Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Gloucestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Late Neolithic to Bronze Age flint scraper, probably dating to c. 3,300-800 BC. A tertiary flake of mottled beige-grey flint, with one surviving striking platform and relatively pronounced bulb of percussion, without a bulbar scar. The dorsal face exhibits a series of sub-parallel removals, all struck from the same platform as the overall flake removal, with pronounced conchoidal ripple marks. The distal end of the dorsdal face exhibits short, abrupt, stepped retouch. Length 41.1mm; width 44.7mm; thickness 11.1mm; weight 23.83g. It is difficult to date a single undignostic flint t…

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.

Three pieces of flint debitage which may have been used as simple scrapers possibly dating to the late Bronze Age or early Iron Age tentatively dated to c 1100-600 BC. 1 - The largest piece weighs 29.32g and measures 53.65mm in length, 47.35mm in width and 14.4mm in thickness. There is evidence of a bulb of percussion and concoidal rings. There is some evidence of crude retouch along one edge.

A complete flint axehead of late Neolithic date BC 3500-2100 with a polished tip. The axehead is drop shape in plan and ovate in section. The dorsal surface is invasively flaked across the entire surface. The proximal edge is ground and polished to create a precise cutting edge, there is some slight notching to the polished aspect of the edge. The distal end tapers into a narrowed profile, the end is abruptly blunted. The ventral surface is unflaked being the cortex. The blade has been polished, the remainder of the axehead has not. It is 129.12mm in length and 49.66mm in width. It we…

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

An incomplete Neolithic polished axehead, dating to the period 3500 BC- 2200 BC. This appears to be the tip and most of the body, but as the cutting edge has broken off it is unclear how much of this is the original axehead. What remains is broadly oblong in shape, measuring 111.26mm in length, 52.92mm wide and 33.22mm thick, though it tapers to 7.33mm at the tip. In colour, the axehead is creamy-white, with patches of mid grey and flecks of light brown. The axehead is very smooth, heavily polished, with an abrupt break at the bottom, and small, scaled retouch or chipping on the left …

An incomplete Neolithic polished axehead, dating to the period 3500 BC- 2200 BC which has been reused as a core. It does not appear to be the butt nor the tip of the axehead, but an uncertain portion of the body.

A possible Mesolithic to Neolithic fabricator, dating to the period 8000 BC- 1000 BC. It is oblong in shape, measuring 80.18mm in length and 24.39mm at maximum width, though it tapers to a point at either end. The thickness is 15.44mm. It is a secondary flake, as a small portion (no more than 10%) of the cortex survives on the dorsal face at the bottom. From the cortex, a light grey colour, the surrounding area is a dark grey in colour, though this lightens as the fabricator continues. The retouch is covering, and is scaled and low angle. The ventral face is completely smooth, and a li…
