Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A scraper of probable Neolithic date, 4000 - 2350 BC. The scraper is formed from a secondary flake. The flake is mottled grey in colour. There is a small amount of cortex remaining on the dorsal face. Flakes have been removed towards the left mesal to facilitate holding the scraper between the thumb and first index finger. There is extensive, semi-abrupt, sub-parallel, invasive retouch to the right mesal. On the ventral face there is a low bulb of percussion made from a soft hammer blow. There is a large striking platform at the proximal end. Length: 31.1mm, Width:31.4mm, Thickness: 1…

A scraper of probable Neolithic date, 4000 - 2350 BC. The scraper is formed from a secondary flake, sub-ovate in plan and roughly concave in section. The flake is mottled grey in colour. There is a large amount of cortex remaining on the dorsal face with a few small flakes removed. There is extensive semi-abrupt, sub-parallel, invasive retouch to the right mesal. On the ventral face there is a low bulb of percussion made from a soft hammer blow. At the distil end the flake is pierced by a small hole, approximately 4mm by 3mm. This piercing is probably natural resulting from a small fos…

County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A worked flint axehead of Neolithic date (c. 3500 - c. 2100 BC). The implement has been extensively knapped into a sub-oval cross section, with a tapering plan. It consists of a large terminal with a cutting face. The opposing terminal is broadly round with some cortex remaining on a prominent nodule, possibly indicative of an unfinished implement. The tool exhibits an asymmetric cross section, where one side of the central chord is flatter than the other. The edges have retouch in places. The flint is a mixture of greys, ranging from lighter to darker. All faces exhibit some orange ir…

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 …
