Greenish-brown to toffee coloured flint debitage. An irregular flake with two lakes struck from its dorsal side, a bulb at one end of a rippled ventral surface, and a positive hinge fracture at the other. Short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect defines a notch on one side, apt to the trimming of a shaft, and permitting an alternative identification as an improvised hollow scraper. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC Length: 38.5mm, Width: 22.0mm, Thickness: 6.2mm, Weight: 4.31gms

Grey [appearing honey-coloured under transmitted light] semi-translucent flint of high quality; leaf arrowhead, as kindly identified by the finder. A thin elongated oval flake with narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, and with a flat ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from both the dorsal and ventral aspects follows all of one long side and short adjoining parts at either end of the opposite long edge. The bilateral retouch is an unusual feature, and may have been intended to improve the already considerable penetrative efficiency of the arrowhead. Suggested…

Grey flint [appearing brownish under transmitted light] possible plano-convex knife. A sub-triangular flake with two broad and narrow flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb at one end of a slightly concave ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the edges of the object, with an indentation perhaps smoothed by wear on the shortest side, and a short [11mm] notch on one of the long edges. The finder kindly suggests a function for the object as an arrowhead; this reporter would consider it a little large and irregular in its thickness to se…

Grey-green [appearing toffee coloured under transmitted light] flint, possibly collected from the East Coast, plano-convex knife. A thick crescentic flake of plano-convex section with invasive angled scalar retouch along the dorsal side following its curving edge. The ventral surface is effectively flat with a bulb at one end. A crisply defined flat back to the blade is probably an original feature enabling pressure to be brought to bear on its cutting edge, as is a matching flat terminal at one end of the blade.

Pale brown and black flint, the latter with cortex spot, debitage. Three small flakes of irregular form, all with broad flakes struck from t heir dorsal sides and each with a bulbar or slightly concave ventral surface. The lack of surface patina may suggest these have recently been disturbed from a sealed context. The object illustrated at the left might have seen use as an oblique arrowhead, a later Neolithic form. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Combined weight: 7.34gms

Slight misty patina developed, suggesting a limited period of exposure to a calcareous environment.

Dark grey (dark brown under transmitted light) flint with cortex strip, scraper. A thick flake with broad flakes trimmed from its dorsal side and a bulbar ventral surface. Misty patina has developed on both sides, though more thickly on one, suggesting some differential level of exposure to a calcareous environment. This has then been removed, by a positive hinge fracture at one side, and across the dorsal face in large areas, suggesting working by angled hard hammer strike. There is also a strip of patina trimmed from along one side of the ventral surface. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4…

Grey flint with cortex debitage. A triangular chunk with broad and narrow flakes struck from its dorsal side and with an unevenly broken ventral surface. The marks of battering appear along two arises and at its narrower end. The flint was [?]subsequently lightly burnt, resulting in crazing which appears only on the struck surfaces. The flint retains a grey tint, in contrast to most of the heavily patinated assemblage it was reported with, which may hint at its subsequent inclusion in a sealed and non-calcareous context.

Flint with cortex core. A rounded nodule fragment with broad and narrow parallel flakes struck from it by probably unidirectional working, though with cortex retained on a remaining curved surface. The aris between the struck surfaces and the angled striking platform is battered, suggesting the core was put to some other use as a pounding tool before it was discarded.

Pale grey flint debitage. A flake with long parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a concave ventral surface. A light misty patina has formed over all surfaces, though this is significantly less dense than that observed on most of the similar material recovered and reported from the same location at the same time, arising from exposure to a calcareous environment. The post-depositional experience of this object differs from that of much of the rest; the removal of patina from this example has arisen from adventitious damage.

Record ID: NLM-12AA95
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint debitage. Six small flakes or fragments, with narrow parallel flakes struck from their dorsal surfaces; the ventral surfaces are mostly slightly concave, and a tiny bulb appears on one larger and one smaller fragments [to left, top and bottom]. A dense creamy patina over all struck surfaces suggests the objects have subsequently endured long exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Combined Weight: 10.81gms

Record ID: NLM-12A2C5
Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint with cortex strip probable core fragment. A large chunk with long parallel flakes removed by initially unidirectional working from a flat striking platform. Though the form may have initially have been, or intended to be, pyramidal; either casual working or damage has left the larger part of the surface unevenly shattered. A dense creamy patina over all struck surfaces suggests the object has subsequently endured long exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Height: 47.9mm, Width: 41.2mm, Thickness: 27mm, Weight: 47.67gms

Record ID: NLM-1299C9
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Burnt flint scraper fragment. A fragment with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by hard hammer and with a bulbar ventral surface. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect appears to have followed a curved edge. Heavy battering has also left multiply layered spalls on the opposite end. The putative working surface is broken at either end, and fine crazing is carried throughout the object, which is now a pale grey tint overall. This discarded tool has obviously fetched up in an intense fire. Suggested date: Early Bronze age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 37.8mm, Wid…

Flint core. Pyramidal core with long narrow parallel flakes detached by unidirectional working from a single oval striking platform. The surface bears dense creamy patina overall, suggesting it has endured a long period of exposure to a calcareous environment.
