Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lilly Chitty Collection An Early Bronze Age barbed and tanged arrowhead (2,500 to 1,500 BC), light grey in colour. This piece is sub-triangular in plan and sub-rectilinear in section.

Object type: THUMB NAIL SCRAPER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lilly Chitty Collection A Bronze Age thumbnail scraper (2,500 to 800 BC), black in colour. This piece is sub-circular in plan and sub-triangular in section. The eighth of 10 pieces, this piece has the number "8" written in biro on a label stuck to the ventral face. This small scraper, made of high quality black flint, has been subjected to a substantial amount of weathering, and was probably found within the vicinity of a paleochannel, as it looks and feels water-worn. Despite this wear, some rings of percussion are still visible on the dorsal face where flakes have been removed…
