A Later Prehistoric flint scraper, probably of Later Bronze Age or Iron Age date, c. 1600-1 BC. A large sub-piriform secondary flake of mottled grey-brown flint, broadly sub-trapezoidal in cross section and retaining a layer of thin, sandy cortex on c. 20% of its dorsal face. A striking platform survives at the proximal end, with a large but unscarred bulb of percussion. A number of negative removal scars are present on the dorsal face, struck from at least four directions; the most prominent being a very large hinged removal struck from 45 degrees to the striking platform.

Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Carmarthenshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Primary / Middle Bronze Age copper-alloy early palstave (1500-1300 BC): The blade of the palstave is sub-trapezoidal in plan with slightly concave sides, flared blade tips, and no side loop. The cutting edge is heavily abraded, as is the surface of the blade so not sure whether it is symmetrical or asymmetrical through use. The sides of the blade are concave in plan, and this curvature stops at the junction of the blade and flange side. In profile the blade is sub-triangular with the widest section being before the stop ridge. There are no traces of a casting seam but this may be due t…

Grey-brown flint plano-convex knife. A small thick straight-sided flake with covering angled scalar retouch and a flat to very slightly concave ventral surface; the scars are mostly parallel, which might be considered a trait of Mesolithic work as might the concave underside, though the object type here is of the Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age. Suggested date: possibly Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 27.0mm, Width: 14.7mm, Thickness: 5.9mm, Weight: 2.94gms

Blue-grey flint possible scraper. A thick flake with a broad flake struck from its dorsal side by hard hammer, and with a prominent bulb on its ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved edge. Misty patina has developed over the struck surfaces, suggesting a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. This is disrupted along part of the edge, possibly by battering or reuse of a discarded tool. The finder kindly suggests an identification as a tortoise scraper. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 36.4mm, Width: 38.6mm…

Grey-brown flint with cortex, possible scraper. A small thick flake with a little cortex trimmed by angled scalar retouch, and a limited zone of short abrupt retouch along one side. A bulb and ripples appear on the ventral surface. Some if not all of the apparent retouch could have arisen from edge-on impacts. Suggested date: possibly Bronze Age, 2350-800 BC.
