Record ID: DEV-76D033
Object type: SPUR
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Post-Medieval copper alloy rowell spur, probably dating to c. AD 1700-1850. The spur is fragmentary, with only one abraded arm and a circular-sectioned neck surviving. The rowel box, rowell and second arm all lost to old breaks. The surviving arm is plano-convex in cross section. The spur appears undecorated, but has surviving traces of a white metal coating. Dimensions: length 71.5mm; width c. 73mm; thickness 11.7mm; weight 23.60g. Ellis (2002) notes that rowell spurs largely replaced prick spurs in Western Europe from the 14th century onwards, however most examples are much later…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
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…

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
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…

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…

A flint thumb-nail scraper of probable Early bronze age date, c. 2400-1600 BC. A tertiary flake of dark brown flint, mottled with grey inlusions. Sub-rectangular in plan, with a relativey pronounced bulb of percussion on the ventral face, but with the striking platform worked away at the proximal end.
