Record ID: DEV-45CEA1
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint scraper of probable Neolithic or Bronze Age date, c. 4000-800 BC. A Broadly piriform secondary flake of black/brown flint, triangular in cross section and with c. 10% of the dorsal face covered with cortex at the distal end. Two parallel removal scars survive on the dorsal face. A relatively pronounced bulb of percussion is present at the proximal end of the ventral face, the striking platform has been worked away by a series of crude, abruptly angled hinged removals. There is a central, longitudinally aligned hinged removal at the proximal end of the dorsal face, possibly thin…

Neolithic (Early) to Bronze Age (Later) notched piece, 31mm long, 12mm wide, 5mm thick and 1.8g in weight. Made on a small broken blade on mid brown translucent flint that has started to darken through patination. Notched area is on the right lateral edge near the proximal end. The dorsal face retains some cortex and the butt was prepared, although it looks as though this piece was soft hammer struck. .

Neolithic (Early) to Bronze Age (Later) side-scraper, 42mm long, 18mm wide, 12mm thick and 10.1g in weight. Made on a flake struck from a river pebble, the flint was once semi-translucent caramel brown but the mid grey patina that is covering much of the flake has turned it opaque. Small area of retouch along the left lateral edge on the ventral face. Retouch is quite abrupt and almost serated.

Mesolithic (Early) to Neolithic (Later) retouched blade, 38mm long, 13mm wide, 4mm thick and 2.5g in weight. The dorsal face of this piece is mostly cortical. A small area on the right lateral edge has been semi-abruptly retouched on the dorsal face wheareas there is a notch on the ventral face of the left lateral edge. The proximal end displays some evidence for small unidirectional removals that presumably were for the purpose of preparation. The flint is translucent light caramel brown that has turned mostly grey through patination.

Neolithic (Early) to Neolithic (Later) double side-scraper, 65mm long, 25mm wide, 13mm thick and 22.1g in weight. Poor quality opaque chert that is light grey in colour with many impurities. Both lateral edges has been semi-abruptly retouched near the proximal end presumable because it was the thinnest area.

Palaeolithic (Middle) to Mesolithic (Later) naturally backed knife, 66mm long, 25mm wide, 17mm thick and 29.5g in weight. Struck from a large core that has been worked orthogonally. The cutting edge is unmodified whereas the opposing lateral edge has recieved some semi-abrupt retouch. The right lateral edge does retain most of its cortex. The dorsal face otherwise shows the evidence for orthogonal working. The flint is semi-translucent caramel brown with areas of opaque light brown patination.

A Late Neolithic/ Early Bronze Age (2500 BC - 1500 BC) flint end-scraper, measuring 44.7x50.6x13.3mm and weighing 35.94g. The flint is 100% heavily patinated white with spots of orange iron staining to both faces. A small area of recent damage at the right dorsal edge shows the unpatinated-flint to be a dark grey/ black in colour. The object has short, scaled, abrupt retouch to the bulbous right-hand edge of the wide dorsal distal end; otherwise there is lighter and shorter scaled semi-abrupt retouch along this edge. The right dorsal edge has slightly longer, scaled semi-abrupt retouch.
