Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A scraper of probable Neolithic date, 4000 - 2350 BC. The scraper is formed from a secondary flake. There is a small amount of cortex remaining at the proximal end, where there is the striking platform. The flake is mottled grey in colour. On the dorsal face there is semi-abrupt, semi-parallel extensive retouch at the distil end. A flake has been removed towards the right mesal, to facilitate holding the scraper between the thumb and the first index finger. The ventral face is smooth with a low bulb of percussion. Length: 26.6mm, Width: 19.5mm and Thickness: 7.1mm. Weight: 5.2gm

Dark grey flint with possibly re-former cortex, possibly collected from the East Coast; scraper. An oval flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a convex ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the curving edge, with the area of cortex retained as a butt. A fresh grey tint to the flint may suggest this object has recently been disturbed from a sealed context. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 28.9mm, Width: 27.5mm, Thickness: 8.8mm, Weight: 9.01gms

Flint possible scraper. A trapezoid flake with broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a lightly convex ventral surface. An angled wedge-shaped end was perhaps formed by hard hammer strike executed from the dorsal aspect, and the grooves formed by the initial working may have afforded a thumb rest were this a working face. Dense creamy patina suggests the object has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment. It has subsequently been water-rolled.

Flint possible scraper. A flake with broad and narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, a positive hinge fracture at its narrower end, and with a slightly concave ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows one end edge. Subsequently chipped around its edges.

Flint scraper. A small irregular flake with broad and narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, and with a bulbar ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect forms a curving lightly hollowed edge on one side, with similar treatment of a shorter adjacent side. A dense creamy patina suggest the object has subsequently endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment, while light orange spotting may hint at its subsequent incorporation into gravels.

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
