A flake which has been snapped at both ends. There is a notch which has been worked, on the right hand edge. Also there are signs of serration along two edges. Could be described as a notched flake or a serrated piece. There are no signs of any cortex remaining. The flint is a medium grey, mottled, colour and was likely derived from a local beach pebble. Bond [2004] illustrates a notched flake on page 60 fig 5.37 No. F17, and serrated piece on page 61, fig 5.40, No. L28 which are dated to the Neolithic.

A truncated flake of chert which has been trimmed or worked along two edges - opposite each other. It has been broken or truncated along the edge opposite the proximal. Some parts of the surface of the flake has a speckled patina, on both the dorsal and ventral sides, with some clear areas. Can be described as an edge trimmed flake. The chert is an orange colour with speckled patina and slightly translucent, and was likely derived from a local beach pebble. Mercer [1981] illustrates a similar example on page 127, fig.55 No.L93 which is dated to the Neolithic.

It is now a flake but originally a blade as there is a break or snap along one edge. Can be described as a truncated flake which has had trim, or light serration, along two edges. There is also an incipient notch, not enought to describe the object as a notched flake. There is a flat edge at the proximal, opposite the snapped edge. The flint is light brown in colour and slightly translucent and was likely derived from a local beach pebble. Mercer [1981] illustrates a similar example on page 131, fig.57, No. L115 which is dated to the Neolithic.

This piece is shaped like a high, three faced pyramid. Each face has been cleared of cortex and the base is a flat, cortex free platform. Presumably this was the stricking the platform and is the proximal end. The (distal) tip area has retouch on one face and possibly on the opposite face, but this area is heavily abraded. It is made from a dark grey flint with light grey moments. It was probably derived from a local beach pebble but gives no clues from the tertiary cortex.

The point ha sbeen retouched on the right margin and is broken at the tip. The left dorsal margin has abrupt retouch from the dorsal face and at the distal third, semi-abrupt retouch from the ventral face. The piece is abraded, but could have been an effective saw, with a denticulated edge. It is made from a grey flint. It was probably derived fro…

This piece was probably a beach pebble of pasty shape. Cortex has been removed from both faces to enhance the sharpness of one margin without having to remove further flakes. The sharp edge is blunted in the middle section, probably from use wear rather than from abrupt retouch, but it is quite abraded. Cortex ha sbeen retained as a backing. It is made from a light grey flint with cream inclusions. It was probably derived from a local beach pebble by the look of its secondary cortex.

This is a backed knife with retained secondary cortex. The dorsal face has a semi-abrupt flake removal from a medial ridge towards the margin, but no other retouch.

It truncates some previous scars as though it has removed part of the flaking face of a flake core.This may have been for rejuvenation as there is an uncompleted hard hammer removal on the dorsal surface.The ventral surface has been thinned by 2 strikes which have ended in step fractures. This has been used as a platform to remove a sharp notch from the left margin. Butler(2005) illustrates a notched flake on page 169, fig 71, 8.

Flint pebble scraper, trapezoid in plan and lozenge shaped in profile. The dorsal side surface has ripples with serrations on the distal tip and upper right margin. The lower right margin is snapped and the left margin comprised of cortex. On the ventral side the right margin appears abraded. The flint has two white grey striations with dark grey bands in colouring. The secondary cortex is pale grey in tone. Bond (2004) illustrated a similar example on page 154, Fig. 5.138, No. 6 which is dated to the Neolithic period.

A short curved segment of a blade or flake of translucent brown flint. The dorsal surface has complex flake scars from a small multi-platform core or remnant. Both the distal and proximal ends have been truncated with the distal end shallowly sharpened and the proximal break semi-abruptly finished; perhaps a hafted element. The notches on each lateral margin may be to help this.Mercer illustrates a flake segment on page 143, fig 63, L204..

County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A corroded cast copper-alloy mount of post-medieval date. The mount is flat and symmetrical. It has a trefoil terminal, with a broadly trapezoidal body below that terminates unevenly, suggesting a previous continuation of the artefact. The upper surface of the mount is decorated in low relief created through vertically symmetrical curving foliate patterns in the form of fronds emerging from the centre line. The reverse features a single lug which begins at the extremity of the terminal and curves round towards the centre, presumably paired with a similar lug at the opposite end, now a…

On the upper surface there are three long removals at the tip at the distal end, one central, the others to each side (cf. an adze illustrated in Butler 2005, 106; ref. 42.1). At the tip a…

An incomplete cast copper alloy unidentified objet of uncertain date and function. It consists of a dome shaped base, with a broken integral shank projecting out of the bottom. On top of the base is a short square stem; on this is a lateral cylinder that is sub-oval in section. The cylinder has one side that is more convex than the other; the top is stepped. Both ends of the cylinder are flat, with old breaks in its centre indicating there was more attached to it; one side has an off-centre projection of more copper alloy, whilst the other end has a mass of iron corrosion, althoug…

A probable copper alloy strap slider of medieval or post medieval date. The fitting is roughly trefoil shaped with the remains of what appears to be grooved decoration on the front. On the reverse is a rectangular loop, also rectangular in cross section, which allowed the object to be threaded onto a belt or harness strap. The strap slider has suffered extensive corrosion resulting in the loss of surface detail, making this example difficult to date closely. Numerous similar examples of various dates may be seen on this database, for example LIN-8768E5.

A cast copper alloy post-medieval strap fitting. The fitting consists of a folded sheet of copper alloy mostly oval in plan but with the upper face having collared mouldings and terminating in a lys design. There is one rivet near this terminal projecting through to the backplate. The loop formed by the folded sheet of copper alooy may have served as a suspension loop for items that could be hung or secured to a strap or belt, such as a purse or small blade. The object has been gilded and form the form it the object likely dates to the early post-medieval period, c. AD 1500-1600.

The plan is a pointed symmetrical leaf shape, very much like a leaf arrow head but for a somewhat thicker section.
