Record ID: BERK-C8DAEA
Object type: FLANGED AXEHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Buckinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete cast copper alloy late Early Bronze Age to early Middle Iron Age developed flanged axehead probably dating to between 1700-1500 BC. The axehead has a narrow round-ended butt, which widens slightly down the length of the axehead before widening into a thin crescentic blade with pointed ends. Along the length of the axehead are two raised flanges, which produce a roughly H-shaped cross section. In profile the axehead is a pointed oval shape. The axehead is in good condition with a greeny-brown patina, with some small patches of corrosion ('bronze disease') present. This exampl…

  • Thumbnail image of NLM-6F3CFE

Record ID: NLM-6F3CFE
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint with cortex and dense patches of misty patina, scraper. Flake with broad flakes trimmed from the dorsal side and battering along its curved end, probably over the site of short angled scalar retouch. The extent of patina may suggest the object has endured a period of exposure after its deposition. It is disrupted along the longest thinnest edge, suggesting reuse of the object as a species of backed blade or knife. Both episodes may be accommodated within the Bronze Age. Suggested date: Bronze Age, 2350-800 BC. Length: 43.5mm, Width: 29.6mm, Thickness: 11.7mm, Weight: 12.86gms.

Grey flint with dense misty patina scraper. Thumbnail scraper. Flake with a broad flake trimmed from the dorsal side and a low bulb on the ventral. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the curved edge; the opposite edge is flat, probably deliberately so for ease of handling when using the tool.

Flint pebble, dull red on its outer surface, possibly crazed by burning: scraper. A coarse scraper made by hard hammer striking of large flakes from the dorsal side of a pebble which has a prominent bulb on the ventral surface. An area of battering - if not a natural irregularity - occurs on one struck surface. The other two opposed working edges or sites bear short scalar retouch trimming parts of their edges. A concavity between these sites at the butt is also trimmed. One corner bears invasive scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect, possibly marking the use of that part as …

Grey flint with cortex and misty white patina, scraper. Thumbnail scraper with broad flakes trimmed from the dorsal side and a bulb on the ventral. Short scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved edge. The bulb is also trimmed, probably by two sharp strikes executed from the dorsal aspect onto the edge of the flake. The extent of patina may suggest the object endured a period of exposure after its deposition, but it is interrupted by battering along the working edge, which may suggest an episode of reuse.

Dark grey flint with cortex, possibly collected from the East Coast, scraper. Flake with cortex trimmed by angled hard hammer working from the dorsal aspect and with a bulb on its ventral surface.

Grey flint with dense patches of misty white patina, scraper. Thumbnail scraper with a broad flat flake struck from its dorsal side and a bulb on the ventral.

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey-buff flint with dense white patina, scraper. Flake with broad flakes trimmed from both sides and subsequently patinated, presumably through long exposure. This was followed by invasive angled scalar retouch executed from one side, which removed the patina. As no further patination occurred, the object may have been incorporated into sealed deposit shortly after its final deposition. The Early Bronze Age could accommodate all these episodes. The side opposite the working face is broken, probably recently. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 32.2mm, Width: 29.3m…

Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint flake which is sub circular in plan. This is a primary flake with almost the whole dorsal surface being covered in cortex. In two area this cortex has been removed, possibly through natural damage. There is soil adhering in the resulting crevices. The ventral surface features a prominent bulb of percussion and a bulbal scar (partly obscured by the objects coordinates having been written in marker pen on this surface). The striking platform is present at the distal end and the point of percussion is visible. There are few visible ripple marks on this surface. The flint is pati…

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An almost complete flint barb and tanged arrowhead dating from the Beaker period or the Early Bronze Age. The arrowhead is roughly triangular in plan with two semi-circular notches cut into the base to separate the barbs from the central tang. The barbs are of uneven length. The shorter of the two is almost indistinct. It terminates in a flat face suggesting it may originally have been longer but has been broken. The arrowhead is made from a secondary flake, there is a very small area of white cortex present at the highest point on one of the faces. The flake has been bifacially worke…

An almost complete flint barbed and tanged arrowhead from the Beaker period or the Early Bronze Age. The arrowhead is triangular in plan with two semi-circular notches cut into the base to separate the barbs from the central tang. The barbs are of uneven length. The tang is irregularly shaped and it appears as though one corner might have broken off. The arrowhead is made from a tertiary flake that has been bifacially worked with invasive, scaled, low angle retouch on both sides. The flint is patinated giving it an opaque white appearance with an area of grey/blue towards the tip. Bo…
