Object type: TRANSVERSE ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete transverse or chisel arrowhead, of Late Neolithic dating (3300 BC to 2200 BC). The tang and chisel cutting edge are incomplete, but the rest of the artefact is complete. The arrowhead is triangular in shape, with a flat or rectangular cross section. Conchoidal ripples are present on the ventral (lower) face. Retouch is present along both side edges. The retouch on the left hand edge can be classified as: short, sub parallel, abrupt. The retouch on the right hand edge, is located on the ventral side and can be classified as short, sub parallel, low angle. The arrowh…

Object type: THUMB NAIL SCRAPER
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two struck flint scrapers of Later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2900 - 1800 BC). The scrapers are sub circular in plan and oval in cross section. The dorsal (upper) faces demonstrates a significant number of flake scars, indicating that these pieces have been heavily worked / reworked. The ventral surfaces are smooth with the remains of the bulb of percussion and a few conchoidal ripples. The edges have been damaged by movement in the soil and there are a series of irregular uncontrolled flake scares. One of the scrapers has been broken approximately in half. Both would best be…

A tertiary debitage flake with retouch around the edges, to form an ovate scraper (tool), of Late Neolithic date (2500 BC - 1600 BC). It is sub triangular in plan, and semi-circular in cross section. It consists of a tertiary debitage flake. Along the lower edges, there are signs of regular controlled retouch, indicating reuse as a scraper (tool). The bulb of percussion has been lost, but the point is still presnet, suggesting that it was struck at an angle. Hinge fractures are present at the base, suggesting a low quality flint was used with several natural flaws in the matrix.…

Two struck debitage / waste flakes of mid brown coloured flint that have been retouched to form irregular multi sided scrapers, probably of later Neolithic date (2500 to 2000 BC). One flake is roughly rectangular in plan and demonstrates small facets along the edges of the dorsal (upper) face. This probable scraper has been manufactured from a secondary debitage flake, as there is a small amount (less than 25% of surface area) of cortex (outer rind) present . The dorsal (upper) surface demonstrates a series of flint flake facets in various directions. The ventral (lower) surfce demons…
