Record ID: SOM-F35C67
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint end and side scraper of probable Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date. The scraper is sub-rectangular in form, utilising a tertiary flake. The butt is wide and slightly concave. The bulb is diffuse and the ripple lines discreet. All suggesting that a large, soft hammer was used. There are two large flaking scars on the dorsal face, with a few smaller ones at both the proximal and distal ends. There is a small amount of abrupt to semi-abrupt, long, scaled retouch on the right edge and a little abrupt to semi-abrupt, short, scaled retouch in places at the distal end. The flint is lig…

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small tertiary flint waste flake. Two long thin flaking scars on the right side of the dorsal face may indicate slight reworking to enable the object to be used as a scraper, but there is no further evidence for this. An abrupt break across the distal end may be the result of plough damage.The flint is light brown in colour, with lighter patches. It is poor quality. Neolithic to early Bronze Age. Length: 32.36mm, Width: 23.68mm, Thickness: 4.29mm Weight: 3.62

Flint side scraper of probable Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. Tertiary flint flake. The object is roughly leaf shaped with a pointed distal end. The butt is fairly narrow and there is a pronounced bulb and clear ripples on the ventral face suggesting that a small, hard hammer was used. There is retouch along the left side and around the distal end of the dorsal face. This is long, parallel and low angle towards the proximal end, becoming semi-abrupt towards the distal end. The flint is light grey in colour, mottled with small whitish patches. It remains in fairly good condition wi…

Flint end scraper of probable Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. Secondary flint flake. The fairly broad butt and pronounced bulb suggest that a moderately large, hard hammer was used. A tiny amount of cortex remains on the left side towards the proximal end. The distal end of the dorsal face is rounded with a small amount of long, parallel, low angle to semi-abrupt retouch. The flint is light grey in colour with a few slightly darker patches and a very shiny patina. It survives in fairly good condition, though a few edges do seem subject to later damage.

Flint end scraper of probable Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. Secondary flake; a small amount of cortex remains at the distal end. The very wide butt and large, pronounced bulb suggests that a large, hard hammer was used. There appears to be a small amount of short, parallel, low angle retouch along the wide, curving distal end and two flaking scars on the dorsal face, but the objects is otherwise little worked. It is dark brown in colour with a fairly shiny patina and the edges remain sharp. Length: 32.38mm, Width: 19.87mm, Thickness: 8.88mm Weight: 4.38g

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint implement, probably an unusually shaped oblique arrowhead of late Neolithic date. The object is sub-triangular in form, but the side at the distal end curves inwards slightly leaving the two corners protruding, one wide and rounded and the other thinner, giving the object a slightly asymmetrical shape. Small flaking scars cover the dorsal face and the edges of the ventral face. Long, parallel, abrupt retouch at the distal end and patches of long, scaled, low-angle retouch along the left side, can both be seen on the dorsal face. On the ventral face there is fine, short, sub-paral…

Worked flint side scraper, made from a secondary flake. The dorsal face has a central ridge running its length. To the right of this, the majority of the dorsal face is corticated. To the left is a long flaking scar, with two smaller ones at the promimal end. The left edge of the dorsal face has short semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral face is slightly convex. The flint is dark brown-grey with a light-grey patch on the ventral face at the bulb of purcussion. The object is probably of Neolithic to Bronze Age date.

Four tertiary flint waste flakes, found close together. All four have elongated flaking scars on the dorsal face, suggesting blade manufacture. None have evidence of further retouch.

Small worked flint side scraper formed on a tertiary flake. The flake is roughly leaf shaped, with a pointed tip at the distal end. The ventral face is convex and uneven, with a prominent bulb of purcussion. The dorsal face has a central ridge, with a large flaking scar on either side. At the proximal end are a number of small flaking scars on the left hand side. The right hand side has abrupt to semi-abrupt, short, parallel retouch running from the proximal end up to a few millimeters before the tip. The flint is mid-grey in colour with lighter patches in places. This scraper is likel…

Small flint blade of probable Neolithic to Bronze Age date. The blade is made from a secondary flake – there is still cortex covering the right-hand side of the dorsal face. There are two long flaking scars on the dorsal face. The distal end has evidence of a break, suggesting that the blade was once longer. The flint is dark grey-brown in colour.

Flint side and end scraper, made from a tertiary flake, of probable Neolithic to Bronze Age date. The scraper has several small flaking scars on the dorsal face, particularly at the proximal end. Along the upper part of the left-side of the dorsal face are a series of very small, short, abrupt, scaled removals. These continue towards the distal end. However, their extent cannot be determined as a notch is now missing at this end, probably due to later plough damage following deposition. The flint is dark grey-brown in colour.

Large worked and notched tertiary flint flake of Neolithic to Bronze Age date. The flake is sub-triangular in form. The dorsal face has two long removals, running its length, with a smaller one on the right-hand side. The left-hand side of the ventral face has short, semi-abrupt, scaled removals running from about one third of the way up, culminating in a small worked notch close to the distal end. The flint ranges in colour from light to dark grey, speckled with white. Length: 47.59mm, Width: 30.72mm, Thickness: 6.71mm Weight: 8.59g

Large notched secondary flint flake, of probable Neolithic to Bronze Age date. The dorsal face is highly convex in shape with four long flaking scars running from the proximal end and five further scars running in the opposite direction at the distal end on the left-hand side. This suggests that the object is possibly a large rejuvenation flake removed from a blade core. The flake is pointed at both ends, with an apparently deliberately worked notch on the right-hand side at the distal end. The flake is otherwise unworked. There is a very small amount of cortex remaining on the left-ha…

Composite flint tool of probable Neolithic to Bronze Age date, with a scraper on one side and borer on the other. The ventral face is smooth, but uneven. It has a prominent bulb of percussion on the left-hand side, before becoming concave towards the centre. The dorsal face has seven large flaking scars running from one end to the other. The right-hand side has abrupt, short to long, scaled removals allowing it to be used as a scraper. Whilst the left-hand side has a borer formed from two flaking scars, with a small amount of further retouch in a few places. The colour of the flint ran…

Small notched flint waste flake of probable Neolithic to Bronze Age date. The flake has three parallel flaking scars on the dorsal face. A 'V' shaped notch is missing at the proximal end. This is possibly resulting from frost or plough damage following deposition. On the left-hand side of the dorsal face is another notch that appears to have been deliberately worked and shows some possible signs of wear through use. Below this, towards the proximal end could be a few abrupt, short, scaled removals, but their small size and extent makes this difficult to confirm. The flint is light grey…

Notched tertiary flint flake of probable Neolithic to Bronze age date. Small 'V' shaped flint waste flake. Part of the notch of the 'V' may possibly show signs of very limited reworking to enhance it further. However, this is likely to be simply a waste flake. The flint is dark grey-brown in colour.
