A flint thumbnail scraper of Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date. The scraper is struck off a tertiary flake and retains no cortex. The scraper is a rough D shape in plan with a curved distal end which shows medium parallel semi abrupt retouch along the entire edge from the ventral face. The dorsal surface potentially shows at least two directions of knapping one from near he distal end and another from the proximal end. The ventral surface shows no retoutch and is smooth bar two chips at its distal end. Part of the small bulb of percussion is visible as is part of the platform fr…

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint scraper of probable Late Neolithic to Bronze Age date, c. AD 2700-1000. The scraper is worked from a secondary flake of opaque dark grey flint mottled with paler inclusions with a small amount of cortex remaining in the centre of the dorsal face. The flake widens from the proximal to the distal end. A striking platform with a bulb of percussion on the ventral face survives at the proximal end. Negative removal scars from hinged removals from the same platform are present on the dorsal face. The flake is worked unifacially, struck from the ventral face, with relatively long, abr…

42 complete and snapped flint blades or bladlets of later Mesolithic date (6000BC - 3500BC). These blades are struck from a core and have the generic crested appearance on their dorsal faces. Many of the blades have been deliberately snapped through the removal of side notches and deliberate breaking. The underside / ventral face of each shows conchoidal rippling and some have evidence of bulb of percussion and / or striking platforms. None of teh blades have been retouched. The colour of the flint varies between light grey - dark black and some have a mily white coloured surface patin…

Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint flake possibly with hollow scraper blades on each edge, c.1000-1BC. Description: The flake is a tertiary flake with no cortex remaining. Along both long edges at the same point on the flake are two small concave sections with short scaled semi-abrupt retouch likely intended to create a hollow scraping edge. The bulb of percussion on the ventral side is quite pronounced as is the bulbar scar and conchoidal rippling indicating the use of a hard hammer in its production. The flint has been heavily bashed and rolled. The flint is opaque mid grey through to light brown towards its …

Fifty Eight (58) fragments of secondary flint waste / debitage of Neolithic date (3500-2100 BC). All of the flakes are from secondary phase of working / flaking and are a direct result of preparation of flint tools. Most show clear signs of direct hard hammer knapping and the majority have been removed with minimal loss of flint from the nodule / core. The cortex is all mid grey in colour and the majority is chalk derived. The majority of the flint is a light grey through to black colour, although some pieces have milky white surface patina. This collection is from an assemblage of la…

A knapped flint side scraper on a broken tertiary flake, scalar semi-abrupt directly applied retouch forming a rounded convex working edge. Most of the platform shattered away in old damage. Length down percussion axis: 29.05mm, 39.63mm maximum width, 9.23mm thick at its midpoint. Weight: 14.51g. The crude nature of this piece suggests Middle-Late Bronze Age manufacture, c. 1500-750 BC.

Late Neolithic to early Bronze age flint scraper?, 14mm long, 13mm wide and 5mm thick with a weight of 1.17g. The object is sub-rectangular in form and cross section. It appears to be formed of a small re-worked flake with slight rippling on its ventral surface. It has been worked and rounded at one corner with semi-abrupt, invasive, stepped re -touch to form a scraper edge.

A complete knapped lithic implement of Neolithic date, circa 4000 - 2300 BC. The implement is a scraper, designed to be held between the thumb and forefinger, formed from a secondary flake which is sub-ovate in plan and D-shaped in section. The ventral surface is smooth and displays a striking platform and prominent bulb of percussion. The dorsal surface retains 10% cortex with long, scaled, semi-abrupt retouch to create the scraping edge. The flint is dark grey colour, with pale mottling on the dorsal surface, and paler and darker mottling on the ventral. Length: 36.8mm, width: 35.1m…
