An incomplete flint borer of late Bronze Age - Early Iron Age date (c. 1000 BC - 1BC). Description: The borer is sub-triangular in plan with a low flaked dorsal face and rounded convex ventral face. Much of the flaking seems incidental and not finely executed. There is limited short scaled semi abrupt retouch creating the boring point opposite the flat edge with cortex still adhering. The flint is heavily mottled dark through to light grey with some blue white where it is recorticating. The long flat edge has light brown cortex still adhering to it. Measurements: 38.57mm long, 41.02m…

County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An irregular flint scraper likely dating from the late Neolithic to Bronze Age c.3300BC - 1000BC .

An irregular flint scraper likely dating to the Bronze Age or Iron age c.2400BC - 0BC . Description: The scraper was produced from a highly patinated older flake or tool and is now roughly trapezoidal in plan with curved edges and corners. The edges have short scaled abrupt to semi-abrupt retouch along them save for edge with the original striking platform. The tool is white and heavily patinated with some iron staining, where visible, like along the lines of retouch for example, the internal flint is a light grey brown.

A coarse flint scraper likely dating to the late Bronze Age or Iron age c.1000BC - 0BC . Description: The scraper was produced from a broken elongated ovoid primary flake (indicated by the substantial cortex remaining on the dorsal face) from a larger possibly naturally shattered flint (indicated by the multiple step and pitted like fractures on the part sof the edges). The flaking has left substantially conchoidal ripples on both sides of the flint and a substantial bulb of percussion on the ventral face, indicating hard hammer (stone on stone rather than antler, bone or padded stone…

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible flint denticulate of uncertain date, probably Late Bronze to early Iron age date, but a late mesolithic or early Paleothic date cannot be discounted. Description: The denticulate is an irregularly quadrilateral in plan with a wider lower face and slopping sides creating a 'pillow shape'. The tool is formed from a natural flake or accidental removal. It has blunted sides formed by invasive scaled abrupt retouch down one side and then irregular blunting on the other. The distal end has a limited denticulate retouch along it. The flint is very dark grey mottled to black. The f…

A piece of copper alloy casting waste likely a 'casting jet' from a two piece mould. Uncertain date possibly Bronze Age. Description: The object is circular in plan and sub-conical. Four circular-sectioned runners project from the body of the object at irregular points on the body. The upper surface is dished with a rough surface. The object has a mid-green patina. Dimensions: 27.42mm in length, 31.46mm long, 26.24mm wide, 56.55g Discussion: Casting jets are waste products which form at the top of a two-piece clay mould when the molten metal has filled the object-shaped void below. …

A complete copper alloy awl / leather working tool of uncertain date, possibly Bronze Age but conceivably Roman or medieval. Description: The awl is in very good condition with a dark grey-brown mildly patinated surface. The awl has a square cross section. Both ends taper to a sharp point. One point is slightly longer than the others and each of the four faces is slightly indented. There are some scratches on the rounded end. Some awls may have been hafted in to a wooden or bone handle however this example was probably used in the hand without hafting as both ends of the awl are usefu…

County: Kent
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete copper-alloy, flanged axehead, dating from the final phase of the Early to the earliest Middle Bronze Age (c. 2000 - 1500 BC). Possibly of Arreton type dated to Early Bronze Age III, of metalworking stage V, which corresponds to Needham's (1996) Period 3 circa 2000 - 1700 BC or possibly of a Central European type known as a 'Randleistenbeil' dating to a similar period of time (Huegelgraeber-Bronzezeit Reinecke A/B) Description: The axehead survives as the blade end and about a third of its original length. It has flanged parallel sides whcih runs along the back of the bl…

A possible flint waste flake reutilised as a serrate implement or denticulate of uncertain age, possibly Late Bronze Age to Iron Age in date? Description: The flake is a tertiary flake and ovoid in plan. It has had long thin removals on the ventral face. Along the left edge of the ventral face are a number of irregular short scaled abrupt to semi-abrupt removals. It is uncertain how intentioanl these removals are however. At the bottom right corner edge of the ventral side is some short scaled abrupt retouch. The entire flint is mottled beige and white with some iron stiaining and con…

A flint denticulate of uncertain date, probably Mesolithic or Late Bronze to early Iron age date. Description: The denticulate is irregularly shaped and formed from a tertiary flint flake, with a wider end opposite to the bulb of percussion. Short scaled abrupt retouch along the side edges the right one indents create denticulate serration. This means the tool has a scraping edge and a denticulate edge. The wide end also has some blunting formed from short angled scaled retouch. The flint is a dark grey-brown with some lighter areas and white speckling. Measurements: 39.29mm long, 44…

A flint denticulate of uncertain date, probably Mesolithic or Late Bronze to early Iron age date. Description: The denticulate is irregularly shaped and formed from a secondary flake, with a wider end, where the striking platform is located covered in some off white cortex. Short scaled abrupt retouch is along majority of the opposite end of the tool blunting the edge save for the 'denticulate' section halfway up on the right side formed from a set of steeply retouched notched with short scaled semi abrupt to abrupt flaking. The flint is a dark grey-brown with some lighter areas and w…

A crudely made flint scraper probably of Late Bronze age to Iron age date c. 1000BC to c.1BC. Description: The scraper is formed from a secondary flint flake, roughly triangular in plan and triangular in cross-section. The scraper has invasive retouch with a scraper edge formed from a scaled short semi-abrupt retouch along the left edge of the dorsal face. Part of the bottom left edge has short scaled abrupt retouch blunt the edge. The flake has been snapped across its width although with the blunting edge this appears to have happened before the retouch occured. Conchoidal rippling …

A fragment of worn cast Middle Bronze Age II to Late Bronze age, 1300BC - 800BC, Possibly Wilburton or Ewart Park type. Description: The fragment is irregular shaped but roughly rectangular in plan, lozenge in cross-section with a flat mid rib. It is heavily patinated and pitted typical of highly corroded copper-alloy. The fragment, due to its small size likely originates from the upper section of the sword. Measurements: 28.85mm wide, 24mm long, 6.66mm thick and 19.91g in weight.

A complete copper-alloy ingot of probable late bronze age date, c. 1150 - 600BC. Description:The ingot is a plano-convex discoid shape possibly suggesting the production in a bowl furnace rather than a mould. The upper is flat but with a large knop or swelling relating to the casting gate used in its production. The bottom is a rounded convex shape. The ingot is heavily pitted likely due to a mix of impurities in its matrix and the uneven natural material used to create the bowl in which it was cast.

A very large flint waste flake, utilised with the addition of a scraping edge, uncertain date, possibly late Bronze Age or Iron Age c.1000 - 1 BC. Description: The flake is a primary removal and very large and irregularly shaped but has roughly five sides in plan. The dorsal face has substantial cortex remaining and uneven poorly formed flaking. Along the right edge half way up there is some crushing retouch intended to blunt the edge. Just past this as the edge curves up to the point of the point of the flake there is short scaled semi-abrupt retouch which runs to the point of the fl…

A fragment of cast copper alloy socketed axe, dating to the Late Bronze Age - c. 1000 - 800 BC. Description: The fragment represents part of the socketed end of the axe and is unevenly shaped. Part of the rimmed collar for the socket remains. Just after the rim there is a side loop to help secure the axe to its handle. There is substantial casting line running from the rim and along the mid-line of the loop onto the body of the axe. It appears this casting feature has had very limited finishing. The fragment is dark green on the surfaces and a light green on the breaks which may sugge…
