Record ID: SF-473274
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A virtually complete knapped flint scraper of probable Late Neolithic to Middle Bronze Age date, c. 3000-1500 BC. It is broadly oval in plan and plano-convex in section, manufactured on a tertiary flake of dark blackish flint which now demonstrates a speckled bluish patina in places interspersed with post-depositional iron staining. The platform is plain and relatively small, with a medium sized step fracture directly below it on the dorsal surface. The lateral and distal edges of the scraper demonstrate secondary modification in the form of directly applied scalar retouch which create…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Mottled toffee-coloured iron-stained flint, probably collected from the East Coast; laurel leaf knife. A large flat oval flake of lentoid section with a single dished negative pot lid fracture on the dorsal side and with a nearly flat ventral surface. Short angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows most of the curved edge. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect follows about one third of the edge, along part of one side and the adjoining curved end, producing a robust cutting edge. The flake used to make the knife appears to have been incorp…

Toffee coloured brown flint knife fragment. A flake with large broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by hard hammer strike and with a rippled ventral surface with a positive hinged fracture towards one end. Short abrupt retouch executed from the ventraol aspect follows opposed long edges; the appearance of further retouch executed, as is more usual, from the dorsal aspect probably arises from a combination of light battering and fortuitous edge-on impacts. The object is broken at one end, probably recently. A broad curved flake detached from one edge of the dorsal side may also repr…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark chocolate brown flint of good quality; scraper fragment. A thick flake with two broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a flat and faintly rippled ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the curving edge, its extent now limited by a probably recent break towards the butt end of the scraper. The occasional appearance of this distinctive non-local material is associated with early flint work of high quality; examples have been reported from the East Coast and the district of West Lindsey. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500 BC. …

Grey flint with cortex debitage. A small chunk of flint with broad and narrow flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a slightly concave ventral surface. Angled retouch executed from the ventral aspect follows one straight edge; the appearance of further working is probably the result of fortuitous edge-on impacts.

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A single piece of secondary flint debitage of unknown date, probably late Neolithic to Bronze Age. A striking platform and point of percussion are visibly present on this flake. The pronounced bulb of percussion and well defined conchoidal ripple marks indicate hard hammer production. The dorsal side has a pronounced concave recess at the proximal end indicating that a flake had been removed before this one. Recortication has started on the striking platform, ventral and dorsal face. This recortication is present within the concave proximal zone on the dorsal side, and distal c. two-t…

Large secondary hard hammer struck end scraper, of unpatinated mottled grey flint with rairly irregular steep retouch to the distal end forming the scraping edge, the flake blank is struck from a single platform core with the flake scars to the dorsal face all orientated in the same direction; from the platform to the distal end, on one side these have hinged several times. Due to its size an Early Neolithic date is likely. 4,000 to 3001 BC.

A large flint waste flake or 'debitage' of uncertain date, but likely Neolithic to Bronze Age c.4000 - 1000BC Description: The flake is a later removal and maybe a core rejuvenation flake with one side having had a number of long thin blade like flakes removed while the reverse having none and a hinge fracture at the top.

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Thermally (frost) fracture, a "potlid" with thin, weathered cortex to the dorsal face, steeply retouched by hard hammer percussion along both edges and the "distal" end to form a scraper. The flint is patinated pale grey and mid grey mottles with a white, coarse inclusion to the ventral face, fine frost cracks run throughout the flint, although they seem to be quite stable. Date is uncertian, but this piece may be of late prehistoric origin, most scrapers made from a frost fractures are late, though the fine cracks may indicate a much earlier date.
