  • Thumbnail image of SOM-9863A4

Record ID: SOM-9863A4
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two chert blades both with clear bulbs of percussion on the ventral face and scars from previous parallel removals from the same platform on the dorsal face. Both have very chipped edges obscuring any retouch. One is a orange chert, heavily repatinated, the other a mid brown. They weigh 12.48g in total. The blade like shape and repeat parallel removals may suggest a Mesolithic- Neolithic date.

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Distal end of a retouched flint flake or blade or probably Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date. The piece has snapped off a larger, but thin, flake or blade with the proximal end lost. The remaining scars on the dorsal face, and the percussion ripples on the ventral face suggets the piece was removed from a core worked in at least two directions at right angles to each other. The entire original edge has been retouched with short, parallel, semi-abrupt retouch becoming longer towards the ends of the remaining edge. It was possibly originaly part of a scraper but too little remains to be…

Object type: BURNT FLINT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a core which has part of the prepared platform and scars from repeated parallel removals of blades / flakes form it. The sides, distal end and ventral face are all broken with irregular breaks, made angular due to the burnt surface and with no bulb of percussion visible. The surface is white with angular crack marks. The piece is 35.9mm wide, 27.2mm long, 8.8mm thick and weighs 6.92 grams. The working style and associated material may suggest a Neolithic date.

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two thin blades or flakes that have areas of extensive retouch. Both appear incomplete and may be pieces that were abandoned part way though working. One is a large flake or blade with a snap at the distal end, part of the corner of which has been retouched on the ventral face with shallow, short scalar retouch. There is also long to invasive, scalar shallow retouch on both faces aross the proximal end and the original proximal end with the bulb of percussion has been removed. This invasive, shallow, scalar retouch continues down one edge on the dorsal face. The style of retouch is si…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a larger tertiary flake with retouch around two adjacent edges and the corner between them. The flake is missing the proximal end and this appears to be a snapped break with short scalar abrupt retouch across it from the ventral side becoming semi-abrupt around the corner and down the adjacent edge where there is also short scalar semi-abrupt retouch on the ventral face worked from the dorsal side. The distal end also appears broken with hinged removal from the distal end, given the thinness and size of the ripples, possible an accidental snap or chip. On the remaining sect…

Record ID: SOM-B00294
Object type: CORE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a larger core with damage on the ventral fance and proximal end. On the dorsal face scars from multiple previous parallel removals, small and large, suggest there was a prepared platform at the proximal end, now missing. The break on the ventral face has started in the centre and therefore appears to be accidental or frost damaged. There is an area of cortex at the distal end covering c. 20% of the surface. The entire piece is 58.7mm by 52.5mm by 19.1mm thick and weighs 49.33g. Given the other material found in proximity it is likely to be Neolithic.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A collection of fifteen pieces of probably Neolithic debitage (c. 4000-2350 BC) in the form of flakes, blades and fragments of blades. Five of the pieces are secondary flakes, retaining less than 10% of their cortex; the remaining flakes are tertiary retaining no cortex. They vary in shape and size but there are several neat blades and fragments of blades.There is evidence of parallel removals off prepared platforms even on the less blade like pieces. Apart from the snapped pieces they all have clear, if small, bubs of percussion. The flint ranges in clour from a dark grey with crea…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Knapped flint barbed and tanged arrowhead dating from the Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age (c. 2700 BC - c.1600 BC). The arrowhead is bifacially worked and sub-triangular in plan with slightly convex sides and a small chip at the point. There are two round ended notches in the base, flanking the central tang with a barb at either side. The tang is wider and longer than the barbs and has a square, probably broken end. One barb appears complete with working on both faces right down to the tip but is unusually small, the other is missing entirely from an angled break. The arrowhead has …

Three pieces of flint debitage. One is a secondary flake with c.50% of the dorsal face covered in cortex, mid brown flint with paler mottling, bulb of percussion on ventral face. Two are fragments of cores. One appears to have been struck off the base of a core at 90 degrees to previous working which appears to be of regular parallel blade removals, probably a core refereshment flake, dark brown flint with paler mottling, negative bulb scar on the removal face. The other appear to also be a fragment of a core with a bulb of percussion on the ventral face and evidence for repeated work…

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Secondary flint blade with cortext covering c. 30 of dorsal face in a band down one side. The blade is curved with a high arched dorsal face. The aris and flaking scars on the dorsal face compared to the bulb of percussion and ripples on the ventral face show it was struck at 90 degrees to previous removals off the core and may be a core refreshment or formation flake. There are multiple long scalar abrupt removals on the dorsal face at the distal end which may relate to the original working on the core or damage from use / post-deposition. There is a area of very short, semi-abrupt sc…

Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Retouched knapped flint blade, probably a knife or similar tool. The blade has the remains of a bulb of percussion at the proximal end of the ventral face which has been partly removed by retouch. The dorsal face is mostly covered by invasive shallow scalar retouch becoming semi-abrupt at the edges. This retouch has created a curved piece similar to the end of a sickle however there is some blunting retouch on the concave side, paticularly at the proximal end, suggestng this is not the cutting side. There is more recent damage, particularly around the convex side with the blade only re…

Large flint blade with evidence of retouch at both ends, probably a double ended scraper. The blade is thick and D-shaped in section with a flat ventral face and two ridges runing down the dorsal face. About 50% of the dorsal face of this secondary blade is still covered in cortex, which is thick, white with pink staining from soil that is partially still adhering. The bulb of percussion has been removed by retouch at the proximal end. On the dorsal face there is evidence of some small flakes removed from the ventral face, either rough shaping or to provide small flakes for use. B…
