Record ID: NMS-9957DD
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary, soft hammer struck small flake of white and grey patinated flint with slight iron stains to both faces, one edge is semi-invasively retouched to form a scraping edge. Due to its similar patination and proximity to NMS-990E2E it is possible that this is of Late (final) Palaeolithic date, though it is of unusually small form.

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Late Upper (final) Palaeolithic semi-hard hammer struck blade with a faceted and isolated platform and only a slight bulge to the bulb of percussion, and a tiny bulbar scar, now white and light grey patinated, with spotty iron stains to both faces. The distal end is finely and invasively retouched to form the scraping edge, and both lateral edges are "bruised" or use-worn. Recent damage to parts of the edges reveal the original colour of the flint was black. 10,000 to 12,000 BC.

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Possible Late (final) Upper Palaeolithic secondary end scraper, hard hammer struck with three impact points to the faceted platform, of differentially patinated black flint, the dorsal face has slight pale patination mostly towards the distal end. The ventral face is patinated light grey, almost white, both faces have spotty iron stains. The extant cortex to the dorsal face is thin and weathered and this edge is recently damaged from platform to the steep retouch of the scraping edge, a few other recently damaged areas along the edges are evident from their lack of patination.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Upper Palaeolithic to late Neolithic flint scraper on large struck flake, 40000 - 2351BC. 69mm in length, 47mm wide and 32mm thick with a weight of 100.9grams. The object has a sub rectangular form and cross section and it has a light grey opaque patina. It has been formed from what was part of a core although this large part of the core has become struck off as there is an extremely large butt on the piece, probably a misdirected blow. The piece has some long almost carinated retouch and has been abraded round the edges.

Palaeolithic (Lower) to Palaeolithic (MIddle)scraper, 48mm long, 64mm wide, 18mm thick and 67.8g in weight. Made on a chert-like material that has turned almost completely dark brownish grey through patination, apart from one small area where the original mid brown colour remains. The piece has been made on a large thick flake of Palaeolithic origin and is lightly retouched along the distal end. Flake scars on the dorsal face indicate parallel flaking methods and the butt shows evidence of preparation.

A flint double ended scraper probably of late Mesolithic to Neolithic date, c.8000BC - 3300BC, an early date as early as the upper later Palaeothic cannot be discounted. Description: The scraper has two rounded ends and two flat perpendicular edges, leaving it irregular in shape. The dorsal face has uneven flaking. The scraping edges are formed from short scaled semi-abrupt retouch and are along each rounded endge and one of the flat eedge opposite the bulb of percussion. The bulb of percussion is very subtle but the bulbar scar is very clear. The flint is a mottled mid-grey with some…

County: Norfolk

Secondary, hard hammer struck scraper, from an unpatinated flake of mottled grey flint with pale grey banding below the cortex, and an iron spot to the dorsal face. Both distal and proximal ends have been steeply retouched to form a double ended scraper. Possibly late (final) Upper Palaeolithic, 12,000 to 10,000 BC, though it could be later, as it is from a single platform core with cortex along one one lateral edge, U Pal scrapers of this type are usually tertiary.

Three flint scrapers probably from the Paleolithic dating to c 450,000-420,000 BC. The flint has cortex on two of the scrapers. All have evidence of the bulb of percussion and concoidal rings on the ventral side. One piece which comprises only core has a number of chipping marks on its dorsal surface. Similarly, one of the scrapers with cortex has evidence of knapping and retouch. The largest scraper has evidence of retouch along one long edge. The patina is yellowish cream cortex with black flecks and the inner core is light khaki brown with inclusions of white and dark brown marks. …

A flint scraper probably from the Paleolithic dating to c 450,000-420,000 BC. The flint has original cortex on the outer side and fresh cortex has developed on the inner surface. There are also small areas where the cortex may have been removed at a later date. There are also pits on the outer dorsal surface which may have been removed, although this may be the result of natural taphonomic processes. The inner ventral surface has evidence of a bulb of percussion with concoidal rings. There appears to be evidence of a flattened area and light retouch around the dorsal edge of the scrape…

A incomplete possibly Late Paleolithic uncertain tool - possible a knife or scraper dating from circa 100,000 to 10,000 BC.. The tool is sub-ovular in plan with a straight edge on one end - possibly a break. The dorsal surface has a roughly central ridge curving to the left at the rounded end, with an inverted y-shaped ridge at the straight end. The ventral surface is smooth, with the bulb of percussion at the straight end. The edges appear retouched to all except the straight (broken) end. The colour is mainly white with grey and brown marks, and it is not opaque. The object is 72.02m…

The edges appear retouched to all except the cortex. The colour is mainly white with red andgrey marks and a red oval area runs along the central ridge, and it is not opaque.

A large possible lower-middle Palaeolithic flint scraper. Description: The object is formed from an irregular flint flake triangular in cross-section. The dorsal face is quite high which helps form this cross section. The bulb of percussion on the reverse is fairly shallow although the discoidal rippling is very pronounced. There is a removal flake across where the bulb of percussion which suggest a level of shaping. The wide outside edge of the tool appears to be the working edge with short scaled abrupt retouch along a small section abutting the striking platform end. The rest of…

A complete Scraper/Blade of Upper Palaeolithic to Mesolithic date (250,000-5,500 BC). The object is a probable Long Blade of the long blade industries of Southern and eastern England. This industry is attributed to the transition from Pleistocene to Holocene. The object is sub-rectangular in plan and concavo-convex in section. The dorsal surface is convex and contains five predominant negative scars. Both the proximal and distal ends are blunted with the proximal end having one large deep negative scar. The left hand distal edge has a minor amount of fine low angle retouch. The ventra…

A large probable scraper of lower to middle Palaeolithic date, probably lat middle Palaeolithic c.60,000BC-40,000BC, which has been subsequently reworked and modified at a latter date. Description: The tool has a wide curved scraper or crude chopper edge formed from short to invasive stepped semi-abrupt retouch mostly from the dorsal face (upper/front). In plan the side run diagonally inwards to a shorter straight edge giving it an overall shape of a modern axehead in plan. The upper diagonal sides has been reworked form both faces to create a point with invasive scaled semi-abrupt…

An irregular flint scraper of uncertain date, possibly late Middle Palaeolithic (c.60,000-40,000 BC). Description: The scraper is formed from a single flaked piece of lint and irregularly shaped. It is quite thick and has cortex is present on the right edge of the scraper. There is flaking across both sides and there is no clear ventral or dorsal face. The bulb of percussion and conchoidal scarring (rippling) is quite obscured and variable.
