Record ID: WILT-0736E4
Object type: GUNFLINT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A post-medieval/modern gunflint from a flintlock musket. The flint is broadly rectangular in plan. The ventral surface is smooth and relatively flat; the strikes come in at an angle; the bulb of percussion is absent. The dorsal face is bevelled on all sides. The flint has a white patina. The flintlock was introduced in the middle of the 16th century but it was not until the reign of William III that the flintlock became the main regulation firearm for the British Army. The knapped flint was used within the musket mechanism to produce a spark and would last between 20-25 shots bef…

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…

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint bladelet with a bulb of percussion visible at one shorter end and a hinge fracture at the other; it is rounded at this latter end. The flint is a light grey colour with some patches of iron staining. There are two removals down the length of the flake on the dorsal face while the ventral face is smooth, as struck. The edges are serrated, but no obvious human retouch can be discerned. The object has the following dimensions: Weight: 3.24g, Length: 40.33mm, Width: 18.86mm, Thickness: 3.51mm. It can be dated broadly from the Mesolithic to Neolithic.

Object type: END SCRAPER
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: West Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An end scraper. There is long, parallel, abrupt retouch around the proximal end on the ventral face, removing the striking platform. There may also have been very short, abrupt retouch on the distal end to produce an irregular outline, although this may also be due to natural fracture when the flake was sruck from the core. Unlike with thumbnail or round scrapers the retouch covers only a small part of the circumference. The scraper was made on a secondary flake, c.5% cortex remains, with a prominent bulb of percussion. The flint is pale grey with mottled lighter grey inclusions. The s…

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Knapped flint barbed and tanged arrowhead dating from the Late Neolithic to Middle Bronze Age (c. 2500 BC - c.1150 BC). The arrowhead is bifacially worked and an elongated triangle in plan, with two notches in the base, between a central tang and a barb at either side. The point has broken away. One barb has also been lost, the other is small with a rounded end. The tang is relatively large and now rectangular as the end has broken away. The arrowhead has invasive shallow semi-parallel retouch on both faces. The flint is darkk brown to grey. It is 31.4 mm long, 5.7mm thick; it weighs …

Knapped flint tertiary blade struck off a prepared platform with possibly retouch at one end. The blade is long, trapizoid in section rising to triangular at the distal end and slightly curved in profile. The ventral face has a bulb of percussion at one end, percussion waves and several damage scars down the right and left edges. At the right edge of the distla end on the ventral face is a short length of regular short semi abrupt chipping, probably retouch, the distal tip beyond is broken.

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete tertiary retouched flake of Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. The flake has a visible bulb of percussion on the ventral face which has been partially removed by the very large bulbar scar due to a flaw in the flint. The distal end has snapped, as has the proximal right corner. There is short scalar abrupt retouch at the proximal end of the left edge and along the remaining part of the right edge of the dorsal face. Towards the centre of the left edge the retouch becomes longer and semi-abrupt. The flint is light-mid grey in colour.
