Three hard hammer struck flakes, two are end scrapers, the third is a simple flake. Tertiary flake, steeply retouched at the distal end to form the convex scraping edge, one side is also similarly retouched along its entire length with a shallow notch (c. 9.5 mm long, 2 mm deep) just below the platform. The flint is dark grey and has a very faint lighter patination. Recent chip to one side of the distal end. 54 x 31.5 x 9 mm, 17 g. Secondary flake, steeply retouched to the distal end to form the convex scraping edge, the retouch becomes less severe on the sides as it approaches the…

Object type: BARBED AND TANGED ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Pembrokeshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Object is an incomplete, flint barbed and tanged arrowhead dating to the Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age c.2500-1500. The arrowhead is made from a flake of flint and is a matte grey colour with occasional white flecks. Almost the entire arrowhead survives apart from one of the barbs, and a slight part of the tip. There is a significant patch of white .grey coloured cortex on one face. The arrowhead is 29.74mm in length, 20.89mm wide and 4.59mm thick. It weighs 1.7 grams. There are several similar example on the PAS Database.

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Complete Leaf-shaped arrowhead, of Green, H. S. (1980) type 4B, the closest being L in the examples for this type. It is of Pale grey flint with a lighter coloured inclusion to one side, all the surfaces are patinated a faint buff colour. Both faces are entirely modified by invasive pressure flaking, no surface of the original “blank” for this arrowhead survives but it would appear the bulb of percussion on the flake this was made from was originally orientated towards the point as it is slightly thicker at this end than the base. Early Neolithic, 4,000 to 3,000 BC.

An edge polished flint axehead probably dating from the late Neolithic, about 3300 - 2200 BC. The butt end of the axe is flat and lozenge shaped in cross section. The axehead is broadly straight sided with a crude slightly convex cutting edge which is pointed oval in cross-section. There are large irregular flake removals on both faces of the axehead which has been polished on one face more extensively than the other. The cutting edge is damaged with a with a large recent flake removal on one face indicated by an area of unpatinated grey flint. The object…

A complete flint Scraper of Neolithic date (3,450-1,200 BC). The object is sub-rectangular in plan and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surface contains a single negative scar. The proximal and distal ends have been blunted. All edges with the exception of the proximal end have short parallel flaking and fine semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is predominantly flat. The lithic retain no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. The flint is grey/brown in colour. Length: 25.16mm, Width: 21.19mm, Thickness: 7.96mm, Weight: 5.9g

A flint saddle quern or polissoir of Neolithic to Iron Age date (c.4500 BC to AD 43). This quern stone is sub-rectangular in shape with one corner having an approximately 90 degree angle. Depending on its original shape which is uncertain, it might have originally been an irregular shape, it is either complete or possibly mostly complete with some loss from one corner and/or an edge or two. The artefact has a length of 345.0mm. It has a maximum width of 175.0mm, averages a width of 160.0mm and is less than c.100.0mm at its narrowest end. The upper surface has been pecked but then …

Less than half of a ground and polished Neolithic axe: - of white and pale grey patinated flint with numerous rusty iron scrapes to the surface from contact with agricultural machinery, there is also a patch or orange, red/brown to one face, truncated by the break, this may have been a sub-cortical surface from the flint “blank” this axe was made from. Only the cutting edge has been recovered, broken transversely in antiquity by a transverse bending fracture probably whilst in use. The break is at roughly 90 degrees to the surface of the axe with one side hinging round towa…

Dark brown chocolate coloured flint, scraper, as kindly identified by the finder. A broad oval flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side from the site of a positive hinged fracture, and with a slightly undulating ventral surface. Angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved end; this working may be supplemented by edge-on chipping from its use. The use of dark brown flint is an occasionally reported feature of high-quality flint working, usually of an earlier date. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500 BC.

An incomplete ground and polished axehead dating to the Neolithic period (c. 4000-2100 BC). The implement is sub-oval in form, tapering to the cutting edge at one end and terminating in a worn break at the oppsing end.

A piece of flint debitage probably from Neolithic Blade production dating to, c. 4000-2400 BC. The object is worked from a tertiary flake of almost matte dark orange brown flint with light grey splotches. The flake is sub-triangular in plan and cross section. The striking platform survives as does a medium sized bulb of percussion from which conchoidal ripples emanate.  Two negative removal scars from the same direction are present on the dorsal face. There is no sign of retouch. The object is 47.5mm long, 23.9mm wide, 8.8mm thick and weighs 9.53 grams. A single …

A notched flake tool of probable later Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. The tool is made from a tertirary flint of semi-glossy dark grey with lighter patches. The flake is trapazoidal in cross section and is sub-triangular in plan. The ventral face has a long shallow crescent notch taken out of one edge that has retoutch on the ventral surface giving it a rough, rather than sharp, edge. There are three prominent removal scars struck in the same direction as the flake on the dorsal surface.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint barbed and tanged arrowhead dating from the late Neolithic to Middle Bronze Age, about 2400 BC - 500 BC. The implement is formed on a tertiary flake of mottled mid grey flint. It is broadly triangular with a narrow pointed projecting tang. The barbs are very slight, but they appear to be complete. The arrowhead is also unusual in having the scaled retouch confined to semi-abrupt removals from the margins, only slightly invasive, leaving the centre of the dorsal face smooth. The point is formed at the proximal end of the flake. Measurements are; length 24.9mm, wid…
