Flint with cortex core. A rounded nodule fragment with broad and narrow parallel flakes struck from it by probably unidirectional working, though with cortex retained on a remaining curved surface. The aris between the struck surfaces and the angled striking platform is battered, suggesting the core was put to some other use as a pounding tool before it was discarded. The struck surfaces bear dense creamy patina, suggesting the object has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment after its final deposition. Iron spots may also suggest its incorporation in gravel. Suggested…

Pale grey flint debitage. A flake with long parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a concave ventral surface. A light misty patina has formed over all surfaces, though this is significantly less dense than that observed on most of the similar material recovered and reported from the same location at the same time, arising from exposure to a calcareous environment. The post-depositional experience of this object differs from that of much of the rest; the removal of patina from this example has arisen from adventitious damage. Suggested date: late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. …

Flint with cortex strip probable core fragment. A large chunk with long parallel flakes removed by initially unidirectional working from a flat striking platform. Though the form may have initially have been, or intended to be, pyramidal; either casual working or damage has left the larger part of the surface unevenly shattered.

Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect also trims the cortex itself, possibly to produce a very finely serrated implement.

Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint adze fragment. A sub-triangular chunk of broad lentoid section with, initially, two broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by hard hammer strike, and with an uneven ventral surface. Covering angled scalar retouch was carried across the dorsal surface, and a few comparable drafts appear on the ventral side. Broken at its broader end, probably recently. Patches of iron staining appear on the worked surfaces. The surface overall is a dull buff tint, possibly a deep patina arising from prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. L…

Flint microlith. A narrow triangular flake or bladelet with two long parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a slightly concave ventral surface. Angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect appears towards its pointed end. The finder considers the surface to be lightly crazed by burning.

Object type: PLANO CONVEX KNIFE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint plano-convex knife, as kindly identified by the finder. An oval flake with broad and narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side by unidirectional working, and with a flat to slightly concave ventral surface. The object bears a positive hinge fracture at one end. A thick creamy patina has developed overall, indicating the object has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment, and it has been glossed, perhaps by wind-blown sand, and subsequently chipped along its edges post-deposition. A single chip revealing the tint of the flint is more recent. Suggested …

Object type: BORER
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pale grey flint possible borer. Triangular flake with invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect, and with a bulb on its undulating ventral surface. The appearance of serrated edges may arise from fortuitous edge-on impacts, but the form appears to be deliberately tapered towards a point [now lost] Creamy patina suggests a period of exposure to a calcareous environment, while orange spots - more frequent than on the accompanying material - may suggest it subsequently became incorporated in gravel. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Length: 28.1mm, Widt…
