  • Thumbnail image of SUR-C2C649

Record ID: SUR-C2C649
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Surrey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A polished Neolithic axehead, 101.9mm in length, which tapers from a maximum of 47.7mm wide near the blade to a narrow butt. The object is knapped from a mottled sandy brown to dark brown flint. There is some chip damage from tumbling to the blade, butt and edges. A concave area of damage to the edge of the blade has been subject to reworking with adrupt to semi-abrupt retouch. This suggests an attempt to re-sharpen after an ancient break and that the axe was used as a functional object.

Record ID: NMS-AE6265
Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Almost complete leaf-shaped arrowhead of Green's (1980) type 3A, closely matching the outline of example h. It was of dark brown flint (as seen in the small recently damaged areas of the edges and, more so, to the butt), now patinated mottled light grey and white. Both faces are invasively pressure flaked with the dorsal face being the most successful with over lapping flake scars covering the surface of the arrowhead, the ventral face has a "blank" area at the centre where the flakes have stopped short and hinged, a common knapping error arising from using a struck flake as a starting…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Neolithic stone axehead (4000 BC-2500 BC). In plan, the sides flare evenly from the butt towards the cutting edge. It is pointed oval in side view and cross-section. This greyish brown axehead is pitted due to weathering except for a few small high spots which are brown and polished. This type of stone does not occur in the Isle of Wight. Length: 149.8mm; width: 56.0mm; thickness: 39.4mm. Weight: c. 420.0g.

The ventral surface displays ripples of percussion radiating from the bulb and striking platform. The dorsal surface retains two small patches of cortex and displays four possible flake removal. Short, abrupt, scaled retouch is present on the right edge of the proximal portion of the object. The flint is a dark grey colour with numerous lighter inclusions of various sizes and fiv…

A complete flint Laurel leaf 'knife' of Neolithic date (3,450-2,100 BC). The lithic is leaf shaped in plan and bi-convex in section. The dorsal surface has invasive stepped flaking with the exception of one area of retained cortex along the proximal left hand edge and proximal edge. All edges have semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface has covering parallel flaking. The lithic retains a minor amount of cortex and is therefore a secondary flake. The flint is a dark grey in colour while the cortex is light brown. Length: 50.40mm, Width: 34.25mm, Thickness: 12.99mm, Weight: 6.9g.

A complete flint Scraper of Neolithic date (3450-2100 BC). The object is sub-ovate in plan and concavo-convex in section. The dorsal surface has covering scaled flaking. The distal, left and right hand edges have rough semi-abrupt retouch. The proximal edge has been blunted. The ventral surface is slightly concave with covering called flaking. The flint light brown in colour with light grey inclusions. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. Length: 38.78mm, Width: 26.83mm, Thickness: 6.95mm, Weight: 10.06g.
