Three flint flakes/tools, all made from a light grey flint which has some white patches. Left- Sub-triangular in plan, all the corners are rounded. There is some possible retouch along the edges. This is a blade, probably late Mesolithic in date. Middle- Irregular shaped fragment with one rounded edge. This is most likely to be a flake of early Neolithic date. Right- Late Mesolithic blade, the upper end is pointed and has been retouched on both sides of this point. There is a median ridge running the length of the blade.

Three flint tools/flakes. Left- A light brown/orange material. It is possibly a late Neolithic tranchet arrowhead. Sub-triangular in plan with the two upper sides being slightly concave and a median ridge on each point from the centre. Middle- Grey material which fades from a dark to a light shade from top to bottom. Irregular in plan with one curved edge. Possibly a late Neolithic- Early Bronze Age scraper. Right- Light grey material. This is most likely debitage but could have been re-used to form a scraper. It is difficult to see the detail from the image

Flint implement, probably an unfinished arrowhead, most likely Neolithic in date. In cross-section it is triangular with a central ridge running the length where two flakes have been removed. Both long sides have been worked with small pieces having been chipped off. The base of the arrowhead has been worked to start to form the shaft but it is not complete. The flint is a light grey with large white patches.

Flint implement, probably a scraper, most likely Neolithic in date. It is sub-oval in plan with a sub-oval cross section. One half of one face is covered in cortex. The flint is a grey colour with small white patches. The edge opposite the cortex edge has been worked to form a sharp edge. Flakes have been taken off much of the surface on both faces.

Flint implement, probably Neolithic to Bronze Age in date. The flint is a grey colour with small white and black patches. There are also some patches of the cortex remaining. It is a large core which has had flakes taken off all over, one end has been worked in particular. This end has a sub-rectangular extension with a rounded end and has been worked on all edges. This extension could be used as a tool, perhaps a borer or something similar.

Small flint piece, possibly a small blade. It is made from a white flint with a greyish centre. The bulb of percussion is visible at the base. On the upper (dorsal) surface two flake have been taken off down the central line giving a trapezoidal cross section. This is probably a piece in the process of being worked into a tool which did not continue.

Small flint flake from the prehistoric period, Meolithic- Neolithic. It is made from a white flint with a greyish centre. It is sub-rectangular in plan with an indent on each side at the same level and uneven edges all around. There is a ridge which runs the length of the flake.

Broken flint blade, possibly a Mesolithic knife. It is sub-rectangular in plan with one broken edge where it has snapped. It is made from a toffee-coloured flint with some darker brown and lighter orange patches.The front face (as the photograph) has a large flake taken from the centre running top to bottom with a smaller one either side. At the top is a small fragment of cortext surface, the bulb of percussion is also at this end. The right hand side has been retouched all the way down from the point at the top to where the blade has broken. The other edges do not appear t…

A group of 8 small flint flakes, possibly Mesolithic in date. Ranging in size from 20.25mm x 10.27mm to 27.23mm x 16.45mm with a group weight of 13.2g. It is difficult to date flint precisely when it has been found out of context as a stray find, so a cautious date has been assigned to these. Their size suggested to Dr. Young that they could be Mesolithic.

A group of 5 small flint blades, possibly Mesolithic in date. They are all sub-rectangular in plan and have broken at either one or both ends. It is possible they are Mesolithic microliths. Ranging in size from 39.78mm x 10.22mm to 18.41mm x 12.81mm with a group weight of 7.0g. It is difficult to date flint precisely when it has been found out of context as a stray find, so a cautious date has been assigned to these.

Three flint cores from the prehistoric period. They all have flakes taken off them and are irregular in shape. They are made from a dark grey flint with lighter patches. In total they weigh 37.9g. As they are cores, with no defining features it is difficult to date them precisely when they have been found out of context as stray finds, so a wide date has been assigned to them.

Two secondary flint flakes from a core. Both are from a greyish-brown flake. One is semi-circular in plan with the rounded edge having a line of cortex remaining. The straight edge is the base with the bulb of percussion. It is 33.53mm wide and 7.32mm thick. It weighs 4.2g. The other flake is sub-triangular with a small fragment of cortex. It is 21mm wide and 24.5mm long. It weighs 2.8g. It is difficult to date flint precisely when it has been found out of context as a stray find, so a broad date has been assigned to these.

Three flint flakes dating from the Mesolithic period through to the Bronze Age. They all show signs of recortication (a physical change to the flint caused by acid rain). They range in size from 39.02mm x 23.82m to 29.66mm x 17.97mm with a combined weight of 16.2g. It is difficult to date flint precisely when it has been found out of context as a stray find, so a broad date has been assigned to these.

Flint awl on a primary flake, dating from the Mesolithic period through to the Bronze Age. The outer face is almost entirely covered in the cortext surface. The piece has a triangular terminal at the top (as the photograph) which has been retouched along both edges to form the point. The lower end is the bulb of percussion and as such is wider and rounded at the base being 9.71mm wide compared to 3.7omm at the top. On one edge a triangular section has been taken out, it is difficult to tell if this was deliberate or is the shape of the flint naturally. It is difficult…

Flint scraper dating from the late Neolithic period through to the Bronze Age. It is sub-oval in shape with rounded edges. It has a D-shaped cross, section, the flat reverse has the cortex still in place. The flint is dark brown colour with some patches and flecks of black, light brown and white. The bulb of percussion and the striking platform can be seen at the base. Most of the edges have been worked with retouching visible also to make a thin edge. Flint 1
