Three hard hammer struck flakes, two are end scrapers, the third is a simple flake. Tertiary flake, steeply retouched at the distal end to form the convex scraping edge, one side is also similarly retouched along its entire length with a shallow notch (c. 9.5 mm long, 2 mm deep) just below the platform. The flint is dark grey and has a very faint lighter patination. Recent chip to one side of the distal end. 54 x 31.5 x 9 mm, 17 g. Secondary flake, steeply retouched to the distal end to form the convex scraping edge, the retouch becomes less severe on the sides as it approaches the…

Object type: BARBED AND TANGED ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Object is an incomplete, flint barbed and tanged arrowhead dating to the Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age c.2500-1500. The arrowhead is made from a flake of flint and is a matte grey colour with occasional white flecks. Almost the entire arrowhead survives apart from one of the barbs, and a slight part of the tip. There is a significant patch of white .grey coloured cortex on one face. The arrowhead is 29.74mm in length, 20.89mm wide and 4.59mm thick. It weighs 1.7 grams. There are several similar example on the PAS Database.

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Complete Leaf-shaped arrowhead, of Green, H. S. (1980) type 4B, the closest being L in the examples for this type. It is of Pale grey flint with a lighter coloured inclusion to one side, all the surfaces are patinated a faint buff colour. Both faces are entirely modified by invasive pressure flaking, no surface of the original “blank” for this arrowhead survives but it would appear the bulb of percussion on the flake this was made from was originally orientated towards the point as it is slightly thicker at this end than the base. Early Neolithic, 4,000 to 3,000 BC.

County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An edge polished flint axehead probably dating from the late Neolithic, about 3300 - 2200 BC. The butt end of the axe is flat and lozenge shaped in cross section. The axehead is broadly straight sided with a crude slightly convex cutting edge which is pointed oval in cross-section. There are large irregular flake removals on both faces of the axehead which has been polished on one face more extensively than the other. The cutting edge is damaged with a with a large recent flake removal on one face indicated by an area of unpatinated grey flint. The object…

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Mesolithic tranchet axehead. A flaked core tool of broadly rectangular shape and asymmetrical profile formed from a light grey flint nodule interspersed with large patches of cortex. The dorsal face is convexly curved. The ventral face is concavely bowed. The long edges are roughly parallel with the narrowed sub-rounded blade. The butt is slightly narrower than the body and is relatively square and flat. Both the dorsal and ventral faces are crudely worked across the body. The dorsal face has a sub-central ridge / spine extending longitundinally along the body. The cutting edge has b…

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete barbed and tanged arrowhead dating to the Middle Bronze Age period (c. 2400-1000BC). The arrowhead has been knapped from a brownish-grey tertiary flint flake. The object is broadly sub-triangular in plan and D-shaped in cross-section. It is broadly symmetrical in shape, with the barbs pointed and the tang oblong and rounded at the base. The left hand barb is chipped whilst the right is still intact. Both the long sides of the arrowhead have been precisely retouched to create sharp edges. The tip of the arrowhead appears to have broken away. On both&nbs…

A struck tertiary flint flake of probable Neolithic date, probably a waste flake rather than a finished tool. The flake is 32.8mm in length and struck from a pale grey flint with a patch of iron staining to one side. The dorsal surface has removal scars from several angles and there does not appear to be any retouch to the edges.

A fragment of a Mesolithic or Neolithic knapped flint axe or adze head. This is the rear section of the tool; in cross-section this has a narrow elliptic shape with pointed terminals whilst in plan the side’s tapper to the narrow, rounder butt.  There are multiple flaking scars covering both the ventral and dorsal sides, on one dorsal side the flaking scars and rather smooth and the regular curve of the sides suggest this are may have been partially ground and polished. The middle and forward edge of the artefact is truncated, the resulting break is very uneven. The flint, i…
