Record ID: HESH-0856D4
Object type: THUMB NAIL SCRAPER
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint thumbnail (side and end) scraper of later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2300 -1800BC). The scraper is formed from a grey colour piece of flint with a relatively uniform matrix. It is created from a tertiary flake (due to the size of the scraper this may originally be debitage). The ventral face shows clear evidence of the bulb of percussion and conchoidal fractures. The bulb has been trimmed by flaking and an area of modern damage can be seen on one of the worked edges. The dorsal face has a series of flake facets, where flakes have been removed to thin the thickness of the…

County: County of Herefordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Mesolithic flint micro-scraper on a flake, sometimes referred to as thumbnail scrapers. The flake is short, rounded and convex. The tool is 18.6 mm from proximal to distal end and 22.5 mm wide from lateral edge to lateral edge. The striking platform is clearly visible at the butt as is the bulb of percussion and bulb scar. Cortex remains at the proximal end. The distal end has semi-abrubpt retouch which extends around the flake along both lateral sides. The flint is dark grey to brown in colour apart from the area of cortex at the butt which is a pale brown in colour. Scrapers are…

Struck flint scraper of later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2900-1800 BC). The scraper is broadly oval in shape being formed from a relatively thick piece of flint; it is oval in cross section. It is likely that the flint represents reuse of debitage (waste flakes from tool making) as a small area of cortex survives. The upper dorsal face of the scraper exhibits a large number of flake scars suggesting that this piece has been heavily worked / reworked. The ventral face is flat with a series of conchoidal ripples and the remains of the bulb of percussion. The striking platform ha…

Flint thumb nail (horseshoe) scraper of later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2300 -1800BC). The scraper is formed from a mottled grey coloured piece of flint with a relatively thick white surface patina. It is created from a tertiary flake (due to the size of the scraper this may originally be debitage). The ventral face shows clear evidence of conchoidal fractures that ripple across the underside of the flake; the point of percussion and the bulb of percussion have both been removed. The dorsal face has multiple and layered series of flake facets. These are most dense around t…
