Record ID: LVPL-4957B2
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Cheshire East
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A bi-polar core from Boulder Clay deposited in the last Ice Age, probably worked on an anvil, as indicated by the deep negative scar on the other side and the damage at each end of the piece. Late Mesolithic (between 7400-4000 BC) and similar to material, according to Ron Cowell of MOL, from sites east of Liverpool or on the Wirral. Possibly the remnants of a larger pebble used to fashion smaller blades by striking, in this case on an anvil.

Two pieces, probably from the same small blue flint nodule. One a small flake waste removed from the lower part of the nodule with some cortex (piece 1), and another small flake with more cortex remaining on the back but with evidence of fine edge damage and smoothing on the flint interior edge probably from use (piece 2). Piece 1: 12mm in length, 12mm in width, 3.5mm thick, 0.55g Piece 2: 18mm in length, 13mm in width, 5mm thick, 1.50g Two pieces of flint which look like very rough waste, (piece 3 & 4) with evidence of small narrow flake scars having previously come from thi…

Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark grey flint flake with broad striking platform and prominent bulb of percussion and bulbar scar, suggesting removal from a large flint nodule with a hard hammer such as a pebble. The flint is good quality and may most likely be of river gravel origin. The flake has been broken laterally and the irregular damage along the upper left hand side may be natural post-depositional damage rather than through use, although the latter is not impossible particularly if the lateral break to the flake was deliberate, although there is no way of knowing whether this was the case. This is dis…

A lithic implement of prehistoric date. The object is triangular in plan and is a light creamy brown colour. Ron Cowell, Curator of Prehistoric Archaeology, Museum of Liverpool notes: Triangular piece of miscellaneous-type flint I haven't seen much of in the region. There is some possible working around the thinner butt end, with a vertical break on the reverse side removing where the bulb of percussion may have been. There are some longitudinal fine scars along the right hand side, although difficult to tell whether these were put on before the piece was removed from the nodule or…

A grey flint, possibly a naturally created blank but with signs of surface working at one edge, perhaps to aid holding or even hafting, and retouch and damage along the longer continuous edge. The object is sub-oval in plan and sub-triangular in cross section. The retouch along the long edge is short, sub-parallel and semi-abrupt. Dimensions: 30mm in length, 11mm in width, 11mm thick, 4.60g Ron Cowell, Curator of Prehistoric Archaeology, Museum of Liverpool notes: This suggests a cutting type tool which would fit most easily into the following technology. The flint belongs to…

A large flint core of early Mesolithic or early Neolithic date. The core is cylindrical with one platform and parallel striking of narrow blades. One face of the object has narrower scars from blade removal while on the opposite face wider blades have been removed down the length of the core with shorter narrower blades removed from above (towards the striking platform) at a diagonal angle to the lower removals. The removed flints appear to have been blades. There is no visible sign of platform dressing. A strip of light cream cortex remains along the length of one side of the core…

A small flint flake, possibly a borer, with abrupt retouch along the mesial portion of the right edge with relatively long scars. The flint increases in thickness on this side toward the proximal end, where there is evidence of a fracture/breakage. There is also semi-abrupt short retouch along the opposite edge on both faces, perpendicular to that of the other side and meeting in a point. From the ventral face, the point at the distal end is broken, with the top missing, and retouch on the left side is more abrupt with some extremely fine retouch present near to the promixal end.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Neolithic or Bronze Age sub circular patinated white and caramel flint 'pot lid' modified to perform as a scraper. It has a number of small, occasional, short, abrupt removals, and a few larger invasive removals. The latter may be a result of plough action, or possibly evidence of reuse. Probably Neolithic or Bronze Age (c4000 to c800 BC) but impossible to date accurately. The length is 31mm, the width is 18mm, the thickness is 4mm, and the weight is 1.5g. Modified natural 'pot lids' would have made an expedient 'quick fix' tool in an emergency and may indicate the presence o…

An almost complete unpolished flaked axe of Neolithic date and of Scandinavian type. The object has a convex cutting edge and straight parallel sides which taper to a squared off butt end. The cutting edge measures 64mm in width and is 3mm thick. A large oval flake has been removed from one face just above the cutting edge in recent times and is likely due to plough damage. Each face of the object has been worked with flaking. The flaked sides taper evenly towards the butt end which is rectangular in cross-section. The butt end measures 25.5mm in width and is 22mm thick. The butt e…
