platform and feint ripples with two flake beds on the dorsal surface. There appears to be secondary working in two concave sections down one side, struck from the ventral surface and also across the rounded distal surface struck from the dorsal surface. The flint appears to show some wear and has an attractive…

A coarse flint scraper likely dating to the late Bronze Age or Iron age c.1000BC - 0BC . Description: The scraper was produced from a secondary flake, irregularly shaped, although with four sides. The flaking has left substle conchoidal ripples on both sides of the flint and a substantial bulb of percussion on the ventral face. The retouch is formed from short scaled semi-abrupt retouch from the ventral face through the cortex on one edge and scaled long semi-abrupt on the wide edge perpedicular to the cortex edge. This latter retouch may be intended to creat a boring point on the cor…

The flaking on the dorsal and the and conchoidal scarring (rippling) on the ventral face are very pronounced which suggest hard hammer technology. The majority of the edge has short, scaled semi-abrupt retouch struck from the dorsal face, save the long broken edge which is formed by a transverse hinge fracture.
