Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Greenish-brown to toffee coloured flint debitage. An irregular flake with two lakes struck from its dorsal side, a bulb at one end of a rippled ventral surface, and a positive hinge fracture at the other. Short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect defines a notch on one side, apt to the trimming of a shaft, and permitting an alternative identification as an improvised hollow scraper. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC Length: 38.5mm, Width: 22.0mm, Thickness: 6.2mm, Weight: 4.31gms

Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey [appearing honey-coloured under transmitted light] semi-translucent flint of high quality; leaf arrowhead, as kindly identified by the finder. A thin elongated oval flake with narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, and with a flat ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from both the dorsal and ventral aspects follows all of one long side and short adjoining parts at either end of the opposite long edge. The bilateral retouch is an unusual feature, and may have been intended to improve the already considerable penetrative efficiency of the arrowhead. Suggested…

Grey flint [appearing brownish under transmitted light] possible plano-convex knife. A sub-triangular flake with two broad and narrow flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb at one end of a slightly concave ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the edges of the object, with an indentation perhaps smoothed by wear on the shortest side, and a short [11mm] notch on one of the long edges. The finder kindly suggests a function for the object as an arrowhead; this reporter would consider it a little large and irregular in its thickness to se…

Grey-green [appearing toffee coloured under transmitted light] flint, possibly collected from the East Coast, plano-convex knife. A thick crescentic flake of plano-convex section with invasive angled scalar retouch along the dorsal side following its curving edge. The ventral surface is effectively flat with a bulb at one end. A crisply defined flat back to the blade is probably an original feature enabling pressure to be brought to bear on its cutting edge, as is a matching flat terminal at one end of the blade. Suggested date: Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age, 2700-1600 BC. Length…

Flint debitage. A small flake with broad and narrow parallel flakes removed from its dorsal side and with a small bulb at one end of an undulating ventral surface. A dense creamy patina suggests the object has subsequently endured exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC.

Dark grey green flint with cortex possible scraper. A sub-triangular flake with broad flakes trimmed by hard hammer strike from its dorsal side, and with a hollowed ventral surface. A long narrow flake has been trimmed by further retouch executed from the ventral aspect. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect has trimmed a small amount of cortex from a curving edge.

Pale brown and black flint, the latter with cortex spot, debitage. Three small flakes of irregular form, all with broad flakes struck from t heir dorsal sides and each with a bulbar or slightly concave ventral surface. The lack of surface patina may suggest these have recently been disturbed from a sealed context. The object illustrated at the left might have seen use as an oblique arrowhead, a later Neolithic form. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Combined weight: 7.34gms

Flint with cortex strip/spot, debitage. Four small flakes, three with long narrow parallel flakes struck from their dorsal sides and with flat or, in one case, concave ventral surfaces.

Honey tinted flint plano-convex knife fragment. Tip of a small plano-convex knife. Long narrow parallel flakes have been struck from the dorsal side while there is a small bulb at the end of a slightly concave ventral surface. Slight misty patina developed, suggesting a limited period of exposure to a calcareous environment. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the converging long edges, removing this light patina. Broken, probably recently, at its wider end. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC Length: 20.1mm, Width: 11.5mm, Thickness: 3.8m…

Dark brown flint debitage. A small flake with long narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a markedly concave ventral surface. Chips on the latter appear likely to have arisen from fortuitous recent edge-on impacts. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC Length: 34.4mm, Width: 13.5mm, Thickness: 5.8mm, Weight: 3.36gms

Burnt flint debitage. A small chunk with broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, and with an irregular ventral surface. The object has accumulated a dense creamy patina from exposure to a calcareous environment, and has then been crazed throughout by heating.

Dark grey (dark brown under transmitted light) flint with cortex strip, scraper. A thick flake with broad flakes trimmed from its dorsal side and a bulbar ventral surface. Misty patina has developed on both sides, though more thickly on one, suggesting some differential level of exposure to a calcareous environment. This has then been removed, by a positive hinge fracture at one side, and across the dorsal face in large areas, suggesting working by angled hard hammer strike. There is also a strip of patina trimmed from along one side of the ventral surface. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4…
