Neolithic to early Bronze Age (c. 4000 to 1000BC) scraper: The scraper appears to be knapped from a tertiary flake which is a sub-oval. The dorsal surface has multiple re-touch scars and damage. At the proximal end there is slightly invasive and abrupt re-touch. The ventral surface has no visible bulb of percussion, but has faint conchoidal ripples. The scraper is knapped from flint which has a thick cream coloured patina with a dark grey flint revealed where there is damage. It measures 59.16mm long, 44.79mm wide, 10.41mm thick and weighing 30.06g. The scraper is probably a rounded…

County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Neolithic flint axehead dating to period c. 3500-2200 BC. The flint is covered in a white patina with its surface still showing traces of cortex in places. The flint has been bifacially worked, with flakes removed in a variety of directions and worked into a broadly sub-rectangular shape. The blade has a C-shaped plan and has a polished tip. The butt is missing due to an old break. The flint axehead measures 65.19mm in length, 35.20mm wide (blade) and 6.43 9.81mm thick (blade). It weights 56.31 g

County: Buckinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint piece of debitage of Neolithic-Bronze Age date (3550-1150 BC). The object is sub-ovate in plan and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surface contains 6 predominant negative scars with corresponding arrises. All edges have some rough semi-abrupt retouch. There is a minor amount of cortex retained along the proximal edge. The ventral surface has covering scaled flaking. The lithic retains a minor amount of cortex and is therefore a secondary flake. The flint is a mid-grey in colour and the cortex is a dark cream. Length: 45.85mm, Width: 39.92mm, Thickness: 14.09mm,…

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a Neolithic (c. 4000-2351 BC) knapped flint blade tip. The blade is brown and slightly translucent, with evidence of extensive knapping on the dorsal surface. This lithic was created by striking a long flake from a flint core, and by subsequently working one face to produce a thinned, sharp edged tool. The ventral face is unworked, and the remains of the percussion scars are visible, radiating toward the blunted tip from the lower (now missing) butt of the object, where the bulb of percussion would have been located. The dorsal face has been extensively worked, though n…

Object type: ADZE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Approximately half of a sub-triangular sectioned adze, broken transversely in antiquity, only the butt remains. It is of mottled grey flint with light grey wispy patination and spotty iron stains to some of the high points. A small area of cortex remains on the ventral face towards the butt. All flake scars are hard hammer struck. Flint adzes where produced during the Mesolithic through to the Neolithic, the earlier examples usually exhibit a transverse sharpening flake removal (tranchet) to sharpen the cutting edge, the Neolithic examples lack this feature, the cutting edge is formed …
