Record ID: DEV-D88B09
Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two retouched flakes of a dark grey flint, both of which retain their original white-buff cortex over the distal end. They are both sub-rectangular in shape with numerous flake scars across the two dorsal faces. The larger of the two shows a natural break on the right dorsal margin, where the flint has sheered off forming an almost straight edge, there is an area of long scalar semi-abrupt retouch adjacent to the break, possibly an attaempt to create a notch that was abandoned. The smaller of the two has a distinctive grey spot of patina in the centre of its ventral face and short, sc…

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A light grey brown flint discoidal "thumbnail" scraper of Late Neolithic- Early Bronze Age date, probably dating to c. 2700-1600 BC. There is some evidence of semi-parallel long, semi abrupt retouch, particularly on the left dorsal margin, becoming longer and larger at the proximal end before reverting to finer retouching along the right dorsal margin. The dorsal face is marked by a removal scar, wtih three clear flakes being struck from the proximal end of this face. There is a large bulb of percussion on the ventral face. There are some very small dots of a grey white patina on both …

Object type: CHISEL
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probable core formed unfinished flint chisel of late Neolithic or early Bronze Age date c.4000-1000 BC. Description: The chisel sub-rectangular in shape and pointed oval in cross-section. It has been flaked to shape from a larger piece of flint by covering scaled semi-abrupt flaking. The tool has a hinge fracture at one end is pointed and triangular in plan with cortex still adhering across half of it. It is presumed this is the working end as one would expect the butt end would be flatter. the pointed end has less flaking also, so it is uncertain if this was a working end or if it …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two semi-hard hammer struck flakes, the longer of the two is in unpatinated dark grey flint and is shallowly notched to one lateral edge at the midpoint (51 x 17 x 8.5 mm). The other is of mottled brown and grey slightly patinated flint, also semi-hard hammer struck from an opposed, or multi-platform core with previous flake removals in opposition to each other, both ends of the flake retain platforms. Possible fine use-wear as well as recent damage to the lateral edge with the thinnest angle (43.5 x 21 x 7 mm). Both pieces are Late Prehistoric: Neolithic to Bronze Age.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary, hard hammer struck flake, of unpatinated slightly mottled dark grey flint of good quality, struck from a prepared core with semi-centripetal, over-lapping invasive flake scars to the rather flat dorsal face. The bulb of percussion has been removed transversely by very steep retouch struck from the dorsal face, all edges appear to have been damaged recently. Likely to be a unifacial variation of the discoidal knife. Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age.

Probable Mesolithic to early Bronze Age (8000 - 1000BC) retouched flake: The flint flake is triangular and knapped from a matte mottled light grey flint or chert. The ventral surface does not have a bulb or percussion and conchoidal ripples are not visible. The dorsal surface has a convex surface with abrupt, short, re-touch occurring long one edge. Another edge has two small notches knapped from the dorsal surface. The flake measures 27.73mm long, 23.3mm wide, 7.52mm thick and weighs 3.68g. Retouched flakes are difficult to date as they are present throughout prehistory. Thus, a wi…
