  • Thumbnail image of LIN-A91D32

Record ID: LIN-A91D32
Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A Lower Palaeolithic flint biface dating to the Acheulian. It is sub-oval in plan and is worked all over. It has some modern damage mainly located at one tip, and the axe overall has a slightly rolled - but not extensively so - feel to it. The axe presimably was in MIS 6 (Balderton-Southrey) terrace deposits of the Trent and derives from earlier deposits upstream. It is impossible to date, but possibly derives from an MIS11 context (between 424,000 and 374,000 years ago).

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire

A complete lower Palaeolithic, Acheulean, bifaced ovate flint hand axe. The axe is oval in plan, pointed oval in cross-section and has a flat striking platform at the base. Both sides display flake scars that generally run from the edge inwards. One side has three broad and long flake scars that run from the striking platform to just below the apex. The majority of these flake scars display a rust-orange colour patina. The flint is mottled cream colour. The striking platform is roughly lozenge shaped and measures 38mm x 17mm. Such hand axes were in widespread use from c.600,000 to…

Record ID: LIN-2A3012
Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A Lower Palaeolithic ovate flint handaxe, probably dating between 800,000 and 250,000 years ago. The axe is ovate in plan and pointed-oval in cross-section. The handaxe has a cream-coloured patina with patches of orange-brown coloured patina along many of the flake ridges. The tip of the axe is missing, having been broken in antiquity. The axe is smooth and rolled. The axe was discovered on the beach at Stokes Bay, Gosport, circa 1987. Along that stretch of coast there are eroding river gravel deposts from the former River Solent, so it is likely that this has been eroded out of on…

A possible Lower or Middle Palaeolithic flint hand axe. The axe is ovate in plan and in cross-section, and made from a mottled yellow-light brown flint. The ventral surface is very irregular and damaged. There some signs of flake scars, on the other side, but this axe - if it is anthropogenic at all - is in a bad state. Published in Lithics Vol. 26, p. 97 and fig. 8.

Record ID: LIN-15D511
Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Palaeolithic cordate flint hand axe. The axe is uniface, roughly D-shaped in cross-section and covered with a thick chalk-coloured patina. Where recent damage has occured to the edges, a mottled dark brown flint can be seen. The butt end (proximal) of the axe retains a thicker band of chalk-coloured patina, which may in fact be cortex or recortification. The opposite end (distal) has an incomplete tip, which was broken in antiquity. There are a number of medium sized flakes removed from the ventral surface, and two or three larger ones removed from the dorsal.

Record ID: LIN-6E2165
Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Palaeolithic hand axe or a Late Neolithic ovate made from a mottled mid-brown flint. The dorsal surface has circa 30% cortex at the proximal end, however this may be re-cortification, since the layer is very thin and almost translucent. The edges and distal end have suffered damage. The surface is fairly smooth and appears polished in places. Although there is no doubt as to the findspot of the axe, there is doubt over whether it is from this location originally. There are two factors that cast doubt; the first is that the find is from Holbeach, which due to its location in the wash h…
