Palaeolithic (Upper) to Neolithic (Later) unretouched blade, 48mm long, 24mm wide, 9mm thick and 11.9g in weight. This piece has almost been prepared in the same way as a crested flake. The core was struck orthogonally which left the central and parallel ridge on the dorsal face of this piece. The left side still possesses cortex which demonstrates inital stages of core working. The striking platform and the proximal end of the piece has been worked to facilitate a structure remaoval of the blade-like flake. The flint is a mid caramel brown semi-translucent flint that has started to tu…

Palaeolithic (Upper) to Neolithic (Later) unretouched blade, 31mm long, 19mm wide, 5mm thick and 3.7g in weight. This is only a fragment of a blade struck from a bidirectionally prepared blade core. The piece has a triangular cross-section and is missing its proximal end. The break is likely to have happened during knapping as the light blue patination that is starting to cover the piece is visble on the broken surface in the same consistency. The dorsal face possesses 4 blade-like parallel flaking scars. The flint was originally a translucent light caramel brown.

Palaeolithic (Upper) to Neolithic (Early) retouched blade, 35mm long, 13mm wide, 3mm thick and 1.8g in weight. Piece made on a translucent light caramel brown flint that has started to turn light blue through patination. The butt and the proximal end has been removed and the entire piece has been continuously retoiched to create a fine serated edge. The piece appears to have been soft hammer struck and the dorsal face has been extensively flaked from a unipolar direction. The blade may have been used as a small knife or even a projectile but more likely to be the classic backed blade o…

Palaeolithic (Middle) to Neolithic (Later) unretouched blade, 37mm long, 21mm wide, 6mm thick and 5.6g in weight. Made on an opaque light brown patinated flint that has been struck from a unipolar core. Both the proximal and distal ends are missing, presumed broken. The dorsal face possesses a central and parallel positioned ridge that has been made by the removal of a blade. Another blade was attempted to remove the cortex but this attempt was not successful.

Palaeolithic (Middle) to Neolithic (Later) serrated blade, 31mm long, 16mm wide, 4mm thick and 2.7g in weight. Made on a semi-translucent flint that is now light grey through patination and becoming opaque. The striking platform was prepared and is similar to the en eperon style of the Upper Palaeolithic. The dorsal face has a central and almost parallel ridge that was created by two previous unidirectional removals. The right lateral edge has received some light retouch along the entire edge that has serrated the edge.

Palaeolithic (Middle) to Neolithic (Later) end scraper, 28mm long, 38mm wide, 4mm thick and 6.7g in weight. Made on a short and wide flake that has been struck from a multi-directional core. The flint/chert is an opaque light brown colour through patination. The long distal end has been mostly modified by semi-abrupt retouch. Large bulb of percussion suggests hard hammer technique and the dorsal face possesses multi-directional flake scars.

Palaeolithic (Lower) to Neolithic (Later) combination tool, 49mm long, 21mm wide, 7mm thick and 7.2g in weight. The chert is light orangey brown and opaque. The butt is large and the dorsal scars suggest unidirectional flaking. The notch is positioned along the right lateral edge and is on the ventral face. Along the left lateral edge abrupt retouch has been applied to form a scraper edge.

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Paleolithic flint handaxe, dating to the period c. 500,000 BC- c.40,000 BC. The handaxe is broadly circular in shape, measuring 99.43mm in length, 80.94mm wide and 34.03mm thick. In colour, the axehead is creamy-white to grey and flecks of light brown, with the ventral face being more grey-brown. The axehead has abraded flake scars; it is possible that these have been water washed resulting in the creation of a smooth dorsal. Evidence of multi-face working can be seen around the edges of this face. The edges of this axe have a slight S shaped undulating profile characteristic of axes…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint possible edge-polished fragment. A chunk of lentoid section with an apparently curving cutting edge with polishing immediately adjacent to it, but otherwise bearing the scars of covering scalar working entailing hard hammer removal of a small number of large flakes. Though the putative cutting edge is crisp, the object is broken c.40mm behind it. All surfaces, including the putative fracture surface, are identically covered by a dense creamy patina and are iron stained, features suggesting a prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment followed by incorporation in gravels. This…
