Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint core formed into a rod like implement, dating to late Neolithic (c. 3300BC-2200 BC). The object is of uncertain function. The flake is lentoid in plan, and oval in cross section. The object has a rounded pointed end and a rounded squared butt. The flake is bifacially worked with invasive, scaled, semi-abrupt re-touch. The flake is cream to grey in colour. There is also evidence the flake has plough rolled. The flake measures 73.3 mm in length, 25 mm wide and 17.5 mm thick. It weighs 36.59 g.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint Scraper of Neolithic date (3450-1500 BC). The lithic is sub-triangular in plan and concavo-convex in section. The dorsal surface is convex and has four predominant negative scars with corresponding arrises. All edges have short parallel flaking and semi- abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is concave and has ripples of percussion emanating from the distal end. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. The flint is dark grey in colour with some cream inclusions throughout. Length: 43.28mm, Width: 32.81mm, Thickness: 10.22mm, Weight: 14.5g.

County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
10 peices of worked flint debitage, with the majority probably dating to the Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age, although some may potentially be earlier (see notes). The assemblage contains at least six different flints, including one flake of chert and two which appear to have originated in beach pebbles. The other sources are of a translucent beige/brown flint (3), more highly patinated pale white/grey flint (1) and mottled pale grey flint (2). The assemblage contains one primary flake (from a beach pebble), four secondary flakes and five tertiary. With the exception of the patinate…

Object type: CORE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint core of probable Late Neolithic to Early Bronze age date, c. 4000-1000 BC. The tertiary core of mottled grey/dark grey flint is broadly trapezoidal in plan and broadly triagular in profile. It exhibits flake and blade-like flake removal scars, struck from a variety of directions, suggesting the core was being rotated around and multiple striking platforms used. The unusually squat form f the core suggests that it is itself potentially a reguvination flake, removed from a larger core, however, although no flakes appear to have ever been removed from it, the edges of the ventral …

An incomplete Late Neolithic to early Bronze Age flint scraper, probably dating to c. 3000-1000 BC. A tertiary flake of brown/beige flint mottled with paler areas and with one ferrous inclusion visible in a break (see below). The flake has natural breaks on two sides, with the proximal end and left edge both lost. The curvature of the ventral face would suggest that near to the flakes original length survivives. All along the curve of the surviving worked edge exhibits retouch (short, sub-parallel/stepped in places, semi-abrupt) on the dorsal face, all struck from the ventral, which is…

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete flint Arrowhead of late Neolithic to Bronze Age date (2500-1200 BC). The object is a barbed and tanged form and is sub-triangular in plan and shallowly pointed oval in section. One of the tangs is missing. Both dorsal and ventral surfaces have covering stepped flaking. The left and right hand edges have fine, low angled retouch. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. The flint a light orange/brown in colour. Length: 42mm, Width: 26mm.
