Record ID: KENT-DB5058
Object type: CORE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An uncertain bifacial worked uncertain lithic object, possibly a levallois core of uncertain date. Description: The object is roughly pear shaped, with a wider wide end. One side has an area of fine invasive scaled retouch reminiscent of levallois shaping but without any substantial method to it. This retouch is interrupted by a patch of cortex or fault. the other side has some flake insavive flake removals on the right side with a large removal again reminscant of levallois shaping leaving a large dish shape. The left side of this latter facing is heaving crushed indicating substanti…

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An irregularly shaped probable flint blade of Neolithic to Bronze Age date. Description: The object is irregularly shaped wiht a long thin blade and a wider square butt. It is formed from a secondary flake with some cortex still remaing at the butt end. The blade is formed from short abrupt retouch which produces shoulders with the butt. the back of the blade is formed by similar crushed short scaled abrupt retouch. All the object's rippling is produced from the hard hammer technique shwo by prominant conchoidal rippling and the ventral face's bulb of percussion. Measurements: 36.94m…

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two flakes of flint debitage of possible Late Mesolithic to Early Neolithic date, c. 8000-3000 BC. Both flakes are tertiary and incomplete, missing the distal ends to unpatinated, natural breaks. The two flakes are of different flints, one pale yellow-brown, the other far darker. Both are heavily patinated with traces of iron staining. Flake 1 (6.27g, of darker flint) exhibits a relatively large bulb of percussion, with a series of parallel removals from the dorsal face, obscured by a hinged removal at the proximal end. Flake 2 (4.95g) has a diffuse bulb of percussion, although with a …

County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint core of possible Late Mesolithic to Early Neolithic date, c. 8000-3000 BC. The core is sub-conical, with a small area of sandy cortex retained near the point, and of a patinated grey flint with one off-white, heavily patinated facet. From one section of the core have been removed a series of narrow parallel flakes, but with more irregular flakes removed to either side, although these areas are also damaged. Dimensions: Height 32.3mm; length 28.3mm; width 38.0mm; weight 39.05g. Found as part of a larger assemblage which is predominently later in character (see: DEV-D8A691, DEV…

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey-buff flint, honey-coloured under transmitted light, borer. A sub-triangular flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb at one corner of an otherwise flat ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curving convex edge; the opposite edge appears to have received similar short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect, defining a point where the two edges meet.

Flint with cortex strip [one only]; debitage. Four flakes with broad flakes struck from their dorsal sides by hard hammer strike, and with a bulb on the ventral surface of the largest, Two more have concave ventral surfaces, while the dorsal and ventral sides are indistinguishable on the last and longest flake.

Pale grey flint with cortex spots, debitage. Eight small chips of struck flint: five with a bulb on the ventral surface of which at least three also bear scars from the removal of small flakes from their dorsal sides. The remaining three chips also bear flake removal scars; in all cases from hard hammer strike. Patches of misty patina suggest they were subsequently exposed to a calcareous environment.

Grey flint with cortex spots; scraper. A flake of wavy profile with broad and narrow flakes struck from its dorsal side by hard hammer strike, and with a prominent bulb on the ventral surface. Patches of dense creamy patina have developed over the struck surfaces, indicating a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. This has been trimmed along one side of the flake by short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect. The Neolithic period could accommodate both episodes.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A retouched flint blade dating to the period 4000-3501 BC. The impliment is lenticular in shape but is missing a point. The flint is covered with retouching. The implement exhibits sub-parallel, low angle retouch on both faces along with some scaled retouch along both mesal edges. On the ventral surface, the bulb of percussion is missing and some concoidal rings are just visible. The narrow end of the blade may have broken or it may have been worn into a straight, smooth curve from the ventral to distal surfaces. The flint is a light greyish beige colour and is translucent at one end …

Brown flint with cortex strip, scraper. A small thick chunk with a broad flake struck from its dorsal surface and with a concave ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed [probably] from the ventral aspect trims one end. The opposite edge was formed by a positive hinged fracture, and this rounded surface may have enabled pressure to be brought to bear on the working edge. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC.

Flint debitage. A thin flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb on its ventral surface. Dense creamy patina over all struck surfaces suggests the object has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment after its deposition.

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey-green stone polished axehead fragment. A thin sliver chipped - probably by plough-strike - from a polished stone axe, probably of Langdale Group 6. A small patch of the polished surface remains on one side along with more extensive fracture surfaces; it has a curved edge, though whether this points to an origin from close to the cutting edge remains uncertain. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 35.6mm, Width: 27.6mm, Thickness: 4.9mm, Weight: 6.29gms.

County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Neolithic (4000 - 2100 BC) polished flint axehead wih damage to the butt end and missing the cutting edge, probably from around half the original length of the axehead. The axehead is pointed-oval in cross-section and has been bifacially worked with polishing apparent on both faces and sides. Flakes appears to have been removed both on top of and beneath the polishing. Iron staining is apparent on the edges of flake removals. The sides of the axehead are faceted and flat, surviving to a height of c.5-6mm. The flint is opaque and light grey/ cream in colour. The axehead is…
