Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Early Mesolithic to Neolithic flint blade. The blade is sub triangular in plan and trapezoidal in cross section. A small part of the cortex remains on the dorsal face, close to the distal end. This is indicative of secondary phase working on the core. A central tapering negative scar is flanked either side by a further negative scar. Damage to the blade is revealed by unpatinated nicks to the sides and slight damage to the distal end. Short, scaled, low angle retouch is present along the longitudinal sides and snapped proximal end of the blade on the dorsal face. Very faint conchoidal …

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A roughly crescent shaped secondary flake, mottled grey/brown in colour. The flake is probably formed on a piece of secondary debitage. There is around 70% cortex remaining on the dorsal side. The area of the flake covered in cortex has a sub-oval indentation measuring roughly 18mm x 8mm. The remaining area of the dorsal side is covered with extensive, scaled, low angle flaking, forming a side scraper on the left mesal. The ventral face is smooth with a low bulb of percussion, with ripple lines emanating from it. The scraper is probably dated to the early to middle Bronze Age. Lengt…

Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An almost complete neolithic stone axe-head of unidentified grey stone. The more pointed haft end shows patches of exposed cream-coloured cortex. Probably unpolished as the surface is covered with irregular pitting, and the cutting edge has one smooth edged, but chipped, area whereas the other side is chipped and almost entirelu unpolished. The polishing may be due to the type of work being done rather than polished during manufacture. On the same side as the polished cutting edge, 2-3cm from the hafted end, is a short slightly curved groove (15mm long) probably due to modern damage. W…

Complete barbed and tanged arrow head of Early Bronze-age date (2350-1501 BC): - of unpatinated dark grey flint with paler inclusions. The "blank" for this arrowhead was a hard hammer struck tertiary flake, then pressure flaked to shape, the dorsal face has semi-invasive retouch, leaving the central area unmodified, the ventral face has rather steep pressure retouch, also leaving the central face unmodified, as a result the choice of orientation can be ascertained, unusually, the bulb of percussion is towards one of the tangs, as evidenced by the fissures radiating away from the (now m…

Object type: TRANCHET FLAKE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint tranchet axehead from the early Mesolithic period (c.9000 - 8000 BC). The flint is a brownish-cream colour with crumbling inclusions visible. The axe is crudely worked, with a rounded cutting edge, roughly parallel sides and a pointed butt. It has a broadly triangular cross-section. The flint appears to be in the second stage of being worked. The broad shape of the blade and technique used of the removal of a single flake with a transverse blow is common in the early Mesolithic. The object has been broken in antiquity caused by inclusions or possibly been discarded because the…

County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Damaged remains of a flint tool, probably a knife of Neolithic to Bronze age date. The piece is leaf shaped but much larger than an arrowhead. The outline appears mainly complete but breaks on both faces mean the extent of original retouch and exact form of the edges is unclear. A small amount of cortext (c.10% of the face) remains near the point on one face which may indicate it is unfinished and broke during production. The piece appears to have been formed on a large flake with pistal end now formed into the point. Some of the bulb of percussion may remain at the proximal end but …
