Record ID: LANCUM-2F3921
Object type: END SCRAPER
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint flake end scraper of probable Neolithic to Bronze Age date (c. 3500 - 800 BC). The flint is dark brown in colour with slight light brown mottles. It is broadly trapezoidal in shape, with one straight and one curved long edge. The longer short edge displays short, semi-abrupt, scaled retouch on the dorsal face. The ripples of percussion on the ventral face curve across the length of the object. The object is 22.50mm in length, 14.02mm in width and 4.53mm in thickness. It weighs 1.70g.

Object type: POLISHED AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Slightly damaged polished stone axehead of Neolithic date (c. 4000 - 2350 BC). The axehead is formed from grey stone, probably Langdale tuff. The surface of the object has been weathered and is rough and pitted, to a greater degree on one side than the other. The more weathered side is also darker in colour. There is some brown surface accretion on both sides. The object is broadly rectangular in shape with a lentoid section. It widens slightly at one end and narrows into an unsymmetrically curved cutting edge. The other (butt) end is badly chipped and damaged. The object is 153.5mm in…

Object type: AXEHEAD ROUGHOUT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete though probably unfinished stone axehead probably a roughout of Neolithic date, c. 3500 - 2100 BC discovered below the foundations of a cottage garden wall. The axehead is possibly of the Graig Lwyd Group VII axe - the patina looks the type and the white speckles on a blue-grey matrix is typical of the rock type or it could be an epidiotised greenstone Group VI Langdale axe. The axe head is trapezoidal in plan with a pointed ovate section. The surfaces are rough with a chip to one side of the butt edge. The unpolished nature of the object suggests it was not properly finishe…

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint thumb-nail scraper of very late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age date c.2400-2100 BC. The flint is sub-rounded save for the striking platform edge. It has has short scaled abrupt retouch around the entirety of the rounded edges. The ventral face has been heavily rework to flatten the bulb of percussion with long invasive low angled retouch. Almost all the striking appears to be with heavy hammer technology. The scraper is a limid reddish yellow with mottling possibly from being exposed. The length is 27mm, the width is 14mm, thickness 13mm and the weight 3.77g.

Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Leaf-shaped Neolithic flint knife or oval side scraper dating from c. 3000-2100BC. This object appears to have been bifacially flaked suggesting that it is a knife. However, we do not have a side view for this object (only two images were provided by the finder) so we cannot be certain. It looks to have pressure flaking on dorsal side. It was probably formed on tertiary debitage rather than a deliberate stuck core.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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.

Nearly opaque, pale grey grading to white, worked quartz or quartzite. It has probably been made by working a pebble removed or eroded out of the native millstone grit. The shape of the tool has been formed with 5 major flakes and a number of smaller ones. Two of the edges have been retouched by microflaking. The edges remains sharp. It was possibly mounted at the end of a stick, bone or similar. The photograph has been taken so that the two retouched edges are pointing up. The unusual choice of knapping material, given the local abundance of good quality chert, may have accorded this…
