Record ID: NCL-253FE4
Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County Durham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint arrowhead of the Neolithic. The arrowhead is completely knapped, with no natural surfaces of the flint. The blade is leaf-shaped with a trapezoidal tang. The tang was originally longer, but the tip has broken off, leaving a relatively fresh break with little abrading. The abraded edges of the arrowhead were pressure flaked.

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: County Durham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint barbed and tanged arrowhead of the Bronze Age. The arrowhead is triangular in shape with barbs and a tang. The barbs are squarish as is the tang.

A flint blade probably dating to the Neolithic, c. 4000 to 2700 BC. The object is pentagonal in plan with two long parallel sides, a short side joining them at one end and at the opposite side a point. The dorsal side features two parallel faces. There is a possible break on the right when looking at the dorsal side and another break creating the short side. There is some very limited short, scaled retouch at a low angle. The flint is a dark greyish brown in colour. The object is 38.00 mm in length, 13.11 mm in width and 4.13 mm in thickness. The object weighs 2.6g.

The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. The lithic is predominantly cream in colour with grey inclusions throughout. Length: 22.53mm, Width: 13.00mm, Thickness: 2.96mm, Weight: 0.9g.

A group of three flint debitage of probable Mesolithic date (9000-3450 BC). The lithics are sub-rectangular and sub-triangular in profile, and concave-convex in section. On the dorsal surfaces there are a small number of negative scars with corresponding arrises. Upon the ventral surface of one lithic there is a clear bulb or percussion with corresponding cracking ripples, while one also has a number of negative scars along the ventral surface. Two of the lithics have remains of cortex and are therefore secondary, while the other has none and is thus tertiary. The lithics range in …

A group of four flint scrapers of Mesolithic date (9000-3450 BC). The lithics are sub-rectangular in profile and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surfaces of the lithics feature multiple negative scars with corresponding arrises. On the ventral surfaces there is evidence of cracking ripples, although there are no bulbs of percussion. Both the proximal and distal ends of the lithics have been retouched abruptly, creating a flat edge. There is also evidence of minor short retouch on two of the lithics. There is no cortex present and so the lithics are tertiary. The lithics range i…

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.
