Flint possible knife fragment. A narrow flake with long narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a flat ventral surface. A dense creamy patina with orange spots suggests it has subsequently endured a prolonged period of exposure to a calcareous environment, and possibly incorporation into gravel.

Grey flint knife. A trapezoid flake with broad and narrow flakes struck from its dorsal side, and with a bulb and ripples on its ventral surface. One end may then have received short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect along a curved end. A misty patina then formed over all surfaces, suggesting the object was discarded and endured a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. The patina was subsequently removed along one straight edge by short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect. This represents a flake reused after its initial deposition; the Neolithic period…

Short abrupt retouch executed from the ventraol aspect follows opposed long edges; the appearance of further retouch executed, as is more usual, from the dorsal aspect probably arises from a combination of light battering and fortuitous edge-on impacts.

One end is defined by a striking platform, and the other by angled retouch executed from the dorsal aspect. The entire object bears a buff-stained patina, possibly from the incorporation of the object in gravels with a ferruginous content. This surface coloration is distinct from anything observed on the other flints reported from the same location, and this might even represent an antiquity discovered, curated or used in the …

Grey flint with cortex, knife.

Invasive angled retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the curved edge of the flake, with its butt left at the bulbar end. These retouched areas then acquired a pale grey patina, indicating the object was finally deposited in a calcareous environment. Interruption of p…

Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows one long edge towards a curved end, and also forms a serrated edge on the opposite long edge which is so fine that it is more easily felt than observed. A complete lack of patination indicates the object was deposited in a non-calcareous environment or that it has recent…

Grey flint with cortex, possibly collected from the East Coast, probable knife. Thick flake with two broad flakes removed from its ventral side by hard hammer strike. A period sufficient for the struck surfaces to acquire a yellowish iron-stained cast ensued.

Flint knife. Oval-ended thin flake with broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulbar ventral surface. What appears at first sight to be a broken end is actually the site of a positive hinged fracture. Chips along the putative parallel cutting edges are the result of probably fortuitous impacts in antiquity. Dense creamy patina extends over all surfaces, including the hinge fracture, suggesting the object is complete, and that it has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment after its deposition. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500. Length…

County: North Lincolnshire

Translucent grey flint of good quality; knife. A curved flake with two broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb and concave ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows one straight edge. A complete lack of patina might suggest this object was incorporated into a sealed context shortly after its deposition, and that at all events it was not in contact with a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Length: 27.7mm, Width: 15.5mm, Thickness: 5.5mm, Weight: 2.26gms

Dark brown flint possible knife fragment. A chip from a lunate knife, with a broad flake struck from its dorsal side and with a bulbar ventral surface. Long narrow parallel flakes were struck by angled retouch executed from the dorsal aspect, alongside the putative cutting edge. The opposite edge appears lightly battered; when the flint is turned over, a series of conchoidal scars give the appearance of working to form a notch. However, these arise from heavy impacts on the edge, rather than working towards the edge; they may be fortuitous, or may arise from damage while in [an undet…

Pale honey-coloured translucent flint of good quality with cortex spot; knife. Thin flake with broad parallel flakes removed from the dorsal side by angled hard hammer working, and with a bulb at one end of the ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect appears at one, and possibly both, ends - at the broader end this may have followed accidental breakage of an originally longer blade. It may also follow the long convex edge, though this might be damage arising from its use. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500 BC. Length: 40mm, Width: 22mm, Th…

Grey flint knife. Long thin flake with long narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a slightly concave ventral surface. Misty patina has developed over all struck surfaces, suggesting a period of exposure to a calcareous environment after deposition. The patina is disrupted by either very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect to refresh cutting edges, or by fortuitous damage. A further short concave notch is formed by very short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect, again removing patina. The Later Mesolithic could accommodate both primary…
