County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small fragment of flint debitage, very difficult to date. The fragment is very worn and probably some kind of waste flake that was chipped off the core and discarded. Since flint was in use until the early modern period in this area, it is very difficult to date it without context. However, flint does natually appear on the west coast of Britain and thus, the fragment probably came off a core that was brought here from the east.

Object type: GUNFLINT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small platform gun-flint, probably from a pocket pistol dating between 1600-1800AD. The flint is rectangular in plan, with sub-parallel lateral margins, and trapezoidal in section and triangular in profile. A flint core would have been quartered and knapped with metal punches to produce suitably broad rectangular flakes which would then have been dressed and segmented into square chunks. The flint has bimarginal worked edges, and worked distal and proximal ends. Apart from the edges, the ventral face is smooth and flat. The dorsal face is chamfered on both sides and at both ends, havi…

Lithic implement, probably a knife or scraper. It was knapped from light grey speckled flint and is hardly patinated.

Small piece of worked flint, very probably a small piece of debitage dating from the late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age, i.e. 2500-1500BC, possibly earlier (exact dating of stray finds of flint debitage is very difficult). The piece is small and can be compared to pieces of flint and chert debitage from Anglezarke Moor in Lancashire which was a well-known seasonal flint-working site throughout the Stone and Bronze Age. This flint is of white colour and it is not opaque or translucent. The white colour either suggests that the waste flake either suffered from extreme heat at some point…

County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Complete 'D' shaped scraper knapped from grey black flint and dating from the late Neolithic period 2500-2100BC, possibly a Riley Type 5 (Bond, C. Plate 5.112 and 5.113). The scraper is complete, made from a short, round flake with retouch along the total distal and halfway up the two mesial edges. Both the ventral and dorsal faces are very smooth with even ripple marks. Scrapers could have many uses from scraping the fat off animal skins, to scraping the bark off arrow shafts. The length is 42mm, width 34mm, thickness 6mm and the weight is 14.21g.
