Record ID: NLM-D69A09
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint possible edge-polished fragment. A chunk of lentoid section with an apparently curving cutting edge with polishing immediately adjacent to it, but otherwise bearing the scars of covering scalar working entailing hard hammer removal of a small number of large flakes. Though the putative cutting edge is crisp, the object is broken c.40mm behind it. All surfaces, including the putative fracture surface, are identically covered by a dense creamy patina and are iron stained, features suggesting a prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment followed by incorporation in gravels. This…

Object type: DEBITAGE

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint debitage. A large curved flake with broad and narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, and with a concave ventral surface. The surface bears dense buff-to-cream coloured patina overall, suggesting it has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment. The ventral surface bears metallic scratches. The finder reports the object was incorporated in the gravel base of an excavated Iron Age or Romano-British ditch, and he infers that the scratches are from the trowel cleaning of the ditch bottom. His own researches suggest the object form may be of Middle Palaeolith…

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint with cortex debitage. An irregular small chunk with broad flakes of cortex and a longer narrower flake trimmed by hard hammer from the dorsal side and with a rippled ventral surface. A dense creamy patina has developed over all struck surfaces, suggesting prolonged period of exposure to a calcareous environment; this is glossed, perhaps by wind-blown sand - 'desert gloss' - occurring in a periglacial environment. The patina has been removed by more recent and probably random impacts. Suggested date: Upper Palaeolithic, 40,000-10,000 BC Length: 48.9mm, Width: 29.6mm, Thickne…

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: North East Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron stained flint possible hand axe. A sub-trapezoid nodule trimmed on all sides by hard hammer working which has removed large flakes. There is also a limited zone of battering or crushing at either end. The appearance of retouch noted by the finder may in most cases be ascribed to casual impacts rather than purposeful working. These scars, however, partake of the stained tint of the surface of the object, and must accordingly have arisen in deep antiquity. The edge or aris between faces is usually crisp. Suggested date: Middle to Upper Palaeolithic, 150,000-10,000 BC. Length: 90.8m…

County: Lincolnshire

Pale grey flint possible point. Possible Mousterian point. A sub-triangular flake with broad flakes struck from the dorsal side and with a bulbar ventral surface; despite its suspected manufacture by the Levallois technique the flake is of a thin lentoid or oval section. Thick white patina has developed over all surfaces. Suggested date: Middle Palaeolithic, 150,000-40,000 BC. Length: 83.9mm, Width: 50.3mm, Thickness: 11.5mm, Weight: 40.59gms

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Dark grey flint with a small patch of uncoloured cortex and with iron staining on one side, Hand Axe. Bifacially worked oval axe of triangular profile and with a a broad base. Broad parallel flake removal scars from oblique soft hammer working appear on both its sides and across its base. The drafts of this initial working range from c.12 to c.26mm in width. Battered edge damage appears restricted to one edge and around the narrower end of the object. All surfaces bear a high polish characteristic of desert gloss acquired during interglacial periods, save for where a sub-triangular fr…

Toffee coloured clouded and opaque flint. Knife. Narrow rod shaped blade. Four very long parallel flake removal scars on the dorsal aspect confer an angular plano-convex profile; very faint rippling on the ventral side shows where the flake was detached from a core. Some slight abrasions along the edge have been smoothed. Though the object has a glossy surface overall, possibly a result of curation in antiquity, the context could equally suggest this appealing finish to be the result of wave action. Kevin Leahy kindly comments as follows: 'An interesting object. Without retouch the…

Record ID: NLM-54EC10
Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Pale grey to brown flint or chert. Hand Axe. Bifacial symmetrical pointed hand axe of oval section, with a smooth butt formed of the natural cortex of a flint nodule. The flint was extensively worked with prominent conchoidal ripples suggesting the initial use of a hard hammer, reducing the size of what is in effect a core. To judge from the direction of the ripples, much of this working proceeded inwards from both edges of the tool. The marks of working are in general well defined. The original surface of the object is iron stained to a honey colour on one side, and s…
