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: SOCKETED AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a Late Bronze Age copper-alloy socketed axehead (c. 1000 BC-c. 800 BC). This fragment is the lower part of the expanded blade and forms the cutting edge. It has been cut or broken just above the base of the socket. The cutting edge is curved convex (crescent shaped) and is very sharp. In plan, the sides flare out to the blade tips and in side view it is triangular. Both sides have a very faint casting seam which may have been hammered down. The remnant of the socket is about 11.0mm deep. This axehead is green with darker green corrosion products. It has patches of a dar…

County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age scraper, dating to the period 2500 BC-1500 BC. It is a primary flake, with almost all of the dorsal face covered by the light brown cortex, and broadly triangular in shape. This cortex is light brown in colour, and all that remains of the dorsal face aside from the cortex is a dark brown-grey. In total, the scraper measures 54.94mm in length, 39.22mm wide and 9.35mm thick. There is possibly some short, scaled retouching on the right hand edge of the dorsal face. The ventral face is quite smooth, with no bulb of percussion, and is a dark grey-brown i…
