Lithic point dating from the Palaeolithic to the Bronze Age. Its possible age covers a potentially vast span of time, from c. 100,000 years ago to c. 800 BC. The point is made on a triangular shaped flake, with evidence of invasive knapping on both faces and along the edges. There is a prominent bulb of percussion on the ventral face, which is suggestive of hard hammer knapping technique. The dorsal face features invasive large flake removals across the surface of the flake, with small 'retouch' along the right edge, and blunted retouch along the left edge. The flint is dark brown i…

County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible Levalloisian core flake. Sub-oval in shape with a lenticular cross-section. The flaking appears intentionally to have shaped the flint while still on the original core, creating a distinctive 'tortoise shell' flaking, typical of Levallois flint technology. The ventral face shows a prominent bulb of percussion indicating probable use of a hard hammer. The flint is opaque and mid-grey with a mid-gloss patina but is now covered in a smooth off-white recortification except for an area of modern damage on the right side margin of the dorsal face which exposes the natural colour o…

A complete, struck / knapped quartzite pointed biface handaxe of Lower and / or Middle Palaeolithic dating (c. 800, 000 BC to c. 250,000 BC). The biface has good evidence of working on both interior (upper) and exterior (lower) faces, making it a biface handaxe (Graf, A., 2004, 84). Approximately 75% of the total surface has been worked, with the original surface or cortex covering the remaining 25% of the surface. The interior face has been fully worked. The biface has an ovoid shape with a slight tapering towards the tip, with a rounded thick profile which thins at the tip. The but…

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An Acheulian greensand chert handaxe of 'ovate' type. The axe is well thinned and both faces exhibit large, shallow flake scars all over with only minor secondary edge working. The slightly irregular cutting edge extends around the entire axe, including the slightly squared butt, and the piece exhibits a marked S-twist. The chert is mid orange-brown and fine grained, largely reflecting the original colour (seen in areas of minor edge damage); the patina on one face is matt, the other slightly semi-gloss. Flake scar ridges are slightly abraded but there is no evidence for prolonged …

County: Dorset

An Acheulian greensand chert handaxe of 'ficron' type with an elongated tapering point and larger rounded butt. Both faces are carefully flaked to produce a lenticular cross section, thinning along the axis of the axe to a fine blunt-pointed tip. The margins of the axe are slightly convex and also carefully worked to form even centre line edges. The sub-squared butt is formed from two natural fractures and has been battered to blunt the edge created by axial flaking on the opposite face. The original chert seems to be variable mid brown-grey and particularily fine grained. Surface…

An Acheulian greensand chert handaxe of 'cordate' type. Both faces are flaked all over by indeterminate mode percussion. One face has a well-developed convex flake pattern, the other has a slightly off-centre axial ridge, enhanced by a well-developed hinge fracture to one side. The waist of the axe is relatively thick, and the asymmetrical butt has a wedge shaped axial profile. The chert was originally mid to dark orange brown and now has a slight repatination, all surfaces are matt. One area of hard greensand remains, forming part of the waist of the axe. There is slight abrasion …

Palaeolithic (Upper) to Neolithic (Later) unretouched blade, 51mm long, 20mm wide, 7mm thick and 8.4g in weight. Made on a flint/chert that has turned a multitude of coulours through patination, including lght browns, blues and greys. The distal end still retains its original cortex as do both lateral edges. The central part of the dorsal face exhibits a flaked area of a number of unidirectional scars. Early stages of the creation of a blade core using a cortical nodule of stone presumably from a river.

Palaeolithic (Upper) to Neolithic (Later) unretouched blade, 59mm long, 23mm wide, 12mm thick and 12.7g in weight. Made on a flint/chert that has turned a multitude of coulours through patination, including lght browns, blues and greys. The distal end still retains its original cortex and the right lateral edge is a large flake scar produced by an orthogonal removal. The centre of the dorsal face possesses two small parallel ridges created by unidiretional flaking.
