Record ID: SF-B6453A
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint side and end scraper of probable Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. A sub-triangular, tertiary flake. It is finely worked with sub-parallel and scaled, long, low-angle to semi-abrupt retouch along all edges of the dorsal face. There is an additional small patch of scaled, invasive, low angle retouch to the left of the bulb on the ventral face. The flint is a translucent light brown colour and there is mottled patination covering the dorsal face only. Produced using a semi-hard hammer. Length: 42.39mm, width: 35.83mm, thickness: 8.49mm, weight: 13.74g

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete flint scraper of probable Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. A long, narrow tertiary flake with an abrupt transverse break across the centre as a result of which the proximal end is now missing. The flint is a light brown colour with heavy orange staining on both faces. There is long, semi-abrupt, scaled retouch across the left edge of the distal end of the dorsal face. This retouch is slightly less stained suggesting it may be a later addition to an older flake. There is no staining within the central break suggesting it is a recent occurrence. Length: 53.08g, width: …

An assemblage of three side scrapers probably dating from the the Neolithic to Early Bronze Age. Scraper 1 has been struck off a secondary flake and retains some thin mottled brown pebble cortex on its dorsal surface. The flint is a variable mottled grey/brown colour colour with a dark grey band, off white inclusions and lighter patches. It has a semi-glossy patina. The scraper is sub-rectangular in plan with the left and right edges being curved and the proximal and distal edges being on angles. The right edge, as seen when looking at the dorsal face has very short parallel, semi abr…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Neolithic polished flint axehead dating c. 4000 - 2400 BC. The axehead is sub-rectangular in plan with sides tapering from the cutting edge to a sub-trapezoidal butt. When viewed in profile, one edge of the axehead has a bowed line. The axehead has a pointed-oval cross section. The axehead has been polished, with one side of the cutting edge being more worn than the other and with one face exhibiting distinct facets; this suggests the axehead has been resharpened and potentially more substantially reworked, as might also be suggested by it's small size. There are some large, hinged r…

An assemblage of six end scrapers probably dating to the Neolithic period. Scraper 1 is a side and end scraper of possible Neolithic date (c.4000-2400 BC). The scraper is struck off a secondary flake on which is a very small portion of a thin chalky white cortex. The flint is a medium brown-grey colour with one large orange brown patch and smaller off similarly coloured inclusions. It has a glossy patina. The scraper is sub-rectangular. Both left and right mesal edges and the distal edge have sub-parallel, semi abrupt retouch on their dorsal face. These do not run the entire length of…

A blunt nosed lithic scraper from a secondary flake, probably later Neolithic to early Bronze age c. 2500 - 1500 BC. The scrapper looks to be formed on a reused, or reworked waste flake and or debitage of chert/flint. Roughly an hourglass in plan with large double mesial notches and broad in section, it is formed on an opaque dull grey chert, with modest amounts of off-white staining and a large section of cortex to the dorsal surface. The lithic has large reworked hollow scrappers to either side that may be deliberate reworking for stripping things like bark from arrowheads and or, sh…

The dorsal face has a pair of converging ridges with conchoidal ripple marks to their centre. The edges have no clear deliberate input to form a scrapper/blade although that which has the look of scaled retouch, is likely to be from its time in the ground. Some intervention to form a blade/scrapper can't be rul…

Two pieces of flint show signs of having been burnt while another, which is differentiated from the rest of the assemblage by its deep red colour, may have been gently heated. Most typically have a semi-glossy patina with a few which are glossy. The flint has a variety of colours, and forms. 9 of the flakes are a bright orange or orangey brown colour, 10 are creamy white and the remaining p…

Record ID: SOM-F9C5FE
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An assemblage of three scrapers with retouched curved distal edge probably dating to the Neolithic period, one of which may be termed a horseshoe scraper. Scraper 1 is a scraper of possible Neolithic date (c.4000-2400 BC). The scraper is struck off a tertiary flake. The flint is a medium grey colour with brown patches and frequent off-white inclusions. It has a semi-glossy patina. The scraper is trapezoidal with the left and right edges angling outwards from the short proximal edge to the wider distal edge which is convex. This distal edge has short parallel, semi abrupt retouch on it…

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two retouched flint flakes of probable Neolithic date. Flake 1 is made from a secondary flint flake that has a thin white pebble cortex the flint of which is a dark brown-grey colour. It is trapezoidal in plan with its right angled edge, as seen from the dorsal surface, being slightly curved. The dorsal surface has one earlier flake removal removing some of the cortex and has sub-parallel, low-angled retoutch on its right edge as seen from the dorsal surface. The ventral surface is plain with a medium sized bulb of percussion and clear conchoidal ripples emanating from it. The strikin…

Object type: HAMMERSTONE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete possible hammer stone of probable Neolithic date (c.4000 - 2400 BC). The object is a flint pebble with an irregular but rounded form. The object has been damaged in multiple points with much of the thick white pebble cortex missing. the flint is a light grey with frequent light brown and mottled white patches and inclusions. One region of cortex has a series of small percussion marks giving the surface a dimpled/pecked surface. This likely occured through the repeated hammering of this point of stone hundreds of times. Presumably when used as a hammer stone in the knapping …

Object type: CORE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A collection of two Mesolithic to Neolithic (c. 8000 - 2400 BC) flint core fragments. Core 1 is a small, and near exhausted, single platform conical flint core, probably dating to the Neolithic (c. 4000-2400 BC), although it could potentially be earlier. The core is of an dark grey/brown with with off-white patches and occasional orange inclusions. It is approximately D-Shaped in plan, profile and cross section. The striking platform has a single flake removal taken horizontally to provide a flat(ish) and even striking surface.The flakes taken from the outside edge of the core are el…
