Record ID: SOM-F506CB
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Probably a palaeolithic flint tool reused in the later prehistoric period, possibly as a knife or other cutting tool. The tool is of a dark brown/black flint, rolled and with significant areas of iron staining. At more recent removal scars the flint can be seen to be mottled with cloudy white areas and rare white inclusions. The tool is D-shaped in plan, and with a truncated pointed oval cross section, with the dorsal face being more pronouncedly curved than the ventral. The initial working of the tool is bifacial, with covering, sub-parallel semi-abrupt retouch on the dorsal face …

Object type: BORER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Flint borer, probably Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age, c. 3300-1000 BC. Worked from a tertiary flake of very dark brown/black flint with some grey/brown patches near proximal end. No striking platform survives, with a relatively diffuse bulb of percussion although with a bulbar scar. There are three flake removal scars on the dorsal face, all seemingly blade-like flakes, with two struck from the proximal end, both terminating in hinge fractures, and a third struck at a perpendicular angle, all three have relatively pronounced ripple marks. This last removal appears to have gone w…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Bronze Age or possibly Neolithic chert horseshoe shaped scraper dating to the period c. 2350-800 BC. It has been struck off a secondary flake, as there is between 25-35% of the cortex remaining on the dorsal face and was semi-circular in shape with some damage to one side which has removed one end of the semi-circle. The ventral face has a single large bulb of percussion, with a large bulbar scar. The dorsal surface has three parallel negative flake scars from previous removals of blade like flakes. The curved distal edge has neat short semi-abrupt parallel retouch at the ends close…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An early Bronze Age flint scraper dating to the period c. 2350-1600 BC. It is semi-circular in shape, with 50% of the dorsal face still covered in the origianl cortext and weathered pebble surface. It has been struck off a secondary flake, as it retains >25% of its cortex. The ventral face, has a single low bulb of percussion with a bulbar scar and widely spaced, conchoidal rippple marks, suggesting that the artefact has been soft hammer struck. The curved edge of the dorsal face has evidence of acute short- parallel retouch running along the entire length. The flint is a translucent …

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint retouched flake, possibly a side and end scraper of probable Bronze Age date (c. 2350-800 BC). The piece is struck off a secondary flake with 10% of the cortex remaining on the dorsal face. The piece is broadly triangular in shape, narrowing along its length to a rounded apex. The dorsal surface exhibits three narrow negative flake scars from previous removals. The ventral face has lost it's bulb of percussion to damage but has weakly defined widely spaced conchoidal ripple marks. There is scalar to sub-parallel, semi abrupt short retouch running aroudn the corner of…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Bronze Age retouched flint, probably a scraper dating to the period c. 2350-800 BC. The artefact is struck off a secondary flake, as the dorsal surface retains 25%of its cortex, it is broadly triangular in cross section and ovoid in shape. The bulb of percussion on the ventral face has been almost removed by bulb scarall the edges. All the sides have bad chipping, some later damage but some may be deliberate blunting to make the opposite edges easier to use. The flint is light grey in colour with a series of buff to cream coloured inclusions, and some traces of iron staining fro…

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A collection of six retouched chert flakes of probable Bronze Age date (c.2350-1600 BC) . Two of the flakes, are tertiary retaining no cortex, while the remaining pieces retain between 5 and 25% of their cortex. All of the ventral surfaces, have large bulbs of percussion and strongly defined, closely spaced conchoidal ripple marks idicative of the use of a stone hammer. All the flakes are broad, with evidence of short sub-parallel semi-abrupt retouch running along one mesal edge, probably for use as scrapers. One (top right in photo) has long parallel semi-abrupt retouch around the cu…

Object type: AWL
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Possibly a cast copper alloy awl or tracer. About half the length is square-section (maximum 6mm across) and fairly even in width, the other half is rounded and narows gradually and terminates to a point. there is no obvious waist where the two sections join. 82mm long and weighs 9.4 grams. Plain copper alloy awls are hard to date precisely and this lacks the characteristic central thickening of some Bronze Age examples. Plainer examples are known however and as an artefact they were introduced in the Bronze Age (2150-800 BC) with most being Late Bronze Age in date (1150-800 BC).…

Object type: PLANO CONVEX KNIFE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Worcestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date (c.2700 BC to c.1600 BC) probable plano-convex knife: The knapped flint knife is an elongated pointed sub-oval, with a D-shaped cross section. The dorsal surface has scaled retouch covering the surface with low abrupt re-touch along the edges, thereby forming a convex surface. Along one lateral edge, in the medial section there are two notches, next to each other, which have been formed from the dorsal surface. The ventral surface has some invasive retouch, mainly to reduce the bulb of percussion. One portion of the proximal side edge has low ab…

Record ID: PAS-9B2032
Object type: HOARD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North Somerset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Circumstances of Discovery: On the 12th July, two side-looped palstaves, and one socketed hammer were found. The hoard was found on the side of a ditch on pasture land, in North Somerset. Description: 1. Copper alloy side-looped palstave, Transitional Type. The palstave has high petal shaped flanges, and three ribs which run from the centre of the stop ridge, and end approximately a quarter of the way down the blade in a triangular/trident shape, roughly parallel to the end of the side-loop. The body of the palstave is narrow but widens down the blade eventually flaring at the cut…
