  • Thumbnail image of YORYM-AFAEC5

Record ID: YORYM-AFAEC5
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint scraper of Mesolithic date (9500-4300 BC). The lithic is sub-rectangular in profile with an abruptly blunted proximal end. The dorsal surface is flaked at the distal and left hand edges, the remainder of the surface is covered in cortex, this scraper is therefore a primary flake. There is fine retouch to the distal, left and right hand sides. The ventral surface is smooth and contains one negative scar at the distal end and ripples of percussion running from the distal to the proximal end. The flint is a light grey in colour with cream inclusions throughout. The cor…

Object type: TRANSVERSE ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint transverse arrowhead dating to the late Neolithic. The arrowhead has two pressure flaked worked edges that meet at a right angle, with working on both faces of the arrowhead. The arrowhead is trianglar in shape with the shortest (worked) edge being straight and the other two edges having a slight curve. The arrowhead weighs 2.92g and measures 37mm in length, 25mm in width and 5.5mm in thickness.

Six Mesolithic waste flakes, blade flakes appear to have been removed, but these flakes could be Neolithic or Bronze Age. Each flake has a bulb of percussion, a striking platform and multiple flakes removed from the surface. There is evidence of retouch on all of the flakes. 1) 7.3g 38.6mm x 30.4mm x 7.1mm 2) 7.3g 43.5mm x 26.1mm x 8.6mm 3) 3.9g 38.9mm x 17.4mm x 6.7mm 4) 4.2g 30.3mm x 22.8mm x 6.2mm 5) 6.4g 31.8mm x 24mm x 9.4mm 6) 5.6g 38.3mm x 25.4mm x 5.9mm

Record ID: LANCUM-187802
Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint implement, hardly patinated, probably an early Neolithic laurel-leaf shaped flint arrowhead (comp. Bond 2004, fig. 5.120). The object is in very good condition and hardly patinated. It was knapped from brown opaque, translucent flint and shows retouch on both ventral and dorsal faces as well as around the edges. The flint is gently curved and one edge seems to bear more retouch marks than the other. This suggests that although having the correct shape for a laurel-leaf shaped arrowhead, it could also have been a scraper and of slightly later Neolithic or even Early Bronze Age da…

A worked waste flint flake, which is probably Mesolithic in date. It is likely that this piece was once a mesolithic core and then reworked. The bulb of percussion and striking platform both been removed. Multiple blades and bladelets have been removed from its surface. The flint has one bulbous end, which extends into a rectangular sectioned projection. It has been formed from a light grey flint, with patches of lighter and darker material within the flint matrix. There is some iron staining on the surface of the flint.

A heavily utilised Mesolithic core. The bulb of percussion and striking platform have both been removed. Multiple blades and bladelets have been removed from its surface. It would appear that an attempt to rejuvenate this core failed as the upper surface bears the scar of a hinge fracture. There is evidence around the edge of the platform for platform preparation. It has been formed from a light grey flint, with patches of lighter and darker material within the flint matrix.

A Neolithic waste flint flake or possible crude scraper, it has been formed from a light brown flint, with creamy-white flaws within the flake matrix.
