Record ID: YORYM-6EF50F
Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint flake. This is a can be classified as a secondary flake as much but not all of the dorsal surface is covered with cortex. From the appearance of the dorsal surface, it seems that a small flake and larger flake that partly overlapped this one have been removed from the original cobble prior to this flake being struck. The proximal end is flat and smooth. The ventral surface features a bulb of percussion and weak ripple marks towards the distal end. This suggests that this flint was struck with a soft (bone) hammer. The flake has a feather termination. The flint appears yello…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint blade. This is a tertiary flake with no cortex remaining. The point of percussion is visible on the striking platform at the proximal end. The ventral surface does not have a prominent bulb of percussion and the ripple marks are weak. This suggests that this flint was struck with a soft (bone) hammer. The dorsal face has two ridges running parallel to the width of the blade. Between the ridges, about half way along the length of the blade, there is some negative scaring where earlier blades have been removed from the same core. The parallel ridges and the dimension of this …

County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A tertiary flint flake. Sub circular in plan with a hinge termination. The ventral surface features a bulb of percussion with a bulbal scar and ripples resulting from the concoidal fracture. The visibility of these features suggests the use of a hard hammer in knapping. Therefore this flake probably dates from the late Neolithic to the Early Bronze Age. The dorsal surface features concoidal ripples running at right angles to the ventral surface. The grid reference has been written in marker pen on this surface. The left edge is thicker and irregular. The flint tapers to a thin sect…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint core which probably dates from the late Neolithic to the Bronze Age. The core is discoidal with flakes having been removed from multiple faces. It appears that knapping has originally taken place from two locations on opposite side of the core, or possibly opposite sides of the same platform. That or those platforms have then been removed by knapping across the width of the core. This means that none of the original striking platforms are visible. A range of flakes of irregular size and shape, a mixture of narrow and broader flakes, appear to have been removed from the c…

A retouched flint flake, probably of Neolithic date, about 4000 - 2350 BC. It is of light grey, translucent flint. It is a secondary flake with cortex surviing on the left edge. In plan it is sub-rectangular; in section it is a pointed oval. There are areas of retouch along the right edge but these are not visible along the entire edge as it has sustained some damage since deposition in the soil. The retouch is short, semi-abrupt and sub-parallel. The flake is 27.9mm long, 19.8mm wide and 5.5mm thick. It weighs 2.68gm.

A complete flint thumbnail scraper of Neolithic date (3500-2100 BC). The lithic is sub-ovate in plan and concavo-convex in section. The dorsal surface retains a minor amount of cortex along the left hand edge and has four predominant negative scars with corresponding arrises. The distal and right hand edges have fine semi-abrupt retouch and the distal end and short parallel flake removal. The ventral surface is concave with a small bulb of percussion situated at the proximal end with a shallow negative scar situated on top. The lithic is a secondary flake. The flint is light brown…

A complete flint disk scraper of Neolithic date (3500-2100 BC). The lithic is sub-ovate in plan and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surface retains a large amount of cortex at the proximal end and has rough, semi-abrupt retouch along all other edges. The distal end has deep negative scars due to partial flaking in a scaled pattern. The ventral surface also retains a large amount of cortex at the proximal end, all other edges have short scaled flake removals. The lithic is a secondary flake. The flint is a dark grey in colour with cream inclusions throughout. The cortex is a lig…

A complete knapped lithic implement of early Neolithic date, circa 4000 - 3500 BC. The implement is a scraper formed from a secondary flake which is ovate with a D-shaped section. The ventral surface is relatively smooth with a surviving bulb of percussion and striking platform while the dorsal surface is irregular with numerous flakes having been removed. Three distinct areas of cortex remain on the dorsal surface. Abrupt, short and parallel retouch is present along the distal edge forming the scraping surface. The flint is a grey colour with patches of a lighter chalky inclusion…
