  • Thumbnail image of NLM-7E98C3

Record ID: NLM-7E98C3
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
Green Volcanic Tuff from the Langdale Pikes. Polished Stone axehead of Group 6 (from visual examination). Axehead of elongated teardrop form with a sharp crescentic cutting edge whence it tapers along its length to a narrow rounded butt. A lentoid section at the cutting edge gives way to a flat-sided form behind it, with flattened and polished areas along the edges where the sides of the axe meet. This was presumably intended to prevent an originally sharp aris from cutting through a tied hafting. A D-shaped chip towards the cutting edge on one side has possibly been smoothed but not …

Pale Grey Stone, probably Volcanic Tuff and possibly from Pembrokeshire (possibly Group 23) to judge from its similarity to a provenanced axehead displayed at North Lincolnshire Museum. Axehead. Large elongated oval axehead of lentoid section with a crescentic cutting edge, tapering to a pointed - the end appears to have been recently chipped - butt. The upper and lower edges of the axehead bear a flattened zone extending from the back of the cutting edge almost to the butt. This is presumably to enable a tied hafting without risking sharp arises cutting through lashings. The object i…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers
Greenstone polished axe, reworked into waisted form. Polished Group 6 axehead fragment comprising a crescentic cutting edge and c.30mm of the original sides of the axe meeting its ends. Beyond this point, pecking has transformed a probable originally oval form of lentoid section by forming a marked waist or in-swing. This might have facilitated a tied fastening, though its security was perhaps compromised by loss or damage to the butt end, which is probably truncated and certainly fractured. The waisted form recurs on a polished axe dated to between the Later Neolithic and Early Bronz…

White Flint (patinated overall) Polished Axe fragment. Flint axe comprising a sub-ovoid axe head with one straight side, possibly from an ancient break. The flint bears either large hard hammer flake removal scars or similarly abrupt damage over all other areas except that near the cutting edge, and these confer the appearance of a particularly graceless Mesolithic Seamer-style axe. However, the cutting edge is curved and finely polished on both sides, and this feature commends a Neolithic date. It remains uncertain whether most flaking post-dated the polished finishing of the axe, as…

Object type: POLISHED AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Derbyshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Incomplete and damaged ground and polished stone axehead of Neolithic date. The axe is a tapered sub-rectangle in plan, flaring outwards towards the rounded cutting edge, tapering towards the butt, and is a pointed oval in cross-section, bith lengthways and side to side. Both faces of the axe have chips which are more invasive along the edges, the weathering of these chips suggests various dates of occurence with some being relatively recent. The stone is of fine-grained type and a pale beige-green colour, possibly of Lake District (Langdale, Cumbria) origin. Axes of this type are dat…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Silty sedimentary stone spindle whorl, ranging from pink to brown in colour, with small flecks of mica, so it may be a micaceous argillaceous shale. The whorl is circular in plan and sub-rectangular in profile, with parallel faces apart from a thinner edge on both sides where a layers of the shale have broken away through wear or damage. The central aperture is circular in plan and cylindrical in profile and measures 9 mm in diameter and 10 mm deep. The central position of the aperture would enable the whorl to be balanced while used in the spinning process. The aperture has concentri…

Amber bead that is circular in plan and sub-oval in cross-section with a central hole drilled down the middle. Uncertain date - amber beads are very difficult to date. They are reasonably commonly known from Bronze Age to Early Medieval contexts although a roman date is perhaps the most likely in this instance.

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Polished stone, possible finger ring bezel. An oval sliver of dark brown polished gem stone, highly glossed overall and chipped at one end. The finder suggests this to be a possible inset from jewellery; the small size would probably make this more likely than an identification as a mount from a casket or furniture. Suggested date: Unknown, 40-1800. Length: 12.6mm, Width: 10.0mm, Thickness: 1.8mm, Weight: 0.45gms.

A Neolithic fully polished stone axe of pale olive colour with a few minor ancient chips to both ends. There is a larger sub-conchoidal recent damage flake removed towards the middle of one face, the stone in this facet is of a grey/green nature and is unpatinated showing the original colour of the rock. The lateral edges are sharply faceted and the cutting edge shows signs of being re-flaked and reground, thus the axe may have been much larger originally. Surviving dimensions: 114.5 x 65 x 32mm. This stone has its origins in Cumbria and is a product of the Great Langdale axe "fact…

Dark Blue opaque glass Intaglio. Oval gem stone with bevelled upper edge, flat behind. A naturalistically carved motif presents a male nude figure standing right, probably helmetted - or alternatively with a pudding basin haircut - standing left, holding an object in his outstretched right hand: this is probably a severed head; and a staff in his left. A long shaggy cloak hangs over his shoulders reaching down to his calves. An object at first identified as an oval chip is at 5 O'clock; closer inspection suggests this may be a round shield with rim. The lower sides and back are extrem…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
An incomplete stone axehead of Neolithic date (4000-2350 BC). The lithic is bi-convex and sub-rectangular in profile, with a smooth ground surface and tapered ground curvilinear (incomplete) cutting edge. The portion of the axe situated directly behind the cutting edge remains predominantly intact, however, the integrity of the lithic reduces sharply past the mesial point. Large and deep negative scars have removed a portions of the ground surface of the axehead, significantly more on one side of the object, and are most probably due to post depositional processes. The break situated …

Object type: ADZE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
Stone adze, triangular in plan, lozenge-shaped in profile and oval in section. The adze is smaller and narrower than local examples, and the angle of the asymmetrical blade is steeper than on indigenous stone adzes. The adze is composed of a uniform fine-grained dark green rock with some patches of dark red mottling. Examination under a binocular microscope (x20-40) shows the rock to be slightly translucent with little textural detail or internal structure. Such textural detail as can be seen is suggestive a fine-grained volcanic ash. It is likely that the rock is not local to the sou…

Fine Grained Sandstone Cobble. Linen Smoother or Muller. A handy fragment knapped from a water-smoothed cobble, with the broken face trimmed flat and smoothed by heavy wear, and the other faces smoothed by handling. The use of both improvised and purpose-made smoothers for the finishing of leather or textiles, and the use of mullers for the grinding of vegetable matter for craft or culinary use, is known through Prehistory to the end of the Early Medieval period. A parallel to this example was excavated from 12th-century deposits at Lurk Lane, Beverley (Armstrong et. al. 1991, page 1…
