Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped lithic implement of probable Mesolithic to Bronze Age date, circa 10,000 - 800 BC. The implement is a piece of debitage, or waste material, produced during the knapping process formed of a tertiary flake. It is sub-rectangular in plan and ovate in section. The dorsal surface displays conchoidal fractures and a bulb of percussion. Three possible flake removals are present on the ventral surfaced denoted by further conchiodal fractures. Possible retouch is present to the right edge of the mesial portion on the ventral surface. The flint is dark orange in colour. It m…

County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped lithic implement of Mesolithic to Neolithic date, circa 7000 - 3500 BC. The implement is a fabricator which is sub-ovate in both plan and section formed of a tertiary flake. The implement has been extensively worked in an irregular scaled pattern on all sides having numerous flakes of varying sizes removed from each surface. More extensive stepped, abrupt retouch is evident along both edges. The flint is a burnt orange in colour with lighter inclusions. The implement is 79.8mm long, 23.3mm wide, 9.5mm thick and weighs 19.3g. Fabricators may have been used in leathe…

Record ID: YORYM-098EAE
Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint core of late Mesolithic date, c.7000 - 4000 BC. The core is conical with a tapering sub-ovate section. The core displays two negative scars from blade removal. The flint is a light grey colour with a large area of remaining cortex. The implement is 26.7mm long, 23.1mm wide, 18.3mm thick and weighs 11.5g. This is a relatively small core, suggesting it could have been carried around and maintained for continued use to produce small blades as required over time. Broader flakes are indicative of an earlier Mesolithic date, with a general move towards narrower flakes in t…
