Record ID: PUBLIC-291E0C
Object type: POT BOILER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An egg-shaped pebble of white flint or chert with a large area of off-white cortex remaining. The remaining cortex is crazed with fine cracks over its surface. The underlying flint or chert has larger, deeper cracks passing through the body of the pebble. This is almost certainly due to thermal action and suggests that the pebble was used as a pot-boiler. It is unusual, however, to use flint or chert in this way as it has a tendancy to explode. The pebble was found in association with late Neolithic and Bronze-Age deposits and probably dates to the Bronze-Age.
