  • Thumbnail image of LANCUM-DE0051

Record ID: LANCUM-DE0051
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age flint debitage retouched to a scraper. The flint is pale brown in colour. It is a tertiary piece of debitage that has had short, stepped, abrupt to semi-abrupt retouch to one corner. This has produced an artefact that could have been utilised as a crude but effective scraper. Probably dates to between c2700 and c1600 BC. The length is 24mm, width 16mm, and the thickness 10mm.

Record ID: LANCUM-8C5492
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Lithic implement from a translucent pale brown tertiary flake. (While it was recorded as an arrowhead Dr Kevin Leahy is cautious about this interpretation). The majority of working is on the dorsal face, suggesting this arrowhead was for use and not a status symbol. The artefact has been constructed in a rather odd way. The point is actually at the proximal end, while the arrows butt is at the distal end. This has created a problem with how to deal with the comparitevely large bulb of percussion. The rather crude solution has been to snap part of it off, followed by a short abrupt …

Object type: SERRATED IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Early to mid Neolithic serrated implement made from a tertiary flake of pale milky grey translucent flint with small white inclusions. One side and the distal end have been worked into a fine saw. The serration was created by micro flaking (short, parallel, cross abrupt) from the dorsal and ventral sides. The side opposite the serrated edge has a single long, and three much smaller, deliberate removals for 12mm (similar to YORYM-697977). The area between this removal and the proximal has been blunted with invasive, scaled, low angle retouch 4mm inward from the edge. The tip has a high…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Early Neolithic to early Bronze Age banded pale pink rhyolite blade with an end scraper and probable side scrapers. There has been attempt to reduce one of the ridges. One face is polished by wear, providing clues as to how it was initially used, ie as a side scraper. The mesal edges have occasional retouch, mostly short, parallel, low angled. The end scraper has been produced by short to medium, scaled & crossed abrubt to semi abrupt retouch. The striking platform has been removed with a single flake and the edges of the scar retouched (medium, sub parallel, low angle). The rhyolite …

Object type: AXEHEAD ROUGHOUT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Late Neolithic to early Bronze Age axe head roughout made from a tertiary flake of Langdale tuff. The roughout is thick-butted, double convex in section, sub-oval in plan, has crudely sub-rounded ends, and expands in plan from both the butt and the blade end to reach its maximum width 48mm from the blade end. Dates to between c2500 and c2100 BC. The length is 158mm, width 109mm, and the thickness 54mm. Other records of 'wide' rough outs or axes made from Langdale tuff include LANCUM-556645, HESH-277E48, and possibly SWYOR-B6DE55. This rock type is formed from compressed volca…

The roughout is thin-butted, double convex in section, has crudely rounded ends, and expands in plan from both the butt and the blade end to reach its maximum width midway along its length. Dates to between c3500 and c2350 BC. The length is 182mm, width 67mm, and the thickness 45mm.

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary flake of heavily patinated Langdale tuff, utilised as a chopping or scraping tool between the mid Neolithic to mid Bronze Age. The definite working is confined to the distal end. This consists of two groups of retouch. The first is invasive, scaled, and low angled. The second is short, sub- parallel, low angled, and may represent an attempt to sharpen the implement. It is difficult to account for the differences in patination on the artefact. The most likely explanation is that the older patina was gained in a different location and subsequently brought to the find spot. Date…

Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Neolithic, patinated off white flint, leaf shaped arrow head, fashioned from a secondary flake off a beach pebble. It has been bifacially worked with removals to 80% of its surface. The centre of the ventral appears to retain a polished surface. This may be a fortuitous result of some form of flaking, but there are no sign of conchoidal rippling so this is unlikely to be the result of artificial flaking. There is a central retained patch of cortex on the dorsal side. Dorsal retouch invasive, sub-parallel, low angled; ventral retouch invasive, parallel, low angled. Dates from c3500 to …

County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Late neolithic to late Bronze Age D shaped flint scraper manufactured on previously worked flint. Struck from a tertiary flake, it has a patinated white exterior with mid grey core. The flint was probably originally upper Paleolithic to early Mesolithic debitage or a broken tool, subsequently reworked, probably during the Bronze Age, but possibly in the late neolithic. At least two phases of retouching are evident so it may well have been reused twice. Final use as a tool dates to between c and c BC. Length is 41mm, width 48mm, depth 12mm, and the weight 29.4g.

County: Lancashire

Mesolithic to early Bronze Age worked white quartz or quartzite scraper. Its overall plan is D shaped, with the straight edge being the working edge. Due to the nature of it crystal structure, this material is hard to date from its working. As it bears a similarity to a D shaped scraper, it would be reasonable to assume that its most likely date of manufacture was late Neolithic to early Bronze Age. Dating to between c7000 to c1601 BC, probably to between c2700 and c1601 BC. The length is 10mm, width 10mm, and the thickness 5mm.

Mid Neolithic to early Bronze Age flint dischoidal tool, probably a knife or scraper, possibly originally a natural 'pot lid'. It has primary working and retouches to its whole circumference. The artefact has been subjected to burning at some stage, probably accidentally as none of the removal scars look unburned. Dates to between c3500 and c1601 BC. The length is 26mm, and the width is 20mm the thickness 3mm and the weight is 2.09g.

Early Neolithic to early Bronze Age partially patinated brown flint blade. It has a series of four small shallow notches down one side, and two less obvious ones on the other side. It has been very finely knapped (the thickness never exceeds 2.5mm even at the butt end), appears unbroken, and yet has retouches and wear polish. This suggests a long lived tool that was probably used for fairly light activities, possibly the removal of bark. Dates to between c4000 and c1600 BC. The length is 47mm, and the width is 15mm the thickness 2.5mm and the weight is 2.14g.
