  • The Field That Keeps Giving.

    More finds this weekend from the same field I looked at last week:

    This time the farmer had helpfully de-foliated the potatoe crop making spotting flint artifacts much easier. All the finds are of Neolithic age ~5000 BP and as usual will be reported to the UK Portable Antiquities Scheme. Pictures of the three best finds


    Quite pleased with this long blade. I'd like to think the maker deliberately picked the strippey flint to make a nice looking blade?



    This grey flint blade looks almost scalpel like. I can only assume it was used for butchery of small animals?



    Finaly a typical round ended scraper in pale flint with nice retouch. These seem to be a common tool type in this area.

      All three are fantastic finds. That is a gorgeous lithic on the first one and the blade style in the second is spectacular.
