Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint scraper of probable Late Neolithic to Bronze Age date, c. AD 2700-1000. The scraper is worked from a secondary flake of opaque dark grey flint mottled with paler inclusions with a small amount of cortex remaining in the centre of the dorsal face. The flake widens from the proximal to the distal end. A striking platform with a bulb of percussion on the ventral face survives at the proximal end. Negative removal scars from hinged removals from the same platform are present on the dorsal face. The flake is worked unifacially, struck from the ventral face, with relatively long, abr…

A knapped flint side scraper on a broken tertiary flake, scalar semi-abrupt directly applied retouch forming a rounded convex working edge. Most of the platform shattered away in old damage. Length down percussion axis: 29.05mm, 39.63mm maximum width, 9.23mm thick at its midpoint. Weight: 14.51g. The crude nature of this piece suggests Middle-Late Bronze Age manufacture, c. 1500-750 BC.

A Late Neolithic to Bronze Age flint scraper, probably dating to c. 3,300-800 BC. A tertiary flake of mottled beige-grey flint, with one surviving striking platform and relatively pronounced bulb of percussion, without a bulbar scar. The dorsal face exhibits a series of sub-parallel removals, all struck from the same platform as the overall flake removal, with pronounced conchoidal ripple marks. The distal end of the dorsdal face exhibits short, abrupt, stepped retouch. Length 41.1mm; width 44.7mm; thickness 11.1mm; weight 23.83g. It is difficult to date a single undignostic flint t…

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint end scraper of probably Bronze Age date, 2200-1000 BC. The scraper is made on a thick secondary flake struck of a previous removal with a large area of cortex, inclusing an indent, remaining down on side. The flint is mottled mid-grey with lighter areas. The percussion waves on the platform and the scars from previous removals on the dorsal face suggest this was struck off a multi-platform core. There is a very large bulb of percussion on the ventral face. There is long, semi-parallel, semi abrupt retouch around the distal end on the dorsal face. There is damage and chipping, pos…

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark grey, appearing brown under transmitted light, flint with cortex; notched scraper. Flake with a broad flake trimmed from its dorsal side by hard hammer strike, and with a bulb at the narrower end of a markedly concave ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect follows part of one edge to form a notch. The appearance of similar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect is misleading, and arises from adventitious edge-on impacts. The finder kindly cites PUBLIC-7040A5 as a parallel. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC Length: 41.1mm, Width: …

Object type: BARBED AND TANGED ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Leeds
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint barbed and tanged arrowhead dating from the Beaker Period to Middle Bronze Age, about 2400 BC - 1000 BC. It is formed on patinated light grey flint. It has covering, scaled low-angle retouch forming the triangular blade and obliquely ended tang. The barbs are missing; one break is a patinated snap across the barb. The other has signs of retouch over the broken area where the barb would have projected, so may have only ever had one barb, or was broken and reworked. The arrowhead is 20.2mm long, 14.7mm wide and 3.3mm thick. 0.79g.

Object type: CORE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint core of probable Bronze Age date, c. 2500-1500 BC. The core is sub-rectangular in plan, demonstrating removals from both faces and sides with little apparent care for flake direction and forethought of detachment. Heavily worked down (probably representing the reason for its discard), it is now patinated a yellowy grey colour with some iron staining visible on its surfaces. Preserved in relatively fresh condition, the core measures 71.43mm in length down its longest axis, c. 56.14mm wide at its widest point and 30.8mm thick at its midpoint. It weighs 159.6g.

County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An Early Bronze Age barbed and tanged flint arrowhead (c. 2500 BC- c. 1500 BC). This arrowhead has been made on a tertiary flake. It is broadly sub-triangular in plan and lentoid in cross-section. The arrowhead has been knapped using both direct and indirect percussion techniques. Both faces have received about the same amount of knapping. The tang has a square end and is a sub-square in plan, roughly pointed-oval in cross-section. Each barb now has a square end but they seem to have been truncated. The ends of the barbs are now flat and smooth. The arrowhead has a dull white patina …

County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A roughly crescent shaped secondary flake, mottled grey/brown in colour. The flake is probably formed on a piece of secondary debitage. There is around 70% cortex remaining on the dorsal side. The area of the flake covered in cortex has a sub-oval indentation measuring roughly 18mm x 8mm. The remaining area of the dorsal side is covered with extensive, scaled, low angle flaking, forming a side scraper on the left mesal. The ventral face is smooth with a low bulb of percussion, with ripple lines emanating from it. The scraper is probably dated to the early to middle Bronze Age. Lengt…

Toffee coloured flint with cortex debitage. A thick flake with a tiny striking platform and a large bulb of percussion at one end of its ventral surface. A possible run of short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect occurs on one part of one side, where the cortex has been trimmed. The finder kindly suggests this may be of Mesolithic or even Palaeolithic date, but the tint of the flint does not appear altered by the passage of the significant period this would require so this reporter would favour a more recent date. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 43.…

Incomplete flint barbed and tanged arrowhead dating from the Beaker period (c.2500-1500 BC). The arrowhead is triangular in plan: 27 mm in length, 23.5 mm in width at the base, 4 mm thick and weighs 2.4 g. The pointed tip is missing. Both faces have been thinned by the removal of many small, shallow, invasive pressure-flakes. Two notches have been formed by pressure flaking at the base of the triangle, to form the tang and two barbs, and the two notches carefully shaped by further pressure flaking. The two barbs have obliquely shaped ends and the tang is square, placing the arrowhead w…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A thumbnail scraper of later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2300 -1800BC). The scraper is formed on a fine, mid brown (toffee like) coloured good quality, tertiary oval shaped flake of flint. The ventral face shows the bulb and point of percussion as well as conchoidal ripples and bulbar scar; this shows that the flake was struck from a prepared striking platform. The dorsal face has several broad removals / flake facets most probably caused by other flakes being removed for tool production. Around the edges are areas of dense neat regular well applied secondary retouch . This has…

Grey-brown flint with cortex, debitage. A thick flake with a broad flake struck from its dorsal side and with broad parallel flakes struck from its convex ventral surface. Two or three draughts of angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect appear at one end of the object, and the same edge is lightly battered. The form of the flint recalls that of a naturally formed pot lid fracture, though this may have been adapted; improvised or casual use may be represented. Suggested date: Bronze Age, 2350-800 BC. Length: 53.1mm, Width: 37.8mm, Thickness: 14.4mm, Weight: 28.87gms
