Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Bath and North East Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
~~Neolithic scraper on a secondary flake. This has an off-centre arise on the dorsal, this side is also covered with about 60% cortex and a large bulb of percussion on the ventral. The forward edge has abrupt, direct retouch that creates a curved leading edge. There is also working at the base of the flint that consists of inverse, semi-abrupt retouch on the lower portion of the right sides which crates a straight working edge. This is a light grey fling with darker patches is covered in a creamy patina that has light grey speckles.

Object type: CORE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
~Flake core that has multiple flaking scars on both the ventral and dorsal side that have been taken from a number of directions, which has resulted in the artefact developing an oval cross section. There are traces of cortext covering about 40% of the ventral side, flaking has removed the cortext from the remaining area of the ventral and the whole of the dorsal, exposing a grey flint with frequent creamy patches. The extremities of the core show signs of post-depositional damage.

~~Flint scraper on a flake, this has a large negative bulb of percussion on the dorsal and a very large bulb of percussion with deep ripples on the ventral, both of which would have been created by a hard hammer. The front has been retouch to create a curved working edge that has direct, scaled retouch that starts as semi-abrupt on the right side and increases in angle to abrupt on the left side. This is a mid brown flint with darker patches and one large grey patch. This artefacts dates to the Neolithic.
