Object type: THUMB NAIL SCRAPER
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Bedford
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint Thumbnail Scraper of Neolithic date (3450-1500 BC). The lithic is sub-ovate in plan and concavo-convex in section. The dorsal surface has short scaled flaking along all edges with the exception of the blunted proximal edge. There is a minor amount of retained cortex along the distal right hand edge and four predominant negative scars with corresponding arrises. All edges except the blunted proximal edge have fine semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is slightly convex due to a bulb of percussion with a shallow negative scar over it, situated at the proximal end. T…

A complete flint Thumbnail Scraper of Neolithic date (3450-1500 BC). The lithic is sub-ovate in plan and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surface has short parallel flaking to all edges with the exception of the proximal edge and two large hinged flake removals in the mesal portion of the dorsal surface All edges except the blunted proximal edge have fine semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is convex due to a large bulb of percussion with a shallow negative scar over it, situated at the proximal end. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake.

A probable Neolithic flint knife, (c.4000 - c. 2200 BC) Description: The knife is formed from a tertiary flake sub-rectangular in shape with a roughly triangular cross section, the flat face is the ventral side of the flake. The edge is created with short invasive scaled low angle retouch it doesn't extend to each end of the edge and has been worked from both faces. The opposite edge has some crushing at the top corner around a fault in the flint, possibly to blunt a sharp section the knapper didn't deem necessary. The ventral face has a prominent bulb of percussion and clear conchoid…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Neolithic flint axehead (4000 BC- 2351 BC). This axehead is slightly 'humped' on one face, flaked overall on both faces and is asymmetrical lenticular in cross-section. The butt is rounded and the lateral sides flare and then taper slightly inwards to a straight cutting edge. One face is light grey and mottled pale orange with small areas of cortex at the butt end and centre. The other face is light buff/orange with iron staining. The cutting edge appears to have been broken and then re-sharpened on the face with the cortex. The removals on this cutting edge are short, p…

A complete knapped flint scraper dating to the late Neolithic or Bronze Age, c. 3000-1150 BC. It is broadly circular in plan, manufactured on a hard hammer tertiary flake of reddish brown translucent flint. The platform is partially chipped away, but demonstrates a prominent bulb of percussion indicative of hard hammer removal. The dorsl surface has several prior flake negatives, the distal end worked into a convex working edge by means of directly applied abrupt scalar retouch that extends around both edges of the support. Preserved in fresh condition, it measures 33.66mm in length do…

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Buckinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a bifaced flint implement. The flint is sub triangular in shape, and pointed oval in cross section. There is a diagonal break running across the wider section of the implement. On the dorsal face there are conchoidal ripple marks. On both mesal edges there is evidence of retouch in the form of stepped, invasive, low angle pressure flaking. It is possibly part of a chisel or dagger dating from the late Neolithic to the Early Bronze age, c. 2500-1500 BC.
