Record ID: KENT-AB7BF7
Object type: BACKED BLADE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete backed blade of likely Upper Paleolithic (40000BC - 9000BC) or Neolithic date (4000Bc-2200BC) Description: The blade survives from the butt end of the blade too roughly half way along the blade's length. The left edge of the dorsal face has been heavily battered in antiquty and it is uncertain if this was part of an attempt to blunt the edge or accidental, althoguh a seciton has a clear segment of of short scaled abrupt edge. The right edge has been reworked after the blade snapped so its orignal working edge is uncertain what is visible is short, scaled semi-abrupt ret…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A highly patinated and incomplete backed blade of likely Upper Paleolithic (40000BC - 9000BC) or Neolithic date (4000Bc-2200BC) Description: The blade survives from the butt end of the blade too roughly half way along the blade's length. The left edge of the dorsal face has been heavily battered in antiquty and it is uncertain if this was part of an attempt to blunt the edge or accidental. The right edge is serrated with short, scalled semi-abrupt retouch. The conchoidal fracturing (ripples) and the bulb of percussion is very clear and thus the use of a hard hammer in its' production …

Object type: FABRICATOR
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint fabricator of uncertain date, mesolithic to bronze age date 9000BC-1000BC Description:The fabricator is trapezoidal in plan with a wide irregular base and roughly parrel sides narrow towards the much narrower top. In cross-section the fabricator is triangular. Save for the striking platform the base is still covered in cortex. The dorsal face right of the ventral face is significantly more scarred than the other faces with the scaled semi-abrupt retouch extending from short as on the other faces/edges to invasive. Along the edges of the ventral face and dorsal left of the vent…

Object type: PLANO CONVEX KNIFE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint with recortified spot, probable plano-convex knife. A broad thin oval-ended flake with two broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and a positive hinged fracture on the ventral. This was followed by the hard-hammer removal of further flakes from the ventral surface. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect follows one end, and probably trimmed the opposite end to facilitate grip. Indentations at one end and the appearance of retouch executed from the dorsal aspect are both probably the result of fortuitous edge-on impacts rather than working. Suggeste…

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lower Palaeolithic handaxe of asymmetrical plan form with one long main meandering cutting edge, and a stout tip with two parallel tranchet blows to sharpen it, and a shorter, and straighter cutting edge to the other lateral side, truncated by a concave patch of worn pale brown cortex. It is of orange patinated mottled flint due to deposition in iron oxide rich glacial gravels, with a few small recent chips to the cutting edges show that the original colour of the flint was of a pale grey with off-white coarse inclusions. There are numerous thermal (frost) fractures to the surfaces, mo…

Flint core. A long pyramidal core with a flat striking platform and the scars from the removal of long narrow parallel flakes and bladelets by unidirectional working. A pale grey patina overall may suggest subsequent exposure to a calcareous environment, while light rusty staining might hint this was gravel. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC.

Object type: FABRICATOR
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark grey flint fabricator. A narrow leaf-shaped lentoid section flake bearing covering angled retouch overall. The finder kindly suggests an early Neolithic date; this artefact class is known from Mesolithic and later contexts up to the Early Bronze Age. The dating offered here takes account of both the finder's advice and the prominence of earlier flint reported from the vicinity. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC.

Grey flint knife. Long sub-triangular flake with long parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with an almost flat ventral surface with a bulb at one end. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows one end of a long straight edge. A pointed end may be defined or emphasised by retouch executed from the ventral aspect on both sides of the point. A light misty patina has developed over one part of the ventral surface, which may suggest a limited exposure to a calcareous environment. . Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC.

A flinter borer dating from the Neolithic to the bronze age c.4000-1000BC. Description: The borer is irregularly shaped with one pointed end and a rounded 'butt' end. The dorsal face has as invasive scaled semi-abrupt retouch covering roughly two thirds of its surface, the remaing area being very flat. Along the top edge runnign from the middle to the top right side (the butt end) is short almost abrupt retouch like blunting the edge. On the ventral face is a substantial bulb of percussion, which with the generla well pronounced conchoidal fracturing would suggest hard hammer producti…

Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey-buff flint leaf arrowhead. A broad leaf-shaped arrowhead formed from a thin flake with covering angled scalar retouch over both its flat sides. The tip is lost, though the fine working of what remains hints that the object was of elongated ogival form when complete. The date might be either early Neolithic with deference to the quality of working, or later Neolithic, by reference to those finely worked rhomboid and ogival points which often seem too fine and delicate to have served as projectile points. It is unclear whether the tip of this object was lost in antiquity or recently…

County: Worcestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Neolithic to early Bronze Age (c. 4000 to 1000BC) scraper: The scraper appears to be knapped from a tertiary flake which is a sub-oval. The dorsal surface has multiple re-touch scars and damage. At the proximal end there is slightly invasive and abrupt re-touch. The ventral surface has a bulb of percussion, and faint conchoidal ripples. The scraper is knapped from flint which has since been burnt forming a light grey crazed surface. It measures 30.38mm long, 33.21mm wide, 11.71mm thick and weighing 11.97g. The scraper is probably a rounded/ end and side scraper and dates to the Neol…

Four pieces of flint debitage, largely of probable late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date, although with one potentially earlier flake, c. 3300-1600 BC. 1. Tertiary flake of mottled pale grey flint, sub-rectangular in plan, sub-triangular-sub-pentagonal in cross section and with a curved profile.

Mesolithic to Neolithic (c. 7000 to 2350BC) debitage: A blade knapped from flint. The blade is trapezoidal in section. The dorsal surface has three vertical scars and the ventral surface has traces of conchoidal ripples. The proximal end is missing, but the patina which covers the surface also covers the break. One on lateral edge there is a small portion of damage rather than re-touch revealing a dark grey flint. It measures 31.88mm long, 14.11mm wide, 3.39mm thick and weighing 2.17g. The blade probably dates to the Mesolithic to Neolithic periods, c. 7000 to 2350BC.

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Probable Mesolithic to early Bronze Age (8000 - 1000BC) retouched flake: The flint flake is knapped from a brown flint which has a strap of grey patina on the side edge. The ventral surface has a large bulb or percussion and slight conchoidal ripples. The dorsal surface has a negative scar. The distal end has a small curved notch which has been formed by re-touch. The flake measures 18.66mm long, 23.56mm wide, 6.25mm thick and weighs 2.33g. Retouched flakes are difficult to date as they are present throughout prehistory. Thus, a wide date range for this piece is suggested.
