County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete napped lithic implement of possible Mesolithic date, circa 7000 - 4000 BC. The implement is a notched blade formed of a tertiary flake which is sub-ovate in plan with a D-shaped section. The ventral surface displays a bulb of percussion and striking platform from which ripples radiate along the length of the flake. The dorsal surface is irregular, displaying three probable prior flake removals. Abrupt, short, sub-parallel retouch is present in a notched area to the right edge of the distal portion. The flint is a light brown/grey colour. The implement is 44.8mm long, 14.6…

County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped lithic implement of probable Mesolithic to Bronze Age date, circa 10,000 - 800 BC. The implement is a piece of debitage, or waste material, produced during the knapping process formed of a tertiary flake. It is sub-rectangular in plan and ovate in section. The dorsal surface displays conchoidal fractures and a bulb of percussion. Three possible flake removals are present on the ventral surfaced denoted by further conchiodal fractures. Possible retouch is present to the right edge of the mesial portion on the ventral surface. The flint is dark orange in colour. It m…

Record ID: YORYM-EBB254
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A natural nodule of flint with small possible blade removals of uncertain date. The nodule is sub-U-shaped with an ovate section and has a mid-grey/brown cortex covering most of the surface. One tip of the nodule displays three parallel negative scars from flake/blade removals. The resulting edge is fairly sharp. It is not possible to determine when the removals occurred. They may be ancient or more recent. The nodule is 92.3mm long, 50mm wide, 37.2mm thick and weighs 200g.

County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete knapped lithic implement of late Neolithic date, circa 2700 BC - 2350 BC. The implement is the distal portion of a polished knife formed from a tertiary flake which is D-shaped in plan having been broken to one end and has a pointed ovate section. The object has been bifacially worked and displays low angle removals. The distal edge has been polished resulting in a smooth curve. The flint is a dark grey colour. The implement is 30mm long, 25.1mm wide, 8.5mm thick and weighs 7.9g.

A complete knapped lithic implement of early Neolithic date, c.4,000 - 2,200 BC. The implement is a flint thumbnail scraper, designed to be held between the thumb and forefinger, formed from a secondary flake which D-shaped in plan and section. The ventral surface is smooth with a bulb of percussion and cracking ripples visible. The dorsal surface exhibits covering scaled removals which are low-angle in the centre and variously semi-abrupt and abrupt at the edges. There is one deep gouge flanked by negative scars extending from the centre to one edge. Some off-white cortex is visible o…

County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped lithic implement of Mesolithic date, c.10,000 - 4,000 BC. The implement is a flint borer formed on a tertiary flake which is sub-triangular in plan and triangular in section. The ventral surface is smooth with a point of impact and bulb of percussion visible. One flattened edge appears to be part of the striking platform. The dorsal surface exhibits three negative flake scars and two arrises. One area of short, semi-abrupt, scaled removals are present at the top of the left edge, narrowing the flint into a point for boring. The flint is off-white and light grey in c…
