Rectangular shaped piece of mid grey coloured flint. The proximal edge appears abraded and uneven, the distal edge is also uneven but this could be due to a fault within the material on the left side of the edge. The left and right margins are blade like in appearance and could have been utilised as such. The dorsal face is typical in appearance of a piece of material having been removed from a core side. Exhibiting several negative scars on the face. The ventral face is relatively smooth in appearance and texture, a bulb of percussion is still present at the proximal end with some co…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Oval piece of flint which has been subject to intense heat, the dorsal face retains approximately 30% cortex covering which is reddish in colour, probably as a result of heat exposure. The flint itself is two tone grey in colour and exhibits faults and fractures throughout its surface. The cortex is smooth to the touch and typical of material associated with beach pebbles. The edges are ragged and uneven, no obvious indication of retouch along any edge although this could be hidden due to the damage caused by the exposure to intense heat. The ventral face is smooth in appearance a…

Translucent grey coloured piece of flint, plano convex in profile. This piece originated from a core, which was then converted from a flake into what appears to be a serrated blade. The proximal edge appears straight and untouched, while the right and left margins, certainly the left margin has been subject to light retouch along its edge, the right margin isn't so obvious. The upper part of the right margin and distal edge appears flat in profile and may have been broken off the edge is dull implying an older break. The left side of the distal edge terminates into point on its joinin…

Oval piece of dark grey coloured flint with off white inclusions. The dorsal face exhibits several ridges with negative scars, distal edge appears rounded and may have been deliberately manufactured. The right margin is more blunt than the left and could be classed as having been backed, there does appear to be evidence of retouch but it is slight. The left margin is more shallow and sharp in appearance. The proximal edge has been broken implying this implement was much larger. The ventral face is smooth in appearance and texture, some conchoidal rippling present in the surface. Possi…

Irregular ovoid shaped piece of translucent brown coloured flint, with 20% cortex remaining on its surface. The cortex covers the left side of the dorsal face between the proximal and distal edges, the distal edge has more covering, closer inspection of the proximal edge implies that it has been broken or snapped off. The right margin and two thirds of the distal edge are blade like in appearance, with no indication of obvious retouch marks on the edges. The centre of the dorsal face appears to have been struck previously, possibly when it was part of a core. The ventral face is smoot…

Rectangular piece of light grey coloured flint. The dorsal face exhibits a single medial ridge running between the proximal and distal edges. The proximal edge appears flat and may have been part of a core striking platform, while the distal edge appears straight and may have been broken or snapped off. The right margin appears to exhibit some retouch along its upper edge, which could be looked on as a scraper edge. The left margin also appears to have been subject to retouch along its upper area, this appears to be too steep for a blade and more in line with a scraper edge. The ventr…
