Object type: GUNFLINT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark grey flint, gun flint fragment. A flat-sided rectangular flake with three bevelled sides, the other broken. Impact damage appears on one of the remaining bevelled edges. The fresh condition may point to a relatively recent date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1700-1800 Length: 20.6mm, Width: 16.2mm, Thickness: 5.7mm, Weight: 3.02gms

Translucent pale grey flint of high quality, debitage fragment.

Grey flint with cortex debitage fragment. A thin flat oval-ended chip, with a narrow flake struck from cortex which otherwise covers the dorsal side, and with a bulb and small striking platform at one end of the ventral surface. Patches of white patina may arise from subsequent exposure to a calcareous environment. Broken, probably recently.

: Flint with cortex possible backed blade. A thin flake with a broad flake trimmed from its dorsal side and with broad and narrow flakes struck from its dorsal side. The cortex may have been retained to enable pressure to be exerted on the opposite cutting edge, as a backed blade. A creamy patina suggests it has subsequently endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment.

Grey flint tranchet axehead. An oval biconvex flint object of oval section, with broad and narrow flakes trimmed from one [?the ventral] side by probably multangular angled retouch, and with covering retouch across the other [?dorsal]side comprising predominantly unidirectional angled retouch. The identification offered is suggested by the angled cutting edge which appears to have been formed by a single hard hammer strike. The aris between the two convex sides is lightly battered. Chips at the cutting edge are probably recent and adventitious damage. Suggested date: Early Mesolithic, …

Pale grey [?Wolds] flint fabricator. A narrow finger-shaped rod with covering angled scalar retouch across its dorsal side and with a flat and slightly concave ventral surface; chips from the underside are probably adventitious damage, though as the tint of the flint is identical at these sites it may have been incurred in antiquity.

Brown translucent flint with cortex strip, lithic implement. A thin flake with broad and narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, and with a prominent bulb on its ventral surface. The cortex strip is opposite a curving cutting edge with short scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect following it, suggesting a function as a backed blade. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect also trims the cortex itself, possibly to produce a very finely serrated implement.

Flint possible backed blade. An oval flake with broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, a near-flat ventral surface, and a narrow long flake struck from along one edge of the ventral surface which may have permitted pressure to be exerted on the putative cutting edge opposite. The scalloped or serrated appearance of the cutting edge is perhaps a result of fortuitous edge-on impacts, albeit occuring in antiquity. A dense creamy patina overall suggests the object has subsequently endured a prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC

Grey flint knife. A trapezoid flake with broad and narrow flakes struck from its dorsal side, and with a bulb and ripples on its ventral surface. One end may then have received short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect along a curved end. A misty patina then formed over all surfaces, suggesting the object was discarded and endured a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. The patina was subsequently removed along one straight edge by short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect. This represents a flake reused after its initial deposition; the Neolithic period…
