This handaxe (Hanson_0938_002) was recovered from Licence Area 240 of the North Sea by Aaron Chidgey who discovered it in aggergates at Dagenham Wharf. It was examined by our flint specialist Phil Harding. It is a small, unpatinated and unstained cordiform/discoidal handaxe that has a rolled condition, with flake aretes dulled by fine-grained, abrasive fluvial sediment. It was made by bifacial flaking of dark flint with hard hammer percussion to produce the intended implement. Length 66 mm, width 60 mm, thickness 18 mm and weight 81 g.
This find was part of a larger assemblage of 30 flint artefacts and 111 fragments of animal bones that were all reported through the Marine Aggregate Industry Protocol for the Reporting of Finds of Archaeological Interest.
