Lithic flake implement of probable Bronze Age date c. 2500 - 800BC. The implement is composed of dark grey flint with mottled light grey inclusions. The flake is irregularly shaped and was knapped from a larger core or nodule. Despite the long edge being thin and sharp, there is limited evidence of retouch along the edge which would suggest refinement of the working edge. The flake was likely knapped via hard hammer technique as the curving fracture scar on the ventral face suggests that it was removed with significant force and perhaps with limited precision. There is evi…

Red-brown flint lithic implement. A thick flake with a sub-triangular point at one end. The dorsal side bears the rippled scar from the removal of a large flake by hard hammer strike; the ventral surface is flat. Short angled retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the longest curving edge. This is limited by one of the slightly concave sides of a worn point, suggesting use of that part of the object as a borer. The opposite edge to the point bears possibly angled scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect, though some or all of these shallow scars may be the result of fo…

Probably a palaeolithic flint tool reused in the later prehistoric period, possibly as a knife or other cutting tool. The tool is of a dark brown/black flint, rolled and with significant areas of iron staining. At more recent removal scars the flint can be seen to be mottled with cloudy white areas and rare white inclusions. The tool is D-shaped in plan, and with a truncated pointed oval cross section, with the dorsal face being more pronouncedly curved than the ventral. The initial working of the tool is bifacial, with covering, sub-parallel semi-abrupt retouch on the dorsal face …

Grey flint with cortex, possibly collected from the East Coast, lithic implement. Long flake with cortex trimmed by the removal of long parallel flakes, and with a bulb on the ventral surface. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect trimmed the narrower end. Either very short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect, or damage arising from use, appears along the putative cutting edge. The opposite edge is trimmed flat so as to permit pressure to be exerted. At the other end, cortex is trimmed by short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect, so the…

An incomplete flint lithic implemet, probably a piercer, dating to Late Bronze Age (c. 1150-800). The piercer is old broken on one side and retains no traces of the original cortex (tertiary flake). The dorsal surface shows three different, negative flake scars and a series of scaled smaller scars, possibly due to modern field working. There are no visible striking platform or bulb of percussion. There is a short, scaled and semi-abrupt retouch. The flint is a semi-translucent grey with lighter colour inclusions. The flint is 56.31mm in length, 36.44mm in width, 7.52mm in thick an…

Pale grey flint lithic implement. A D-shaped flake with its straight edge and butt formed by a positive hinged fracture. Broad flakes have been struck from the dorsal side with a bulb on the ventral. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the curved edge except for one short extent, where very short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect modifies the cutting edge to provide a small scraping tool. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 25.7mm, Width: 40.8mm, Thickness: 7.1mm, Weight: 8.53gms

A complete knapped lithic implement of probable Late Neolithic or Bronze Age date (c. 3000-1500 BC). The implement has been manufactured on a struck flake of dark black flint with small white inclusions. The flake has had its platform intentionally removed, although the presence of two prominent cones of percussion indicates that hard hammer percussion was probably the method of detachment. Secondary modification of the piece is limited to a small patch of retouch on the proximal end which incorporates a small shallow notch, as well as another small patch on the mesial section of the …

A complete knapped flint side-scraper or retouched flake of probably Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date, c. 3000-1500 BC. The tool has been manufactured on a tertiary flake of light grey flint which in places lightenes to a yellowy off-white colour. In plan view, the flake curves round slightly, with several negative flake scars visible on its upper surface. The bulb of percussion and platform have been intentionally removed by the knapper, possibly as a way of making the tool easier to hold. Secondary modification of the piece consists rather widely-spaced direct and semi-abrup…

A complete flint side and end scraper of Bronze Age date (2350-801BC). The implement is sub-oval in plan and is knapped from a secondary flake with previous removal scars on the dorsal surface and remaining cortex near the left medial edge. There is a pronounced bulb of percussion and erailleur scar indicative of the hard hammer technique. Retouch is relatively crude and uneven which identifies this as a later prehistoric tool (see Butler 2005 p. 166). Short, scaled semi-abrupt retouch extends continuously along the left edge and the distal end. The flint is a light grey with lar…

Flint lithic implement. Leaf shaped flake with a bulb on its ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect follows one long curving edge and also the adjacent curved end; the opposite long edge is flat and would facilitate a grip when using the cutting edge. Dense creamy patina suggests the object endured a long period of exposure after its deposition. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 40.8mm, Width: 21.1mm, Thickness: 8mm, Weight: 7.88gms.

Grey-buff flint with cortex lithic implement. Flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and a concave ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect forms a notch in one long side. Further short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect also follows a small curved edge or 'nose'. The ventral side accumulated light misty patina suggesting a short period of exposure before it was interrupted by invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect, again concentrated towards the 'nose'. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Le…

Dark grey flint lithic implement. Flake with two broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a flat rippled ventral surface. Angled invasive scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved end, while very short abrupt retouch defines a notch in one side, and forms a cutting edge along the opposite long edge. A complete lack of patina may suggest this object was incorporated into a sealed deposit very shortly after its deposition. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.

A flint lithic implement of late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date (c. 2500 - 1600 BC). The implement is struck off a tertiary flake and retains no cortex. The dorsal surface exhibits two parallel longitudinal flake scars from previous flake removal. It exhibits long sub-parallel low angle retouch running from the proximal end, along one mesal edge and around the distal end which has been shaped into a point. The ventral surface exhibits a low, diffuse bulb of percussion, part of which has been removed by retouch on the dorsal surface. It exhibits a combination of long and invasive s…

A natural flake with evidence of retouch, probably dating to the Late Bronze Age (1000-800BC). The object is oval in shape with evidence of short, scaled, semi-abrupt retouch along two of the edges. Kevin Leahey notes that this is likely an "opportunistic" flint made in later Prehistory from natural or re-used flints. Dimensions: length: 91.34 mm; width: 50.82 mm; thickness: 13.20 mm; weight: 77.71g.

Dark grey flint with cortex lithic implement. Small irregular flake with cortex crudely trimmed from its dorsal side and with a prominent bulb on the ventral. Vert short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a hollow curving edge. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect also follows the longest straight edge and may represent a cutting edge, if this is not merely adventitious damage. The lack of patina may suggest the object was incorporated into a sealed context shortly after its deposition. Suggested date: Bronze Age, 2350-800 BC. Length: 16.5m…

A flint implement made from a pale greyish brown flint flake. The ventral side exhibits a low bulb of percussion but is otherwise flat, while the dorsal side shows sign of removals to form a slightly off centre ridge. The distal end of the implement is missing and it is unclear whether this was a scraper, blade or possibly an arrow head. The length is 22mm, the width is 14mm thickness 5mm and the weight 0.58g.
