Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Doncaster
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint rounded scraper of probable Neolithic date (4000 BC - 2200 BC). It is formed on a piece of opaque mottledorange brown and dark grey glossy flint. It is sub-circular in plan and sub-triangular in cross ection, with a convex ventral face and steeply angled dorsal face. It was probably struck with a soft hammer and has tertiary working. There is invasive, sub-parallel semi-abrupt retouch on the distal end and sides of the dorsal face. The scraper is 31mm long, 29mm wide and 13mm thick. 12.5g.

A flint retouched flake of probable Neolithic date, 4000 BC - 2200 BC. It is formed on a tertiary flake of light grey flint. It is D shaped in plan and sub-triangular in cross section. The curved left side is sporadically retouched with scaled, abrupt, short retouch. The dorsal face has removal scars with the striking platform at the right side. This could indicate the flake was possibly initially struck as a core rejuvenation flake. It is 33.4mm long, 22.6mm wide and 7.9mm thick. 4.96g.

A flint scraper probably dating from the Neolithic, about 4000 BC - 2200 BC. It is formed on a secondary flake of very dark coloured flint, with cortex on most of the dorsal face and the left side. It is oval in plan and pointed oval in cross-section. There is short, semi-abrupt, scaled retouch along the whole right edge. The scraper is 70.4mm long, 35.8mm wide and 10.3mm thick. 25.9g. Superficially the artefact looks like a knife, but the retouch is not at a low angle, so it must be a scraper.

A flint probable rounded scraper dating from the Neolithic period, about 4000 BC - 2200 BC, as identified by Jason Dodds. It is formed on a primary flake of dark grey flint with yellow inclusions which is opaque and has a patina starting to form. It is oval in plan and cross-section. There are semi-abrupt, short, sub-parallel removals round most of the edge, from both faces, though these are partially obscured by later damage caused by being rolled on the beach.

A flint knife of Neolithic date, 4000 BC - 2200 BC. It is formed on a secondary flake of dark grey flint with cortex on the dorsal face, and is sub-triangular in plan and pointed oval in cross-section. Both long edges have invasive, low angle sub-parallel retouch, changing to similar but semi-abrupt retouch on the proximal end of the right side. The left side of the proximal end has a long, large removal from the proximal end creating a long notch. Small, short, abrupt, parallel retouch on the edge left by this removal suggests that it was intentional. The knife is 43mm long, 24.6mm w…

Part of a flint scraper of Neolithic to early Bronze Age date, about 4000 BC - 1000 BC. The flint has been burnt and is crazed and discoloured to a grey white. It is an incomplete flake, with the proximal end and bulb of percussion missing. It is shaped like half a semi-circle, the short edge being broken. The other straight edge is a smooth removal scar, and the curved edge is retouched with large, semi-abrupt, short, scaled removals forming a scraping edge. Both faces are flat. The scraper is 25mm long, 16.3mm wide and 5.9mm thick. 2.89g.
