Record ID: LANCUM-183BC4
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Early Bronze Age worked flint barbed and tanged arrowhead made from white/light grey flint. One barb and tang missing, but otherwise complete. There is retouch to all surfaces and the edges of the blade were carefully knapped. The barbs of the arrowhead are square, and this and the size of the arrowhead suggests that it is of the Sutton b type, common in the Early Bronze Age (Green 1980, 117-143). The photograph was kindly supplied by the finder.

Record ID: LANCUM-177CC5
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
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.

A blade is an elongated flake that was detached from a core-the rule of thumb being twice as long as it is wide. Blades were often modified and mounted in handles or hafts. This small flint blade, dating to the Mesolithic period, is milky brown in colour, with some creamy speckling. It is rectangular in shape and broken at one corner.It appears to have been retouched. It measures 40.78mm x 20.15mm x 4.84mm and weighs 2.6g. These flints form part of a large antiquarian collection of general surface finds. It consists of lithic implements and associated waste flakes. The collection i…
