An incomplete probable Levallois waste flake c.250,000BC - 40,000BC. Description: The flake roughly cordate in shape with a pointed end, rounded striking platform proximal end. it has convex edges and little to no retouch. The bulb of percussion is fairly substantial although the conchoidal rippling still visible is minimal. The fleet is heavily patinated a light brown/caramel colour. The pointed end is missing a section as it has broken away. Measurements: 155.52mm long, 60.8mm wide, 33.28mm thick and 480g in weight. Discussion: This flake has been produced by the Levallois techniq…

A very narrow bifacially worked middle Palaeolithic flint handaxe of 500,000 - 180,000 BC date. Description: The handaxe has long narrow ovoid shape in plan and has been bifacially worked. The flaking retouch is covering, scaled (although small area of sub-parralel retouch), low-angle to semi-abrupt. The butt is rounded and has a slightly twisted ovoid cross-seciton. The patination is light white and there is substantial light grey patches, likely chert inclusions. There is also substantial iron staining dark to light brown-orange across it in small lines and spots, fairly typical of …

The reworked tip of bifacially worked probable lower or middle Palaeolithic flint handaxe of 500,000 - 40,000 BC date. Description: The handaxe fragments has been bifacially worked but unclear if this was from a blank or a flank due to small size and extent of later reworking. It has a thin rounded triangular shape in plan, with a slightly convex butt end, rounded point and two slightly convex lateral edges.(mesal). It has been bifacial flaked with covering, scaled, low angled retouch. The butt end has broken and been heavily reworked as a useable tool in antiquity as noted by the fac…

An incomplete ovate lower to middle Palaeolithic flint handaxe of 500,000 - 180,000 BC date. Description: The axe has a thin oval plan and with a pointed slight oval cross-section. It has been bifacial flaked with covering, scaled, low angled retouch. The butt end has broken partway across its width some point in antiquity as noted by the fact it is patinated almost to the same degree as the handaxe. The patination is light off-white and there is substantial light grey patches, likely chert inclusions. There is also substantial iron staining dark to light brown across it in small spot…

A flint core possibly produced with the Levallois technique and dating from the Early Middle Palaeolithic to Late Middle Palaeolithic c.13,000 - 2200 BC. Description: The object is roughly rectangular with a rounded end. The flat end has a single subtantial striking platform and appears ot have substnatial shaping around its edges. The heavy wear and paitnation obscures much for the flaking making its itended use uncertain. Measurements: 85.51mm long, 56.76mm wide, 29.82mm thick and 145.20g in weight.

A heavily patinated and battered lithic waste 'chunk' (debitage) of uncertain prehistoric date. Description: The flake is large and uneven in plan, triangular in cross section. Every edge is heavily battered. The conchoidal rippling and bulb of percussion appear to be quite prominent despite much of it being obscured by very dense blue white patination. The flint here visible through the patination is mid grey in colour. There is substantial iron staining across much of its surface. Measurements: 81.34mm long, 41.36mm wide, 23.1mm thick and 83.26g in weight.

A bifacially flaked flint handaxe of sub-cordate form dating to the Lower Palaeolithic c.500,000-250,000 BC. Description: The handaxe has a rounded butt, wider middle and a rounded pointed cutting end. It has been bifacially worked, with flaking covering both sides, this has been uneven however leaving one side with a deep uneven hinge fracture. In cross-section the handaxe is a pointed oval. The edges are defined by invasive, scaled, angled retouch. The blade edge narrows but not quite to a point but quite thick so is likely sub-cordate. The flint is unpatinated and a dark grey-brown…

An incomplete probable ovate flint handaxe of Lower Palaeolithic date (500,000 - 180,000 BC), Description: The handaxe is incomplete and has a heavily tumbled surface. It was produced via bifacial working with one face being almost entirely destroyed by damage leaving it rough and pitted. The point is rounded and one edge of the remaining face is incomplete also. The flint is the characteristic light brown-orangey 'toffee' colour with some brown to light brown iron staining typical of Palaeolithic flint finds Measurements:79.65mm long, 57.03mm wide, 20.21mm thick and 84.75g in weight.

A possible Mousterian point of Middle Palaeolithic date. Description: The point is roughly triangular in plan and cross-section, with an apparently facetted but end although this is heavily worn. The point is formed by long flaked removals with retouch heavily obscured by patination and recortication but appears to be long scaled low angle retouch. The conchoidal rippling on the flaking is substantial on the dorsal face while the bulb and conchoidal rippling on the ventral side is very subtle, indicating mixed technique used in its production. The flint is heavily patinated white with…

A single flint probable waste flake (debitage) of uncertain possible prehistoric date. Description: The flake is irregularly shaped but with two long edges and two short edges. It has extensive conchoidal rippling and pronounced bulb of percussion indicating production via hard hammer technology. This flake is likely from the production of a blade or similar object.

A flint double ended scraper probably of late Mesolithic to Neolithic date, c.8000BC - 3300BC, an early date as early as the upper later Palaeothic cannot be discounted. Description: The scraper has two rounded ends and two flat perpendicular edges, leaving it irregular in shape. The dorsal face has uneven flaking. The scraping edges are formed from short scaled semi-abrupt retouch and are along each rounded endge and one of the flat eedge opposite the bulb of percussion.

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…

A incomplete possibly Late Paleolithic uncertain tool - possible a knife or scraper dating from circa 100,000 to 10,000 BC.. The tool is sub-ovular in plan with a straight edge on one end - possibly a break. The dorsal surface has a roughly central ridge curving to the left at the rounded end, with an inverted y-shaped ridge at the straight end. The ventral surface is smooth, with the bulb of percussion at the straight end. The edges appear retouched to all except the straight (broken) end. The colour is mainly white with grey and brown marks, and it is not opaque. The object is 72.02m…

An uncertain flaked lithic implement probably dating to the early-Middle - early Upper Palaeolithic. Description: The object is formed from a secondary flake and is pointed with a wide rounded butt end. The dorsal face is slightly dished from a previous flake removal. There is invasive flaking along the edges of the dorsal edges. The point is formed from invasive retouch from both the dorsal and ventral faces. This work around the point obliterates evidence of the bulb of percussion, the conchoidal rippling on the ventral side is relatively subtle although still visible. The flint is …
