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

Pale honey-coloured semi-translucent flint probable gunflint. A rectangular flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a near-flat ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed form the ventral aspect trims one shorter side edge. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect extends along two adjacent edges, and probably represents the action of the hammer of a flintlock - or possibly of a tinderbox with a comparable mechanism for striking a spark. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1800. Length: 27.5mm, Width: 24.9mm, Thickness: 6.9mm, Weight: 6.25gms

Black flint, possibly collected from the East Coast, possible gunflint, as kindly suggested by the finder. A sub-rectangular flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal surface and with a bulbar ventral surface which is now chipped with a particularly battered zone in the base of the large shallow hollow which resulted. In view of the suggested identification, much of the damage to the flint may have arisen in the course of its use. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1800. Length: 24.3mm, Width: 21.2mm, Thickness: 7mm, Weight: 4.13gms

Glass gemstone. An oval translucent glass stone of biconvex lentoid section, with rhomboid facets on both sides, now smoothed by wear, and with recent chipping along the aris where the sides meet. The tint resembles that of an amethyst, which this is not; the glass is, however, without discernible bubbles, and so may be of fairly recent date. The bifacial working suggests pendant use, presumably framed, and possibly as a necklace or ear ring component. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1750-1850. Length: 21.6mm, Width: 12.1mm, Thickness: 6.8mm, Weight: 2.51gms

Dark blue grey flint gunflint. A square flake, flat on its dorsal side and with a prominent bulb on the ventral. Short scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect follows three thicker edges, with indications of battering from light use along their arises. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1850.

Black flint with cortex, probably collected from the East Coast, gunflint. Sub-rectangular flint with cortex trimmed by multi-directional hard hammer working from the dorsal aspect, and with abrupt scalar retouch along its thicker side also executed from the dorsal aspect. The thinner side is battered by impact from use, and also by light post-depositional damage. The finder suggests this could be a French gunflint. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1700-1850. Length: 24.4mm, Width: 22.4mm, Thickness: 10mm, Weight: 7.32gms.

Dark Grey flint Gunflint. The finder kindly cites WAW-DAC006 as a parallel. Knapped rectangular plano-convex flint with bevelled edges on its convex side, and with impact scars from use at both its ends. For earlier periods this would be used with a firelock musket or wheel lock pistol, for which ignition of the propellant charge was by sparks from a struck flint gripped in the jaws of a holder, rather than the slow match or impregnated cord which was used with most larger weapons such as muskets and hand guns until the later 17th century. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1850. …

Lead and Flint Gunflint (as identified by finder). Rectangular fragment of cast lead sheet of 2.4mm thickness, cut to shape and folded around a small tabular knapped flake of mid grey flint. The fold in the lead bears a curving impression with a hole which may relate to fixing of the flint. The flint is small; a piece of lead may have been used as an economiser to extend its life, as the overall thickness of lead and flint resembles that of the more common and larger gunflints seen by this reporter. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1800. Length: 20.3mm, Width/Height: 16.3mm…
