Object type: BURIN
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: County Durham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete Mesolithic flint Burin. Teardrop in plan, concavo convex in section, tapers to a point with a projecting ridge along the dorsal face. 30% or the surface is cortex therefore a secondary flake. On the distal face there is a prominent bulb of percussion and some bulbar scarring. The dorsal faces have scaled flaking with short semi-abrupt scaled retouch.25% of the right hand end towards the proximal end has short abrupt retouching. There is evidence of burin spall removal from a retouch platform around the point indicating a truncation burin.

County: County Durham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A piece of flint debitage of Mesolithic date, circa 9,000 - 4,000 BC, in the form of a blade. It is a tertiary flake and therefore retains no cortex on its surface. The dorsal face exhibits 5 negative flake scars from previous flake removal. The proximal end has a striking platform and low bulb of percussion, with faint conchoidal ripple marks present on the ventral face. The flint is mid grey-brown in colour with dark grey inclusions. It measures 29.03mm in length, 18.20mm in width, 1.94mm in thickness and weighs 2.18g.

County: County Durham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A group of five flint flakes of probable Mesolithic date (9000-3450 BC). The lithics are sub-rectangular in profile and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surfaces feature multiple negative scars with corresponding arrises. There is some evidence of short, semi-abrupt re touching on multiple edges. One lithic has some cortex, therefore it is a secondary flake, while the others have no cortex and are thus tertiary. The lithics are a variety of colours including light brown, light and dark grey, red and white. The cortex on lithic one is dark grey in colour. Length: 23.70mm, Wi…

A pair of flint scrapers of probable Mesolithic date (9000-3450 BC). The lithics are sub-rectangular in profile and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surfaces of both lithics feature multiple negative scars with corresponding arrises. On the ventral surface of one lithic there is clear evidence of a bulb of percussion with associated cracking ripples. The proximal portions of the lithics have been semi-abruptly retouched. No cortex is present, so both are tertiary. The lithics range in colour from brown to light grey, with light grey/cream inclusions on both. Length: 44.71mm,…

A complete flint awl of Mesolithic date (9000-3450 BC). The lithic is sub-rectangular in profile and flat in section. Both the dorsal and ventral surfaces feature minor negative scars with corresponding arrises. It appears that the lithic has been retouched along both edges to form a point at the distal edge. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. The lithic is predominantly cream in colour with grey inclusions throughout.
