Record ID: SUR-6F08BF
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Surrey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A struck oblong blade of dark brown flint, with triangular cross sectional profile, which has been removed from a core. The dorsal surface has blade scars; the underside has concoidal fracturing from a single removal strike. The bulb end has a concave break which has evidence of retouch suggesting intentional use of this end as a tool edge. Mesolithic to Neolithic.

A secondary waste flake from flint working, 34.9mm in length and with trapezoidal shape. One side demonstrates a bulb of percussion and concentric ripple with a striking surface at the narrow end of the flake. The other side demonstrates flake removal scars from when the flake was part of a core. The wide end of the flake retains a portion of cortex. No retouch or worked edges are evident to suggest the flake being used as a finished tool. Mesolithic to Neolithic.

An assemblage of 13 fragments of worked flint debitage struck from light grey to grey brown flint and of probable Mesolithic to Bronze Age date. The assemblage comprises: 1 partially worked flake tool, possibly an end scraper, with cortex incompletely removed (see second image). Measures 48.9mm by 24.4mm by 9.6mm and weighing 12.39g. 1 blade fragment without retouch measuring 24.5mm by 16.7mm by 6.2mm and weighing 2.86g. 6 large core or nodule fragments, demonstrating flake removal scars on their dorsal surfaces and in most cases clear percussion bulbs and ripples but without any re…

A stone tool worked from a large secondary struck flake of pale grey flint. The tip has broken off, but there is evidence of short, scaled, sem-abrupt retouch around the distal end as well as rolling damage along the edges. There are four large flake removal scars on the dorsal surface. A portion of cortex remains at the butt end. Neolithic / early Bronze Age.

A Mesolithic to early Neolithic blade, 31.2mm in length, struck from light grey-brown flint. The profile is plano convex, with a triangular upper and flat lower surface where it has been removed from a core. There is no evidence for retouch along the edges. One end of the the blade has traces of cortex, the other narrows to a break.

A pointed flint handaxe, 108mm in length and 189.6g in weight with bifacial working and a roughly lozengiform cross section. There is short sub-parallel abrupt retouch around all edges. According to Wymer's (1999) typological series, it can be described as part of his Mode 2 technology, Type F, with a trimmed butt, straight sides and an acute point. The handaxe has a brown patina corresponding to prolonged deposition in terrace gravels. The tip has a relatively fresh break which shows a brown coloured flint typical of nodules available from paleogene clay-with-flints deposits in downl…

Plano convex struck flint flake, 41.9mm in length. One side demonstrates working, the other is flat, with a single bulb of percussion. There is evidence for a striking platform demonstrating removal from a core at the thick end. There is no evidence of subsequent retouch, suggesting use as a simple cutting flake. The tip has broken off.

A Mesolithic tranchet adze made from brown flint, 83.3mm in length and 49.7mm wide. The adze has been made from a single large flake with a flat side and a convex side demonstrating further working and removal of characteristic final sharpening flake (Butler, 2005: 100). The edges and tip are damaged. Likely manufactured from a flint nodule obtained from local clay-with-flints outcrops on the chalk Downs.
