Record ID: SOM-529957
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint end-and-side scraper of light/mid-grey flint of Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date (c. 2500 - 1500 BC). It has been made on a primary flake, described as such since the dorsal face is covered in cortex with the exception of invasive areas of working along the sides. At the proximal end is a striking platform, with a bulbar scar, partially removed by a later flake. On the ventral face the bulb is shallow, as are the ripples, and the surface is slightly rough towards the distal end. The flake has a shallow S-shaped profile. There is short, scaled, (semi-)abrupt retouch to b…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint end scraper of light/dark-grey flint of Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date (c. 2500 - 1500 BC). Made on a small tertiary flake with no cortex surviving. At the proximal end is a small striking platform, with a significant bulbar scar. On the ventral face the bulb is shallow, as are the ripples. The flake has an S-shaped profile. The dorsal face is notably smooth; this may have been due to natural removals. There is invasive flaking on a diagonal protrusion at the proximal end of the ventral face. It would appear, therefore, unusually, that the proximal end is here being u…

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint end scraper of dark-grey flint of Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date (c. 2500 - 1500 BC). Made on a secondary flake with cortex covering most of the dorsal face, with the exception of the proximal end. At the proximal end is a small striking platform, with a significant bulbar scar. On the ventral face the bulb is shallow, as are the ripples. As implied, the dorsal face has very few removals: these cluster around the proximal end and are quite abrupt, working around a natural flaw. It would appear, therefore, unusually, that the proximal end is here being used as a scrape…

Record ID: SOM-F008E5
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A flint horseshoe-shaped scraper of mid/dark-grey flint of Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date (c. 2500 - 1500 BC). Made on a tertiary flake with no surviving cortex. At the proximal end is a small striking platform, partially removed by old damage. On the ventral face the bulb is shallow, and the ripples travel diagonally. The dorsal face has two main scars creating steep sides either side of a flat median ridge. Around half of the distal edge has been retouched, quite crudely and abruptly, creating a curved working edge, with finer retouch above. The surface of the scraper has s…

Record ID: SOM-FE0FA1
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A crude side scraper formed from a tertiary debitage flint flake of Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date. The scraper is formed from a leaf-shaped flake with a notched void at the distal end: this is edged with cortex on the dorsal face and is probably a natural void. The ventral face shows conchoidal ripples and the bulb of percussion, alongside a small bulbar scar. The dorsal face has three main longitudinal removals in the same plane as the ventral, the central one being far wider. A long edge, the lefthand edge on the dorsal face, has been retouched creating a basic cutting/scr…

Record ID: SOM-772A05
Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A retouched tertiary flake probably Neolithic in date. It is broadly of elongated trapezoidal form with a 'butt' of straight sides, the side having tapered gradually from the wide end. The retouch varies on the dorsal face and is abrupt to one side, and more gradual at the other and the wide end. The shape of the flake is reminiscent of transverse arrowheads of the tranchet type but the cutting edge seems too thick for this purpose, though it may have been truncated. The function of this flake therefore cannot be given with precision.

Record ID: SOM-5145C1
Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Knapped tertiary flint flake, undiagnostic in date and therefore dated from the Mesolithic to the Bronze Age. It is incomplete as there is some recent damage to its edges. There is a prominent bulb on the ventral face with an adjacent scar. The dorsal face features numerous longitudinal removals generally from the proximal end. The flint is grey, stained brown. It measures 34.9mm long by 28.2mm wide and 6.8mm thick; it weighs 6.36 grams.
