County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Damaged remains of a flint tool, probably a knife of Neolithic to Bronze age date. The piece is leaf shaped but much larger than an arrowhead. The outline appears mainly complete but breaks on both faces mean the extent of original retouch and exact form of the edges is unclear. A small amount of cortext (c.10% of the face) remains near the point on one face which may indicate it is unfinished and broke during production. The piece appears to have been formed on a large flake with pistal end now formed into the point. Some of the bulb of percussion may remain at the proximal end but …

Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete cast copper alloy buckle with forked spacer. Oval, lipped and notched frame. Copper alloy wire pin. The forked spacer consists of two 'prongs' which extend from the back of the frame and are roughly filed to provide a key when soldered to the composite double sheet copper alloy plates which are now missing. Most of the tinning still survives on the surface of the buckle frame. Whitehead (1996) illustrates a similar example on page 36, no.214, which is dated from c.1350-1450.
