Record ID: NLM-5116F1
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint possible debitage. Four small irregular flakes, all with flakes struck from their dorsal sides; three retains elements of a bulbar ventral surface while the fourth and longest has a tiny bulb at one end of a concave ventral surface. A dense creamy patina suggests all have endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment after their deposition. The finder kindly notes the absence of naturally occurring flint in the vicinity, which has encouraged the consideration of these pieces. Suggested date: Unknown, Late Mesolithic to Neolithic, 7000-2350 BC Combined Weight: 25.76gms

Flint with reformed cortex possible scraper. A long irregular flake with a broad flake struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb at one end of a gently undulating ventral surface. Cortex has reformed over a rounded end, where possible scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect also appears. The opposite end is lightly battered. A dense creamy patina overall suggests the object has endured long exposure to a calcareous environment; orange spots might suggest its incorporation in gravel. The re-formed cortex might suggest an earlier date than the apparently casual working would co…

Object type: BURNT FLINT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fire-cracked flint. A small fragment of patinated flint with the characteristically jagged and hackled surface and deep cracking associated ith intense heat - though it is noted that such effects were wont to occur in recent times, when the burning of stubble was a common agricultural practice. However, this object is accompanied by prehistoric flints, whose date range is advanced for it here, with a later extension offered in precautionary vein. Suggested date: Unknown, Late Mesolithic to Early Bronze Age, 7000-1600 BC. Length: 42mm, Width: 24.9mm, Thickness: 17.2mm, Weight: 19.09gms

Burnt flint. Two small fragments of flint bearing a thick creamy patina suggesting its prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment, and both crazed overall by heating. The smaller chip may have had flakes struck from its dorsal side; the larger does not appear to have been deliberately worked, though it may have incurred adventitious impacts. Suggested date: Unknown, Neolithic to Early Bronze Age, 4000-1600 BC. Combined Weight: 7.62gms

Grey flint with cortex in two out of three cases; possible debitage. Three small thick flakes, all with indications of flakes having been struck from their dorsal surfaces. The largest has a concave ventral surface, the others have bulbar ventral surfaces. The development of a creamy patina over all struck surfaces indicates the objects have endured a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Unknown, Late Mesolithic to Neolithic, 7000-2350BC. Combined Weight: 12.02gms

Pale grey fire-cracked flint. A small chunk of flint crazed overall by intense heat. It is uncertain whether any of the surfaces may have been deliberately struck before this.

County: North Lincolnshire

Red-brown flint with cortex, core. A chunk with broad flakes removed by probably multidirectional hard hammer strike; possibly in discrete episodes, as some struck surfaces appear more weathered than others. This could represent the reuse of a core long after its initial working. Suggested date: Unknown, Late Mesolithic to Early Bronze Age, 7000-1600 BC.

Dark grey flint with cortex spot, scraper. A thick flake with broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulbar ventral surface. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the long curving edge. The material might hint at an earlier date, the trimming of the dorsal side would be apt to Neolithic work, while the retouch may suggest a later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date. Suggested date: Unknown, Late Mesolithic to Early Bronze Age, 7000-1600 BC. Length: 23.5mm, Width: 32.1mm, Thickness: 8.6mm, Weight: 8.10gms

Flint scraper. A small thumbnail scraper with cortex remaining on its dorsal surface and with covering angled scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect. The struck surfaces are covered by dense creamy patina, suggesting prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment, and with orange spotting which may suggest its subsequent incorporation in gravels. The form is usually ascribed to the Early Bronze Age but the condition of the flint might point to an earler date. Suggested date: Unknown, Late Mesolithic to Early Bronze Age,7000-1600 BC.

Flint possible scraper. Triangular-section flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and a conchoidal surface on the ventral. Marks along a long curving edge may represent chipping rather than retouch. The object is covered by dense milky patina which suggests it has endured a long period of exposure. Suggested date: Unknown, Late Mesolithic to Bronze Age, 7000-800 BC. Length: 53.7mm, Width: 28.4mm, Thickness: 14.3mm, Weight: 24.21gms.

County: Lincolnshire

Dark brown-grey flint with cortex or recortification; backed blade. Thick flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and a bulb on the ventral. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a straight edge, probably to form a cutting edge, and continues along the end of the object. The other end is also trimmed. Cortex may be retained along the opposite edge to afford a grip or permit pressure to be brought to bear. However, its appearance is unusual, and it may have begun to reform over a battered long edge opposite that described. Suggested date: Unknown…

County: Lincolnshire

Dark grey flint with cortex, scraper. Nodule fragment with limited patches of milky patina at the sites of primary working, perhaps of Neolithic date, which was followed by a long period of weathering. This surface was nearly removed by subsequent multangular hard hammer working, with limited angled scalar retouch along one aris. There is also some battering along this working edge. The casual execution of reworking may suggest a Bronze Age date for that episode, while a lack of subsequent patination may suggest the object was incorporated into a sealed context shortly after its final…

Object type: MULLER
Broad period: UNKNOWN
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
White heavily patinated flint with cortex, probably from Glacial Drift, possibly a fragment of Debitage reworked as a Muller or grinder. A small sub-rectangular and handy block with crystalline fracturing along all its arises. The flint has been very roughly trimmed by two or three strokes of abrupt hard hammer working in antiquity; such rough work is typical of the Bronze Age. It was then probably abandoned, as subsequent grinding appears to post-date the formation of a dense white patina on all exposed surfaces. This later use seems to have been to grind material with the considerab…

Grey flint Possible debitage; the finder asserts flint does not naturally occur in the area of findspot. The colour and the fractured appearance of one end may alternatively hint that this flint has been fractured by heating. Suggested date: Unknown, Neolithic to Bronze Age, 3500-800 BC.

Flint; one fragment (a) is semi-translucent toffee coloured brown with cortex on one face, the other two (b-c) a pale grey. Debitage. Three flint chips (a-c), all from an area where flint is not believed to occur naturally. The brown flint (a) may have retouch - or incidental damage - on two of its edges, while (c) may be a small flake of working waste. Lengths: a) 22.1mm, b) 20.2mm, and c) 15.6mm. Suggested date: Unknown, Mesolithic to Late Bronze Age, 4500-800BC.

Brittle grey cloudy flint of mediocre quality Possible debitage. Irregular flint with fracture surfaces on all sides; these include one long scar which may indicate the hard hammer removal of a long flake; however, the other sides are struck and broken irregularly, and the sharp arises between these impact scars are so sharp as to suggest a recent origin through plough strike. Suggested date: Unknown, Neolithic to Modern, 3500BC-2000AD. Length: 53mm, Weight: 23.32gms.
