Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A sub-cuboidal piece of burnt flint/chert, possibly used as a prehistoric pot boiler. The surface is a greyish white with a crazed surface which is consistant with heating and rapid cooling cycles. Length: 47.09 mm. Width:38.24 mm. Thickness:29.49 mm. Weight:73 grams. FLO comment: The evidence for such stones having been used as pot boilers is limited, and it is possible that this is simply an accidentally burned stone.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pale grey flint with patches of cloudy patina possible Transverse Arrowhead, as kindly identified by the finder. Irregular flake with flakes removed from opposite directions on its dorsal side and with a low bulb on the ventral. A chip at one corner of the putative arrowhead may detract from what was already a fairly irregular form. Suggested date: Late Neolithic, 2700-2350 BC. Length: 22.8mm, Width: 26.5mm, Thickness: 2.4mm, Weight: 1.70gms.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pale buff flint with cortex and cloudy white patina patches Knife. Flake with a single flake removed from its dorsal side and a prominent bulb on the ventral, both from hard hammer strike. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect interrupts the patina and forms a cutting edge along one curving side. Cortex is also removed along from the opposite edge; this and other chips which interrupt cortex or patina could have arisen fortuitously. Both episodes of deliberate working could be accommodated within the Neolithic period. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Le…

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint thickly patinated with cortex possible Plano-Convex Knife. Elongated flake of plano-convex section. Minimal short abrupt pressure flaked retouch along one edge has trimmed cortex to produce a single durable cutting edge. It seems likely that the patination of the ventral surface was acquired before this reworking. Suggested date: Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age, 2700-1600 BC. Length: 45.0mm, Width: 20mm, Thickness: 7.6mm, Weight: 8.79gms.

Dark grey flint with cortex and cloudy patina Plano-Convex Knife. Flake with a bulb on its ventral side and with parallel strips of invasive scalar retouch on both its long sides removing cortex and forming durable cutting edges. These have acquired an identical patina to the ventral side, which extends to an obliquely snapped end. Suggested date: Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age, 2700-1600 BC.

Oblique arrowhead, grey flint with cortex spot and cloudy patches of patina triangular Arrowhead. Leaf-shaped flake with covering retouch on its dorsal side and with faint broad ripples on the ventral. The base of the point is lightly engrailed with an off-centre projection, a form anticipating the barbed and tanged type. Suggested date: Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age, 2700-1600 BC. Length: 24.4mm, Width: 15.8mm, Thickness: 3.9mm, Weight: 1.51gms.

Pale semi-translucent flint Transverse Arrowhead, as kindly identified by the finder. Small flake with long parallel flakes removed from the dorsal side and with a bulb on the ventral, the working of the two sides being at right angles. Short abrupt retouch, probably a single impact, has trimmed what is here taken as the cutting edge of the arrowhead. The projectile must have received nearly all its effect from the combined power of bow and weight of the arrow shaft behind this lightweight head. Suggested date: Late Neolithic, 2700-2350 BC.

Grey flint with cortex and cloudy patina Debitage. A small elongated flake of very slightly curved profile. The accumulation of patina was followed by slight chipping; all could be fortuitous. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 22.2mm, Width: 10.2mm, Thickness: 3.5mm, Weight: 1.00gms.

Opaque pale grey flint with cortex Scraper. A flake of wavy profile with parallel flakes removed from the dorsal side in the course of cortex trimming, and with short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect along its curved edge. The smooth ventral surface, which is reminiscent of a negative hinge fracture, facilitates a grip between finger and thumb. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500 BC. Length: 27.7mm, Width: 23.2mm, Thickness: 6.4mm, Weight: 4.34gms.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Pale grey flint with patches of cloudy patina Scraper. Flake with broad flakes removed from its ventral side and with a bulb on the ventral. Short abrupt pressure flaked retouch removes the thin patina accumulated over a flake struck at some time before this reworking. The lack of patina on retouch may suggest the reworked object was then incorporated into a sealed context. Both episodes could be accommodated by a Neolithic date. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 35.3mm, Width: 17mm, Thickness: 10.6mm, Weight: 5.47gms.

Grey flint with cortex Scraper. Irregular flake trimmed and detached by hard hammer strike and with very short abrupt retouch and battering along a slightly concave edge executed from the dorsal aspect, probably to produce a Hollow Scraper.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark grey flint of good quality, with extensive white patina, Scraper. Oval flake with broad and narrow flakes removed from its dorsal side and rippled on the ventral. Short abrupt retouch of a protruding lobe has removed milky white patina, revealing the darker tint of flint beneath. This must have followed a long period during which the flake was exposed to weathering, and may imply that the struck flake was then recognised as of further value. However, both episodes could be accommodated by a Neolithic date. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 36.5mm, Width: 34.5mm,…

Dark brown flint of good quality Scraper. Flake with broad flakes removed from its dorsal side and with a prominent bulb on the ventral. Invasive retouch, some directed from the edges inwards and executed from the dorsal aspect, appears to have been followed by grinding or battering of parts of the edge, which is probably not fortuitous damage given the good condition of most of the surface. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 36.6mm, Width: 27.7mm, Thickness: 9.5mm, Weight: 10.46gms.

Mottled pale grey flint Knife fragment. Small oval-ended flake with three long parallel flakes removed from the dorsal side, a bulb of percussion on the ventral side, and with very short abrupt and probably pressure flaked retouch along a short [7mm] concave part of one side; the object has broken from a longer flake, though this may have occurred before the retouch facilitating continued use or reuse. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500 BC. Length: 18.1mm, Width: 16.9mm, Thickness: 3.3mm, Weight: 1.36gms.

Grey flint of good quality Knife. Flake with broad flakes removed from its dorsal side and with a striking platform and prominent bulb on the ventral. Very short retouch along one side is executed from the dorsal aspect. The primary working is characteristic of hard hammer strike and the retouch of pressure flaking, while the complete lack of patina and sharp edges suggests incorporation in a sealed context shortly after deposition. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500 BC. Length: 22.8mm, Width: 23.7mm, Thickness: 6.8mm, Weight: 2.66gms.

Grey flint with extensive cloudy patina and a little cortex Knife. Flake with two flakes removed its dorsal side and with a bulb on the ventral. Very short abrupt retouch along one side executed from the dorsal aspect forms a short cutting edge, with the thicker blunt edge with relict cortex on the opposite side opposite affording grip between finger and thumb. The finder kindly cites NLM-257068 as a parallel. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500 BC. Length: 24.6mm, Width: 20.3mm, Thickness: 5.4mm, Weight: 3.10gms.

Dark grey flint with slight cloudy patina patches and with cortex Scraper. Tiny Thumbnail Scraper with short abrupt retouch trimming cortex from the dorsal side and with light rippling on the ventral. The good condition and survival of a sharp spur of projecting flint may suggest this object to have been incorporated and remained in a sealed deposit until relatively shortly before its discovery. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 17.3mm, Width: 18.9mm, Thickness: 4.1mm, Weight: 1.55gms.
