Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Brown flint scraper. A sub-rectangular shaped flint. Short broad and narrow flakes have been struck from the dorsal side. The slightly concave ventral surface is smooth apart from a prominent bulb of percussion at the left proximal end with shallow ripples of percussion emanating from this. There is semi-abrupt retouch to all edges and further semi-abrupt retouch executed to the left mesal of the dorsal side forms a notch, perhaps to serve as a tool to trim an arrow shaft. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000 - 4000 BC. Length: 49.0mm, width: 25.1mm and thickness: 11.8mm. Weight 12.0g.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Complete rounded flint scraper, dating within the period from the Mesolithic to the Bronze Age (c. 10000 - 1600 BC). The flint is broadly triangular in plan. The ventral face is flat and smooth, with an angled lozenge-shaped striking platform at the proximal end and a shallow bulb of percussion below it. The dorsal face is convex and retains much of its cortex. It has short, semi-abrupt retouch covering 75% of its distal end and sides on the dorsal face and short, semi-abrupt retouch along the proximal edge on the ventral face. It is possible that these represent two periods of retouch…
