Object type: CORE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two flint core chunks, both of probable later Bronze Age date, c. 1600-800 BC. The first is a tertiary flake, sub-trapezoidal in plan and triangular in cross section, and probably extensively damaged. It is of an opaque black-brown flint. The dorsal face is faceted, the right featuring no conchoidal ripples and possibly being natural, and with the right edge being damaged through abrasion. The left facet features two obliquely angled, sub-parallel negative removal scars, with the proximal end of the left edge also damaged. The proximal end is battered, resulting in a confused array of…

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A chert core of probable Bronze Age date, c. AD 1600-800. A sub-tetrahedron shaped fragment of brown chert, with large and distinct areas of quartz-like inclusions and areas of a smooth, beige cortex remaining on one face. A series of sub-parallel removals have been struck from this face, through the cortex, leaving overhanging promonotories or lips at he interstice of each removal, suggesting a lack of platform preparation. Dimensions: length 58.4mm; width 55.3mm; thickness 55.8mm; weight 130.50g. Although sub-parallel removals may suggest an earlier date, their irregular size and l…

A flint core of probable Bronze Age date, c. AD 1600-800. A sub-conical fragment of chert-like grey flint mottled with regular inclusions, and with a small area of thin, compact, beige-pink cortex below the striking platform. The core has two largely unworked facets, with a series of irregularly sized sub-parallel removals from the the third. A promonotory projects from between each removal, suggesting a lack of platform preparation. Dimensions: length 40.8mm; width 42.6mm; thickness 38.9mm; weight 40.33g. Although sub-parallel removals may suggest an earlier date, their irregular si…

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A retouched tertiary flake of mottled grey flint, probably dating to the later Bronze Age, c. 1600-800 BC. The flake is sub-triangular in plan, missing its striking platform, but with the suggestion of a large bulb of percussion. Three irregular, flake-like removal scars survive on the dorsal face, all struck from roughly the same direction and with one removal being significantly hinged. At the left edge of the proximal end of the ventral face there is short, low angle, stepped retouch, with short, semi-abrupt, scalar retouch at the right edge of the distal end of the same face. The d…

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
33 pieces of flint debitage and 1 flake of chert debitage of probable later Bronze Age date, c. 1600-800 BC. The group appears to represent a variety of flint sources, including some pebble flint fragments and comprises of 1 chert (7.43g) and 1 flint (31.25g) primary flake, 19 secondary flakes (350.49g) and 13 tertiary flakes (89.72g). In general the knapping is very crude, producing large, crude flakes with removals struck from several directions and exhibiting characteristics suggestive of hard-hammer percussion, suggesting a date range in the later Prehistoric period. Part of a larg…

County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint burin of probable later bronze age date, c. 1600-800 BC. A triangular tertiary flake of grey-brown flint, sub-trapezoidal in cross section and curving slightly ventrally into the distal end. A number of subparallel removal scars are present on the dorsal face, with one struck from a parallel platform to the others and overall fake removal. At the proximal end a striking platform and bulb of percussion survive with bulbar scar. Dimensions: length 36.4mm; width 16.3mm; thickness 6.6mm; weight 4.42g. Given its form, the flake would have been well suited as an engraving tool. By …

A struck flint flake of probable Prehistoric date, potentially utilised as an expediency tool. An irregularly shaped tertiary flake of opaque black/grey flint. A striking platform survives at the proximal end with a diffuse bulb of percussion, but no 'lip' below the point of percussion. The distal end is lost to a natural break, but with probable use related wear on this edge. A number of irregular hinged removals on both the dorsal and ventral face appear more likely to be associated with later damage.

County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Late Bronze Age socketed axehead, probably dating to c. 1150-750 BC. The fragment is extremely abraded, leaving no surface detail and at one point wearing completely through the wall, leaving an irregular perforation. The socket mouth and cutting edge have both been lost to wear, leaving the axe with a narrow sub-rectangular in plan, with a rounded blade-end and the wall of the socket lost entirely on one face. In profile the axehead tapers towards the cutting edge. the socket is sub-rectangular in cross-section and survives to a depth of c. 54.7mm. Dimensions: length 72…

Object type: GRINDSTONE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A quartzite beach cobble utilised as a grindstone, of probable Prehistoric date. The cobble is most likely from the Salcombe pebble beds, deriving ultimately from the permian river systems of Normandy. The cobble has an oval plan and cross section, but is truncated, forming a well-worn oval facet at one end, exhibiting some battering damage as well as one edge being slightly bevelled through use. It is otherwise unmodified with the exeption of further, far less pronounced, wear-related facets to either side of the cobble, as well as shallow depressions at the centre of each face. All s…

An incomplete retouched Prehistoric flint flake, tentatively dated to the Neolothic-Bronze Age (see also: DEV-ED0824 and DEV-66439A, part of the same scatter), c. 3000-800 BC. Secondary flake; probably incomplete, with the left mesal edge lost to a natural break. Of a blue-grey pebble flint with cortex surviving on the proximal end, through which it was presumably struck, although the bulb of percussion has not survived; irregular damage to the proximal end truncated by the natural break probably relates to the point of percussion. Two shallow facets from previous removals on dorsal …

Three worked flint flakes of Prehistoric debitage, all secondary flakes of probable pebble flint, with one exhibiting evidence of retouch. The dating of such a small assemblage must remain highly tentative, however, the general crudeness of the knapping, as well as comparison to two cores found as part of the saem scatter (DEV-ED0824) may suggest a Neolithic to Bronze Age date, c. 3000-800 BC. DEV-667E4A is also part of this same scatter. 1. Secondary flake; brown flint mottled with plaer/white inclusions. c. 40% of distal end covered in cortex. 2 previous sub-parallel removals, both …

Two flint cores, one incomplete, of probable Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date, c. 3000-800 BC. DEV-667E4A and DEV-66439A are part of the same scatter. 1. A secondary core of a glassy black flint with little to no visible inclusions. A large amount of cortex remains on one face, c. 30% of the overall surface. The core has a single striking platform from which a number of irregularly sized but broadly sub-parallel flakes have been struck. The core has then been rotated to 7 o'clock and a removal scar used as the platform for a subsequent removal. The core has a broadly sub-rectan…
