Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark grey flint with cortex, scraper. A thick slug-shaped flake with cortex trimmed from one end of its dorsal side by short abrupt retouch. The ventral side is concave, and bears invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect, situated at the same end that was trimmed from the dorsal aspect. A thin misty patina in the ventral surface, but absent from the areas of dorsal retouch, may suggest the reuse or refreshing of a discarded tool which had endured limited exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Neolithic, 2700-2350 BC. Length: 41.2mm, Width: 16…

Pale grey flint scraper. A small oval flake with a broad flake struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb at one end of a slightly concave ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the curved end. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 27.5mm, Width: 21.5mm, Thickness: 5.1mm, Weight: 3.81gms.

Grey flint with reformed cortex, scraper. A small flake with broad flakes struck from the dorsal side to trim cortex, and with a bulbar and slightly concave ventral surface. A pale buff patina developed over the struck surface on the dorsal side, to be later interrupted by short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect which follows a curved edge. This edge is itself interrupted by a more recent chip. Suggested date (embracing all episodes of working): Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 22.9mm, Width: 20.2mm, Thickness: 4.6mm, Weight: 2.72gms

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pale grey flint point fragment. A thin sub-triangular flake with covering angled scalar retouch across its dorsal side, and with a flat ventral surface with invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect along one long edge. The effect was to confer a thin lentoid section on the object as a whole. The narrower tip may have been broken in antiquity; the broader end either then or later. The finder kindly suggests this to be an oblique arrowhead. This reporter would rather see this as a fragment of a triangular or rhomboid point, again a late Neolithic category of object…

Grey flint with cortex strip, scraper. A triangular flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a faintly rippled ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows one curving end; the other end has been recently chipped. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC.

Object type: TRANSVERSE ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pale grey flint, possible oblique or transverse arrowhead fragment. A small flake with distinctively rippled flake removal scars on its dorsal side and with a bulb at one corner of its ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect appears to have followed the edge of the object, but is mostly removed by subsequent impacts, probably adventitious and recent, as these interrupt a light patina arising from limited exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Possibly Late Neolithic, 2700-2350 BC. Length: 28.1mm, Width: 22mm, Thickness: 4mm, Weight: 3.21gms

Grey flint possible backed blade. A thick pointed flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by hard hammer, and with an undulating ventral surface. The removal of the smaller flake of two struck from the dorsal aspect may have afforded a flat surface enabling pressure to be brought to bear on a long convex cutting edge. The object is lightly and adventitiously chipped all around its edges, recently at its butt end. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 36.9mm, Width: 18.4mm, Thickness: 6mm, Weight: 4.12gms

Dark grey opaque flint scraper. A sub-rectangular flake with broad and narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side by unidirectional working, and with a pronounced bulb at the butt end of the ventral surface. Short angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the curved end, though interrupted by more recent chips. Unusually, the object does not bear surface patina, which may suggest it was deposited in an atypical and sealed context from which it has only recently been disturbed. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500. Length: 44.3mm, Width: 33.6mm, Thickn…

Pale grey stone polished axe fragment. A trapezoid flake which has spalled from the side or cutting edge of a polished stone axe head. The smooth finish and homogenous fabric might point to this being from a Group 6 axe made of tufa from Langdale, Cumbria. Suggested date: Early to Mid Neolithic, 4000-2700 BC.

Grey flint backed blade. A trapezoid flake with broad and narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side by unidirectional hard hammer strike, and with a bulb at the broader end of the ventral surface. The cutting edge lies along the left hand long side of the object as it is viewed from its dorsal side, with the flat edge opposite permitting pressure to be brought to bear. A dense creamy patina indicates that the object has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment after its deposition. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500 BC.

Grey-green flint scraper fragment. A now sub-triangular flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by hard hammer strike; the ventral side appears to have been chipped with the removal of a possibly bulbar surface. Short angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect followed a curving edge; it appears likely that the working edge is truncated by a more recent break or breaks, and that further edge-chipping post-dates this damage. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 34.6mm, Width: 31.4mm, Thickness: 12.7mm, Weight: 16.42gms

Flint plano convex knife. A short oval flat-ended pebble with a slightly bulbar ventral surface and with covering angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect. One end is now indented by the hard hammer removal of a flake. Scars on the ventral surface are from more recent adventitious damage. A creamy patina overall suggests the object has endured exposure to a calcareous environment after its deposition while orange spots point to its incorporation in gravels. Suggested date: Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age, 2700-1600 BC. Length: 31.9mm, Width: 19.9mm, Thickness: 9.5mm, W…

Grey flint scraper. A small thick chunk with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with similarly broad flakes struck from a bulbar ventral surface - it might be debated which side was originally which. Short abrupt retouch executed from the ?dorsal aspect follows a curved end opposite a broad butt and striking platform. A misty white p[atina may suggest the object has been exposed to a calcareous environment after its deposition. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC.

Flint possible debitage. A small flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb on the ventral surface, the latter with adjacent striking platform.

Pale grey flint possible debitage.

Grey flint possible scraper fragment. Grey flint with cortex, possible scraper fragment.

Flint possible backed blade fragment. A thin flake with broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with very slightly concave ventral surface.
