Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A broken flint scraper made from a tertiary flake, probably of early Bronze Age date. At the proximal end is the bulb of percussion from which ripples radiate down the ventral surface. There is some damage and possibly some minor retouch around the bulb. Part of the distal end has been broken off the scraper. On the dorsal surface there are many flaking scars, including some invasive retouch towards the edge. This probably formerly extended around the missing edge. The dark slightly brownish grey flint has a mid gloss patina. Dimensions: 31.81mm by 28.4mm by 10.24mm Weight: 8.84g

A flint end scraper which probably dates from the early Bronze Age. The scraper has been made from a primary flake and nodule cortex covers much of the dorsal surface. At the proximal end is the striking platform, below which on the ventral side is the bulb of percussion, a prounuced bulbar scar and slight ripples which radiate for the whole length of the scraper. The distal end has been retouched. There is also some edge damage on the lateral edges. The mottled light and mid grey flint has a low gloss patina.

Lithic implement. Hazel Martingell kindly notes that this is an early Bronze Age bi-facially worked knife. It is rectangular in plan and lentoid in section. It is made on a piece of rich brown flint with a patch of mid grey. Each face is clearly carefully flaked and the edges retouched. The knife is broken, having snapped at one end. It has a surviving length of 37.58mm, is 17.24mm wide, 5.36mm thick and weighs 5g. Knives of this date are considered to be unusual finds in Essex.

A leaf shaped flint dagger, measuring 171mm in length, 50mm in width and 12.7mm in thickness. The tip is missing and one edge beside the tip is apparently reworked with steep edge retouch. Elsewhere there is fine all-over bifacial shallow flaking. The butt end is flatish and has a thicker cross-section than the tip half. The flint is a pale to medium grey and is atypical of the majority of local flint though reminiscent of flint axe coluring, suggesting a possible import into the area. Flint daggers were introduced as part of the so-called 'beaker package,' although Upper Palaeol…

Cream and light grey flint object, probably late Bronze Age. There are flake scars and ripples on all surfaces. At one end, presumably the distal end, the object appears to have been worked into a blade. Towards the proximal end, on one side there is a notch that appears to have been deliberately worked as there are flake scars and ripples. However, there is a flaw in the flint, which may have caused difficulties in working the flint. The object appears to be unfinished.

County: Essex

Incomplete barbed and tanged flint arrowhead. This arrowhead has suffered some damage and is now missing the points to each barb and most of the tang. It is 33.68mm long, 27.82mm wide, 4.22mm thick and weighs 3.87g. The two long sides of the arrowhead form an angle of approximately 45 degrees. The flint is opaque and mid grey in colour, with small patches of creamy white. Flint arrowheads of this type were in use in the early Bronze Age sometime between 2200 and 1400BC. An example can also be seen in Pierpoint 1981, Prehistoric Flintwork in Britain figure 13, number 17.

A beautiful and well preserved example of a flint knife, dating from the Bronze Age. The knife measures 63.4 mm long, 23 mm wide, and is lozengiform in section. The artefact is bi-faced, with fine invasive retouch on both the dorsal and ventral surfaces. The fine workmanship was achieved by pressure flaking, probably using a bone or antler tool. The flint itself is of a mottled grey colour. The quality of craftsmanship implies that this artefact dates to the earlier Bronze Age, as there is evidence that there is a decline in technical competency throughout the Bronze Age (Bond 'Guide t…
