Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A piece of flint debitage in the form of a blade of probable later Mesolithic to Neolithic date (c. 8000 - 3000 BC). The flake retains the bulb of percussion. The flake has suffered modern damage to its dorsal surface and edges; there may be some limited retouching along part of one lateral edge on the ventral side, however it is partly obscured by modern edge damage. The flint is a mottled grey to grey-brown in colour. Uncertain prehistoric date.

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint thumb-nail scraper of very late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age date c.2400-2100 BC. The flint is sub-rounded save for the striking platform edge. It has has short scaled abrupt retouch around the entirety of the rounded edges. The ventral face has been heavily rework to flatten the bulb of percussion with long invasive low angled retouch. Almost all the striking appears to be with heavy hammer technology. The scraper is a limid reddish yellow with mottling possibly from being exposed. The length is 27mm, the width is 14mm, thickness 13mm and the weight 3.77g.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Worcestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A stone Neolithic Langdale axehead roughout, dating to the period c.4000-c.2,350 BC. The axehead is an elongated oval in plan, but tapers to the butt end and has a squared cutting edge. It has an asymmertrical cross section, which broadly resembles a pointed oval with a pronounced curve to one hemisphere. Evidence of flaking is visible on both sides, and the surface has been smoothed either through post-depositional processes or as part of the object's fabrication. However, the axehead has not been finished as it has not been polished smooth. Gabriel Cooney inThe Oxford Handbook of Neo…

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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: length…

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of Mesolithic to early Neolithic flintworking debitage, or possibly a late Mesolithic microlith. It is roughly triangular in shape. There are ripple lines of the ventral face suggesting that it has been struck, but there is an abrupt break across the proximal end and a spall has been removed from the left side. There appears to be a small amount of fine, short, abrupt retouch along the right edge and distal end, suggesting that this may be a microlith of later Mesolithic date or probably a snapped blade. The flint is translucent brown in colour. Length: 18.15mm, width: 10.8…

Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint core of late Mesolithic date, c.7000 - 4000 BC. The core is conical with an ovate section displaying a single striking platform.

County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A pick made on part of a weathered nodule of pale grey mottled flint. The object has an irregular, almost plano-convex cross-section. One face has been flaked all over to a flatish surface, the other has been steeply flaked all along one margin and partially steeply flaked along the other. This face also retains a substantial area of weathered chalky cortex, including on the blunt butt. Both margins have been deliberately battered to blunt them. The tip tapers to a point. On the cortical face there is longitudinal thinning flake scar, struck from the tip end. On the opposite face anoth…

Object type: TRANCHET AXEHEAD
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A tranchet axe with an irregular, variable cross-section, made on a naturally fractured, weathered nodule of mottled opaque pale grey flint. The piece is crudely bifacially flaked, one face retains a substantial area of thick weathered cortex, the other is flaked all over. The sharp cutting edge is formed by oblique removal of a small 'tranchet' flake. Unusually, the butt end is also sharp and may have been reworked to form an alternative cutting edge, also by oblique flake removals on both faces. The margins are irregular and show evidence of deliberate battering to blunt them. The e…
