    • Manufacture: Knapped/flaked

  • Image not taken

Record ID: SF-268B06
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint end scraper of probable Late Neolithic to Middle Bronze Age date, c. 3000-1500 BC. Manufactured on a tertiary flake of translucent brownish fine-grained flint with only a small patch of cortex on its dorsal surface, the support has had its proximal end intentionally removed. The scraper is effectively horseshoe shaped, a single dorsal arrise visible and secondary working (in the form of directly applied parallel long removals) creating a convex working edge at the distal end of the piece. Preserved in fresh condition it measures 38.59mm in length down its axis …

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A tertiary flake of probable late Mesolithic date, 7000 - 4000BC. The flake is sub-rectangular in plan and section. There are two parallel flakes removed from the dorsal face, and there is very short, parallel, abrupt retouch to both edges. Retouch at the distil end has formed two notches, possibly for working arrow shafts. The flake is pale mottled grey and translucent. Length: 29.0mm, Width: 19.1mm, and Thickness: 3.0mm. Weight: 2.3g.

County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probable microlith of Mesolithic date, 9000- 4000 BC. The flake is pale mottled grey in colour, and sub-rectangular in plan.

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An Early Bronze Age barbed and tanged flint arrowhead (c. 2500 BC- c. 1500 BC). This arrowhead has been made on a tertiary flake. It is broadly sub-triangular in plan and lentoid in cross-section. The arrowhead has been knapped using both direct and indirect percussion techniques. Both faces have received about the same amount of knapping. The tang has a square end and is a sub-square in plan, roughly pointed-oval in cross-section. Each barb now has a square end but they seem to have been truncated. The ends of the barbs are now flat and smooth. The arrowhead has a dull white patina …

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A roughly crescent shaped secondary flake, mottled grey/brown in colour. The flake is probably formed on a piece of secondary debitage. There is around 70% cortex remaining on the dorsal side. The area of the flake covered in cortex has a sub-oval indentation measuring roughly 18mm x 8mm. The remaining area of the dorsal side is covered with extensive, scaled, low angle flaking, forming a side scraper on the left mesal. The ventral face is smooth with a low bulb of percussion, with ripple lines emanating from it. The scraper is probably dated to the early to middle Bronze Age. Lengt…

Flint debitage. An elongated flake or bladelet with long narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with an undulating ventral surface; the appearance is of a light twist. Th surface bears a dense creamy patina overall, suggesting the object has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC.

Flint adze fragment. A sub-triangular chunk of broad lentoid section with, initially, two broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by hard hammer strike, and with an uneven ventral surface. Covering angled scalar retouch was carried across the dorsal surface, and a few comparable drafts appear on the ventral side. Broken at its broader end, probably recently. Patches of iron staining appear on the worked surfaces. The surface overall is a dull buff tint, possibly a deep patina arising from prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. L…

Toffee coloured flint with cortex possible debitage, as kindly identified by the finder. A large irregular flake with a broad flake removal scar on its dorsal side and an angled striking platform adjacent to a bulbar ventral surface. The opposite, straight, end may be trimmed by short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect. The surface is weathered and battered. This reporter would welcome better-informed comment than his own on this object. Suggested date: possibly Middle Palaeolithic, 150,000-40,000 BC Length: 67.2mm, Width: 46mm, Thickness: 16.3mm, Weight: 45.16gms

County: Lincolnshire

Toffee coloured flint with cortex debitage. A thick flake with a tiny striking platform and a large bulb of percussion at one end of its ventral surface. A possible run of short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect occurs on one part of one side, where the cortex has been trimmed. The finder kindly suggests this may be of Mesolithic or even Palaeolithic date, but the tint of the flint does not appear altered by the passage of the significant period this would require so this reporter would favour a more recent date. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 43.…

Toffee coloured and cream flint with cortex; scraper. A thick oval flake with cortex trimmed by a single hard hammer strike and with a slightly bulbar ventral surface. Abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows its curved edge; the small striking platform lies at the butt end. Possibly chipped in antiquity, with the resultant loss of part of one side; the broken surface now bears dense creamy patina.

Grey flint plano-convex knife, as kindly identified by the finder. An oval flake with broad and narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side by unidirectional working, and with a flat to slightly concave ventral surface. The object bears a positive hinge fracture at one end. A thick creamy patina has developed overall, indicating the object has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment, and it has been glossed, perhaps by wind-blown sand, and subsequently chipped along its edges post-deposition. A single chip revealing the tint of the flint is more recent. Suggested …

A waste flake from flint working, 34.9mm in length and with trapezoidal shape. One side demonstrates a bulb of percussion and concentric ripple with a striking surface at the narrow end of the flake. The other side demonstrates flake removal scars from when the flake was part of a core. The wide end of the flake retains a portion of cortex. No retouch or worked edges are evident to suggest the flake being used as a finished tool. Mesolithic to Neolithic.
