County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint with cortex strip/spot, debitage. Four small flakes, three with long narrow parallel flakes struck from their dorsal sides and with flat or, in one case, concave ventral surfaces. Misty patina on struck surfaces suggest these flakes were subsequently exposed to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC Combined Weight: 5.60gms

Flint, some with cortex, debitage. Four small flakes, all with broad flakes struck from their dorsal sides. Three have bulbar ventral surfaces; one, of a honey coloured flint or chert, has a flat and finely rippled ventral surface. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC Combined Weight: 24.64gms

Object type: PLANO CONVEX KNIFE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Honey tinted flint plano-convex knife fragment. Tip of a small plano-convex knife. Long narrow parallel flakes have been struck from the dorsal side while there is a small bulb at the end of a slightly concave ventral surface. Slight misty patina developed, suggesting a limited period of exposure to a calcareous environment. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the converging long edges, removing this light patina. Broken, probably recently, at its wider end. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC Length: 20.1mm, Width: 11.5mm, Thickness: 3.8m…

Dark brown flint debitage. A small flake with long narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a markedly concave ventral surface. Chips on the latter appear likely to have arisen from fortuitous recent edge-on impacts. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC Length: 34.4mm, Width: 13.5mm, Thickness: 5.8mm, Weight: 3.36gms

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Burnt flint debitage. A small chunk with broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, and with an irregular ventral surface. The object has accumulated a dense creamy patina from exposure to a calcareous environment, and has then been crazed throughout by heating. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC Length: 29.5mm, Width: 24.7mm, Thickness: 10.7mm, Weight: 9.32gms

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A retouched flake of Mesolithic date, 7000 - 4000 BC. The flake is a mottled pale grey colour, and is sub-rectangular in shape. Two narrow flakes have been struck from the dorsal side, with a third flake removed towards the top of the flake. This has been further worked towards the distal end. The concave ventral face is smooth with a low bulb of percussion. There is semi-abrupt, sub-parallel, very short retouch along the left mesal to form a scraper or small saw-like implement. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000 - 4000 BC. Length: 43.2mm, Width: 12.6mm, Thickness: 5.5mm. Weight: 3.7g.
