Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Mesolithic microlith barb of tertiary grey flint. Probably used as part of a composite arrow or barbed spear. There are removals to the entire surface. Almost all the retouch is pressure flaking from the ventral face and is short to semi-invasive, sub-parallel and semi-abrubt. The proximal end has been reduced, probably to aid in mounting. Dates to between c8000 and c4000 BC. Flint microliths of similar form have have been excavated at various sites throughout Britain, including Cherhill (Wiltshire) where they were dated to the early sixth millenium BC. Length 12mm, width 5mm, thickne…

County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small flint blade made from a pale greyish brown flake. It shows evidence of a bulb of percussion and concoidal ripples on the ventral side while the dorsal side has two largely parallel dorsal ridges converging at the proximal end where a flake has been removed along the middle. The distal end has been snapped off in antiquity and there is a very small area of cortex remaining towards this end. All edges show evidence of reworking. All surfaces are crazed across their entire area which may be the result of heating or freezing. Length 21mm Width 13mm Thickness 5mm Weight 1.5g

Flint implement possibly a core used for striking microliths in the Mesolithic 8300 - 4500 BC. The flint is white and perhaps originates from the Yorkshire Wolds or could alternatively be worked beach flint from the Lancashire coast. There are 5 blade scars where microliths have been removed.The length is 30mm and the width 21mm.

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.
