An early Mesolithic flaked flint biface adze "Thames pick" (10,000-7,000BC). The adze has been 'roughed out' from a flint nodule or pebble. It is roughly oval in cross section. Viewed edge-on along its longitudinal axis the adze tapers slightly from the broadly rounded butt towards the more pointed cutting edge. Viewed from above, the butt and cutting edge are both rounded and the sides are approximately straight and parallel. There are signs of crushing along sections of both edges. There are numerous conchoidal fractures and large flake removal scars extending from the edges on both…

An incomplete Lower Palaeolithic small, bifacially worked, flint handaxe of cordate type dating c. 400,000-150,000BC. The handaxe was found on the foreshore and consequently is rolled and abraded with a small amount of edge damage. There is invasive soft hammer flaking covering both faces. The butt and mid portion of the axe is thick and it then tapers to a rounded point. The cross section is lentoid (pointed oval). The flint has an orange patina. There is some damage to the butt with two large flakes missing. The patina has reformed over one of these suggesting the damage occured in …

A Mesolithic - early Neolithic flint blade flake dating 10,000 - 3,500BC. This is a tertiary flake of dark grey and mid grey patchy flint. It has a small, abraded striking platform at the proximal end. It was abraded to prepare the platform for blade removal. On the ventral face is a small bulb of percussion, there is a slight lip at the top of the bulb of percussion that indicates this is a soft hammer removal. On the dorsal surface are several narrow, parallel, elongate flaking scars. There is also some damage to the dorsal surface. There is no retouch present. Dimensions: len…

A Neolithic flint tool, probably a biface tranchet axehead known as a 'Thames pick' (4,000-2351BC). This tool is a 'rough out' from a flint nodule or pebble. It is roughly oval in cross section. Viewed edge-on along its longitudinal axis the adze tapers slightly from the broadly rounded butt towards the more pointed cutting edge. Viewed from above, the butt and cutting edge are both rounded and the sides are approximately straight and parallel. There are signs of crushing along sections of both edges. This crushing suggests it was used as a percussor - hammerstone. There are numerous …

A fragment of a Neolithic polished greenstone axehead dating 4000-2000BC. The axehead is made from greenstone, dark brown-green in colour with a band of lighter green running through it. This is a type of stone formed of compressed volcanic ash and has similar knapping qualities to flint (see HESH-17B4B1 for more details). The axehead has been made on a big flake of greenstone, it is not a core tool. The surface has been polished though some shallow hollows remain from the original shaping. The fragment comprises the proximal end (butt) of the axehead, the distal end (blade) of the ax…

County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A natural flake created by starch fracturing that has been retouched, possibly neolithic, 4000BC-2350BC. The flake is straight, with a diamond cross section, there is no idication that the flake was deliberately struck as it has no bulb of percussion or rippling. However, along one of the long edges there is some short, scaled abrupt angled retouch. This would suggest that the natural flake has been utilised as a tool due to its convenient shape and size. Length: 60.73mm Width: 26.93mm Thickness: 11.4mm Weight: 24.83g
