A collection of three worked flints from a late Neolithic and Bronze Age landscape, dated to c.2400 to 1500BC. The flints were found whilst walking in an area where there is a cluster of bowl barrows and a nearby hill fort. 1. A thin blade of pale grey opaque flint, oblong in shape with a triangular cross section. The dorsal surface has two longitudinal arrises formed where three parallel flakes have been removed. the ventral surface is slightly concave. There is an abrubt break at the proximal end which appears to have removed the bulb of percussion. Half the length of the top edge h…

Two Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age fragments of tertiary flint implements. The fragments are trapezoidal in shape and are worked bifacially. One fragment is of translucent pale grey flint with a covering, stepped and low angle retouch on one side and semi-abrupt on the other; it has slightly convex faces and is transversally broken at the proximal end. The second fragment is of translucent pale brown flint with a covering, sub-parallel semi-abrupt retouch all along, except for the proximal end wheer there is a transverse break; it has considerably convex faces giving a pointed oval…

Partially worked flake of grey flint, likely dating to the late Neolithic/early Bronze Age, c. 3000 - 1500 BC. There is retouch along the upper left edge when viewed from the ventral face which is scaled and thins the flake edge slightly. The right edge of the ventral face also shows evidence of retouch, along the bottom edge forming a shallow crescent. The upper right edge of the ventral face is straight and diagonal. When viewed from the dorsal face this edge is backed almost all along its length, with only a small portion in the middle showing no evidence of retouch. The retouch a…

Primary flake which has been utilised as a scraper or other lithic hand-held tool. The flake's dorsal surface is covered almost entirely by cortex, suggesting it was struck as a primary flake without any prior removals on the dorsal surface. It is likely that the flake was utilised opportunistically, as there is little in terms of retouch. Where retouch is seen, primarily on the mid right edge when viewed from the dorsal face, it takes the form of parallel removals forming a steep 'backed' edge. This was likely done to blunt this portion of the edge. The retouch continues, though to a…

Possible debitage flake with evidence of some edge flaking. Likely early Bronze Age in date, c. 2500 - 1500 BC. The ventral face is uneven and mottled, though the right edge does show evidence of retouch in a parallel scaled fashion at the section nearest the butt. The retouch seems to continue along the right side for the length of the flak, though is not as clearly defined toward the tip. The dorsal face shows evidence of removals toward the butt and along the right side of the arris. These are not as regular as the small retouch on the ventral face. It is likely that the sma…

A patinated flint implement, possibly a reworked natural flake or earlier debitage. Dr Kevin Leahy says: "the utilisation of natural flint was a practice characteristic of the Later Bronze Age and Iron Age". The surface shows a recorticated patina with what may be iron staining. Rough scaled retouching along the edge seems to cut this recortication, suggesting re-use. There is what may be a burin at the tip of the implement. Length 51.9 mm, width 16.7 mm, thickness 8.8 mm. Weight 8.4 g

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…

Late Bronze Age to early Iron Age off white heat effected flint or chert notched end scraper. There is evidence of light retouch to the mesal edges, possibly for use as side scrapers, & heavy modification to the distal end. The The distal modification was probably to make the tool more comfortable & easier to use and it may also have been to allow it to be mounted. Most likely to date to the late Bronze Age but manufacture in the early Iron Age cannot be dismissed due to the crude style of knapping. Dates to between c1000 and c400 BC. The length is 58mm, the width is 41mm and…

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…

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…
