Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Gloucestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Late Neolithic to Bronze Age flint scraper, probably dating to c. 3,300-800 BC. A tertiary flake of mottled beige-grey flint, with one surviving striking platform and relatively pronounced bulb of percussion, without a bulbar scar. The dorsal face exhibits a series of sub-parallel removals, all struck from the same platform as the overall flake removal, with pronounced conchoidal ripple marks. The distal end of the dorsdal face exhibits short, abrupt, stepped retouch. Length 41.1mm; width 44.7mm; thickness 11.1mm; weight 23.83g. It is difficult to date a single undignostic flint t…

An incomplete flint axehead, possibly part of an unfinished roughout dating to the Neolithic period (c. 4000-2400 BC). The surviving piece is probably part of a broken blade end that is roughly oval in shape with a squared-off edge at the break. Most of the butt end appears to be missing. The surviving blade end is roughly lentoidal in cross-section with a convex curved blade that tapers roughly evenly in width to the blade edge. Neither the blade, edges nor surfaces have any evidence of polishing though there are several patches of cortex, especially towards the broken edge. The flint…

County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint retouched flake of probable neolithic date, about 4000 BC - 2200 BC. It is a secondary flake of tan to light grey coloured flint, with cortex on the distal end. The proximal end has been extensively worked, removing the striking platform. There is a small area of neat short, sub-parallel, abrupt retouch at the distal end of the right side, and in the middle of the right side is a removal along the right edge which forms a possible denticulate. The flint is partially patinated. The object is 27.3mm long, 24.8mm wide and 7.9mm thick. It weighs 6.11g.

A fragment originating from a knapped flint tranchet adze of probable Mesolithic date, c. 6000-4000 BC. The fragment consists the butt end of the adze, broken around a quarter of the way down the original object in an old, patinated oblique hinge fracture. The fragment is broadly semi-circular in plan, with a flattened underside and prominent dorsal arrise on its upper face-giving it an overall triangular section. Almost the entirety of the original support surface has been removed by secondary working, which takes the form of highly invasive bifacial removals-probably detached via mea…

A struck oblong blade of dark brown flint, with triangular cross sectional profile, which has been removed from a core.

Early Mesolithic to Neolithic flint blade. The blade is sub triangular in plan and trapezoidal in cross section. A small part of the cortex remains on the dorsal face, close to the distal end. This is indicative of secondary phase working on the core. A central tapering negative scar is flanked either side by a further negative scar. Damage to the blade is revealed by unpatinated nicks to the sides and slight damage to the distal end. Short, scaled, low angle retouch is present along the longitudinal sides and snapped proximal end of the blade on the dorsal face. Very faint conchoidal …

Very large and well-formed "statement" Handaxe, of Wymer's (1999) Type F (pointed), originally of mottled light grey flint now patinated various shades of buff due to exposure of the surfaces to glacial sands and gravels, the coarser inclusions are tending to the darker range. It is complete, with only minor ancient damage to the tip (type iii, ogee point), a small chip to one lateral edge is recent and shows the original colour of the flint, and similarly the base of the butt has a small, unpatinated removal. All flake removals are soft hammer struck from well prepared platforms, rem…

The distal end of a flint scraper of Mesolithic to Early Bronze Age date. The piece is a secondary flake in black translucent flint with some cortex remaining on one side. There is an irregular snap at the proximal end. The aris and scars on the dorsal face suggest repeated blade removals from the same direction. There is invasive, parallel semi-abrupt retouch at the distal end on the dorsal face becoming shallower towards the centre. There is long, scalar semi-abrupt retouch down the right edge on the ventral face. This may suggest the piece was reused or had double use as a side and …

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
One retouched flint blade of probably Mesolithic date. The blade is a tertiary piece with evidence in the form of aris and scars on the dorsal face for previous parallel removals from the same platform. There is a very small bub of percussion at the proximal end. The distal end is snapped at an angle. A notch adjacent to this snap suggests it was deliberate and part of the process of making microliths. It is made in mid grey opaque flint with pale mottling and 32.6mm long, 15.6mm wide, 4.7mm thick and weighs 2.36g.

One retouched flint blade of probably Mesolithic to early Neolithic date. The blade is a tertiary piece with evidence in the form of aris and scars on the dorsal face for previous parallel removals from the same platform. The platform and bulb of percussion have been removed by a hinge fracture at the proximal end running down the ventral face. The distal end is snapped. There is short scalar semi-abrupt retouch running down the entire left edge on the dorsal face and larger chips, probably damge on the right edge. It is made in mid grey-brown translucent flint and 53.3mm long, 18.8mm …

County: Somerset

Two pieces of flint debitage of Mesolithic to early Neolithic date. Both are pieces of snapped blades or flakes, one the distal end and possibly wide enough to have been a flake, the other is the centre of a long blade. Both show scars on the dorsal face from repeated previous blade like removals from the same platform. The distal end is a tertiary piece in dark grey / black flint and may have some chips from use at the end although no clear retouch. The middle bit of blade is a secondary piece with cortex down one side in mid-grey flint with paler mottling. They weigh 5.02g together.

Two fragments of flint cores of Mesolithic to Bronze Age date. Both appear to have been used to produce blade like pieces with repeated removals from a prepared platform. Due to the size of the pieces these blades, at least the last to be produced were very short. The dark grey piece (13.47g) is sub-conical with cortex left on one side and parallel removals from an upper platform. The beige-brown piece (35.68g) also has cortex left along one side but has a broken with a large section, possibly 50% or more, missing to a impact in the centre of the upper platform. There are the scars for…

Early Neolithic (c. 4000 to 3500 BC) end scraper: The scraper appears to be knapped from a long flake which is sub-rectangular with a sub trapezoidal section. The dorsal surface has broadly three vertical scars with one lateral edge appearing to be damaged, but not recently. The proximal end tapers in depth. The distal end has abrupt re-touch. The ventral surface has a bulb of percussion and faint conchoidal ripples. The scraper is knapped from flint which has a well-developed cream patina.

A flint flake, likely an unfinished projectile point. The flake is lenticular in plan, profile and section; it is 39.5 mm in length, 26.5 mm in width, 9 mm in thickness and 8.65 g in weight. The flake is a secondary flake of grey flint with pale grey inclusions, derived from a local beach pebble. There is a patch of grey cortex at the right margin of dorsal face and 13 mm along one edge from this patch is the point of percussion, at the proximal end, with the adjacent bulb of percussion visible on the ventral face. The poor quality of the flint has resulted in irregular fracturing to f…
