Record ID: WILT-24E534
Object type: FLAKE

Record ID: LIN-278E83
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint scraper from mottled brown flint. The lithic has approximately 30% cortex remaining on the dorsal surface forming an arc behind the retouched end. The flint has what looks like a short haft element, which in turn makes the lithic look like a rough out for an arrowhead however the ventral surface is too concave for it to have been possible to form into an arrowhead. The only retouch on the object is at the distal end. The lithic might have been hafted and used as a scraper or chisel.

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint Neolithic leaf-shaped bifacial point, probably 'laurel-leaf.' Thin and relatively finely worked for a laurel-leaf, though too large for an East Anglian leaf-shaped arrowhead. It is complete aprt from slight recent damage, mainly on one edge, exposing medium-dark grey flint under a pale -medium grey patina. It is 98mm in length, 41mm in width and 8.7mm in maximum thickness.

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete oblique arrowhead of a grey coloured flint. The translucent grey flint is almost completely covered with an opaque light grey patina.

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint blade, probably Mesolithic or early Neolithic in date. At the proximal end is the small striking platform, below which on the ventral side is a small bulb of percussion and pronounced bulbar scar. Ripples radiate down the ventral side. The two long edges are fairly parallel and there are two main longitudinal ridges on the dorsal side and an area of nodule cortex on one edge. The slightly transparant light greyish-brown flint has a mid gloss patina. Dimensions: 34.89mm by 14.18mm by 3.66mm Weight: 2.81

A retouched flint flake, probably dating from the Neolithic period or early Bronze Age. At the proximal end is the striking platform, part of which appears to have broken off, below which on the ventral side is the bulb of percussion. Ripples radiate down the ventral side. There are flaking scars on the dorsal side and one lateral edge has been retouched by pressure-flaking. The mid greyish-brown flint has a mid gloss patina.

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete segment of a snapped flint blade of probable late Mesolithic date (6500BC - 3500BC). The flint tool is sub-rectangular in plan and sub-triangular in cross section. It measures 24.7mm length, 16.4mm width, is 6.3mm (max) thick and weighs 2.23 grams. The flint blade probably consists of the upper and central part of the blade and a trimmed bulb of percussion can be seen on the reverse face. The lower part of the blade has been snapped and trimmed or reworked. The two long vertical sides of the blade have received relatively little retouched. The densest area of retouch is at t…

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small piece of flint debitage (chunk or chip) probably dating from the Neolithic period 3500 - 2100 BC). The piece of flint is irregular in plan and profile and exhibits several areas of working. However, this work does not comprise of any tool type and probably represent waste from tool production. The flint itself is a poor quality with several flaws and also a hinge fracture. This type of flint is common to the Shropshire / Welsh Marches area where flint deposits are either glacial or riverine. The flint measures 15.8mm length, 12.7mm width, is 10.6mm thick and weighs 2.78 grams.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint scraper of probable Neolithic date (3500 - 2100 BC). The flake is irregular in plan and sub-triangular in cross section. The flake measures 48.8mm length, 37.9mm width, is 12.3mm thick and weighs 22 grams. The bulb of percussion on the reverse of the flake is complete and there is evidence of a number of hinge fractures on the opposite (front) surface. It is likely that this flake was a by-product (or waste flake / debitage) of tool making as there is a small amount of cortex (rough outer skin of the flint nodule) on the artefact. This area cortex covers less than 15% of the tota…
