County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A tertiary flint scraper. This flint has a subtriangular cross-section with a longitudinal mid ridge along one surface. The opposite side has evidence of a shallow bulb or percussion and very shallow S-shaped profile indicative of soft hammer working. All surfaces are heavily recorticated except for the areas of retouch suggesting that these are evidence of more recent reworking. It is possible that this piece of flint initially broke and was debitage during blade production and then later reused. The retouch is present on the two longitudinal opposite edges. This retouch is short, sc…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A primary flint, very late and very crudely made, scraper. A large inclusion occupies approximately half of the inner surface of the flint, which seems to have two hinge fractures along two edges. The most obvious of these has an abrupt near vertical angle although this may account for later damage. The other possible hinge fracture, if it is such, is much more subtle running along the edge of the flint. However this may just be how the flint has fractured at a shallow, very low angle between the flint and cortex. The opposite edge has short scaled abrupt retouch. Possibly a reutilise…

A tertiary flint, late, scraper. This piece of flint is a pale orangey-brown suggesting that it had been subjected to iron staining and a pale grey shows through on the areas of retouch. The retouch is short, scaled and abrupt. A fragment of fossil or shell impression is present on one side of this object. Weight is 10.43g, length is 44.3mm, width is 34.0mm and thickness is 10.3mm. The utililisation of natural flints is a feature of late flint industries. Working note: scraper 3. Finder's reference: A2.

A flint coarse retouched flake probably dating to the later Bronze Age. The object is triangular in cross-section with the remains of cortex on one side of the dorsal face. At the proximal end is a large triangular striking platform while a small (possibly accidental) triangular platform is at the distal end. Along the long edge the retouch is short, sub-parallel and at a low angle. A small amount of retouch is also on the opposite edge where the cortex has been removed. It is also short, sub-parallel and low angled. The flint has a dark grey cortex and a toffee brown to light cream m…

A complete knapped lithic implement of Bronze Age date, circa 2500 - 1500BC. The implement is a button scraper formed from a secondary flake which is ovate in plan and D-shaped in section. The ventral surface is smooth with no bulb of percussion or striking platform remaining. The dorsal surface has been extensively worked and displays long, abrupt, parallel retouch around the distal end. The flint is a chalky white colour. The implement is 22.2mm long, 18.2mm wide, 8.3mm thick and weighs 3.5g. Scrapers are fairly ubiquitous throughout prehistory and are generally less chronolog…

County: Lincolnshire

Dark Grey Flint knife. Oval knife with abrupt hard hammer working from various directions covering both sides. There is a suggestion of battering along one edge of what may have been the dorsal aspect, to judge from the curved profile of the flake. Dr Kevin Leahy kindly suggests that the low angle retouch should suggest the identification of this object as a knife, rather than a scraper, which was the initial suggestion advanced by this reporter. Suggested date: Bronze Age, 2350-800 BC. Length: 53.1mm, Width: 33.0mm, Thickness: 13.1mm, Weight: 24.14gms.

Mottled grey Flint with cortex at edge Knife. Oval flake with long broad parallel flake removal scars on its dorsal side, and with broader scars on the ventral, the latter probably struck from the other end but in both cases with prominent rippling. Together these conferred a sharp cutting edge. Suggested date: Bronze Age, 2350-801. Length: 51.8mm, Width: 36.5mm, Thickness: 8.2mm, Weight: 17.63gms.

Probably an early Bronze Age anvil stone dating to between c2100 and c1500 BC.. It reminiscent of the Early Bronze Age anvil stones from a smiths grave at Lunteren in the Netherlands; see http://1501bc.com/page/rijks_museum_oudheden/0214038.JPG. It is incredibly heavy for its size (too heavy for the finds scales) and shows evidence of continual impacts that appear deliberately placed. It is as likely that the anvil was used in the production of gold items, as well as copper alloy objects. The iron staining on the face of the stone is probably due to a close encounter with a plough at …

Possibly part of a late Bronze Age dish-shaped ingot dating 1150 to 800BC. The fragment is sub-cuboid in shape with a rough area on one surface which could be where the cast bronze was open to the air in the mold. The patina is a light green and constant with a Bronze Age date. Similar to KENT-605B16, SWYOR-9226F6, and in a hoard KENT-0F86A5 on the database. The length is 78mm, 60mm wide and 35mm in thickness and the weight was too heavy for the scales.

Unusual object that remains unidentified but could perhaps be a toggle for fastening clothing. The toggle is broadly circular in section, cylindrical in plan with tapering ends and a hole possibly for an attachment loop near one terminal. This object is difficult to date but it could be Late Iron Age - Roman 300BC - 410AD or even later. The object shares some similarities with LANCUM-3D1943 The length is 36mm, and the width is 10mm.

A knapped lithic implement of early Bronze Age date. The implement is roughly figure of eight-shaped in plan with an irregular plano-convex section. Evidence of knapping is only present in one area of the implement where a semi-circular notch has been created with steep sides which taper to form a sharp edge. The limited knapping suggests this piece was a naturally occurring flint with the notch removed for a function. The flint is a mid whitish-brown colour with no evidence of cortex re-growth. The implement is 66.2mm long, 37.6mm wide, 15.5mm thick and weighs 36.1g.
