Object type: BARBED AND TANGED ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint barbed and tanged arrowhead dating to the Bronze Age (c. 2500 - 1200 BC). The arrowhead is formed from mottled white and grey flint. It is triangular in shape with two round notches chipped into the base to separate the barbs and tang. Both faces have been worked with covering, scaled and low-angle retouch. The end of the tang has possibly snapped off, as well as the tip of one of the tangs. The arrowhead is 24.70mm in length, 19.70mm at maximum width and 5.08mm in thickness. It weighs 1.61g. This form has been classified as Ballyclare B by Green (1980) Flint Arrowheads BAR R…

Blue-grey flint possible scraper. A thick flake with a broad flake struck from its dorsal side by hard hammer, and with a prominent bulb on its ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved edge. Misty patina has developed over the struck surfaces, suggesting a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. This is disrupted along part of the edge, possibly by battering or reuse of a discarded tool. The finder kindly suggests an identification as a tortoise scraper. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 36.4mm, Width: 38.…

Grey-brown flint with cortex, possible scraper. A small thick flake with a little cortex trimmed by angled scalar retouch, and a limited zone of short abrupt retouch along one side. A bulb and ripples appear on the ventral surface. Some if not all of the apparent retouch could have arisen from edge-on impacts. Suggested date: possibly Bronze Age, 2350-800 BC.

Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: West Berkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of Middle to Late Bronze Age (c.1500-900 BC) copper alloy spear, consisting of the tip of the blade only. It is roughly 'leaf' or 'flame' shaped but worn damage to both edges make it hard to determine its original form. At the oldish break the spear has a lozenge-shaped cross-section, measuring 12.3x8.9mm. The socket at this point measures 4.0mm in diameter and is off-set from the centre; this has resulted in a thin mid-rib edge at this point and a perforation further along the mid-rib in line with this. The central mid-rib is very pronounced and angular. The tip of the bl…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast copper alloy awl, sub-triangular in plan, rectangular in profile and ovate in section. The awl tapers in plan from the rounded spatulated end which is 14.6 mm wide, and sub-rectangular in section, to the pointed end which is 3 mm wide and circular in section. The awl is heavily patinated and has taken a lot of damage around the nib leaving it distorted and with several deep cuts across its surface. Some awls may have been hafted in to a wooden or bone handle and this flattened butt end may have made for better hafting. Plain copper-alloy awls are hard to date precisely, but ones …

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete copper alloy miniature flanged axe, dating to the late Early/ early Middle Bronze Age (c.1750 - 1550 BC). The axe has expanding, straight sides, curving into the cutting edge. At this point there is a slight imitative stop ridge on both faces. The flanges are low (c.1mm high), extending from below the butt end and tapering out as the sides curve into the cutting edge. The butt end is narrow and thin (6.3x0.9mm) with a slight convex curve and possibly a small area of damage at one corner. The cutting edge has a more pronounced curve, is 14.8mm wide and 0.8mm thick at the ve…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper alloy 'moustache' shaped object, similar to BERK-C3E5A3, GLO-3F7F09, and NARC-2C32D7, though the general shape of this object is more linear and less crescent. The object consists of two lobes joined at the centre by a thinner section that may have been an attachment or mounting point. The lobes are striated to about half their length, the outer tapered section coming smoothly to a point. The centre of the object is partially hollow. The entire surface is covered in varying levels of verdigris. The nature of use for these objects is currently uncertain.

Fragment of a copper alloy spear head dating from the Middle Bronze Age, about 1550 - 1250 BC. It probably can be assigned to Davis's Group 6 'Developed side looped' type (Davis 2017). It has a narrow blade measuring 44mm in length and 18mm in width. The tip is missing and the break is very worn and patinated suggesting it broke in antiquity; the base of the fragment also shares the same patina. Most of the spear head is missing.

Object type: CORE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North East Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark grey flint with cortex; possible core. A long chunk with large flakes removed from three of its four sides by hard hammer strike. The aris between adjacent faces is crisp, and only a small pot lid fracture and a larger conchoidal scar appear to post-date the putative evidence for working. This may argue the recent exposure of this object. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Height: 62.7mm, Width: 36.6mm, Thickness: 20.9mm, Weight: 55.86gms

An incomplete flint borer of late Bronze Age - Early Iron Age date (c. 1000 BC - 1BC). Description: The borer is sub-triangular in plan with a low flaked dorsal face and rounded convex ventral face. Much of the flaking seems incidental and not finely executed. There is limited short scaled semi abrupt retouch creating the boring point opposite the flat edge with cortex still adhering. The flint is heavily mottled dark through to light grey with some blue white where it is recorticating. The long flat edge has light brown cortex still adhering to it. Measurements: 38.57mm long, 4…

An irregular flint scraper likely dating from the late Neolithic to Bronze Age c.3300BC - 1000BC .

An irregular flint scraper likely dating to the Bronze Age or Iron age c.2400BC - 0BC . Description: The scraper was produced from a highly patinated older flake or tool and is now roughly trapezoidal in plan with curved edges and corners. The edges have short scaled abrupt to semi-abrupt retouch along them save for edge with the original striking platform. The tool is white and heavily patinated with some iron staining, where visible, like along the lines of retouch for example, the internal flint is a light grey brown.

A coarse flint scraper likely dating to the late Bronze Age or Iron age c.1000BC - 0BC . Description: The scraper was produced from a broken elongated ovoid primary flake (indicated by the substantial cortex remaining on the dorsal face) from a larger possibly naturally shattered flint (indicated by the multiple step and pitted like fractures on the part sof the edges). The flaking has left substantially conchoidal ripples on both sides of the flint and a substantial bulb of percussion on the ventral face, indicating hard hammer (stone on stone rather than antler, bone or padded st…

A flint scraper of probable Late Neolithic to Bronze Age date, c. AD 3000-1000. The scraper is worked from a secondary flake of opaque grey-brown flint mottled with paler inclusions. The flake is sub-oval in plan, and sub-trapezoidal in cross section, and from its size and thickness may be a fragment of a core. A striking platform with a diffuse, unscarred bulb of percussion survives at the proximal end. Negative removal scars from multiple directions are present on the proximal face. The flake is worked unifacially, struck from the ventral face, with relatively long, abrupt, sub-para…

Black flint possible scraper. A large thick flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by angled hard hammer strike, and with a bulbar ventral surface. A putative working edge [top] is battered. Conchoidal fractures and other edge damage may be naturally formed as these are common on unworked flints from the vicinity.
