Record ID: KENT-F67B57
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete rounded flint scraper likely of Neolithic date (c.4000-2200 BC). Description: The scraper survives in an a irregular shape with a long rounded end and pointed recent break opposite. The flaking on the dorsal and the and conchoidal scarring (rippling) on the ventral face are very pronounced which suggest hard hammer technology. The majority of the edge has short, scaled semi-abrupt retouch struck from the dorsal face, save the long broken edge which is formed by a transverse hinge fracture. The flint is an opaque dark brown with mottled areas of lighter patches. Measur…

County: North Lincolnshire

Grey flint scraper. A small thick chunk with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with similarly broad flakes struck from a bulbar ventral surface - it might be debated which side was originally which. Short abrupt retouch executed from the ?dorsal aspect follows a curved end opposite a broad butt and striking platform. A misty white p[atina may suggest the object has been exposed to a calcareous environment after its deposition. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 21.4mm, Width: 18.1mm, Thickness: 8.4mm, Weight: 3.79gms

Object type: FLAKED AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Neolithic (4000 - 2,100 BC) flint flaked axehead with possible (old) damage to the butt end. The axehead has an elliptical cross-section, being rather flatter on one face than the other. This face has transverse flake removals behind the cutting edge for c.one third of the length of the axehead. The cutting edge (41.7mm wide) is convex in shape and slightly lop-sided. Otherwise flake removals, to both faces, are from the centre towards the edge. The more convex face has a central ridge of coretex, tapering off to one edge just before the butt-end (21.2x19.3mm). At this point, the but…

Flint possible debitage. A small flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb on the ventral surface, the latter with adjacent striking platform. A dense creamy patina suggests the object has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment, while orange spots may hint at its subsequent incorporation in gravels. Broken in antiquity. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 18mm, Width: 18.7mm, Thickness: 4.7mm, Weight: 1.80gms

Record ID: NMS-C772B9
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary, semi-hard hammer struck, and rather thin flake, of largely unpatinated pale grey flint with white, mottled inclusions and faint, small iron oxide staining to parts of both faces. The bulb of percussion is partially removed by a flake removal on the ventral face, struck from the side of the platform. The distal end is steeply retouched to form the scraping edge, and both lateral edges are irregularly retouched. Flake scars to the dorsal face all run the same way as the flake itself, indicating that this piece was struck from a single platform core. Neolithic, possibly early.

Possible Early Neolithic (-3500 to -2900) knapped flint borer or piercer: The borer is an asymmetrical sub rectangle in plan with an off centre protrusion from the lower edge. This protrusion is possibly a fragment of the piercer of the borer which is purposefully knapped, although the tip may be missing. The ventral surface has a single negative flake scar, and conchoidal rings, bulbar scars and a bulb of percussion. The dorsal surface has three vertical negative flake scars. The flint is a mottled mid grey colour. It measures 38.22mm long and 18.67mm wide. It weighs 4.7g. The borer …

Flint debitage. Eight small thin chips or flakes from hard hammer working, all with flakes struck from their dorsal sides, and the largest three with bulbs at one end of their ventral surfaces, the rest being mostly flat on the ventral side. All are covered by a dense creamy patina suggesting they have endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment after their deposition. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC.

Brown flint scraper. Thick ovoid flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by multangular hard hammer strike, and with a bulbar ventral surface also trimmed by hard hammer strike. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved edge. Dense creamy patina suggests the object has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment after its deposition.

Grey-brown flint with cortex spot, scraper fragment. A small flake with parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulbar ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curving edge. The cortex in this case has formed over a previously struck surface, suggesting the pebble was exposed to a calcareous environment before its utilisation, though not apparently after its final deposition. Chipped, probably recently. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 17.2mm, Width: 21.4mm, Thickness: 5.8mm, Weight: 2.43gms
