Record ID: SF-10DD98
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint side-and-end-scraper of probable late Neolithic to Bronze Age date (c. 3000-1150 BC). It has been manufactured on a secondary flake of mid brown 'tan' coloured flint, with a pale off-white cortex still covering c. 30% of the dorsal surface. It is broadly circular in plan, demonstrating a sub-lenticular cortical platform with a prominent cone of percussion suggestive of hard-hammer detachment as regarding the original support. Semi-abruptly angled short retouch removals are visible around virtually the entire circumference of the piece (excepting the platform) …

Record ID: LIN-E9737F
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A late Neolithic or early Bronze Age flint end scraper or knife. Only approximately half of the tool survives. The surviving part is the proximal end, and contains a striking platform. A bulb of percussion is visible on the ventral surface. The dorsal surface has a a large flake-removal scar running down the centre, with several narrower others flanking it on both sides. No retouch is visible; this, presumably, was on the end that is now missing. The flint appears to have snapped almost horizontally across the flint. The flint is mottled brown.

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Complete reworked flint flake, possibly a scraper, probably dating from the Neolithic to the Bronze Age (c. 4000 - 801 BC). The flint is discoidal in shape with a smooth unworked ventral face, on which a bulb of percussion is evident. The distal face has semi-abrupt scaled retouch around 70% of the edge. The unworked section of the distal face retains a rough, light grey cortex. Otherwise the flint is a translucent dark grey colour with some mottling. The length of the flint flake is 40.59mm, it is 35.73mm in width and 9.96mm thick. The weight of the flake is 17.58g.

Complete worked flint flake, probably dating from the Neolithic to the Bronze Age (c. 4000 - 801 BC). The flint is irregular in shape, almost oval, and slightly convex. The distal face retains its rough grey-brown cortex save for a section of short, abrupt and scaled retouch along 40% of the edge. The ventral face is unworked and reveals the mottled translucent grey colour of the flint. The worked flake is 40.93mm in length, 36.44mm in width and 11.06mm in thickness. The weight of the flint is 22.32g.

Complete flint arrowhead dating to the period from Early Neolithic to Early Bronze Age (c. 4000 - 1600 BC). The arrowhead has a flat base and convex sides. There is intensive low-angle scaled reworking on one face; there is some very slight scaled reworking on the other face. The flint is a translucent grey with white spots. The arrowhead is 33.75mm in length, 21.20mm at maximum width and 4.04mm at maximum thickness. The weight of the arrowhead is 2.85g.

Complete rounded flint scraper probably dating from the Neolithic (c. 4000 - 2300 BC). The scraper is largely circular in shape with a flat and smooth ventral face and a bulbous distal face that has invasive and scaled semi-abrupt retouch covering approximately 60% of the surface. The flint is translucent and grey in colour, with some small white patches. There is a patch of cortex on the distal face covering the unworked section. There is a small short, scaled and semi-abrupt retouched section along the edge on the ventral face corresponding to the cortex on the distal face. The scrap…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Complete lithic implement formed from a flint flake, probably dating to Neolithic or Bronze Age (c. 4000 - 801 BC). The flake is sub-rectangular in profile, and convex, created from translucent grey flint with white spots. The lithic implement is flatter at one end and more bulbous at the other end. There is long sub-parallel retouch along one long side. Towards the more bulbous end of the flake the retouch becomes more scaled, although one's impression of this is obscured by a patch of recortication. The angle of retouch also becomes steeper towards the more bulbous end, changing from…

Flint blade, probably a blade of later Neolithic or early Bronze Age date, c3000 - 1500BC. The hard hammer tertiary flake is of dark grey flint, roughly triangular in shape, and is shallowly triangular in end-on cross-section. There is a notch at one side which is possibly where it has been reshaped and used as a scraper. It has two facets on the dorsal face, with bifacial low angle retouch which is stepped along the un-notched side, and there is a pronounced bulb of percussion with ripple marks on the ventral face. It measures a maximum of 70.2 mm long by 32.9 mm wide by 8.4 mm thic…

County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete flint blade or blade-like flake of probable Neolithic date, c. AD 4000-2400. A tertiary blade, with no surviving cortex, of a yellow-brown flint. The surviving fragment comrises of the distal end of the flake, and exhibits no clear evidence of retouch. The dorsal face exhibits scars from three previous, parallel blade-like removals. Dimensions: length 22.5mm; width 18.7mm; thickness 2.5mm; weight 1.09g. Dating a single undiagnostic flake with any degree of certainty is impossible, however, in its parallel blade-like removals the fragment exhibits features which would be…
