Record ID: LIN-A69390
Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A collection of three flint secondary and tertiary bladelets of Mesolithic to early Neolithic date (c. 10,000 BC - 4000 BC). They are brownish grey in colour and semi-translucent at the edges. 1) The first bladelet is long and sub-rectangular in plan, with long sides that are almost parallel. It is rounded at the proximal end and square at the distal end. It is sub-trapezoidal in cross-section.The ventral face is generally flat and smooth, with a shallow bulb of percussion. There may be some very fine, short, scaled retouching at the distal end. Overall dimensions: 37.63mm in length…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint scraper dating to the later Neolithic or Bronze Age (c. 3000 BC - 1150 BC). The object is broadly oval shaped, with a flattened butt and rounded working edge. Struck from a core of mottled dark to medium grey flint, a tertiary flake with none of the cortex being retained. The platform is sub-triangular in plan and secondary modification in the form of directly applied scaled retouch is visible at the distal end. Preserved in fresh condition and largely unpatinated. The overall dimensions are as follows: 41.6mm in length, 28.84mm in width, 11.95mm in thickness …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint scraper. A small chip with broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with an originally concave ventral surface. Angled scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect follows a curved edge, leaving a partial striking platform from earlier working as a butt. Discontinuous patches of thick creamy patina on this side only may suggest a subsequent period of exposure to a calcareous environment, and a presumably abrasive episode thereafter which has in part removed it. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 20.1mm, Width: 22.4mm, Thickness: 6.3mm, Weigh…

Grey-green flint, banded with grey, with cortex; core fragment. A chunk with an oblique ventral surface which may show where it has split from a larger core. On the original dorsal surface long narrow parallel flake removal scars indicate unidirectional working from a now-lost striking platform. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Height: 36.7mm, Width: 27.5mm, Thickness: 15.5mm, Weight: 11.85gms

County: Lincolnshire

Dark opaque chocolate brown flint, possibly collected from the East Coast; debitage. A thick flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by multangular hard hammer strike, and with a markedly concave ventral surface. Flint of this distinctive tint is occasionally reported from this region, where grey flint predominates, is usually of earlier date, and is sometimes worked exceptionally well. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Length: 53.4mm, Width: 27mm, Thickness: 18mm, Weight: 20.95gms

Grey flint with cortex debitage. Two flakes, one larger [length 43.5mm] and of sub-triangular shape, the other smaller [length: 21.7mm]. Both have had broad flakes struck from their dorsal sides by hard hammer, and both have slightly concave ventral surfaces. The larger flake bears thick white patina indicating it has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment. The smaller flake lacks this, and was perhaps in a sealed context until recently. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Combined Weight: 5.72gms

Grey flint with cortex debitage. Three small flakes. One has ancient creamy patina so thick as to constitute cortex, which has developed over previously struck surfaces, to be itself removed by subsequent hard hammer impact. This and another, similar, flake have a bulbar ventral surface over which misty patina indicates exposure to a calcareous environment. A third flake bears scars from the removal of broad flakes from its dorsal side and a flat ventral surface. In this case, only one end of the object bears misty patina suggesting exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date…

Grey translucent flint of good quality with cortex strip, appearing honey coloured under transmitted light; backed blade. A small narrow flake with long parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a small bulb at one end of a slightly concave ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect may follow one long edge, though these small scars might have arisen from adventitious impacts. The retention of cortex on the opposite long edge, however, may show this to be deliberate. There is no patina, in contrast to most of the accompanying material. Sugge…

Grey flint with cortex, core. A chunk with long parallel flakes removed by probably unidirectional hard hammer working. White misty patina has developed over struck surfaces, suggesting the object endured exposure to a calcareous environment after its deposition. This is lost to subsequent adventitious impacts.

Grey flint with cortex, scraper. A small thick chunk with parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, trimming some cortex, and with an originally bulbar ventral surface. The latter received further trimming removing narrow parallel flakes, followed by long angled retouch executed from the ventral aspect following a curving edge. The relict cortex may have been retained to facilitate use of the tool. Misty patina indicates the object was exposed to a calcareous environment after its deposition. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Length: 29mm, Width: 32.8mm, Thickness:…

Flint with cortex spot, burnt flint. A small chip with a bulbar ventral surface, where crazing from burning appears. Probably a small chip of debitage; accompanying material of similar size was considered later Mesolithic in its date, which should equally apply here. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC.

Flint, two with cortex spot, debitage. Eight small flakes and bladelets, with broad and narrow flakes struck from their dorsal sides, as long parallel flakes in the case of the narrower fragments. The ventral surfaces are flat, bulbar or concave. Misty white patina has developed to varying degrees, reflecting exposure to a calcareous environment after their deposition.

Flint. A chip of lightly burnt flint with concentric crazing visible on both sides, and battered between them. Probably a fragment of debitage caught up in a fire.

Grey flint microlith. A small narrow flake with long narrow parallel bladelets struck from its dorsal side and with a slightly concave ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect defines a hollow in one long edge, while the opposite edge may bear very fine serrations, more easily felt than observed. Creamy patina on struck surfaces suggests the object has endured a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC.
