Record ID: SOM-EB8975
Object type: THUMB NAIL SCRAPER
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small flint thumb nail scraper made from a secondary flake, probably dating from the Neolithic to early Bronze Age. The scraper has a small butt, with diffuse bulb and very discreet ripples, suggesting that a small, soft hammer was used. The ventral face is concave. The dorsal face has high-gloss, whitish pebble cortex remaining on the left-hand side. In the centre are two long, curved flaking scars. To the right of these is low angle, short, stepped retouch. Below the retouched edge, on the ventral face, a small notch has been removed. There is also a small amount of retouch in the ce…

Object type: THUMB NAIL SCRAPER
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Thumb nail scraper, made from a secondary flake, of probable Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date. The butt appears to have snapped off following deposition leaving a sharp break. However, very discreet ripples suggest that a soft hammer was probably used. The dorsal face has brown, matt, pebble cortex remaining on the right-hand side. In the centre and to the left of the dorsal face are two long, thin flaking scars. Above this, at the distal end, is semi-abrupt, long, scaled retouch. This retouch continues along both the right and left edges, becoming shorter and abrupt. The flint is da…

Large flint scraper of Neolithic or early Bronze Age date. The object is roughly semi-circular in form. It has a wide butt and prominent bulb, suggesting that a large, hard hammer was used in its production. The flint is very poor quality and mostly inner cortex. The dorsal face has three primary flaking scars on its surface and several laminar fractures around the proximal end. The distal end still has rough outer cortex remaining towards the left side. The right side has a number of low angle, short, parallel removals. Length: 61.53mm, Width: 47.90mm, Thickness: 17.43 Weight:

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint scraper or borer, created on a secondary flake, probably of Neolithic to early Bronze Age date c.3500-1500 BC. Fairly well worked for such a small object, but too mishapen to be a leaf-shaped arrowhead (though the object is vaguely leaf-shaped in form). The ventral face is slightly concave, whilst the dorsal face is convex, making the object slightly curved when viewed from the side. The dorsal face has several long, thin flaking scars across its surface and tapers to a small point at the distal end. This point shows signs of a small amount of further retouch suggesting that mayb…

Flint side scraper or knife, using a secondary flake, probably of Neolithic date. The object is leaf shaped, or sub-triangular in form with a vertical ridge running down the centre of the dorsal face. The proximal end has been rounded using rough retouch. Further long, scaled, semi-abrupt retouch can be seen along the extent of the curved right side of the dorsal face. The ventral face has a diffuse bulb of purcussion, although much of this has been removed during the retouch to the proximal end. The flint is light grey in colour, with frequent small patches of cortex remaining. Use o…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Crude flint side scraper, utilising a whole small flint nodule. One side of the nodule has been retouched in one place to form a sharp edge. The use of such extremely poor quality flint suggests that the material was obviously in short supply. The scraper probably dates from the late Neolithic or Bronze Age. Length: 44.15mm, Width: 25.20mm, Thickness: 11.44mm, Weight: 14.56g

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small flint implement, created on a secondary flake. Probably a scraper and notched-flake, but possibly an unusually shaped arrowhead. Sub-triangular in shape, the object does look rather like a crude or damaged Neolithic arrow-head. However, it is complete, apart from a missing tip to the distal end and would probably be too mishapen to function as an arrow head. Neither does it fit in well to the standard typology of arrowheads from this period. A small amount of cortex remains to the right of the distal end of the dorsal face. Semi-abrupt to low angle, invasive, scaled retouch can…

Probable flint side scraper. The object has a large, wide butt covered with chalky cortex. Both faces of convex. The dorsal face is quite rough, uneven and covered with small flaking scars, suggesting that it may be a rejuvenation flake from a core. The ventral face, however, is covered with fine, small removals and invasive, sub-parallel, low angle retouch along the left edge, suggesting that the flake has then been made into a scraper. It is probably of Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. Length: 35.96mm, Width: 31.12mm, Thickness: 19.99mm, Weight: 22.3g

Flint scraper, produced on a long, tertiary flake. The dorsal face has four long, thin flaking scars. The ventral face has a prominent bulb, but the striking platform is missing due to retouch. The right edge of the ventral face has sporadic low angle, very short, subparallel retouch. The upper right edge of the dorsal face has semi-abrupt, short, scaled retouch. This continued around the ventral end, becoming more abrupt here. The lower left edge of the dorsal face also has semi-abrupt, short, scaled retouch. The proximal end of the dorsal face has been shaped to a point using low ang…

Flint scraper, probably of Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. Tertiary flake. The object is sub-oval in shape. Both the proximal and distal ends are long and curve out slightly, joining together to form a slight, rounded point in the centre of each side. At the proximal end of the dorsal face are several small, stepped removals, becoming larger towards the centre and largely removing the butt. There are a few long, abrupt, parallel removals to the right of the proximal end. Along the left edge of the distal end is short, scaled, semi-abrupt retouch. There is a hinged fracture line on …

Flint scraper, probably of Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. Tertiary flake. The object is sub-circular in shape. There are a few parallel flaking scars on the dorsal face. On the left side of the dorsal face part of a very small clear quartz crystal geode can be seen embedded into the flint. This has been split open during the knapping process leaving only a small portion of the complete geode in place. Within this several tiny crystals can be seen. A degree on wear around this, particularly on the ventral face, suggests that this may have been deliberately used as a further feature…
