Flint axehead. A long narrow edge polished flint axe of lozenge section. The object is entirely covered by low angled scalar retouch on both sides, working which typically detached large flakes and left an irregular aris on either side. The wider end was then polished on both sides, and retains a slightly curved cutting edge of length 44.3mm. The narrower end was also trimmed as several smaller and more delicate flake removal scars appear here, producing an oval terminal of width 25.8mm; viewed in profile, the axehead is stepped, becoming c.8mm thicker 39mm from its narrower end. The object is now densely patinated overall, which may suggest it endured a period of exposure after its deposition. The patina conceals the character of the flint selected to make this tool. Suggested date: Late Neolithic, 2700-2350 BC.
