Record ID: NLM-34D8E2
Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: North East Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Opaque grey flint, patinated on the ventral side only. Flint Knife fragment. There are four long parallel flake removal scars on the dorsal aspect conferring an angular plano-convex section, and part of a bulb of percussion on the ventral. Broken at one or both ends. The partial serration of the cutting edges is almost certainly a result of fortuitous damage. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500 BC. Length: 39.1mm, Width: 23.9mm, Thickness: 5.8mm, Weight: 7.53gms.

Honey coloured semi-translucent flint with cortex. Possible saw fragment. Long flake with two long parallel flake or cortex removal scars on its dorsa aspect, and a bulb of percussion and ripples on the ventral. Fine pressure flaking executed from both sides produced a finely serrated and probably subsequently worn cutting edge along the convex curve of one side; the more prominent flaking opposite this is the result of fortuitous impacts. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500 BC. Length: 32.5mm, Width: 17.3mm, Thickness: 4.2mm, Weight: 3.45gms

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: North East Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark brown flint of high quality with cortex. Scraper. Possibly a nosed scraper, of plano convex form achieved by pressure flaking of cortex from around the curved edge, and the detaching of the flint from core, though the order in which these tasks were executed is uncertain. The bulb of percussion is lost, probably to recent damage. The dark brown tint of the flint is unusual for tools found in northern Lincolnshire, though this reporter has seen well-made Early Neolithic tools of similar material in the more southerly part of the county. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. …

Pale grey translucent flint of high quality with cortex. Debitage; flake with a flake removal scar from shallow angled hard hammer working removing cortex on the dorsal aspect, and with a low bulb of percussion and ripples on the ventral side from the striking of flake from core.

White patinated flint - on the dorsal side - with a blue tint with cloudy white patina on the ventral. The dorsal aspect bears a pair of adjacent flake removal scars of possibly natural origin along with a break at one end, but a bulb of percussion on the ventral side suggests at least the subsequent investigation of its potential for working. The Neolithic period could accommodate both episodes in its long span. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 39mm, Width: 22.6mm, Thickness: 7.5mm, Weight: 5.32gms.

Toffee cloloured flint or chert of indifferent quality with a tiny patch of cortex. Probable Scraper. This object may be made from a slice of a rod-shaped nodule, and is of gently concavo-convex form.

Toffee coloured clouded and opaque flint. Knife. Narrow rod shaped blade. Four very long parallel flake removal scars on the dorsal aspect confer an angular plano-convex profile; very faint rippling on the ventral side shows where the flake was detached from a core. Some slight abrasions along the edge have been smoothed. Though the object has a glossy surface overall, possibly a result of curation in antiquity, the context could equally suggest this appealing finish to be the result of wave action. Kevin Leahy kindly comments as follows: 'An interesting object. Without retouch the…

Black glossy flint of high quality with cortex, perhaps collected on the East Coast. Debitage. Flake with two long parallel flake or cortex removal scars on its dorsal; aspect, a prominent striking platform, and a prominent bulb or percussion on the ventral side.

Dark Mottled Brown Flint of good quality, cf no. 3. Saw. Long plano-convex flake with long parallel flake removal scars on its convex dorsal aspect, a bulb of percussion at one end on the ventral aspect where the flake was removed from core. Fine pressure flaked retouch, mainly executed from the dorsal aspect, extends almost all round the flake, conferring a very finely serrated edge. The quality of both the material selected and its working, especially the controlled removal of long flakes, suggests an Early Neolithic date.

Grey semi-translucent Flint of high quality. Saw. Flake with long hard hammer flake removal scars across all of the dorsal aspect, and with a marked bulb of percussion on the ventral aspect where it has been removed from the core. Subsequent working was probably pressure flaking around the edges executed from the dorsal aspect. This is part of a small group of objects of apparently similar function - perhaps the cutting of skin or sinew - reported from the same location, perhaps elements of a specialist tool kit lost together. This suggests the group deserves to be considered as a fin…

Dark mottled brown Flint of good quality, cf. NLM-FEE5D1 Saw, of sub-triangular plano-convex section along its blade, which is broken at one end, probably in antiquity and possibly deliberately. A long flake bears two long flake removal scars on its dorsal aspect, and a very pronounced bulb of percussion on the ventral side at its wider end. The 'bulb' describes a forty-five degree angled turn, giving a heavier handle end to the tool. The removal of a further long flake parallel to the flakes removed from the dorsal aspect gives a flat back as one edge, and would serve as finger of …

Record ID: NLM-749CCA
Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: North East Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Iron stained flint possible hand axe. A sub-trapezoid nodule trimmed on all sides by hard hammer working which has removed large flakes. There is also a limited zone of battering or crushing at either end. The appearance of retouch noted by the finder may in most cases be ascribed to casual impacts rather than purposeful working. These scars, however, partake of the stained tint of the surface of the object, and must accordingly have arisen in deep antiquity. The edge or aris between faces is usually crisp. Suggested date: Middle to Upper Palaeolithic, 150,000-10,000 BC. Length: 90…
