Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint knife of Neolithic date. The knife has been made on a secondary flake of a mottled brown flint, retaining cortex over maybe a quarter of the dorsal surface. It is broadly triangular in plan with a low trapezoidal section. The knife retains the prominent bulb and part of the platform. The flake on which the knife is made is slightly curved. Invasive, overlapping soft-hammer retouch extends the entire length of the left dorsal edge while the opposing right edge has a small area of retouch around the tip but is otherwise un-retouched. Some use and / or post-depositional d…

Object type: ADZE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete Mesolithic flint adze or pick, dating from c. 10,000 to c. 3500 BC. This adze has been made on an elongated flint nodule of a mottled dark grey flint, now patinated white / light grey with evidence of recortification. Being broadly triangular in section this object can be described as a pick as well as an adze. The butt is squared in plan, the side taper gently and evenly towards the tip which is rounded. The adze is worn but is in good condition overall, with an area of post-depositonal damage around the butt.

A damaged flint bladelet of later prehistoric date (Mesolithic to Neolithic date, c.10,000 - 2,400 BC). The flake has been made from a secondary striking of a mottled light grey flint using hard hammer percussion. The bulb and platform are absent and there is a small hinge fracture to the distal end. A previous bladelet removal is visible on the dorsal side. There is modern damage to both laterals.

A damaged flint flake of later prehistoric date (probably Mesolithic to Neolithic date, c.10,000 - 2,400 BC). The flake has been made from a tertiary striking of a mottled light grey flint using hard hammer percussion. The bulb and platform are present. The flake has a hinge fracture on the right edge, and there is weathering and modern damage over all surfaces. The patina suggests the flake has been on the surface and exposed to the elements for some time.

A flint piercer made on a bladelet dating to the Late Upper Palaeolithic to Mesolithic period (c. 20,000-4,000 BC). The piercer has been made on a tertiary flake of a mottled orange-brown flint. The bulb is retained as is the small fragment of the platform. There are two flake scars on the dorsal surface. The lower half of the left hand edge of the dorsal side has been worked with soft hammer precussion, becoming more invasive towards the tip of the piercer, which has detatched, possibly during production but potentially after deposition.

Object type: SIDE SCRAPER
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint side scraper on a thick flake of uncertain date - potentially the flake could be Palaeolithic but equally it could be later prehistoric. The secondary flake has been hard-hammer struck from a mottled orange-brown flint. There are additional ancient removals / edge damage on the right hand edge of the ventral surface, but there is also modern damage on the same edge.
