Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Surrey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A slightly pointed and curved flint blade, 44.6mm in length, of Mesolithic date, struck from a mottled light grey coloured flint. The blade has not been retouched and the distal tip has been lost. The proximal end retains a striking platform with battering damage and a small bulbar scar on the ventral surface from soft hammered removal. The dorsal surface has parallel removal scars, one of which terminates in a hinge fracture.

A flint tranchet axe or 'Thames pick' of Mesolithic date, 143mm in length and made from a heavily recorticated dark grey flint with a pale brown to white surface. The pick is sub rectangular, with parallel sides and a lozengiform cross section, with flake removals across all sides. The distal end is wedge-shaped in profile with a pointed cutting edge worked with tranchet removals and long, parallel and low angle retouch. The butt end is rounded and heavily battered.

A flint tranchet axe or 'Thames pick' of Mesolithic date, 166mm in length and made from a pale grey flint. The pick is narrow, with parallel sides and a sub triangular cross section, with flake removals across all sides. The distal end is wedge-shaped in profile with a pointed cutting edge which demonstrates battering damage, some of which may relate to usage. There are two patches of light brown cortex on the dorsal surface and across the butt end.

A complete flint Scraper of Mesolithic date (9000-3450 BC). The object is sub-rectangular in plan and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surface contains three predominant negative scars. All edges have semi-abrupt retouch with the exception of the proximal edge, which is abruptly blunted. The ventral surface is predominantly flat with the exception of a small negative scar at the proximal end. The lithic retain no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake.

A collection of five flints bearing evidence of human modification. The collection consists of five struck flakes including a blade. The remaining flakes are likely waste flakes. The finds have a reasonable patina. The finds are likely to be late Mesolithic or early Neolithic in date.

A flint core, worked from a dark brown flint and of Mesolithic or late date, 75.2mm in length. The core has a striking platforms at both ends with blade removals all around. The platforms are not well prepared and on one side there is a substantial hinge fractured removal, probably caused by being struck with excessive force.

A flint bladelet core, 27.9mm in length and made from a dark grey flint. One side retains a light brown cortex. There is a single striking platform; the pronounced negative bulbs of percussion and concave removal scars suggest a hard hammer percussion has been used to remove the flakes. Whilst the form is typically Mesolithic, a later date is also possible.

A flint probable scraper of uncertain date, Mesolithic to Iron Age, 10,000 BC - 1 BC. It is formed on a tertiary flake of mottled brown flint with red tinges, which has repatinated on some faces. This may suggest a date at the latter end of the range. There are various removal scars on the edges, some of which may be damage, and an area of short, scaled, semi-abrupt probably intentional retouch on the right edge for use as a scraper. Measurements are; length 34.4mm, width 24.5mm, thickness 11.4mm and weight 10.28g. The flint was found in the same area as another flint SWYOR-537AB…
