Record ID: SOMDOR-493D03
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint pebble recovered through fieldwalking in Rimpton. Flint is not natural to this area and the pebble must have been imported, possibly for use as a sling shot. There are no obvious signs of wear to suggest it had another function. It weighs 38.99g and measures 38.20mm x 29.61mm x 25.04mm. Possibly of Iron Age date.

Object type: END SCRAPER
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small flint end scraper, almost square in shape at the distal end, before widening into a semi-circular proximal scraping and cutting surface. On the dorsal face this effect is somewhat marred by the presence of a relatively large amount of the cortex remaining at the proximal end. The flint is an irregular biface, with the ventral face very flat and smooth, despite a curve in the flint which is not really visible but may be felt. The flint itself is a grey colour, with areas of both lighter and darker grey shades, while the cortex is brown with an almost white surface showing throug…

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Medway
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A human worked piece of flint derived from a small round section beach pebble. It has been strongly but quite slowly heated by fire to an orangey red colour with dark red remaining cortex. Only a thin but complete circumference of this is left as both ends of the pebble are missing. This may have been mostly from spalling but it is possible that some pecking also removed the hackly and brittle internally crazed flint. The less even end is slightly concave and although the surface is hackly it has been smoothed at its edges where it meets the cortex. It has a small 2mm square shiny bla…

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint implement of possible Neolithic to Bronze Age date (3500 BC-800 BC). The tool is sub-rectangular in plan and cross-section and has been manufactured on a flat piece of flint. The dorsal surfaces has a sandy/buff coloured cortex and the edges have been knapped to an abrupt angle with short, scaled and stepped removals. The ventral surface is flat and featureless and is covered in a thin layer of greyish brown cortex. This tool has an unusual form and may have been used for scraping. 116.43 x 35.36 x 21.06mm. Weight: 117.38g. No analogy found.

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible end scraper of Iron Age date. It is struck from a black glassy flint with grey chert patches. The ventral face has heavy patination, the dorsal face has no patination. It is slightly squat and D-shaped in section. There is heavy modern damage on the dorsal face but the distal end still has the remains of abrupt edge retouch. Circa 2% cortex remaining on the dorsal face. This flint measures 46.31mm in length, 44.52mm in width, 15.49mm in thickness, 31.92g in weight.

A primary flake of flint with at least 45% of dorsal surface covered in cortex. Distinctive ripples run across the ventral.There appears to be no reuse or reworking of the flake. The material itself is semi transparent, with a ruddy-brown tinge that deepens and the thickness increases.

Three pieces of flint debitage which may have been used as simple scrapers possibly dating to the late Bronze Age or early Iron Age tentatively dated to c 1100-600 BC. 1 - The largest piece weighs 29.32g and measures 53.65mm in length, 47.35mm in width and 14.4mm in thickness. There is evidence of a bulb of percussion and concoidal rings. There is some evidence of crude retouch along one edge. There is evidence of the cortex on the dorsal face and the retouched edge has evidence of recortexing. The ventral face is mid brown with white marks possibly of recortex. 2 - This piece is sub…

Object type: DENTICULATE
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible coarse flint denticulate/scraper hybrid tool likely dating to the late Bronze Age or Iron age c.1000BC - 0BC . Description: The scraper was produced from a secondary flake, possibly accidentally created. The scraper is semi-circular in plan. Barring the retouch along the curved edge there is little obvious flaking, likely indicating the use of a natural or accidental flake, typical of flint manufacture after the middle Bronze Age. The curved edge has short scaled semi-abrupt retouch producing a scraping edge. At the top edge is a denticulate removal creating an indent with…

County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint scraper likely of late Bronze Age to Iron Age date. Description: The scraper is ovoid, with large sweeping rounded edges. The scraper is triangular in cross-section. The scraping edge is formed from irregular invasive semi-abrupt retouch at the proximal end (striking platform end), this changes towards the distal end to abrupt indicating blunting of the corner. The retouch is struck from the both faces. The dorsal side still has about a third of the mid brown cortex remaining. The ventral side has some working and a substantial teadrop shaped bulb of percussion and substantial…

A flint scraper likely of late Bronze Age to Iron Age date. Description: The scraper is irregularly shaped, with a large sweeping rounded blade edge, a pointed butt and a slightly concave final edge opposite to the blade edge. The scraping edge is formed from irregular invasive semi-abrupt retouch. The reotuch is struck from the dorsal side. The dorsal side still has about a quarter of the mid brown cortex remaining. There is a some crushing on the concave edge through the cortex whcih may be to blunt this edge. The ventral side has no working a modest bulb of percussion and substanti…
