Record ID: SOM-D14AD9
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Four Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age flint scrapers, probably dating to c. 3,300-1,600BC. 1. A thumbnail scraper worked from a reused primary or secondary flake of grey-brown flint; cortex covers those areas of the dorsal face which do not exhibit retouch, c. 60%. The flake has no clear point or bulb of percussion, with one facet of the dorsal face at the proximal end and the ventral face much more heavily patinated, suggesting the reuse of an older tool. The dorsal face exhibits long, scalar retouch, abrupt along the left edge, becoming semi-abrupt at the distal end and right edg…

Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete probable ovate flint handaxe of Lower Palaeolithic date (500,000 - 180,000 BC), Description: The handaxe is incomplete and has a heavily tumbled surface. It was produced via bifacial working with one face being almost entirely destroyed by damage leaving it rough and pitted. The point is rounded and one edge of the remaining face is incomplete also. The flint is the characteristic light brown-orangey 'toffee' colour with some brown to light brown iron staining typical of Palaeolithic flint finds Measurements:79.65mm long, 57.03mm wide, 20.21mm thick and 84.75g in weight.

Object type: POINT
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible Mousterian point of Middle Palaeolithic date. Description: The point is roughly triangle in plan and cross-section, with an apparently facetted but end although this is heavily worn. The point is formed by long flaked removals with retouch heavily obscured by patination and recortication but appears to be long scaled low angle retouch. The conchoidal rippling on the flaking is substantial on the dorsal face while the bulb and conchoidal rippling on the ventral side is very subtle, indicating mixed technique used in its production. The flint is heavily patinated white with b…

Record ID: KENT-ACE89D
Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint core of probable late Mesolithic date c.8000-4000BC. Description: The core is very roughly conical. The striking has left substantial conchoidal fractures, which indicates use of hard hammer technology. The removals appear to be quite small and vary in size and direction There is a concave side which may relate to an area of lower quality flint with inclusions and faults which may be why the core was abandoned. The flint is heavily mottled grey colour except for the patch of beige cortex. Measurements: 37.9mm high. 36.7mm wide, 34.99mm deep and 31.68g in weight.

County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint borer likely of Neolithic to Bronze Age date. Description: The borer is sub-triangular in plan with three large and dressed striking platform. There is extensive short scaled low angle retouch along the mesal (sides) of the two dorsal faces, with striking coming in from multiple angles, primarily from the dorsal faces on the right side and from the ventral face on the left. The point appears to remain intact although may have been reworked.. The bulb of percussion and the conchoidal fractures are very pronounced which suggests hard hammer striking. The flint is heavily mottled…

County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint scraper likely of late Bronze Age to Iron Age date. Description: The scraper is ovoid, with large sweeping rounded edges. The scraper is triangular in cross-section. The scraping edge is formed from irregular invasive semi-abrupt retouch at the proximal end (striking platform end), this changes towards the distal end to abrupt indicating blunting of the corner. The retouch is struck from the both faces. The dorsal side still has about a third of the mid brown cortex remaining. The ventral side has some working and a substantial teadrop shaped bulb of percussion and substantial…

A flint scraper likely of late Bronze Age to Iron Age date. Description: The scraper is irregularly shaped, with a large sweeping rounded blade edge, a pointed butt and a slightly concave final edge opposite to the blade edge. The scraping edge is formed from irregular invasive semi-abrupt retouch. The reotuch is struck from the dorsal side. The dorsal side still has about a quarter of the mid brown cortex remaining. There is a some crushing on the concave edge through the cortex whcih may be to blunt this edge. The ventral side has no working a modest bulb of percussion and substanti…

A complete knapped gunflint blank from which gunflints for flintlock muskets of Post-Medieval date, c.AD 1600 - 1900, could be produced Description: The flint is broadly rectangular in plan and resembles a stretched pillow shaped gunflint. with tapering sides and a trapezoidal cross-section. There is significant conchoidal rippling on the ventral side. The flint is dark grey with some mottled lighter areas. A probable accidental flake has been removed from the top edge.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete flint end scraper of probable Mesolithic date. Description: The scraper is incomplete and broken across its' body. The scraper remains sub-triangular in shape with a wide sweeping scraping edge. The break appears to be across a significant fault within the flint and may have happen during production. The edge is formed from short scaled semi-abrupt retouch. The rest of the flaking appears to be haphazard and the bulb of percussion is missing due to the break caused by the fault. All retouch and flaking is focused on the dorsal face, other features visible on the ventral …

A single flint probable waste flake (debitage) of uncertain possible prehistoric date. Description: The flake is irregularly shaped but with two long edges and two short edges. It has extensive conchoidal rippling and pronounced bulb of percussion indicating production via hard hammer technology. This flake is likely from the production of a blade or similar object.

A flint borer of uncertain date, probably Mesolithic to early Bronze Age. Description: The borer is thin in cross section but irregfular in plan, One end of the borer is flaked into a point, off centre. The borer point is formed from invasive scaled semi-abrupt retouch. Each of the long side of the borer has retouch alogn their edges defined as short scaled semi-abrupt. This may indicate the tool was multi use with a scraper edge in addition to the boring point The flint is very grey to black in colour. The flaking is very pronounced and likely indicates a hard hammer technique was us…
