Record ID: BERK-DF443B
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: West Berkshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A small waste flake (debitage) of unceratin prehistoric date. The flake is made on a light grey-brown flint as a result of soft hammer percussion. The platform is retained but there is no obvious bulb or fracture lines. The flake has suffered some modern damage. This flake is likely to be of later prehistoric date but it is not particually diagnostic; suggested date: Mesolithic - Bronze Age, c. 8000 - 800 BC.

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A lower palaeolithic handaxe, dating from c. 476,000 - 421,000 BC. The handaxe has been made of a flint nodule that has a greyish-white outer colouring, likely to be from a chalk downlands source. Dating from the Anglian phase of the Lower Palaeolithic, c. 478,000 to 423,000 years ago, the hand axe has bifacial removals made using a hard hammer, such as another stone. Although the hand axe has some post-depositional damage and iron staining, it survives in very good condition. Based on the location of discovery this hand axe probably derived from the Caversham Channel, an ancient rout…
