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 …

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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 …

County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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, 47mm long, 10mm wide, 6mm thick and 2.5g in weight. Made on a light semi-translucent caramel brown flint that has turned an opaque light bluish grey through patination. The blade has been struck from a unidirectional blade core as evidence by a number of blade-like removals on the dorsal face. The blade has not been modified, although the proximal end has been prepared to a similar style as the en eperon style of the Upper Palaeolithic.

Palaeolithic (Upper) to Neolithic (Later) notch, 34mm long, 16mm wide, 4mm thick and 3.1g in weight. This elongated flake has been struck from a unidirectional core and was hard hammer struck. The original colour of the flint cannot be determined as the piece has turned entirely light blue through patination. The notch is situated at the proximal end along the left lateral edge. The dorsal face also shows preparation of the face.

Palaeolithic (Middle) to Bronze Age (Later) notch, 34mm long, 16mm wide, 5mm thick and 3.4g in weight. This notch has been made on a blade that possesses a few Levallois characteristics. The notch itself is positioned along the left lateral edge on the ventral face. The dorsal face possesses a central parallel ridge that looks to have been created on the left by centripetal flaking and on the right by the removal of a previous blade, suggesting a recurrent technique. The flint is opaque and light grey in patination.

Palaeolithic (Lower) to Bronxe Age (Later) flake, 48mm long, 28mm wide, 13mm thick and 17.3g in weight. Made on flint/chert that has turned white through patination. Post-depositional damage has left an area of light grey opaque patination also. Hard hammer struck flake with large butt and pronounced bulb. The dorsal ridges suggest a number of unidirectional removals and some orthogonal working. A central ridge has created a trianglur cross-section. The flake is also curved, due to a slight plunged and. .
