Record ID: LANCUM-579B63
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A convexly profiled bi-facial lithic flint, with a pointed end and a rounded base. It is uniformly black in colour. There is multi-directional flake removal on the surface of both faces and retouch particularly around its widest edge. Its size would suggest its use as a possible scraper. The length is 48mm, the width is 32mm, the thickness 13mm and the weight 11.03g

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A dark grey flint fragment of uniform thickness, with a fairly flat butt and partially rounded distal end, which shows evidence of having being re-worked due to the possible strong hinge fracture marks across the bottom third of the ventral face. A further small flake has been removed from the end of the striking platform, showing the conchoidal fracture marks. The reverse side shows some possible pressure flaking along its lower edge, with another small flake removed centrally on the edge, again suggesting re-working or damage. The length is 28mm, the width is 24mm, thickness 8mm and…

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small, triangular shaped flake, light brown in colour with both lighter and darker inclusions. On the dorsal edge there is a previous flake scar that has been broken sharply and the flint then probably turned to be reworked. A possible striking platform at the proximal end of the ventral side is apparent, with some evidence of the longer medial edge showing retouch. The length is 31mm, the width is 19mm and the weight 1.74g.

County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A large flake of dark flint, probably debitage which may have been shaped into a crude scraper. It appears to have been further worked, showing three removals for microliths from one edge of the dorsal side. The dorsal side has various areas of conchoidal ripples, but these appear to be from later damage rather than knapping. There is evidence of removal of a large flake at the proximal end. The ventral side retains a large area of cortex. The length is 52mm, the width is 40mm mm, and thickness is 15mm

County: Gloucestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete flint blade of probable late Mesolithic to early Neolithic date. The flint is a secondary flake and is sub-rectangular in shape. The dorsal side has a central ridge with two negative scars and parallel edges. The flint is roughly broken, missing the distal end. The ventral side is smooth with no fracture lines. The edges appear to have been re-touched. The flint is slightly convex in profile. The patina is mottled blue-grey with possible discolouring. The length is 31mm, the width is 14mm, thickness 5mm and the weight 1.48g. Similar examples include SWYOR-6F4C99, WILT-5C…

Perhaps a Late Mesolithic or Early Neolithic 6500 - 2900 BC worked flint fragment which is could be debitage but as there is a cutting edge on one side is probably part of a broken blade. The flint is caramel with some white speckling suggesting patination from frost damage. It is unusual for the caramel colour flint to be worked possibly because as it is no where near the robust of the flint types. However there is no natural flint occurring in the area and it may well have been found or brought from elsewhere. There were a range of materials worked in the Mesolithic including chert,…

Flint implement possibly a core used for striking microliths in the Mesolithic 8300 - 4500 BC. The flint is white and perhaps originates from the Yorkshire Wolds or could alternatively be worked beach flint from the Lancashire coast. There are 5 blade scars where microliths have been removed.The length is 30mm and the width 21mm.

Perhaps a Late Mesolithic or Early Neolithic 6500 - 2900 BC worked flint fragment which is probably debitage although there is a possibility of a cutting edge on one side. The flint is caramel white. There appear to be a number of impact fractures that have happened post-deposition which probably relate to ploughing. The length is 20mm and the thickness is 20mm.

Perhaps a Mesolithic 8300 - 4500 BC worked flint fragment which is probably debitage. The flint was originally a good quality greyish-black but is now a speckled mottled greyish white from exposure to the air and subsequent frost patination, with a few grey speckles that are probably impurities or inclusions in the flint caused by formation processes. There are 4 blade scars on the dorsal face The length is 21mm and thickness 20mm.

Perhaps a Mesolithic 8300 - 4500 BC worked flint fragment which could be debitage or it may be part of a broken tool as there is some evidence or retouch. The flint is good quality brownish-black with a few grey speckles that are probably impurities or inclusions in the flint caused by formation processes. There are 3 blade scars on the dorsal face and ripples at the proximal end from which it was originally struck which was possibly to create microliths but the bulb of percussion is now missing. The length is 20mm and the thickness is 20mm.

Perhaps a Mesolithic 8300 - 4500 BC worked flint fragment which could be debitage but is heavily worked so it may originally been part of a tool. The flint is good quality black with a few grey speckles possibly from exposure to frost. There are 3 blade scars on the dorsal face and ripples at the proximal end from which it was originally struck which was possibly to create microliths but the bulb of percussion is now missing. The length is 16mm and the thickness is 15mm.

Worked flint probably a Mesolithic bladelet with 4 striking scars and damage at the dorsal point possibly from a plough 8,300-4500 BC. The blade was originally struck from the proximal point evidenced by a bulb of percussion and there is evidence of retouch along the blade edges. The colour is a mottled greyish blue which is probably a result of frost patination. The length is 32mm and the thickness is 16mm.

Black Pennines chert borer possibly Late Mesolithic to Early Neolithic 6500-2900 BC. The chert is a dull black in colour with traces of the original white banding at the distal end. The surface reveals traces of weathering but this would be consistent with the original working of the weathered face for extraction. There are known sources of black chert in the South Pennines and this may well be naturally occurring around Boulsworth Hill and Thursden Valley. The length is 42mm, the width 30mm and the depth 16mm.
