Record ID: WILT-1884E6
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A late Neolithic to early Bronze Age thumbnail scraper dating to c 2500-1500 BC. It is likely to be a tertiary flake as there does not appear to be any evidence of the original cortex, although the scraper is now completely recorticated and the patina is creamy white. It is broadly D-shaped. There is evidence of the bulb of percussion and concoidal rings on the ventral face. Around the curve of the dorsal face, there is short, sub-parallel, semi-abrupt retouch. The thumbnail scraper weighs 4.96g measuring 22.7mm in length, 28.32mm in width and 9.31mm in thickness.

A flint scraper probably from the Paleolithic dating to c 450,000-420,000 BC. The flint has original cortex on the outer side and fresh cortex has developed on the inner surface. There are also small areas where the cortex may have been removed at a later date. There are also pits on the outer dorsal surface which may have been removed, although this may be the result of natural taphonomic processes. The inner ventral surface has evidence of a bulb of percussion with concoidal rings. There appears to be evidence of a flattened area and light retouch around the dorsal edge of the scrape…

A retouched flint blade dating to the period 4000-3501 BC. The impliment is lenticular in shape but is missing a point. The flint is covered with retouching. The implement exhibits sub-parallel, low angle retouch on both faces along with some scaled retouch along both mesal edges. On the ventral surface, the bulb of percussion is missing and some concoidal rings are just visible. The narrow end of the blade may have broken or it may have been worn into a straight, smooth curve from the ventral to distal surfaces. The flint is a light greyish beige colour and is translucent at one e…

A flint blade probably of Early Neolithic date (4000 - 3000 BC). The flint is sub-rectangular in plan with a curving long edge of retouch. In section the flint is thin and is fairly flat on its ventral face and rises to a sharp ridge on its dorsal face. The flint has a layer of opaque material over it and a layer of cortex along one of the long edges of the blade. There are areas of light orangey brown inclusions in the flint. There is no evidence of retouch on the ventral face. On the dorsal face, there is evidence of retouch where a long flake has been removed to create a ridge alon…

A late Mesolithic flint bladelet dating to the period c. 7000 - 4001 BC. The bladelet is sub-rectangular in plan with a slight curve along the length of the blade and a diagonal flaw across both sides of the blade. The dorsal surface exhibits three negative flake removal scars with two smaller negative flake removal scars which terminate at the diagonal flaw. The ventral surface retains a small bulb of percussion, indicating manufacture by soft-hammer striking. The flint is mottled mid - light grey in colour. There is some evidence of short, abrupt, scaled retouch along both sides.

A flint possible side-and-end scraper of Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date (c. 4000 - 1600 BC). The scraper is struck off a tertiary flake and displays no remaining cortex, although there are off-white inclusions. The dorsal surface exhibits one negative flake scar at a right angle to the striking platform, indicating that the flake may have been struck off a multiple platform core. The scraper exhibits short scaled semi-abrupt retouch along the mesal and distal edges. The other mesel edge does not exhibit any retouch and appears to have been broken off. The scraper exhibits a large …
