Record ID: BERK-7D5827
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A collection of six (6) scrapers recovered during fieldwalking. Each scraper is described individually below while the origin for all of the raw flint material is suggested to be the chalk downlands, probably towards the Ridgeway. 1. A semi-circular scraper made on a secondary flake with retouch confined to the distal side only. The flint has some white patina and covers a blue-grey core and dates to the Neolithic 3500-2100 BC. 2. An end and side scraper made on a secondary flake that retains c.40% cortex with retouch confined to the distal side. The flint has a thick bluish-white pat…

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Sixteen (16) fragments of debitage and/or waste flakes with a combined weight of 17gms. Most have a whitish or bluish-white patina covering a grey core, suggesting a chalk downland source, possible towards the Ridgeway. These were found in association with many other lithics (see links below). These are suggested to date from the late Mesolithic through the Neolithic era.

A collection of thirteen (13) core preparation fragments, mostly primary removals. All are probably Mesolithic - Neolithic in date and have a combined weight of 96.4gms. These lithics were found in association with other artefacts of a similar date. As with the majority of the assemblage, the grey-blue core and white cortex suggests a chalk downland origin as the flint source.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A tabular scraper with retouch only evident on the distal surface. The flint orange-brown in colour and retains cortex on the distal surface, although there is no patina. This is an unusual flint as there is a ?natural hole through the centre of the scraper which appears to pre-date the retouching – this hole has re-cortified, and with the tabular retouching the artefact at first looks like a spindle whorl. It is unknown whether the presence of the hole was ever utilised for hanging or securing the scraper by rope or string. The scraper is 35.53mm in diameter and 10.58mm thick and we…

Record ID: BERK-5E6797
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A total of eight (8) primary flakes removed during core preperation. Two display hinge fractures, and all have bulbs of percussion. No additional working or retouch is evident. The combined weight of these primary flakes is 52.1gms. These fragments would normally be difficult to date should they have been found in isolation, but the associated lithic implements suggest that they date from the late Mesolithic to the Neolithic periods (6500 - 2100 BC). As with the majority of the assemblage, the grey-blue core and white cortex suggests a chalk downland origin as the flint source.

Record ID: BERK-45BC40
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A large snub-nosed borer made from a flint with a dark grey core and dark brownish orange outer. No cortex remains. The bulb has been removed, while retouch is evident around all edges. There are also removals on the 'nose' end of the borer tip. This tool may have been hafted into a wooden or bone handle and used either by hand or with a bow-drill. This object is hard to date, but is probably Mesolithic to Neolithic in date. The tool measures 38.47mm long and weighs 9.2gms. The width of the tool is 25.53mm at the shoulders, reduced to 9.51mm at the bore tip.

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible 'thumbnail' type scraper, made from a pebble rather than from a flint nodule core. There is the suggestion of some limited retouch on the tip on both sides. The patina on this object is even all over and a possible Mesolithic date is suggested. The scraper measures 33.19mm long, 27.47mm wide and its thickness ranges from 5.90mm to 13.25mm. It weighs 11.5gms.

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A large end and side scraper made on a secondary flake, possibly showing some recortication. The flint is grey in colour with patches of white, suggesting a local (chalk downland) source. The retouch is restricted mostly to the dorsal surface, while a small area at the distal end has suffered recent damage. The size of this tool suggests it may have been hafted and may date from the Mesolithic (8,300BC) to early Neolithic (c.3,500BC) periods. The scraper measures 67.97mm long, 46.90mm wide and is 10.23mm thick. It weighs 42.2gms.

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A late Mesolithic / late Neolithic horseshoe-type scraper made on a secondary flake. The retouch is restricted to the dorsal surface and the flint is a blue-grey in colour, suggesting a chalk-downland / clay-with-flints source. Modern plough damage has removed part of the nose of the scraper. This scraper may date more closely to the late Mesolithic / early Neolithic period, and measures 48.05mm long, 26.99mm wide and 9.80mm thick. It weighs 14.4gms.

A horseshoe or thumbnail scraper made on a secondary flake. The flint is a brown-grey colur and some white patina remains on the dorsal surface.
