Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Neolithic flint leaf-shaped arrowhead, probably dating to c. 4,000-2,400 BC. A small, bifacially worked piriform tertiary flake of translucent beige flint wih occasional white inclusions. Both faces exhibit parallel, invasive, low angle retouch around their perimeter, with a small area of short, scalar, low angle retouch below and to the left of the point on one face. Dimensions: length 49.1mm; width 34.3mm; thickness 16.6mm; weight 5.53g.

County: North Lincolnshire

Grey flint scraper. A small thick chunk with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with similarly broad flakes struck from a bulbar ventral surface - it might be debated which side was originally which. Short abrupt retouch executed from the ?dorsal aspect follows a curved end opposite a broad butt and striking platform. A misty white p[atina may suggest the object has been exposed to a calcareous environment after its deposition. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 21.4mm, Width: 18.1mm, Thickness: 8.4mm, Weight: 3.79gms

Object type: FLAKED AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Neolithic (4000 - 2,100 BC) flint flaked axehead with possible (old) damage to the butt end. The axehead has an elliptical cross-section, being rather flatter on one face than the other. This face has transverse flake removals behind the cutting edge for c.one third of the length of the axehead. The cutting edge (41.7mm wide) is convex in shape and slightly lop-sided. Otherwise flake removals, to both faces, are from the centre towards the edge. The more convex face has a central ridge of coretex, tapering off to one edge just before the butt-end (21.2x19.3mm). At this point, the but…

Secondary, hard hammer struck flake from a cylindrical corticated nodule, of grey flint with some spotty iron stains. One edge is steeply retouched from the ventral face to form a scraper, the opposing edge is shallowly notched (c. 12 mm dia.) with steep retouch from the dorsal face.

County: North Yorkshire

Flint possible debitage. A small flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb on the ventral surface, the latter with adjacent striking platform. A dense creamy patina suggests the object has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment, while orange spots may hint at its subsequent incorporation in gravels. Broken in antiquity. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 18mm, Width: 18.7mm, Thickness: 4.7mm, Weight: 1.80gms

Secondary, hard hammer struck flake, with thin, worn cortex extant. Of slightly brown patinated grey flint, the distal end is retouched to form the scraping edge in the usual manner. The scraper is recently damaged, with semi-invasive flake scars, mostly to the ventral face, being unpatinated.

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary, semi-hard hammer struck, and rather thin flake, of largely unpatinated pale grey flint with white, mottled inclusions and faint, small iron oxide staining to parts of both faces. The bulb of percussion is partially removed by a flake removal on the ventral face, struck from the side of the platform. The distal end is steeply retouched to form the scraping edge, and both lateral edges are irregularly retouched. Flake scars to the dorsal face all run the same way as the flake itself, indicating that this piece was struck from a single platform core. Neolithic, possibly early.

Possible Early Neolithic (-3500 to -2900) knapped flint borer or piercer: The borer is an asymmetrical sub rectangle in plan with an off centre protrusion from the lower edge. This protrusion is possibly a fragment of the piercer of the borer which is purposefully knapped, although the tip may be missing. The ventral surface has a single negative flake scar, and conchoidal rings, bulbar scars and a bulb of percussion. The dorsal surface has three vertical negative flake scars. The flint is a mottled mid grey colour. It measures 38.22mm long and 18.67mm wide. It weighs 4.7g. The borer …

Pale grey flint possible debitage. A small chunk with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and a bulbar ventral surface, and with denser patina on one side which may indicate the reuse of a previously worked flint.

A flint scraper and retouched incomplete flint flake of probable later Prehistoric date. 1. A large, sub-rectangular tertiary flake of beige-brown flint mottled with areas of sandy, cortex-like inclusions. The dorsal face exhibits a number of irregularly sized removals, all probably from the same platform as the overall removal, some abrasion along the dorsal end of the striking platform would suggest the use of platform preparation.The bulb of percussion is relatively diffuse, allthough this is likely down to the nature of the raw material, and is unscarred. The left and distal edges…

Flint debitage. Eight small thin chips or flakes from hard hammer working, all with flakes struck from their dorsal sides, and the largest three with bulbs at one end of their ventral surfaces, the rest being mostly flat on the ventral side.
