Record ID: SOM-923563
Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age transverse arrowhead. The artefact is a thin triangular tertiary flake made from medium grey flint with a region of lighter grey and occasional pebble cortex like inclusions. The flint has a medium gloss patina. The arrowhead is sub-triangular in form with one long edge being slightly more curved that its opposite number. The base of the arrowhead has been fractured leaving a clean linear break at the base of the arrow. The arrowhead has low angled scaled retouch on both the ventral and dorsal surface. On the dorsal surface this cover…

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete late Neolithic flint arrowhead of the transverse chisel point type. In plan the flint is a sub-triangular shape. The broad cutting edge of the arrowhead is unworked. Both sides are initially curved using invasive retouch to undercut the broad chisel frontage and subsequently taper linearly and symmetrically to a rounded shaft-end. The thickest point of the arrowhead is just behind the cutting edge which coincides with the widest part of the flint. The flint is a dark grey in colour and is translucent in places. It is 28.3mm long, 28.5mm at its widest point, 4mm thick and wei…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a Neolithic (c.3500-2351 BC) polished flint axehead. The surviving fragment is from the cutting end of the axe and represents an estimated one third of the original length of the tool. The axe typology is a Field type C with a lenticular cross-section with facetted sides. The flint is a mottled grey colour and has a well patinated surface. The break is transverse to the longitudinal axis and perpendicular to the axe surface, and may have occurred where the axe was hafted. One surface of the axe has a large flake removal scar with conchoidal ripples indicating the striking…

A collection of two flint core fragments probably dated to the Later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age period. Core 1 is a medium sized single platform conical flint core, probably dating to the Neolithic period (c. 4000-2400 BC). The core is of a medium grey with frequent off-white mottled conclusions. It has small patches of orange staining from local iron deposits in the soil. It is approximately D-Shaped in plan, profile and cross section.

A group of two pieces of flint debitage of probable Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date (c. 3000 - 1600 BC). Both the pieces are of flint, and are tertiary flakes. Both have a semi-glossy patina. The flint is a medium grey colour with frequent white spotted inclusions. Both are sub-rectangular in plan and have at least two earlier flake removals. The flakes removed are linear and narrow as are the flakes themselves indicating narrow blade manufacture.

A group of four pieces of burnt flint debitage of probable Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date (c. 3000 - 1600 BC). All four pieces are of flint, three of which are secondary flakes retaining a reddish pebble cortex. The last piece is a tertiary flake. The tertiary flake and one of the secondary flakes have been re-patinated by fire to a milky white colour. Both these flakes have shallow cracks revealing a darker grey while one flake is less fire patinated on its ventral surface such that it might have been burnt before being flaked off a core. There are traces of iron staining o…

Complete barbed and tanged arrow head of early Bronze Age date c.2200-1800 BC. The arrow head is of a light grey opaic flint of unpatinated dark grey flint with paler inclusions. It is ogival in plan and the face is covered by hammer struck retouch marks. The left-hand tang (when viewed from the dorsal face, point up) has been broken and reworked resulting in a minor discrepancy between barb lengths, or it is just difficulty with working a rather thick part of the initial flake blank. The point also appears to have been broken with no reworking. Length: 16.41mm, Width: 16.8mm, Thickn…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…
