Secondary, hard hammer struck flake, of slightly iron oxide stained pale grey flint, graduating to black from one end to the other. With patination pale streaks to the ventral face only. Unusually, the proximal end is steeply retouched on alternating edges to form the piercer or borer. Neolithic to Bronze Age.

Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy spearhead. Cast socketed side-looped spearhead with an ogival blade with pronounced mid rib, and with a slightly flared socket retaining a partial loop on one side, and a complete loop made up of a flat rhomboid plate or scab of thickness 0.5mm elevated by c.2mm above the body of the socket on the other. The cutting edges of the blade appear lightly bevelled by sharpening, and the extreme point of the tip is lost. Broken in two pieces recently, though probably not actually at the time of its discovery; a ?third part of the socket appears to have been absent at the time of …

County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Flint scraper of probable Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date, c. 3,300-1,600BC, exhibiting retouch resembling a plano-convex knife. A secondary flake of mottled grey-brown flint, with a small area of cortex surviving at one end (c. <5%), the proximal end has been worked away, but it is likely that the length of the surviving tool is perpendicular to the length of the original flake. The flint is bifacially worked, broadly plano-convex in cross-section, and exhibiting invasive retouch, abrupt and sub-parallel on the left side and semi-abrupt and sub-parallel/scalar on the righ…

County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Three retouched flint flakes of probable Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date, c. 3,300-1,600BC. 1. A tertiary flake of opaque, slightly mottled, grey-brown flint, with the proximal end worked away, but with relatively diffuse conchoidal ripples present on the ventral face. Two prominent negative removal scars are present on the dorsal face, one narrow and blade-like, the other much broader, probably struck from two separate platforms, one at c. 30 degrees to the other. Short, scalar, low angle retouch is exhibited along the right edge of the dorsal face and left edge of the ventra…

Two flint scrapers of probable later Neolithic or Bronze Age date, c. 3,300-800BC. 1. A secondary flake of pale grey pebble flint, with cortex surviving on c. 70% of the dorsal face. The proximal end has been lost to a large hinged removal which continues onto the dorsal face, but with pronounced conchoidal ripples present on the ventral face.

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A single flake of flint debitage, of probable prehistoric date. A tertiary flake of translucent brown flint with bands of grey-beige inclusions. A relatively large bulb of percussion survives at the proximal end, with bulbar scar. Abrasion to the dorsal edge of the striking platform would suggest the use of platform preparation. The sub-parallel, negative removal scars on the dorsal face appear to have been struck from th same platform as the overall removal. There is a small patch of white patination at the distal point, suggesting possible reuse of older material. There is no retouch…

Three flint scrapers of probable Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date, probably dating to c. 3,300-1,600BC. 1. Tertiary flake of mottled pale grey flint, missing the proximal end and bulb of percussion to a natural break, with relatively large, but diffuse conchoidal ripples on the reverse. Abrupt, long, sub-parallel retouch along the distal and left edges of the dorsal face, obscuring the negative removal scars, but which appear to be struck from a different platform to the overall removal. Length 26.7mm; width 29.3mm; thickness 14.5mm; weight 5.90g. 2. Tertiary flake of slightly…

County: Leicestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Bronze Age copper alloy flat axe, Length: 94 mm, width: 43 mm, thickness: 11 mm, weight: 164 g. The axe is complete but is pitted with corrosion and has a rectangular form and cross section. It has a very square butt end with tapering sides and it has largely parrallel, slightly flanged edges which only taper outwards slightly before becoming the curved edge to the blade. this tapers gently in width and has a rounded edge with slightly projecting sides. There is no sign of any decoration. Its form is consistent with the Arreton developed flat axehead type, of Early to Middle Bronze …

Record ID: BERK-06AB93
Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a small cast copper alloy socketed spearhead, probably of the side looped type and dating to the early Middle Bronze Age, c.1600-1400BC. Side-looped spearheads are Class IV and date from the early Middle Bronze Age. They are likely to belong to the Acton Park 2, Taunton (Cemmaes) or Penard metalwork assemblages, corresponding to Needham's (1997) Period 5 (1500-1150 BC). Although the size of this object suggests a votive use this is not the case. Other examples of small spearheads are known including GLO-F69302, LANCUM-B72611, LANCUM-0433B7 and SWYOR-3D024E on this dat…

A flake of flint debitage, of uncertain prehistoric date, c. 11,000-1,600BC. A secondary flake of slightly translucent dark grey-brown flint, with c. 25% of the dorsal face covered by a sandy, beige cortex, surviving at the proximal and distal ends.
