Record ID: BERK-E92BCD
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An unfinished flint scraper, probably dating from the Mesolithic to Neolithic period. The scraper is made on tertiary flake, and has little soft-hammer retouch on the dorsal distal end and lateral; it has been suggested that this is a tool in production, as the retouch is not finished. It is also possible that the flake was discarded or rejected during manufacture. The colour of the flint varies from a light to mottled grey-blue. These objects are part of a larger collection from what appears to be a multiphase site.

Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire

A collection of three end-scrapers, dating to the Mesolithic period. Two of the scrapers are complete while a third is truncated. All three are made on secondary flakes and all have steep soft hammer retouching at the dorsal distal end. The colour of the flint varies from mottled blue-grey to brown. This style of scraper is usually associated with the Mesolithic period, dating from c. 10,000 - 4000 BC. These objects are part of a larger collection from what appears to be a multiphase site.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Oxfordshire

A Mesolithic flint scraper made of a tertiary flake of a mid-brown flint. The scraper has retouch around both dorsal laterals and nose. The ventral surface is un-worked but retains the bulb of percussion. Part of the platform is also retained. Due to it's size this type of artefact is known as a thumbnail scraper and is typologically characteristic of the Mesolithic to early Neolithic period, c.6500-2500 BC.

Record ID: BERK-801E62
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…

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…
