Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint scraper of probable later prehistoric date, c. 3,300-800 BC. Worked from a primary flake of grey-brown flint, with cortex covering all of those areas not exhibiting retouch. Crude removals struck from the proximal end have thinned the flake, removing the bulb of percussion. Short, semi-abrupt, scalar retouch is exhibited around the perimeter of the dorsal face, with the exception of the proximal end. Dimensions: length 41.7mm; width 45.2mm; thickness 12.5mm; weight 30.26g. It is impossible to date a single undiagnostic flint with confidence, however the crude knapping, la…

A Flake of Prehistoric flint debitage, probably of later prehistoric date, c. 3,300-800 BC. A tertiary flake of mottled beige-brown flint exhibiting a pronounced, hinged bulb on percussion with bubar scar. The dorsal face exhibits a number of negative removal scars, struck from multiple platforms and with a number being hinged. The flake likewise has a hinged terminal at the distal end. There is extensive damage to the right edge of the dorsal face. The flake exhibits no retouch, although chattering along the dorsal edge of the striking platform may suggest the use of platform preparat…

Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Middle Bronze Age copper alloy small palstave axehead or chisel, probably dating to c. 1500-1100 BC. The palstave is 71.6mm long, with the butt end being rectangular in plan and of largely consistant width, 11.0mm at the stop ridge, the blade exands in width from the stop ridge reaching 18.0mm at the rounded cutting edge, with no wing tips. In profile the blade is of largely consistant thickness, 3.6mm at the midpoint, although tapering to a point at the cutting edge. The palstave flares outwards into the stop ridge, 12.0mm thick, before tapering into the butt, with sub-triangular fl…

County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Late Bronze Age copper alloy socketed axehead, probably of South Wakes type and dating to the Ewart Park metal working phase, c. 950-750BC. The axehead is largely complete, but with extensive damage to the mouth of the socket. The axehead is sub-rectangular in plan and tapers in profile towarss the cutting edge. A pronounced casting seam runs down either lateral face, creating a shallow sub-hexagonal cross section, The vestigial remains of a probable loop survive on the less complete lateral face. The less abraded broad face is decorated with a series of three slightly co…

County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Late Bronze Age copper alloy tanged chisel, probably dating to c. 1150-800 BC. The chisel survives complete, although the tang has been damaged, and is now bent at 45 degrees to the plane. The tang is rectangular in cross section, tapering to a point in profile and with a sub-rectangular end in plan, with the remains of casting seems running down either lateral face, particularly prominent at the interstice with the collar. The latter is elaborated, and oval in cross section, with concave sides and an expanded upper edge. The blade projects from below the less pronounced lower edge…

A Retouched flint flake of uncertain probable prehistoric date, on the balance of probability possibly Late Neolithic to Bronze Age, c. 3300-800 BC. A secondary flake of mottled pale grey flint with a small area of cortex surviving on the left edge of the dorsal face, covering c. 10%. At the proximal end the strking platform has been worked away by semi-abrupt, irregular and relatively long retouch, struck from the ventral face. The proximal half of the left edge of the dorsal face features further, long, abrupt, scalar retouch, with one hinged removal. The bulb of percussion is relati…

An incomplete Bronze Age copper alloy Palstave, probably dating to c. 1,500-1,300 BC. The Palstave comprises of the blade only, the butt-end, including the entirety of the septum and flanges being lost to an old break at the stop ridge. The vestigial remains of loop are present, with a broken and abraded projection from one lateral face below the stop ridge. Each broad face features corroded rident or shield shaped decoration, cast in low relief below the stop ridge. In plan the blade flares widely into a crescentic cutting edge, but with no evidence for flanged blade tips, whilst in p…

Two flakes of flint debitage, probably dating to the Neolithic to Early Bronze age, c. 4000-1,600BC, by association with other material found as part of the same assemblage. Both flakes are tertiary, representing two separate types of flint. The striking platform and bulb of percussion are retained on a single flake, where it is relatively pronounced and scarred. On the same flake, the negative removal scars on the dorsal face are irrgular in size and struck from a platform at roughly 45 degrees to the surviving platform. The second flake terminates in a hinge fracture, with only a sin…

An Early Bronze Age flint barbed and tanged arrowhead, probably dating to c. 2,400-2,100BC. Bifacially worked teritiary flake of mottled grey-brown flint, worked into a triangular point with sub-rectangular tang, the arrowhead features no barbs. The retouch is exhibited around the perimeter of the arrowhead, sub-parallel and low angle generally, although becoming semi-abrupt towards the point of the arrowhead on the dorsal face. On the ventral face this retouch is short, whilst its extent on the dorsal face is uncertain, with it obscured by a large removal at the tanged end, which almo…

A Flint scraper of probable Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date, c. 3,300-1,600BC, exhibiting retouch resembling a plano-convex knife. A secondary flake of mottled grey-brown flint, with a small area of cortex surviving at one end (c. <5%), the proximal end has been worked away, but it is likely that the length of the surviving tool is perpendicular to the length of the original flake. The flint is bifacially worked, broadly plano-convex in cross-section, and exhibiting invasive retouch, abrupt and sub-parallel on the left side and semi-abrupt and sub-parallel/scalar on the righ…

Three retouched flint flakes of probable Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date, c. 3,300-1,600BC. 1. A tertiary flake of opaque, slightly mottled, grey-brown flint, with the proximal end worked away, but with relatively diffuse conchoidal ripples present on the ventral face. Two prominent negative removal scars are present on the dorsal face, one narrow and blade-like, the other much broader, probably struck from two separate platforms, one at c. 30 degrees to the other. Short, scalar, low angle retouch is exhibited along the right edge of the dorsal face and left edge of the ventra…

A single flake of flint debitage, of probable prehistoric date. A tertiary flake of translucent brown flint with bands of grey-beige inclusions. A relatively large bulb of percussion survives at the proximal end, with bulbar scar. Abrasion to the dorsal edge of the striking platform would suggest the use of platform preparation. The sub-parallel, negative removal scars on the dorsal face appear to have been struck from th same platform as the overall removal. There is a small patch of white patination at the distal point, suggesting possible reuse of older material. There is no retouch…

Three flint scrapers of probable Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date, probably dating to c. 3,300-1,600BC. 1. Tertiary flake of mottled pale grey flint, missing the proximal end and bulb of percussion to a natural break, with relatively large, but diffuse conchoidal ripples on the reverse. Abrupt, long, sub-parallel retouch along the distal and left edges of the dorsal face, obscuring the negative removal scars, but which appear to be struck from a different platform to the overall removal.

A flint thumb-nail scraper of probable Early bronze age date, c. 2400-1600 BC. A tertiary flake of dark brown flint, mottled with grey inlusions. Sub-rectangular in plan, with a relativey pronounced bulb of percussion on the ventral face, but with the striking platform worked away at the proximal end.

A flint scraper of probable Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date, c. 3000-1600 BC. An incomplete tertiary flake of mottled grey flint, missing the proximal end and right edge of the dorsal face to natural breaks.
