Record ID: DEV-754CC7
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Flint scraper of probable Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date, c. 3,300-1,600BC, exhibiting retouch resembling a plano-convex knife. A secondary flake of mottled grey-brown flint, with a small area of cortex surviving at one end (c. <5%), the proximal end has been worked away, but it is likely that the length of the surviving tool is perpendicular to the length of the original flake. The flint is bifacially worked, broadly plano-convex in cross-section, and exhibiting invasive retouch, abrupt and sub-parallel on the left side and semi-abrupt and sub-parallel/scalar on the righ…

County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint barbed and tanged arrowhead dating form the Middle Bronze Age (2150 - 1500 BC). Description: Similar to the Pick Rudge Farm type. The arrow is triangular in shape with two notches chiped into the base to seperate the barbs and tang. Both faces have been worked with covering, scaled and low-angle retouch. The arrowhead is a mottled dark to light grey in colour. Dimensions: Height 43.07mm, width 27.44mm, thickness 6.37mm and weight 5.93g.

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Three retouched flint flakes of probable Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date, c. 3,300-1,600BC. 1. A tertiary flake of opaque, slightly mottled, grey-brown flint, with the proximal end worked away, but with relatively diffuse conchoidal ripples present on the ventral face. Two prominent negative removal scars are present on the dorsal face, one narrow and blade-like, the other much broader, probably struck from two separate platforms, one at c. 30 degrees to the other. Short, scalar, low angle retouch is exhibited along the right edge of the dorsal face and left edge of the ventra…

Two flint scrapers of probable Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date, c. 3,300-1,600BC. 1. Secondary flake of pale grey flint, with cortex covering c. 33% of the dorsal face, on the right side of the proximal end. The striking platform survives at the proximal end, with an unscarred, diffuse bulb of percussion on the ventral face. The one surviving prominent negative removal scar on the dorsal face was struck from an opposing platform. The distal end exhibtis short, stepped, semi-abrupt retouch. Length 24.3mm; width 29.0mm; thickness 9.3mm; weight 6.52g. 2. Secondary flake of opaqu…

Two flint scrapers of probable later Neolithic or Bronze Age date, c. 3,300-800BC. 1. A secondary flake of pale grey pebble flint, with cortex surviving on c. 70% of the dorsal face. The proximal end has been lost to a large hinged removal which continues onto the dorsal face, but with pronounced conchoidal ripples present on the ventral face. The distal end of the dorsal face exhibits abrupt, short, scalar retouch which extends slightly onto the right edge. Length 30.8mm; width 22.4mm; thickness 7.1mm; weight 5.02g. 2. A tertiary flake of dark grey-brown flint speckled with pale inc…

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A single flake of flint debitage, of probable prehistoric date. A tertiary flake of translucent brown flint with bands of grey-beige inclusions. A relatively large bulb of percussion survives at the proximal end, with bulbar scar. Abrasion to the dorsal edge of the striking platform would suggest the use of platform preparation. The sub-parallel, negative removal scars on the dorsal face appear to have been struck from th same platform as the overall removal. There is a small patch of white patination at the distal point, suggesting possible reuse of older material. There is no retouch…

An incomplete probable flint knife of probable neolithic date, c.4,000-2,400BC. Worked from a tertiary blade of pale grey, slightly translucent flint,with some iron staining on the ridge scars, missing its distal end to a natural break and with the proximal end worked away. Very diffuse conchoidal ripples present on the ventral face, and with a single blade-like removal on the dorsal face, again with extremely diffuse conchoidal ripples. Either lateral edge of the dorsal face exhibits long, semi-abrupt, scalar retouch. A posible notch has been worked into the right lateral edge at the …

Three flint scrapers of probable Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date, probably dating to c. 3,300-1,600BC. 1. Tertiary flake of mottled pale grey flint, missing the proximal end and bulb of percussion to a natural break, with relatively large, but diffuse conchoidal ripples on the reverse. Abrupt, long, sub-parallel retouch along the distal and left edges of the dorsal face, obscuring the negative removal scars, but which appear to be struck from a different platform to the overall removal. Length 26.7mm; width 29.3mm; thickness 14.5mm; weight 5.90g. 2. Tertiary flake of slightly…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint Scraper of Mesolithic date (9,000-3,450 BC). The object is sub-rectangular in plan and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surface contains one predominant negative scar. The proximal end has been blunted. The distal end tapers to a point. The right hand edge has fine semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is flat. The flint is dark grey in colour. There is no retained cortex and the flake is therefore a tertiary flake. Length: 17.95mm, Width: 8.45mm, Thickness: 3.64mm, Weight: 0.4g.
