Record ID: NLM-94E1D8
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pale grey flint scraper. A thin sub-triangular flake with long parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb at one end of its ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect forms a rounded notch in a pre-existing concave side. Misty patina suggests the object was exposed to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Length: 36.8mm, Width: 21.9mm, Thickness: 5.0mm, Weight: 3.51gms

County: North Lincolnshire

Grey flint debitage. A large flake with broad flakes removed from its dorsal side by hard hammer strike; the ventral surface is bulbar, with a positive hinge fracture along its longest straight edge. The struck surfaces have accumulated patches of misty patina suggesting the object was exposed to a calcareous environment. Thick cortex has formed over the struck surface on the dorsal side and has subsequently flaked away; probably due to water rolling in a riverside location. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 41mm, Width: 50.4mm, Thickness: 7.3mm, Weight: 15.23gms

Grey flint scraper. A small chip with broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with an originally concave ventral surface. Angled scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect follows a curved edge, leaving a partial striking platform from earlier working as a butt. Discontinuous patches of thick creamy patina on this side only may suggest a subsequent period of exposure to a calcareous environment, and a presumably abrasive episode thereafter which has in part removed it.

Dark opaque chocolate brown flint, possibly collected from the East Coast; debitage. A thick flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by multangular hard hammer strike, and with a markedly concave ventral surface. Flint of this distinctive tint is occasionally reported from this region, where grey flint predominates, is usually of earlier date, and is sometimes worked exceptionally well.

Grey flint with cortex debitage. Two flakes, one larger [length 43.5mm] and of sub-triangular shape, the other smaller [length: 21.7mm]. Both have had broad flakes struck from their dorsal sides by hard hammer, and both have slightly concave ventral surfaces. The larger flake bears thick white patina indicating it has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment. The smaller flake lacks this, and was perhaps in a sealed context until recently. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Combined Weight: 5.72gms

Grey flint with cortex debitage. Three small flakes. One has ancient creamy patina so thick as to constitute cortex, which has developed over previously struck surfaces, to be itself removed by subsequent hard hammer impact. This and another, similar, flake have a bulbar ventral surface over which misty patina indicates exposure to a calcareous environment. A third flake bears scars from the removal of broad flakes from its dorsal side and a flat ventral surface. In this case, only one end of the object bears misty patina suggesting exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date…

Grey translucent flint of good quality with cortex strip, appearing honey coloured under transmitted light; backed blade. A small narrow flake with long parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a small bulb at one end of a slightly concave ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect may follow one long edge, though these small scars might have arisen from adventitious impacts. The retention of cortex on the opposite long edge, however, may show this to be deliberate. There is no patina, in contrast to most of the accompanying material. Sugge…

Grey flint with cortex, core. A chunk with long parallel flakes removed by probably unidirectional hard hammer working. White misty patina has developed over struck surfaces, suggesting the object endured exposure to a calcareous environment after its deposition. This is lost to subsequent adventitious impacts.

Grey flint with cortex, scraper. A small thick chunk with parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, trimming some cortex, and with an originally bulbar ventral surface. The latter received further trimming removing narrow parallel flakes, followed by long angled retouch executed from the ventral aspect following a curving edge. The relict cortex may have been retained to facilitate use of the tool. Misty patina indicates the object was exposed to a calcareous environment after its deposition.

Record ID: NLM-2F6994
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pale honey-coloured flint with reformed cortex patch; lithic implement. A thin flake with larger flakes struck from its dorsal side, one scar patinated but the rest not, and defining a triangular point. The ventral side has a bulb at one side [as viewed here]. Very short abrupt retouch follows the concave edge on one side of the point, producing 7 tiny indentations per cm, so a serrated cutting edge lies on one side of a delicate point. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 22.3mm, Width: 29.0mm, Thickness: 4.8mm, Weight: 2.26gms

Record ID: NLM-2F5B86
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint, appearing brown under transmitted light; scraper. A thumbnail scraper with a hollowed dorsal surface and corresponding bulbar ventral surface, providing a convenient thumb rest. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved edge opposite the bulb. A crack running diagonally across the object may represent recent damage. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 24.2mm, Width: 34mm, Thickness: 9.1mm, Weight: 6.51gms

Record ID: NLM-2F5156
Object type: BACKED BLADE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint, appearing brown under transmitted light, with cortex spot and reformed cortex; probable backed blade. A thick flake with covering angled scalar retouch on its dorsal side and with bulbar ventral surface. A straight flat edge bears thin cortex which appears to have re-formed over a previously struck surface. It may have been retained to permit pressure to be exerted on the cutting edge. As this surface may itself have been formed by deliberate working, this would imply a significant lapse of time during which the unfinished object or its parent nodule was exposed to a calc…

Record ID: NLM-2F4373
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark grey flint, appearing brown under transmitted light, scraper. An oval flake with a flat ventral surface with a bulb at one end - the butt of the tool - and covering angled scalar hard hammer retouch across its dorsal side. Light battering appears discontinuously around the curved edge. A concave chip on the ventral surface appears to have resulted from edge-on impact, probably fortuitous. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 40mm, Width: 37.4mm, Thickness: 8.3mm, Weight: 15.26gms
