Record ID: NLM-D6758C
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark grey [appears brownish under transmitted light] flint debitage. A thick flake with long parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a hollowed ventral surface with prominent ripple marks. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect occupies part of one facet, but, unless grinding or battering at the adjacent end is associated, this reworking appears to have been abandoned. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 33.8mm, Width: 15.6mm, Thickness: 7.9mm, Weight: 4.64gms

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey-green flint with cortex probable tranchet axehead. A thick triangular flake with cortex lightly trimmed from the dorsal side, though some of its loss should be ascribed to adventitious edge-on impacts. The ventral side bears the scars of covering multi-directional angled scalar hard hammer working, with the broader end of the object sharpened by the removal of one large flake. Subsequent angled scalar retouch either tidied or sharpened this cutting edge. Suggested date: Early Mesolithic, 10,000-7000 BC. Length: 82.6mm, Width: 43.4mm, Thickness: 19.2mm, Weight: 49.64gms.

Dark chocolate brown flint scraper. A thick flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by hard hammer strike, and with a prominent bulb and adjacent concavity on its ventral surface.

Grey flint debitage. A tiny struck flake with long parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a slightly concave and rippled ventral surface. Reported long with a group of Late Mesolithic flakes and a core from the same broad location, but this is a slightly different flint from the rest of the group. A very slight misting of surface patina may suggest this was exposed to a calcareous environment, but for a relatively short time. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC.

Dark brown flint with cortex, debitage. Four flakes of distinctively coloured flint reported together as from the same location, together with a Late Mesolithic core (NLM-318B30). The characteristics of this group include hard-hammer trimming of cortex, the removal of parallel flakes, and in one case a markedly concave ventral surface. These are all consistent with an origin in the same episode of working with a selected non-local flint. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Combined Weight: 24.44gms

The ventral surface is trimmed by covering angled scalar hard hammer retouch. The thin edges of the tool are battered, presumably by its use, and a series of chips appearing on both surfaces may suggest recurrent edge-on impact was a feature of this use.

Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect defines a triangular point to one side of the object; the other side of the point bears serrations so fine they are more easily felt than observed.

A large thin oval flake with covering angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect, and with invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect on one side. The lower or butt end of the arrowhead is lost to a recent break. The broad blade would maximise blood loss from a quarry, weakening it and enabling dogs and hunters to follow its spoor.

Flint probable arrowhead. A sub-triangular flake with broad and narrow flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb at one end of a wavy ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect follows one of the convergent long edges.

The forming of sharp edges indeed appears deliberate, and the object is appropriately lightweight. However, its wavy profile might have impeded flight were this to be mounted on a shaft.

Dark grey to black flint, plano-convex knife. A thick flake with covering angled scalar retouch across its dorsal side and with a flat ventral surface. The finder notes the form of the object resembles an arrowhead, though it is too thick and massy to have served as such. This form may arise from battering in antiquity at one side of one end, and the more recent loss of an adjacent chip. The dorsal surface bears a flecking of white patina, and the ventral surface bears a denser spread of similar markings.

Black flint [appearing dark brown under transmitted light] probable scraper. A small thick flake with broad and mainly parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb on the ventral surface. The butt of the putative tool is concave. The appearance of very fine retouch executed from the ventral aspect may be the misleading result of multiple adventitious edge-on impacts rather than purposive working. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 18.9mm, Width: 15.0mm, Thickness: 5.4mm, Weight: 1.36gms

Grey flint with cortex spot, possibly collected from the East Coast, knife. A flake with a concave scar where a thick flake has been removed from the dorsal side by hard hammer strike, and with a bulbar ventral surface. A thin misty patina has developed over struck surfaces, suggesting the object then endured a limited period of exposure to a calcareous environment. This patina was disrupted by short angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect and following a short straight edge. This appears to represent the making of an improvised and ephemeral tool from an old fragment of…

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint debitage. A large curved flake with broad and narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, and with a concave ventral surface. The surface bears dense buff-to-cream coloured patina overall, suggesting it has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment. The ventral surface bears metallic scratches. The finder reports the object was incorporated in the gravel base of an excavated Iron Age or Romano-British ditch, and he infers that the scratches are from the trowel cleaning of the ditch bottom. His own researches suggest the object form may be of Middle Palaeolit…
