Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete possible Neolithic flint implement, possibly knife (c. 4000 BC-c. 2351 BC). This implement is an elongated sub-oval shape, sub-triangular in cross-section. The dorsal face has been flaked but about a third of the surface at the proximal end is mainly covered in cortex. The edges have been retouched with short abrupt, parallel and sub-parallel removals. However, at the left edge (as viewed) adjacent to the cortex, the removals are very crude. The ventral face is undulating and has four major flake removals. The arrises are sharp on both faces This implement is grey with a …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint Scraper of Mesolithic to Neolithic date (9000-1500 BC). The lithic is sub-rectangular in plan, tapers in toward the distal end, and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surface has short parallel flaking to the left and eight hand edges. The proximal edge has been abruptly blunted while the distal end tapers to a point. All edges with the exception of the blunted proximal edge have fine semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is predominantly flat with a single negative scar situated at the proximal end, exposing some calcite inclusions, above which is a small bulb of …

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Secondary, hard hammer struck flake, of yellowish patinated mottled grey flint, unusually, the proximal end is steeply retouched to form the scraping edge, removing the bulb in the process. One lateral edge is broadly concave, but appears to be recently damaged, the distal end is retouched to form an angled, beak-like small scraping edge.

Record ID: GAT-D41A6F
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Gwynedd
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A broken axe head. The find represents the cutting edge end of a Neolithic polished axe head belonging to the Group VII (Graig Lwyd) classification. It is sub-rectangular in plan; tapering towards a transverse break at the point the axe was likely hafted. It seems likely this break occurred in antiquity. In section it is sub-ovate with flattened sides. The blade, mostly intact, bares evidence of use, and has retained a defined edge. The faces of the axe are defined by marks and fractures which vary in intensity. One face bears deeper scars than the other. The axe belongs to the Grou…

A retouched flint blade flake. Sub-oval with a rounded distal end, the proximal end has been snapped and it has a trapezoidal cross section. The flint is semi-translucent mid-grey and has a mid-gloss patina. The dorsal face shows three linear blade flake removal scars and very fine scaled, semi-abrupt retouch along the right side margin and distal end. The ventral face is concave and shows no apparent bulb of percussion indicating probable use of a soft hammer. Date: Neolithic - c 4000 BC to 2350 BC. Dimensions: 37.5mm x 22.9mm x 4.4mm. Weight: 5.5g.
