Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint thumbnail scraper of Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date. The scraper is struck off a tertiary flake and retains no cortex. The scraper is a rough D shape in plan with a curved distal end which shows medium parallel semi abrupt retouch along the entire edge from the ventral face. The dorsal surface potentially shows at least two directions of knapping one from near he distal end and another from the proximal end. The ventral surface shows no retoutch and is smooth bar two chips at its distal end. Part of the small bulb of percussion is visible as is part of the platform fr…

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint scraper of probable Late Neolithic to Bronze Age date, c. AD 2700-1000. The scraper is worked from a secondary flake of opaque dark grey flint mottled with paler inclusions with a small amount of cortex remaining in the centre of the dorsal face. The flake widens from the proximal to the distal end. A striking platform with a bulb of percussion on the ventral face survives at the proximal end. Negative removal scars from hinged removals from the same platform are present on the dorsal face. The flake is worked unifacially, struck from the ventral face, with relatively long, abr…

Fifty Eight (58) fragments of secondary flint waste / debitage of Neolithic date (3500-2100 BC). All of the flakes are from secondary phase of working / flaking and are a direct result of preparation of flint tools. Most show clear signs of direct hard hammer knapping and the majority have been removed with minimal loss of flint from the nodule / core. The cortex is all mid grey in colour and the majority is chalk derived. The majority of the flint is a light grey through to black colour, although some pieces have milky white surface patina. This collection is from an assemblage of la…

County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Polished stone Axehead of Neolithic date (3,450-2,100 BC). The lithic is polished, the rock type has not been properly identified but may be dolerite or gabbro. The lithic is sub-rectangular in plan, long and narrow with a slightly wider blade end and is bi-convex in section. Both the dorsal and ventral surfaces have multiple negative scars along the blade end possibly due to an attempt to sharpen the blade and or due to post-depositional processes. Length: 132.44mm, Width: 65.91mm, Thickness: 34.32mm, Weight: 380g. The stone is igneous rock, the origin of which is unce…

A complete knapped lithic implement of Neolithic date, circa 4000 - 2300 BC. The implement is a scraper, designed to be held between the thumb and forefinger, formed from a secondary flake which is sub-ovate in plan and D-shaped in section. The ventral surface is smooth and displays a striking platform and prominent bulb of percussion. The dorsal surface retains 10% cortex with long, scaled, semi-abrupt retouch to create the scraping edge. The flint is dark grey colour, with pale mottling on the dorsal surface, and paler and darker mottling on the ventral. Length: 36.8mm, width: 35.1m…

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…

A complete flint Disk Scraper of Neolithic date (3450-2100 BC). The object is sub-ovate in plan and concaveo-convex in section. The dorsal surface contains two predominant negative scars. The proximal and proximal edge has been blunted. The distal, left and right hand edges have semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is concave with three predominant negative scars, two of which are hinged flake removals along the left hand side. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. The flint is cream in colour with light grey inclusions throughout. Length: 54.60mm, Width…

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete flint axehead, possibly part of an unfinished roughout dating to the Neolithic period (c. 4000-2400 BC). The surviving piece is probably part of a broken blade end that is roughly oval in shape with a squared-off edge at the break. Most of the butt end appears to be missing. The surviving blade end is roughly lentoidal in cross-section with a convex curved blade that tapers roughly evenly in width to the blade edge. Neither the blade, edges nor surfaces have any evidence of polishing though there are several patches of cortex, especially towards the broken edge. The flint…

Neolithic - Late Bronze Age flint retouched flake. Struck off a tertiary flake; no cortex remains. The dorsal surface exhibits four concave removal scars. The ventral surface exhibits a small bulb of percussion with bulbar scar and radiating conchoidal ripple marks. The distal end terminates in a transverse break, possibly recent. There is evidence of short, scaled parallel retouch along one mesal edge. The flint is a semi-translucent mottled grey in colour.
