Lithic artefacts from ARCHEOX excavations at Minchery Paddock - autumn 2012

The MP12 lithic assemblage indicates a human presence on the site, definitely between the Early Neolithic and Early Bronze Age (c. 4000-1500 BC), and potentially as early as the Mesolithic (c. 9000-4000 BC).  This fits with wider patterns of inhabitation evidenced by archaeological investigations on neighbouring sites. Beyond the traces of daily life evidenced by the majority of the assemblage, the finely flaked barbed and tanged arrowhead from trench 2 is potentially a non-functional high status artefact used in a ritual or funerary context.
