Record ID: SOM-1F4073
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
The distal end of a flint scraper of Mesolithic to Early Bronze Age date. The piece is a secondary flake in black translucent flint with some cortex remaining on one side. There is an irregular snap at the proximal end. The aris and scars on the dorsal face suggest repeated blade removals from the same direction. There is invasive, parallel semi-abrupt retouch at the distal end on the dorsal face becoming shallower towards the centre. There is long, scalar semi-abrupt retouch down the right edge on the ventral face. This may suggest the piece was reused or had double use as a side and …

Object type: CORE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two fragments of flint cores of Mesolithic to Bronze Age date. Both appear to have been used to produce blade like pieces with repeated removals from a prepared platform. Due to the size of the pieces these blades, at least the last to be produced were very short. The dark grey piece (13.47g) is sub-conical with cortex left on one side and parallel removals from an upper platform. The beige-brown piece (35.68g) also has cortex left along one side but has a broken with a large section, possibly 50% or more, missing to a impact in the centre of the upper platform. There are the scars for…

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Middle Bronze Age palstave dating to the period c. 1600 - 1400 BC. The butt end exhibits a large notch and traces of damage. The socket is formed by a set of right angled flanges which flank the flat central area and increase in height towards the centre of the blade where they are joined by a horizontal stop ridge, forming an H in cross-section. The flanges are slightly damaged along the topmost edge on both sides, with pitting on the outward facing sides of each flange. Immediately below the stop ridge is a shield shaped depression. The blade has inward-bowing sides which flare towar…

County: Buckinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete copper alloy Middle Bronze Age socketed spearhead of Davis Group 6 type, dating from c. 1500 to 1300 BC, placing it in the Acton and Taunton phases. These phases correspond with Needham's period 5. The spearhead has a leaf shaped blade, with a pronounced and rounded midrib ridge which runs to the tip of the spear. The tip is now worn and broken, as are the edges of the blade. The blade and midrib cross section is lozenge shaped. The socket is circular in cross section and hollow. The loops are about half way down the socket of the spearhead, these are formed of a narrow re…

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark grey, appearing brown under transmitted light, flint with cortex; notched scraper. Flake with a broad flake trimmed from its dorsal side by hard hammer strike, and with a bulb at the narrower end of a markedly concave ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect follows part of one edge to form a notch. The appearance of similar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect is misleading, and arises from adventitious edge-on impacts. The finder kindly cites PUBLIC-7040A5 as a parallel. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC Length: 41.1mm, Width: …

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper-alloy side-looped spear of Middle Bronze Age date, c.1550-1250 BC. It fits into the Acton Park or Taunton phases. These phases correspond with Needham's Period 5 (c. 1500 - 1150 BC). The spearhead has a leaf-shaped blade with a pronounced triangular cross-sectioned mid-rib on both faces, giving a lozenge shaped cross-section at the point. The edges of the blade are irregular and highly fragmentary due to corrosion. Some trace of edge bevels are discernable along parts of the blade edge, but it is hard to distinguish these from areas of corrosion. At the base of th…

Dark grey flint with cortex strip, scraper. A thick oval chunk with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by multangular hard hammer strike, trimming most cortex. The underside is unevenly broken. Misty patina has formed over all struck surfaces, suggesting the object has subsequently endured a period of exposure to a calcareous environment.

Grey flint fabricator fragment. An oval section tool with covering angled scalar retouch across both its sides, rounded at one end and flat at the other. The latter may evidence an ancient break, as a light misty patina extends across all surfaces, suggesting the object has endured a limited period of exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age, 2700-1600 BC. Length: 38.8mm, Width: 20.9mm, Thickness: 12mm, Weight: 12.94gms

Flint plano-convex knife fragment. The pointed end of a knife with a curved dorsal surface bearing covering angled scalar retouch, and with a flat ventral surface. A misty patina has developed over all surfaces including the fractured end, showing the object was broken in antiquity, and has subsequently endured exposure to a calcareous environment.

County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a Late Bronze Age copper alloy socketed axe head, probably dating to 1100-800 BC. Description: The fragment survives only as the cutting edge and part of the long rectangular socketed body. The cutting edge survives intact, albeit heavily worn. The blade runs in a very shallow convex curve and is heavily abraded, the blade tips flare slightly outwards. The surviving cross section of the socket is sub-oval. The remaining body appears to be undecorated although with such little remaining it is not possible to be sure although the casting seam is clearly visible . The axehe…

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Surrey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small Middle Bronze Age copper alloy barbed and tanged arrowhead, 20mm in length, of probable Middle - Late Bronze Age date (c. 1300 - 800 BC). The arrowhead has considerable abrasion and loss to the blade edges and tip, however it is clearly of triangular form. The cross sectional profile is flat, slightly elliptical but without a prominent midrib. The trapezoidal tang is splayed and relatively wide (6.5mm) compared to the overall width of the head (12.6mm).

County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a cast copper-alloy socketed axe of Late Bronze Age date. Only the blade edge survives intact, the remainder now missing due to old breaks. The fragment measures 8.94mm long, 30.97 wide and has a maximum thickness of 5.55m. It weighs 3.96g. The fragment is 'D' or crescent shaped in plan with a curved cutting edge, and has a straight inner edge. In cross section this inner edge is a pointed oval. The blade edge thickens evenly either side from the cutting edge towards the main section of the axe. Internally the blade is solid at this point. The blade edge has one small ch…

Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a Middle to Late Bronze Age copper alloy spear head, probably dating to c. 1550-800 BC. The fragment consists of the point of the blade; it is sub-triangular in plan, with a circular sectioned mid-rib and mid-rib aperture, from which project the wings of the blade. These taper in section into the point. Rest of the spearhead is lost to an old break. Length: 32.1mm; Width: 16.5mm; Thickness: 7.6mm; Weight: 8.44g. Precise typological classification is difficult considering the fragmentary nature of the object, however its form would suggest a Middle or Late Bronze Age date.
