Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete Paleolithic uncertain tool - possibly a scraper dating from circa 200,000 to 10,000 BC.. The tool is sub-ovular in plan with an area of cortex at one end. The dorsal surface has a roughly central ridge with a shorter ridge to the side. The ventral surface is smooth and slightly dished, with the bulb of percussion at the opposite end to the cortex. The edges appear retouched to all except the cortex. The colour is mainly white with red andgrey marks and a red oval area runs along the central ridge, and it is not opaque. The object is 66.53 mm long, 36.10mm wide & 11.71mm …

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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 …

Object type: DENTICULATE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probable flint denticulate of probable early Palaeolithic date. Description: The denticulate is formed from a curved tear drop shaped (in plan) secondary flake with a wider butt end and serration and denticulate removals on the concave edge. The distal face is slightly dished from a previous large removal and has short scaled abrupt retouch, creating a denticulate saw edge formed by two steeply retouched notches. The flint has smooth white cortex along the convex edge of the flint and is very smooth, allowing ease of use. The flint is white grey and has substantial off-white cortex…

County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A piece of lithic 'debitage' or waste flake of uncertain prehistoric date. Description: Irregularly shaped flake of translucent grey flint with some brown cortex remaining, probably a tertiary removal. Irregular bulb of percussion but substantially directional rippling and hinge fracture. Apparent small retouch likely to be accidental damage rather than human action. Measurements: 58.46mm long, 26.44mm wide, 10.50mm thick and 12.77g in weight.

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
The tip of a bifacially flaked flint handaxe dating from the Lower Palaeolithic c.500,000-250,000 BC. Description: The handaxe survives only as a the pointed tip and is roughly pointed. It has been bifacially worked, with flaking covering both sides, this has been uneven however leaving one side much thicker than the other leaving it plano-convex in cross-section. The edges are defined by invasive, scaled, low angled retouch. Some of the flaking appears to be quite haphazard leaving hinge fractures and a large patch of cortex on one side. The Break is large and rounded and likely rela…

Object type: BURIN
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probable flint burin dating from the Upper-Palaeolithic to early Neolithic date, although earlier date seems likely. Description: The burin is formed from a small flake of pointed flake, with one long edge. The triangular point has a long edges with some flaking on, which actually has short scaled semi-abrupt retouch at the proximal end (end where the flake was removed) and short edge with scaled short abrupt retouching flattening this edge. A spall or burin removal from this retouched platform created by this crushing/flattening retouch. This burin retouch creates a small gaugin…

County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A large possible lower-middle Palaeolithic flint scraper. Description: The object is formed from an irregular flint flake triangular in cross-section. The dorsal face is quite high which helps form this cross section. The bulb of percussion on the reverse is fairly shallow although the discoidal rippling is very pronounced. There is a removal flake across where the bulb of percussion which suggest a level of shaping. The wide outside edge of the tool appears to be the working edge with short scaled abrupt retouch along a small section abutting the striking platform end. The rest of…

Object type: CORE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint core of uncertain age possibly Paleolithic in date. Description: The core is roughly oval in plan with and a roughly semi-circular cross-section. It has substantial shaping removals off one face and two large removals on the other. The largest of these, which was produced with a pressure hinge fracture removal may have produced a rounded scraping flake. The striking platform of this flake had substantial flaking preparation before its removal. The core is a mid-caramel brown colour. Measurements: 65.9mm long, 44.36mm wide, 28.85mm thick and 86.23g in weight. Discussio…

Object type: HAMMERSTONE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint hammerstone of uncertain prehistoric date. Description: Is roughly semi-circular in cross-section. The hammerstone has large amounts of crushing at the rounded end and accidental removals along two faces indicating its use a a hammerstone. The flatter sides may have been prepared for its uses as a hammerstone as the intentional flakes helping flatten these edges. The edges of the flat end have also had intentional crushing to blunt the edges to make it safer to use, this can be described as invasive scaled abrupt retouch. The other sides are rounded and covered in cortex. h…

County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
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…
