Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A prehistoric, struck or knapped, medium size, worked flint- probable side and end scrapper. Sub-rectangular/oval shape, slightly plano-concave made from a mottled pale grey and white flint. Bulb of percussion has two bulbar scars one either side. There is a medium sized striking platform and feint ripples with two flake beds on the dorsal surface. There appears to be secondary working in two concave sections down one side, struck from the ventral surface and also across the rounded distal surface struck from the dorsal surface. The flint appears to show some wear and has an attractive…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint fabricator of uncertain date, possibly Mesolithic in age c. 9000BC-3300BC Description: The fabricator is formed from a thick ovoid heavily worked tertiary flake. with narrow sides. In cross-section the fabricator is triangular. Retouch on the ventral face is extensive and clearly defined being invasive scaled semi-abrupt. The bulb of percussion is relatively subtle compared with the retouch and may indicate the use of both soft and hard hammers in its production.The flint is heavily mottled grey-white through to some dark grey on the ventral side. Measurements: 68.16mm long, …

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A coarse flint scraper likely dating to the late Bronze Age or Iron age c.1000BC - 0BC . Description: The scraper was produced from a secondary flake, irregularly shaped, although with four sides. The flaking has left substle conchoidal ripples on both sides of the flint and a substantial bulb of percussion on the ventral face. The retouch is formed from short scaled semi-abrupt retouch from the ventral face through the cortex on one edge and scaled long semi-abrupt on the wide edge perpedicular to the cortex edge. This latter retouch may be intended to creat a boring point on the cor…

An incomplete rounded flint scraper likely of Neolithic date (c.4000-2200 BC). Description: The scraper survives in an a irregular shape with a long rounded end and pointed recent break opposite. The flaking on the dorsal and the and conchoidal scarring (rippling) on the ventral face are very pronounced which suggest hard hammer technology. The majority of the edge has short, scaled semi-abrupt retouch struck from the dorsal face, save the long broken edge which is formed by a transverse hinge fracture. The flint is an opaque dark brown with mottled areas of lighter patches. Measur…

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint scraper. A small thick chunk with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with similarly broad flakes struck from a bulbar ventral surface - it might be debated which side was originally which. Short abrupt retouch executed from the ?dorsal aspect follows a curved end opposite a broad butt and striking platform. A misty white p[atina may suggest the object has been exposed to a calcareous environment after its deposition. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 21.4mm, Width: 18.1mm, Thickness: 8.4mm, Weight: 3.79gms

A bifacially flaked flint handaxe of sub-cordate form dating to the Lower Palaeolithic c.500,000-250,000 BC. Description: The handaxe has a rounded butt, wider middle and a rounded pointed cutting end. It has been bifacially worked, with flaking covering both sides, this has been uneven however leaving one side with a deep uneven hinge fracture. In cross-section the handaxe is a pointed oval. The edges are defined by invasive, scaled, angled retouch. The blade edge narrows but not quite to a point but quite thick so is likely sub-cordate. The flint is unpatinated and a dark grey-brown…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Neolithic (4000 - 2,100 BC) flint flaked axehead with possible (old) damage to the butt end. The axehead has an elliptical cross-section, being rather flatter on one face than the other. This face has transverse flake removals behind the cutting edge for c.one third of the length of the axehead. The cutting edge (41.7mm wide) is convex in shape and slightly lop-sided. Otherwise flake removals, to both faces, are from the centre towards the edge. The more convex face has a central ridge of coretex, tapering off to one edge just before the butt-end (21.2x19.3mm). At this point, the but…

Flint possible debitage. A small flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb on the ventral surface, the latter with adjacent striking platform. A dense creamy patina suggests the object has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment, while orange spots may hint at its subsequent incorporation in gravels. Broken in antiquity.

Secondary, hard hammer struck flake, with thin, worn cortex extant. Of slightly brown patinated grey flint, the distal end is retouched to form the scraping edge in the usual manner. The scraper is recently damaged, with semi-invasive flake scars, mostly to the ventral face, being unpatinated.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary, semi-hard hammer struck, and rather thin flake, of largely unpatinated pale grey flint with white, mottled inclusions and faint, small iron oxide staining to parts of both faces. The bulb of percussion is partially removed by a flake removal on the ventral face, struck from the side of the platform. The distal end is steeply retouched to form the scraping edge, and both lateral edges are irregularly retouched. Flake scars to the dorsal face all run the same way as the flake itself, indicating that this piece was struck from a single platform core. Neolithic, possibly early.
