Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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: 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.

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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 triangular arrowhead dating to the Neolithic period (c. 4000-2200 BC). The object is formed from an opaque mid-grey tertiary flake. The retouch is scaled and covering over both faces, becoming abrupt towards the left hand edge on the dorsal face.  The overall dimensions are as follows: 23.60mm in length, 22.50mm in width, 3.59mm in thickness and 1.83g in weight.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A struck tertiary flint flake of probable Neolithic date, probably a waste flake rather than a finished tool. The flake is 32.8mm in length and struck from a pale grey flint with a patch of iron staining to one side. The dorsal surface has removal scars from several angles and there does not appear to be any retouch to the edges.

A fragment of a Mesolithic or Neolithic knapped flint axe or adze head. This is the rear section of the tool; in cross-section this has a narrow elliptic shape with pointed terminals whilst in plan the side’s tapper to the narrow, rounder butt.  There are multiple flaking scars covering both the ventral and dorsal sides, on one dorsal side the flaking scars and rather smooth and the regular curve of the sides suggest this are may have been partially ground and polished. The middle and forward edge of the artefact is truncated, the resulting break is very uneven. The flint, i…

A stone mace head or pebble hammer of Neolithic or earlier date. The object is made from an oval pebble, 101.5mm in length, 84.4mm wide and 35.8mm thick with an oval cross-section on both the long and short axis. The perforation hole is circular and has an hourglass cross section, tapering on both sides from 38mm diameter at the surface to 20mm at a ridge around the mid point of the channel. The hole was bored from both sides of the stone (to meet in the middle) probably using a rotating drill and sand abrasive. Both ends of the macehead have patches of battering damage suggesting…

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

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…

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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. Length: 44.9mm, Width: 39mm, Thic…

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. The object has been extensively chipped and ground to form a smoth surface. The blade edge has a curved forward and is now chipped. The butt of the axehead is now missing. The stone is a dark grey in colour with some pits and scratches. Comparable examples recorded on the PAS databasse include GLO-EFC8A8, DUR-7380F3 and LVPL-2C1556. The overall dimensions are…

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 flint blade or possibly a tertiary waste flake, struck from a mottled grey flint and of Mesolithic to Neolithic date. The blade is 51.9mm in length and has a triangular cross section. The distal tip terminates in a hinge fracture around an inclusion which may have prevented finishing and there is no evidence of retouch along the sides to suggest that the object is a finished tool.

A Neolithic side scraper made from debitage of blade production dating to, c. 4000-2400 BC. The object is worked from a tertiary flake of mostly dark grey semi glossy flint that has occasional lightbrown and light grey speckles and patches. The flake is sub-rectangular in plan and trapazoidal in cross section. The striking platform survives as does a medium sized bulb of percussion from which sparse shallow conchoidal ripples emanate. At least six negative removal scars struck from the same direction as this flake are present on the dorsal face. There is a small amount of …
