Record ID: NLM-72FD31
Object type: PLANO CONVEX KNIFE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark grey, though appearing brown under transmitted light, semi-translucent flint; plano-convex knife. A thin oval-ended flake with broad and narrow flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb at the narrower end of a slightly concave ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsa;l side appears along one side of the narrower part of the object. A complete lack of surface patina may suggest it was incorporated into a sealed context until recently. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500 BC. Length: 32.0mm, Width: 18.9mm, Thickness: 2.7mm, Weight: 2.85gms

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint lithic implement. A thick pointed flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulbar ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved edge, which would have permitted its use as a scraper. This edge terminates in a point which could have permitted an ancillary use as a borer. Misty patina has formed over all struck surfaces, suggesting the object has subsequently endured a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC Length: 40.8mm, Width: 27mm, Thickness: 11mm, Weight: 10.61gms

Dark grey flint with cortex strip, scraper. A thick oval chunk with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by multangular hard hammer strike, trimming most cortex. The underside is unevenly broken.

Dark grey flint scraper. A small chunk with broad flakes struck from each of its three sides from a flat striking platform, suggesting it to have been a core. Short abrupt retouch following a curved edge marks its conversion to or completion as a scraper. Dense misty patina covers all struck surfaces, suggesting the object has subsequently endured a period of exposure to a calcareous environment.

Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint with cortex possible leaf-shaped arrowhead. A thin oval flake with narrow parallel flakes removed from its dorsal surface, trimming cortex which in part remains. There is a bulb at one end of the basal surface. Patches of misty patina may suggest the object has endured exposure to a calcareous environment after its deposition. The finder kindly suggests this to be debitage, perhaps in this case as an unfinished arrowhead.

Grey flint fabricator fragment. An oval section tool with covering angled scalar retouch across both its sides, rounded at one end and flat at the other. The latter may evidence an ancient break, as a light misty patina extends across all surfaces, suggesting the object has endured a limited period of exposure to a calcareous environment.

Flint plano-convex knife fragment. The pointed end of a knife with a curved dorsal surface bearing covering angled scalar retouch, and with a flat ventral surface. A misty patina has developed over all surfaces including the fractured end, showing the object was broken in antiquity, and has subsequently endured exposure to a calcareous environment.

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint possible backed blade. An oval flake with broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, a near-flat ventral surface, and a narrow long flake struck from along one edge of the ventral surface which may have permitted pressure to be exerted on the putative cutting edge opposite. The scalloped or serrated appearance of the cutting edge is perhaps a result of fortuitous edge-on impacts, albeit occuring in antiquity. A dense creamy patina overall suggests the object has subsequently endured a prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC

Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows part of a curved edge. Part of the thicker part or butt is lost to an ancient break. A dense creamy patina suggests the object subsequently endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment.

Stone polished axe head. A grey-green fine-grained volcanic tuf, here taken to be from Langdale, Cumbria, formed into a polished Group 6 axe head of oval form and section. The finder kindly notes this rounded section contrasts with the facetted edges seen on other examples from the vicinity. Some small chips or surface irregularities may have been inflicted and rubbed down before or during the working life of the axehead. The narrow butt is lightly battered. The primary use as an axe, however, ended with the controlled removal of the cutting edge from the broader end either by batterin…
