County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint plano-convex knife fragment. The pointed end of a knife with a curved dorsal surface bearing covering angled scalar retouch, and with a flat ventral surface. A misty patina has developed over all surfaces including the fractured end, showing the object was broken in antiquity, and has subsequently endured exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age, 2700-1600 BC. Length: 35.6mm, Width: 23.0mm, Thickness: 6.5mm, Weight: 5.19gms

Grey flint, appearing brown under transmitted light, scraper. A tiny chip with broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb at one end of the ventral surface. Initially identified as a fragment of debitage, the magnified view obtained by photographic manipulation for presentation here reveals very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect following the curved end.

Flint possible backed blade. An oval flake with broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, a near-flat ventral surface, and a narrow long flake struck from along one edge of the ventral surface which may have permitted pressure to be exerted on the putative cutting edge opposite. The scalloped or serrated appearance of the cutting edge is perhaps a result of fortuitous edge-on impacts, albeit occuring in antiquity. A dense creamy patina overall suggests the object has subsequently endured a prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC

A possible run of short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect occurs on one part of one side, where the cortex has been trimmed. The finder kindly suggests this may be of Mesolithic or even Palaeolithic date, but the tint of the flint does not appear altered by the passage of the significant period this would require so this reporter would favour a more recent date.

A thick chunk with large broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side by hard hammer, and with its opposite side [not here characterised as ventral as cortex remains on both the sides] stripped by multangular hard hammer working similarly removing large parallel flakes. The appearance of finer retouch probably arises from edge-on impacts and localised crushing of edges may arise from use of the tool. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.
