  • Thumbnail image of OXON-7F3AD7

Record ID: OXON-7F3AD7
Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint piercer made on a bladelet dating to the Late Upper Palaeolithic to Mesolithic period (c. 20,000-4,000 BC). The piercer has been made on a tertiary flake of a mottled orange-brown flint. The bulb is retained as is the small fragment of the platform. There are two flake scars on the dorsal surface. The lower half of the left hand edge of the dorsal side has been worked with soft hammer precussion, becoming more invasive towards the tip of the piercer, which has detatched, possibly during production but potentially after deposition.

Object type: SIDE SCRAPER
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint side scraper on a thick flake of uncertain date - potentially the flake could be Palaeolithic but equally it could be later prehistoric. The secondary flake has been hard-hammer struck from a mottled orange-brown flint. There are additional ancient removals / edge damage on the right hand edge of the ventral surface, but there is also modern damage on the same edge.

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint bladelet with a rubbed end dating to the Late Upper Palaeolithic or early Mesolithic period, c. 40,000 - 7,000 BC. The bladelet has been made from a tertiary flake of a mottled dark brown flint. Part of the platform has been retained and this also appears to have been rubbed, as has the distal end. There are thin flake scars over the dorsal surface. There is possible ancient reutilisation damage on the left hand edge.

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of uncertain bifacially worked lithic implement of possibly of Lower Paleothic date c.500,000-250,000. Description: The fragment is irregularly shaped, with one rounded end (the butt end?), roughly straight sides and a large jagged break at the opposite butt end. There is invasive, scaled low angle retouch across much of it was some short scaled abrupt retouch around the butt end possibly blunting the edge. The large break across the tools width is relatively old as it has begun to recorticate and patinate again. Where visible the fressh flint is pale grey-brown, the patina…

Object type: END SCRAPER
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint end-scraper made on a thick flake of a brown-orange flint. The scraper is sub-square in plan and broadly rectangular in profile, although the large bulb is retained on the reverse. There has been some recortication of the scraper, with this extending over the hard hammer retouching on the right side of the distal end. There are more modern removals (cutting through the patina of the recortication) to the left hand edge. This piece is hard to date as its execution is generally undiagnostic, however it is potentially Palaeolithic (c. 450,000-10,000 BC).
