  • Thumbnail image of NLM-94E1D8

Record ID: NLM-94E1D8
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pale grey flint scraper. A thin sub-triangular flake with long parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb at one end of its ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect forms a rounded notch in a pre-existing concave side. Misty patina suggests the object was exposed to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Length: 36.8mm, Width: 21.9mm, Thickness: 5.0mm, Weight: 3.51gms

Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey-green flint, banded with grey, with cortex; core fragment. A chunk with an oblique ventral surface which may show where it has split from a larger core. On the original dorsal surface long narrow parallel flake removal scars indicate unidirectional working from a now-lost striking platform. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Height: 36.7mm, Width: 27.5mm, Thickness: 15.5mm, Weight: 11.85gms

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark opaque chocolate brown flint, possibly collected from the East Coast; debitage. A thick flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by multangular hard hammer strike, and with a markedly concave ventral surface. Flint of this distinctive tint is occasionally reported from this region, where grey flint predominates, is usually of earlier date, and is sometimes worked exceptionally well. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Length: 53.4mm, Width: 27mm, Thickness: 18mm, Weight: 20.95gms

Record ID: NLM-11BD2A
Object type: HAMMERSTONE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Brown fine-grained sandstone water-rolled cobble, hammerstone. An oval cobble with an ancient chip towards one end, subsequently smoothed by wave, water or erosive wind action. The narrower end bears a zone measuring c.50mm by c.40mm of tiny indentations which appear pale r and rougher than the rest of the surface. The finder credibly suggests this to result from the use of this object as a hard hammer to work flint, and the object was indeed reported along with a range of flint-working debris. As most of this accompanying material is ascribed a Late Mesolithic date, this seems apt he…

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint with cortex debitage. Two flakes, one larger [length 43.5mm] and of sub-triangular shape, the other smaller [length: 21.7mm]. Both have had broad flakes struck from their dorsal sides by hard hammer, and both have slightly concave ventral surfaces. The larger flake bears thick white patina indicating it has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment. The smaller flake lacks this, and was perhaps in a sealed context until recently. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Combined Weight: 5.72gms

Object type: BACKED BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey translucent flint of good quality with cortex strip, appearing honey coloured under transmitted light; backed blade. A small narrow flake with long parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a small bulb at one end of a slightly concave ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect may follow one long edge, though these small scars might have arisen from adventitious impacts. The retention of cortex on the opposite long edge, however, may show this to be deliberate. There is no patina, in contrast to most of the accompanying material. Sugge…

County: Lincolnshire

Grey flint with cortex, core. A chunk with long parallel flakes removed by probably unidirectional hard hammer working. White misty patina has developed over struck surfaces, suggesting the object endured exposure to a calcareous environment after its deposition. This is lost to subsequent adventitious impacts. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Height: 37.6mm, Width: 28.6mm, Thickness: 22mm, Weight: 27.14gms

Grey flint with cortex, scraper. A small thick chunk with parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, trimming some cortex, and with an originally bulbar ventral surface. The latter received further trimming removing narrow parallel flakes, followed by long angled retouch executed from the ventral aspect following a curving edge. The relict cortex may have been retained to facilitate use of the tool. Misty patina indicates the object was exposed to a calcareous environment after its deposition. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Length: 29mm, Width: 32.8mm, Thickness:…

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint with cortex spot, burnt flint. A small chip with a bulbar ventral surface, where crazing from burning appears. Probably a small chip of debitage; accompanying material of similar size was considered later Mesolithic in its date, which should equally apply here. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Length: 15.8mm, Width: 11.2mm, Thickness: 4.9mm, Weight: 0.96gms

Flint, two with cortex spot, debitage. Eight small flakes and bladelets, with broad and narrow flakes struck from their dorsal sides, as long parallel flakes in the case of the narrower fragments. The ventral surfaces are flat, bulbar or concave. Misty white patina has developed to varying degrees, reflecting exposure to a calcareous environment after their deposition. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Combined Weight: 8.14gms

Pale grey flint debitage. A small flake with two long parallel narrow flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a flat ventral surface, slightly bulbar towards one end. A pale grey tint is largely masked by dense creamy patina suggesting the object has endured a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC.

Flint debitage. A small flake with parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a slightly undulating ventral surface and consequently wavy profile.

Flint core fragment. An elongated chunk with long narrow parallel flakes struck from it by probably unidirectional working from a small striking platform at one end.

Grey flint possible knife. Long narrow flake with long narrow parallel bladelets struck from its dorsal side and with an undulating ventral surface. Patches of misty patina suggest the object was exposed to a calcareous environment for a period after its deposition. This is locally interrupted, probably by adventitious edge-on impacts.

Grey flint microlith. A small narrow flake with long narrow parallel bladelets struck from its dorsal side and with a slightly concave ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect defines a hollow in one long edge, while the opposite edge may bear very fine serrations, more easily felt than observed. Creamy patina on struck surfaces suggests the object has endured a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC.

Pale pinkish-brown flint serrated implement fragment. A thin narrow flake or bladelet with long narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a very slightly conxcave ventral surface. Very short abrupot retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows one long edge, producing serrations so fine they are more readily felt than observed. The object is broken at one end, probably recently, revealing a creamy patina which may suggest the object has endured exposure to a calcareous environment after its deposition.

Brown flint with cortex strip, possibly collected from the East Coast; scraper. A long flake with long parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb at one end of its ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect trimmed cortex along one long edge, and contributed to the formation of a notch in the opposite long edge. The edges are battered by use.
