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: Published Find published
A complete chert microlith probable scraper of Late Mesolithic date (6300-4300 BC). The lithic is sub-rectangular. The dorsal surface is convex and contains six predominant negative scars with corresponding arrises. Both the proximal and distal ends have been abruptly blunted, the distal end having a cylindrical recession, probably naturally occurring within the chert, running into the body of the lithic. The left and right hand edges have fine, semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is predominantly flat with a small bulb of percussion situated at the proximal end. The chert is …

A complete chert blade of Late Mesolithic date (6300-4300 BC). The lithic is sub-triangular. The dorsal surface is convex and contains four predominant negative scars with corresponding arrises and evidence of hinged flake removal within the mesial portion. Both the proximal and distal ends have been abruptly blunted. There is a minor amount of semi-abrupt retouch along the distal left hand edge. The ventral surface is slightly concave with a small bulb of percussion situated at the proximal end. The chert is cream in colour. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary…
